    My ipod was in my bag, I went to charge it and it won't do anything. It will not charge or turn on. It was working perfectly fine, then it just stopped.

Best bet is to get it into a repair shop. We can certainly take a look. It sounds like it could be hard drive issue or, best case, one of the ribbon cables came unseated and simply need to be reseated. I am concerned due to the fact that it shows that icon AFTER charging it. Was it hooked to an ac charger or computer?

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.

Ipod won't power on.


Hello

Plug the iPod USB cable into the iPod and then connect it to the power adapter to recharge the iPod's battery. The iPod Shuffle may not be turning on because its battery has fully drained.

Move the button on the back of the iPod to the "off" position.

Wait five seconds with the iPod in "off" mode before switching the device back on. This process will reset the iPod memory.

Connect the iPod Shuffle to your PC computer if it still will not turn on.

Open the iTunes program and sync your iPod with your computer. When you unplug your iPod from your computer, it should turn on normally again.

My ipod won't charge. keeps saying "please wait. very low battery" what's wrong with it?


I had the same problem. Went to the Apple store and the technician said that the IPOD battery ran down to low (battery level showed red) and the USB port on the computer was not strong enough to recharge it. He used a rechargeable adapter that pluged directly into the wall (adapter cost about $30) and recharged it enough for me to take it home and recharge it on my computer.He said to never let the battery level drop below 5% unless you are going to recharge it using the adapter that pluged into the wall. I bought an IPOD rechargeable travel kit from Target for $20 and used it to recharge my IPOD. My IPOD works fine now. The Technician also said at some point the battery will need to be replaced (in a year or two depends). Will cost about $59 to replace it (don't quote me on the timeframe or price of replacement, this may have been just for my IPOD but thought this would be useful info for someone.

Ipod not turning on/not recharging


I think your ipod is dead. This happened to me to. I was listening to it when I arrived at my destination, and I thought I turned it off and I put it in my pocket. Later that day when I went to listen to it, it wouldn't turn on at all. Aparently, it had stayed on. Hold the pause button for five to ten seconds. The apple symbol will appear on your ipod. Immeadility put it in your docking station before it goes away. Your ipod will turn on, and itwill start charging.

I hope this helps. Please rate my solution.

Ipod always on hold


My 2 GB nano shows the lock icon no matter how many times I toggle the hold switch on and off and press the Menu/Select buttons. I've recharged and restored it any number of times with no luck. Computer recognizes it when I plug it in but once I unplug it, none of the buttons work. When it's plugged in and fully updated, it shows the languages menu. I'll be eternally grateful to anyone who can offer any assistance!
