Question about Apple iPod nano

1 Answer

Won't turn on

Okay. I've got a first generation 2 GB iPod Nano. When I plug it up to my computer, it'll charge and work just fine. I don't have any trouble turning it off, but when I try to turn it back on, I'll have to keep resetting it for 5 minutes or so and then the battery is nearly drained even after being fully charged.

Any idea what's wrong with it?

    The battery gets drained before it even turns on. After that, it's fine, so I don't know if it would be the battery.



    I'm thinking about sending it in to get it fixed.

    Would RapidRepair.com be a bad choice?

Tammy,

It sounds like you either need a new battery pack, or the iPod itself has to be replaced/upgraded.

Please let me know if this helps. Take care!

    Anything recommended by Apple or their website would be good. I've never heard of the website you have mentioned, and don't generally recommend shipping to an e-business.

    Try a local shop and see what pricing would be to get it fixed, and then compare that pricing with a brand new iPod of any kind.

My 3rd Generation iPod Nano died and won't charge.


You may just need to leave it plugged in for a few hours and see if it comes to life. It is usually the case.

I am sure you will be fine.. give it a try

My ipod nano third generation won't work.


try resetting your ipod by sliding the "hold' thingy back and forth once, then pressing Menu and Select at the same time(it may take a few seconds, but then the Apple logo will show up, and it should be back to normal). I hope this helps!

Plug it into your computer and use the link in itunes to restore your ipod. This will usually work. If it doesn't, then it is time to contact Apple support to cover your warranty, or take it back to the store.

Ipod Nano Second Generation


Try resetting the ipod, this usually works. As follows: How to reset iPod To reset an iPod with a Click Wheel, including: iPod nano (3rd generation) iPod classic iPod (5th generation) iPod nano (2nd generation) iPod nano iPod with color display (iPod photo) iPod (Click Wheel) iPod mini iPod mini (2nd generation) Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.) Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step. Tip: If you are having difficulty resetting your iPod, set it on a flat surface. Make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel, and not near the center. If the above steps did not work, try connecting iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep. To reset iPod, iPod (scroll wheel), iPod (touch wheel), and iPod (dock connector) Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.) Press and hold the Play/Pause and Menu buttons simultaneously until the Apple/iPod logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step. If the above steps did not work, try connecting iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep. If you are still unable to reset your iPod, use only one finger from one hand to press the Center (Select) button, and one finger from the other hand to press the Menu button. When you reset iPod all your music and files are saved, but some customized settings may be lost. Date and time is preserved (unless the iPod reset itself because it had no power and then was reconnected to power). Other customized settings, such as Bookmarks, On-The-Go Playlists, Shuffle, Backlight timer, and so forth are preserved from the last time the hard drive turned on. Good luck, and I hope this helps.
