Why isnt my ipod charging?


iPod's battery doesn't charge


Several things could keep your iPod's battery from charging. The major causes are listed below in logical order. Check each one to see if it's what's keeping your battery from charging.


Low-powered USB port

iPods that connect to USB ports require a high-power USB port.

Keyboards and some USB hubs will not charge iPod. Connect iPod directly to the computer or to a USB AC power adapter. Click here for more information.

Connect directly to computer

If you connect iPod to something that connects to the computer (like a USB hub or FireWire drive), connect iPod directly to the USB or

FireWire port on the computer.

FireWire port on a Windows PC

The FireWire (IEEE 1394) ports on some Windows-compatible computers may not be powered, and consequently won't charge iPod when you plug it in. Check here to see if the FireWire port on your PC can charge iPod.

Your computer goes to sleep

Your computer can only charge iPod when it's turned on and not asleep. Make sure your computer is on and not set to go to sleep when you want to charge iPod. Tip:

Some Macintosh computers can charge iPod even though they're asleep.
If your sleeping computer doesn't charge iPod, don't worry, just wake it and let iPod charge.


hope this helps

My computer will not recognize my gigaware 4GB video mp3 player and when i plug it into the computer a battery pops up on the mp3 player screen even though it has been charging for one day and i can not...


I'm not with this brand specifically, but it does sound a lot like the iPod so I will try to help...
Even though the battery is most likely fully charged, it will continue to show the battery symbol to show that it is charging/charged. Depending on the brand, there will be a different symbol between a charging battery and a charged battery.
As for your music, make sure you have the most current driver(s) installed on your computer.
Also try searching FixYa for similar problems.

Ipod Touch Battery


Your battery is fu.k.d up.  This thing ships with half a charge and your supposed to fully charge it before first using it.  Even though every genius out there will say that these batteries don't retain memory charge.  They are wrong.  You have set your battery memory to say full when it is only 1/4 fully charged.  Take the thing back to the store and exchange it for a new one if your within your 30 day window.  Take the thing back to the Apple store and exchange it out for a shiny new one if your within your 1 year window.  You don't need a receipt at the Apple store, cause they can just look on the back of the ipod and type in the serial #.  That tells them if the ipod was sold within the year or not.  Apple won't exchange the thing out if you dropped it hard or exposed the thing to liquids.

Not charging? :(


Here are the possible cause of the problem.

1. Bad battery
2. Loose wire connection
3. Firmware or program

The fact that "the battery shows full even though its not", I could say that the problem has something to do with the electrical wiring (could be the battery or loose wire).

If you're planning to reformat the device, I would suggest to contact the manufacturer. Because once you reformat it, the default program would be erased.

Have a great day!

Battery won't charge.


I just figured out the problem I had just like yours. I have three different sony MP3's and thought all the usb cables were the same. Well after changing out the usb cable my 438f started charging. I was using the cable from my s615f and the same is true if I use the 438 cable on the 615-full battery instantly. Also sony does not replace these batteries. If in warranty from purchase date, they will exchange with "like product" for $29, or repair yours for $77. Both prices include return shipping. http//eservice.sony.com

Battery on Sony Walkman NWZ-E436F


ok, just tried something with maybe a solution....

I was connected via an usb hub to my laptop, then it said battery is full, it apparently didn't charge.

When i connect my usb cable directly to my laptop it started to charge again!!.

My usb hub is not connected to a adapter so all power comes from the USB port, this may be not strong enough to charge your walkman.

Try this (so directly connect to your desk / laptop) it may work!

Sansa Clip not holding charge


Locking the player will not allow the player to charge properly, no matter how long you have it plugged in.

167labrie does your zen power up while it is plugged into the ac adapter? If this is the case it is a bad battery. I had this problem where the unit wouldn't take or hold a charge from the ac adapter or the usb cable and they ended up replacing the unit.
