    Hey everyone, new here. Hi.

    So, I bought a refurbished iTouch, and it got here thursday afternoon. I had been keeping the batteries charged and all, but saturday night, it runs out. Nothing weird, iPod just ran out of batts. Fine. Plug it in, my computer won't recognize it. at all. and nothing happens. nothing. screen doesn't light up or anything. So i grab it, take it to my wall adapter thing that charges it up. nothing. the only way you can make it work is to hold the off button up on top, and even then it just shows an apple logo for a few seconds. I don't want my 300 dollars wasted. Gonna call apple tomorrow, but if you guys have some answers in the meantime, please post. :(

    Thanks, KaTGJam

    How long did you leave it plugged in for? Sometimes, when the ipod runs out of battery, it takes a while for the battery to charge to the point where the device can turn back on. And your comuter doesn't recognize the ipod until it is "on."

    Also, make sure to use the wallcharger that came with the ipod, I believe the newer touches doesn't work with older ipod wallchargers.

    When you say wall charger, I assume that you mean the USB cord. I used an old one from my nano when I tried it, and even though I let it charge for a good 12 hours, it still didn't work. So maybe it was the cord. Thanks for the reply, also, this is the first time the thing had ran completely out of batteries, so that could be relevant. I'll try the USB that came with the actual iPod tonight, let it go overnight, and see what happens. Thanks again

    Alright, sorry to double post and also to bump this back up, but it charged all night, 9 hours, with the correct cable. Still nothing. My only remaining idea is to put it into my brother's iHome, and it that doesn't work, call Apple and get a new one.

    If you are leaving it connected to USB overnight for charging and the computer is turned off you may find you are actually draining the battery. Try charging it with the computer turned on or a wall charger.

    It was with a wall charger, both nights.
