You haven't said what the symptoms are, but if the current issue is that it will not power on, then if the battery has run down fully you will need to leave the iPod on charge for at least thirty minutes before you see any signs of life at all from it. It may take longer before it will actually do anything.

Hi thanks for your reply, the symptoms are that the screen shows iTunes logo with the vertical power cable, suggesting I should connect it to iTunes on a pc, but this has been done many times and it won’t reset / restore etc. I feel it has been corrupted in some way but though I could get it back to working order but so far with no success.

Regards

There's a crucial difference between Reset and Restore. It sounds as though your iPod needs a Restore and that a simple Reset will not work, so you need to ensure that you have tried the Restore function, not just a reset.. Check this article from Apple; If your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch won't turn on or is frozen - Apple Support which should help. Read past the bits about iPhone X, 8 and 7 but read and refer to anything that mentions the iPod Touch.


In particular, check the section headed If your device turns on but gets stuck during start up which deals with an iPod stuck at the point yours is.


Before it directs you back here, there is another section headed If you need more help. Somehow it should be possible to get your iPod going again.
