Listen to the iPod when it is connected to the computer. Do you hear repetitive clicking sounds from the hard drive? If so, your hard drive is broken. It's not too hard to replace the hard drive yourself. Here is an iPod Repair Guide that shows how to open an iPod. Parts are easily available on Ebay. If you want somebody else to do it for you go to iPad Repair
Hi, I would suspect either a bad screen, or a bad battery. Can you hear the hard drive turning? Put it next to your ear and see if you hear a whirling sound. If you can hear that, then your screen is gone and needs to be replaced.
Try plugging it into a wall charger. If it comes on then it is the battery. The computer often does not have enough power to make it light up if the battery is really bad. Hope that helps.
This sounds like the "white screen of death" that some ipods suffer. Try plugging in your headphones and see if you can still hear the clicks when turning the clickwheel, aslo if you can get a song to play.
There are a number of different solutions that people have done to solve this.
One is to keep turning the ipod on and off until the battery wears down completely, then reconnect to your PC or wall A/C adapter.
sounds like you need a new hard drive, which has a little read-write disk in it that is getting finicky... just to get more use out of it lay it on side or other positions and hear if works ok...if so its diffently Hard drive.
you know the sandisks are 2 gigs no moving parts why doesnt somebody put 20 together making 40 gigs and replace the failing Ipods!!??? just pure electronics and no moving parts and much smaller...not like a hard drive. I thought of this over 30 years ago looking at the first plug in video game.
