i have a 30gb ipod classic it would not turn on and it keep reading battery very low please wait ...so to replaced the battery and it still saying the same thing my friend said that i need a new logic boad is he right?


> is he right?

Maybe. If the cable that connects to the iPod that you use to recharge the battery is broken, then _NO_ battery (old or new) can get recharged. Borrow a cable from a friend, or connect your iPod to your friend's cable, to see if changing the cable allows the battery to charge.

If that does not help, then your friend could be correct.

Note that some "big-box" stores, such a BEST BUY, will take your iPod as a "trade-in" on a new iPod. Put the old battery back in before you do the trade-in, and sell the new battery on eBay or CraigsList.

how do i charge my ipod


To charge the battery, choose one of the options below:
  • Connect the device to your computer (not your keyboard) using the included cable to charge the battery and sync. Your computer must be turned on and not in sleep or standby mode. If the device is connected to a computer that's not turned on or is in sleep or standby mode, the battery may drain.
  • Connect iPhone or iPod touch to a power outlet using the included cable and a USB power adapter to charge the battery.
An icon in the upper-right corner of the screen shows battery charging status. If you charge the battery while syncing or using iPhone or iPod touch, it might take longer to charge.
Note: If using a portable computer, make sure it is plugged into power and that the lid or display is open. If the lid is closed, the computer may go into standby, sleep, or hibernation mode and iPhone or iPod touch may not charge.
Important: If iPhone or iPod touch is very low on power, it may display one of the following images indicating that the device needs to charge for up to ten minutes before you can use it. If the device is extremely low on power, the display may be blank for up to two minutes before one of the low-battery images appears. If you don't see the white charging or plug icons, your iPhone or iPod touch may be connected with a FireWire cable. Disconnect the FireWire cable and connect the iPhone or iPod touch to a USB cable or dock.
that should be everything you need to know about charging an iPod Touch. If you require further assistance please feel free to followup with additional comments. If this solution solved the problem please feel free to rate it. Thanks and have a great day-Midwest-Tek
