Question about Apple iPod MA446LL/A MP3 Player

1 Answer

IPod freezes Hi, I have my iPod sitting in docking station which is connected by usb to digital cable box to charge. Both are connected to whole house audio system which allows me to select at the wall what I want to listen to thru the in room speakers. After playing fine for about an hour the iPod freezes, indicates low battery (despite being charged thru the docking station). I have to disconnect and shut down the iPod and recharge for it to work...should I not have it being constantly charged thru the cable to the cable box?

Every battery has a life span. Li-ion batteries do not have a memory in them like the nickel ones do, but the Li-ion's only can charge up to xxx amount of times.

With that said, your battery is most likely going bad if not already, great way to test it is to run it completely dead.

There are procedures on how to do this involves you opening up the IPOD and and tampering with the insides. I suggest if your not fimilar then to take it to a shop.

Ipod touch will not switch on fully charged left on docking staton all day swiched off with docking station


how many times have you charged it
Ipod batteries have a lifespan so they can only be recharged a certain ammount of times before they need replacing

if it will turn on with a charger either your battery is completely dead or the battery connections are loose or faulty

I have connected my nanomax ipod to the computer and it is not charging.how should i charge it?


Good morning, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time you are viewing this solution post. Thank you for choosing FixYa to solve your problem. So you have connected your Nanomax iPod to the computer and it's not charging like it's supposed to, and you want to know how you should charge it properly? There are two ways you can charge the battery - charging via your Dock Connector to USB Cable, or the Apple USB Power Adapter (which is sold separately). Here are the step by step instructions to charging your and Nanomax.

Using the Dock Connector to USB Cable
  1. Using your Dock Connector to USB Cable, plug the dock connector end to your iPod and plug the USB end to your computer. Make sure the computer you are using has a USB 2.0 port (check your computer's technical specifications to see if it's USB 2.0 certified). Most USB ports on the keyboards of laptops do not provide enough power to perform charging activities. If you have a Docking Station, plug the docking connector into the station and placed the iPod in the station as well.
  2. Make sure your computer is fully awake and not asleep (meaning in sleep mode).
  3. A fully charged battery takes 3 hours to complete. An 80% charged battery takes an hour and 30 minutes. The battery is charging when it shows the charging icon (a battery not fully shaded in green, with a lightning bolt).The battery is done charging when the "fully charged" icon shows (a green-shaded battery with a 2-prong plug showing).
  4. When you are done, disconnect the cable from your computer.
Using the Apple USB Power Adapter
  1. Connect the Alternating Current (AC) Plug Adapter with the power adapter (if connected already, skip this step).
  2. Using your Dock Connector to USB Cable, connect the dock connector end to your iPod and the USB end to the power adapter.
  3. Plug the power adapter into a polarized wall outlet or surge protector outlet.
I think you connected everything correctly, but the USB port on your computer did not have enough power to charge your battery. If that's the case, you will have to find a computer that has a USB 2.0 port on it (like a desktop PC or MAC, or a car adapter charging device) and connect to it, or use the USB Power Adapter (sold seperately). I think this pretty much answers your question. I hope this benefits you the best way possible. Once again, thank you for choosing Fixya as your one-stop solution spot for your problems. Have a good day, evening or night; whatever time you are viewing this, and visit us again the next you need assistance troubleshooting.

Edifier brand docking station works with my ipod nano with auxillary cable but will not work in the docking port - no sound and no charging. Please suggest a solution. Many Thanks Stephen


There might be some issue with the docking ports. Try to connect a different iPod and see if its working, if its not working then there is some problem with the Dock connectors in the docking station.

How do I charge my new iphone 16GB?


Your new iPhone comes with a USB cable and a wall charger in the box. If you don't have a computer, you can plug the wall charger to any socket in your house and connect your iPhone to the wall charger using the USB cable. However, if you have a computer, you can plug the USB cable to any USB slot from your computer and connect it to your iPhone.

You can also charge your device from any iPhone dock, or even those docks attached to your home theater system.

Ipod 4th gen "charging not supported"


It does that to my iPhone; if I want to charge I have to use a separate cable and run the audio into the aux. Defeats the whole purpose of a dock if you ask me, but I guess they never anticipated what they'd have to do to charge the new iPhone batteries back when they designed the pre-G3-phone docks.

Docking station


Hi!

I would suggest that you by-pass any docking stations and connect it directly via usb charger as most ipods do. And also, try to update Itunes and your Ipod Nano software.


Thanks and good luck! =)

Ipod reads: charging not supported


Until recently, iPods could charge by either USB or Firewire. Each has a different power requirement. Many third-party docks and chargers power the dock connect with electricity that meets the Firewire spec, not the USB one. The newer iPods and the iPhone only can charge by USB. Thus if you use a firewire based charger, you get the "not supported" note. I thinkthat's what is happening to you.
