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.

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!

The bottom part of my ipod is bent

so basicly the bottom connector is broke. possibly the whole mainboard would need to be replaced or simply the connector replaced

Apple repairs

Some tech might replace the parts for 40-60usd. I cant say for sure since I dont know how bad it is.

IPod Battery

You should try using a different USB cable and connecting to a different USB port and seeing if the problem persists. If it does, the problem's probably with the iPod's logic board.
