IPod not getting switched on and not recongised by system

I have not been using my iPod (say for 1 - 2 months) and now I find it's not getting switched on and also not recongised by the system when connected thru a USB port. Please help. I remember the last time I tried to use my iPod to listen to songs, the battery level was very low. I tried charging it thru my system's USB only. Looks like my iPod's battery is drained. I tried connecting to USB for some 4 hours, but the same blank screen continues. Is there still a way to get this resolved?

Accidently pulled cord out will itunes was doing something, and i now have on my ipod screen itunes and and cord pointing to it, so i plug it in the computer and it isnt recongising it

if you have a power block, or a power adaptor that you can plug into the wall, do that if it dosn't fix it within the first 5 minutes, toggle the lock switch a couple of times, then hold the select button and the menu button at the same time. Or it might be the select and play/pause button, it varies with the model of ipod. Hope this helps!

I got my son an iPod three months ago and it has stopped working. It won't turn on or do anything, not even if plugged in to computer. It just seems dead.

Well I have seen in several cases where the iPod batteries die. In general, batteries CAN be replaced, but it means taking the iPod apart and getting the correct parts etc. I have done this with older models and it can work really well.

However, if the iPod is only 3 months old (unless you bought it used) I would suggest taking it to your local Apple store and having them take a look at it...3 months should easily be a warranty fix, or they may replace the iPod if that's the case.

If it is a used iPod, I would look up the specific generation and probably find a replacement battery on eBay (they usually come in kits) and youtube is full of videos with instructions on how to do a battery replacement.

My lock symbol wont come off my ipod can you please help?

1. Try sliding the little switch on the top on and off several times. If that doesn't work the slide switch is broken. If it's under warranty (12 months), take it to your nearest Authorised Apple Service Centre and they will get it exchanged in a couple of days
No warranty? Google "iPod repairs" in your country and you should be able to find someone who can fix it. The usually have a self diagnosis on line so will get an idea of the cost before you begin

My 2g iphone isnt being recongised by my laptop it says USB not recognised. The cable works with other Ipods and I can only charge the phone via electricity when its turned off. Pls help

to isolate if there's something wrong with the laptop, try to plug in other usb devices on all of the usb ports. if other devices works, then you need to reinstall Itunes on your computer and get the latest version. and of course, Iphones only work on USB 2.0 ports.

Apple iPod touch Not able to Switch ON

Use the Ziphone ipod touch and iphone jailbreak GUI to put the ipod in recovery mode. Then restore it using iTunes.

You don't have to jail break it.

THat happened to me once when I installed something on my ipod.

it kept on restarting, and i used ziphone recovery and started over.

Make sure to get 1.1.4 firmware. its the most recent update on ipod touch.
