Question about Apple iPod MA446LL/A MP3 Player

1 Answer

New replacement battery won't charge.

I recently replace the battery in my 30G ipod hoping this would fix the problem. So, I have had it plugged in to the wall now for 2 weeks and still -no charge when unplugged. I can turn it on and play as usual while it's plugged in, but when I unplug it, it's another story. It does nothing at all. Black screen.
I thought I would try plugging it into my PC and low and behold, a message "Very low battery, please wait"...well I have been waiting for days and still nothing.
Could it be that I just got a bunk battery or is it something else?

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.

I pod got wet wont work


Ipon the ipods case up. then Put the ipod in a zip lock bag full of uncooked raw white rice. seal the bag and leave it in there for 2 days. rice absorbs water. it should dry it up.
dont try to plug the ipod in or it will fry the circuit and you will destroy it.
If you need to know how to open an ipod case go to my website.

Is this a battery issue or hard drive?


Make sure the battery is of this type:
Power
•Battery capacity: 830 mAh
•Battery Type: Li-ion

If this type of battery does not work, it is neither the battery, nor the hard drive. The problem is with the circuit. Unless you are an electronic genius with the right tools, it would be impossible to fix. There are no schematics available.

I hope this at least helps you find the right battery type.

Ipod died


Hi! Try to reset your ipod by pressing menu and center button for 6 seconds. If still doesn't work then there might be a problem with your battery. If your ipod is under warranty then get it replaced else you can go for battery replacement. This link will prove helpful-

Creative not charging


there seems to be a problem with the batteries for the Zen. I have just sent mine in for warranty work as it will work if you have it plugged into an AC adapter but it won't work as soon as it's unplugged even after charging all night. The USB will not charge it either. Creative has sent a replacement unit, but there is a serious problem with the battery.

Charging ipod


Have you tried connecting your ipod with a different cord? Or maybe a different charger? Also, try to plug it directly into the socket--not a power strip or something like that.

This is an interesting problem.
