    so i left my ipod in my car for a couple hours...temp was 35-40 degrees. at first it wouldnt turn on at all, but after i hooked it up to a computer it eventually came on and started charging. but then i unplugged it and found out the touchscreen wasnt working -.- i tried warming it up like suggested in another thread, and eventually it started working like normal. but now a couple days later the touchscreen has stopped working again. its been in my house the whole time, temp 69 degrees. anyone have advice other than "call apple" :/


    EDIT (2-21-10): Just for future reference of people reading this post, my iPod randomly worked one day after trying to turn it on again. This was several months after it had stopped working. So don't throw it away if this happens to you!
