What you need to do is make sure it is off and charged.
Plug the ipod into your pc or mac.
Open iTunes
Hold the home and power buttons together for 5 seconds
Without releasing the home button release the power button and continue holding the home button for 20 seconds and it will boot into DFU mode.
Once it is in DFU mode iTunes will recognize the ipod/iphone and restore it to the factory settings which will remove your jailbreak but your ipod/iphone will work again.

Try going through this doc:

The "5 Rs" of iPod Troubleshooting: http://www.apple.com/support/ipod/five_rs/

It sounds like you're not getting a charge though. Might want to try plugging it in to a different PC to see if it is even recognized.
