Question about Apple iPod MA446LL/A MP3 Player

1 Answer


I bought a faulty Ipod Video 5G, with the fault that shows the support web address. Some people say it was because of the 1.2FW Update. I can't get it into boot disk mode. Is the Firmwear on the main board our is it on the hard drive as i thought if i bought a ZIF external case and replase the firmwear (if thats where it is) with the earlyer version. Do you think this would work or is the harddrive faulty. Also the ipod is saying battery very low all the time , so i thought it might be the battery. Some one told me im better getting an AC charger to charge it then try to boot disk it. ANY IDEAS ?

I've got black horizontal lines on my i pod..can you help?

What has happened is the LCD screen on the iPod broke in those places. Its just like breaking a computer screen it doesn't break all of it just parts of it. Here is how to fix it but it will cost a few bucks.
This is the screen for the iPod Video
This is how to take apart the iPod and replace the screen.

Welcome to Fixya

Looks like the software just hanged-up on you. Try to reset the Ipod by following the procedures below.

1st option:
Turn the Hold switch on, then back to off.
Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for 10 seconds (until the Apple logo appears).
You may need to repeat the reset several times.
If the reset doesn't help, then put the iPod into forced disk mode.

2nd option (Disk Mode):
Plug the iPod into a high-powered USB port, let it sit for 2 hours, then disconnect it. If you have a wall charger, plug in the iPod, then follow these steps while it is still plugged in.
Turn the Hold switch on, then back to off.
Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons until the Apple logo appears
Immediately switch your figures to press and hold the Select and the Play/Pause buttons until "Disk Mode" appears at the top.
For a lot of people, this solves the problem. Connect the iPod to the computer and (assuming it shows up) reset the iPod again to get it out of Disk Mode. If at this point you still have the white screen, restore the iPod using the restore function in iTunes under the Summary tab (this will erase everything on the iPod and put it at factory settings).
Note: Do not disconnect or eject the iPod until the store is totally done. After you think it's done, wait another five minutes.

Have a good day!

    I cant get a tv show on my ipod nano 4th gen

    Not all iTunes video can be transferred to iPod, please make sure your video is compatible with iPod. If the video resolution or video bitrate beyond iPod limitation, even though they are mp4 video, you can't upload them to iPod. For example, some iTunes purchased movie are High definition movie, the resolution is too high to play on iPod, you can't sync it to your iPod. For more information about iPod compatible video, you can visit apple official website.
    Or you may take a look at this step by step direction, it's about how to convert and put video to iPod, it works pretty well for me.
    Hope it helps. Contact me if you need further assistance.

    How to put a video on my 80 Gb ipod using mp3 rocket

    You need a third party software to convert the video to the format which support by iPod.
    Here I find a Video Conversion Software which could convert between all popular Video formats ( AVI, MKV, MP4, WMV, FLV, MPEG etc.) that support all popular portable media players (such as Zune/Zune HD, iPod/iPhone and PSP) and the latest iPod Nano 5G, iPod Touch 3, iPhone 3GS/OS 3.1.

    Ipod wont charge

    Hey, I had this problem last year with my ipod mini. Unfortunately mine was out of its guarantee which meant Apple would not fix it for me - even though it was there fault as it had a faulty logic board! So as no-one would fix it for me in Ireland, I sent it to England.Their web address is They are situated in Brighton. It cost me £90, but it was well worth it, and I had it back within a week.
