Maybe this will help? A good ol’ hard reset.

I have tried a hard reset but it doesn’t work. The ipod won’t charge and a reset won’t work without any power

Restart the device. If this doesn’t work take it in.

Take it back.

This happened to me with my iPod Touch.. I’d had it for 6 months or so and all of a sudden, it wouldn’t show in iTunes, be recognized as an iPod by the computer (kept coming up as a camera), nor would it charge.

I did research on it, tried resets and all that.. what worked for me was completely removing iTunes and Quicktime and all iTunes/QT related apps and processes, and reinstalling. Be sure you save your iTunes folder before you do this, so you can hopefully save all your downloads, playlists, ratings, etc.

Good luck!

I have had the cords go bad, could you try a new cord?

same happens to me but my PC recognizes it and it charges. Although my laptop was in the shop for 2 weeks getting repaired so I haven’t been able to charge my iPod until tonight.
