Try This next time ....
Not all, but many 5G iPod owners have had issues with the latest iPod updates, I had this problem myself a day ago & was almost ready to send it in for a replacement, some HAVE sent theirs in. Anyways, after updating the iPod the iPod no longer works!! All you get is a blank white screen (White Screen Of Death), 3 beeping tones and you hear the hard drive click. Simply resetting the iPod will do nothing, but get you another three beeps & a click. But to resolve this issue do the following, this had worked for me as well as others...

Extended Reset
1) Move the LOCK to the "ON" position.
2) Move it back to the "OFF" position.
3) Hold the "Centre" button then hold down the "MENU" button until you hear the harddrive make the "click" noise.
4) As soon as you hear the drive "click" press and hold the "Centre" button then press & hold the Play/Pause button, you should then see the Apple Logo" like normal and it should then start up like with no problem.

I've taken a screen from a faulty 4GB nano which just shows the iPod support error sign and put it in an 8GB nano which shows a white screen and beeps twice. Restores with iTunes fine. Even put the screen back again to check and it works fine, so it may not be that the screen's dead!

Hi You can try the troubleshooting guide below, If in case the troubleshooting guide will not work I highly suggest to contact apple technical support .
iPod Nano 2nd Generation Troubleshooting
The second generation iPod introduced a new design and lots of improvements to the player's technology. The new Nano boasted a new enclosure made of aluminum, a slimmer design with rounded corners, a brighter screen, new headphones and a wide selection of colors. The flash drive made hard drive failure less likely, making these a long-lasting mp3 player option. The iPod Nano can fail eventually, but when yours looks dead, all may not be lost.
Hold and ChargeThe first thing to do if you have an iPod that is not turning on is to check to see if the hold button it is engaged. If it is, slide the button to the left to take the iPod off hold and see if the buttons work. If not, check to see whether the iPod is charged. Try plugging your iPod into your computer or a wall socket. If the iPod does not respond, do further troubleshooting.
RestartAfter checking to see if your iPod is charged, you should try restarting your iPod. Hold down the menu and center button on your iPod until it restarts. You will see the Apple icon. If this does not work, move to the next step.
RetryTry another USB cord if your computer does not recognize the iPod. If the new USB cord works, it was the previous USB cord at fault.
ResetIf your computer does not recognize your iPod, try restarting the the computer. It may be that the software on your computer is at fault, and not the actual iPod.
ReinstallIf your iPod is not recognized by your computer, try reinstalling iTunes. Sometimes a fault in the iTunes software will prevent the iPod from being recognized by your computer. Download the iTunes software from the Apple website and install on your computer.
RestoreIf your iPod is not responding, you may need to restore. If your computer recognizes your iPod select your iPod from the left menu in iTunes. Click the restore button from the menu under the picture of your iPod. Make sure that all of the music on your iPod is backed up somewhere else, as the restore will erase the contents of your iPod.
