peterc1224, the very first thing you want to do is to disassemble your iPod and clean everything with a high grade (90%+)isopropyl alcohol. Clean the dock connector as well with a soft brush. Check for corrosion and bend pins. You said you already changed the battery for a new one, so you can skip that. After it is cleaned reassemble and re-evaluate. It is of course possible that you have a short circuit on the board or a bad SMD component, so check for any missing charred or burned looking component. Hope this helps, good luck.
