Question about Apple iPod nano

2 Answers

Ipod won't work unless plugged in to computer or mains

I bought an ipod nano 4gb from somebody over the internet who advertised it as being brand new, but once I received it I attempted to switch it on but it wouldn't turn on so I assumed that it need charging which I did via my computer. Once it was fully charged I connected to itunes and put my songs on it, they all played ok. When I disconnected from the computer it wouldn't switch back on so I now have to listen to it whilst either plugged in to mains or computer.
Please can you help me.
Thank you
Alison

Alison65,

good day, the only possible cause why your player can only power up using it's own charger or through pc connection is:

1) The connection of the rechargeable battery inside the player is loose or out of contact

2) The rechargeable battery itself is faulty
3) The connection from the charging line is loose or out of contact

most likely your problem is within the internal of the unit.

cheers,
mark

1. Plug the iPod into the primary computer linked to that iPod, the first computer you synchronized it with unless you have designated another computer as the primary computer.
2. Open iTunes and sync the iPod as normal.
3. Remove the iPod, following the normal removal procedure. The iPod unlocks automatically as you remove it.

Apple screen


Connect the ipod to your computer and let it sit for about fifteen minutes. Then it should show up in your computer and under itunes. Usually, if your ipod dies completely, when you try to charge it using a wall or car charger, it will do that, just flashing the apple logo and going back off. Leaving it plugged up to the computer will allow the battery to charge normally, just enough so that it can come on and sync with itunes. While it is plugged into the computer and charging, it should say something like, battery very low, wait few minutes, charging. It should work after letting it sit plugged up to the computer.

If you install the itunes version 7.5 that you downloaded, you wont lose your music library. It is a separate file from the programs installation files. You don't need to uninstall the previous version, the new one will install on top of it.
