Use this article from Apple to do a reset and some other basic troubleshooting: http://www.apple.com/support/ipod/five_rs/classic/

If the resetting does not bring it back to life, chances are you have a dead battery, I have had this happen a few times.

If you are somewhat handy, and comfortable taking things apart and putting them back together, chances are you could replace the battery. The hardest part is getting the case apart.

I have previously used ebay and things to buy a "battery replacement kit"...Be sure to get the right one for your style iPod, but once you get the case open, the battery is not that difficult to replace, and doing it yourself is much cheaper than having Apple do it for you.

80GB video ipod is not turning on.instead the apple symbol blinks


Connect the ipod to your computer and let it sit for about fifteen minutes. Then it should show up in your computer and under itunes. Usually, if your ipod dies completely, when you try to charge it using a wall or car charger, it will do that, just flashing the apple logo and going back off. Leaving it plugged up to the computer will allow the battery to charge just enough so that it can sync with itunes. While it is plugged into the computer and charging, it should say something like, battery very low, charging. It should work after letting it sit plugged up to the computer.

80gb classic wont turn on


iPod reset is usually center and menu held for 5 seconds. Doing this should put it back into a normal behavior state.

Ipod gen 5.5 battery


Hey,
The batteries in the iPods are only meant to last for 18months.
After this period there is a good chance that your battery will start to lose it charge and eventually not charge at all. You very may well need to replace the battery in it if it is over 18 months old.
Hope this helps and good luck!
