Why wont it power on after sitting open for awhile?

Okay, so I've seen this happen many times, and I know it has happened to other people too. And I'm sick and tired of it and ready to resolve the problem. I have observed that perfectly function iPod that have sat out taken apart (such as sat without a screen), sometimes they just dont power on or show any signs of power! Even if they worked perfectly before they sat open! I'm ready to resolve this issue, and I wanted to know if anyone had any input on this situation and any ways that could fix it. I dont really know. I've had iPods that do this for sitting open for only 3 days to 3 months! Please help! Thanks!

This is very interesting.

I had my ipod opened over night (because I started replacing my battery late at night, so wanted to continue the following day.) And now It won't turn on...

In my case my ipod will turn on then after a couple of tracks the sickness will follow it will turn off then after a couple of minutes turn on again and so on and so forth..

Its fully charged and all and it hapens several times while listening to music. Then when it will turn off the moment it will turn on sumting is not really on the setting of the tracks u set. Its crazy and i have been dealing with this problem for so long already. Sometimes i like to smashed it!

Here's a tutorial with pics that everyone has been requesting. I've used this method over a dozen times successfully. Good Luck!!

There are 3 small battery terminals (shown below). You only want to touch the one to the far right (circled below). Avoid touching the other 2 terminals!!
