How to isolate source of charging problem in iPod Classic
I have and IPOD Classic that will not charge. When measuring the charging amps to the device, I notice erratic readings. For a while it would show 0.08 A, then for a little while it would jump to 0.44 A then reduce to 0.32 A for a while. Then drop off to 0.08 A. Charging volts is steady between 5.15 and 5.17 V. The IPOD will continue to show the "low battery" screen continuously. I have tried multiple batteries with no change in outcome. I have switched cables as well. My conclusion thus far is that the problem is internal to the IPOD - the charge port, the power chip, the battery connector or something else.
I was hoping someone might have a step-by-step on how to isolate the issue.
