30GB Ipod video won't turn on

My ipod won't turn on, even when i hold down the play and menu buttons. I tried to reset it, but the apple logo just appears and then nothing else happens. I hooked it up to my laptop but the computer won't recognise it, then the screen flashes for a second displaying an unhappy face and a link to the apple support site, then returns to the apple logo, next the backlight shines showing the sign saying "please wait, very low battery". What does this mean, and how can i fix the problem, please?

N1amh, your problem could be battery related or could be other problems. Apple's website has a good checklist for troubleshooting power source problems (may be a faulty USB port or cable). In brief, if you have other USB ports, powered hubs, or speaker-charger options, try these and see if you get the 'pod to charge. If it seems to charge, but then quickly drains and you get a series of rapid beeps and then the low battery message, it *could* be a sign that the hard drive needs replacement. (This isn't a definite diagnostic). The website ifixit.com has good do-it-yourself instructions for replacing batteries, etc. and can also sell you tools and parts. I've replaced the battery, screen and headphone jack on my daughter's 30gig video ipod, at different times, and it's do-able, though it's awfully easy to break one or more of the plastic closure tabs each time you open up the case. If you need to replace the hard drive, I read on another site that you can get decent drives for around $30 new on ebay. Best of luck!

My ipod nano is stuck on language selection and is frozen can you help me?


Hi,

If your iPod is frozen or won't turn on, the steps to reset it vary by model.

  1. Toggle the Hold switch. To do this, slide the switch to Hold (an orange bar appears) and then slide it back (orange bar is hidden).
  2. Reset the iPod by holding down the Menu and Center buttons for 10 seconds.
    • If the Apple logo appears on the display, connect the iPod to a computer and verify that it appears in iTunes and can play music. If the iPod appears in iTunes and can play music, no further troubleshooting is needed.
    • If the Apple logo does not appear or the iPod is not seen in iTunes, connect the iPod to a power source by either plugging it into an Apple iPod USB Power Adapter or directly into a computer's USB port.
  3. Let the iPod charge for at least 20 minutes. Note: If the iPod is connected to a computer, make sure the computer does not sleep, standby, or hibernate during the 20-minute charging period.
  4. After the iPod has charged for at least 20 minutes and while it is still connected to the power source, toggle the Hold switch again as in step 1.
  5. Try resetting the iPod by holding down the Menu and Center buttons for 10 seconds.
    • If the Apple logo appears on the display, connect the iPod to a computer and verify that it appears in iTunes and can play music. If the iPod appears in iTunes and can play music, no further troubleshooting is needed.
    • If the Apple logo does not appear or the iPod is not seen in iTunes, try putting the iPod into disk mode and restoring.
  6. Try putting the iPod into disk mode.
    • While in disk mode, connect the iPod to iTunes and try to restore.
    • If the iPod is still not recognized by iTunes, the iPod should be serviced.
    Hope i helped you.
Thanks.

Tip:
  • 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.

    First make sure your hold switch isn't on. It's on the top or bottom and slides back and forth. It needs to be switched to the left. Once it is to the left, here's how you reset:

    You can reset your ipod by holding down the menu and select (round button in the center) buttons down for at least 10 seconds. You'll see an apple logo flash, that's when you stop pressing the buttons. It will shut off, then back on.
