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.

HOW TO UNLOK THE A1136 IPOD


click start control panel scroll to folder options tick in the box to show hidden files and holders

connect your Ipod to your computer


click start click click on you Ipod to open


then go Ipod controls device there should be a folder saying locked

right click select rename to open or delete the folder your Ipod should now be open


or you might do a factory reset

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

Ipod won't turn on!


Step 1: Try charging your iPod via USB to your computer. Wait for a few minutes and see if it is accepting a charge. (You might have forgotten to charge it)
Step 2: After a full charge, try using your iPod. If your iPod dies in less than 2 hours or so, your battery is weakening or is dying out. If this is the issue skip to Step 4
Step 3: If you cannot turn your iPod on even after those steps, then your iPod really is dead. Proceed to Step 4.
Step 4: You can do one of either three options from this point:
  1. If you bought your iPod less than a year ago, the Apple Store might replace your iPod for free on the spot as part of their warranty. OR
  2. Go to the Apple Store and ask for them to repair your iPod for a fee.
  3. Go to the Apple Store with your old iPod, and turn it in when you buy a new one - you will receive a 10% off for a new iPod.

My 20 g ipod wont turn on and it has a picture of a battery with a lightning bolt


When an ipod battery is flat it needs to be charged for a while before it will turn on. Depending on how flat the battery is it may take up to half an hour. If the battery is too old it may not be able to hold a charge at all.

My ipod wont hold a charge. It keeps going out


How are you charging it?, if your charging it on the computer it slowly decreases the batery life everytime you charge it ( as in it last for 5 hours to 4 and a half) so i suggest you start using a wall charger in future :)

Ipod will fully charge but only lasts a short time. whats wrong?


My little brother gave me his ipod shuffle for the same reason, saying the battery was dying and would only play for half an hour after a full night's charge. However, I went ahead and gave it a shot anyway and it always lasts for several hours (long enough that it's never died, so I don't know an actual time).

Anyway, it turned out to be a usb hardware problem. His old computer wasn't built to charge via usb, so the ipod would take what little it could and flop five songs later. I don't know what kind of hardware you're running, but perhaps you could try plugging it into a different computer and seeing if that chnges things?

I would also recommend looking into wall chargers, if that is the case. Otherwise the convenience factor kinda goes out the window.

Dead ipod


If it's frozen, a simple reset should do the trick. Just hold down the "Menu" button and the middle button for about 7-8 seconds

The ipod nano 4th generation will not display anything nor can music be heard. Just bought six hours ago. Fully charged and can play music loaded on ipod through computer but no display just blank screen...


Hi,
This happened to me. For some reason, these ipods go into a deep sleep sometimes. Make sure that the hold switch it is off. Try holding down the menu button until it comes on. If it doesn't come on with that try holding down the select (middle) button until it starts up.

Unresponsive ipod?


Reboot your IPod by holding down on the center button while pressing the menu button. The Apple logo will appear.

If it still continues, reload your IPod software from Itunes.

Ipod problems


First and foremost, make sure you have the latest software INSTALLED.

If your iPod is frozen or won't turn on, connect your iPod to your computer, then press and hold the "Menu" and "Select" buttons simultaneously for 10 seconds to reset the iPod. Resetting an iPod will not affect your files or preferences.

If your iPod fails to hold a charge and it's more than a year old, you may need a new battery. If it's under a year old, I would suggest sending it in for repair.
