IPod - Wont Turn on ???? HELP!

Hi.

Fairly new IPOD 30GB Photo. 1 month old.

Working fine last night. Went to turn it on this morning....nothing. Plug into USB into computer....nothing. Plug it into wall outlet with usb cable.....nothing. No screen comes up, nothing. I press all kinds of buttons.....nothing.

Any ideas? I'ts been plugged into wall for sometime now, but nothing. There is AC power at outlet, but IPod does not say it's charging.....nothing.

It might simply need reseting, here are the instructions from Apple:

To reset iPod mini, iPod mini (Second Generation), iPod photo, and iPod (Click Wheel)

Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)

Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 10 seconds.

You may need to repeat this step.

Sometimes the iPod needs a little kick. Plug it in, then do the manual reset. If it doesn't work, unplug it, plug it back it and try again. This will USUALLY fix this problem.

edit: by plugging in I'm referring to a power source.

Thanks.

Just tried that to.........nothing.

Anywho, it is going in for repair/replacement. No big deal. Thanks for all your help!

Don't mean to hijack your thread, but my 4G 20g iPod is working fine, but I can't see the screen! I've been listening to it all morning while washing my car and when I pulled it out of my pocket coming in to the house there was no screen. I can play music (though it's a guessing game) and I hear the click-wheel working fine, but dead screen.

So my question is, will a reset make the screen settings reset?

Sometimes if the battery is really flat, it won't work until it has been plugged into a computer (not the wall) to charge. Generally for this, Firewire is more reliable than USB, so if all else fails then maybe get your hands on a Firewire cable you can use.

Hopefully it'll all get fixed in the shop anyway though.
