    Hello all,

    Important Story:

    One day, after using my ipod for over 2 years I charged it to full battery. I listened to some music as always, then all of the sudden it shuts off! I reset it and it just kept turning on and off, on and off. Finally I got it to stop turning on a off, but instead it said "Please wait, very low battery". After charging the battery again, to full power, it worked fine, then the same thing happened...over and over and over.

    I have an ipod video black 5g.

    Can anyone help me out?

    Thanks,
    GC

    you need a new battery: after that long, the electrons just zip away.

    Your batter is dead. If you want to replace it check out www.ifixit.com or take it to apple store. Apple will charge $60(not sure)...and you can do it for half the price from ifixit.

    If I were you I'd use this ipod as an external hard disk or sell it on ebay and buy a new ipod touch:D

    just get an old portable cassette player and a tape deck with giant speakers. They WORK MUCH BETTER!!!! :) and they're cheap and easily recordable.

    I've gotten a few of these with this same problem, leaving it on the charger doesn't help since it can't get to the part in the boot process where it can charge. Get a new battery and that should be able to fix it. I have seen batteries for $10 on eBay.
