Apple ipod 30gb video

Hi
My ipod just stopped yesterday saying no battery. I tried to charge it and nothing happened the screen is just black. I have a bose docking system so put it in there, nothing. Then the screen came up saying low battery please charge and the green charge at top right hand corner was full (ie fully charged) now the screen is black and I can't get anything have held down the menu and middle button but nothing. The screen when I have replaced it into the dock very barely changes colour. I have just replaced it into the dock again and have a totally white screen with nothing on it all. Please can someone help me. Thank you

    if it is not that??? how difficult is it to change a battery please

  • Abellea May 01, 2008

    Hi I don't think it is dead at all. I am sure it is charged. It is in the dock now and is just a completely white screen. If I take it out I am sure it will go to black. I have done the restore but nothing happens.

Hi,

Normally, an iPod's battery needs to be replaced for every 18 months. Probably it is a sign now !!

In case your iPod is no longer covered by the warranty and you want to find a second repairing company, you can try iPodResQ or ifixit at your own risk

    Few steps you can try:

    Leave it plugged in for a little while, it might be so dead it doesn't have enough power to do anything else.



    If it's still not doing anything, try reseting it by turning the hold
    button on then off then holding the Menu and Center buttons until you
    see an apple logo, then try to plug it back in again.

    some times if the battery is completely drained it will require a
    little time before it responds to being connected to a power source.



    If that fails, toggle the hold switch back and fourth and then press the center button and hold button repeatidly



    If that fails, you may need to restore it.



    www.apple.com/support/ipod



    choose your ipod type and then choose the 5 r's, the last step is the
    resore option. This will completely reset your ipod back to factory
    settings, unfortunately all the songs on it will be lost and need to be
    reloaded.



    If that fails you can call Apple tech support 1-800-275-2273

The recharge time on a fully discharged battery is 6 to 10x the discharge time. so, if that battery was good for 2 hours, the recharge could take 12 to 20 hours..sit back and see how it goes.

I had my iPod (5th Generation Late 2006, 30gb) plugged into my computer yesterday and my computer went to sleep (with my iPod still plugged in). I woke my computer up and then all my iPod would say was: ...


Try a manual reset by holding the center button and the play button together for at least 10-15 seconds, this should reset your iPod and should refresh the battery,
In future do not let your battery run flat completely always keep a charge, and lastly charge through a wall charger and not from the usb port,
good luck

My 30gb video ipod won't turn on...Nothing happens!


It sounds like there's something wrong with the hard drive. You might have a dud, in which case I would call apple ASAP to see what they can do for you, but just make sure it's charged! Sometimes with electronics like this, no lights will come on or anything until it has enough battery life to support that sort of thing.. other than that, my only advice is to call a professional on this one.. sorry :/

Ipod nanao 2 gb problem


Have you tried plugging it into your computer and restoring the programming? Also, you can try pressing the menu and the center button at the same time for 10 seconds. It should go black (turn off) and then turn back on with the Apple logo. If this doesn't fix your problem, you got something wrong with the hardware, not software.

Apple Ipod Video 30GB


If it used to light up before and after a couple of years use it just stopped...it is possible that it burned out. Happened to my laptop. Google "ipod repairs" and get a link to authorized repair centers that replace screen. Some will trouble shoot it for you and if the part isn't needed you won't be charged. If the part is needed, they provide it and if you hurry...you won't be charged for labor. They have a promotion going on right now! Good luck!!
