My iPod has been skipping songs for the past month or so, and, lately, it's started heating up while in use.

Earlier tonight, I started playing it after fully recharging the battery. A few minutes later, when songs began to skip, I reset it--and that's when the screen turned black. The iPod shuts off by itself after a few minutes, but pressing the "play" part of the click wheel brings the black screen back.

Is the battery dead, or is there something I can do to save it without replacing the battery? Attempting to recharge does nothing to fix the problem.

I've had my iPod since February 2005, if that helps.
