Carefully inspect the doc connector on the iPod. Get a magnifying glass and look for dirt, slivers of metal, mung, and other debris stuck in there.
Also look for bent pins. Also dried sweat on the pins can do this.
If you don't see anything, try to blow out the connector anyway or give it a wipe with a corner of a handkerchief or paper towel slightly moistened with alcohol.
Sometimes you can get shorts between pins which fool the iPod into thinking it is plugged into a power source.
