    Yesterday morning it was working normaly and then later on in the day it all of a sudden would not turn on. Is there a way to deal with the problem or is my iPod stuffed?

    First you need to put your iPod down

    Then you need to charge

    Mine wouldn't turn on, but it was still under extended warranty, so I was able to get a new referbished iPod form Best Buy.

    I hope you can get your problem solved.

    Did you leave it out anywhere it would have gotten either really hot, really cold, or wet?
    If the answer to any of the above is yes, thats most likely the problem.

    Friend of mine left his video iPod in his car overnight, very cold night, sucka wouldnt turn on for about 2 days. (2 days being exposed to higher than room temperature that is)

    You could always try emailing Apple, that might help?

    Oh, yeah, it might also have 0% battery left. Did it need an initial long charge period, and did you allow it to charge for the amount of time needed?

    I left it at the computer table for a couple of hours. It is unlikely it has 0% battery left because it was half full when I left it (iPod Nano battery lasts about 2 days). If it was empty would you have an idea as to how long it would take to charge?

    Have you tried plugging it into a computer to see if it will take a charge?

    That worked for mine. A few weeks ago it wouldn't switch on until I plugged it in. It's been fine ever since.

    that happened to me once, just one day wouldnt turn on

    I left it charging for 2 days straight
    turned on like a charm.

    Sometimes when there is zero battery, it wont even boot to apple or register it is being charged until it has enough juice to even boot the apple logo.
