Hi. I've reciently been having issues with my ipod battery, within a certain amo;utn of time it goes down faster than normal. usually if I have it on the entire time without purposely making it go down, it would last like 2 days and if I just let it go it would go down in 1 day perhaps less and it was caused fromw ater going down on it. Even though now it works fine, I still have this issue and sometimes the screen is white at certain times.

But anyways I did what the support site said to sae battery time such as not using sound check, eq, having the backlight to 2 seconds, lower the brightness, etc. and that seems to help it but it still doesn't make it work better.

If I do something like get rid of a lot of vids/songs/podcasts, or let the battery run out then recharge it, would it work well again?

I would send it to apple but I really don't want to do that because they will overprice it and my dad got laid off and we don't want to waste our money too much. If you guys have any ideas please let me know! Thank you so much in advance.

Your best bet is to let it run down completely and then fully charge it before using, I don't think Videos/Songs/Podcasts will do anything for your battery life

Yeah,you should do that once a month..what that other person said..
something else, it's also possible it's a software thing,and you should probably restore it via iTunes,thought about it?
the other thing is you can charge it whenever you want,it's actually better for the battery to keep the ions always moving..but still do that thing about emptying the battery completely and charging it to full and then emptying it..once a month

hMm here is the problem though. When I do and charge it, and unplug it, it tells me it is still charging but it is unpluged and I can't get it out of that mode without setting it to hard disk mode. In addition, it won't plug into the computer again unless I do that.
