    Default iPod Touch 4G Not Turning On or Connecting to iTunes

    I have no idea why, but my iPod Touch will not turn on. When I press the Home button, it will show the low power screen (but only when connected to a USB cable). Holding Home does nothing. Holding Home and whatever the button on the top is results in a brief white flash, then it goes completely black. It won't show up in iTunes, and I've tried everything I can find on Apple's Support pages. I've tried plugging the iPod in both before and after starting up iTunes, I've tried holding the Home button down before plugging it into the USB cable, and I've tried changing where the USB cable is plugged into the computer (despite it being the same port I've used for the past four months, with no real problems).

    I'm not sure what, if anything, else I can do, but any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Perhaps it died. Leave it on the charger for several hours and let it revive itself.

    Been doing that. No luck so far. I figure without a more proactive solution, it's better than nothing.

    Did you expose it to water?
    If you did let it dry out in the sun with it like open.
    Or under a heat lamp with its insides exposed.

    If not then all I can suggest is leaving it on the charger until it naturally jump starts itself.

    Don't think I got it wet. If I did, it had to have happened three days before this started, with me using it and charging it just fine in between.

    Restoring it in iTunes might do something.

    Actually got it figured out a while back. Think it had something to do with running too many apps.

    And I wouldn't have been able to restore it in iTunes, anyway. As I said, at that point, iTunes wouldn't even detect it.
