Question about Apple iPod nano

1 Answer

Battery Problem? I have a first generation 2GB Ipod Nano, I have had it for at least 2 years now. I went away for 4 days and somehow forgot my Ipod on the wall charger. When I came back my Ipod was fully charged (obviously) but when I went to listen to it it only lasted 2 hours before the low battery symbol came up and it died. The Ipod is completely unresponsive and it wont turn back on until I charge it again. Whats up?

It's possible you damaged the battery but not likely. The ipod has a circuit inside it to prevent overcharging (i.e. it stop scharging when the battery is full).
I would try the five R's at apple's website and then try charging it again and see if it fixes the problem.
See the five R's here:

New Ipod Nano 4th Gen 16GB has went blank and will not turn on


HI there,

worst case scenario is that a circuit has broken inside. But your ipod will be under warrenty for a year from purchase.

Otherwise, leave the ipod to charge for a long time. Just leave it connected directly to the computer USB port despite not having any change in appearance. Also, don't connect it via a usb hub or through your keyboard. You will need to plug it into your computer directly.

You can also try entering DFU mode. Here is a great step by step guide to do that. http://iphonefreakz.com/beginners-guide/howto-dfu-mode/

Then restore the ipod and update the firmware. Make sure you have the latest version of itunes installed. By checking through software update.


I hope this helps,

Nathan.

IPod Nano 4 GB -- what gen?


Hello,
If you have the Nano with the smaller screen measuring 1" x 1.25" and got it 3 years ago, you most likely have the 2nd generation. Apple doesn't really have cases on their site for the older nano. I have the same one and purchased my case at Target. They have a good selection of 3rd party (non-Apple branded) cases. You can also check an Apple store if you have one close by.
Hope this was helpful.
Have a great day

I do NOT want to Pay for a solution ONLINE.....because after 12 hours of work on it, and internet feedback, I am SURE it is a Hardware GLITCH.....It has happened to others......so I am Not sure ,,,,but probably will have to take to China's 1st apple store

Let me Know if HARDWARE or Other Glitch.....CHARGED remains when I turn it Off until VERY LOW Battery + Kills it

Ipod nano 2gb hums, not working


i have almost fixed it but its not completely gone. go to itunes (7.0.2) click on the "Help" tab then click on the "check for updates" tab. download firmwire 1.1.1 onto your iPod nano and for some people it took the very irratating noise away and for others, like myslef, lowered the noise so i can only hear it about 1/2 an inch away
