There's a number of things you could try if you havent already.
My first recommendation is not to use cheap power cords from eBay etc because I found that although some cheap third-party cords would sync properley and transfer data they did not charge. So I got genuine Apple charging cords, no problem even though it it was $20.
Try charging from a USB port on just about any device, computer or other USB charger and see if it has charged within 9 hours.
I also found that earlier Genuine Apple chargers that were supplied with 3gen iPhones had very low amperage (like 0.5W) which were ok for the iTouch and iPhones but certainly very slow to charge devices like the iPads. So if you can find a charger of 1Watt output or more then go for the higher amp out like 2W or above. Its not the amps you have to worry about, its the Voltage. The device will only draw the amperage it needs.
Or buy a new charger
- Try another cable. Some 5G iPods were shipped with Lightning cable that were either initially defective or failed after short use.
- Try another charging source
- Inspect the dock connector on the iPod for bent or missing contacts, foreign material, corroded contacts, broken, missing or cracked plastic.
- Make an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store.
Thanks for the responses. Still no luck. I have tried another charging source, I have tried USB, can't get Itunes to recognize the ipod. I had seen the solution to go to the genius bar, but that is about a 2 hour trip for me from where I live, so I was looking for something that might give me a lead. Thanks again
