If it never comes back up then the actual iPod has failed, most likely the hard drive. If you can hear / feel it clicking then it's definitely a dead drive. You can give Apple a call at 1-800-275-2273 to verify

My ipod mini 4gig has been corrupted. trying to restore but unfortunately it wont. it is just showing an apple icon and a triangle with a exclamation point. when connected to a computer it does not...


There are many iPod error icons with exclamation marks


The Sad iPod icon (93936_4.gif ) usually means that the iPod can't access it's Hard Drive. I've seen that hitting the ipod on a soft surface occasionally fixes this. You may need to take the iPod for repair


The Folder Error icon (93936_1.gif) may mean the battery is low, the ipod needs to be reset, restored or needs a service

The Battery Icon (93936_2.gif) usually means the battery needs charging

93936_3.gif means a disk scan failed and will be repeated when the ipod is turned on or reset.



Try restoring it continuouly until it does (eventually worked for mine)

if it is anything else, your iPod may need repair.



Good Luck!

SAD FACE ICON


In most cases, the sad iPod icon indicates a hardware issue. If you are able to force iPod into Disk Mode, then it may not be a hardware issue, and you should try to restore your iPod with the latest software.

Flashing icons while charging... am I really charging?


If the iPod is showing the "Sad iPod face" icon, this means that the hard drive inside the iPod (located on the logic/circuit board) has died/failed and needs to be replaced. If you plan on replacing this part, you may also need to purchase and solder a new battery to the iPod logic board if you were to do it yourself.

Sade face


The reason a sad face appears is because the hard drive is not being read for what ever reason. Unfortunatly 90% or so need the hard drive replaced. Try these first, with the face down, try to start up the ipod while tapping on the back. A hard drive is designed exatly like an record player and sometimes the arm gets stuck. Also a soft reset (Menu and Middle button at the same time for about five seconds) can often jiggle the arm free. I have also seen low battery's cause sad faces but you would need a wall charger to test this and you would have seen signs of a low battery. Hope this helps.

Sad face icon


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.
