Ipod u2 edition not working

Hello kind techs,
when i turn the ipod 20gb U2 on i get either a file folder or sad faced icon that says to contact apple ipod support. when i connect it to my laptop for itunes it just countinuously says "DO NOT DISCONNECT" but never syncs. one time it almost did but that hope just flittered away. it also seems like i can hear the hard drive clicking every few seconds.

i'd really like to get this thing back up and going as my 4gb nano really limits my music selections.

thanks in advance,
deanie

Frozen screen on ipod u2 edition


I would recommend attempting to reset the iPod by pressing and holding both the menu and center buttons for at least ten seconds; or until an apple icon appears on the screen.
if this does not resolve your issue please do let me know. :-)

MY IPOD IS SAYING GO TO WWW.APPLE.COM/SUPPORT/IPOD


If the iPod is showing the "Sad iPod face" icon, this means that the hard drive inside the iPod is dead and needs to be replaced.

If the iPod is showing the "Folder/Exclamation Point" icon, this means that the logic board (the circuit board) inside the iPod is no longer working properly and needs to be replaced in order for the iPod to work.

Can't use my ipod 20gb


Can you charge it? If so fully charge it and then connect it to the computer and reset/rebot the ipod and see if that helps, if you can't charge it just do the same thing.

Will not turn on


If the sad face appears on your ipod, it means it is broken. It needs to be taken into Apple to have it repaired or you might have to buy a new one.

IPod will not start - hard drive making clicking noises


I had the same problem, took it to Apple store, they suggested I trade it in for a new one. With no other options, I opened up the ipod and found that the hard drive off center. I popped it back into place and it worked like normal after that. Opening your ipod will void the warranty. Hope this helps.
