omg! thnk you so much! I was freaking out when my ipod wasnt working bc all I do is listen to music. thkn u so much. holding the buttons together for approximately 30 sec worked! I owe u one :))
Thank you so much I thought that my itouch would never turn on, but I never would have tried what you showed use. Once again thank you I will always try that solution, and hopefully never have a problem with my itouch again, and if I do I will always check this wbsite.

Going on holiday tomorrow and sons new ipod nano had no display, carried out your instructions and is working fine. Thanks a million!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Well, if your iPod will not turn on, there are only a few solutions.
-Plug it in and let it charge.
-Give a reboot (hold home button and sleep) till logo appears.
-If you jailbroke it, maybe it is in tethered loop recovery mode.
-Battery may be done, replace.
-If it shows white screen, hold down upper right corner of iPod.
These are some common solution to iPod problems.

If you tried installing BlackRa1n on it and you cut it off and it wont come back on try hooking it up to your computer and reinstalling blackRa1n on it, or if you havent installed blackra1n just open itunes and restore it if it will connect!!!, hope this helps!!!
my ipod wont charge I been charging it for 2 days and the only time it comes on is when its on the charger but as soon as I take it of it doesnt work what do I do
tell apple and they will check it out.
