This sounds likely it’s a USB power issue .Make sure you have a full power USB connection (many laptops and keyboard connectors only give 100mA max rather than the full 500mA, also do not connect via an unpowered hub either as this only PARTLY charges the ipod. Next connect it direct to the computer on a full power USB port or via a powered hub (mains transformer connected to it) and it should be OK.
Leave it charging on this for at least an hour before proceeding further. Make sure you have the latest itunes 8.0.2 (downloaded on your PC from then restart PC first) and reset the ipod before connection (menu and centre key till screen blanks then connect once it lights up).
Then say YES to the 'pair with this computer' Message if after doing the USB power check you still have problems you need to call apple for a swap for replacement... as batteries can be killed by improper usage apple has a page at that tells you how to get the most from your battery or the update could be iffy take it to either a friend with a Mac if you use a PC or a friend with a PC if you have a Mac - this can fix it if not try taking it to your local apple store or the shop you bought it from.
Let us know if you have something more to know else accept the suggestion.

Unfreezing ipod otuch 2nd generation

Hi linda_wat834
When the Apple Logo is stuck
If this happens, put the iPod into Disk Mode through the diagnostic menu. Then connect the iPod to your computer and update or restore the iPod.
Sometimes you can get away with just updating the iPod, so try that first, but usually you have to restore the iPod .
As always make backups of your music files, because the restore procedure will eliminate them.

The slide bar will not slide to unlock on my ipod touch 2nd generation. I've tried restarting. It holds a charge and I can play it on my docking station. I can't use it by itself.

I had the same problem with my iPod touch 3rd Generation, the slide bar will not slide to unlock. I could however use the slide to power off at the top of the screen. I tried everything from rebooting it to a full restore and nothing worked. I finally took the Touch Screen Glass Digitizer off and the ribbon cable that connects to the board had come loose. I pluged it back in and everything worked again.
