Your iPod Won't Turn On" from the Apple Support Site provides in-depth instructions for troubleshooting an iPod that won't turn on. Apple recommends that you: 1. Make sure the Hold switch is off
2. Make sure the battery is charged
3. Reset iPod
4. Let iPod's battery drain
5. Update iPod's software
6. Make sure iPod is the only device in your FireWire or USB chain. Disconnect everything but the mouse, keyboard, and your iPod, then see if it will turn on.
7. Make sure you are using the FireWire or USB cable that came with your iPod, and that the cable is in good condition.
8. Try connecting iPod to the built-in port of a different computer to see if that works.
"iPod Stops Responding or Won't Wake From Sleep" from the Apple Support Site notes that you need to "charge your iPod, then reset your iPod" if it won't turn off or wake up.

I connected the iPod Video 80 GB to my computer. it started charging but when i took it off, it wont let me pause the song and when i hit the menu button, it says: Do not disconnect. Even though its not...

Try hooking it back up to your computer and doing a restore. This solves a lot of strange problems on iPods.
Be advised it will wipe the unit clear and you'll need to restore all your music.

Ipod shows, makes strange noise

If your iPod is making strange noises, you have a broken hard-drive. They're quite easy to replace though and I'll be able to guide you, if you can source the part.

My ipod wont switch on

I would suggest you take it in to the apple store for repair already. Most often this type of problem is hardware related already.

I tried jail breaking ipod and it wont turn on

Okay. if your jailbreaking is not working than it is something to do with who or from where you bought your ipod or the jailbreak program. If you are wanting to jailbreak your ipod i reaccoment the program HiJackThis it worked on my old ipod touch. But A word of warning. after i jailbreaked by ipod i dropped it and the screen cracked. they would not fix my iPod for the single reason that by "Jail Breaking" your iPod you break you warrenty and Apple will no longer repair it.

Wont turn on

Have you tried to reset the iPod? The first reset to try is a "soft" one where you just turn the hold switch on and off. If that does nothing, hold down the play and centre buttons together for about 10 seconds. More info is here:

My ipod is not working

The problem is with the hard drive. If you feel comfortable enough opening the iPod, you can buy a replacement hard drive on eBay, open it up (there are special pry tools you can buy on eBay that won't scratch the case, but if you don't mind you can use a small flathead screwdriver) and replace the hard drive.
