    So, my friend's iPod touch will not turn on or respond to any commands, and has a black screen all the time. Any ideas on how to fix it?

    Where he's at:
    • iPod won't turn on if either button is pressed
    • iPod will not reset via hold of Home/Sleep buttons
    • iPod is not detected in iTunes
    • iPod is not recognized by other media devices (Xbox, Dock, etc.)
    • iPod does not appear to charge when connected to a wall outlet adapter

    His system info:
    • iPod touch 32GB (second generation)
    • iOS 3.1.1 (not jailbroken)
    • iTunes 9.1
    • Windows XP SP2

    Anything you can suggest that might help would be fantastic. He's out of warranty and out of money, so cheaper fixes that work are always better!
