5th generation ipod will not charge

I have a 5th generation ipod and the battery drained and I plugged it in to charge and it shows to be charging but when I unplugged it, it was still drained. I tried another port and the wall charger as well. Finally, I replaced the battery and it worked like a charm for the battery life on the new battery then I plugged it in and again...will not charge. Still, with the new battery it shows to be charging and when unplugged it is drained. I took it back apart and made positive all was snug in it's positions and still nothing! HELP!!!

    Same here. Battery started running down quickly so I bought a replacement battery. However, it will not hold a charge. I have used the AC as well as the USB, but no dice. My PC and car stereo have no problem recognizing my ipod and I can play music while plugged in, but within seconds of disconnecting from either source...dead.

    Well, mine just simply won't charge. Take it to Apple and they'll repair it

My ipod is not turning back on


No problem, try to charge it again. Now make sure you are using a good cable and a good charger. After you plugged the charger in, the screen should come on after a few minutes, to show a red (empty) battery logo.
Then after it is charged (could take a few hors) it is supposed to work normal.

Ipod does not power up


Check to see if the Hold switch is on. It's located on the top or the bottom of iPod. When it's in the on position, you'll see an orange patch.
To turn the hold switch off, slide it until you no longer see the orange patch. Press any button to turn on iPod. Make sure the battery is charged iPod won't turn on if the battery is empty. Instead, a low battery screen appears for about 3 seconds when you try to turn it on.
To charge your iPod, connect your iPod to your computer's built-in 6-pin FireWire or high-powered USB port or connect it to the Apple iPod

Power Adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet. Note: iPod models without a Click Wheel cannot be charged via

USB. iPod shuffle requires a high-power USB port to charge. iPod nano and iPod (5th generation) can charge via USB or FireWire, but they require USB to sync with iTunes. If you're not sure what iPod model you have, click here.

If you are connecting via USB and the battery is completely discharged, there may be up to a 30-minute delay before iPod powers up. Click here for more information. Reset iPod
If iPod still does not turn on or appears to be "frozen" you may need to reset it. When you reset iPod all your songs and files are saved. Some customized settings may be lost. Let the iPod battery drain
In rare cases, iPod might get into a state in which it needs to be drained completely before it can be reset. If iPod didn't turn on after you reset it, follow these steps:
Disconnect iPod from all power sources and leave it disconnected for about 24 hours. Reconnect iPod to the Apple iPod Power Adapter or computer and reset it. Update iPod's software
If iPod turns on after you reset it, use the latest version of iTunes to update iPod. b>

The 5th Generation iPod (iPod video) were made and sold in 2005. Batteries inside iPods tend to last 2 to 3 years (4 if you hardly use them). It could be time to replace the battery inside your iPod.

Ipod won't turn on


it's a broken battery, your dock station probably charges through the firewire port and is strong enough to power up the ipod without a charged battery, the USB port alone isn't. if you're tech savy or have a tech savy friend you can use a ipod repair guide that will show you how to replace the battery step by step, or you can go to the ipod repair nyc.

60 GB iPod won't recharge


probably, when you replaced the battery, you didn't properly inserted its contact to the board connector, so just open the ipod again and re-install it, make sure it's all the way down into connector
