mahesh, the very first thing I would do is to replace the battery. if your iPod comes on while plugged into the AC adapter, but not on the USB port, is most likely caused by a battery that is to discharged, or at the end of its lifecycle. Here is the guide iPod Touch 3rd Generation Battery Replacement and the battery is available right here iPod touch (3rd Gen) Replacement Battery and many other places. After that, re-evaluate and see what you have. Hope this helps, good luck.
