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.

    • 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.

      To reset your iPod:

      • 1. Toggle the Hold switch on 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.

      Somehow it got cut off in the middle.

    Have ipod A1137 4GB What do I do after I plug into my desk top. Do not have a manual.

    As soon as you plug The Ipod into the desktop the battery charging image should come up on the Ipod screen ( Yes even if its Off ). Let it charge completely ( the battery picture will be fully green in color ).
    Meanwhile down load I-tunes from the apple website given below and follow the simple instructions of how to manage your Video and Audio files.

    Apple screen

    Connect the ipod to your computer and let it sit for about fifteen minutes. Then it should show up in your computer and under itunes. Usually, if your ipod dies completely, when you try to charge it using a wall or car charger, it will do that, just flashing the apple logo and going back off. Leaving it plugged up to the computer will allow the battery to charge normally, just enough so that it can come on and sync with itunes. While it is plugged into the computer and charging, it should say something like, battery very low, wait few minutes, charging. It should work after letting it sit plugged up to the computer.

    My apple ipod wont play

    It sounds like the battery is fried. That's the same thing that happened to mine. I had to take it to the Apple store, had them look at it, and they actually exchanged it for a refurbished iPod. There's not much you can do at home, unless you want to order a new battery from Apple. I would still recommend having them install it.
