New battery not holding charge

My kid pitched my iPod video and the screen broke. I just dealt with the broken screen for the past year. I finally replaced it yesterday and decided to replace the battery as well since I would have the case open. My old battery wasn't holding a charge and so I guessed that it was just old. The new battery is now not holding a charge at all. Any guesses as to the problem? It plays fine except totally dies when unplugged.

It is definitely possible that the replacement battery is defective. Try returning the part and getting a replacement before writing the whole thing off.

If a replacement doesn't fix the problem, it's most like the logic board that must be replaced.

Well, the battery may be not connected (it can't charga/it can't gove energy/it isn't recognised), my sister's iPod showed the same problem, the one thing you have to do is to give it back, it's most probably a logic board problem, impossible to fix.
