Looks like you've got a bad logic board then, it's destroyed. Unfortunately they are neither practical nor cost-effective enough to change, so you'd be best off buying a new iPod.

Thanks so much. I'll give it a decent burial.

Well you can still sell it, that's a good option, you can fetch a decent price on ebay for the dead unit. A lot of people buy iPods with bad logic boards for the other parts.

I got this on my 5th gen 30GB when I was checking a bad 80GB hard drive.

When I put the good 30 GB back in it gave me the support.apple/support message so I unhooked the battery and hard drive for 5 min. re assembled it and it started working.

Make sure you have a well charged battery ! at least 35%
