One way to hopefuly clear it is to take the battery out for at least 15 minuets or longer.. Put it back in - do not try to power it on - put it on charge.. Do not try to power it on for two hours - just let it charge..

If this did not work - replace the battery.. These bateries are only good for about 1 year or less..

If this does not work - then it is apparent that a component in the phone is failing.. And the only fix would be "micro surgery" so to speak..

If you have insurance on the phone through your service carrier - check you guidelines and get a replacement.. It is always very wise to have insurance..

Best of luck !

I have an ipod model a1199. i was wondering if you can use a newer ipod touch charger for it? and if not what kind of charger does it use?


Charge an iPod Nano Without a Charger
If you've misplaced or broken the charger that came with your iPod Nano, you might think you need to purchase a new one in order to continue using your Mp3 player.
However, there is a way that you can continue enjoying your iPod without having to purchase a new charger.
As long as you have a USB cord and a computer, you can charge your iPod without having the charger.

Locate the USB cord that came with your iPod Nano package.
It is the same cord that you use in order to sync or transfer music.
Plug the small end into your iPod Nano.

Plug the other, larger end into your computer's USB port.
Choose "Do Nothing" when your computer presents the dialogue box to let you choose what to do with the hardware or USB connection.
Leave your Nano plugged into your computer for at least 4 hours to charge.
Unplug your iPod Nano when charging is complete.
Charge an iPod Without the Charger
Many iPod owners purchase a charging unit that plugs into a standard wall outlet to recharge the iPod's battery.
However, the iPod wall charger is not included with new purchases, so consumers must either purchase a separate charger or find a way to charge their iPod using other means.
Here's a simple method to charge your iPod using your computer.

Plug the iPod USB cable into the bottom of your iPod.
Plug the other end of the iPod USB cable into a free USB port on your Mac or PC computer.

Open the iTunes program by clicking on the icon in the Dock on a Mac or using the Start menu on a PC.
Click on the name of your iPod under the "Devices" heading in the main iTunes window.
Click on the "Sync" button to synchronize your iPod with your computer data.
While the iPod is syncing, the power from the USB port on your computer will charge your iPod's battery.

Unplug your iPod from the computer once the battery is fully charged.

This one should be ok.

Won't turn on


Is your iPod fully charged? Sometimes the batteries become so depleted of charge that an accessory charger won't turn it on.

-Try plugging it in to your computer or a wall charger for a while, time will vary but it may turn on.

-If it is not turning on your computer will never recognize it, thus you won't be able to do a restore with iTunes.

-Try a hard restart as well this could help you.

I have ipod nano 1st gen and my ipod wont detect by itunes even my explorer using USB 2.0, i have firewire port wall charger when i try to plug it it charge but idont know if it will work to computer cause...


There might be a few issues here:

1. Your ipod software needs to be updated
2. Your usb cord is bad
3. Your usb port is not working properly

Either find someone that has a firewire port and update it via itunes, or use someone elses computer to update your ipod's software.

Cannot turn my i pod touch on


your ipod seems to be having problem like damaged system software. you can reinstall your ipod software but will erase anything on your ipod, don't worry you can sync them again. here's how to do it.
make sure itunes is open and connected to the internet.

Hold down your ipod power button, then hold down the home button too, this will force the ipod to restart and in restore mode.
the screen will go dark and restart, now release the POWER BUTTON while still holding down the HOME BUTTON.
It will show an itunes icon and a USB icon saying connect to itunes.
NOTE: you might have to do this procedure many times in order to show the itunes and usb icon.

Now release the HOME BUTTON and connect to itunes, it will erase your ipod and download software from apple to install on your ipod.
this might take some time, wait for it to complete the task and now you are ready to use your ipod again.
Please rate. Thank you

Apple iphone 3g


I had this happen to me recently - it happened when I used my old ipod USB lead rather than the USB lead that came with the iphone. I tried a lot of things to resolve it, but the only thing that fixed it was using the USB lead that came with the iphone(it should NOT have the squeeze clips on the sides of the phone plug) to plug it into my PC and let itunes perform its sync.

Good luck!
