Why isnt my ipod charging?


iPod's battery doesn't charge


Several things could keep your iPod's battery from charging. The major causes are listed below in logical order. Check each one to see if it's what's keeping your battery from charging.


Low-powered USB port

iPods that connect to USB ports require a high-power USB port.

Keyboards and some USB hubs will not charge iPod. Connect iPod directly to the computer or to a USB AC power adapter. Click here for more information.

Connect directly to computer

If you connect iPod to something that connects to the computer (like a USB hub or FireWire drive), connect iPod directly to the USB or

FireWire port on the computer.

FireWire port on a Windows PC

The FireWire (IEEE 1394) ports on some Windows-compatible computers may not be powered, and consequently won't charge iPod when you plug it in. Check here to see if the FireWire port on your PC can charge iPod.

Your computer goes to sleep

Your computer can only charge iPod when it's turned on and not asleep. Make sure your computer is on and not set to go to sleep when you want to charge iPod. Tip:

Some Macintosh computers can charge iPod even though they're asleep.
If your sleeping computer doesn't charge iPod, don't worry, just wake it and let iPod charge.


hope this helps

My ipod won't charge. keeps saying "please wait. very low battery" what's wrong with it?


I had the same problem. Went to the Apple store and the technician said that the IPOD battery ran down to low (battery level showed red) and the USB port on the computer was not strong enough to recharge it. He used a rechargeable adapter that pluged directly into the wall (adapter cost about $30) and recharged it enough for me to take it home and recharge it on my computer.He said to never let the battery level drop below 5% unless you are going to recharge it using the adapter that pluged into the wall. I bought an IPOD rechargeable travel kit from Target for $20 and used it to recharge my IPOD. My IPOD works fine now. The Technician also said at some point the battery will need to be replaced (in a year or two depends). Will cost about $59 to replace it (don't quote me on the timeframe or price of replacement, this may have been just for my IPOD but thought this would be useful info for someone.

Make sure that your ipod is plugged into the wall and not into the computer. The ipod can get more power from the wall then from your computer. Once it is plugged into the wall try reseting the unit. Hold down the menu button and the center button for several seconds. Make sure you dont have the hold on when doing this. If this does not fix the problem then you may have a bad battery or a bad system board. Contact Apple and see if the unit is still under warranty with this site: https://selfsolve.apple.com/GetWarranty.do

The serial number can be found on the back of the ipod toward the bottom. Contact www.wiredextreme.com.if you ahve any more questions.

My ipod wont turn on or charge.


More than likely the battery just needs to be replaced. I let my nano go dead and it was doing the same thing. So just get it replaced and that should fix your problem.

Ipod nanao 2 gb problem


Have you tried plugging it into your computer and restoring the programming? Also, you can try pressing the menu and the center button at the same time for 10 seconds. It should go black (turn off) and then turn back on with the Apple logo. If this doesn't fix your problem, you got something wrong with the hardware, not software.

Hi there,

It might be possible the you left your iPod playing overnight when you stopped using it. The batteries might be drained already and will need some time in the dock for it to be charged for the batteries to warm up and start charging again. Please ensure that the connections are not loose also.

My ipod nano wont do anything


Press and hold the center button while pressing down on the menu buttton. The Apple logo will appear. This will reboot your Ipod.

If that doesn't work, restore your Ipod to factory settings by plugging your Ipod into Itunes and select restore to factory settings from you Ipod settings in Itunes.

My ipod nano wont do anything


I think your ipod is dead. This happened to me to. I was listening to it when I arrived at my destination, and I thought I turned it off and I put it in my pocket. Later that day when I went to listen to it, it wouldn't turn on at all. Aparently, it had stayed on. Hold the pause button for five to ten seconds. The apple symbol will appear on your ipod. Immeadility put it in your docking station before it goes away. Your ipod will turn on, and itwill start charging.

I hope this helps. Please rate my solution.
