    well hello...

    how do you start a new thread???

    Because i have a major dilemma...

    i was playing pokemon emerald my 1st gen 16gb itouch yesterday evening, and when my battery became low, i put in on the charger and left for a few hours. i returned only to find that the ipod was completely off and would not take ANY action, whether it be turning on, rebooting, going in to DFU mode, or plugging into the computer to sync. I know that its not the charger that won't work because i can feel that the ipod is warmer at the base, near the usb port, and also i have charged my ipod nano from there, too. and i can't SSH into it...

    So, just a recap:

    1. my ipod will not respond after full charge
    2. the charger is POSITIVELY WORKING, and IS CHARGING THE IPOD
    3. the ipod turned off BY ITSELF WHILE IT WAS ON THE CHARGER
    4. i cannot go into DFU mode or SSH into it
    5. itunes does not detect it, and therefore, there is no way to restore it (any ideas on how to get itunes to detect it?)

    WHAT CAN I DO???? My best bet right now is that it has broken, and if it is, could you please tell me

    WHY???

    If there is ANY way that i can get it working properly again, i NEED TO KNOW!!!!

    and on a lower note,

    How do you start a new thread?

    ANY help will be greatly appreciated

    Just a theory

    might be the dock connection plug on the bottom of the ipod that's behind the detection problem and charging problem, is it showing the battery indicator going up? If not then the problem of it turning off may be just lack of power. I wouldn't know about the SSH thing as I'm not jailbroken. So yeah, checkthe pins in the dock connection plug, as that sounds a likely culprit for most of your problems (can't say about SSH).
    I've just registered and it feels good to help, so the pleasures all mine

    how could i do that? most of the pins look alright, but i cant be so sure because of the minimal size of the slot/dock. all i can tell is that there's a little dust :/

    The pins wil most likely be bent so you can see the sides more than usual, other than that I'd say it's a recognision error in the iPod software, in which case I'd say send it to apple, but your jailbroken and can't DFU restore. In a phrase, I'd say your screwed. Sorry

    Just do a force reboot. I have to do that sometimes after I let it charge all night on my iHome.

    Very fine nosed pliers and the dexterity of a gibbon, I'd do a forced reboot first, far less invacive

    Hold down both sleep and home buttons for 10 seconds then release home and keep holding power for another 9-11 I'd say till it boots.
