iPod is dead , but when I connect to power, it reboots every 2 seconds
I have a 120gb iPod classic and I’ve known the battery hasn’t been great for a long time now. About 8 months ago, I was only able to listen to it connected to power and once disconnected it would die in 5-10 minutes.
Now I can’t even get the iPod to power on to the menu regardless of a power source. It’s rebooting extremely quickly (the Apple screen is flashing every 2 seconds nearly) and from all the troubleshooting pages I’ve found on the internet, I haven’t had any luck thus far. When I hold the Menu+Center buttons, the iPod will momentarily respond by keeping the Apple screen displayed until it begins restarting once more in a few seconds as I continue to hold the Menu+Center buttons. I have also tried to put it in disk mode by doing the above, and as the screen begins to reboot, pressing the Back+Forward buttons down simultaneously. This has yet to make the iPod respond any differently as it continues its rapid reboot cycle.
Any help here is greatly appreciated. I have a lot of old music I won’t be able to find anywhere on this thing.
