Can "Charging, Please Wait..." be an indicator of a bad logical board
I own the original/6th Gen A1238 iPod classic with black metal top (just for the sake of description even that photo is included). At some point out the blue started displaying this message and after unsuccessful attempts to recharge it either by keeping it connected to my laptops or wall power charger I decided to obtain a replacement batter kit from iFix it.
Due to unforeseen circumstances I didn't get a chance to go about replacement for few months since I have other iPod's and similar devices for music, videos and photos, but when I got to it, it was an easy replacement experience, regardless of the fact that it took me some time to open up this sucker.
Even after replacing the battery, and attempting various suggested troubleshooting steps, I am still stuck on the "Charing, Please Wait..." screen with drained battery graphic and exclamation yellow triangle. Am starting to suspect logical board, but I don't want to flat out purchase replacement, end up being short around $100 and still be stuck with the same issue after I replace that part as well. I am not expert in this area and thus am posting this with hope someone might have been dealign with same or similar issue or simply has the experience in iPod repair.
On a nutshell (for those lazy to read the whole story)
1. "Original"/6th Gen
2. Stuck in "Charing, Pelase Wait..."
3. Battery successfully replaced with iFixit part
4. Still stuck in "Charing, Please Wait..." mode
5. Attempted various tshooting steps, no love
6. Is it possible this is logic board issue vs battery ?
7. Any other ideas how to overcome this problem ?
Is this a good question?
