New battery not charging
I have a 10 gig, 1st generation iPod (yes, from 2002!) that won't charge. I bought and installed a new Newer Tech battery. When I plug it in, it powers up and the battery icon shows it charging. After a few minutes the screen goes blank. When it is disconnected from power it is dead. I have restored from iTunes and hard reset with no success. (BTW, when I hard reset while connected to power (press and hold menu and play) the screen goes blank, then momentarily flashes the dead battery icon, then the apple logo and powers up.)
Any ideas? Could the "new" battery be old and unable to charge?
Thanks for your help!
I have a thick, I think 1st generation, classic wheel iPod. It was a gift so other than knowing the HD is 20G and it is thick, I do not have any other info on the specifics of my iPod.
Anyway, I have used it a lot and the last time I plugged it into my computer, iTunes wanted me to do a factory restore. I did than and now the device wants to be plugged into a 110 outlet. I have done that but the icon of it being plugged into the outlet still remains on the screen.
