Question about Apple iPod nano

1 Answer

My silver ipod nano died a few days ago and I haven't not been able to charge it. I forget it was dead, and I tried to turn it on, but it started making a ticking noise (I guess the only way to describe it was like a bomb), and nothing showed up on the screen. I remembered it was dead obviously, but I've never heard it make that noise before. Anyone know what it is?

It was most likely the hard drive trying to turn on. Sometimes people can even feel the vibrations of the hard drive spinning in the iPod. The only iPod that has flash memory anymore is the iPod shuffle. I would recommend connecting your iPod to power then attempting to reset it after ten minutes of charge. (without disconnecting the simultaneously press and hold the menu and center buttons until the apple icon appears or for at least ten seconds. If this does not work wait about a half hour more and reattempt the reset process. If you cannot get the iPod to turn on while connected to power you most likely will need a new hard drive. Did the unit take any falls at all? Check out www.rapidrepair.com for full instructions on replacing your battery and or hard drive and step by step guides for iPod issues. It's not my sight, I just found it to be very helpful in my own needs

Try charging it using an A/C wall adapter. Sometimes the USB does not have enough power for a very dead ipod.

Ipod nano green Help!!!


Hello,

Try going to repair your iPod at apple.
I don't think they will accept it because it is a old version.
You can try. Or maybe your iPod hated you and wanted to die at the next day the warranty expires. (little joke there haha ^_^)

Hope this helps!
