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

How to fix a ipod once its been in the factory


Hi there and welcome to FixYa,
In order to be able to help you, please be a bit more specific. 'In the factory' is not really a helpful idea on what could be the problem.
Thank you, kind regards

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 grandson gave me a apple 20GB U2 IPOD I HAVE NOT GOT A CLUE HOW TOUSE IT


You will first need to download itunes from the apple website at www.apple.com/itunes once installed open itunes and then connect your ipod to the computer. Through itunes you will now be able to put your music on your computer and then transfer it to your ipod.

At the apple website you will also be able to download a manual for your ipod see http://support.apple.com/manuals/#ipod

Hope this helps.

Go to the start tab and click my computer and click your ipods picture and if it doesn't have one it should have a icon that has your ipods IP number.

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.

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 shows sad face and folders


the sad face means there is a software / hardware side fault witch needs service.

Start with these five simple solutions: Reset, retry, restart, reinstall, or restore…

www.apple.com/support/ipod/five_rs/

If they dont work you will need to send the ipod in for service.
