Re: Battery problem

I imagine you're charging via your computer's usb port. If the usb port is not USB2, occasionally you may need to plug it directly to the wall, so that its getting pure clean electricity. If you are charging it via your computer, and it is a laptop, make sure your computer is plugged in as well. if the ipod is less than a year old, it may still be covered by the Apple care warranty. Go to

and enter the ipods serial number ( on the rear at the bottom ) and take advantage of the warranty if you feel it is not performing correctly.

Hope this helps.

Wont turn on after reset

The iPod Touch has a battery capable of up to 40 hours of audio playback, but depending on how you use your iPod, the battery capacity can vary widely. If you attempt to turn your iPod on and get no result, the battery could be fully drained, which you can easily resolve by connecting it to your computer to recharge it. If this doesn't work, resetting or restoring your iPod may get it working once again.

Charge Connect your iPod Touch to your computer using the USB cable that came with it and charge it for at least 10 minutes before attempting to use it again. If the battery is fully drained, the screen may remain blank for a few minutes after plugging it in, and then a low battery image will appear, indicating that you shouldn't unplug it for at least 10 minutes. Never plug your iPod into your keyboard, but rather into the computer itself. Also make sure your computer is on and not in sleep mode while your iPod is charging, or the battery may drain rather than charge. Reset b> If recharging your iPod doesn't resolve the issue, reset it while it remains connected to your computer. Push the "Sleep/Wake" button and the "Home" button simultaneously until the battery symbol or the Apple logo appears. This takes about 10 seconds. Continue to charge your iPod if the low battery image appears after the reset. Restore b> If your iPod Touch still isn't responding, restore it in recovery mode. First, place your iPod in recovery mode by disconnecting it from the USB cable, and then press and hold the "Home" and "Sleep/Wake" buttons simultaneously until the iPod turns off. Push the "Home" button once again, and continue to hold it while you re-connect your iPod to your computer using the USB cable. Continue holding the "Home" button while the iPod turns on and release it only when the "Connect to iTunes" screen appears. Open iTunes, and click "OK" when the recovery mode alert appears. ITunes will restore your iPod back to factory settings. You'll be able to sync it with iTunes to recover the data you lost during the restore, provided you have synced with iTunes in the recent past. Check Liquid Contact Indicators b> All iPods manufactured since 2006 have built-in liquid contact indicators. If your iPod has been in contact with liquid, this could be the source of your problem. You can check whether the liquid contact indicators have been triggered by looking straight down the headphone jack on your iPod. If you see red or pink at the bottom of the headphone jack, your iPod has been in contact with liquid, and this is likely the cause of its malfunction. Contact an authorized Apple repair center to inquire about whether a repair is possible. Such repairs aren't covered under your iPod's warranty. iPod touch: Hardware troubleshooting iOS: Unable to update or restore

How to recharge the Apple iPod Shuffle Silver MP3 Player

According to the manual found here:

"Remove the USB cap and connect iPod shuffle to a high-power USB port on your
computer. The battery status light on the back of iPod shuffle turns on.
The iPod shuffle battery is 80-percent charged in about two hours, and fully charged in
about four hours.
When the battery is charging, the iPod shuffle status light is amber. When the battery is
fully charged, the light is green until you disconnect iPod shuffle. If you don't see the
status light, try another USB port on your computer"

Batteries also wear out from time to time, so if you find that it's not charging no matter what you do, it's likely that you need a new battery. Here's a link to more info on iPod batteries:

How long to charge the ipod to your computer?

Fully charging the battery takes about 4 hours. You can also fast-charge the battery to 80 percent capacity in 1 hour (2 hours for iPod (Click Wheel)). Charging the battery may take longer if you're using iPod as it charges.

My Ipod only works when connected to computer, once i disconnect immediately turns off. whats could be the problem?

When the IPod is connected to the computer, it also charges the battery.
Leave the IPod connected to the computer for several hours so it can charge the IPod's battery.
When you disconnect the IPod after several hours and it still turns off, then the IPod's battery is dead and needs to be replaced.

Apple ipod not getting charged

First, please check your connection (I'm sure you have already done this). Make sure that the cable is plugged in and working on both ends.
If that is fine, I would recommend taking it back and getting a new one. If you just recently purchased it, you should be able to return without a problem. It sounds like you might have a defective product and you don't want to get stuck with it after the return period.
Good news is that when you get the new one, if you use iTunes, it will automatically sync up and you wont have to manually load songs.
Hope this was helpful but if you still have questions, let me know.
Have a great day

IPod won't charge

Firstly check if it will charge from the mains. Then as you already know how to take the back off, check your battery connector on the logic board. Is it loose at all. Sometimes, if this is a loose connection you can get juice to the iPod but not back in the battery. If this is the case, unless you're really good at fiddly soldering I would suggest a new logic board. Otherwise all I can suggest is that you've bought a **** battery.
