    Try charging it just in case. Maybe it wasn't really charging before, and it might be dead.

    the batter might be fried. i remember i was charging my first gen ipdo touch one night on my ihome and the screen kept going on and off but then it stopped. i fell asleep and woke upa few hours later and checked the time on it and it was hot to the touch and so was the ihome. for the last three months i had it after that a whole bunch of pixels startted goign dead and i had like a few lines of dead pixels. just saying if your ipod gets hot cuz of battery overheat sh*t will happen to it.
