HI jc979,

There sevaral things to be considered when dealing with the IPod player not charging.

  1. Model Number of the IPoD player.
  2. First make sure the USB port on the computer is working and if your player can charge on a different computer.
  3. Make sure the IPoD player is being recognized by the computer.
  4. If your computer is running Windows 2000, there is a proper way of charging the player.
- Connect the iPod to the Windows 2000 computer.
- Select the iPod in the Source pane in iTunes.
- Click the Settings tab for the iPod.
- Click the check box for "Enable Disk Use" (you may need to scroll down to see this setting).
- Click Apply.

IPod's battery doesn't charge Several things could keep your iPod's battery from charging. The major causes are listed below in logical order. Check each one to see if it's what's keeping your battery from charging.
Low-powered USB port iPods that connect to USB ports require a high-power USB port. Keyboards and some USB hubs will not charge iPod. Connect iPod directly to the computer or to a USB AC power adapter. Click here for more information.
Connect directly to computer If you connect iPod to something that connects to the computer (like a USB hub or FireWire drive), connect iPod directly to the USB or FireWire port on the computer.
FireWire port on a Windows PC The FireWire (IEEE 1394) ports on some Windows-compatible computers may not be powered, and consequently won't charge iPod when you plug it in. Check here to see if the FireWire port on your PC can charge iPod.
Your computer goes to sleep Your computer can only charge iPod when it's turned on and not asleep. Make sure your computer is on and not set to go to sleep when you want to charge iPod. Tip: Some Macintosh computers can charge iPod even though they're asleep. If your sleeping computer doesn't charge iPod, don't worry, just wake it and let iPod charge.
You are using Windows 2000 If you use your iPod with a computer using Windows 2000, see document 304801 "iPod: Proper charging procedures for Windows 2000" for steps on how to keep iPod charging.
There are too many devices in the FireWire chain Your computer can provide power to FireWire devices that don't have their own power sources, such as hard drives and cameras. If there are too many of these kinds of devices connected to your computer, iPod may not be recognized.

  1. Disconnect all devices from your computer's FireWire port(s).
  2. Connect iPod to the computer's FireWire port using the FireWire cable that came with iPod.
If this resolves the issue, consider purchasing a powered FireWire hub to connect your nonpowered devices to. These hubs are available from the Apple Store.
iPod is locked up If iPod is locked up it will not charge, reset iPod. When you reset iPod all your songs and files are saved, but some customized settings may be lost. Tip: iPod will not wake automatically if you connect to a 4-pin FireWire port. Press the Select button (center of wheel) to wake iPod.
Faulty cable If something is wrong with the FireWire or USB cable that came with iPod, it may not supply any power to charge the battery. Note: Only iPod models with a Click Wheel can get power from a high-powered USB port using the supplied cable (includes iPod mini, iPod (Click Wheel), iPod photo, iPod with color display, iPod nano, and Fifth Generation iPod).
  1. Make sure you are using the cable that came with iPod. Some third-party cables may not work properly with iPod.
  2. Make sure nothing is in or blocking your computer's FireWire or USB ports.
  3. Check the connections to make sure the cable is completely plugged in.
  4. Try another known-good FireWire or USB cable if available.
If this resolves the issue your FireWire or USB cable needs to be replaced. You can arrange for replacement at the iPod Service Website.
Faulty port on the computer If something is wrong with your computer's FireWire or USB port, it may not supply power to iPod. Note: Only iPod mini can get power from a high-powered USB port using the supplied cable.
  1. Check the connections.
  2. Try another known-good FireWire (or high-powered USB) port on a different computer if available.
  3. If you do not have access to another computer, use the Apple iPod Power Adapter.
  4. Plug in one end of the FireWire cable to the Apple iPod Power Adapter and the other end to your iPod.
  5. Plug the Apple iPod Power Adapter into a working electrical outlet.
  6. If you have an iPod (with Dock Connector) model, connect the FireWire end to the Apple iPod Power Adapter and the dock connector to iPod. Warning: Never plug the dock connector end of the FireWire cable into a computer's FireWire port.
If this resolves the issue, consult your service and support guide to see how you can have the computer's port repaired.
Faulty Apple iPod Power Adapter If something is wrong with the Apple iPod Power Adapter, it may not supply power to iPod.
  1. Try another known-good electrical outlet.
  2. Make sure all the connections are good. Try disconnecting and reconnecting all connections to make sure they are snug.
  3. Try another Apple iPod Power Adapter if one is available.
  4. Try connecting iPod to a computer's FireWire port using iPod's FireWire cable.

SOURCE: docking station for MP3 players

I don't understand people, why pay for a docking station... when all you need is a connector from you headphone input on the player to your stereo or boom-box which has an auxiliary input. The plug you can get at any store and it only cost about 3 - 10 dollars. The plug has the same end you use on your headphones and the other end is the same as the input connectors for your stereo unit. That end would have the 2 connectors (usually red and white) that you use when connecting units to your stereo's auxiliary input. Connect and listen to your music.

Or you can buy and fm transmitter for your player and listen to your music via a fm radio station. Cost about $20 or more... depending on the name brand.

SOURCE: iPod 8 GB silver will not turn on

I went to the Apple site and found these instructions. They worked for me.

  1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
  2. Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.

Edifier brand docking station works with my ipod nano with auxillary cable but will not work in the docking port - no sound and no charging. Please suggest a solution. Many Thanks Stephen


There might be some issue with the docking ports. Try to connect a different iPod and see if its working, if its not working then there is some problem with the Dock connectors in the docking station.

Charges, plays on docking station,but doesn't play when removed.


try doing a firmware update when you plug it into your computer, there should be an option in iTunes in the My iPod section to check for new firmware.

Lead to docking station dont work


contact the nearest apple store. in most cases they would replace this stuff because they want the apple name to keep flying high. Or you'll have to replace the entire docking station if the lead is not sold seperately.

Unsupported docking for Nano Chromatic


Your docking stations support the previous generation nanos but not current. If you can, return the docks otherwise you'll have to fork over the cash for a new one.

Docking station


Hi!

I would suggest that you by-pass any docking stations and connect it directly via usb charger as most ipods do. And also, try to update Itunes and your Ipod Nano software.


Thanks and good luck! =)

Ipod nano not charging on docking system, it has low battery if none, can play with a little charge on ipod but has to be charged with plug first, the docking system is brand new aswell and is charging...


for some **** reason the new ipod nano (4th generation) does not support FireWire and therefore will not charge on any docking station that is a FireWire power sorce - which seems to be most of them out there!
have same problem so will end up charging from computer as docking station still plays the new nano, no point in buying new docking station just for sake of charging!
