Replaced battery, still won't turn on or sync with iTunes.
OK, I bought this 8GB touch off eBay. Seller said it was his nephew's and "just stopped working". I asked him to see if he will urge his nephew to be more specific, and also to ask him (under no penalty of punishment) if it got any water in it. I will update if I receive any pertinent info on that.
Also let me say that this is the first Ipod I have ever even owned, so I am only familiar with the workings of them, through having done a little reading up on them. So please bear with me.
I replaced the battery with the help of the repair guide on here,...being careful to not bridge the contacts on the motherboard (I used a modded piece of a bamboo skewer as a spudger). I was hopeful that it was gonna work cause when I checked the old battery with my multimeter it was completely dead. However, after installing the new one, and even after charging it, the unit doesn't appear to power on (no signs of life on the LCD or green LED on motherboard) and doesn't show up in iTunes.
Where do I go from here?
Also, I was pondering this too,....if I end up having to get another motherboard, will the 16 or 32GB 2nd gen touch boards work as a swap in, or do I have to stay with an 8GB board?
Thanks in advance,
Is this a good question?
