    It wont power on at all?
    You made sure its charged?
    Try holding the home and power button down for 15+ seconds to see if it will start up.

    Try restoring it to a custom 4.3.3 ipsw instead of the official one so you dont lose the unlock.

    You probably had it on 6.15.00 and didn't know. A lot of people who pay for unlocks end up with this and are not told not to restore/update. Not saying this is necessarily the case, but it may be.

    If you know what Sn0wbreeze (Windows) or pwnagetool (Mac) are, use either of those to create a custom firmware to restore to with iTunes. You can get IPSW files HERE: http://www.felixbruns.de/iPod/firmware/
