IPod won't charge and has sad face

My iPod has the sad face and the X eyes. I can't charge it up or anything so I don't know if I can even try the disk mode. When I try to put it into the mode it just says low battery please wait. I don't know what I can do.

If you hear a repetitive clicking sound from inside of your iPod you have a broken hard drive.If you're out of warranty, somebody has to open the iPod classic andreplace the hard drive. The part is available on ebay. Here's a guide on how to disassemble an iPod classic. Maybe a tech savy friend can do it for you. If you want to pay to have somebody do it for you there are third party iPod Repair Services.

I have been told this is because the speaker wires are pushing against the laser motors. How can I fix this?

Flashing icons while charging... am I really charging?


If the iPod is showing the "Sad iPod face" icon, this means that the hard drive inside the iPod (located on the logic/circuit board) has died/failed and needs to be replaced. If you plan on replacing this part, you may also need to purchase and solder a new battery to the iPod logic board if you were to do it yourself.

30gb video has sad face and low battery and will not charge even


Don't just change the hard drive,Change the motorboard as well.Different generation ipods use different boards and the hard drive from one won't always just plug in and work.

Sad face on screen


I just left you another thread. You already left me two unacceptable marks that I don't that are very fair to me. Especially since they were redundant.

Change them around and I might consider.

Keep in mind that repairing an Ipod isn't easy to do. It requires special tools and special parts.

Is that something youre willing to do?

This ipod wont star or do anything


Have you tried to do a reset? Toggle the hold button on and then off. Then hold down the menu button and the center button at the same time. hold them until the screen flashes. then release. You may have to try this several times.
