Try a reset:

How to reset iPod To reset an iPod with a Click Wheel, including:iPod nano (3rd generation) iPod classic iPod (5th generation) iPod nano (2nd generation)iPod nano iPod with color display (iPod photo) iPod (Click Wheel) iPod mini iPod mini (2nd generation)

Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds.

You may need to repeat this step. Tip: If you are having difficulty resetting your iPod, set it on a flat surface. Make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel, and not near the center.

If the above steps did not work, try connecting iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep.

(Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)Press and hold the Play/Pause and Menu buttons simultaneously until the Apple/iPod logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.

If the above steps did not work, try connecting iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep.

If you are still unable to reset your iPod, use only one finger from one hand to press the Center (Select) button, and one finger from the other hand to press the Menu button.When you reset iPod all your music and files are saved, but some customized settings may be lost. Date and time is preserved (unless the iPod reset itself because it had no power and then was reconnected to power). Other customized settings, such as Bookmarks, On-The-Go Playlists, Shuffle, Backlight timer, and so forth are preserved from the last time the hard drive turned on.

SOURCE: Ipod won't turn on 3rd generation silver

Has the battery been charged lately? If not, try charging it first and then try to turn it on. If that is not the case your ipod probably just needs to be reset. Try pressing the center button with the menu button together and hold those two buttons together for about 6-10 seconds. You should get an apple icon that comes on before you will see your menu for your applications.

95% of the time, when you get the sad face or now on the new 6th generation classics and 3rd and 4th generation nanos it's a cross, it means that you have a faulty hard drive. You can buy hard drives for reasonable prices on ebay. You'll be looking for a Toshiba MK8010GAH if you're using a 5th generation iPod video, and if you're on the 6th generation classic you'll be looking for either a Toshiba MK8022GAA or a Samsung HS081HA. The Samsung's are more reliable.

Test the hard drive by holding menu+centre to reset and immediatly holding left+centre when it reboots to enter the ipod diagnostic menu. Use the right arrow to highlight the Memory or HDD menu. Select it and you should be able to find out if the drive is dead.

If the drive is ok, try restoring the ipod through itunes.


Post back here if the drive is wrecked.
