    Thanks Rockitman. Should have been obvious, but it is relatively new and not used that much. Still, will try.

Charge the battery


If the rechargeable battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out. Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles and will lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% and gradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR The battery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the battery drops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to an unacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

Why wont my ipod touch turn on i turned it off and it wont come o


Hold the power button and home button for 10 seconds to ensure the device is off. Let go.

Hold the home button down, plug in the ipod to the computer, after the screen changes to the itunes plug screen, let go of the home button.

The ipod will now be in recovery mode, and you can attempt to perform a restore within itunes.

If the restore fails, and the ipod screen stays black, this means the battery is dead and must be replaced.

My ipod wont recharge


If you are using the same charging cable, you might check the cable. Borrow a friends cable to see if you can charge and if you can charge with someone elses cable, buy a new one for yourself.

IPod freezes


Every battery has a life span. Li-ion batteries do not have a memory in them like the nickel ones do, but the Li-ion's only can charge up to xxx amount of times.

With that said, your battery is most likely going bad if not already, great way to test it is to run it completely dead.

There are procedures on how to do this involves you opening up the IPOD and and tampering with the insides. I suggest if your not fimilar then to take it to a shop.

Blank and wont charge


Try the "Five R's" as found on Apples website. If still no go, then it's probably time for a new battery or a new Ipod.
