Re: A1136 model battery problem
Hi! Don't open the ipod as you won't be able to figure out weather the battery is working or not. iPod's battery life is around 2yrs. Get it replaced if it is in warranty period or if you have extended warranty.
- If you need clarification, ask it in the comment box above.
- Better answers use proper spelling and grammar.

You will need to very carefully open the casing of your Ipod. It is relatively easy to do, but unless you are mechanically pretty handy, I would not attempt this delicate battery replacement yourself (... just ask a friend!).
Buy a suitable 'replacement battery kit' for ipod A1136 that should also come with the necessary case opening tool and detailed instruction from sources like Amazon or Ebay or your local Electronic component shop (There is a huge price variation for the kits! Also watch for the Current ratings - higher is better)
There are two 5th gen iPods, A1136 model is the older 2005 model, not the later 2006 model.
Here is Apples link: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1353#ipodfifth2 which will show the differences, but not by model number. The reason I know this model number is the first 5th gen 2005 is because I have one. Also older 2005 should have '2005' engraved on rear.
Connect the iPod and go to 'my computer'; -open the iPod by right clicking on the iPod icon; -on the toolbar menu click on 'Tools' -select folder options>view>& check the box that says "show hidden files & folders" -then click 'ok'
You will see a ghost folder called 'iPod control'. Open this folder to access the other folders & files contained within it. Delete the file called "Itunes_lock"
