Hi, please reopen your iPod and check that the battery cable is seated properly and the brown lever is pushed down all the way.

if a battery is completely unloaded for a couple of month it might happen that the battery died. Just to make sure its the battery, try to load the iPod with the usb cable connected to a running pc or mac. If that doesn't work, its the battery that died.

You can find a new one in the parts store, and how to change it, in the repair section
