Why no power unless charging?

Hi. Can anyone confirm the issue. My Ipod Nano 6th Gen only powers on when connected to the charger. As soon as the charger is unplugged the screen turns off and is unresponsive until the charger is reconnected. My suspicion is a dead battery, but could do with a second opinion.

Many thanks

Yes sounds like a dead battery, they are usually not that expensive so I would recommend ordering one. Be careful when taking the screen off, it is easy to chip/crack

I agree with Reece. Replacing the battery should surely fix your issue. When removing the device from the charger causes it to power off instantly, it is a very strong indication of a failing battery. This applies to many different devices too.


Excellent. Confirmed my suspicions. Thanks for your help
