How to resolve Sad face icon issue for click wheel iPod's


If you are seeing a sad face Icon on your click wheel iPod, you may be able to resolve the issue by following the instructions below.
What you will need:
iPod
USB cable
USB power apple iPod compatible wall adapter
The latest version of iTunes installed on your computer

The process remains the same for Mac and PC

First you will need to force your iPod into disk mode. To do this you will need to reset the iPod by pressing and holding both the menu and center buttons. Continue to do this for at least ten seconds or until the apple icon appears. (Note: You may only see a blip on the screen, continue to the next step. Keep in mind though that you may need to repeat this process once to twice to force the iPod out of the sad face status.)
As soon as you do see the apple icon, remove your fingers and switch to holding both the play and center buttons. Keep holding those until you see a check mark appear on the screen, below it will say Ok to disconnect. At this point your iPod will be in Disk mode.

Next open ITunes on your computer and plug in the USB cable to one of the ports on your computer. Now you will connect your iPod to the USB cable. In the left hand column of iTunes you will see your iPod icon; go ahead and click on that icon. In the resulting page you will see the iPod summary. Within this page you will see a Restore button. Click on that button and follow any on screen instructions. Allow the restore to complete fully. When it has you will see that the screen of your iPod will have changed. It will now be displaying a picture of a power adapter being plugged into a standard wall outlet.
Disconnect the iPod from the USB cable and connect it to the wall adapter. You almost instantly notice the screen will show a status bar that is showing that it is actually being restored to factory settings. Once that has finished the screen will light up and work as it did before the sad face icon incident.

Just as a note: If you have dropped your iPod many times, submerged it in water, or any other extreme damage has occurred; this may not work for you.
Mini Tip:
If it has been submerged in water though, you can place the iPod in a full bowl of dry rice. Completely cover and leave for at least 24 hours. I personally recommend 48 hours for best results. It is not a guaranteed resolution, but has worked for me in the past.

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.

Shows a sad face


this will sound really dumb, but I just spent the last 3 hours trying to get my boyfriends I-pod to work, it had the sad face, and I got a tad frustrated and banged it on my Chem book, and it totally fixed it. LOL. Id say its worth a shot, I just hit the side you plug into the computer on my open book, totally fixed it. Good luck!

That is going to have to be repaired. Anything with a sad face on it needs to be repaired by authorized technical center.

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.

Sade face


The reason a sad face appears is because the hard drive is not being read for what ever reason. Unfortunatly 90% or so need the hard drive replaced. Try these first, with the face down, try to start up the ipod while tapping on the back. A hard drive is designed exatly like an record player and sometimes the arm gets stuck. Also a soft reset (Menu and Middle button at the same time for about five seconds) can often jiggle the arm free. I have also seen low battery's cause sad faces but you would need a wall charger to test this and you would have seen signs of a low battery. Hope this helps.
