There is no sound or display on the screen when it is power on


The Apple iPod uses a rechargeable, lithium-based battery that can go between 10 and 36 hours between charges, depending on the model. You can charge your iPod using either an electrical outlet or your computer's USB port, but if you find that your iPod no longer takes or maintains a charge despite having the right connections, you should try some basic troubleshooting methods to restore the device's battery life.

Connect your iPod to a different USB port or wall outlet. If you use a USB port to charge your iPod, you may simply have a low-powered port, according to Apple. You can often resolve this by switching the cable to a different port, or using a wall charger (sold separately) to recharge instead. Charge your iPod for several hours. If you find your iPod completely unresponsive even as it charges, leave it plugged in for three or four hours and check again. If your battery life has been depleted completely, the iPod will need time before it can begin functioning again. Restart your iPod. A frozen or dysfunctional iPod may fail to charge, but a quick reset can fix basic functionality glitches. To reset a touch-wheel iPod, hold down the "Select" and "Menu" buttons until the gray Apple emblem appears on the screen. For iPod Touch, hold down the "Sleep" and "Home" buttons (the only two buttons on the device). Connect your iPod to your PC using the provided USB cable, open the iTunes software and click the "iPod" tab in the left column. Then click the "Update" button to search for and install the latest iPod software. Apple recommends keeping your software up-to-date to ensure that your battery life remains fully optimized. Purchase a new battery from Apple. If your battery fails to charge despite all your troubleshooting efforts, it may simply be too old and depleted to continue functioning. By taking advantage of Apple's iPod Out-of-Warranty Battery Replacement Program (see Link Below), you can send in your iPod and receive a replacement battery or replacement http://www.apple.com/support/ipod/service/battery/ iPod for a modest fee.

Tip

The iPod USB Charger


<p>The USB cable that came with all iPod has two purposes: to your device to your computer so you can update and add music, and iPod to charge. All iPods have a lithium ion battery stops charging when the battery is full, the total life of your battery is not affected if you leave the iPod is connected to a power source. It usually takes four hours to recharge most iPods. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Connect the USB connector into an available high-power USB 2.0 port on your computer. Low-power USB ports, such as those in external keyboards and hubs do not work. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Connect the 30-pin connector at the other end of the USB cable 30-pin connector on your iPod. If you charge an iPod shuffle, there is no dock connector port. Instead, use the connector on the other end of USB cable that fits in the headset. Set the iPod down and let it recharge. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Unplug the USB cable when the iPod battery indicator is full. If you charge an iPod shuffle, the green light will appear. <br />

NEED INSTRUCTION FOR Apple iPod shuffle 3rd Generation Silver


Connect the iPod shuffle USB cable connector into a high-power USB port on your computer.
Note: To charge an iPod shuffle battery, connect the device to a high-power USB port.


Please be aware that USB keyboards and non-powered USB hubs generally do not have high-power USB ports.


If you connect to a low or non-powered port, iPod shuffle will not charge.

The computer must be turned on and set to not go to sleep.


Plug the other end of the iPod shuffle USB Cable into the headphone port on the iPod shuffle.

Verify the iPod shuffle is connected securely.


Once the iPod shuffle is plugged in, it will take about 2 hours to charge the battery to 80% capacity and about 3 hours to charge it to 100%.

My ipod was working no rpoblem last night. I left it on docking station overnight and this morning it is not working. It is like there is no power ? It wont sync either totally dead! Any ideas?


Hi,
  • If an iPod appears not to turn on, check the hold switch on the device. If this switch is activated while the device is off, it will not power on again until the hold switch is turned off.
    If that is determined not to be the problem, the battery's charge should be checked. When the battery is no longer holding a charge, the device will not power on, but will show a battery icon on the screen for a few seconds. If you see this icon while trying to boot up the iPod, just connect it to the USB cable and allow the battery to charge, which can sometimes take up to 30 minutes before the iPod becomes operable again.
    If no battery icon appears when trying to turn on the device, try resetting the iPod. Once reset, the device should turn on, but if it does not, the battery may need to be drained first (by leaving the iPod disconnected from power for up to 24 hours), and the reset

I have connected my nanomax ipod to the computer and it is not charging.how should i charge it?


Good morning, afternoon, evening or night; whatever time you are viewing this solution post. Thank you for choosing FixYa to solve your problem. So you have connected your Nanomax iPod to the computer and it's not charging like it's supposed to, and you want to know how you should charge it properly? There are two ways you can charge the battery - charging via your Dock Connector to USB Cable, or the Apple USB Power Adapter (which is sold separately). Here are the step by step instructions to charging your and Nanomax.

Using the Dock Connector to USB Cable
  1. Using your Dock Connector to USB Cable, plug the dock connector end to your iPod and plug the USB end to your computer. Make sure the computer you are using has a USB 2.0 port (check your computer's technical specifications to see if it's USB 2.0 certified). Most USB ports on the keyboards of laptops do not provide enough power to perform charging activities. If you have a Docking Station, plug the docking connector into the station and placed the iPod in the station as well.
  2. Make sure your computer is fully awake and not asleep (meaning in sleep mode).
  3. A fully charged battery takes 3 hours to complete. An 80% charged battery takes an hour and 30 minutes. The battery is charging when it shows the charging icon (a battery not fully shaded in green, with a lightning bolt).The battery is done charging when the "fully charged" icon shows (a green-shaded battery with a 2-prong plug showing).
  4. When you are done, disconnect the cable from your computer.
Using the Apple USB Power Adapter
  1. Connect the Alternating Current (AC) Plug Adapter with the power adapter (if connected already, skip this step).
  2. Using your Dock Connector to USB Cable, connect the dock connector end to your iPod and the USB end to the power adapter.
  3. Plug the power adapter into a polarized wall outlet or surge protector outlet.
I think you connected everything correctly, but the USB port on your computer did not have enough power to charge your battery. If that's the case, you will have to find a computer that has a USB 2.0 port on it (like a desktop PC or MAC, or a car adapter charging device) and connect to it, or use the USB Power Adapter (sold seperately). I think this pretty much answers your question. I hope this benefits you the best way possible. Once again, thank you for choosing Fixya as your one-stop solution spot for your problems. Have a good day, evening or night; whatever time you are viewing this, and visit us again the next you need assistance troubleshooting.

Wont charge


1.) Was the computer turned on and booted up?
*The USB ports provide no power under most computers when they are not on.

2.) Does the iPod work when plugged to the cable?
*If so then you more than likely have a faulty battery or port that is not allowing charging.

Apple ipod not getting charged


Hello,
First, please check your connection (I'm sure you have already done this). Make sure that the cable is plugged in and working on both ends.
If that is fine, I would recommend taking it back and getting a new one. If you just recently purchased it, you should be able to return without a problem. It sounds like you might have a defective product and you don't want to get stuck with it after the return period.
Good news is that when you get the new one, if you use iTunes, it will automatically sync up and you wont have to manually load songs.
Hope this was helpful but if you still have questions, let me know.
Have a great day

My ipod doesnt turn on and nothing works... it doesnt charge and when i plugg it to the computer nothing comes up on itunes so i cant even restore it or anything, ive tried everything... please help


hi,
1. Make sure the Hold switch is off
2. Make sure the battery is charged
3. Reset iPod
4. Let iPod's battery drain
5. Update iPod's software
6. Make sure iPod is the only device in your FireWire or USB chain. Disconnect everything but the mouse, keyboard, and your iPod, then see if it will turn on.
7. Make sure you are using the FireWire or USB cable that came with your iPod, and that the cable is in good condition.
8. Try connecting iPod to the built-in port of a different computer to see if that works.


IF all the above is checked and if ur ipod still remains same please take it to an apple store and check with them!..thank you!!..
