    Restore your Ipod that already happened to me... You should restore to the newest firmware that is 4.2.1....

    Sounds to me like you have run out of charge cycles on your battery pack. have you used iTunes to reset your Touch, try that. If your battery pack is absolutely gone this may not work either because of the way the power is routed into the main board everything goes throught the battery. You then have two choices a new Touch, or send it to an outfit like Digiexpress and have them replace the battery. Digiexpress charges a flat 25 dollars plus parts for all of the work they do. A new battery for your Touch will cost about $20 dollars. This is where my 2G is going when it comes time to change out it's battery.
