It sounds like the battery has shorted out. Ship this guy out and have his battery replaced ASAP! This is a giveaway with the heat. Please note that it is "problem solved!"

    It is a circuitboard short. It needs to be repaired and/or replaced by apple. Aren't you still under warranty?

    Let me know! Please change to solved or almost there, this hurts my ratings and I will continue to try and help...

    Thanks!

    Without an expert microcircuitry background, it isnt able to be fixed. And apple will just replace it. It may honestly just be worth it to go buy a new ipod, but you can also send it into Apple. That is more hassle but likely a bit cheaper!

    Thanks! Please mark this as solved!

There may be two reasons why the iPod will not charge.
1-the charging port may need to be replaced, look into where you hook up and see if there is any damage to the prongs within. There are very fine connections that lay on a hard plastic stub (charging port) if any pins are bent; out of place; or missing the connection would not be possible and will not get charged
2-the battery may need to be replaced. The battery sometimes dies and unable to recharge if you've allowed the battery to be exhausted completely before charging it.

How do I find if my iPod touch battery is dead?


<p>When the iPod touch battery dies, you cannot do anything with the device. You will receive a warning on the screen of the iPod touch, when 5 percent of the battery turns on the device. Connect the device to a power source as soon as possible to load and prevent the battery goes dead. When the battery dies, the unit will shut down and will be connected to a power and charged before you can use <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Press the iPod touch "Sleep / Wake" button, located along the upper side of the machine. If your iPod does not care, this is an indicator that the battery is dead. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Connect a charging cable to charge your iPod and connect the USB cable to a power of high power. High-power USB ports directly on your computer tower or, if the hardware usually found in the tower on the monitor, the monitor itself. The iPod touch screen shows a big red battery icon on the far left of the icon, indicating that the battery was empty. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Press the "Sleep / Wake" to see if the iPod is connected. If so, check the battery life, looking at the battery icon in the upper right corner of the screen. When the icon appears white, the battery is full when the icon is half black, the battery is almost dead, and if the battery is almost dead, you will receive a warning. If the iPod does not start, the battery is completely dead. In this case, your iPod into electronics store and have the battery replaced. <br />

Flashing icons while charging... am I really charging?


If the iPod is showing the "Sad iPod face" icon, this means that the hard drive inside the iPod (located on the logic/circuit board) has died/failed and needs to be replaced. If you plan on replacing this part, you may also need to purchase and solder a new battery to the iPod logic board if you were to do it yourself.

80GB video ipod is not turning on.instead the apple symbol blinks


Connect the ipod to your computer and let it sit for about fifteen minutes. Then it should show up in your computer and under itunes. Usually, if your ipod dies completely, when you try to charge it using a wall or car charger, it will do that, just flashing the apple logo and going back off. Leaving it plugged up to the computer will allow the battery to charge just enough so that it can sync with itunes. While it is plugged into the computer and charging, it should say something like, battery very low, charging. It should work after letting it sit plugged up to the computer.

I have questions for any ipod user


What is your problem? The ipod doesn't die. Believe it or not but there's a battery inside of the ipod that if you want it to be repaired. Don't send it to the apple company, they'll charge you a **** load to replace the battery. You can find an ipod battery $10-$30 easy on the net&the proper instructions on the net you can replace the battery yourself!
