I'd start with a restore under iTunes and see what it does. Since you do have new batteries I think if the issue is not resolved with a restore, check to make sure that all your connections are properly seated. After that a new logic board may be in order :( The battery life for your 5th gen is partially addressed with the iPod Battery Test Instructions available here hope this helps to get you started in the right direction, good luck.
