So i put my ipod in my ipod dock to play in my room and it worked at first but then it just stopped and i went over to check and the screen was a kinda of off black color and there was just a darker thick line across the top and then i tried reseting it from there but then it just wont turn on. so i tried putting it on my computer but it wont even charge or turn on. its just a black screen and nothing shows up. please help :(
Ok what i would sugest is leaving it for a little while and see if it repairs it self if not the on switch just flick it up really quickly try that a few times hold it and then leave it and then flick it up quickly that worked for me so it sould work for you.

Had the same problem. I resolved it by removing my iPod from the dock and unplugging the SoundDock. I waited a few seconds and plugged the SoundDock back in. I then placed my iPod back into the dock.
I played a song and tried to use the right/skip button to skip to the next song. At first it didn't work. Then, I held the right button down for a few seconds. After that, all buttons worked just fine.
I hope this works for you. In case it doesn't, here is what the user manual says:
• Remove your iPod from the dock, wait five seconds, then firmly reseat the iPod in the dock. • Try the remote from a different location. If it works there, check for interference from bright room lights or sunlight. Wipe off the small lens on the front end of the remote with a clean, dry cloth.
• Make sure there is a clear pathway between the remote lens and your SoundDock system.
• Remove and reinsert the battery as shown on page 6.
• Replace the remote control battery as shown on page 6.
I had this problem for the pat two days. Believe it or not I took my Ipod touch of the dock. Shut the power off to the Ipod to reset it. Also the power to the docking station. turned everything back on. Put the Ipod back into the docking station and heard the beep.. and hit play and it was working again. Not sure but shutting Ipod off does act like a reset.
Welcome to the wonderful world of the iHome frying the Ipod. Your iHome, has most likely fried the mainboard on your ipod. to check plug a usb into the ipod and connect to the computer. if it comes up disconnect the usb and try a headphones in the jack. if it doesn;t play sound its fried and you will need a new mainboard. if it does play through the headphone jack, your lucky and keep it off the dock.
I have fixed at least 30 ipods taken out by ihome docks and other docks. they are terrible for the ipod. Even Apple sells the docks on their website that shows how much they care about the product.
When I first got my ipod touch and my ihome I had no problems and then all of a sudden everything worked except for the ihome wouldn't play music. It charged properly and the alarm and clock worked fine just the music wouldn't play. So I assumed it was the ihome and took it back and exchanged it only to get home and have the exact same problem. So I reset my Ipod and it worked. To do it you have to hold the sleep button until the red slider appears. Slide your finger across it to turn off. Press and hold the sleep button until the apple comes on. Next I sync'ed and looke dfor an update. After all this I docked it and it worked.
