If it doesn't respond when you plug it to a charger its most likely motherboard problem.

here is the apple warranty and repair service assistant
https://selfsolve.apple.com/GetWarranty.do

also here is the ifixipodsfast.com ipod parts and repair service
http://store.ifixipodsfast.com/ - this may be cheaper if your out of warranty.

Did you try another usb cable? It probably is a problem with a faulty cable. You may also try to uninstall/reinstall iTunes. Restart the computer and then restore the iPod.

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


does it work on the charger? if not, then contact apple or your dealer for more assistance or repairs.

If it works on the charger, plays music and so on, your battery is probably dead and you need a new one.
