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.

JBL on stage micro will not charge my ipod any more. It plays songs fine from the ipod but for some reason is not charging it. Any suggestions?


The JBL Onstage Micro is supposed to disable recharging of the iPod when running off AAA batteries to avoid draining them, but sometimes this setting gets stuck even when the unit is plugged in through the AC adaptor. The workaround that I found is pulling out and reconnecting the iPod to the Onstage Micro (while both are powered on) and then unplugging and reconnecting the AC adaptor. Sometimes you have to repeat this process, but the iPod should start recharging after that. I tried it on the new 5th generation nano and this seems to work.

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.

Ipod shows its connected when not plugged in


Take the hold switch and turn it on, then off. After this press the center button along with the Play/Pause button and it should reset your iPod. This may solve the problem.

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
