I'm pretty sure you have a broken logic board and broken audio jack at this point. The board seemed to have a short which is sometimes caused by 3rd party chargers (car chargers etc.) that don't produce a stable supply voltage. Upon opening it it seems like a ribbon cable was torn. Both parts can be purchased on Ebay for a total of around $50-60, there are repair guides online that show you how to do the fix. It's going to be hard to get a warranty for this if there are signs that it has been opened.

Do you have any warranty left? Most likely battery, but unsure at this point.

I have the memorex Mi4004 and it won't charge my ipod touch. I have to third generation ad it is 8GB.


Hi, I do have the solution, the Memorex Mi400 clock radio does not itself support charging of the iPod touch. last model supported was the iPod video 5g. There may be a way around this however, I have an iPod sound system that doesn't support charging either-however it has a ipod charging port on the back-if I plug in my iPod touch's charger there it charges, so I would look on the back of your clock radio to see if there is a connector that looks like the one on the bottom of your iPod touch. Plug charger in there and you'll be good to go. I hope this was helpful and thanks for choosing FixYa-good luck, Prodzilla.

30GB iPod video not working


1. try holding in the center and menu buttons for a few minutes/seconds and see if the apple logo pops up 2. if you have a warranty you should be able to send it back free of charge and get it fixed. 3.if you dont have the warranty i think you can send it back with a 20-40 dollar fee

I connected my ipod 30gb yesterday, received a message that there was a newer version of itunes for my ipod. I answered yes to download. After download was complete, all that I see on my ipod is "please...


This might happen when 'that application doesnt allow your ipod to be charged when it is getting installed'.

so my suggestion is quit the installation. Charge it fully, and then go for installation.

Please rate my comment if you feel it is helpful.

thanks.
have a great day.

Ipod wont charge :(


Because if you charge the battery too often you might be getting something which is called a "fat battery" which if what happens as well if you charge a cell phone too often, it could also be that the cable that plugs into your computer to charge it could be dusty inside...

Ipod wont come up


The problem is that your iPod adapter does not have a authentication chip in it. Apple decided to go a new route with the new iPods. They now require a authentication chip if you want to get audio and video out of the iPod using the dock connector. So you won't be able to hook up your iPod to your system using your current equipment. You can either hope that the maker of your equipment comes out with a new iPod cable that has a authentication chip (they have to pay Apple for this so if the company is cheap then you are probably out of luck) or just stick with your older 5G/5.5G iPod.
