This is common among the 30gb Video iPods. If you play your iPod on a Dock,
such as a iHome or other speaker device, for some reason, they like to take the
Mainboard out. Normally, if it's a headphone jack, the problem will start with
sound only playing on one side of the Headphones.

As a start, you can replace the headphone jack and see if it corrects your problem.
If not, you will need to replace the mainboard in your iPod.

    Had the same issue! Found this link...http://forums.macnn.com/103/ipod-iphone-... There is a defect that Apple knows about and they will replace your 30gb classic! Read through the link to find the exact steps you need to take. I talked to them on a monday, they gave instructions to send the old one back via UPS, and on Friday, FedEx brought my new one! Even though mine was 3 years old, I got a brand new unit!

My IPOD 30GB is in a frozen mode. Stuck on a song but there is no sound and I cant move forward, increase sound or shut off. The battery is fully charged.


to reset an ipod you flip the hold switch on the back off then hold the middle button and play/pause button at then same time until you see the apple logo. a reset is the only thing you can do besides letting the battery drain. (this happened to me also i suspected a certain song of causing it if it happens again try to recall the song playing) also i would clear the ipods music and re-sync it

My iPod classic (30GB) keeps showing "do not


Try holding down the menu/center button for at least 10-15 seconds, if that does not reset it try the center button and play/pause combo for the same time period (I used to have the same model as you, one of these 2 combos usually worked).

You can also try connecting your ipod to another computer with iTunes on it to see if its a software or hardware problem with your iPod. Or you can uninstall/reinstall iTunes and see what happens after a fresh install

and yea you can let the battery run out overnight if you want, but if you do get to fix it I'd say back up your music on the iPod through a program like iDump or something in the meantime

THE SCREEN LIGHT ON MY CLASSIC 30 GB HAS GONE OUT


Sounds like the backlight of your LCD screen is broken. You can try to replace the LCD screen yourself, the part is available on any auction website. There is an iPod classic Repair service that can fix it for you. There is an iPod classic repair guide that can show you how to do the repair yourself.

Very serious problem with ipod classic plzzz, help me out!!


That is most likely because they are not in the right format for the ipod to play. For the songs, right click on them and click on convert to mp3. Then transfer the mp3 song on there and it should work then. For the videos, you will have to download a free converter for them and let them be converted that way. It should work normally after that.

Plug your Ipod into Itunes. Restore you Ipod to factory settings. Reload you song back into ITunes.

Are you using play lists and is your Ipod set to auto sync?

Try a reset

To reset your iPod:
  • 1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
  • 2. Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 10 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.

Tip:
  • If you are having difficulty resetting your iPod, set it on a flat surface. Make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel, and not near the center.
  • If the above steps did not work, try connecting iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep.
