My 30gb ipod black has stopped working. it wont turn on at all. it is fully charged. when plugged in it makes a buzzing noise and the screen lights up but no icon or apple symbol. i have tried resetting it but to no avail. can anyone tell me if it is worth getting repaired. it is out of warranty. i have only started using it the last 6 months as i had no laptop before
Sounds dead to me. My best advise is to sell it on eBay, be honest about the problems because buyers can bite you in to **** if you aren't, take that money and buy a refurbished one direct from apple.com with the same warrenty that a new one has. You can find out more about the warrenty on apple.com/store and scroll all the way to the bottom left of the page. You can get anything from a shuffle to an itouch for alot less. Good luck

Check that the IPOD is fully charged. Plug it in to the charger and you should see the screen telling you how much charge it has. Check the slider on the top of the iPod. If it's a Classic iPod there is a switch to prevent accidental turning off or on. Slide the switch to the left and try again.
The Batteries in these units like all rechargeable batteries only have a certain number of times they can be charged and discharged before begining to fail. Your only option is to replace the battery with a new one. They are cheap to purchase off eBay and YouTube has Videos detailing how to change them.
You will need to plug it into the computer. After you plug it in make sure it recognizes it. If it doesnt then hate to tell you, but it crashed on you. If it does recognize it then your good. Leave it connected to the PC to charge. when it is fully charged, RESTORE IT. ITS A MUST. and then plug it back in and it will be fine
This same thing happened to me. I was playing fantastic contraption and my ipod screen just went black and wouldnt turn back on. When I plugged it in to a charger, it made that charging noise, but wouldnt turn on. SOLUTION: try holding in the sleep/wake(power) button, and the home button at the same time for about 15 seconds or until you see the white apple logo. That worked for me, hope you get it fixed.
