First, connect your iPod Touch to your PC/Mac via the USB cable. Then try holding the Home
buttons at the same time for about 20 seconds (or until the Apple logo
appears). When the Apple logo
appears, released the two buttons and allow it to boot.
If you never see the Apple logo
or the Apple logo
stays for more than five minutes, you will need to try a DFU Restore.
This will wipe your iPod Touch completely, but it is the only sure way to get your iPod Touch working again (unless there is hardware damage).
With your iPod Touch plugged in to your PC/Mac, hold the Home
until your iPod Touch powers down, continue holding Home
for a full 4 seconds.

Release the Power
while still holding the Home
key until iTunes tells you the iPod Touch is in recovery (your iPod Touch screen will be black, but it is on) and then doing the restore to latest firmware.
After the restore, when prompted, do not
restore from backup. You want to setup a new iPod Touch
. From there, resync your contacts, calendars, music, and apps.
If you have completed this and still cannot get the device powered on
, you have verified that the issue is a hardware defect. There is no other option
but to have the device serviced, repaired, and/or replaced.
You will need to take it to your nearest Apple Store Genius Bar
) to get it repaired/replaced.
