    My old 5G video ipod is being really strange
    when I plug i into a power outlet it starts up and says the battery is fully charged
    when i unplug it, it shuts down and doesn't start back up unless i plug it into an outlet
    when i try to plug it into my macbook nothing happens, it just stays shut down

    IS there anything I can do to fix this?

    Ive tried toggling the hold button and holding down the menu and select button

    Please help...i love this old ipod

    You could try restoring the software in iTunes. I don't know if this will help, but it's worth a shot if you want to keep your ipod. If you live near an Apple Store you could try asking someone there. I find the employees to be extremely helpful.
