Hi,

Drain the power.Fully charge the battery, check.

If the problem persists follow this.

You can try to reset :

http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1382?viewlocale=en_US

http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1320?viewlocale=en_US

If you still have the problem you can try restore :

Note: Because Restore erases all of the songs and files on iPod, make sure to back up any files you've saved on the iPod disk. All of your songs, videos, podcasts, audiobooks, and games can be loaded back to your iPod provided that you have them stored in your iTunes Library.

Retry your iPod with a different USB port on your computer, not a USB port on your keyboard or hub.

How to restore your iPod:

For Windows:

1. Make sure you've reinstalled the latest version of iTunes.

2. Open iTunes, and then connect your iPod to your computer.

3. After a few moments, it will appear in the source list in iTunes. If the iPod's display doesn't show "Connected" or "Do not disconnect" you may need to put the iPod into disk mode to proceed.

4. Select your iPod in the source list and you will see information about it appear in the Summary tab of the main iTunes windows.
5. Click the Restore button. You will be prompted with one or more restore options that may prompt iTunes to automatically download of the latest iPod Software.

The 4 possible restore options are:

Restore Option 1: Restore - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod.

Restore Option 2: Use Same Version - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod even though a newer version is available.

Restore Option 3: Use Newest Version - Restores with the latest iPod Software on your computer.

Restore Option 4: Restore and Update - Restores with the latest iPod Software on your computer.

6. A progress bar will appear on the computer screen indicating that the first stage of the restore process has started.

When this stage is completed, iTunes will instruct you to leave iPod connected to your computer to complete restore.

7. During the stage 2 of the restore process, the iPod will show an Apple logo as well as a progress bar at the bottom of the display. It is critical that the iPod remains connected to the computer or iPod Power adapter during this stage.

Note: The progress bar may be difficult to see since the backlight on the iPod display may be off.

8. After stage 2 of the restore process is complete and the iPod is connected to the computer, the iTunes Setup Assistant window will appear asking you to name your iPod and choose your syncing preferences similar to when you connected your iPod for the first time.

For Mac:

1. Make sure you've reinstalled the latest version of iTunes.

2. Open iTunes, and then connect your iPod to your computer.

3. After a few moments, it will appear in the source list in iTunes. If the iPod's display doesn't show "Connected" or "Do not disconnect" you may need to put the iPod into disk mode to proceed.

4. Select your iPod in the source list and you will see information about it appear in the Summary tab of the main iTunes windows.

Restore Option 3: Use Newest Version - Restores with latest iPod Software version on your computer.

Restore Option 4: Restore and Update - Restores with latest iPod Software version on your computer.

6. A message will appear prompting you to enter an administrator's name and password.

7. A progress bar will appear on the computer screen indicating that the first stage of the restore process has started. When this stage is completed, iTunes will instruct you to leave iPod connected to your computer to complete restore.

9. After stage 2 of the restore process is complete and the iPod is connected to the computer, the iTunes Setup Assistant window will appear asking you to name your iPod and choose your syncing preferences similar to when you connected your iPod for the first time.

Or

Try to reinstall

To update and reinstall your iPod software, first download the latest version of iTunes.

http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/

Next, open the new version of iTunes and connect your iPod to your computer.

Select your iPod in the source list and click "Check for Update" under the Summary tab. iTunes will check to see if your iPod needs to be updated and perform the update for you.

Good Luck.

Live, Love, Laugh.

How to make the sound of the iPod Better


<p>Take your music with you on your iPod, portable media player from Apple. Depending on iPod model can hold between 500 to 40,000 songs. No matter how small or large your music collection, not content with mediocre sound quality while enjoying your music. Using a combination of hardware and software settings of the iPod add-ons to your iPod pump up the jam like never before. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Change the iPod music equalizer. These changes and increases the sound from the iPod to better match a specific style or genre of music. Press "Menu" on the front of Click Wheel iPod. Go to "Settings" and press the middle mouse wheel. Scroll down and select "EQ". Select the type of music you listen to (e.g. "Rock") and press the middle button of the Click Wheel. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Sound set control function for all your iPod music playing in the same volume as surprising increase or decrease in volume between songs. Click "Settings" from the main iPod menu and choose "Sound Check" to turn it off. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Use headphones instead of earphones that came with your iPod. While the earbuds feature enough for everyday use, audiophiles cannot enjoy the limited range of buttons compared with headphones bigger and more powerful. Additional benefits in some models of headphones, such as blocking noise canceling ambient noise, also can help improve your iPod listening experience. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Connect the iPod to a stereo amplifier or iPod compatible. This adds low-range and headsets that many cannot create and is ideal for cases where you connect your iPod to share with a group sounds like a party. <br />

My ipod doe not have sound and a popup says generic volume cannot be stopped


Follow these steps to reset an iPod Classic, or in fact any iPod with a Click Wheel.

Make sure the iPod Classic isn't simply paused or locked.
Check the screen for a lock symbol.
If you see a lock, unlock the Hold switch.
You should be back in business.
Put the iPod on a flat surface to stabilize it.
Slide the Hold switch on, then slide it off.
Hold down Select and Menu together for several seconds with two fingers.
Make sure your finger isn't touching the Click Wheel.
When the Apple logo appears, release Select and Menu.
If the iPod Classic doesn't reset, repeat the above step.
If that still doesn't get your iPod Classic to restart, plug the iPod into a power adapter or a computer and see if it starts up.

Red X on iPod screen, manual reset not working and iTunes not picking up iPod at all. Help!


check to see if your ipod is under warranty, if so take it to an apple store.

if i were you i would manually reset your ipod and immediately after you see the apple logo smack hard on its side on a sofa or padded carpet. If you do it right you will hear the hard drive make a weird noise and then make a clicking sound and your ipod should work

You have nothing to loose, the most apple will do for you is offer you a 10% discount off any new ipod (no matter how damaged the ipod)

Eject your iPod. Then, restart your iPod, You can do this by holding down the center and menu button for at least 5-6 seconds. Your iPod screen will go black and then you will see a Apple logo.
After reboot, you will have no limitations about sound.

Once your iPod has rebooted, check and make sure that it worked. Simply go into "Settings", "Volume Limit". If it asks for a PIN, you did it WRONG. Retry the above procedure.

Please rate me if you are happy with the level of support provided in regards to your query.

Music outside the iPod


You can't because you can't. It is not a speaker that is meant for music, last time i checked it was pseudo something but forgot the exact name, its not able to make audio, just ticking sounds. Its sort of like the 'beep' that happens when your computer starts, you can't make that speaker play music it just beeps..

Ipod wont take a charge


your ipod is exhibiting symptoms of a bad motherboard.
I would plug it in the charger with an a/c charger for a while and try it.
If you have been playing this ipod on a dock, chances are it has a bad motherboard.
You also may need a new battery but i don;t think the battery is making your ipod have the symptoms you explained.

i have replaced many motherboards in the 30 gigs due to people playing them on docks and the boards frying, mostly the charging circuit, and the sound. There is also a chip that comes lose on the 30's if your turn the ipod on with a headphones in and squeeze the ipod on the right side of the clickwheel just down from the middle of the click or >> button the ipod may create sound. if so your motherboard needs to be replaced.

Good Luck

My ipod does not go into menu but just to the apple sign


This sounds like a file corruption you'll need to format your iPod and this should resolve this problem.

I know 2 way's in which this can be done, the first one is by connecting your iPod the computer then going to iTunes (which should automatically come up when you connect it), once your on iTunes go to your iPod then click "Restore". Restore will make a fresh copy on your iPod, and should remove this problem.

If the first way was unsuccessful try this other way, First click on "Start" then go to "My Computer" now when your iPod is connected to the computer look for it, it's usually named "Removable Disk" once you've found it "Right-click" click on it then click on "Format" allow format to complete unplug your iPod and with a bit of luck the problem has been fixed.

Good luck. Hope my solution was helpful in some way. Further problems just leave a comment on this page and i will get back you a.s.a.p.
