Take you ipod to your nearest Apple Store or Best Buy to find out what the problem is.  It could be the hard drive or the battery.  When the sick image display is on the screen, it has to be taken in for service.

Shuffle not working


If an iPod appears not to turn on, check the hold switch on the device.


If this switch is activated while the device is off, it will not power on again until the hold switch is turned off.


If that is determined not to be the problem, the battery's charge should be checked.

When the battery is no longer holding a charge, the device will not power on, but will show a battery icon on the screen for a few seconds.


If you see this icon while trying to boot up the iPod, just connect it to the USB cable and allow the battery to charge, which can sometimes take up to 30 minutes before the iPod becomes operable again.


If no battery icon appears when trying to turn on the device, try resetting the iPod.

Once reset, the device should turn on, but if it does not, the battery may need to be drained first (by leaving the iPod disconnected from power for up to 24 hours), and the reset procedure tried again.

hope this helps

IPOD Classic 80G apple icon then red x icon or restore in itunes


I know you tried to fix it, but trying multiple times may work.

The message "go to www.apple.com/support/ipod" usually is preceded by, or followed by, the Apple logo or the sad face icon. It directs you to the Apple support site because either the iPod software is corrupted or their is a hardware problem. You should try to reset the iPod (try several times). If that doesn't right the iPod, then try to restore it (which will erase the entire iPod and reload the software.

Follow the links above and see if that gets your iPod working. You might want to see if you can update the iPod/iTunes software or try this troubleshooting guide. If it is really a hardware problem then your iPod needs to be taken in for service.

My ipod 120gb ipod classic does nothing but show apple logo and never disapears


When the Apple Logo is stuck
If this happens, put the iPod into Disk Mode through the diagnostic menue. Then connedct the iPod to your computer and update or restore the iPod.
Sometimes you can get away with just updating the iPod, so try that first, but usually you have to restore the iPod .
As always make backups of your music files, because the restore procedure will eliminate them.
Good Luck,
I hope this helps

Battery icon won't show when charging...


Have you already reset the iPod? If not I would try that first. It may be that your battery is shot though. It's not a relatively expensive repair though.

To reset the iPod Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.) Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step. Tip: If you are having difficulty resetting your iPod, set it on a flat surface. Make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel, and not near the center.

If that does not start the iPod to charging you can go to (www.rapidrepair.com) and view free repair guides that show you how to replace the battery as well as how much it will cost to replace. Good luck. Hopefully the reset resolves your issue and you will not need a new battery. Let me know how it turns out

Ipod only works wih a power source


Well there is a remote chance it's a battery issue, but most likely you have a broken logic board. If you're not covered under the warranty you can try to open it and make sure the battery is connected properly. There are iPod repair guide websites, that show how to open the iPod classic and replace components.
