    Yup, same here guys. None of my ipod chargers work.

  • MrsCurrie May 24, 2009

    Husband's iPod Touch is useable if plugged in, but does not charge. It stays at 20% no matter how long it sits on a charger. We thoguht it was originally HIS PC... but we tried it on MY PC -- and it still does not charge.



    The suggestion someone posted about clicking the off/power button and the home button at the same time will reset it --- do NOT work for my husband's.



    Anyone having any idea of how to fix this OURSELVES - please post up!! Thank you!

What you do is hold down the sleep button and the home button at the same time till the screen goes black then it will restart and it should work again.

Wont turn on after reset


The iPod Touch has a battery capable of up to 40 hours of audio playback, but depending on how you use your iPod, the battery capacity can vary widely. If you attempt to turn your iPod on and get no result, the battery could be fully drained, which you can easily resolve by connecting it to your computer to recharge it. If this doesn't work, resetting or restoring your iPod may get it working once again.

Charge Connect your iPod Touch to your computer using the USB cable that came with it and charge it for at least 10 minutes before attempting to use it again. If the battery is fully drained, the screen may remain blank for a few minutes after plugging it in, and then a low battery image will appear, indicating that you shouldn't unplug it for at least 10 minutes. Never plug your iPod into your keyboard, but rather into the computer itself. Also make sure your computer is on and not in sleep mode while your iPod is charging, or the battery may drain rather than charge. Reset b> If recharging your iPod doesn't resolve the issue, reset it while it remains connected to your computer. Push the "Sleep/Wake" button and the "Home" button simultaneously until the battery symbol or the Apple logo appears. This takes about 10 seconds. Continue to charge your iPod if the low battery image appears after the reset. Restore b> If your iPod Touch still isn't responding, restore it in recovery mode. First, place your iPod in recovery mode by disconnecting it from the USB cable, and then press and hold the "Home" and "Sleep/Wake" buttons simultaneously until the iPod turns off. Push the "Home" button once again, and continue to hold it while you re-connect your iPod to your computer using the USB cable. Continue holding the "Home" button while the iPod turns on and release it only when the "Connect to iTunes" screen appears. Open iTunes, and click "OK" when the recovery mode alert appears. ITunes will restore your iPod back to factory settings. You'll be able to sync it with iTunes to recover the data you lost during the restore, provided you have synced with iTunes in the recent past. Check Liquid Contact Indicators b> All iPods manufactured since 2006 have built-in liquid contact indicators. If your iPod has been in contact with liquid, this could be the source of your problem. You can check whether the liquid contact indicators have been triggered by looking straight down the headphone jack on your iPod. If you see red or pink at the bottom of the headphone jack, your iPod has been in contact with liquid, and this is likely the cause of its malfunction. Contact an authorized Apple repair center to inquire about whether a repair is possible. Such repairs aren't covered under your iPod's warranty. iPod touch: Hardware troubleshooting http://support.apple.com/kb/ts2771 iOS: Unable to update or restore http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1808

Tip

The iPod USB Charger


<p>The USB cable that came with all iPod has two purposes: to your device to your computer so you can update and add music, and iPod to charge. All iPods have a lithium ion battery stops charging when the battery is full, the total life of your battery is not affected if you leave the iPod is connected to a power source. It usually takes four hours to recharge most iPods. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Connect the USB connector into an available high-power USB 2.0 port on your computer. Low-power USB ports, such as those in external keyboards and hubs do not work. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Connect the 30-pin connector at the other end of the USB cable 30-pin connector on your iPod. If you charge an iPod shuffle, there is no dock connector port. Instead, use the connector on the other end of USB cable that fits in the headset. Set the iPod down and let it recharge. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Unplug the USB cable when the iPod battery indicator is full. If you charge an iPod shuffle, the green light will appear. <br />

There is no sound or display on the screen when it is power on


The Apple iPod uses a rechargeable, lithium-based battery that can go between 10 and 36 hours between charges, depending on the model. You can charge your iPod using either an electrical outlet or your computer's USB port, but if you find that your iPod no longer takes or maintains a charge despite having the right connections, you should try some basic troubleshooting methods to restore the device's battery life.

Connect your iPod to a different USB port or wall outlet. If you use a USB port to charge your iPod, you may simply have a low-powered port, according to Apple. You can often resolve this by switching the cable to a different port, or using a wall charger (sold separately) to recharge instead. Charge your iPod for several hours. If you find your iPod completely unresponsive even as it charges, leave it plugged in for three or four hours and check again. If your battery life has been depleted completely, the iPod will need time before it can begin functioning again. Restart your iPod. A frozen or dysfunctional iPod may fail to charge, but a quick reset can fix basic functionality glitches. To reset a touch-wheel iPod, hold down the "Select" and "Menu" buttons until the gray Apple emblem appears on the screen. For iPod Touch, hold down the "Sleep" and "Home" buttons (the only two buttons on the device). Connect your iPod to your PC using the provided USB cable, open the iTunes software and click the "iPod" tab in the left column. Then click the "Update" button to search for and install the latest iPod software. Apple recommends keeping your software up-to-date to ensure that your battery life remains fully optimized. Purchase a new battery from Apple. If your battery fails to charge despite all your troubleshooting efforts, it may simply be too old and depleted to continue functioning. By taking advantage of Apple's iPod Out-of-Warranty Battery Replacement Program (see Link Below), you can send in your iPod and receive a replacement battery or replacement http://www.apple.com/support/ipod/service/battery/ iPod for a modest fee.

When I Connect My Ipod Touch 8gb To My Computer It Wont Turn On And I Didnt Charge It For Like A Month What Should I Do Please Help Me!!!


You are right, it doesn't have enough power to turn on because the battery was drained. You're saying that it wont charge? It could only be the USB cable problem. Try to use a different iPod USB cable and check if it charges the iPod. Another thing is try to charge the iPod using the stand alone USB charger. Your iPod requires high power input. If that doesn't work, you may start to think that it is a battery failure.

I pod touch


ipods are only designed for itunes so windows shouldn't recognise media player, any way, the new software for ipod touches is greater, meaning your computer/windows media player wont recognise it, only itunes will.
