When an ipod battery is flat it needs to be charged for a while before it will turn on. Depending on how flat the battery is it may take up to half an hour. If the battery is too old it may not be able to hold a charge at all.

If you iPod is charging and is off the screen will display a battery with a lightning bolt. To turn the iPod on simple make sure the hold switch is set so you cannot see the red and press any button.

I tried to restore my ipod back to its factory settings... It cut off and back on and now it acts as if its loading. It said it would take an hour but its going on 2days now. Then when I plug it up it...

If you try a different power cord and still get the low battery symbol (plug and lightning bolt) after leaving it sitting for a while, then you may need a new battery. After replacing the battery, if you still need to, you should be able to restore your ipod without a problem. Hope this helps!

Flash wont work and lightning bolt flashes when trying to take the picture

The flashing lightning bolt is your camera telling you it's trying to charge the flash but can't get enough power from the battery. Is the battery old...been charged many times...neglected and left to completely discharge? Any of these things can reduce the capacity of a battery.

Ipod froze

Try this which should reset your ipod: First, toggle your hold switch back and forward and put it back to the off position. Then press and hold the menu button and the center button simultaneously for about six seconds and the screen should go blank and the apple logo should appear. After that it should work.
