Ipod not charging

Hello there. I have a problem with my Ipod 30g Video. Not long ago, it stopped reading any USB inputs, completely. Meaning, I can no longer charge it and so the battery is now dead. This leaves my ipod virtually useless.

Do you have any fixes for this w/o having to contact Apple directly to service it?

SOURCE: my ipod says www.apple.com/support/ipod

Guys, if you have the ipod photo, I used to get the hard drive locking up , which would bring up the www.apple.com/support/ipod screen.

WHen you try to start it up, put the ipod to your ear and listen to hear if the hard drive is stuck-ie if you can hear the drive repeating a clicking noise, then it is stuck.

If it does this, hit the ipod with an open hand (like a slap). No joke. This is for real. Slap it a couple of times and then try to restart it. If it doens't work the first time, try it again. SOmetimes it works first go, sometimes it takes a few, but eventually it does work.
It seems like the hardware inside is stuck for some reason and slapping it fixes the problem.

My ipod has locked up about 5 or 6 times and each time it has worked for me.

Give it a go. Don't pay apple to get it fixed. They probably do the same thing and charge you hundreds for it.

Good luck!

I found a way to solve this, you have to google for a program called ipod reset utility or, you can search here:

http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1238



Either way, install, follow the instrucions and you can probably save your ipod (note; I saved my ipod on a mac. Haven't tested transfering songs from my PC an this moment)

SOURCE: i have questions for any ipod user

No, it is not nesscarry to leave your ipod charging longer than 2 days, but I guess you can. It only takes a couple of hours for it to charge. I am not 100% sure that leaving your ipod in all month will kill the battery faster, but I don't think it will. Plus, wouldn't you want to listen to your ipod anyway before a whole month went by? You shouldn't let the battery die all the way before you charge it. It is harder to get it to turn on, if you let it completly die. Also, if your battery is low, I don't think that I would want to take the chance of it dieing on me at any time. If my battery doesn't have the plug symbol in it (which means it isn't fully charged), I go ahead and charge it anyway.

I hope this helps. Please rate my solution.

Hello! Maybe I can help with your question. This model headunit does not support ipod control. It does not have rear or front inputs via 1/8mm jack that you could use the headphone output. You only have a couple of options here. First would be to purchase a wireless fm modulator that would transmit the ipod output through your cars antenna. (i.e. set the radio to 88.1, 88.3, etc) These can be purchased at Radio Shack, Wal-Mart, etc. The only other option would be to replace the headunit with a compatable unit. We sell a Kenwood for $139 that has a front USB port as well as the aux input. The USB on this unit reads droid phones and ipod. That model number is KDC-248U. Hope this helped! Good luck with your venture!

When I plug my iPhone into the USB it doesn't


ANSWER: The headphone jack will not charge your iPod. Only the USB will charge your iPod. However, the headphone jack will play music, but the USB will not play music from your iPod.
REASON: The headphone jack does not provide any power to charge your iPod. It isnly has enough power to recieve a music signal.
REASON WHY YOU CANNOT PLAY IPOD THROUGH THE USB: The USB is only intended to be used with a flash drive or external hard drive with a folder structure containing either .mp3 or .wma files. The way the USB works on the system is that it reads all the files and folders on the entire device and will say "reading" until it reads all the files and folders. This should only take a few seconds but if there is tons of files it may take longer. Main problem: An iPod contains much more than just music files and folders - it contains an entire operating system. Worse, the operating system which the iPod uses is protected, keeping other devices except for iTunes from reading the music files.
TO PLAY MUSIC FROM USB (NOT IPOD): You will need to use a flash drive or external hard drive with your USB. This device can only contain music, and the music must be organized into folders. Your iPod will not work. However, you can use Auxiliary input using a cable which both ends are 1/4" headphone jacks, one end going to the iPod and other plugged into your stereo.
SOLUTION: To charge your iPod, you need to plug it into USB. However, to play music, you need to plug your iPod into the headphone jack.
Good Luck! - Chris Proia

Infitek shuffle ipod


Greetings bernince24,

Generally when an Ipod is charged, it is off and connected to a usb port with your computer. It simply draws power off the computer. It is all pretty intuitive, plug and play. Meaning the once you hook the ipod to whatever charging device you are using, it will charge on it own from there.

I hope this helps.

Ipod video 30G


Hey, watch this tutorial and try the things it suggest.

Id highly recommend, restarting, and returning the device into the original state.

All this is covered in the video here:

http://www.apple.com/support/ipod/tutorials/troubleshooting.html

You can also try reinitializeing your usb ports from the device manager by uninstalling them and then restarting the pc to reinstall them.

If that doesnt help contact the appel support.

IPod Battery


You should try using a different USB cable and connecting to a different USB port and seeing if the problem persists. If it does, the problem's probably with the iPod's logic board.

30g video hang!


Well, there's no need to panic - your iPod disk is probably OK. Here are few suggestions that may help you unfreeze the iPod and get it working again.

Step 1. Reset the iPod - Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.) Now press and hold the MENU and center button together for 10 seconds or until the Apple logo appears.

Step 2: If the above trick doesn't unlock the ipod, leave the device as such to drain the iPod battery. Once it discharges completely, reset and plug it to the computer for charging.

Always keep your iPod firmware updated - you can use itunes to check the latest version of the software from Apple website.

We tested this hack with the iPod Nano though it should work on other models as well like the shuffle or the video iPods.
