    My friend's ipod video 80GB wont turn on. It stays at a black turned off screen and does nothing. The error started when he plugged it to his computer to charge and suddenly turned off and did not respond. When the ipod is plugged into a Wii console to charge you can hear a repetitive clicking noise. Trying to reset it does not work, switching the hold lock does not work, or even attempting to charge it on any docking system. It is completely unresponsive.

Ok what i would sugest is leaving it for a little while and see if it repairs it self if not the on switch just flick it up really quickly try that a few times hold it and then leave it and then flick it up quickly that worked for me so it sould work for you.

My ipod touch wont play music on my docking station it used to it still charges it help


I had this problem too. You're going to have to restore it with iTunes.
  1. Plug your iPod into your computer and sync it with iTunes.
  2. Go to the "Summary" tab and choose restore.
  3. Let iTunes do its thing and try it on you dock again.
If that doesn't work then I would suggest taking it on and off of the docking station until it works. I know this sounds really primitive but this is what I ended up doing and now it works fine.
One last thing, if you recently upgraded your iPod's firmware then that might be what is messing you up. Sometimes docks aren't compatible with the newer firmware Apple puts out so you might have to buy a new dock unfortunately. But if your iPod was jailbroken on a past firmware you can use this video to downgrade it to when it worked with your dock.

Ipod nano buttons refuse to work when not connected to a stereo


please try resetting your ipod (hold the center and play buttons for a while), or restoring it on iTunes.

maybe the iPod is 'messed up' and 'thinks' it's buttons are the docking station ones, not itself's

Ihome won't play ipod, even after resetting ipod I have de same problem. I got an itouch 2nd generation and docked it on a speaker that supports it. It worked fine for two or three hours, but suddenly it...


Welcome to the wonderful world of the iHome frying the Ipod.
Your iHome, has most likely fried the mainboard on your ipod.
to check plug a usb into the ipod and connect to the computer.
if it comes up disconnect the usb and try a headphones in the jack.
if it doesn;t play sound its fried and you will need a new mainboard.
if it does play through the headphone jack, your lucky and keep it off the dock.

I have fixed at least 30 ipods taken out by ihome docks and other docks.
they are terrible for the ipod. Even Apple sells the docks on their website
that shows how much they care about the product.

If this helps leave a vote on fixya

Wont play through my bose system anymore


the apple ipod are very delicate and it seems that docks are very harsh on the internal workings IE: motherboard of the ipod. it not just the touch, it's all ipods.
My suggestion is to check the headphone jack and if you get sound, don;t play your ipod on the dock at all. Your dock has probably done some damage to the audio circuit on the board.
If you get sound through the headphone jack save your ipods life and just use it through the jack.
I have replaced numerous motherboards on ipods played on docks. they just don;t handle the charging and playing very well whether it's heat or just the wrong voltage I am not sure.
But my first question to a customer is have you played it on a dock.
I would stay away from the dock

IPod not working in my music dock


Hi Natalie
Sounds like you're having logic board troubles. You need to take it to an ipod repair specialist to take a look at it. Sorry to bring the bad news. Chances are it's not a simple repair and will need a new logic board and they're not cheap:

If it's still less than a year old take it back to an apple store asap for a free replacement.

All the best

The new ipod nano


How old is it? if it's under warranty apple may fix it.
Simply, if you charge your iPod through you computer then the battery could be damaged. USB ports only put out 5 volts. If you have an AC charger that puts out 9.5 volts then consider charging it with that. Some AC adapters only put out 5 volts for the purpose matching the USB standard, but it's not good for the ipod.

Ipod nano blinks


I bought an Ipod shuffle 2nd generation yesterday, it charged all night and orange light was still blinking. Tried listening to songs and sometimes it would play but most times wouldn't. Took it back for exchange and same problem. Then I realized the problem is not with the USB plug or computer reoconizing ipod but in the docking itself. I applied pressure on the top side of docked Ipod and bottom of docking station and the computer recognized the Ipod. Release pressure and lose connection. The problem is that the docking station and earbuds do not connect with ipod and the fixes provided by apple doesn't address or fix this problem.
