Why does it not turn on? Original iPod click wheel 4th Gen monochrome

My very old iPod no longer powers up at all when plugged in to a socket or computer or a dock. I suspect the batteries have died. Also the click wheel no longer 'Clicks'. Only one side of the wheel clicks and so (when it was working) sets of random commands.

Should I attempt (and is it possible?) to fix both these things on my own through this website. I am VERY unsavvy with things like this! Is it easy enough?

Is this a good question?

vicki matich, yes it is "easy enough". Just follow the guides from here. Toughest part will be to remove the back, and even that is pretty straight forward.
