    Hi guys this is my first post. i have an interesting problem with my ipod.

    I have a 1G touch. The problems with it are as follows:

    The ipod was kind of working, the hold/top button does not seem to work.

    And the ipod does not hold its charge/any charge.

    I read a few posts that said to do a hard reset to try and fix it. So i did that and the reset ok, the button still didnt work. It was sitting on the screen with the USB cable and the itunes logo. Please note i had this plugged into a wall charger.

    I then plugged it into my pc with the USB cable to restore the firmware. The screen was blank. The PC didnt pick anything up.

    I plugged it back into the wall charger and still a blank screen.

    I cant do the reset thing where you hold down both buttons.

    Do you think if i replace the battery things will start working again?

    My ipod is out of warranty and has been opened. The screen was replaced awhile ago (not by me). When it was replaced i think the guy has damaged the battery.

    Any help would be great, thanks in advance.

    Try entering it in DFU mode again and then put your preferred firmware on there.

    I've a similar issue - Attempted a hard reset - didn't work.

    Check your warranty. Some 1G's still have a bit of warranty left.
