New Battery Didn't Fix The Problem!

Okay, my Ipod was working fine and then my laptop crashed and I had to charge it from a wall adapter. I restore my laptop, Itunes is fine and I restore my iPod and it won't charge. I leave it alone for a couple of months then i get a new battery and the man who sold me the battery told me to leave the iPod charged for 18 hours. It's still charging and it has no juice in it to function without being plugged in to a power source. Is there any hope in fixing the iPod or should I just get a new one?

Get the connection checked from the battery to the ipod itself because it may not be connected and your ipod may not be getting power from the battery. Or the battery may be completely dead.

Everytime I unplug my Nano from my laptop after recharging, it goes dead. Problem persists even after restoring. Is the battery gone?


Could be, what was your method of charging like did you use a wall charger or use the computer to charge it coz using a computer slowly decreases the battery life of an ipod

Ipod nano 3rd no display after new battery put in. It beeps twice when plugged into the wall charger. The computer can see it just fine.


It may need a new logic board as well but first, try a restore. Connect your iPod with the cable that came with it to the USB port on your computer. In iTunes, click and (Restore). This will rebuild all the software on the iPod and restore your songs. If that doesn't work, I guess it's the logic board. Unfortunately, replacing that is going to cost almost as much as a new iPod.

Tried to do a restore on my 20 gig Ipod A1059. It started the restore and then it went to a screen showing a wall adapter. I always charge via USB and don't have a wall adapter. Help!?!


Hi,

try to reset it as described on the apple site, if you cvan't try anything that helps like restoring.
if it's the same like with other ipod it might be:
1 lock and unlock it with he hold button (just do it like HOLD on and off)
2 press and hold the select and menu buttons until you can see the apple symbol on the screen...

I hope this is useful, and greets,

Olivier.

My ipod wont turn on


Hi,

If your ipod won't turn on then try these.make sure you click on the blue links for more info.

Make sure the Hold switch is off
  1. 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.
  2. To turn the hold switch off, slide it until you no longer see the orange patch.
  3. 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.
ts1383_2.jpg 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:
  1. Disconnect iPod from all power sources and leave it disconnected for about 24 hours.
  2. 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.

I pod problems


Hi
I think your battery may be going bad or you need to purchase a wall charger to fully charge your battery. Charging your iPod on your computer works fine for a while, but as the battery gets older, it needs more charging and often it doesn't get enough from the computer. Try a wall charger first. Charge it all the way up until it stops charging. If it still shows a low battery you need to have a new battery. There are a lot of places that can do it. Hope that helps.

New replacement battery won't charge.


Hi,

What you can try is to connect it to your Desktop computer USB port at the rear of you computer and charge it for 8 hrs atleast..

then try this step once

  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
and also try this at last

  1. Ensure that you have an active Internet connection as new versions of iTunes and iPod Software may need to be downloaded to your computer.
  2. Download and install the latest version of iTunes if you do not already have it installed.
  3. Open iTunes, and then connect your iPod to your computer using the USB or FireWire cable that came with your iPod.
  4. After a few moments, your iPod will appear in the Source panel in iTunes.
  5. Select your iPod in the Source panel and you will see information about your iPod appear in the Summary tab of the main iTunes windows.
  6. Click the Restore button. You will be prompted with one or more restore options that may prompt iTunes to automatically download 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 available.
    • Restore Option 4: Restore and Update - Restores with the latest iPod Software available.
  7. If you are using a Mac, a message will appear prompting you to enter an administrator’s name and password.
  8. 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 present one of two messages on screen with instructions specific to the iPod model you are restoring.
    • Restore Instruction 1: Disconnect iPod and connect it to iPod Power Adapter (typically applies to older iPod models).
    • Restore Instruction 2: Leave iPod connected to computer to complete restore (typically applies newer iPod models).
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
