Question about Apple iPod MA446LL/A MP3 Player

No Battery power remains connect ipod to power

Hi
I have a 30gb video ipod (5th Gen I think).
Bought it from ebay.It worked absolutley fine but I did change the battery.
I synched it with my PC and transferred my music on to it.

I think I may have unplugged it while it was charging.
Now, although the battery is full, the Ipod keeps dying after a few seconds ofplay and then just displays the message" no battery remains connect to power. What can I do to fix the problem?

regards
H

    So did you replace the battery yourself?
    and if you did, did this only start happening after the battery was replaced?

Hi,
Sounds like your battery circuit is not working properly. Since you have opened it before, open it again and check to see that the little plug where you put the battery tab in is pushed down to make a good connection. Sometimes the plug connector is in the up position and needs to be gently put back down to have good contact.

You could have also messed up the battery connector when you disconnected the first battery to change it. Sometimes that happens if too much force is used. I use a pair of tweazers to just gently pull the battery tab out of its plug. I also use the tweazers to gently push it back in without moving the connector up and down.

You could also have a bad battery. Have you tried putting the old battery back in to see if that works.

Hope that helps.

In trying to replace battery I severed a cable that appears to go to the disable switch. Switch was on orange so now I can not turn Ipod on. Is there a fix?


always be careful when opening electronics; you should know or at least have an understanding of basic locations and wiring. i can tell you for sure; solder the cable back to where it was connected and you should recover power. note the cabe may be insulated so just twisting both end together might not work. you need to remove the insulation before you reconnect both ends.

Model A1136 - What generation is this please.


It's an iPod Classic, 5th gen. Another way to tell gen:

4th gen = no video support

5th gen = video support, U2 on the box, no search function under music menu

5.5 gen = video support, longer battery, "search" under music menu, Johnny Depp/Red Hot Chili Peppers on the box, brighter screen

I want to know which generation is the Ipod 30G model A1136, thanks


There are two 5th gen iPods, A1136 model is the older 2005 model, not the later 2006 model.

Here is Apples link: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1353#ipodfifth2 which will show the differences, but not by model number. The reason I know this model number is the first 5th gen 2005 is because I have one. Also older 2005 should have '2005' engraved on rear.

30GB 5th gen ipod video does not play any songs


I have had the same problem on my sisters ipod. Unfortunately I could not fix it. You can take it down to the apple store and have their genius bar look at it, even though most of the time I know more about ipods than they do they will at least be aware the problem exists. I pulled the hard drive out and put it into another iPod to test it. The hard drive is fine. My best guess is that a transistor or something on the circuit board went bad and is not allowing for that function. What I did was sold it on eBay as broken for $86 bucks. I then went to apple.com/store and scrolled to the bottom left of the page and they sell refurbished ipods that appear new with the same warrenty as a new one. We bought my sister a 80GB classic for $179 minus the $86 we got from the broken one. It was nice to have the new one for less than a $100 total. It's either that or find someone that knows how to replace the circuit board which costs around $70 bucks used. Good luck.

IPod Battery


You should try using a different USB cable and connecting to a different USB port and seeing if the problem persists. If it does, the problem's probably with the iPod's logic board.

Ipod video 5th gen issue with downloading music


You should try using a different USB cable as it's very possible the cable is damaged. If that's not the problem, the logic board is probably defective and you can either replace it if you're comfortable enough opening your iPod or sell the iPod listing the defects on eBay.
