This problem is due to a bad battery. All rechargeable battery have a charging limit of upto 1000-3000 charges, after that it will loose its ability to get charged, so you will have to replace the battery.

I charge the MP3 player and it still shows "low battery" message.

There is a trick to charging the battery in these small mp3 players. It won't charge if it is turned on, and it won't charges if it's turned off. Here's what to do...
1. plug the player into your USB port. or wall charger
2. switch the player on using the mechanical switch (on the side)
3. turn it off by either holding down the play button, or selecting "System" from the menu
4. The screen will go black and the battery will begin charging.
That is if the battery is still chargeable after all this time. The battery may well require replacing.

Ipod Nano 5th Gen. 3 months old and died--won't restore either.

Hi there,

A possible problem with the battery. Battery life depends on how you frequently used the devised and how you handled the proper cycle to charged and drained the battery.

Battery charging should complete it's charging hours and you have to properly fully drained the battery at least once a week, this will make the battery life go longer.

Initially try to plug and connect the Ipod into your computer and see to it that it was turning ON, or it was giving any sign that it was responding when you connect it to the computer.

Is there any incidents happen that you got a problem on charging the unit, or any like incidents like power outage on the area or a short circuit on the device charger?

Let me know here again for further instruction and clarification.

It won't turn on. The battery charge light is on and have been charged for more than 8 hours. however, the light doesn't blink at all no matter how long you've been charging it. When charger is removed,...

Either the charging circuit is faulty, or the battery has drained and the safety circuit has disabled it. If you have a warranty send it back, if not, take it apart and try charging the battery from an external 5v source. Do not leave it this way for more than a half hour as it will overheat and could explode.

After it's gotten a bit of a charge (if you have a voltmeter check that it's over 3.7 volts) put it back in the player and it should start up. Now try charging it the regular way. If it doesn't charge further then the charge circuit is damaged. Try a cell phone repair center, they should be able to help.
