    Hello clareparker,

    The iPod only works on your charger because it is receiving a constant charge from the dock itself, which means it doesn't have to rely on its own battery power to continue to function and stay powered on. In other words, it sounds like your iPod's battery is show and will need to be placed either by Apple, a third party repair company, or you can even opt to do the repair yourself.
