    Try the suggestions in Apple's doc -> iPod touch: Hardware troubleshooting

    Battery does not appear to charge

    Important: iPod touch cannot be charged with a FireWire power adapter or FireWire-based car charger.

    1. Verify that the power source being used is working properly.
    2. If connecting to a computer's USB port, verify it is a high-powered USB 2.0 port. Note: The USB ports on most keyboards don't provide enough power, so if you're connecting iPod touch to a keyboard, make sure it has a high-powered USB 2.0 port.
    3. Verify the computer is turned on and not in sleep or standby mode. If iPod touch is connected to a computer that's not turned on or is in sleep or standby mode, the iPod touch battery may drain.
    4. Try another USB port.
    5. Try charging from a USB charger if available.
    6. If that does not help, try another USB cable if available.
    7. Learn more about charging the battery.


    If that doesn't do it, the iPod touch may need to be sent in for service.
