    Leave it connected for at least 30 minutes and make sure your computer is not going into sleep mode.

    • Connect iPod to power for at least ten minutes to ensure that the battery has enough charge to allow iPod to turn on.
    • If iPod does not turn on after ten minutes, try resetting the device while it is still connected to power. Reset the iPod by holding down the Sleep/Wake button and the Volume Down button for at least eight seconds or until you see the Apple logo appear.
    • If the Apple logo appears on the display, connect iPod to a computer and verify that it appears in iTunes and can play music. If iPod appears in iTunes and can play music, no further troubleshooting is needed.
    • If the screen remains dark and will not turn on, then your iPod may need service.
