Well your battery is probably dead; but i would recommend that you first plug it in and restore it using itunes. If your not familiar with the restore process you will simply plug in the ipod and wait for it to appear in itunes. on the summary page you will look for a restore/update button. After clicking that, follow the on screen instructions. After the ipod reboots and reconnects to the computer, eject it through itunes and charge it until the ipod screen says fully charged. after you see this screen, reset the ipod by pressing both the menu and center buttons at the same time until you see an apple appear on the screen. If none of these steps work you will need to either get a new battery or new ipod. For a new battery you would want to contact apple at 1-800-APL-CARE (1-800-275-2273). Hope this helps :)

How to discharge battery


"Calibrating" a laptop battery is one way to increase the lifespan of a battery that doesn't last long. The procedure involves two steps: fully discharging the battery, then then fully charging it immediately thereafter. It's important to note that a full discharge doesn't mean you drain your battery until your computer powers off, but rather that you deplete it until it reaches a level of approximately 3 percent capacity, according to BatteryCare.com.

1. Charge the laptop battery to 100 percent. Allow the laptop to sit plugged-in and fully-charged for approximately two hours.

2. Click the "Battery" icon in the lower, right corner of the Windows Taskbar and click "More Power Options." Click "Change When the Computer Sleeps," then click "Change Advanced Power Settings."

3. Scroll down to "Battery" and click the "Plus Sign" icon next to it. Click "Critical Battery Level," then click the arrow to decrease the number to "3." Click "Apply," then click "OK."

4. Unplug your laptop and continue using the computer until it reaches 3 percent, at which point it hibernates automatically. Allow the computer to hibernate for at least five hours, then plug it in and allow it to recharge fully.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thank you for using fixya.

Air conditioning cycling on and off to fast, does not seem to know when to shut off, clicking or shut off sound when it wants to shut off but doesn't it keeps running. It is blowing ice cold air.


It sounds to me like the thermostat needs replaced. If what you hear clicking noise but the unit does not shut down that is probably the problem. Thank you.

My ipod has a big x on the screen and i cant do nothig


this is actually a serious problem and there are well 2 causes one is a hd sensor, the 2nd is the hard drive has actually lost its place for better terms.
The first fix is simple and takes alot of time. But basically what happens is the lens on the inside of the hard drive skipped a beat from either being dropped or unplugged in the middle of transfering. If you were to take it into apple they wouldn't fix it under warranty or take it in return cause they consider it from being dropped. An it will cost you more then the units worth to get it repaired from most places..
first you can basically let the battery die. Let it sit with the red x until you cant get it to turn on anymore. You have to essentially discharge the battery. Leave it discharged overnight. Once the battery is fully discharged you need to allow it to fully charge. Once it fully charges it may come back and start working this only works on about 30% of iPod classic units. In some cases i have seen people just able to plug it in and let it charge for 4-6 hours and it will start working. but if, when you try to charge the iPod it shuts off after 5 minutes, your gonna have to let the iPod discharge.

Ok so now if that didnt work and you have discharged the ipod and recharged it there is only one fix left that many people have done and swear by. I myself had to use this on 100s of ipod classics and it works.
Reset your ipod by holding the middle and menu button until you hear clicking or immediately when you see the apple icon. then with one hand hold the ipod firmly and hit the side of it onto the palmof your other hand. I mean you really have to smack the iPod as soon as you hear that clicking or you see the apple icon. Sometimes this jumps the needle back into place but not all the time and may take a few times to try. Some times it takes 50 smacks to get it to work but it does work. I have known people who couldn't smack it hard enough so theyd hit it on a counter or table top, but dont do that the first 10 try's. Use this only as a last resort to the discharge/recharge fix.

heres a video that outlines the same thing in words. Just follow it step by step and it will work. Only down side is it
doesnt show it being done. Now if it took smacking your ipod to work when it comes back it should have all of your music. But in 10% of the cases it may not have all of the data left on it and it will ask you to repair or reformat. You will most likely have to reformat and lose your contents so i hope you have your library backed up but as i said thats only 10% of the time.
If you need further assistance please feel free to follow up with a comment and i will be here to assist you. If this assisted you please feel free to rate the solution. thanks and have a great day.

My ipod says www.apple.com/support/ipod WHEN TRY TO CHARGE MY IPOD, IT BEGANS TO CHARGE AND STOPS AFTER A LITTLE WHILE.


Guys, if you have the ipod photo, I used to get the hard drive locking up , which would bring up the www.apple.com/support/ipod screen.

WHen you try to start it up, put the ipod to your ear and listen to hear if the hard drive is stuck-ie if you can hear the drive repeating a clicking noise, then it is stuck.

If it does this, hit the ipod with an open hand (like a slap). No joke. This is for real. Slap it a couple of times and then try to restart it. If it doens't work the first time, try it again. SOmetimes it works first go, sometimes it takes a few, but eventually it does work.
It seems like the hardware inside is stuck for some reason and slapping it fixes the problem.

My ipod has locked up about 5 or 6 times and each time it has worked for me.

Give it a go. Don't pay apple to get it fixed. They probably do the same thing and charge you hundreds for it.

Good luck!
