80gb iPod Classic 5th Gen quits at random moments

I bought my iPod about a year and a half ago. I replaced the battery a few months ago and now it sometimes stops for no apparant reason. Sometimes it keeps stopping even after I hit 'play'. The battery meter is full and it still does this. And today, I couldn't get it to play until I re-booted it.

I use it mainly at work (plugged into speakers) and in my car (plugged directly into my stereo)

Are these problems normal or do I need to send it somewhere for repair?

Thanks

DGD

Model A1136 - What generation is this please.


It's an iPod Classic, 5th gen. Another way to tell gen:

4th gen = no video support

5th gen = video support, U2 on the box, no search function under music menu

5.5 gen = video support, longer battery, "search" under music menu, Johnny Depp/Red Hot Chili Peppers on the box, brighter screen

Very low battery


It sounds perfectly fine. :P
The only problem is that the battery is very low! You have to wait for it to charge so that it can come up onto your computer, silly. Just let it charge for a few minutes and then I'm sure it will work fine. If there is still a huge problem with it, maybe you should call apple and see what they have to say about it.

I want to know which generation is the Ipod 30G model A1136, thanks


There are two 5th gen iPods, A1136 model is the older 2005 model, not the later 2006 model.

Here is Apples link: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1353#ipodfifth2 which will show the differences, but not by model number. The reason I know this model number is the first 5th gen 2005 is because I have one. Also older 2005 should have '2005' engraved on rear.

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 Battery


You should try using a different USB cable and connecting to a different USB port and seeing if the problem persists. If it does, the problem's probably with the iPod's logic board.

I-Pod wheel broken?


To reset an iPod with a Click Wheel, including: ipodnano3.jpg ipodclassic.jpg icon_ipod_5g.gif ipodnano2.jpg ipodnano.jpg ipodphoto.gif ipodg4.gif ipodmini.gif
  • iPod nano (3rd generation)
  • iPod classic
  • iPod (5th generation)
  • iPod nano (2nd generation)
  • iPod nano
  • iPod with color display (iPod photo)
  • iPod (Click Wheel)
  • iPod mini
  • iPod mini (2nd generation)
  1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
  2. Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.
Tip: If you are having difficulty resetting your iPod, set it on a flat surface. Make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel, and not near the center.
If the above steps did not work, try connecting iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep.
