Will a battery replacement revive my iPod?

My iPod has died, and doesn't want to turn on. The home button also broke a while ago, so I can't do a force start up. Will replacing the battery revive the iPod? Any help is appreciated!

Yes and No. Replacing the battery will revive the iPod, but it depends on where you go get it fixed. If you go to the apple store.. I believe the price is around $80. If you want to replace the battery yourself... it should come out to around $20 with the ifixit kit. I have already replaced my iPhone 4 battery using ifixit's kit and its working like new! Other then that... the home button is completely separate from the iPhone battery... either take that into a shop or have it replaced by apple. Those are your best two options...

By the way, please double check if the new iPod battery has about 2-5 cycles on it. Each cycle is around 1 full complete charge on the battery. A battery's cycle is the most important to finding a reliable working battery.

So changing the battery will revive it, but not if I have to do a force start up with the home button. Then I would have to replace both. Correct?
