Try to reset it by doing this:

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

Good Luck!
I have a dead ipod that won't turn back on. i tried holding down both buttons several times.. even with it plugged in to charge.. still no Apple logo. Do you think that that battery needs to be replaced and can i bring it to an apple store for that?

Hello Bill, if you did this instructions above and it didn't work, yes it can be a battery problem, Bring it to apple store to see if they can solved the issue.
