Re: will not work anymore
The first common thing to replace on an ipod is the battery inside. The second thing if its not that is the hard drive could go bad. They are delicate to work on, so reccomend have someone whos opened them up before to help you. If its under warranty still, then take it to apple store.

I had this problem for the pat two days. Believe it or not I took my Ipod touch of the dock. Shut the power off to the Ipod to reset it. Also the power to the docking station. turned everything back on. Put the Ipod back into the docking station and heard the beep.. and hit play and it was working again. Not sure but shutting Ipod off does act like a reset.
To get the humming noise to stop when listening to your iPod while it's docked, you have to use the projector feature AND keep the backlight on on your iPod. My projector stopped working and I'm trying to figure out how to get it going again (replace the bulb?) so I can stop the humming noise again. The unit is not being made anymore, probably because of this problem.
It sounds like you should reset the Ipod. Don't worry, it won't erase anything on it. Here's how: Press and hold both the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
If that doesn't help, look at this page which describes pretty much all the issues you could have with your Ipod Touch and how to solve them: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1394
the apple ipod are very delicate and it seems that docks are very harsh on the internal workings IE: motherboard of the ipod. it not just the touch, it's all ipods. My suggestion is to check the headphone jack and if you get sound, don;t play your ipod on the dock at all. Your dock has probably done some damage to the audio circuit on the board. If you get sound through the headphone jack save your ipods life and just use it through the jack. I have replaced numerous motherboards on ipods played on docks. they just don;t handle the charging and playing very well whether it's heat or just the wrong voltage I am not sure. But my first question to a customer is have you played it on a dock. I would stay away from the dock
well your lucky the dock gave up the ghost before your ipod. it's possible there is some damage to your ipod also but those docks will fry your ipod toot sweet. I would not use the dock at all but if you are i would first try hooking your ipod up to a computer with a usb just to make sure it's not damaged in the charging port.
if you have a RCA jack in the dock you can use that, but the ipod is not made to play through the charging port, the docks are an after thought and I am not sure why but possibly incorrect voltage or voltage surges, but i have replaced at least 30 motherboards of customers who played them on docks. your ipod wouldn't by chance be a 30gb video or a 3rd gen nano? seems those are the 2 most susceptible to this issue.
My Warning: if it still plays music leave it off the dock
