There may be two reasons why the iPod will not charge.
1-the charging port may need to be replaced, look into where you hook up and see if there is any damage to the prongs within. There are very fine connections that lay on a hard plastic stub (charging port) if any pins are bent; out of place; or missing the connection would not be possible and will not get charged
2-the battery may need to be replaced. The battery sometimes dies and unable to recharge if you've allowed the battery to be exhausted completely before charging it.
<p>Apple iPod touch is a personal audio player with the ability
to store and play MP3 files, digital video and downloadable games and
applications. The unit is powered by a rechargeable battery. When charging the
battery for the first time, ensure that the battery is fully charged. From
there you can turn it on or removing the device from the charger, if desired,
regardless of battery level. <br />
<p>1. Enter the main connection for the iPod cable to the
socket at the bottom of the iPod touch. <br />
<p>2. Insert the small plug into a USB port on your computer.
Turn on the computer. Alternatively, an iPod charger, sold separately, you can
recharge your iPod touch with a socket. Connect the wall charger into an AC
outlet. Insert the plug on the door of the small wall charger. The battery icon
located in the upper right corner of the screen, the battery is charging. <br />
<p>3. Let the battery fully charged. When the battery icon to
indicate the device is fully charged, remove the iPod from the cable. <br />
<p>When the iPod touch battery dies, you cannot do anything
with the device. You will receive a warning on the screen of the iPod touch,
when 5 percent of the battery turns on the device. Connect the device to a
power source as soon as possible to load and prevent the battery goes dead.
When the battery dies, the unit will shut down and will be connected to a power
and charged before you can use <br />
<p>1. Press the iPod touch "Sleep / Wake" button,
located along the upper side of the machine. If your iPod does not care, this
is an indicator that the battery is dead. <br />
<p>2. Connect a charging cable to charge your iPod and connect
the USB cable to a power of high power. High-power USB ports directly on your
computer tower or, if the hardware usually found in the tower on the monitor,
the monitor itself. The iPod touch screen shows a big red battery icon on the
far left of the icon, indicating that the battery was empty. <br />
<p>3. Press the "Sleep / Wake" to see if the iPod is
connected. If so, check the battery life, looking at the battery icon in the
upper right corner of the screen. When the icon appears white, the battery is
full when the icon is half black, the battery is almost dead, and if the
battery is almost dead, you will receive a warning. If the iPod does not start,
the battery is completely dead. In this case, your iPod into electronics store
and have the battery replaced. <br />
If the iPod is showing the "Sad iPod face" icon, this means that the
hard drive inside the iPod (located on the logic/circuit board) has died/failed and needs to be replaced. If you plan on replacing this part, you may also need to purchase and solder a new battery to the iPod logic board if you were to do it yourself.
Hi! Try to reset your ipod by pressing menu and center button for 6 seconds. If still doesn't work then there might be a problem with your battery. If your ipod is under warranty then get it replaced else you can go for battery replacement. This link will prove helpful-
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.
What is your problem? The ipod doesn't die. Believe it or not but there's a battery inside of the ipod that if you want it to be repaired. Don't send it to the apple company, they'll charge you a **** load to replace the battery. You can find an ipod battery $10-$30 easy on the net&the proper instructions on the net you can replace the battery yourself!
