Getting hot when connected to charger and wont work
I pod was working fine while on charge in my van ,all of a sudden it died ,when i handled it to try and sort it, it was very warm /hot to the right of the control wheel .The screen shows just the apple logo ,with no backlight and you can hear the hard drive kick in and then shuts straight down .Had a look inside and all seems ok ,so i disconected the battery from the clip on the board and placed the charger back into the socket and the area to the right of the wheel still got warm .Any ideas would be truly welcome i am lost without my pod .
Re: getting hot when connected to charger and wont work
Well if you just got it cause i am not good with i pods but if you did just get it not to long ago you could go to the store and they will type in the serial number in and see if your warranty is still good or what ever it is and they might just give you a new one

Take your battery in for testing after charging it. Then, to avoid pulling the Alternator for nothing, drive to a local Autozone, Advance, or Oeilys and ask them to check your charging system on the Van.
Consider taking an extra battery if you have one to fit, so you can get back home after the test. Run the van with the charger connected until you get good heat, then reduce the blower fan speed to minimum. Then disconnect charger.
If you are still stuck on the road, jumpstart the van until it is warm, using the jump car to charge the battery so you can go home and try again. Just leave the battery jumpers connected to the struggling van battery a few minutes so the old battery has a chance to charge.
You stated you have a 12V Cordless Drill with PA14 batteries. The PA14 battery is 14.4V. The battery may fit in your tool and might work for a while but the motor isn't made for that battery. The way to check the batteries is to try them in another charger, any 14.4V to 18V pod/stick charger will work. The way to check the charger is to try another battery, any good 7.2v to 14.4V pod/stick battery will work. Unless the charger got wet or extremely hot the problem is usually the battery. Just check to make your tool and battery voltage is compatable.
I think I had the same problem. You do not write if your device were connected to the PC. My device was, and I finally got the suspicision, that it died because the battery was so low, that it crashed when the PC polled it as an usb unit. So, I connected the unit directly to the charger unit that came with the unit, and now it works. So, try to connect directly to your charger, when your battery is totally drained.
try reseting it with holding down the menu and center button. Your warrenty will have been voided due to the liquid damage though so if you cant get it working with the reset your gunna need a new one.
Hi I think your battery may be going bad or you need to purchase a wall charger to fully charge your battery. Charging your iPod on your computer works fine for a while, but as the battery gets older, it needs more charging and often it doesn't get enough from the computer. Try a wall charger first. Charge it all the way up until it stops charging. If it still shows a low battery you need to have a new battery. There are a lot of places that can do it. Hope that helps.
