will not charge past the red bar


I bought my i pod touch from a friend for 70 dollars and it was in acceptable condition and the only thing wrong with it was the screen was cracked and the digitalizer was in need of replacement but it still worked but with the cracked screen it needed a new screen. So my dad and i went on amazon and bought the kit which includes the tools for replacing the touch screen and it also came with the new digitalizer and new touch screen and a screen protector. so i put the digitalizer and screen on the i pod and its just showing a pic of the battery with the lowest amount of charge ,a red bar. what should i do im lost.

Have you tried to charge it on a AC charger? Does it get recognized by iTunes or your computer?

Sorry to hear that. But, what you missed in your iPod purchase is that it also had Dock Connector defective which is not allowing the unit to receive charge from the external source.

Even saying so, please make sure if the unit gets charged by another USB/Data cable before we decide such. Sometimes, only the USB/Data cable is defective. If known good USB/Data cable still doesn't charge your unit, the Dock Connector is obviously defective and hence requires replacement.

If this helped you, please accept the answer and rate it. Thanks.

where can you get a dock connector for the ipod touch 4th generation. i have the same symptoms as above and have tried using another charger but it still only displays sthe battery with the lowest (red) charge and will not go any further. when i plug the usb cable into my computer, it doesnt even recognize that something has been plugged into it.
