Ipod will not turn off

My ipod has a annoying habit. it refuses to turn off (not always but often enough). function stops on the wheel. the way to deal with it is to place it in the travel external speaker stand unit (from logitech) and once there I can use the controls on that unit to shut down and recharge the ipod itself.

Re: ipod will not turn off

Press both the center and menu buttons until the ipod shuts off (about 5 seconds.) it will then reboot itself and the problem should be fixed.

My ipod model a 1285 keeps turning itself off why

iPod keeps turning off Plug your iPod in overnight to make sure it has charge. If after a full night of charging it has a low battery, there is probably something wrong with your charger cable. Replace the charger cable, especially if yours is old or has ever gotten significantly dirty. Reset your iPod. This basic reset does not remove any content from your iPod. Apple suggests this soft reset as the first fix for any software problems or if the screen freezes. Eject your iPod from your computer first. For an iPod with a click wheel, toggle the hold switch on and off several times, then hold down "Menu" and the center button at the same time until the Apple logo shows up on the screen. For touchscreen iPods, hold down the "Sleep" button at the top right until the Apple logo shows on the screen. Perform a factory restore on your iPod if the previous steps do not fix the problem. Plug it into your computer and open iTunes. Click on your iPod, then click "Restore." This wipes all content from your iPod and re-installs the operating system.
b> iPod Keeps Cutting Off b> Your iPod may cut off during a song or video, or during an application. Different causes lead to different types of cutting off just the sound may disappear, or you may suddenly experience cutting to a different screen. For example, if your iPod cuts off during a song, you may have merely hit the "Pause" button. With a blank white screen, you're encountering a software problem. Whatever the reason, follow some simple troubleshooting steps before contacting Apple's customer service.

Headphones Check that your headphones are connected correctly if the sound cuts out suddenly. If the 3.5-mm headphone jack comes out even a little bit, it can make the sound cut out in one or both headphones. Check for debris in the headphone jack itself, which can prevent a solid contact between the headphones and the iPod. b> Other Sound Issues b> Make sure the volume is up high enough. Also, especially if the iPod is in your pocket, make sure you haven't bumped the pause or sleep button. To ensure that audio plays constantly, engage the lock on your iPod. The music will always stop when you pull out the headphones, and once the headphones are back in, you have to push "Play" again. Cutting to White Screen b> A sudden white screen may appear when a generic software malfunction occurs, one in which t you don't get an error message. You must reset the iPod by turning it off, then on again. If this happens several times and you are using the same application each time, that app may be faulty. Try re-installing or re downloading the app. b> Cutting to Black Screen b> An iPod that cuts out to a black screen and won't turn back on is usually out of power. Usually you'll see a low battery warning, but if you're not looking at your iPod when the warning flashes, you might miss it. Once you connect your iPod to a functional power outlet, you can turn it on immediately, but it's best to wait a few minutes when the battery is very low. This gives the iPod a chance to regain power so it can function normally when you plug it in. Hope it helps.

How to make the sound of the iPod Better

<p>Take your music with you on your iPod, portable media player from Apple. Depending on iPod model can hold between 500 to 40,000 songs. No matter how small or large your music collection, not content with mediocre sound quality while enjoying your music. Using a combination of hardware and software settings of the iPod add-ons to your iPod pump up the jam like never before. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Change the iPod music equalizer. These changes and increases the sound from the iPod to better match a specific style or genre of music. Press "Menu" on the front of Click Wheel iPod. Go to "Settings" and press the middle mouse wheel. Scroll down and select "EQ". Select the type of music you listen to (e.g. "Rock") and press the middle button of the Click Wheel. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Sound set control function for all your iPod music playing in the same volume as surprising increase or decrease in volume between songs. Click "Settings" from the main iPod menu and choose "Sound Check" to turn it off. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Use headphones instead of earphones that came with your iPod. While the earbuds feature enough for everyday use, audiophiles cannot enjoy the limited range of buttons compared with headphones bigger and more powerful. Additional benefits in some models of headphones, such as blocking noise canceling ambient noise, also can help improve your iPod listening experience. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Connect the iPod to a stereo amplifier or iPod compatible. This adds low-range and headsets that many cannot create and is ideal for cases where you connect your iPod to share with a group sounds like a party. <br />

Hi, when a apple i pod freezes and refuse to function, it means that the i pod memory has stop working due to an application you installed in the i pod.

To rectify this problem, you will need to flash the i pod for the memory to start working properly.

Flashing an i pod helps you restore lost memory. After flashing the i pod, you can now start using it again as normal.

Take care.

White screen, have to do a soft restart and then words show up

I have had a problem similar to this recently though my ipod is always white. The white screen error or otherwise known as "white screen of death" is caused by the lcd color screen on the ipod itself. That is why its functions still work but the screen does not. Once you replace the color screen it will be as good as new.

I-Pod wheel broken?

To reset an iPod with a Click Wheel, including: ipodnano3.jpg ipodclassic.jpg icon_ipod_5g.gif ipodnano2.jpg ipodnano.jpg ipodphoto.gif ipodg4.gif ipodmini.gif
  • iPod nano (3rd generation)
  • iPod classic
  • iPod (5th generation)
  • iPod nano (2nd generation)
  • iPod nano
  • iPod with color display (iPod photo)
  • iPod (Click Wheel)
  • iPod mini
  • iPod mini (2nd generation)
  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.

If you're out of warranty, There are specialized online tutorials with iPod Repair instructions that will guide you through the steps of taking it apart and replacing the wheel altogether otherwise you'll have to send it to any third party iPod repair service and they'll replace the wheel for you.
