    The power button light flashes, but it won't turn on until I close the thing completely and push the button to re-open it--then it turns on, but it won't play songs all the way through. It plays about 3/4 of a song and starts it over. If I plug a cable into the aux jack and plug the other end into my ipod headphones jack, it works.

I'm disassembling mine today, but am stuck getting the whole unit apart. I did take the two screws off in the back and that is where you'll find the lithium battery. It is attached with a standard cable that allows you to remove the battery and replace yourself with no tools required (aside from those two initial screws).

Will try to post my solutions later today if I get anywhere...FYI, if you get your unit wet, be sure to remove the battery as QUICKLY as possible, then let the unit dry out. Otherwise you'll be stuck with a dead unit like mine. You might be able to clean the green corrosion off the components inside that are causing the unit to short out (thanks to the battery being still connected while wet). That's what I'm trying to do as we speak.

The battery of my iPod is not charging


<p>When you buy an iPod, the device comes with cables that connect the charging device to the computer. When the iPod battery is low, you can recharge by plugging into your desktop or laptop. But sometimes, when you connect your iPod to your computer, the battery charger. According to Apple's site, some problems may prevent your iPod from charging properly. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Connect your iPod USB charging cable only one USB port on the computer itself. External port devices, such as a USB hub, do not provide enough power to recharge your iPod. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Connect the iPod firewire charging only one firewire port on your computer. Like USB, Firewire ports are not enough of a load to the battery of your iPod. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Disconnect the computer from sleep when the computer set to sleep after a certain time. An iPod can only load on a computer that is connected and not in sleep mode. To enable sleep mode on most computers, you can move the mouse or press the power button once. Hold the power button, which usually turns off the computer. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Turn the iPod off and on when the unit is frozen. A frozen iPod is not charging. If the unit is still frozen when you turn it on again, restart the iPod by pressing the "Hold" switch to "On" and then back to "Off" and press and hold a "Menu" and "Select" buttons simultaneously or " Start "and" Menu "button. Hold the buttons until the Apple logo appears on the screen. <br /> <p><br /> <p>5. Set the system up-to-iPod charger so that when using a Windows 2000 computer. In preparation for the system to load the iPod device to the unit with the charging cable, launch iTunes and "iPod" in the left pane to "Settings" tab to go, check the box next to "Enable Disk use", and click the "Apply" button. Once the configuration is in place, the iPod will charge as normal. <br />

My ipod will not turn on


Find out what to do if your iPod won't turn on.

Several things could prevent iPod from turning on. Check each cause in this order to find out what's wrong.
Products Affected

iPod
Resolution
Make sure the Hold switch is off

1. Check to see if the Hold switch is on. It's located on the top or the bottom of iPod. When it's in the on position, you'll see an orange patch.
2. To turn the hold switch off, slide it until you no longer see the orange patch.
3. Press any button to turn on iPod.

iPod hold switch on iPod hold switch on
Make sure the battery is charged

iPod won't turn on if the battery is empty. Instead, a low battery screen appears for about 3 seconds when you try to turn it on.

iPod battery empty icon

To charge your iPod, connect your iPod to your computer's built-in 6-pin FireWire or high-powered USB port or connect it to the Apple iPod Power Adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet. Note: iPod models without a Click Wheel cannot be charged via USB. iPod shuffle requires a high-power USB port to charge. iPod nano and iPod (5th generation) can charge via USB or FireWire, but they require USB to sync with iTunes. If you're not sure what iPod model you have, click here.

If you are connecting via USB and the battery is completely discharged, there may be up to a 30-minute delay before iPod powers up. Click here for more information.
Reset iPod

If iPod still does not turn on or appears to be "frozen" you may need to reset it. When you reset iPod all your songs and files are saved. Some customized settings may be lost.
Let the iPod battery drain

In rare cases, iPod might get into a state in which it needs to be drained completely before it can be reset. If iPod didn't turn on after you reset it, follow these steps:

1. Disconnect iPod from all power sources and leave it disconnected for about 24 hours.
2. Reconnect iPod to the Apple iPod Power Adapter or computer and reset it.

Update iPod's software

If iPod turns on after you reset it, use the latest version of iTunes to update iPod.


Additional Information

If you have tried the solutions above and iPod still won't turn on, check the following:

* 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.
* Make sure you are using the FireWire or USB cable that came with your iPod, and that the cable is in good condition.
* Try connecting iPod to the built-in port of a different computer to see if that works. Note: If using a portable computer, make sure it is plugged in to a power source and that the lid or display is open. If the lid is closed the computer may go into either standby, sleep, or hibernation mode and iPod will not charge properly.

If you still can't turn iPod on after performing these steps, it may need to be repaired. You can arrange for repair at the iPod Service Website.

iPod may not power on, may be stuck on the battery logo, or may have stopped responding while playing music (in which case the Click Wheel doesn't respond).
Products Affected

iPod classic (120GB), iPod nano, iPod classic, iPod classic 160GB (Late 2009), iPod (5th generation), iPod (5th generation Late 2006)
Resolution

If you experience any of the above issues, try the following steps:

1. Toggle the Hold switch. To do this, slide the switch to Hold (an orange bar appears) and then slide it back (orange bar is hidden).
2. Reset the iPod by holding down the Menu and Center buttons for 10 seconds.
* If the Apple logo appears on the display, connect the iPod to a computer and verify that it appears in iTunes and can play music. If the iPod appears in iTunes and can play music, no further troubleshooting is needed.
* If the Apple logo does not appear or the iPod is not seen in iTunes, connect the iPod to a power source by either plugging it into an Apple iPod USB Power Adapter or directly into a computer's USB port.
3. Let the iPod charge for at least 20 minutes. Note: If the iPod is connected to a computer, make sure the computer does not sleep, standby, or hibernate during the 20-minute charging period.
4. After the iPod has charged for at least 20 minutes and while it is still connected to the power source, toggle the Hold switch again as in step 1.
5. Try resetting the iPod by holding down the Menu and Center buttons for 10 seconds.
* If the Apple logo appears on the display, connect the iPod to a computer and verify that it appears in iTunes and can play music. If the iPod appears in iTunes and can play music, no further troubleshooting is needed.
* If the Apple logo does not appear or the iPod is not seen in iTunes, try putting the iPod into disk mode and restoring.
6. Try putting the iPod into disk mode.
* While in disk mode, connect the iPod to iTunes and try to restore.
* If the iPod is still not recognized by iTunes, the iPod should be serviced.

It's stuck and won't play the songs


  1. First make sure that your iPod’s hold button is of. (This is the little switch at the top left corner).
  2. Move the hold switch to the on position and then move it back to off.
  3. Hold down the Menu button on the clickwheel and the center button at the same time. Hold these together for 6-10 seconds. This should restart the iPod. You’ll know the iPod is restarting when the screen changes and the Apple logo appears.
  4. If this doesn’t work at first, you should repeat the steps.
  5. If this doesn’t work, you should try plugging your iPod into a power source and let it charge. Then repeat the steps.

    As far as iPod connections - they will work with a regular iPod and an iPod Nano. You have two options depending on how much you want to spend and how much convenience you want.


    Option 1 - Use a Pioneer CD-IB100 adapter. This will plug into the docking port on the bottom of the IPod, charge it, offer control and song information on the head unit. You need to use this one and not the newer CD-I200 cable because your head unit is not compatible with the newer piece.


    Option 2 - Use a Pioneer CD-RB10 adapter and a 3.5mm to RCA cable that will plug into the headphone jack of the iPod. You will only get audio input to the head unit but this option is somewhat cheaper.


    As far as the clock settings - hold the 'source' button to shut the unit off(key still has to be on). Push the 'function' button until options appear - you can switch between options by repeatedly pushing the 'function' button and adjust settings by using the up/down/left/right arrows.

This issue only arises if you have a particular chipset in your player (about a 20% chance).....good luck my friend.
