Connected to power, doesn't charge or turn on but shows charge screen
I have an iPod Touch 2nd Generation that was given to me for free. I suspect it has water damage but the indicator sticker has been removed.
After having a look inside, I can see no damage to the logic board, no marks, discolouration or anything.
The iPod will not power on, however when I connect it to a wall charger or computer (I have used various chargers, computers, wires etc) the screen powers on and shows the red battery with a lightning bolt under it.
I have left the iPod to charge overnight but it shows the same screen and still will not power on.
I can press the volume buttons or sleep/wake buttons whilst plugged in and the same screen is shown. Pressing the hold button does nothing.
I suspect the battery may not be taking any charge. However should the iPod still power on and be able to be used if connected to a computer or power point?
So my battery arrived today, i installed it fine. The iPod doesn't power on by itself but when plugged into the wall it actually boots rather than showing the lighting bolt screen. When connected to iTunes it was stuck in a loop, showing the Apple logo then going off.
Its now it restore mode, saying connect to itunes. Im going to a restore (if it works) then see what happens.
Any suggestions as to why it wont power on (even with a new battery), can this be software?
