Ok, so I know what everyone is going to say. Restore. I've tried that. Hundreds of times. I also can't get it in recovery mode either. So, as far as I can tell, that's out of the question. My Ipod, when I try to turn it on, will go to the Apple boot up logo, and then turn off after about 10 seconds. It started doing this after the battery died one day. Now, the computer will not recognize it, no other chargers will charge it. Is it completely broken, maybe a battery issue? Help?

    Yep, appears to be a bad battery as the cause of this. Take it to the Apple Store for confirmation and for possible repair.

    I have the same problem on a 2nd gen ipod touch... One day it was completely lagging, so i shut it woen by pressing the home and lock button. since then it just starts to boot up and stops after 10-15 seconds. should i bring it to an apple store?
    Thank you.
    edit: i saw this on another post, it helped

    Try recovery and DFU mode.

    Recovery mode: Shut down the iPod, hold the home button, and plug it in. It should boot up to a screen that has a cord and an iTunes logo on it (it will look like it's booting normally). If it doesn't work and boots up normally (goes to the iPod is Disabled screen), try DFU mode:

    DFU mode: Make sure the iPod is plugged into the computer. Shut down the iPod. When it shuts off, hold the home and power buttons at the same time. It should look like it's booting normally, but when it shuts off again, RELEASE the power button and CONTINUE to hold the home button. After a few more seconds, your computer should install driver software for it and it should appear in iTunes as an "iPod in recovery mode".

    Once you get to one of the "recovery" modes, hit Restore.

    Cheers Kalingkazak - your recovery suggestion worked a treat.

    "Recovery mode: Shut down the iPod, hold the home button, and plug it in. It should boot up to a screen that has a cord and an iTunes logo on it..."

    My touch is 1st generation for anyone wondering.
