It's turning off by self after 1 minute

The Apple iPod may experience technical problems such as turning off and on at random. It is important to note what the iPod does after it turns back on. The main cause of your iPod malfunctioning may be determined by the device's behavior after being powered on.

One simple reason may be that the iPod is not fully charged. Try to see if the battery light is fully charged when it turns back on. The device may turn off briefly to conserve power and turn back on since it is not properly turned off. If the only thing that appears on the screen is the Apple icon and the main menu does not load, you may need to restore the system. Restore b> Apple admits that some iPod products may suffer from software problems. If this happens, the iPod needs to be restored, or re-booted. Apple suggests putting the iPod into disk mode. Once you press the initialize disk option on the disk mode screen, the system will restore itself. Consequences b> All data will be lost if you restore the system. Apple recommends that you have a back up file for all your iPod data before restoring the iPod. How to reset iPod iPod only shows an Apple logo and doesn't start up

My ipod says disabled and try again in 21,345,432 minutes..please help

This explains how to do a hard rest on the IPOD, if you haven't tried it already

To perform an iPod Touch hard reset, start by turning the iPod Touch on. Press and hold down the sleep/wake button until you see the Apple logo on the screen. Next, you need to turn the iPod Touch completely off. Press and hold down the sleep/wake button until you see the red slider. Slide the slider to turn off the iPod Touch. This should fix any potential problems you are having with your iPod Touch.
If you are unable to turn off iPod Touch, you can try doing a manual reset. To do so, hold down the sleep/wake button and home button at the same time. Continue to hold them for at least 10-15 seconds. Wait for the Apple logo to appear.

Good luck!

I just turned my ipod off and now it wont switch on and i am trying to charge it right now(i pressed the home key and the power key and it just turned black)

Can you see the apple logo or just black screen?
If only black screemn, it means you entered DFU mode. To get out of it, press home and sleep buttons for exactly 10 seconds until the apple logo appears.
Is this iPod jailbroken? If you're stuck on the apple logo, you need Redsnow to boot tether your iPod.
If you're still having problems, your last resort is to restore the iPod which means all your data will be erased. But try the first two suggestions first. Let me know if this works for you. :)

My ipod nano wont do anything

  1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
  2. 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.

Hope this helps

First make sure your hold switch isn't on. It's on the top and slides back and forth. It needs to be switched to the left. If it is to the left, here's how you reset:

You can reset your ipod by holding down the menu and select (round button in the center) buttons down for at least 10 seconds. You'll see an apple logo flash, that's when you stop pressing the buttons. It will shut off, then back on.
