Corry, the first thing I would do is to replace the battery. With all the stuff you are going to replace it stands to reason that you need a new one. After that take a look at the dock connector. Check for bend, broken, and corroded pins. Also clean your logic board and dock connector with isopropyl alcohol, just like you would for water damage. If your computer does not recognize the iPod and it does not charge, it all points to the dock connector. When you have it connected via USB cable, take a measurement at the battery points you should at least get around 3V on there.
