Question about Apple iPod nano

Charging my Apple iPod 4GB Red

I have been charging my iPod for a whole day now and it still says "Do Not Disconnect". There's no way it could take this long to charge. What will happen if I do go ahead and disconnect? I bought this on ebay so I have no manual - nothing to help.

Start with a reset

and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)

  • 2. Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 10 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.

    Tip:
    • If you are having difficulty resetting your iPod, set it on a flat surface. Make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel, and not near the center.
    • If the above steps did not work, try connecting iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep.

    7th generation iPod nano won't hold a decent charge.


    Hi Sarah!

    It is actually a common problem with devices that feature rechargeable batteries. The solution is to condition your battery. Once it is showing a 100% charge, disconnect and do not charge it again until the iPod completely shuts off and will not turn back on. Plug it back up to the charger and repeat. This will condition the battery to "know" when it is full and when it is not. Leaving it charging all day conditions the battery into "thinking" that it must stay charging or it is empty.

    Hope it helps!

    My Ipod only works when connected to computer, once i disconnect immediately turns off. whats could be the problem?


    When the IPod is connected to the computer, it also charges the battery.
    Leave the IPod connected to the computer for several hours so it can charge the IPod's battery.
    When you disconnect the IPod after several hours and it still turns off, then the IPod's battery is dead and needs to be replaced.

    How do i charge my ipod


    To charge the battery, choose one of the options below:
    • Connect the device to your computer (not your keyboard) using the included cable to charge the battery and sync. Your computer must be turned on and not in sleep or standby mode. If the device is connected to a computer that's not turned on or is in sleep or standby mode, the battery may drain.
    • Connect iPhone or iPod touch to a power outlet using the included cable and a USB power adapter to charge the battery.
    An icon in the upper-right corner of the screen shows battery charging status. If you charge the battery while syncing or using iPhone or iPod touch, it might take longer to charge.
    Note: If using a portable computer, make sure it is plugged into power and that the lid or display is open. If the lid is closed, the computer may go into standby, sleep, or hibernation mode and iPhone or iPod touch may not charge.
    Important: If iPhone or iPod touch is very low on power, it may display one of the following images indicating that the device needs to charge for up to ten minutes before you can use it. If the device is extremely low on power, the display may be blank for up to two minutes before one of the low-battery images appears. If you don't see the white charging or plug icons, your iPhone or iPod touch may be connected with a FireWire cable. Disconnect the FireWire cable and connect the iPhone or iPod touch to a USB cable or dock.
    that should be everything you need to know about charging an iPod Touch. If you require further assistance please feel free to followup with additional comments. If this solution solved the problem please feel free to rate it. Thanks and have a great day-Midwest-Tek

    With hardware issues like this you will most likely want to get the unit serviced or replace it. If the buttons are bad, then basically the whole ipod is broken as well

    I have questions for any ipod user


    What is your problem? The ipod doesn't die. Believe it or not but there's a battery inside of the ipod that if you want it to be repaired. Don't send it to the apple company, they'll charge you a **** load to replace the battery. You can find an ipod battery $10-$30 easy on the net&the proper instructions on the net you can replace the battery yourself!

    IPod freezes


    Every battery has a life span. Li-ion batteries do not have a memory in them like the nickel ones do, but the Li-ion's only can charge up to xxx amount of times.

    With that said, your battery is most likely going bad if not already, great way to test it is to run it completely dead.

    There are procedures on how to do this involves you opening up the IPOD and and tampering with the insides. I suggest if your not fimilar then to take it to a shop.
