Try this which should reset your ipod: First, toggle your hold switch back and forward and put it back to the off position. Then press and hold the menu button and the center button simultaneously for about six seconds and the screen should go blank and the apple logo should appear. After that it should work.

Why isnt my ipod charging?


iPod's battery doesn't charge


Several things could keep your iPod's battery from charging. The major causes are listed below in logical order. Check each one to see if it's what's keeping your battery from charging.


Low-powered USB port

iPods that connect to USB ports require a high-power USB port.

Keyboards and some USB hubs will not charge iPod. Connect iPod directly to the computer or to a USB AC power adapter. Click here for more information.

Connect directly to computer

If you connect iPod to something that connects to the computer (like a USB hub or FireWire drive), connect iPod directly to the USB or

FireWire port on the computer.

FireWire port on a Windows PC

The FireWire (IEEE 1394) ports on some Windows-compatible computers may not be powered, and consequently won't charge iPod when you plug it in. Check here to see if the FireWire port on your PC can charge iPod.

Your computer goes to sleep

Your computer can only charge iPod when it's turned on and not asleep. Make sure your computer is on and not set to go to sleep when you want to charge iPod. Tip:

Some Macintosh computers can charge iPod even though they're asleep.
If your sleeping computer doesn't charge iPod, don't worry, just wake it and let iPod charge.


hope this helps

The battery of my iPod is not charging


<p>When you buy an iPod, the device comes with cables that connect the charging device to the computer. When the iPod battery is low, you can recharge by plugging into your desktop or laptop. But sometimes, when you connect your iPod to your computer, the battery charger. According to Apple's site, some problems may prevent your iPod from charging properly. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Connect your iPod USB charging cable only one USB port on the computer itself. External port devices, such as a USB hub, do not provide enough power to recharge your iPod. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Connect the iPod firewire charging only one firewire port on your computer. Like USB, Firewire ports are not enough of a load to the battery of your iPod. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Disconnect the computer from sleep when the computer set to sleep after a certain time. An iPod can only load on a computer that is connected and not in sleep mode. To enable sleep mode on most computers, you can move the mouse or press the power button once. Hold the power button, which usually turns off the computer. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Turn the iPod off and on when the unit is frozen. A frozen iPod is not charging. If the unit is still frozen when you turn it on again, restart the iPod by pressing the "Hold" switch to "On" and then back to "Off" and press and hold a "Menu" and "Select" buttons simultaneously or " Start "and" Menu "button. Hold the buttons until the Apple logo appears on the screen. <br /> <p><br /> <p>5. Set the system up-to-iPod charger so that when using a Windows 2000 computer. In preparation for the system to load the iPod device to the unit with the charging cable, launch iTunes and "iPod" in the left pane to "Settings" tab to go, check the box next to "Enable Disk use", and click the "Apply" button. Once the configuration is in place, the iPod will charge as normal. <br />

My ipod it showing a message that of : connected


If your ipod is frozen on the screen with this message then you might have disconnected your ipod from computer while it was either syncing or playing.
Anyways, make sure your ipod is not connected with the computer and on the ipod, press and hold the middle and menu button together until you see an apple logo on the ipod's screen.
Let go the buttons when the apple logo appears on the screen. That step reset your ipod and in most cases that fix the issue.
In case you still have the same problem even after that step, then call AppleCare at 1800-275-2273
Hope that answers your question

My screen is on language selection and does not let me scroll or anything i think its frozen.


Hi,

If your iPod is frozen or won't turn on, the steps to reset it vary by model.

  1. Toggle the Hold switch. To do this, slide the switch to Hold (an orange bar appears) and then slide it back (orange bar is hidden).
  2. Reset the iPod by holding down the Menu and Center buttons for 10 seconds.
    • If the Apple logo appears on the display, connect the iPod to a computer and verify that it appears in iTunes and can play music. If the iPod appears in iTunes and can play music, no further troubleshooting is needed.
    • If the Apple logo does not appear or the iPod is not seen in iTunes, connect the iPod to a power source by either plugging it into an Apple iPod USB Power Adapter or directly into a computer's USB port.
  3. Let the iPod charge for at least 20 minutes. Note: If the iPod is connected to a computer, make sure the computer does not sleep, standby, or hibernate during the 20-minute charging period.
  4. After the iPod has charged for at least 20 minutes and while it is still connected to the power source, toggle the Hold switch again as in step 1.
  5. Try resetting the iPod by holding down the Menu and Center buttons for 10 seconds.
    • If the Apple logo appears on the display, connect the iPod to a computer and verify that it appears in iTunes and can play music. If the iPod appears in iTunes and can play music, no further troubleshooting is needed.
    • If the Apple logo does not appear or the iPod is not seen in iTunes, try putting the iPod into disk mode and restoring.
  6. Try putting the iPod into disk mode.
    • While in disk mode, connect the iPod to iTunes and try to restore.
    • If the iPod is still not recognized by iTunes, the iPod should be serviced.
    Hope i helped you.
Thanks.

Its frozen and the buttoms are not working


Please wait for your ipod to discharge all the power it has.it might even take 2-3 days to discharge the power Then after the ipod is completely empty (which means its off and needs to be charged) you can connect it to your computer. Please make sure your computer is scanned from viruses. You can also scan your ipod from viruses. Never unplug your ipod before it completes synchronizing. You dont need to worry! its normal for ipods to behave that ways :)

My Computer and iTunes does not recognize my iPod Touch


Try resetting it while it is connected. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
If you have not already tried, I would also try the other ports on the computer.

Are you running iTunes 8?

And what kind of computer do you have?

Washed comes on when plugged into computer and functions but not when unplugged


You should try resetting the ipod by pressing and holding both the menu and center buttons down until you see an apple appear on the screen or for at least ten seconds. If nothing happens by resetting it without being connected to your computer; I would try restoring it using itunes i've copy and pasted those steps below for you

How to restore iPod (ARTICLE NUMBER HT1339) Ensure that you have an active Internet connection
as new versions of iTunes and iPod Software may
need to be downloaded to your computer. Download and install the latest version of iTunes
if you do not already have it installed. Open iTunes, and then connect your iPod to your
computer using the USB or FireWire cable that came
with your iPod. After a few moments, your iPod will appear in the
Source panel in iTunes. Select your iPod in the Source panel and you will
see information about your iPod appear in the
Summary tab of the main iTunes windows. Click the Restore button. You will be prompted
with one or more restore options that may prompt
iTunes to automatically download the latest iPod
Software. The 4 possible restore options are: Restore Option 1: Restore - Restores with same iPod Software
version already on iPod. Restore Option 2: Use Same Version - Restores with same iPod
Software version already on iPod even though a
newer version is available. Restore Option 3: Use Newest Version - Restores with the latest
iPod Software available. Restore Option 4: Restore and Update - Restores with the latest
iPod Software available. If you are using a Mac, a message will appear
prompting you to enter an administrator’s name and
password. A progress bar will appear on the computer screen
indicating that the first stage of the restore
process has started. When this stage is completed, iTunes will present one of two messages on screen
with instructions specific to the iPod model you
are restoring. Restore Instruction 1: Disconnect iPod and connect
it to iPod Power Adapter (typically applies to
older iPod models). Restore Instruction 2: Leave iPod connected to
computer to complete restore (typically applies
newer iPod models). During the stage 2 of the restore process, the
iPod will show an Apple logo as well as a progress
bar at the bottom of the display. It is critical that the iPod remains connected to
the computer or iPod Power adapter during this
stage. Note: The progress bar may be difficult to see
since the backlight on the iPod display may be
off. After stage 2 of the restore process is complete
and the iPod is connected to the computer, the
iTunes Setup Assistant window will appear asking
you to name your iPod and choose your syncing preferences
similar to when you connected your iPod for the
first time.

If after a reset and restore it still will not work while not connected; I would try putting it in a DRY bowl of rice over night. You may still have moisture in the ipod. Usually rice works pretty good for this issue. Hopefully, the ipod wasn't damaged and this helped you out. Cheers :)

Ipod problems


First and foremost, make sure you have the latest software INSTALLED.

If your iPod is frozen or won't turn on, connect your iPod to your computer, then press and hold the "Menu" and "Select" buttons simultaneously for 10 seconds to reset the iPod. Resetting an iPod will not affect your files or preferences.

If your iPod fails to hold a charge and it's more than a year old, you may need a new battery. If it's under a year old, I would suggest sending it in for repair.
