My iPod does not turn on and it is not recognized by my laptop in iTunes... What can I do?

My iPod does not turn on and it is not recognized by my laptop in iTunes... What can I do?
Model iPod 2 Touch, 8G, It stoped working less than a month after it was purchased but I never sent it back for repairs or warranty to Apple.. Is there still a way to repair it on my own. It just simply does not turn on or charge and it is not recognized by iTunes when I plug it in to my MacBook Pro.
Please advise...

Try:
- iOS: Not responding or does not turn on
- Also try DFU mode after try recovery mode

- If not successful and you can't fully turn the iOS device fully off, let the battery fully drain. After charging for an least an hour try the above again.
- Try on another computer                 
- If still not successful that usually indicates a hardware problem and an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store is in order. The appointment is free.

  • My ipod froze then turned off and now will not turn back on

    my ipod was fully charged and was working perfectly.
    i locked it and when i tried to unlock it my touch screen wouldnt work.
    i tried reseting it by pressing the home button and the power button.
    it started to reboot then froze on the apple logo screen.
    after waiting for twenty minutes or so i tried reseting it again while it was still on the apple logo screen,
    then it turned off and now will not turn back on.
    i have tried plugging it into my computer to see if it would by some miracle turn back on but i have been unsuccessful
    my ipod is my life, if anyone can help me fix it i would greatly appriciate it!!!!!!!!

    My iPhone blacked out, and will not turn on. I did not update to the new software! So what is my Apple iPhone 5s problem?
    A lot of issues with iPhones lately, maybe apple has an issue developing and implementing their inovations.

    Hi InUtero, 
    Welcome to the Apple Support Communities!
    I can understand your frustration if your iPhone is not turning on as expected. The first thing I would suggest in this situation is a reset. Please use the following article for instructions on how to reset your iPhone. Please be sure to let me know if you need further assistance. 
    Turn your iOS device off and on (restart) and reset
    Have a great day, 
    Joe

  • Macbook air's fan not turning off and it will not sleep when the lid is closed?

    I downloaded OS X Mavericks yesterday.The fan will not turn off. It runs whenever i turn on the computer. The computer does  not turn off when i close the lid, and the fan still runs. There is also no battery icon anymore on my home screen. Is this just a bug with Mavericks? My computer is a mid 2012 edition.

  • IPod won't turn on and isn't being recognized by my PC

    Hi all, hopefully someone can point me in the right direction. My iPod has worked fine. I purchased one of those iHome alarm clock players for it about 4 weeks ago. I haven't used the iPod on it's own in a while.
    This morning, the alarm went off just fine. I went to plug the iPod into my PC and nothing. I couldn't get it to reset or turn on either. The computer says it doesn't recognize the player???
    I think it maybe the battery, but I thought the iHome would charge it. Anyone?????

    I was hoping someone would answer your question. I have 2 ipod nanos. I recently purchased an alarm clock/charger for my ipod. I love it, however now my computer will not recognize my ipod. It does recognize my daughter's ipod which is exactly the same as mine. I am using Vista. WHy WHy Why???

  • My nano stopped working, it will not turn on and it got super hot when I was charging it, what could it be?

    Help, my nano was woking fine yesterday while I was working out. When I got home to charge it the screen was black and after a while it was really super hot. Please tell me it's not broken. I just got it in August as a birthday gift.

    My daughter put a password on her ipod and has now forgotten the password and disabled her ipod, we no longer have the computer that it was last synced to please help

    You'll need to connect the device to the new iTunes library in recovery mode using the instructions in this Apple support document.  From there, restore it to factory settings.

  • HT1267 what if your iphone 4 does not turn on and you dont have any way to get the Serial number what do u do

    what if your iphone 4 does not turn on and u have no way to get the serial number what do u do

    If you eject the SIM card tray the serial number is also there.  It's tiny, but there.
    When my iPhone won't turn on I first charge it with a known good cable for a few hours.  If nothing after that I begin a warranty lookup for repair.
