    I tried all that before I posted my question. It doesn't even turn on for a split second with new battery? I hooked it up to the computer via the fire wire cable and it doesn't even acknowledge it? I don't know if its the logic board now (where the battery connects to it)? But it doesn't turn on now.

    I already have it apart. I'm trying to get diagnostic trouble shooting information to determine which part is defective ie (dock connector, logic board, LCD.) I don't think its the hard drive for sure. How do you determine what is defective besides buying a dock connector, logic board, or LCD screen and then replacing them one by one till it works?

Try first to reset the Ipod do this:
1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
2. Press and hold the Play/Pause and Menu buttons until the Apple/iPod logo appears, about 6 to 10 seconds. You may need to repeat this step for about 3 times...
If the above steps did not work, try connecting iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your computer.

Hope that helps.........

Problem with battery


Have to ask: you "got an iPod" where? If dealer/Apple store, return it. If not, it was sold because the battery is shot. Works on power; but not on battery.
See about replacement; but new "legit" device is my suggestion.

My ipod 4th generation keep freezing


Try the button combination : menu button and center button together for 5 sec. That will hard reset your iPod (make sure it's not on hold when you do that.) If that doesn't work, Take it to the Apple store first. Only if you're not under warranty, you should try a firmware restore using iTunes. If that doesn't help it's a hardware issue with your logic board. The logic board can be replaced by a tech savy user and the part is available on common auction websites. There are ipod nano 4G Repair guides that show you how to do the replacement step by step.

Ipod only shows outlet


You could try resetting the ipod. On my ipod photo, you have to turn the hold switch on then off, then hold down the Menu and select buttons for 10 sec's. It takes a few tries :>.

  • iPod nano (2nd generation)
  • iPod nano
  • iPod with color display (iPod photo)
  • iPod (Click Wheel)

  2. Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.
Tip: If you are having difficulty resetting your iPod, set it on a flat surface. Make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel, and not near the center.
If the above steps did not work, try connecting iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep.
