New Battery: Why is the"Very low battery sign"still on after charging?
Hi I just purchased a new battery and front along with a click wheel for my ipod video from Ifixit. I have followed the instructions but once done I get the following 3 screens:
1:Please Wait. Very Low Battery
2:Black screen with apple emblem
I have tried to reseat the battery cable more then 4 times with the same result each time.
I have had the ipod charging all day, so over 8 hours.
Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
I had the exact same issues. I disassembled my ipod, rechecked all the connections and still ended up with nothing I ended up replacing the motherboard. That did the trick. Apparently there are some issues with the charging circuit on these boards. It is also possible that it won't charge because it doesn't have enough juice to start charging so it just continously resets itself. You need to have it hooked up to your computer in 'disk mode'.
1. Take your iPod and plug it in to your USB port.
2. Hold down the select [center button] and the play button.
Use a USB port that comes directly of the motherboard. Do not use a frontport or a hub when you connect your iPod. It might have to update your library but you shouldn't lose all your music.
I have the exactly same problem :(
Hard drive is not spinning and my computer is not detecting the iPod.
I've already replaced so many things, don't tell me my motherboard is broken :(
Everything was fine with old battery (I threw it away, unfortunately).
I also replaced the hard drive but reinstalling the old one did not help.
