iPod won't turn on or won't charge

It was still in the package when I bought it. I can plug it into my computer, fine. The orange lighting blinks like it's charging, and itunes syncs with it fine, and itunes says theirs mp3s on it loaded fine. I have the latest version on it. I left it plugged in to charge overnight. I have tried restoring it.

But when I unplug it from my computer and flip the switch to shuffle or continuous, nothing happens. No audio and the battery indicator light doesn't even turn on.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Thanks for this. I was afraid that may be the case. I don't have access or knowledge on soldering. I waisted $79 :(



I’m sorry to hear that

If you ordered it on eBay you could try and return it and get your money back

Or if you wanted I could show you step by step how to desolder the battery and put a new one in

It’s not too hard and soldering irons aren’t too expensive

Entirely up to you, no pressure just do what you feel is best:-)
