Ipod nano won't charge or turn on

My ipod nano is 2 years old and was used very little. It has been sitting unused for over a year and now it won't turn on or charge. I plugged it in over night directly to my ibook and it still won't turn on. I tried the move to hold(button on top) and press menu and center button for 6 seconds....still nothing.

It will not charge up.


Recharageable should not be stored in a discharged state.
If the recharageable battery is more than 3 - 4 years old then the battery could be worn out.Rechargeable batteries have a finite number of charge and discharge cycles andwill lose their charge capacity over time, i.e. won't charge to 100% andgradually the charge reduces until the battery won't charge up at all. OR Thebattery shows a 100% charge but when the adapter is disconnected the batterydrops off to zero capacity in a very short time. If the battery drops to anunacceptable charge level then the battery needs to be replaced.

Hi there,

You may need to reset your ipod using the following steps:

1. Slide the "Hold" switch to "hold" and then turn it off again.

2. Press and hold the Menu and Select or Center buttons for like 8-10 seconds until the Apple logo appears.

That's it! Please let me know how this goes. Thanks for using FixYa.

If you left it sitting in the box "for a few years"...then that's why.
The battery has to be used to stimulate the "memory" of the battery. If it was charged once and never used again, then of course it is going to have a battery issue.

Ipod+washer=not good.


It is possible that you damaged only the part that takes a charge, so you may have a much less portable iPod. If it had just happened and you let it sit in some dry white rice, that absorbs the moisture and will occasionally solve some problems. At this point though, I'd say that it's probably shot...
