Mijn probleem

iPod was not charging and would power on only with a one charger I had bought long time. Looks like the logic-board had some problem due to the power/current surge from this charger.

Mijn oplossing

I followed the repair-guide from ifixit and this helped a lot. After replacing the logic board the ipod didn't boot proprty(exclamation point in triangle on ipod classic).

I got a tip from this website/link and it worked!!! :)

"Open up the iPod, and place a folded-in-half business card (or equivalent substitute) between the outer metal (back)casing and the hard drive itself. This puts a small amount of pressure on the hard drive, and has permanently fixed every iPod I've tried it on."

In essence, the Hard Drive pins weren't meeting up with their connectors. I tried out the business card solution and IT WORKED!!!!

Better to include the tip in the repair-guide
