If you replaced your iPod/iPhone screen and now your devise won't power on you may need to ground the battery. Here is a little tutorial on how to do it. I have successfully done this on several iPods.

Step 1:

Circled here is the battery terminal you want to ground. The rectangle metal part shown on the body is what you want to ground it against. **Make sure the iDevice is unplugged**

Step 2:

Take a small screwdriver & touch the battery terminal and metal housing at the same time to ground. You may see small sparks and this is fine.

Step 3:

Now plug in the power supply & you will see the Apple boot logo, (NOTE: Make sure both of the screen connectors are plugged in the back of the iDevlce and that no cables were torn)

<p>Dude, you are a lifesaver. I have no idea how you figured this out, but it's exactly what I needed. Thanks!</p>
<p>Thank you so much for this! I was starting to panic. </p>
