How to fix some mysterious problems.

This has been bothering me for days. My iPod one day decided it didn't want to charge when the battery was about 42%. So I kept playing with it and it eventually died. So I plug it into my wall charger overnight and went to sleep. In the morning the red empty battery icon was still there and my ipod was really cold. So I changed cable and wall block and nothing. I tried charging with the computer and nothing. I decided to restore it and still nothing. I've restored it twice and left it charging overnight. The only way I got it too turn on once was by doing a tethered boot. I even tried letting it charge in dfu mode and nothing. ANY HELP IS APPRECIATED!!!

You might have to take it to an Apple Store to get it fixed... (I dunno of any fix)

Do you think they'll fix it if I don't have warranty or anything?

Sounds like a hardware failure, either the battery is dead, or the dock connector.

That's what I thought, maybe it was a hardware failure but the thing is the dock connector works since I can jailbreak and restore with it.

that's a good point, probably the battery then.

keep in mind on the dock con it "can" charge and not restore, and sometime they can fail to charge but restore okay..

I was just saying. Thanks I'm going to keep trying. If it doesn't work then oh well.

Just revisiting my unanswered questions: Here was the fix for me, I left it charging for two days with a Philips Cable and charging block and it turned back on.
