Question about Apple iPod MA446LL/A MP3 Player
I bought an ipod from here about a year ago and it will not hold a charge for more than a half hour. i charge it and it says charged. i go to use it and it lasts for about a half hour if i am lucky. this has been happening for almost 6 months now. what do i do?
Apple will most likely offer your replacing this with a refurbished replacement iPod, so if you want to keep your own iPod you'll have to open it and actually physically replace the battery. This is something that many people these days opt to do themselves, and the batteries are readly available on ebay. Even though it looks like it's hard to open the iPod there are guides online that show you how to do it, once it's open it's pretty much plug and play. If you're scared to do it yourself there are services that do it for you.

Tips for a great answer:
The iPod A1136 is the fifth generation iPod from Apple that uses a click wheel to scroll through your device's media library, and may occasionally lock up when you attempt to play a song or display a photo.
This error error occurs when the hard disk is unable to access the information and stalls while opening a file.
A reset of the device usually corrects the problem, as it clears the device's memory and any errors.
Check your iPod's buttons to determine if the cause is due to a hardware error before resetting the device, as the problem may be due to the iPod's hold switch.
Slide the hold switch at the top of the iPod to the right, and slide it back to the left to ensure the switch is in the off position.
Hold down the center button in the click wheel, and at the same time hold down "Menu" on the click wheel.
Continue to hold the iPod's buttons until the device's screen shuts off, turns back on and shows the Apple logo.
Plug the iPod's connector cable into the dock connector on the bottom of the iPod.
Plug the other end of the cable into your computer's USB or FireWire port to charge the iPod.
Wait at least two hours for the iPod to charge. Launch iTunes on the computer, and click "Controls" of the iTunes menu.
Click "Eject iPod" in the sub-menu to disconnect the device.
The iPod takes four hours to completely charge its battery.
hope this helps
