You must have a 3rd or 4th gen Ipod. It should not do this with a reset. If you reformat it through Itune , then it will. The plug into a power outlet means it is trying to reformat. If it will not, your hard drive is corupted or logic board. If it is the hard drive and you can get it to show on your computer, you can go to your disc utilities and erase the hard drive by writing zeros. then connect to Itunes and reformate. Plug into a power wall charger and it should complete. You need a good charge in your battery. If your battery is not charging or needs to charge , that will stop it from completing a reformat. I hope this helps.
You got water damage which voids your 1 year warranty for a free replacement, so your only alternative is to get a ziplock bag and throw your ipod in it. Then fill that ****** up with rice. Brown, white, long grain, jasmine, or Uncle Bens. You pick it doesn't matter. Seal that bag up and let your ipod remain buried for a week. The rice will **** up every bit of moisture in the ipod. Your ipod will be as dry as the Mohave desert after a week. See if that will help you out.
If your still pissed, then go on to you tube and find the shady Hispanic guy who will show you ways to beat the system and get your ipod exchanged for a brand spankin new one.
What I would do is restore your ipod. Here is how to do that:
Connect the iPod to your computer with the USB cable that came with your iPod, and open iTunes.
After a few moments, you should see the iPod appear in the left panel of iTunes, under Devices.
Click once on the name of the iPod under Devices, and you should see a summary of your iPod appear in iTunes.
Click on Restore, and iTunes will start reformatting your iPod.
your iPod has been reformatted, you will probably be prompted to plug
it into a wall outlet to complete the restore process.
you plug your iPod into a wall outlet via a wall charger, you will be
able to transfer all of your files back onto your iPod. Connect your
iPod to your computer again, and your iTunes will sync all your files.
You should then be able to use your iPod to listen to music, watch videos, or view photos without any problems.
I think I know just the problem. The connection cord that came with the wall outlet charger can only be used for charging. You have to have the original apple cord in order for the computer to recognize it.
If you have a friend with a FIREWIRE plug (wall outlet) try to use that to charge your iPod. If this doesn't work try to put your iPod in DISK MODE and RESTORE using iTunes. SEE THE COMMENT POSTED by :
