Re: My ipod stopped working

Yes, it is possible for a battery to die, though 2 or 3 months is a bit short. If you have some way of proving the date of purchase you should be able to take the iPod to an Apple store and talk to one of the "Genius" guys. If it is a battery it should still be covered under warranty. If it isn't covered under warranty, they will be able to get a replacement battery for you which would be cheaper than buying a new one. Hope that helps!

Hey Guys, I left my iPod round my friends house just a day before i went on holiday to the UK for a month and i cant seem to remember my passcode. I have tried heaps of websites, they have great answers...

unfortunately, there is no way to fix this without restoring your iPod. this is for security reasons.

plug the iPod into the computer using the included USB cable. open iTunes. Hold down the home and power buttons at the same time until it shuts down and reboots. (if it doesn't open automatically) in the column on the left side of the window there is an icon showing your iPod's name. click on it then click on the button that says "restore iPod"

WARNING: this will erase all the content on the iPod (you can put it back on later)

it will ask you to confirm. hit "OK" and keep your iPod plugged in as it restores it to it original state. pick the language you prefer and then load your music back on the device.

When I charge my iPod Nano it charges fine but instead of turning off or ... it will turn off but in about 2 seconds it goes to the "Charged"

You need a new battery for your iPod. you can view a free instructional video on battery replacement at the first web address posted below. the second one is a cheap site I found for purchasing iPod parts.

My ipod nano is completly dead

"I figured it out with the help of other peoples problems. I pressed the menue and middle button at the same time for about 8 seconds until the apple came up. It took doing it three times. Works just fine now!"

My ipod middle button doesnt work what can i do help

This usually happens if the membrane of the action button deteriorates and the gold plated contacts between membrane and logic board do no longer establish good contact.
There are specialized online tutorials with iPod Repair instructions that will guide you through the steps of taking it apart and cleaning the contact or replacing the button altogether otherwise you'll have to send it to any third party iPod repair service and they'll replace the membrane for you.
