    Send it in or buy a new battery and install it your self thats about it. theirs no way to just fix hardware problems thats like asking if theirs a way to chop threw a tv with an ax then try to get it to work again.

    wow! mine actually did that the other day (like 4 days ago). Give it like a week to dry out. Like with mine, the first 2 days it didn't power on, after that, there was some battery issues (wouldn't charge) and the backlight had water damage. About 4 days after that (today) it works perfectly (except it wont auto-pause whenever the headphones are taken out anymore), and the backlight looks just fine.

    Okay, before i go digging in i need to get this straight.
    Okay, so first i use the video to learn how to get the battery out.
    So from there i remove the battery and put a new one or what?

    I don't know if i mentioned this but the iPod is a Nano/Video.
