My apple ipod 2gb will not charge the battery, tried different lead and computer ,still no charge. unit read battery very low on last attempt to charge. can I remove cover and replace battery. Peterreilly1@gmail.com.
Dear Sir, thank you for your reply re my battery problem. I found on the net a way to remove the back cover from my ipod using a plastic set square. I check the voltage on the battery with my volt meter and found it read 3.7v and 2.2v between the red/black black white. still the pod would not work .As I was looking at this ,my computer came up with a window showing the itunes site , I think the window asked me to choose it as the prefaired site etc I'm not sure on the precice proceedure that I followed,but the Ipod screen lit up and all seemed normal, The down side is that I lost all my music that I had loaded on to the Ipod, Is it possible to reactivate the lost info , or must I download from scratch, this is the second time this has happened. I would like to thank you for your interest and I hope to avail of your service another time. thank you. Peter.

First you need to verify that the lead and the computer are putting out power. You can do this by plugging in another item to the same lead, or you can try and charge the ipod from a docking station, or from another lead and a wall charger.
The internal batteries do go, and can be changed at your local mall phone dealer. Or you can try and do it yourself. I trust that the ipod does come on?
try getting a usb wall plug in and charging it that way you computer may not be able to supply enough power either that or you ipod is deffective and has a power supply issue if this is the case i recomend either getting a new one or getting it fixed

Have you tried installing the ipod program cd from your ipod on a separate file. Under a different username? It may be conflicting with the older model ipod protocols. If that dosen't work try going to apple.com for further assistance.
