Don't just change the hard drive,Change the motorboard as well.Different generation ipods use different boards and the hard drive from one won't always just plug in and work.

My ipod 30gb shows its sick face on start up help


This is generally caused by a hardware failure. If it's under warranty, send it back to Apple. Otherwise, you need to start looking at replacing the hardware. If the screen shows a sad face, then you can assume the screen and battery are probably OK. So, the problem is probably with the hard drive or the logic board.

I have been told this is because the speaker wires are pushing against the laser motors. How can I fix this?

30GB Ipod video won't turn on


N1amh, your problem could be battery related or could be other problems. Apple's website has a good checklist for troubleshooting power source problems (may be a faulty USB port or cable). In brief, if you have other USB ports, powered hubs, or speaker-charger options, try these and see if you get the 'pod to charge. If it seems to charge, but then quickly drains and you get a series of rapid beeps and then the low battery message, it *could* be a sign that the hard drive needs replacement. (This isn't a definite diagnostic). The website ifixit.com has good do-it-yourself instructions for replacing batteries, etc. and can also sell you tools and parts. I've replaced the battery, screen and headphone jack on my daughter's 30gig video ipod, at different times, and it's do-able, though it's awfully easy to break one or more of the plastic closure tabs each time you open up the case. If you need to replace the hard drive, I read on another site that you can get decent drives for around $30 new on ebay. Best of luck!

Sad face icon


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.
