Replaced Hard Drive, Now not booting
I have an old iPod Video 5th Gen, which I got off a friend.
The hard drive needed replacing, as when I got it, I kept getting the sad apple face.
I got a hard drive, and installed it according to instructions on the net.
Now when I try and boot the iPod, nothing happens. It hasn't been used for a good few months, so I'm thinking the battery is completely dead, so at the moment it's plugged into a wall charger and I'm going to leave it there for a couple of hours.
In the meantime I wanted to find out if its something more sinister than just dead battery.
When I hold down MENU and WHEEL button for around 8 seconds, the iPod tries to boot, but instead of showing the Apple logo, it just goes back to the battery charge screen.
It doesn't boot unless plugged into a wall charger or computer USB. I was at one point getting the message to connect to a computer, but that was ONLY through a wall charge, and no USB in a computer was getting to that stage.
Any ideas? I've checked all connections multiple times and everything seems ok.
Thanks guys, appreciate. Going to fix her up and give it to my dad as a present.
Is this a good question?
