Only works when plugged into wall charger

I replaced the battery with a new ifixit battery. Didnt fix. The battery showes fully charged and ipod works only when pluged into factory wall charger. When pluged into front of computer a dim "please wait battery very low" is lightly visable. When not plugged in nothing shows at all...

ANSWERS:

labergesteve, make sure that the battery cable is properly inserted in the little connector and that the clip is down to hold it into the connector. Let it charge a good while. I usually use a firewire connection to give the battery an extra boost since if it is to discharged, the USB and sometimes even a wall charger will not provide enough amperage to give it the initial kick. Of course you could also have a bad battery and there is also the possibility that the charging circuit on your ipod logic board has failed, which usually leads to a logic board replacement. Good luck and I hope you get it working.
