I have a iPod 6th gen touch screen that was given to me, it has one problem though... It plugs in just fine and acts like it wants to charge but it sits there on the charging screen for hours and doesn't boot up i plug it into my computer and it doesn't even log it in for iTunes any help? im going to keep it on the charger but its been sitting there for 3-4 hours straight and doesn't boot up any help will be needed thanks!

Yes Multiple So far, Im sure it isn't a battery issue? it shows the charging screen it just wont boot
If you've tried using different chargers and waiting for it to charge then maybe you need to take it to get looked at.

My brother thought his phone was broken because of this but it turned out to be the charger. Lots of things could cause this like the charging port itself.
