new battery seems to not work

30gb, model A1136

so, my ipod hasn't been holding a proper charge for a while, and being a few years old, i decided to just replace the battery.

new battery came today. i replaced it, plugged it in, won't turn on at all now. i've checked the cable connections three times, held menu + center button for a minute just to be sure, nothing. won't turn on, no hard drive noises, nothing.

i tested the integrity of the connections by reinstalling the old battery, and it turned on when plugged in.

what to be done? did i get the wrong battery? ( iPod Video 30 GB Replacement Battery this one) it is defective?

Answered! View the answer I have this problem too

Looks to be a DOA. You should return it for a replacement. Contact ifixit directly and state your issue i'm sure they will send you a new one out asap.

Good job on troubleshooting potential issues yourself!

Whenever doing a replacement with any apple device be sure to do a restore prior to using it to eliminate any possible software issues. I would do this once you get the new battery in.

Hope this helped!

how do you restore properly? all the apple website says is to *toggle the hold switch, and then hold the center+menu button*. which doesn't seem to really reset anything, it's just a hard boot up.

My friend Varsityanchor 307 is right. If the I-pod came on when you switch and put the old battery back in and pluged it into the wall useing a charger, then the new battery is no good.
