How old is the battery ipod batteries can only be recharged a certain ammount of times before they need replacing
If an iPod appears not to turn on, check the hold switch on the device. If this switch is activated while the device is off, it will not power on again until the hold switch is turned off.
If that is determined not to be the problem, the battery's charge should be checked. When the battery is no longer holding a charge, the device will not power on, but will show a battery icon on the screen for a few seconds. If you see this icon while trying to boot up the iPod, just connect it to the USB cable and allow the battery to charge, which can sometimes take up to 30 minutes before the iPod becomes operable again.
If no battery icon appears when trying to turn on the device, try resetting the iPod. Once reset, the device should turn on, but if it does not, the battery may need to be drained first (by leaving the iPod disconnected from power for up to 24 hours), and the reset procedure tried again. hope this helps
When the IPod is connected to the computer, it also charges the battery.
Leave the IPod connected to the computer for several hours so it can charge the IPod's battery.
When you disconnect the IPod after several hours and it still turns off, then the IPod's battery is dead and needs to be replaced.
Connect your iPod to the primary computer you use it with (the first one iPod synced with), and open iTunes. When you disconnect iPod from the computer, it will no longer be locked. If you can't unlock iPod using either [the code or connecting it to the computer you use to manage its songs]. . . you can restore your iPod to factory settings using iPod Updater. Please note that this will erase all data on your iPod. Afterwards, you can add your music and data back to your iPod.
Connect your iPod to your computer and open iTunes. When you disconnect iPod from the computer, it should no longer be locked. This will only work with the computer that you first used when you first connected your iPod and ran iTunes.

If you want to to do this, connect your iPod to your computer and run iTunes. Click on your iPod on the left side of iTunes, then click on the "Restore" button on the right. After it's been restored, click on the "Sync" button to copy all your music and videos back onto your iPod.
Just charge the battery until the indicator says the battery is full. well since its been connected for more than enought, disconnect it, you can also try reseting the ipod incase it has frozen
To reset your iPod:
1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
2. Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 10 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.
If you are having difficulty resetting your iPod, set it on a flat surface. Make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel, and not near the center.
If the above steps did not work, try connecting iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep.
