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

    I'm sorry my solution was turned into a big pile of text let me re-write that.


    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.

Why isnt my ipod charging?


iPod's battery doesn't charge


Several things could keep your iPod's battery from charging. The major causes are listed below in logical order. Check each one to see if it's what's keeping your battery from charging.


Low-powered USB port

iPods that connect to USB ports require a high-power USB port.

Keyboards and some USB hubs will not charge iPod. Connect iPod directly to the computer or to a USB AC power adapter. Click here for more information.

Connect directly to computer

If you connect iPod to something that connects to the computer (like a USB hub or FireWire drive), connect iPod directly to the USB or

FireWire port on the computer.

FireWire port on a Windows PC

The FireWire (IEEE 1394) ports on some Windows-compatible computers may not be powered, and consequently won't charge iPod when you plug it in. Check here to see if the FireWire port on your PC can charge iPod.

Your computer goes to sleep

Your computer can only charge iPod when it's turned on and not asleep. Make sure your computer is on and not set to go to sleep when you want to charge iPod. Tip:

Some Macintosh computers can charge iPod even though they're asleep.
If your sleeping computer doesn't charge iPod, don't worry, just wake it and let iPod charge.


hope this helps

I dont know what happend but my 4th gen ipod was working perfectly fine then i got an ipad so i was addicted and i put my ipod aside for about a week. Of course it ran out of battery so i charged it, you...


Attempt a hard reboot of the device by holding the home button and the power button at the same time. Contact AppleCare if the problem persists. Also, don't use the iPad's charger on the iPod or an iPhone. It doesn't play well with it.

I played some game on my touch ipod and the ipod turn off ,now I can't turn on the ipod. I bought the brand new ipod one week ago.


It's possible the battery just died, I would first try just charging it. If this doesn't work plug it into your computer, it might need a jump start. If all else fails, redeem the warranty.

I Pod shuffle (2nd. generation) won't hold a charge


Hold in the play button for 10 seconds to reset. If that fails:
iPod shuffle Software Update and Restore
Apple periodically updates iPod shuffle software to improve performance or add
features. It is recommended that you update your iPod shuffle to use the latest
software.
You can choose either to update or to restore the iPod shuffle software.
If you choose to update, the software is updated, but your settings and songs are not
affected.
If you choose to restore, all songs and data are erased from your iPod shuffle. All
iPod shuffle settings are restored to their original state.
To update or restore iPod shuffle with the latest software:
1 Go to www.apple.com/support/ipod and download the latest iPod Update. The update
has the latest software for all models of iPod.
2 Double-click the software install file and follow the onscreen instructions to install the
iPod shuffle Update.
3 Connect iPod shuffle to your computer and open iTunes. The iPod Updater application
opens.
If you’re using a Windows PC and the iPod Updater application doesn’t open
automatically, you can find the updater by choosing Start > All Programs > iPod.
4 Follow the onscreen instructions to update or restore iPod shuffle software.
If you use the iPod Updater application and it doesn’t see that iPod shuffle is
connected to your computer, turn iPod shuffle off and turn it on again.

Can't turn on and can't even charge!


Make sure the hold/lock is not engaged first.
If not, try the 5 R's
The 5 R's for Apple iPods – www.apple.com/support

These are for Nano, but they apply to all iPods:

Reset, Retry, Restart, Reinstall, Restore

Remember these five basic suggestions if you have a problem with your iPod Nano. If one of the following doesn’t help, read on for solutions to specific problems.

- Reset your iPod Nano. See “General Suggestions,” below.
- Retry with a different USB port if you cannot see iPod Nano in iTunes.
- Restart your computer and make sure you have the latest software updates installed.
- Reinstall iPod and iTunes software from the latest versions on the web.
- Restore your iPod Nano. See “Updating and Restoring iPod Software” on page whatever.
