Jacqueline Campbell that will depend on the exact model of your iPod. It could be the connector being dirty, corroded or having bad/bend pins but it could also be your charger as well as the battery. Let us know what kind of charger you are using.

Start by replacing the battery. Just watch the battery connector, it has a tendency of easily braking off the board. Use this guide iPod Classic Battery Replacement for that. This iPod does not open easily but it is doable.
