Question about Apple iPod MA446LL/A MP3 Player

1 Answer

My husband got home from work and said his ipod was fried. I didn't know what he meant until I felt it. It was SO hot. It finally cooled off, but won't turn on at all now. Is it gone?

    It has completely cooled down. We tried both of those things-no luck at all. No signs of life.

    Thanks for trying!

It might not be.
If the device was nearly filled or was used for continued movie watching it might have simply shut down to avoid further overheating. And as with all electronic devices, direct sunlight is a sure way to overheat your device.

Allow the device to cool down and attempt to reset the ipod (center button and up on the wheel). Hopefully that should fix your problem, as your device probably went into a sort of self-defense mode before totally dying.

You might try to attach it to you computer and see if it begins to charge or shows any signs of change on the screen.

    Unfortunately it sounds like there might be a problem with your battery.

    Depending on how long you've had this iPod the battery may have just worn out, as will eventually happen to all iPods. At that point you can attempt to get a new battery or just buy a new device.

    You can try the first solution here although from what you've said I don't think it will work but it's always worth a shot.

    Sorry I couldn't be of more assistance.

My husband was given a Vesta gas range and on the way home the stove top blew off. He didn't even know it until he got home. We can't read the model number. Any suggestions on how we could find...

without the model number it would be virtuall impossible. Take a picture of the stove and send it to the manufacturer,explain your problem, this might do the trick. You could also ask the person who gave you the stove if they have the manuel for it. You never can tell.

My SC BT100 is perfect until I use the IPOD dock, it works ok for 10mins but then 'blows'. the unit becomes very hot and wont turn back on until it has cooled down.

You are overpowering the Amplifier and it is protecting itself until it cools down.

The reason for this is that the output from the IPOD is already pre-amplified. If it didn't shut down you would either blow the Amplifier or Speakers.

If you keep the volume turned down to a minimum on your IPOD and use the volume control on your theater system you should be OK but still don't turn the theater system to full output.

Please leave feedback.

AC was cooling fine. Now, won't cool room even though cool air comes out. Exhaust hose is extremely hot.

Check filter, if you have a 5000BTU unit (small) and it is extremely hot, then it wont work great for a big room. BTU is the rate of what the AC will put out. 5000 BTU is good for a small single room. 10,000 will cool a bigger room and 18,000 btu is meant to cool a home.

Did you check the incoming water quality, regarding hardness!

If your washing machine supports salt addition technique, fill the appropriate box and fill the salt that is meant for washing machines. Salt works as a softener.

Finally check your rinse aid also for it's fill in the dispenser meant for it

Door frame really hot to touch

Also clean the coils underneath the unit as far as the fan (condenser ) you can put a house fan on the back blowing to cool the compresser until you get a replacement. That fan runs anytime the compresser runs
