IPod Touch pins are bent and broken

by pins do you mean on the cable or in the socket of the device? if it is the cable replace at any electronic store that carries apple products or find an apple store near you to purchase a new one. if it is the socket on the bottom you must have it repaired at an apple store or ship it to them.

Ipod classic

try the hard reset: press menu button and action button for 5 sec together while it is plugged into the charger. if it still doesn't connect after the restart you may need a new logic board. you can try to do it yourself: iPod classic repair guide. look into the dock connector, if you see broken or bent pins, then that is why it doesn't connect, otherwise there is an electronic issue with the logic board.

My zune won't charge

It's likely you have a motherboard issue. In some cases the dock connector is physically broken (pins get bent or break off), in other cases the charching circuitry becomes defective.
The only way to get it up and running again is to replace the logic board, the part is readily available on ebay. There are zune repair guides that will show you how to replace the logic board or have a tech savy friend do it for you.

Ipod is Not Being Recognized by Computer

First ipod cables only work on ipod.
Second if you bent the connections (even just one) so that it is not connecting inside your ipod you will need to get that fixed.
You should reboot your computer and try again first though.

No sound

first off, check the volume...easy enough...

if not, the ipod 5th gen's are notorious for the headphone jack pins getting bent and broken...if this is the case, you need to buy a new headphone jack and replace it (there are many websites that you can buy/offer a replacement service)

Need help

If it is in warranty, call Sansa and get a replacement. If not, get a new player, b/c no one will repair it - it is not cost-effective to repair an mp3 player with damage that extensive.
