Question about Apple iPod touch

IPod Won't Charge

My iPod Touch (8GB) won't charge if it's plugged into the computer, car, or wall. I bought a new charger for it, but it still won't charge. When I plug it in,
a little battery comes on the screen and it looks like it's charging but it's not. It also does that in the car, and in the wall. When I press the home button, a battery comes on again, but it looks like I have to plug it into the computer.(When it's not charging.) Plus when I plug it into the computer,
in iTunes, it does not come on as a device. (When I usually plug it in, it usually comes on as a device.) So please help me!

I am assuming that this is the First Gen iPod Touch. My friend had this problem and the way that I fixed it for him is to drain the battery completely, so that it won't turn on. (Even the display shouldn't turn on and say VERY LOW BATTERY with a charge icon).
Plug it into the WALL SOCKET and charge it for 24-48 hours.
If this doesn't work, then the battery is defect. If it is still in Warrenty. Visit the Genius Bar in any apple store and see what they can do

    Mine is not a first generation ipod touch, I just got it about 2 months ago and it is the newest ipod touch. The problems described above are the same problems that mine is experiencing and I do not have a wall charger. Is there anything I can do?

First you need to read this page and follow the instructions on settings the touch into recovery mode

http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1808

ones in recovery mode you can remove the code by restoreing the ipod with itunes heres how


Restore

  • Note: Because Restore erases all of the songs and files on iPod, make sure to back up any files you've saved on the iPod disk. All of your songs, videos, podcasts, audiobooks, and games can be loaded back to your iPod provided that you have them stored in your iTunes Library.

How to restore your iPod:
For Windows:
  • 1. Make sure you've reinstalled the latest version of iTunes.
  • 2. Open iTunes, and then connect your iPod to your computer.
  • 3. After a few moments, it will appear in the source list in iTunes.
  • 4. Select your iPod in the source list and you will see information about it appear in the Summary tab of the main iTunes windows.
  • 5. Click the Restore button. You will be prompted with one or more restore options that may prompt iTunes to automatically download of the latest iPod Software. The 4 possible restore options are:
    • Restore Option 1: Restore - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod.
    • Restore Option 2: Use Same Version - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod even though a newer version is available.
    • Restore Option 3: Use Newest Version - Restores with the latest iPod Software on your computer.
    • Restore Option 4: Restore and Update - Restores with the latest iPod Software on your computer.
  • 6. A progress bar will appear on the computer screen indicating that the first stage of the restore process has started. When this stage is completed, iTunes will instruct you to leave iPod connected to your computer to complete restore.
  • 7. During the stage 2 of the restore process, the iPod will show an Apple logo as well as a progress bar at the bottom of the display. It is critical that the iPod remains connected to the computer or iPod Power adapter during this stage. Note: The progress bar may be difficult to see since the backlight on the iPod display may be off.
  • 8. After stage 2 of the restore process is complete and the iPod is connected to the computer, the iTunes Setup Assistant window will appear asking you to name your iPod and choose your syncing preferences similar to when you connected your iPod for the first time.

SOURCE: My Computer and iTunes does not recognize my iPod Touch

Try resetting it while it is connected. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
If you have not already tried, I would also try the other ports on the computer.

Are you running iTunes 8?

And what kind of computer do you have?

I have an ipod model a1199. i was wondering if you can use a newer ipod touch charger for it? and if not what kind of charger does it use?


Charge an iPod Nano Without a Charger
If you've misplaced or broken the charger that came with your iPod Nano, you might think you need to purchase a new one in order to continue using your Mp3 player.
However, there is a way that you can continue enjoying your iPod without having to purchase a new charger.
As long as you have a USB cord and a computer, you can charge your iPod without having the charger.

Locate the USB cord that came with your iPod Nano package.
It is the same cord that you use in order to sync or transfer music.
Plug the small end into your iPod Nano.

Plug the other, larger end into your computer's USB port.
Choose "Do Nothing" when your computer presents the dialogue box to let you choose what to do with the hardware or USB connection.
Leave your Nano plugged into your computer for at least 4 hours to charge.
Unplug your iPod Nano when charging is complete.
Charge an iPod Without the Charger
Many iPod owners purchase a charging unit that plugs into a standard wall outlet to recharge the iPod's battery.
However, the iPod wall charger is not included with new purchases, so consumers must either purchase a separate charger or find a way to charge their iPod using other means.
Here's a simple method to charge your iPod using your computer.

Plug the iPod USB cable into the bottom of your iPod.
Plug the other end of the iPod USB cable into a free USB port on your Mac or PC computer.

Open the iTunes program by clicking on the icon in the Dock on a Mac or using the Start menu on a PC.
Click on the name of your iPod under the "Devices" heading in the main iTunes window.
Click on the "Sync" button to synchronize your iPod with your computer data.
While the iPod is syncing, the power from the USB port on your computer will charge your iPod's battery.

Unplug your iPod from the computer once the battery is fully charged.

This one should be ok.

My ipod wont charge when i plug it in


Hello, welcome to Fixya!

If your ipod won't charge, the fault should either be from the battery or from the means by which you are charging it.

If the battery is very weak, then it might not come-up when using charger or PC to charge it. Leave the ipod in the charge for about 6 hours and it should come up if the battery is weak.

But if it doesn't come up, then you have to check your charger. Test your charger with a friend's ipod. If the charge works with your friend's ipod then it means your battery is the cause of the problem.

The essence of the above test is to diagnose and get to the root of the problem. So that a precise/concise solution can be proffered.

I hope the above is clear. If not, please let me know.

Regards.

8GB Ipod touch, won't charge any more, won't take a charge from the computer USB or the wall charger? What to do?


It seems like your iPod's battery has outrun its use.
There are 3 options you can choose from:
  1. If it is less than a year old, you can go to the Apple Store and they will replace the device for free on the spot as part of their 1 year warranty.
  2. You can choose to pay someone at the Apple Store a fee to replace the battery if it is older than a year
  3. If you are looking to get a new iPod anyway, bring an old one into an Apple Store, tell them you are looking to buy a new one, and you will get 10% off.

My ipod doesn't turn on it's blank


Step 1: Try charging your iPod with your wall charger, after about 5 - 10 minutes it should come on. (You might have forgotten to charge it)
Step 2: If that doesnt work, try step 1, but this time instead of charging your iPod with a wall charger, connect it to your computer. (Your wall charger may have malfunctioned)
If it still doesnt work, its highly possible that your iPod's battery might have died. If you bought it within one year, you can go to the Apple Store and get a free replacement on the spot (part of the warranty). If not, try to have them repair it for a fee OR give them your old iPod, and buy a new one for 10% off
