I went through the normal plug-in for my Ipod, and nothing. I found your site and bought a replacement battery. Installation was as easy as following the directions and looking at the photos. I didn't unplug the touch screen as advised, but had no problem bringing my Ipod back to life. It was like Christmas when the tone accompanied my plug-in. You guys Rock.
Difficult, but doable.
Don't think you can't. I fixed mine, you can fix yors with a friend like ifixit.
