iPod only powers on from power adapter, not computer. Battery?
I am experiencing problems with my iPod touch 4G.
-When plugged into power adapter it turns on and seems to function correctly.
-When I unplug it, it instantly dies and will not turn on (though it shows full charge).
-I have attempted connecting it to the computer via the same cord through USB and it will not boot up and thus not recognize.
Is this a problem with the logic board or the battery? Do you think replacing the battery would rectify this problem?
I am an experienced user, have repaired macs and iPods and this one has me puzzled. Please let me know any input and I will update as I continue, thanks!
I have tried resetting while its powered from adapter and unplugging, same problem.
I would like to restore it, but cannot do so as it is locked by a passcode I don't know and can't connect it to the computer for power. Any suggestions are appreciated.
