My ipod classic 80gb just comes up with a red cross on the screen when i turn it on, i have tried putting it into manual disc mode but nothing happen.


red cross? I have had unhappy faces on my ipod, but not a red cross. Hmmn, my best bet is that the software is corrupt. Try restoring the iPod and see if that works.

I have a Apple iPod 80gb just got it from a friend and my daughter locked it... but they forgot the password they put on it... what do i do now?


You need to Restore it. Just plug it into the computer you sync it too(it must be that one), open up iTunes and select your iPod in the list to the left, then right under the big picture of your iPod you will see a button that says "Restore," click it. Restoring it will take about 10-15 minutes, but it will take the lock off.

Hope this helps!

MY IPOD CLASSIC 80GB JUST FROZE. HOW TO FIX IT


Is it still on or does it stay frozen off? If it's still on and frozen, simple hold the top button and the home button at the same time and wait until it restarts and the apple logo will appear. Then if it does this again later on when using the iPod, do the same thing and plug it into the computer and do a full restore or upgrade.

Hi

To unlock it you'll need to connect your ipod with the computer you last synced it to and from there open itunes. And, on the front screen of the ipod click on the restore button and your ipod will be restored. You'll now be able to use the ipod as normal, remember that it will delete the menu settings not the data from your ipod.

Please do accept this solution and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

Ipod classic 80gb won't open and charge


  1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
  2. Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.
Tip: If you are having difficulty resetting your iPod, set it on a flat surface. Make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel, and not near the center.
If the above steps did not work, try connecting iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep.

Ipod Classic - 80gb


Just restore it in itunes by going to the ipod's main menu after you plug it in to your computer and press the restore button. It should tell you to back up your information. Do that and click yes. It should be back to normal then.
