Question about Apple iPod nano 2nd Generation MP3 Player
I didn't undock my ipod nano from my laptop properly a few times....(space case).
Now, when I try to shut it down, it shuts down for a second and then shows the "Charged" message permanently. This means the power is still on and so it dies after about 24 hours.
I've restored through itunes 126.96.36.199 three times but that doesn't work.
Someone on the apple community said an earlier version of itunes might work - haven't tried that yet.
I wonder if buying a new battery would help the problem? Apple said it would charge $95 to repair it and that's pretty steep.
You may want to try an earlier version of the firmware. You can actually download the older firmware for that one from Apple and in iTunes hold the shift key before you click restore. That will allow you to select the file of the firmware version you want instead of the newest version it defaults to. You won't have to reinstall an older version of iTunes that way.
If it doesn't turn off when you pause it you can also press and hold the play pause button after it is paused to force a power down. I doubt that it us a battery issue and replacing it won't help. If you do decide to replace the battery you can get a battery from various web sites for 10-30 dollars that come with the opener tool and you can replace it yourself for cheap.
Cheers and best wishes.
