Ive had my ipod since christmas so it only been about a week, and it has been working pperfectlly. I was on it last night and it kept popping up that I only had 20 % battery left I jut ignored it but when it popped up the 4th time it turned off. I assumed he battery was dead so I went upstairs and put it on my alarm clock which is also a ipod touch charger. FOr some reason it wouldnt turn on at all, so I just left it there while I slept thinking when I woke up this morning it would be charged.. but it didnt and it still wont turn on or charge I even tried it on my sisters charger!!! Help me please :)

Follow this instructions:

1 - Simultaneously press the top button + home (central) button.
2 - Keep both buttons until the Apple appears.
3 - Then release only the top button but still hold the home button pressed.
4 - The iPod goes into recovery mode and then you can restore it via iTunes

Frappes ta tête contre une cruche. Si tu obtiens un son creux, n'en déduis pas que c'est forcément la cruche qui est vide!

Hello Nirvusrek,

Try this:

1-Quit iTunes.

2-Locate the iPodUpdaterExt.dll file in Windows Explorer. This is typically found at the following location:
C:\Program Files\iTunes

3-In Windows Vista, on the Start menu, click All Programs, click Accessories and click Run Alternately, in Windows XP and 2000, from the Start menu, click Run.

4-Type cmd in the Open field and click OK.

5-At the command prompt, type regsvr32 followed by a space.

6-Type the path to the dll, as shown in the example below:
regsvr32 "c:\Program Files\iTunes\iPodUpdaterExt.dll"

7-Press Enter and a dialog should appear stating:
DllRegisterServer in c:\Program Files\iTunes\iPodUpdaterExt.dll succeeded.

8-Click OK and close the Command window.

9-Open iTunes and try to restore or update the iPod.

Good Luck!

Humm I can imagine your hapiness, it is a real pleasure for me to help you ;-)
I just took mine out of the box and it has not turned on once been on charger for over an hour now and tried the fix, but it did not work for me sadly. Any Ideas?
I just recently had this problem (5 seconds ago to be exact). Try pressing the top button and the circle button at the same time for about 10seconds, while its on the charger. That's what I did & it worked for me.

-Hope it helps!
Yes! This worked perfectly for me! Thankyou!!
