Try the reset, it should fix the recognition problem and maybe the others too.

  1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then
  2. turn it off again.)
  3. Press and hold the Play/Pause and Menu buttons simultaneously until the Apple/iPod logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.
  4. When you reset iPod all your music and files are saved, but some customized settings may be lost. Date and time is preserved (unless the iPod reset itself because it had no power and then was reconnected to power). Other customized settings, such as Bookmarks, On-The-Go Playlists, Shuffle, Backlight timer, and so forth are preserved from the last time

The icon should only be flashing if it is actually charging. If the icon appears solid, then your ipod must register that the battery is charged. If after this the ipod experiences a short battery life, then your batttery should be replaced. Ipod batery need to be properly cycled up and down. IN the battery, there a small chip that reports its capacity to the ipod. If the battery is failing, then it will not report accurate calibrated levels/capacity...If your ipod is atleast 2 years old, it most likely need a new battery.

Typically, USB 2.0 high-power ports are located directly on your computer.

For windows users "When you plug your iPod nano into a power source, the charging icon appears?it's a lightning bolt over a battery. Depending on the state of the battery, it may or may not animate (flash between gray and green). In either case, the icon indicates the battery is charging successfully.

The non-animated version of the icon, shown above, appears when your battery has been fully or nearly depleted of charge. This appears for up to 10 minutes. Note: If your iPod nano is connected to the computer, the computer won't see it until after that 10 minutes has elapsed. After that, you'll see the ""Do not disconnect"" screen.

How long do I charge my new galaxy tab e


All mobile device manufacturers recommend a minimum 24 hour charging time for new devices since the internal cell may have lost its charge after leaving the factory. While it is charging, don't power it on, but you may give the power button a quick tap and bring up an animated icon of the cell and its present charge. When the icon seems as it is full, remove the charging cable and press the power button longer (a second or more) to turn the tablet on.

To my knowledge, here are some of the things you will notice while charging your phone:
  • After connecting the USB cable, It will show you a pop-up. Choose "Charge only".
  • When you go to Menu->Notifications, you will see a "Charge only" under Ongoing section.
  • The battery icon at the top will be animated if not yet full (moving green color).
  • You will also see a USB icon at the top.
  • A LED indicator will glow green when full.
  • You can feel a little heat in your phone while charging.

How do I know the sandisk is fully charged


I just bought a Sansa 8GB Clip, when the battery is completely charged the yellow battery icon (at the top right of the screen, to the right of "Connected") stays solid and is not animated, with the center horizontal bar completely filling the inner section of the icon. While it is charging the center horizontal bar is animated and slides from right to left. At no time does my battery icon turn green.

Flashing icons while charging... am I really charging?


If the iPod is showing the "Sad iPod face" icon, this means that the hard drive inside the iPod (located on the logic/circuit board) has died/failed and needs to be replaced. If you plan on replacing this part, you may also need to purchase and solder a new battery to the iPod logic board if you were to do it yourself.
