Try a reset. Press centre button and menu. Hold for a few seconds to see if apple comes on screen.

If that doesn't work plug it into a computer via a USB lead to recharge it. Docks and PSU type chargers may not work if it is dead flat.


I am talking from my own experience. I had a dead Nano and it would not charge from a PSU or dock, but did from a computer. Possibly it was because it was not an Apple psu. I would advise anyone with a dead Nano to try recharging from all sources.

sbdfhs, you have it reversed. A computer USB output is no less than 4.75 V and no more than 5.25 V and 500mA. It will NOT charge a battery that is below 2.7V You WILL have to use at least an AC charger since the spces on those are Input 100-240V - 0.15A (0.15A) 50-60hz

Output 5V --- 1A So your answer is very misleading. May be an edit would be nice:-)
