160 gb ipod classic won't recharge with the wall charger

I haven't tried recharging it on the computer but am assuming the problem lies with the ipod. Any help is much appreciated--I would hate to go to the trouble of replacing the battery only to find it doesn't fix the problem.

Try charging it on the computer or with a different wall charger. The fault may lie in the charger brick. I have seen it happen many times that the wall charger quits working but it still charges on the computer.

Cheers

Will not charge or turn on


Plug your Ipod into your computer. Hold down both the Menu Button (on/off button) and the center button( just below the screen) for 15-30 seconds. You should see the Apple sign after that time. Mine died and was revived this way.

How do I charge my iPod touch for the First Time


<p>Apple iPod touch is a personal audio player with the ability to store and play MP3 files, digital video and downloadable games and applications. The unit is powered by a rechargeable battery. When charging the battery for the first time, ensure that the battery is fully charged. From there you can turn it on or removing the device from the charger, if desired, regardless of battery level. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Enter the main connection for the iPod cable to the socket at the bottom of the iPod touch. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Insert the small plug into a USB port on your computer. Turn on the computer.

Battery on my Ipod classic completely died and now wont work


The first thing to try is an ipod reset. Here are the instructions from apple on how to do this: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1320

If the battery is truly dead, they are pretty easy to replace. Same with the hard drive. Batteries go for about $8 including shipping on ebay, and in most cases come with instructions on replacing. One word of caution, when you pry the 2 halves of your ipod apart, there is a small ribbon cable on the top side. Try not to damage that :D

My ipod won't charge. keeps saying "please wait. very low battery" what's wrong with it?


I had the same problem. Went to the Apple store and the technician said that the IPOD battery ran down to low (battery level showed red) and the USB port on the computer was not strong enough to recharge it. He used a rechargeable adapter that pluged directly into the wall (adapter cost about $30) and recharged it enough for me to take it home and recharge it on my computer.He said to never let the battery level drop below 5% unless you are going to recharge it using the adapter that pluged into the wall. I bought an IPOD rechargeable travel kit from Target for $20 and used it to recharge my IPOD. My IPOD works fine now. The Technician also said at some point the battery will need to be replaced (in a year or two depends). Will cost about $59 to replace it (don't quote me on the timeframe or price of replacement, this may have been just for my IPOD but thought this would be useful info for someone.

Ipod ''dead''


Plug your iPod into a wall charger, let it lie for a couple of hours. When these batteries become completely flat, it won't easily charge through computer usb, so try the wall charger, see if it works.

Usb recharging does not work


I have seen this many times. Your battery is most likely depleted to the point that it is incapable of sending a signal to the computer. You will more than likely need to have you battery replaced. You can jump start your iPod with a wall charger, but you lost yours. A simple charger can be bought off of eBay for less than ten dollars. If you get a wall charger and nothing happens, your iPod is dead but it sounds like a battery issue.
