iPod No power after repair

So I'm fixing my girlfriend's sister's iPod. I have done these many times before, just a cracked screen.

So after I replaced it everything went fine. She told me a few days later that the home button has stopped working. So I just took off the new touch screen to take a look. when I go to power it on and it seems to unresponsive.

I tried 3 cords, all usb ports on two computers. Nothing.

Did I short out the logic board?

Any help would be great.

Is this a good question?

check your battery has output/charge with a multimeter. The experts on ipods will know better but if the home button isn't working it may be the charging port is dead/not connected, hence not charging/syncing.


Can I check it with out lifting the lcd?


Oh wait never mind I lifted the lcd.


Ok, So im getting a reading from the battery and a higher one when i plug in the charge cable.


Try reconnecting LCD an doing a reset. This may power the LCD back on. If it is recognised in iTunes this may be an LCD problem.
