Hi, i just buy an ipod video G5 30gb 15 days ago, cheap, about 10$usd because the problem with this was the legend : battery very low, please wait.... so when i open, i saw i little issue in the battery cable connector, 2 pins united with a pellet (i don know the name in english, in spanish is "sarro", google translate said sarro=tartar....) so i buy a new battery but when i connected, my ipod 30gb wake up with a SAD FACE....

How is possible if was working, (interface) good, the only and principal problem was battery... i was trying everything, buton select+menu  and right away select+play to put in disk mode the ipod, with this the ipod only get battery charging, and the PC or Mac not detect the ipod like external disk or something... so this isn´t a solution......

I read two things interesting, first theory to fix SAD FACE, is drop the ipod against the floor, from 2 meters or something high... to get the internal pieces from Hard disk unlock.... it sounds like it makes some sense but danger for our ipods....

Second theory, sometimes, when you open frist time an ipod, (first time for the ipod, not for u) some connections get losse in some points, and is a coincidense when you replace a display for example and get a sad face, or like my case, for replace a battery a get the SAD FACE in my ipod video, this sound with sense too...

So i decided to combine this two possible solutions, i open my ipod, disconnect battery, hard drive and the other flex cable to connect in middle of logic board, i wait 5 minutes, and hit a little the hard drive against my other hand, past this, i begin to assemble everything, first the hard drive, second the flex cable who contain the 3.5 jack, last the battery...... and guess what? this method WORKSSS¡¡¡ now this ipod video is working, i restore and i put music and videos to test, and yes, everything is working fine
