Stuck on "charging, please wait"

Stuck on "charging, please wait"

So i have an either 80 or 60 gig ipod {there's paint on the back so i cant see or remember} and at first it was stuck on the Big red X, someone recommended that i let it discharge all the way cuz i already tried hitting it so the needle bounces back or something, but that didn't work. So i let it die, plugged it into my computer and now it's stuck on the charging please wait screen.. i let it charge over night, that didnt work, i tried reseting it but all the happens is it turns of and says connect to power, then shuts off again. What do i do?? and why do none of these quick answers work for me but they seem to work for everyone else!?!?!?

"Question - I am experiencing the exact same issue (see attached photo)

. I replaced the battery and am still getting the same message. Is it possible that logic board has gone bad or is this an indicators of a wrong battery ? Note that I obtained the battery from this portal. Thank you."

I had this exact same problem and I figured out all by myself how to “force” power into the battery, haha! Instead of leaving it charging forever, plug it in and out and repeat that a few times. This should force enough juice into the battery to allow it to stat holding a charge again.

I finally solved this issue after soooo many google searches. When I reinstalled the battery - the ribbon was on backwards than what appears on most videos. Check the batter ribbon placement. I thought the same “ooo Its an old battery” so I waited for a replacement. Replacement battery had the same issue of “Charging, Please Wait” It wasn’t until I flipped the ribbon before my fixed ipod Gen 6 started to work again (I am using iFlash Quad)
