    Specs:
    Late 2013 27" iMac, iPad 3, iPhone 6s+, iPhone 6+, 3 iPods, El Capitan
    If you've tried to reset it with iTunes and the red X still remains, it could be a bad hard drive. In other words, the hard drive within the Classic has failed. Are you able to recharge your Classic?

    If you go to iFixit: The free repair manual with the model number, it shows how to replace the drive.

    Have you reset it and if so then the problem is more than likely a failed drive.
    chscag beat me to it.

    The ifixit web site shows how to change the battery for your classic in addition to replacing the hard drive. A new hard drive for your classic is going to be expensive since they're really not produced any longer.
