iPod Classic will not boot after battery replacement
I've got an iPod Classic 7g thin 160GB that only holds a charge for an hour or so. I ordered a battery kit from ifixit, followed the directions exactly, and the iPod refuses to boot.
With the new battery installed, the iPod appears dead, no nothing. When I plug it in with the lock switch in the 'unlocked' position, the Apple logo faintly flashes for a nanosecond, goes dark, and repeats endlessly. Once I flip the switch to 'locked,' the screen goes blank.
I know I didn't damage anything because when I reinstall the stock battery and it boots and works fine. Could I have gotten a bad battery?
Is this a good question?
