Question about Apple iPod classic MP3 Player
I am trying to charge my IPOD classic battery, I have the thunderlight symbol on the top right hand corner but can't see the battery icon charing and showing progress...can you please help??
I think on the iPod classic it doesn't change the battery logo other than showing the little lightning bolt when you plug it into the charger. However if it doesn't hold a charge after leaving it connected for a while, If hard resetting and restoring fails and If you're out of warranty there are third party ipod repair services that will replace the logic board or battery depending on what's wrong. There are also ipod repair tutorials that show you how to replace the logic board yourself, if you're comfortable with taking things apart, parts are usually on auction websites.

Have you already reset the iPod? If not I would try that first. It may be that your battery is shot though. It's not a relatively expensive repair though.
To reset the iPod Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.) 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 that does not start the iPod to charging you can go to (www.rapidrepair.com) and view free repair guides that show you how to replace the battery as well as how much it will cost to replace. Good luck. Hopefully the reset resolves your issue and you will not need a new battery. Let me know how it turns out

If an iPod appears not to turn on, check the hold switch on the device.
If this switch is activated while the device is off, it will not power on again until the hold switch is turned off.
If that is determined not to be the problem, the battery's charge should be checked.
When the battery is no longer holding a charge, the device will not power on, but will show a battery icon on the screen for a few seconds.
If you see this icon while trying to boot up the iPod, just connect it to the USB cable and allow the battery to charge, which can sometimes take up to 30 minutes before the iPod becomes operable again.
If no battery icon appears when trying to turn on the device, try resetting the iPod.
Once reset, the device should turn on, but if it does not, the battery may need to be drained first (by leaving the iPod disconnected from power for up to 24 hours), and the reset procedure tried again.
hope this helps
