Answer to "My iPod died suddenly after 6 years of 'signal service', dead battery?"Cody, your take might've been helpful if only the iPod showed some life. Everything is plain dead, no show, nada! I've opened the Pod, removed and checked the battery which shows a full 4.10 Volts across the +, - terminals. I don't know what the white lead out controls. I ran a 6 volt 0.5 A torch globe for several minutes across the red/black leads, the battery still reads 'high' i.e; 4.10V. Does this suggest a logic issue, a mechanical, or switch malfunction? The thing worked o.k. right up to when I decided to recharge the battery which was then showing almost zero life after my near 3 hour bike ride with constant use. It was never dropped. Yep! I am stumped, and though I'd rush to buy a new pod, I hate giving up without a fight, besides, I love this "old faithful", so, I'll just keep digging, in the hope that someone has a spot on clue.
