Hi,
This is a common problem when the battery dies. There is no power so iTunes will not recognize it and the iPod will not come on. If you connect it to a wall charger, and you see the iPod come to life, then you know that it is the battery.

Yes, the batteries do die and usually do after 2 years, sometimes sooner depending on how much use it has had. Batteries on these are replaceable, but they are soldered to the circuit board, so they are not replaceable by ordinary folks. Good news, Apple and other companies will replace them for about $60 or you can trade it in on another and get a 10% rebate, or you can sell it on ebay and get some money to buy another. People buy them for parts. Hope that helps.

My ipod wont turn on or charge.


More than likely the battery just needs to be replaced. I let my nano go dead and it was doing the same thing. So just get it replaced and that should fix your problem.

Hi there,

It might be possible the you left your iPod playing overnight when you stopped using it. The batteries might be drained already and will need some time in the dock for it to be charged for the batteries to warm up and start charging again. Please ensure that the connections are not loose also.

Don't respond to them. It isn't legitimate. There selling something and I wish they would cancel his account.

It could be the battery. Do you have an Apple store nearby. You might want to have him look at it. They will do that for no charge.

Best Buy can look at them as well if you don't want to go back to Apple.

8 GB Ipod Nano went dead and now won't charge


does it work on the charger? if not, then contact apple or your dealer for more assistance or repairs.

If it works on the charger, plays music and so on, your battery is probably dead and you need a new one.
