To trouble shoot this issue you will need a computer with internet and the latest version of itunes.

First you will want to put the ipod into disc mode
Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Set it to Hold, then turn it off again.) Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for at least 6 seconds until the Apple logo appears. When the Apple logo appears, release the Menu and Select buttons and immediately press and hold the Select and the Play/Pause buttons until the Disk Mode screen appears.


After you get the ipod into disc mode you will need to restore it. to do this follow these instructions....
connect the ipod to the computer After a few moments, your iPod will appear in the Source panel in iTunes. Select your iPod in the Source panel and you will see information about your iPod appear in the Summary tab of the main iTunes windows. Click the Restore button. You will be prompted with one or more restore options that may prompt iTunes to automatically download the latest iPod Software. The 4 possible restore options are: Restore Option 1: Restore - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod. Restore Option 2: Use Same Version - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod even though a newer version is available. Restore Option 3: Use Newest Version - Restores with the latest iPod Software available. Restore Option 4: Restore and Update - Restores with the latest iPod Software available. If you are using a Mac, a message will appear prompting you to enter an administrator’s name and password. A progress bar will appear on the computer screen indicating that the first stage of the restore process has started. When this stage is completed, iTunes will present one of two messages on screen with instructions specific to the iPod model you are restoring. Restore Instruction 1: Disconnect iPod and connect it to iPod Power Adapter (typically applies to older iPod models). Restore Instruction 2: Leave iPod connected to computer to complete restore (typically applies newer iPod models). During the stage 2 of the restore process, the iPod will show an Apple logo as well as a progress bar at the bottom of the display. It is critical that the iPod remains connected to the computer or iPod Power adapter during this stage. Note: The progress bar may be difficult to see since the backlight on the iPod display may be off. After stage 2 of the restore process is complete and the iPod is connected to the computer, the iTunes Setup Assistant window will appear asking you to name your iPod and choose your syncing preferences similar to when you connected your iPod for the first time.

If this still fails you either will want to send it in to your choice of repairs centers; or just buy a new one.

My apple ipod touch 64G wont charge


If you've tried without success to charge your iPod touch with a wall charger and by connecting it to computer with a ipod cable, and you've ruled out that the cable is functioning properly, contact Apple Support or go to an Apple Store for assistance. Launch your Web browser and navigate to support.apple.com to see various options for online and phone support, as well as to locate the nearest Apple Store.

Ipod wnt charge


Is the iPod's battery so low that it can't communicate with the computer? And what do you want to charge the iPod with? A wall-socket or with the USB If you have access to a wall charger, try to use that one. You could also ask a friend with an iPod if you can charge it in their charger. I had once that my batteries were so low it showed the "Connect to Power" screen and shut off due to inactivity, also if I tried to charge it in a dock. I tried to use another dock linked to an amplifier and it turned on immediately. Furthermore, what generation iPod are you using?

I reset the my ipod just like the apple web site said. Then it showed a power cord going 2 an outlet from the wall. So i plugged it in the wall. It still showed it. Then I pressed the menu and center...


You must have a 3rd or 4th gen Ipod. It should not do this with a reset. If you reformat it through Itune , then it will. The plug into a power outlet means it is trying to reformat. If it will not, your hard drive is corupted or logic board. If it is the hard drive and you can get it to show on your computer, you can go to your disc utilities and erase the hard drive by writing zeros. then connect to Itunes and reformate. Plug into a power wall charger and it should complete. You need a good charge in your battery. If your battery is not charging or needs to charge , that will stop it from completing a reformat. I hope this helps.

I pod problems


Hi
I think your battery may be going bad or you need to purchase a wall charger to fully charge your battery. Charging your iPod on your computer works fine for a while, but as the battery gets older, it needs more charging and often it doesn't get enough from the computer. Try a wall charger first. Charge it all the way up until it stops charging. If it still shows a low battery you need to have a new battery. There are a lot of places that can do it. Hope that helps.

Ipod won't charge, won't show up in itunes.


The same thing happened to me. I suggest getting a wall charger? And if your iPod won't show up on iTunes but you want to add songs and stuff, just keep trying.

Apple ipod not getting charged


What type of IPod is this? Also what type of charger are you using? If the ipod does not have a charge at all you will need to plug it into a wall charger for it to get a "Base charge" (this usually takes 5-10 minutes) as if the ipod is totally dead then there is not enough of a charge for the ipod to let your computer know it is there to start being charged. After it has the base charge you can use the usb connection to finish the charge or leave it plugged into the wall charger to finish getting the charge.
