to reset an ipod you flip the hold switch on the back off then hold the middle button and play/pause button at then same time until you see the apple logo. a reset is the only thing you can do besides letting the battery drain. (this happened to me also i suspected a certain song of causing it if it happens again try to recall the song playing) also i would clear the ipods music and re-sync it
Try holding down the menu/center button for at least 10-15 seconds, if that does not reset it try the center button and play/pause combo for the same time period (I used to have the same model as you, one of these 2 combos usually worked).
You can also try connecting your ipod to another computer with iTunes on it to see if its a software or hardware problem with your iPod. Or you can uninstall/reinstall iTunes and see what happens after a fresh install
and yea you can let the battery run out overnight if you want, but if you do get to fix it I'd say back up your music on the iPod through a program like iDump or something in the meantime
Well first I have a question that may seem silly. Are you using iTunes? If not you will need to start doing so. Apple designs the iPod to only work properly with itunes. There for many other media players may sync the ipod for a time but eventually it will stop working. If so you may want to restore the iPod then attempt to re-sync everything. If this does not work you most likely have a hardware issue. If any of this seems unclear or you need advice on how to perform these tasks please do let me know. :-)
You may want to try calling apple. even if it is no longer under warranty, they can still provide you with helpful information as to whether its repairable or not...if under warranty, they will most likely repair it...or send you a new or refurbished one. Otherwise, it may be more worth it to get a new one, unfortunately.
