Re: ipod new classic wont charge

It should still be under warranty. Take it back to apple and let them replace it for you.

What could be the problem if my iPod Classic won't charge?

Be sure to connect the charging/sync cable directly to the computer, not a USB hub. Most hubs are don't provide enough power to the usb ports to charge the ipod. If you need a method of charging the ipod while away from the computer connect your sync cable to a device like these: Even the USB port on Apple keyboards is not able to charge the Ipod.

If you're using the computer to charge the Ipod, be sure it stays on, when computers go into sleep or standby modes they stop charging your ipod. You may want to use one of the options below to charge your Ipod when the computer is off or in a different location than the Ipod.

Ipod ''dead''

Plug your iPod into a wall charger, let it lie for a couple of hours. When these batteries become completely flat, it won't easily charge through computer usb, so try the wall charger, see if it works.

Hey my ipod touch all of a sudden stopped charging. ive left it like that for awhile and now it wont even turn on HELP!

You will need to plug it into the computer. After you plug it in make sure it recognizes it. If it doesnt then hate to tell you, but it crashed on you. If it does recognize it then your good. Leave it connected to the PC to charge. when it is fully charged, RESTORE IT. ITS A MUST. and then plug it back in and it will be fine

My itunes won't detect my ipod nano 4gb

well sometimes what people do is that they plug in the usb cable before the computer is on and it wont recognize the ipod. You have to turn off the computer and wait till it is on and then plug it in.

My ipod nano wont do anything

By pressing the center button and the menu button the same time and holding it for around 6-10 seconds, your device should turn on. You then should be able to access your files and charge your ipod.
