Question about Audio Players & Recorders
Hi, Try doing a reset, if that has no effect on the ipod, you will have to send it off to repairs as there is noting we can do about it. To reset your iPod: 1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.) 2. Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 10 seconds. You may need to repeat this step. 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. .. Now if the ipod does not react to anything and is not picked up by the computer, and even if it was, there is hardly anything we can do about it. You can check your warranty status with apple - on this page https://selfsolve.apple.com/GetWarranty.do if the above link doesn't work try http://selfsolve.apple.com/GetWarranty.do or just copy paste the first link to your browser address bar and press enter. Now if you are out side of warranty and you don't want apple to repair it. You can get a diagnostic test service for 15usd from http://store.ifixipodsfast.com/ these guys will test your ipod and tell you whats wrong with it and what parts need to be replaced to get it working again, if the repair estimate from them is too high, then just buy a new ipod. As for DIY self repair at home, there is hardly anything we can do, the mainboard of the unit could be faulty as it should react when its placed on the charger, even if the battery was bad it should turn on in charger as far as I know. so it sounds like the unit is kaput and might require a major repair The logic board replacement costs 90usd $ at ifixipodsfast so the unit might not be worth the repair. You will lose all the content on the player if the logic board is replaced or if you buy a new unit, pretty much the same thing. new unit comes with a longer warranty then the repair. You be the judge on what path to follow. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks, Ekse
