It's a piece of ****, only a couple weeks old, philips no more, the hassle of taking it back with my personal photos tied up in it for someone to unload off it itsn't worth the 75 bucks. back to the ipod brand.

    the philips logo pops up, then screen goes black, it has a full charge, doesn't show up on my computer but screen goes to ok to disconnect. seems like a flaw in design since everyone has same problem.

  • nastyemale Jul 23, 2008

    and pressing the reset pin does not help, thanls anyway but I figured the pin thing out on my own.

  • popcoolsai1 Apr 30, 2011

    Hold the power and reset buttons together for ten seconds and release the reset after 10 secs still holding the power and it should turn on

Ok, here is what I discovered. I finally got tired of messing with it so I decided to take it apart and destroy it's internals so it couldn't be recovered. I took the lithium ion battery out to salvage it. when I made an attempt to charge the battery, it would not charge. there are 3 wires, red, blue and black. the red is positive, the black is negative and the blue is a thermal switch which shuts power off in the event of a battery overheating. if you are determined to repair this thing, start with a new battery with the same part number. you can get them from china and hong kong. probably on ebay. just as a test to make sure it works, look around for a lithium battery (3.7 volts) and hook it to the battery wires . you can eliminate the thermal switch and just apply power to red and black. I have already destroyed mine or I would give a detailed analysis. but it's the battery, I am almost certain. you can't hurt it as it is already broken.

My Phone has done that a couple of times before. It would slowly start turning off more & more often then it wouldn't turn on with the same problem as you.

Turns out it was the battery as it was a couple of Months old & was out of warranty.

My Ipod 3rd gen. wont work other than when its pluged into the pc


Your battery is most likely dead to the point where it can no longer hold a charge, which is the reason that when you unplug it from the computer, it dies instanly. Batteries are pretty cheap going up to about as high as $25 and if you get it done at a ipod place, installation should not be that much.

I had dropped it about 6 inchs and didn't think that that would cause any problems. My player would not power up. The blue light was the only thing that came on. I tried the soft and hard resets and nothing worked. Windows detected it as a tango media device and had no drivers for it. I finally took it apart and found that a board on the back of the player had come off. I plugged it back in, put it back together and it works again! I wouldn't suggest doing this if the player is still under warranty.
