When's the last time you charged your battery? Probably not recently. Plug in your iPod to your computer or an electrical wall outlet and let it charge for a couple hours or so. If this battery icon will still not go away, even after you charge your iPod, then you might have a problem. Try trouble shooting your iPod battery or get your bad battery replaced.
The folder icon means your iPod has a software problem. You should probably Restore your iPod with an iPod system update or erase your iPod.
The sad iPod is not something you want to see. You should try to erase and Restore your iPod. If this doesn't work, you need to replace the hard drive inside your iPod.
You might see this icon during an update or a restore. When you see this icon, disconnect your iPod from the computer and connect it to an iPod power adapter. It needs some juice to complete the update process. The update or restore will complete and iPod will restart to the main menu. However not all iPods come with a wall charger anymore. If you don't have an iPod wall charger you can do any of the following: 1) find a friend with a wall charger and borrow it, 2) go to an Apple store and use their wall charger, or 3) buy an iPod wall charger for yourself. It's not a bad thing to have. They come in handy when traveling.
Is your iPod configured to update songs manually? Do you frequently use your iPod as a hard drive to transport files? The "Do Not Disconnect" message will appear as long as your iPod is connected to your computer. If you are having problems disconnecting your iPod, please read the Do Not Disconnect Won't Go Away article on our website.
