Question about Audio Players & Recorders
does it work on the charger? if not, then contact apple or your dealer for more assistance or repairs.
If it works on the charger, plays music and so on, your battery is probably dead and you need a new one.

Try resetting into disk mode by holding down "MENU" and the centre round button for a couple of seconds at the same time, let it charge for a couple of minutes - important, eject it from your hard drive first, quit all applications that work with your iPod, then press the "MENU" and round button at the same time again press the play button - it should go to a grey screen with a apple on it - re-atach your iPod to the machine again - it should now look like its charging, and should launch iTunes again giving you full functionality to your iPod again - let it fully recharge before unplugging.
