Do this, THE MOST EFFECTIVE WAY!!!

SAW IT ON YOUTUBE!
THOUGH FIXYA CAN HELP U MORALLY, YOUTUBE HAS VARIOUS WAYS THROUGH MEDIA TO TEACH IT LIVE!, NOW HERE IT GOES,

JUST PREPARE A MINI RAMBO KNIFE, OPEN THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE IPOD,
THATS JUST EASY AND BE NOT AFRAID TO TRY, OK?... I JUST FIGURED OUT THAT IPODS CAN BE SENSITIVE WHEN CONNECTED TO A MEDIA OR MACHINE BUT ONCE U OPENED IT, ITS JUST LIKE A SIMPLE DEVICE THAT NEEDS A HUMAN TOUCH SOMETIMES!... SO FROM THERE, WELL, HOW TO OPEN IT?... PLACE THE TIP OF THE SAID KNIFE NEXT TO THE IPOD'S CONNECTING COVER, THAT MIDDLE PORTION IS LIKE A PORTAL THAT ONCE U EXERT JUST A SIMPLE FORCE OF OPENING IT, THEN U BREAK THE CONNEXION!!
AND WHY DID I SAY ON THE RIGHT SIDE?.. ONCE OPENED, THERES A CONNECTING WIRE ON THE LEFT OF IT MAKING IT A ONE WAY DOOR, WHICH SHOULD BE OPENED FROM THE RIGHT, NOW, THIS TIME BE CAREFUL BUT NOT VERY CAREFUL, AS U CAN SEE IS A CUTE SMALL HARD DISK, FROM THE IPOD WITH A RUBBER PROTECTOR. ON TOP OF IT, THERES AN ELONGATED CONNECTION TO THE I-THINK-PLAYER-ITLSEF, SO GENTLY REMOVE IT, ONCE REMOVED AND U HAVE REMOVED THE DISK ITSELF, JUST SWAY IT A BIT AND ...TIMES UP!, CONNECT IT AGAIN, CLOSE THE HOUSING , U MAY HERE A TICK SOUND, MEANING ITS LOCKED AND READY TO USE!!!

99.9 PERCENT EFFECTIVE!

BY THE WAY, B4 I FORGET, MAKE SURE THE HOLD BUTTON IS ON WHEN CANNIBALIZING!!

iPod Symbol Meanings
The Apple iPod personal media player uses a set of symbols to communicate what's happening to the device: when it needs to be recharged or when it's experiencing problems.
Sometimes it's not obvious what these symbols mean; problems with your iPod may cause conflicting or confusing icons to be displayed.
Folder with an Exclamation Point

This suggests that your iPod can't read data stored on it.
Your iPod may simply not have enough charge in its battery to read its hard drive.
If recharging it doesn't help, you can try connecting it to your computer, then updating it with the latest version of the iPod's software.
If none of this works, you may have a dead hard drive; your iPod will need to be repaired.
Battery with an Exclamation Point
A battery with an exclamation point usually just means that your iPod needs to recharge.
Once the battery has charged up again, everything should be fine.
You can charge an iPod through a FireWire connection to a computer, but not if the computer is in sleep mode or switched off.
Third-generation iPods cannot be charged via USB 2; later iPod models can, however.
If you are having problems charging your iPod, try switching cables.
You can also try resetting the iPod by pressing Play and Select together (Menu and Play on earlier models).
If none of these methods help, your battery may need to be replaced.
Empty Battery
If the battery icon shows an empty battery, this means that your iPod is almost out of charge and needs to power up.
If you know that the iPod has been charging for a while, and the battery icon is still empty, you may need to update its software.
Older software can lead to a confused battery readout.
Wall Plug with Power Adapter
This means that your iPod needs to be plugged into an electricity supply while it updates its firmware.
You won't be able to do anything else with it until you do this.
Frowning IPod Icon with an Exclamation Point
A picture of an iPod with a sad face and x-ed out eyes plus an exclamation point indicates a very serious problem with the device.
In some cases, draining the battery completely then recharging and resetting the iPod can offer a short term solution, buying you enough time to back up your iPod's data.
The underlying problem will remain and is likely to get worse until your iPod is repaired.
Apple Logo
A brief appearance by the Apple logo when the iPod is reset or switched on is normal and nothing to worry about.
If the logo does not go away and the iPod doesn't boot up, there is a problem.
You can often resolve this by putting the ipod in Disk Mode and then restoring or updating its software; note that you will lose all data stored on the iPod if you do this.
If this doesn't work, your iPod needs specialist attention.
Do Not Disconnect
It is not safe to unplug your iPod when you see this icon. Wait till it goes away, then you can safely disconnect your iPod.
Spinning Disk Icons
The spinning disk and magnifying glass icon means that the iPod is performing a disk scan.
If you don't want to perform a scan right now you can re-set the iPod; you'll see a disk with a cross when you stop the scan.
If you would rather let the scan complete, you should connect the iPod to a power source as scanning drains the battery.
If the scan finds issues but can fix them, you'll see a disk plus an arrow.
If everything is alright, you'll see a disk plus a checkmark.
If there is a problem that the scan disk function could not fix, you'll see a disk plus an exclamation point.

My ipod mini 4gig has been corrupted. trying to restore but unfortunately it wont. it is just showing an apple icon and a triangle with a exclamation point. when connected to a computer it does not...


There are many iPod error icons with exclamation marks


The Sad iPod icon (93936_4.gif ) usually means that the iPod can't access it's Hard Drive. I've seen that hitting the ipod on a soft surface occasionally fixes this. You may need to take the iPod for repair


The Folder Error icon (93936_1.gif) may mean the battery is low, the ipod needs to be reset, restored or needs a service

The Battery Icon (93936_2.gif) usually means the battery needs charging

93936_3.gif means a disk scan failed and will be repeated when the ipod is turned on or reset.



Try restoring it continuouly until it does (eventually worked for mine)

if it is anything else, your iPod may need repair.



Good Luck!

Flashing icons while charging... am I really charging?


If the iPod is showing the "Sad iPod face" icon, this means that the hard drive inside the iPod (located on the logic/circuit board) has died/failed and needs to be replaced. If you plan on replacing this part, you may also need to purchase and solder a new battery to the iPod logic board if you were to do it yourself.

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.

My iPod (4th gen 20gig) seems to have died... when you switch it on the apple logo appears then a folder with an exclamation mark... It also isn't recognized when you plug it into the PC...Also I have seen...


battery is not the problem, most likely your hard drive is bad, or motherboard is defective somehow, try open the ipod, and disconnect the battery, see if hard drive connector is installed properly, then plug the battery back and try to turn it on, helps 50/50, if not - replace the hard drive

Ipod Photo Troubleshooting


That icon is almost certainly indicative of a hard drive problem, and it will need service. I don't see a reason for the warranty not to cover this. You should insist with apple to take responsibility. If they shirk, we should at least always give them a hard time about it, never make it easy for companies to screw us - ask to be explained exactly whats their diagnosis of the problem and to qoute their policy that says why they won't cover your problem. I hope it works out, but here's a link to apples support site with some other things you might want to try - http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=93936 Good luck
