How I almost brought my iPod photo back to life, Pt. 4.
15 minuten - 1 uur
I've had an iPod photo since 2004. I eventually began experiencing battery and hard drive problems. Because Apple offers warranties on their repairs, I was able to keep it going until around 2008 by sending it back every six months. Eventually, it died after the protection ended, and I've kept it in a Zip-Loc until now. I've decided to start with the battery, although I do have a hard drive coming from another source. (Don't tell iFixit!)
I performed the transplant deftly and expertly, being motivated by the sounds of Tom Araya yelling at me whilst Dave Lombardo assaulted me with his brutal double bass footwork. Unfortunately, the patient seems to be have rejected the organ. This is where I need help.
The battery does not seem to be charging. I've kept it plugged in to the wall for hours and hours, and the screen never gets past the image of the wall charger being plugged in to the wall. I have checked to make sure that the battery is connected, and it definitely is. I've tried resetting it because why not? Any ideas as to what could be the problem? Why would it not be charging? Would the fact that it was also in the middle of an update cause a problem? I don't see how that would interfere with something as simple as recharging a battery, but what do I know?
I have not yet achieved enlightenment.
