Question about Apple iPod classic MP3 Player

1 Answer

My ipod only works when It's pugged into the ac adapter.

I spilled diet dr. pepper on my iPod classic and now it only works when it is plugged into the ac adapter into my wall. When I plug it into the computer, it starts spazzing out and will not go to my music, just the apple when it turns on. However, when it is plugged into the wall, it says it is completely charged and works perfectly. The click wheel still works and so does the screen. As soon as i unplug it, the screen disappears in lines and finally fades out altogether. Is there anything I can do or is there any way someone can repair it?

My ipod doe not have sound and a popup says generic volume cannot be stopped


Follow these steps to reset an iPod Classic, or in fact any iPod with a Click Wheel.

Make sure the iPod Classic isn't simply paused or locked.
Check the screen for a lock symbol.
If you see a lock, unlock the Hold switch.
You should be back in business.
Put the iPod on a flat surface to stabilize it.
Slide the Hold switch on, then slide it off.
Hold down Select and Menu together for several seconds with two fingers.
Make sure your finger isn't touching the Click Wheel.
When the Apple logo appears, release Select and Menu.
If the iPod Classic doesn't reset, repeat the above step.
If that still doesn't get your iPod Classic to restart, plug the iPod into a power adapter or a computer and see if it starts up.

How do I re charge battery with electrical plug


To charge the battery using your computer:
Connect iPod shuffle to a high-power USB port on your computer using the included iPod shuffle Dock. The computer must be turned on and not in sleep mode (some models of Macintosh can charge iPod shuffle while in sleep mode). When the battery is charging, the status light on iPod shuffle is orange. When the battery is fully charged, the status light turns green.
If you don't see the status light, iPod shuffle might not be connected to a high-power USB port. Try another USB port on your computer.

To charge the battery using an iPod USB Power Adapter If you do not have then you have to buy the same from Apple Store) 1 Connect the AC plug adapter to the power adapter (they might already be connected). 2 Plug the USB connector of the iPod shuffle Dock into the power adapter. 3 Plug the power adapter into a working electrical outlet. 4 Put iPod shuffle in the dock. You can disconnect and use iPod shuffle before it is fully charged.

I have an ipod classic 160 gig but keep gettin the error code 1439 wen i try to restore what should i do?


Hi, now, when you restored your 80 gB classic, did you upgrade the firmware to 1.1.2?
If so, do not.
I refuse as my firmware 1.1.1 works the ipod great and the only trouble started (twice) on trying to update the firmware.
Try a hard factory reset:support.apple.com/kb/HT1339

Then, charge fully with AC charger (this was recommended to me twice in an Apple store)

After wards, use USB to connect to your computer and do not allow it to upgrade to 1.1.2

(See incidental article about ipod touch: rupertgee.wordpress.com/2007/12/02/downgraderestore-ipod-touch-firmware-to-version-111-using-os-x/ this might even work on ipod classic - you've got nothing to loose); also have a look at Apple's updates: apple.com/support/downloads/

This seemed to work for me:

1. Download latest version of iTunes
2. disconnect from internet (I did this by removing my wireless adapter).
3. Put iPod into disk mode (hold select and play until display says "disk mode" at the top).
4. Connect iPod to computer
5. You should be prompted to restore, click yes.
6. Message will appear saying can't connect to internet, do you want to restore to latest version "2.0.1" instead? (Something along those lines).
7. It should start restoring and work this time.

Hope this helps.
