iPod screen BLANK...won't turn on

My iPod wouldn't turn off the other day and now it won't turn on. When I tried to turn it on today, it showed the apple and then NOTHING. And nothing happens when I plug it into iTunes either. It doesn't say it's charging...just a blank screen. It doesn't grind or anything. Am I out of luck?
Thanks...

Have you left it in to charge for an extended period? I had the same thing happen a while back when the battery got totally drained because it wouldn't turn off. Plugged it in and kept unplugging it because it wasn't charging. finally plugged it into the wall and forgot it. 30 minutes later it was charging, no problem since. Maybe that is the case with yours.

Or, you could have fried everything and lost all your music... Bad Joss.

Well that sucks. What kind is it? Do you have Apple Care? If so, you may want to try our methods and then contact Apple if it doesn't work.
