it wont turn on and when i try to charge it through speakers, two shrill beeps are emitted. i have tried resetting it but it doesnt respond. before this, there was a dark smudge across the screen and the ipod still wouldnt turn on. i've only had it for 1 year.
This happeneed to me the other day. Try connecting it to your computer. You may have to restart you computer or disconnect/reconnect your iPod a couple times. It took like 20 minutes of attempts for mine to work again. If this doesnt work I'd just bring it to the Apple store.
