    So pretty much I traded my cousin for his iPod Touch 2g and it died while we were out and about. I came home to charge it and when I plugged it into the wall outlet it wouldn't charge and the 'plug into charger' icons popped up which means the charger wasn't charging it. I tried 2 different outlets, a extension cord, and 2 USB ports on my computer and none of them would charge it. I left it on the charger overnight connected to the wall outlet hoping that it would charge but it was still dead when I tried to turn it on the next morning. I went to school and tried a friends charger and different outlets but it still wouldn't charge or turn on. I've tried doing the recovery mode numerous times but nothing would pop up or turn on. iTunes won't even recognize it when I plug it into the computer or try the recovery mode which is holding the power and home button for 10sec, then releasing the power button and holding the home button for another 10sec. I have no clue what to do next.. please help!

    It may have crashed, just leave it for a couple of days until the battery drains totally flat then try plugging it in

    Are there absolutely NO signs of life? Not even a backlight or anything?

    Yeah, no signs of life at all. It just won't turn on and the picture that comes up that tells you that you need to plug it into a charger doesn't pop up either.

    i had that problem with my iPod touch 2g mc model and i put it into DFU mode then opened greenpoison (never used before) and tried to start it that way... it worked but i didnt want to be jail broken so i just restored after it had started to work properly again.
    This is only a last resort thing to get it to work again it might or might not work and i doNOT encourage you to use it but this is all up to you and i am not responsible for any damage done to your device.

    try finding methods of hard reseting your ipod, i know its a pain, but you may have to use some tools like redsnow or greenpoison to force reboot your ipod.

    I had a 1st gen that I thought died. Plugged it in for a few hours nothing. Blew in the whole there the 30 pin connector went and plugged it in again for a few hours and it worked. Lint and dust get in those connectors.
