Question about Apple iPod Audio Players & Recorders
When listening to my music, although the battery is charged, it keeps turning off ,what is wrong with it.
IPod keeps turning off Plug your iPod in overnight to make sure it has charge. If after a full night of charging it has a low battery, there is probably something wrong with your charger cable. Replace the charger cable, especially if yours is old or has ever gotten significantly dirty. Reset your iPod. This basic reset does not remove any content from your iPod. Apple suggests this soft reset as the first fix for any software problems or if the screen freezes. Eject your iPod from your computer first. For an iPod with a click wheel, toggle the hold switch on and off several times, then hold down "Menu" and the center button at the same time until the Apple logo shows up on the screen. For touchscreen iPods, hold down the "Sleep" button at the top right until the Apple logo shows on the screen. Perform a factory restore on your iPod if the previous steps do not fix the problem. Plug it into your computer and open iTunes. Click on your iPod, then click "Restore." This wipes all content from your iPod and re-installs the operating system.
b> iPod Keeps Cutting Off b> Your iPod may cut off during a song or video, or during an application. Different causes lead to different types of cutting off just the sound may disappear, or you may suddenly experience cutting to a different screen. For example, if your iPod cuts off during a song, you may have merely hit the "Pause" button. With a blank white screen, you're encountering a software problem. Whatever the reason, follow some simple troubleshooting steps before contacting Apple's customer service.
Headphones Check that your headphones are connected correctly if the sound cuts out suddenly. If the 3.5-mm headphone jack comes out even a little bit, it can make the sound cut out in one or both headphones. Check for debris in the headphone jack itself, which can prevent a solid contact between the headphones and the iPod. b> Other Sound Issues b> Make sure the volume is up high enough. Also, especially if the iPod is in your pocket, make sure you haven't bumped the pause or sleep button. To ensure that audio plays constantly, engage the lock on your iPod. The music will always stop when you pull out the headphones, and once the headphones are back in, you have to push "Play" again. Cutting to White Screen b> A sudden white screen may appear when a generic software malfunction occurs, one in which t you don't get an error message. You must reset the iPod by turning it off, then on again. If this happens several times and you are using the same application each time, that app may be faulty. Try re-installing or re downloading the app. b> Cutting to Black Screen b> An iPod that cuts out to a black screen and won't turn back on is usually out of power. Usually you'll see a low battery warning, but if you're not looking at your iPod when the warning flashes, you might miss it. Once you connect your iPod to a functional power outlet, you can turn it on immediately, but it's best to wait a few minutes when the battery is very low. This gives the iPod a chance to regain power so it can function normally when you plug it in. Hope it helps.

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.

Sounds like your battery circuit is not working properly. Since you have opened it before, open it again and check to see that the little plug where you put the battery tab in is pushed down to make a good connection. Sometimes the plug connector is in the up position and needs to be gently put back down to have good contact.
You could have also messed up the battery connector when you disconnected the first battery to change it. Sometimes that happens if too much force is used. I use a pair of tweazers to just gently pull the battery tab out of its plug. I also use the tweazers to gently push it back in without moving the connector up and down.
You could also have a bad battery. Have you tried putting the old battery back in to see if that works.
Hope that helps.

I had the same problem. Went to the Apple store and the technician said that the IPOD battery ran down to low (battery level showed red) and the USB port on the computer was not strong enough to recharge it. He used a rechargeable adapter that pluged directly into the wall (adapter cost about $30) and recharged it enough for me to take it home and recharge it on my computer.He said to never let the battery level drop below 5% unless you are going to recharge it using the adapter that pluged into the wall. I bought an IPOD rechargeable travel kit from Target for $20 and used it to recharge my IPOD. My IPOD works fine now. The Technician also said at some point the battery will need to be replaced (in a year or two depends). Will cost about $59 to replace it (don't quote me on the timeframe or price of replacement, this may have been just for my IPOD but thought this would be useful info for someone.
