    Have you tried to put it in DFU mode and then restore it?

    Any water damage or anything? Does the computer respond at all when it is plugged in?

    How do you know it's not charging? My iPod(at one point during tethered) charged with the screen black(as if it were off) for an hour, and then I was able to connect it to the computer and turn it back on.

    Try DFU mode

    Or hard resetting it (home+power 20 seconds)
