PLEASE HELP my iPad 4 wont re-boot. after the apple emblem it shows a small circle with itunes in it and what looks like a cord you use to charge a iPad if you touch it or try sliding it nothing happe


Seems that your iPad has been reset to factory. You will have to plug it into your computer and launch iTunes. From there you should be able to restore from your previous sync. It helps if you use the computer you originally set up the iPad with.

Wont turn on after reset


The iPod Touch has a battery capable of up to 40 hours of audio playback, but depending on how you use your iPod, the battery capacity can vary widely. If you attempt to turn your iPod on and get no result, the battery could be fully drained, which you can easily resolve by connecting it to your computer to recharge it. If this doesn't work, resetting or restoring your iPod may get it working once again.

Charge Connect your iPod Touch to your computer using the USB cable that came with it and charge it for at least 10 minutes before attempting to use it again. If the battery is fully drained, the screen may remain blank for a few minutes after plugging it in, and then a low battery image will appear, indicating that you shouldn't unplug it for at least 10 minutes. Never plug your iPod into your keyboard, but rather into the computer itself. Also make sure your computer is on and not in sleep mode while your iPod is charging, or the battery may drain rather than charge. Reset b> If recharging your iPod doesn't resolve the issue, reset it while it remains connected to your computer. Push the "Sleep/Wake" button and the "Home" button simultaneously until the battery symbol or the Apple logo appears. This takes about 10 seconds. Continue to charge your iPod if the low battery image appears after the reset. Restore b> If your iPod Touch still isn't responding, restore it in recovery mode. First, place your iPod in recovery mode by disconnecting it from the USB cable, and then press and hold the "Home" and "Sleep/Wake" buttons simultaneously until the iPod turns off. Push the "Home" button once again, and continue to hold it while you re-connect your iPod to your computer using the USB cable. Continue holding the "Home" button while the iPod turns on and release it only when the "Connect to iTunes" screen appears. Open iTunes, and click "OK" when the recovery mode alert appears. ITunes will restore your iPod back to factory settings. You'll be able to sync it with iTunes to recover the data you lost during the restore, provided you have synced with iTunes in the recent past. Check Liquid Contact Indicators b> All iPods manufactured since 2006 have built-in liquid contact indicators. If your iPod has been in contact with liquid, this could be the source of your problem. You can check whether the liquid contact indicators have been triggered by looking straight down the headphone jack on your iPod. If you see red or pink at the bottom of the headphone jack, your iPod has been in contact with liquid, and this is likely the cause of its malfunction. Contact an authorized Apple repair center to inquire about whether a repair is possible. Such repairs aren't covered under your iPod's warranty. iPod touch: Hardware troubleshooting http://support.apple.com/kb/ts2771 iOS: Unable to update or restore http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1808

My sansa when its connected to my computer comes on works syncs and everything so as i disconnect it from my computer it' s dead and wont turn on


Three possibilities;
1) You have a dead battery because the battery is no good.
2) You have a dead battery because your Sansa is no longer charging the battery.
3) You have a dead battery because you didn't leave your Sansa tethered long enough to charge it up.

When you have the Sansa c250 tethered to the computer, you should see a tiny yellow lightning bolt flashing, and a battery icon that shows the amount of charge on the battery.

If you see the lightning bolt, but the battery does not charge after being tethered to a working computer or charger for 24 hours, you may need a new battery. You can get one on Amazon.com. Here's a link:
http://www.amazon.com/HQRP-Replacement-Battery-Universal-Protector/dp/B001NZ981S

If you see the lightning bolt, and the battery charges after 24 hours, AND your player works when unplugged--Problem solved! You just need to let it charge for a longer time.

If you do not see the lightning bolt when the player is tethered, and the battery indicator shows "empty," It's likely that the internal plug to your Sansa c250 has broken. Your Sansa is no longer able to charge the battery.

If you happen to be an electrical engineer, or otherwise have a shop full of electronics equipment (including signal injector, volt-ohm meter, needle-tip soldering iron, and stereo magnifying goggles with work lamps) you may be able to fix it yourself. Otherwise, forget it-- your Sansa is dead.

If it's still under warranty, try to get it replaced. Failing that, it's time to get a new MP3 player.

Hope that helps! Please post a message to let others know what happened to your Sansa player.

Hey my mp3 is not working when i switch onn no display???? helllpppp........


Hi there

You computer is probably frozen but this is how to solve the problem

Flip the MP3 player's "Hold" switch to "Off" if the switch is on. Depending on the MP3 player you own, this switch is likely located at the side or top of the player. Once the switch is off, try to turn the player on.

Let the battery of the MP3 player die. A frozen MP3 player is technically still running, and thus the battery for that player is being drained. Wait until the battery is fully dead before moving to Step 3.

Charge the MP3 player using either a computer (that's turned on) or an electronic MP3 charger. Charging the player's battery may "jolt" the player out of its frozen state. Connect the player to the computer or charger via the player's USB cable. Charge the player for 30 minutes before attempting to turn it on.

Sync the player with the appropriate software program (for example, Windows Media Player) for the MP3 player. Connect the player to the computer as described in the previous step. Open the software program and click the "Sync" tab at the top or side of the program. If necessary, click "Start Sync" underneath the tab. The name of the player appears under the "Sync" tab if the player has synced successfully. Try turning the player on once it has synced with the program.

Press the small "Reset" button on the MP3 player. This hard reset shuts the player down completely. Use a pin, tack or thin nail to press down the very small "Reset" button on the side or back of the MP3 player to reset the player. Then, try to turn the player on.

My ipod wont turn on


Hi,

If your ipod won't turn on then try these.make sure you click on the blue links for more info.

Make sure the Hold switch is off
  1. Check to see if the Hold switch is on. It's located on the top or the bottom of iPod. When it's in the on position, you'll see an orange patch.
  2. To turn the hold switch off, slide it until you no longer see the orange patch.
  3. Press any button to turn on iPod.

Make sure the battery is charged iPod won't turn on if the battery is empty. Instead, a low battery screen appears for about 3 seconds when you try to turn it on.
ts1383_2.jpg To charge your iPod, connect your iPod to your computer's built-in 6-pin FireWire or high-powered USB port or connect it to the Apple iPod Power Adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet. Note: iPod models without a Click Wheel cannot be charged via USB. iPod shuffle requires a high-power USB port to charge. iPod nano and iPod (5th generation) can charge via USB or FireWire, but they require USB to sync with iTunes. If you're not sure what iPod model you have, click here.
If you are connecting via USB and the battery is completely discharged, there may be up to a 30-minute delay before iPod powers up. Click here for more information.
Reset iPod If iPod still does not turn on or appears to be "frozen" you may need to reset it. When you reset iPod all your songs and files are saved. Some customized settings may be lost.
Let the iPod battery drain In rare cases, iPod might get into a state in which it needs to be drained completely before it can be reset. If iPod didn't turn on after you reset it, follow these steps:
  1. Disconnect iPod from all power sources and leave it disconnected for about 24 hours.
  2. Reconnect iPod to the Apple iPod Power Adapter or computer and reset it.
Update iPod's software If iPod turns on after you reset it, use the latest version of iTunes to update iPod.

My iphone won't sync with itunes. it did at first but now keeps coming up with an error I have an original iphone, never been jailbroken or any such thing, and can not currently get it to sync with itunes...


Recharge
Make sure iPhone is charged. Connect to a USB port and look for the lightning bolt battery icon in the upper right. If you don't see this icon, then iPhone is not charging. The battery will charge to 80% in an hour.
Note: If you put your computer into sleep mode while iPhone is connected via USB, iPhone may not charge.


This screen means to keep iPhone connected so it continues charging. Please note:
If iPhone is not sufficiently charged it will not show up in iTunes
Use a high-power USB port such as the one on your computer, or use your iPhone AC adapter.
Don't use the USB port on your keyboard because it is a low-power port and iPhone will not charge.
Make sure you are using USB to charge. Accessories that use FireWire to charge are not supported with iPhone.
If you see the red part of the battery image flash three times and then the screen goes black, it means that iPhone is not receiving power to charge.

If the above steps dont resolve follow the following steps :
Retry with a different USB port.
Note:
Don't use the USB port on your keyboard because it is a low-power port and iPhone will not charge.

If the above steps dont resolve follow the following steps :
Restart

Try restarting iPhone. To turn it off, press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the red slider appears. Slide your finger across the slider to turn off iPhone. To turn iPhone on, press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.

Does iPhone appear frozen or stuck? Try pressing and holding the Home button for at least 6 seconds to close a frozen application. Then try restarting iPhone again.

Note: If that doesn't work, try restarting your computer.
If the above steps dont resolve follow the following steps :
Reinstall

Reinstall iTunes 7.7 or later.
Get the latest version of iTunes (7.3 or later) from http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/

Thanks.
