Re: The new Battery does not hold charge.

If you charge it directly from the wall you may have a peak or an excesive charge due to a cheap charger or a defective one that may cause a short to a diode or resistor inside your ipod taking all the charge from the battery, Apple may charge you more than a new one is worth. But if you want to use it only for the car or the office you can keep it connected or into one of those nice sound sistems for Ipod is good, at least you wont have to throw it on the garbage. Next time try to use a sourge protector for all your electonics their inexpensive and they can save you a lot of money.

There is no sound or display on the screen when it is power on

The Apple iPod uses a rechargeable, lithium-based battery that can go between 10 and 36 hours between charges, depending on the model. You can charge your iPod using either an electrical outlet or your computer's USB port, but if you find that your iPod no longer takes or maintains a charge despite having the right connections, you should try some basic troubleshooting methods to restore the device's battery life.

Connect your iPod to a different USB port or wall outlet. If you use a USB port to charge your iPod, you may simply have a low-powered port, according to Apple. You can often resolve this by switching the cable to a different port, or using a wall charger (sold separately) to recharge instead. Charge your iPod for several hours. If you find your iPod completely unresponsive even as it charges, leave it plugged in for three or four hours and check again. If your battery life has been depleted completely, the iPod will need time before it can begin functioning again. Restart your iPod. A frozen or dysfunctional iPod may fail to charge, but a quick reset can fix basic functionality glitches. To reset a touch-wheel iPod, hold down the "Select" and "Menu" buttons until the gray Apple emblem appears on the screen. For iPod Touch, hold down the "Sleep" and "Home" buttons (the only two buttons on the device). Connect your iPod to your PC using the provided USB cable, open the iTunes software and click the "iPod" tab in the left column. Then click the "Update" button to search for and install the latest iPod software. Apple recommends keeping your software up-to-date to ensure that your battery life remains fully optimized. Purchase a new battery from Apple. If your battery fails to charge despite all your troubleshooting efforts, it may simply be too old and depleted to continue functioning. By taking advantage of Apple's iPod Out-of-Warranty Battery Replacement Program (see Link Below), you can send in your iPod and receive a replacement battery or replacement iPod for a modest fee.

How long to charge a new ipod touch

Just charge it until the battery indicator indicates that the battery is full. If you want to make sure you properly condition your new battery, charge it for 12-16 hours, even if full. But usually, charging until full is sufficient, and should not take more than 6 hours if new.

My ipod wont hold a charge. It keeps going out

How are you charging it?, if your charging it on the computer it slowly decreases the batery life everytime you charge it ( as in it last for 5 hours to 4 and a half) so i suggest you start using a wall charger in future :)

I have an apple ipod 80 GB black. the problem is with the battery charge is showing that it is full charge when it is me out of this problem.

Try resetting your ipod:
  1. Push the hold switch to hold and then set it back to unlock.
  2. Press the Menu and Select buttons same time and hold for at least 6 to 15 seconds.
  3. Release the buttons when Apple logo shows.
If this does not work you might have a faulty battery and the only way to fix that is so buy a new ipod

New iPod touch does not fully charge

Hi there,
To fully charge takes about 4hrs. The first 2hrs are a fast charge bringing it to about 80%. The following 2hrs are a trickle charge to bring it to as near to 100% as it can get. It is possible that the iPod hasn't yet calculated what 'Full Charge' is yet based on your devices installed battery. Give it a few days. If it still does this after a few charges and near complete discharges then do a reset. to do this, while it is on press and hold the Menu and Standby/Power buttons for about 10 seconds until the Apple symbol appears. This should get it to do a self test which will re-analyse the battery.

All the best

Hold down on the center button while hold down on the menu button. The apple logo will appear. Your Ipod is now rebooted.

Is the new battery fully charged? Usually it takes 6 hours on a new battery.

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.
