Re: this ipod wont star or do anything

Have you tried to do a reset? Toggle the hold button on and then off. Then hold down the menu button and the center button at the same time. hold them until the screen flashes. then release. You may have to try this several times.

My Ipod Touch will not do anything. It won't come on or anything.

Step 1: Try connecting your device to a charger, and let it sit there for 15 minutes and it might come back on. Reason : Maybe you forgot to charge it?
Step 2: If this does not work, try connecting your iPod to your computer for 15 minutes. (your iPod might not have been charged, and you might have a faulty wall charger)
Step 3: If this does not work, it may be because you have used your iPod's battery to its fullest extent meaning it no longer holds a charge. If this happens you can either
  1. Go to the Apple Store and if it has been less than 1 year since you purchased it, you can get a free replacement
  2. Go to the Apple Store and ask for them to repair it for a fee and some waiting time.
  3. Go to the Apple Store with the iPod and buy a new one - they will take 10% off the price of your new iPod.

My Ipod Nano Wont Charge on the wall Charger.

Hello Kawase,

I would suggest you try charging the unit this one time by connecting it to the computer. I suspect that the charger may be defective if plugging the wall charger into the iPod has no effect on the low battery warning. If the iPod is able to be charged from the USB port on your computer that would tend to confirm that the charger is not working. If the iPod does not charge when connected to either the computer or the wall charger then you may very well have a another defective iPod.

Best Regards

My apple ipod wont play

It sounds like the battery is fried. That's the same thing that happened to mine. I had to take it to the Apple store, had them look at it, and they actually exchanged it for a refurbished iPod. There's not much you can do at home, unless you want to order a new battery from Apple. I would still recommend having them install it.
