Re: battery life

Battery is most likely at the end of its life.
You should replace the battery, that should fix the problem.

New batterys can be bought from ebay, I don't have a contact there.

If you need instructions on how to change the battery drop me a comment.

Good luck.

There is no sound or display on the screen when it is power on

The Apple iPod uses a rechargeable, lithium-based battery that can go between 10 and 36 hours between charges, depending on the model. You can charge your iPod using either an electrical outlet or your computer's USB port, but if you find that your iPod no longer takes or maintains a charge despite having the right connections, you should try some basic troubleshooting methods to restore the device's battery life.

Connect your iPod to a different USB port or wall outlet. If you use a USB port to charge your iPod, you may simply have a low-powered port, according to Apple. You can often resolve this by switching the cable to a different port, or using a wall charger (sold separately) to recharge instead. Charge your iPod for several hours. If you find your iPod completely unresponsive even as it charges, leave it plugged in for three or four hours and check again. If your battery life has been depleted completely, the iPod will need time before it can begin functioning again. Restart your iPod. A frozen or dysfunctional iPod may fail to charge, but a quick reset can fix basic functionality glitches. To reset a touch-wheel iPod, hold down the "Select" and "Menu" buttons until the gray Apple emblem appears on the screen. For iPod Touch, hold down the "Sleep" and "Home" buttons (the only two buttons on the device). Connect your iPod to your PC using the provided USB cable, open the iTunes software and click the "iPod" tab in the left column. Then click the "Update" button to search for and install the latest iPod software. Apple recommends keeping your software up-to-date to ensure that your battery life remains fully optimized. Purchase a new battery from Apple. If your battery fails to charge despite all your troubleshooting efforts, it may simply be too old and depleted to continue functioning. By taking advantage of Apple's iPod Out-of-Warranty Battery Replacement Program (see Link Below), you can send in your iPod and receive a replacement battery or replacement iPod for a modest fee.

Ipod won't turn on!

Step 1: Try charging your iPod via USB to your computer. Wait for a few minutes and see if it is accepting a charge. (You might have forgotten to charge it)
Step 2: After a full charge, try using your iPod. If your iPod dies in less than 2 hours or so, your battery is weakening or is dying out. If this is the issue skip to Step 4
Step 3: If you cannot turn your iPod on even after those steps, then your iPod really is dead. Proceed to Step 4.
Step 4: You can do one of either three options from this point:
  1. If you bought your iPod less than a year ago, the Apple Store might replace your iPod for free on the spot as part of their warranty. OR
  2. Go to the Apple Store and ask for them to repair your iPod for a fee.
  3. Go to the Apple Store with your old iPod, and turn it in when you buy a new one - you will receive a 10% off for a new iPod.

My ipod doesn't turn on it's blank

Step 1: Try charging your iPod with your wall charger, after about 5 - 10 minutes it should come on. (You might have forgotten to charge it)
Step 2: If that doesnt work, try step 1, but this time instead of charging your iPod with a wall charger, connect it to your computer. (Your wall charger may have malfunctioned)
If it still doesnt work, its highly possible that your iPod's battery might have died. If you bought it within one year, you can go to the Apple Store and get a free replacement on the spot (part of the warranty). If not, try to have them repair it for a fee OR give them your old iPod, and buy a new one for 10% off

My Ipod (ipod model number a1137) is no longer charging and as a result it has completely depleted its power reserve. I am not sure why this happening or why it will not charge any longer. Please assist...

Try charging it with an AC adapter.

If this doesn't work, it's likely that the battery is simply old. I think your model of iPod is a 1st gen Nano, in which case the battery has probably neared the end of its life.

See this page on how to get it replaced by Apple:

Or, if you think you've got the skills, you could try doing it yourself:

I have questions for any ipod user

What is your problem? The ipod doesn't die. Believe it or not but there's a battery inside of the ipod that if you want it to be repaired. Don't send it to the apple company, they'll charge you a **** load to replace the battery. You can find an ipod battery $10-$30 easy on the net&the proper instructions on the net you can replace the battery yourself!

IPod mini battery dies when nearly fully charged, often while skipping songs.

iPod batteries are cheap on $5...and come with installation instructions. Try installing a new battery and see what happens...?

My ipod has a 20 min. battery life

It depends on how often you have let the iPod charge run down to 0%

After a while (1-2 years), the rechargeable battery loses its ability to hold a good charge. You can order a replacement from any online specialty electronics store.
