    I have an ipod touch 1G and im trying to fix it. When I try to turn it on, the red battery shows up, and stays there. I've plugged it in to recharge for over 2 hours and everything is the same. Also, i tried resetting it, and also plugging it into a computer, and itunes doesn't recognize it.

    Any ideas? Should I wait longer?

    Hold the power and home button until the iPod turns off. Then turn it back on. (You can just keep holding to reset it).

    New Battery

    Maybe You will need a new battery.

    I'll Explain:

    i just got a new ipod yay
    playing whole day with it,
    oh no it only has 30% of battery life anymore i have to charg it because i want to show it to my friends.

    lots of people do this well the problem is that a battery has like a memory
    if you always load it when it is 10% and not at 0% then the battery will think that 10% is 0 percent and this will continue until the battery thinks 5% is 100%.
    the ipod will show the red battery at 5% i think
    so if you charge it,the battery will think it it is fully charged at 5% and it won't accept any power anymore.
    so it can't get higher then 5% and the software checks the battery at startup and if it's 5% or lower it will show the red battery but you can't charge it because the battery thinks it is full and it won't accept any power.

    so go to an apple store and ask for an battery replacement.

    Well if you've tried powering off and that didn't work, and you've tried restoring and that didn't work, I have one other idea. When this happened to my iPod, I let the battery run out so it basically dies. Then once you can't turn it on or anything because there is no battery juice left, plug it in to your charger. It worked for me, hopefully it works for you.
