Take it to the Apple store first. Only if you're not under warranty you can try a firmware restore. If that doesn't help it's a hardware issue with your logic board. The logic board can be replaced by a tech savy user and the part is available on common auction websites. There areipod nano 4th gen Repair guides that show you how to do the replacement step by step.

Hi Hunter
You are using an Apple iPod? so all your music that you purchased from the iTunes store is still on your account in the iTunes store.
Use your computer to log into iTunes. Use your Apple ID & Password to look at your account and see your previous purchases.
In future always keep a copy of your music on your computer or USB Stick or External Hard Drive or CD or DVD.
Cheers

Only if you made a backup in iTunes. I think you still can make a backup, if you have iTunes on your PC or MAC
If you don't have the iPod "open" i don't think it will.
If you have a backup on iTunes, and you did reset the iPod, after you connect it to iTunes it will ask install as existing.

Have to ask: you "got an iPod" where? If dealer/Apple store, return it. If not, it was sold because the battery is shot. Works on power; but not on battery.
See about replacement; but new "legit" device is my suggestion.

Sometimes a iPod malfunction occurs that results in the Apple logo freezing on the screen of the iPod. When this happens, toggling the Hold switch or resetting the iPod typically resolves the problem. If following the manufacturer's instructions on resetting the device fails to get a response from your iPod, however, you must troubleshoot other potential solutions. In addition, taking the time to find the cause of the problem can help you prevent a recurrence of the issue.

Battery Allowing the battery to discharge completely may unlock an iPod stuck on the Apple logo. To drain the battery, leave the iPod with the Apple logo on the screen and place it in a drawer or in another safe place. Do not attempt to use the iPod until the battery drains and the screen goes black. This may take a day or more depending on the current level of battery charge. Once the battery drains, connect the iPod to your computer or to the wall outlet using an AC adapter and charge the battery completely before turning on the device. b> Restore If the iPod remains frozen on the Apple logo after draining and recharging the battery, you may need to restore the device to original factory settings. Unfortunately, this results in the loss of all data and media files stored on the iPod. Restoring the iPod, however, does not delete the files stored in the iTunes library, so you can still get your data back onto the iPod. Follow the specific instructions for your iPod model when restoring the device. Upgrade Software Problems with the version of software installed on your iPod may cause the device to freeze. Upgrading the software may resolve the problem because the updates released by Apple often include both bug fixes and software enhancements. In addition, installing the current release of the iTunes software also may resolve the freezing problem experienced by your iPod. File Corruption Often, a corrupt file can cause your iPod to fail. If you notice that the problem recurs after playing a specific song or video, then delete that file from your iPod. If the problem occurs again after synchronizing with iTunes, delete the file from your iTunes library. Then import the original file into iTunes again or re-download the file. Typically, if a corrupted file is behind the iPod freezing, a reset temporarily restores functionality until the problematic file plays again. b> App Overload Installing apps on your iPod touch can give you more than just fun or informative software. Running too many memory-intensive apps at one time can overwhelm the device and cause your iPod touch to freeze. A single problematic app may have the same effect. Limiting the number of apps running at one time or removing troublesome apps may resolve this problem.

Use your iPod's click wheel to scroll down to "Settings."


Press the center button located in the middle of the click wheel to select the settings menu.

Scroll down to "Playback" and press the center button to select it.


Scroll to "Volume Limit" and press the center button to select it.


Use the click wheel to scroll to the first number of the old combination and press the center button to select it.


Repeat this process for all four numbers of the old combination.


Use the click wheel to scroll to where you want the maximum volume to be set and press the center button.


Use the click wheel to scroll to "Lock" and press the center button.


Use the click wheel to enter the first number of the new combination when the message "Enter New Combination" appears on the screen repeat the process for the three remaining numbers.


Once the four numbers have been entered, your iPod's maximum volume will be set and your password will be changed.

hope this helps

HI there,

worst case scenario is that a circuit has broken inside. But your ipod will be under warrenty for a year from purchase.

Otherwise, leave the ipod to charge for a long time. Just leave it connected directly to the computer USB port despite not having any change in appearance. Also, don't connect it via a usb hub or through your keyboard. You will need to plug it into your computer directly.

You can also try entering DFU mode. Here is a great step by step guide to do that. http://iphonefreakz.com/beginners-guide/howto-dfu-mode/

Then restore the ipod and update the firmware. Make sure you have the latest version of itunes installed. By checking through software update.


I hope this helps,

Nathan.

Try
  1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
  2. Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.
