Sad Ipod sign and B&W charging battery sign....

My 60gb Ipod video does not appear on my computer. When I charge it, it shows a B&W battery for sometime then the black screen with the apple logo. After that it shows the dreadfull sad ipod sign for a few seconds then turns off. It repeats this continuesly. I've tried reseting it a couple of times and it appeared on the computer once (for several seconds). Is it posible that something is loose? Or an easy way to fix it?

    Don't think that it is a loose cable or your hard drive. Have you tried it on another computer? They problem may be with the ipd itself.

I would suggest uninstalling everything that had to do with you ipod off your computer (itunes, drivers, etc. and then reinstalling them. My friend was having a similar problem and this is what I told him to do and it worked for him. Hope this helps.

My ipod does nothing just shows a sad face


The "sad" iPod icon usually indicated that the iPod is having trouble connecting with a computer. This is, in most cases, not a serious issue and can be resolved with a few easy procedures. In most cases the data on the iPod is intact, even if the sad icon was displayed.

Verify the iPod has a charge. If in doubt, allow it to charge for 30 to 60 minutes. Do not remove charging cable. Toggle the Hold switch to the Hold position and back. Then press both the center (Select) button and the Menu (upper part of wheel) for up to 10 seconds. Release the Select and Menu buttons when the Apple logo appears, and quickly simultaneously press the Select and Play/Pause (bottom of the wheel) button. Switch from the electrical plug to a computer connection (if necessary) when the Disk Mode screen appears. The screen should change to the normal "Do Not Disconnect" update screen. Contact Apple about finding a repair service if the iPod will not go into Disk Mode.

Flashing icons while charging... am I really charging?


If the iPod is showing the "Sad iPod face" icon, this means that the hard drive inside the iPod (located on the logic/circuit board) has died/failed and needs to be replaced. If you plan on replacing this part, you may also need to purchase and solder a new battery to the iPod logic board if you were to do it yourself.

Hold down on the center button while hold down on the menu button. The apple logo will appear. Your Ipod is now rebooted.

Is the new battery fully charged? Usually it takes 6 hours on a new battery.
