I have an 18 month old iPod Video 80GB that is completely dead- it was fine in the morning and when I took it out of my bag later I get no response at all. The hard drive is not whirring, the screen is blank, there is no response to a reset and it is not recognised when I plug it into my computer, including plugging in to different cables and different computers.

I'm no techie slouch, so I can repair it, but am having trouble diagnosing the problem part. Some say battery (which I doubt, as I didn't notice any reduction in play time beforehand), some say the hard drive is faulty and some say replace the logic board. Or maybe something else has been known to cause a problem?

Any ideas about what could be causing the problem would be welcomed, as I don't know which part to try replacing first!

has your iPod been dropped recently?? i have a 160Gb which also did that. try plugging it in the pc wait for about 3mins then for 6 seconds press simultaneously "menu" and center button. after 6 seconds when the apple logo appears your iPod will do a restart.
