Try resetting the iPod, this usually works.

As follows:

How to reset iPod To reset an iPod with a Click Wheel, including:iPod nano (3rd generation) iPod classic iPod (5th generation) iPod nano (2nd generation)iPod nano iPod with color display (iPod photo) iPod (Click Wheel) iPod mini iPod mini (2nd generation)

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

If the above steps did not work, try connecting iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep.

To reset iPod, iPod (scroll wheel), iPod (touch wheel), and iPod (dock connector)Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)Press and hold the Play/Pause and Menu buttons simultaneously until the Apple/iPod logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.

If the above steps did not work, try connecting iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep.

If you are still unable to reset your iPod, use only one finger from one hand to press the Center (Select) button, and one finger from the other hand to press the Menu button.When you reset iPod all your music and files are saved, but some customized settings may be lost. Date and time is preserved (unless the iPod reset itself because it had no power and then was reconnected to power). Other customized settings, such as Bookmarks, On-The-Go Playlists, Shuffle, Backlight timer, and so forth are preserved from the last time the hard drive turned on.

SOURCE: 8 GB Ipod Nano went dead and now won't charge

Try resetting into disk mode by holding down "MENU" and the centre round button for a couple of seconds at the same time, let it charge for a couple of minutes - important, eject it from your hard drive first, quit all applications that work with your iPod, then press the "MENU" and round button at the same time again press the play button - it should go to a grey screen with a apple on it - re-atach your iPod to the machine again - it should now look like its charging, and should launch iTunes again giving you full functionality to your iPod again - let it fully recharge before unplugging.

put your ipod in disk mode by following these steps.
press and hold the Menu and Center buttons on the clickwheel. when you see the apple appear, switch your fingers to the center and play/pause buttons.
whena check mark appears plug it into you computer and it should detect and mount.
add music and have fun.

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.

Charges, plays on docking station,but doesn't play when removed.


try doing a firmware update when you plug it into your computer, there should be an option in iTunes in the My iPod section to check for new firmware.

2GB nano wont charge


Check this first. Both computers have USB2. Both computers are awake. iPods will not charge from USB1 or when the computer is asleep. Check the computers and cord is ok by plugging in another iPod. If the iPod is still under warranty, Apple will replace it.
