replaced battery, not recognised in itunes, no display
hi, I bought this as a project.. thought it would be easier than a nano I bought (thanks oldturkey for taking that off my hands!) The listing was "won't turn on"...new battery I thought. So replaced that, found old battery still had full charge... The ipod feels warm to touch, as if it is charging, however there is no display despite reset. Itunes doesn't detect it. Dock looks ok.. no bent pins/dirt etc. Where to go from here is the question. Is this a new logic board? or is there something else I could try. The ipod hadn't been opened that I could tell, no obvious water damage.
wellllllllll...never say die! I changed the battery(again)..it had exploded and had never turned on. Ordered another, turned on then slowly faded out...resoldered white wire and BOOM! we have ipod. Can't tell you how relieved I am..have had this in the "to do" pile for a while. Sometimes taking a break and coming back with a fresh mind works wonders.
