Strange noise after battery replacement, device won't boot
my old iPod was dead because of a broken battery, so I purchased a kit including a battery on iFixit and followed the guide to replace it.
When connecting the new battery though, the backlight switched on and the device started making a weird noise, like a disk spinning out of control.
I figured by HD was dead too, so I ordered an SD Card adaptor and installed that.
But again, when hooking up the battery, same thing; the same weird noise.
Does anyone have experience with this? What could be causing this?
It sounds as if the noise is coming from the headphone jack, but when I disconnect that, I have the same issue, though not as loud.
Would my motherboard be broken? Or the headphone jack?
I can keep on ordering parts and do trial and error, but it’s already turning out an expensive “fix”, as nothing seems to work…
The backlight comes on, but the device won’t boot, also not by trying to reset or anything.
I’ve disconnected the battery now as I’m afraid I’m going to break more things…
Thanks in advance!
