Re: my ipod has a 20 min. battery life

It depends on how often you have let the iPod charge run down to 0%

After a while (1-2 years), the rechargeable battery loses its ability to hold a good charge. You can order a replacement from any online specialty electronics store.

My iPod touch 5th gen's battery dies out pretty quick. Ex. I fully charge it and I start a game and in like 5-10 mins it say 20% what's causing this?

Batteries don't last forever, yours is obviously at the end of its life, the only way to fix this is to replace it.

Ipod Nano 5th Gen. 3 months old and died--won't restore either.

Hi there,

A possible problem with the battery. Battery life depends on how you frequently used the devised and how you handled the proper cycle to charged and drained the battery.

Battery charging should complete it's charging hours and you have to properly fully drained the battery at least once a week, this will make the battery life go longer.

Initially try to plug and connect the Ipod into your computer and see to it that it was turning ON, or it was giving any sign that it was responding when you connect it to the computer.

Is there any incidents happen that you got a problem on charging the unit, or any like incidents like power outage on the area or a short circuit on the device charger?

Let me know here again for further instruction and clarification.

My Ipod froze

You can usually reset a frozen iPod by holding down the menu and center buttons for about 10 seconds. Hope this helps!

My Ipod nano is frozen--wont shut off just shows it as playing a song but its not playing

the easiest work around for this one is to let the battery be drained, like leave it on until the battery dies, then leave it off no power over night, then after that charge the unit once again, this will refresh the operation of your iPod, and you will be able to use it again.

if you should have other questions just let me know.

just leave it turned ON and let the battery drain itself until the unit dies, once the battery is drained, leave it off for at least overnight, then the next day, charge it, and your password and other settings will be gone but your songs will still be there.

I have questions for any ipod user

What is your problem? The ipod doesn't die. Believe it or not but there's a battery inside of the ipod that if you want it to be repaired. Don't send it to the apple company, they'll charge you a **** load to replace the battery. You can find an ipod battery $10-$30 easy on the net&the proper instructions on the net you can replace the battery yourself!

Battery life

battery is most likely at the end of its life.
You should replace the battery, that should fix the problem.

New batterys can be bought from ebay, I don't have a contact there.

If you need instructions on how to change the battery drop me a comment.

Good luck.

Screen says battery is full, but wont turn on

I read somewhere that even with a functional lyra, when it displays "battery full", you should keep charging for another hour. This is said to extend battery life and give you an extra 2-3 hours of power. Either this is perfectly normal, or it indicates that the battery reading tends to be inaccurate. In any case, try leaving it charging even after it gives you the message. Another thing to consider is, how long has it been in the box? I'm not sure about lithiums, but most rechargeables I know live longer when used. Live it alone for too long and you shorten it's life. Could be good to get a second opinion on this battery thing though. If there's a warranty, don't let it waste. Good luck

Ipod Photo Troubleshooting

That icon is almost certainly indicative of a hard drive problem, and it will need service. I don't see a reason for the warranty not to cover this. You should insist with apple to take responsibility. If they shirk, we should at least always give them a hard time about it, never make it easy for companies to screw us - ask to be explained exactly whats their diagnosis of the problem and to qoute their policy that says why they won't cover your problem. I hope it works out, but here's a link to apples support site with some other things you might want to try - Good luck
