Same Problem!

My Ipod 32G has just done the same thing. The screen remains black, when I plug it into my computer or wall charger it doesn't respond, and I can't do a reset of any kind! I have tried everything on the internet, on the iTunes help pages, but nothing works. this is ridiculous

If your computer is your only means to which to charge your ipod, you are going to be in it for the long haul. The battery has been allowed to drain too low for itunes to recognize it. Get a wall charger and allow it to charge untouched for at least an hour.

I would let the battery drain for a few days and try to charge it again (if the computer picks up the device). If the computer doesn't even pick up its signals, I would call customer service.

If you didn't do anything to cause it, you should be able to get it fixed or get a replacement from where you got it.
This is of course if you can't get it to work.

Press the awake/sleep button on top of the iPod touch and the home circle button by the bottom of the iPod touch at the same time and hold it until it comes to life again.

Red face My Ipod don't want to turn on either!

I have the exact same problem as you! It first started with connecting problems, so I bought a new usb cable, but it wouldn't work either! Then my screen turned completely black, and it don't want to charge anywhere! not on any computer, not with a wall charger... -.-
