Hello babytiff,

Like all batteries, rechargable battery inside the iPod has a limited lifespan. The amount of play time that you get in between charges will gradually diminish over the life of the battery until youn get to a point where the iPod will no longer hold a charge.

If your unit is less then a year old the battery would be covered by the manufacturer's limited warranty and you should click the link and follow Apple's normal procedure for getting service on your MP3 player.

If you are outside of the manufacturer's warranty (which seems likely since you are posting here) then you have fewer options. Apple does offer a replacement programs for iPods with defective batteries. For a fee (around $60) you can trade your iPod in to get a refurbished unit with a new battery. For details on this program go to:

http://www.apple.com/support/ipod/service/battery.

Or, you could try to replace the battery pack. The internal battery is generally NOT considered to be user replaceable and I would not recommend attempting it unless you have some experience and are comfortable repairing delicate electronic devices. Taking apart and working on an MP3 plauer is not for the inexperienced or faint of heart. If you do have the requisite know how you can find several companies selling aftermarket battery kits for the iPod just by browsing around on the web.

Best Regards,
Ken

It sounds like it's time for a new battery. Here is your battery:

If replacing the battery doesn't get this player up and running, you will need to contact Sandisk for repair or replacement of your player.

Batterylife,GoGear Vibe 4GB how long between each charge, getting 5 to 6 hours.


The battery life is rated at 25 hours for audio and 4 hours for video. If the charge is not holding you can try ensuring device is secured while charging. If this does not work the battery is bad and should be replaced. This is not horrible news, batteries for the GoGear Vibe 4GB are only $10.00.

My ipod nano 4gb blue doesn't hold a charge. It's


If you left it sitting in the box "for a few years"...then that's why.
The battery has to be used to stimulate the "memory" of the battery. If it was charged once and never used again, then of course it is going to have a battery issue.

My best bet is the cable gone wrong. If you can find a similar cable to purchase from a computer shop or a friend you can try it.

Philips GoGear 4GB Mp3 wont charge anymore. I need to know how to fix it.


Make sure the lock switch wasn't accidentally engaged. If it is unlocked, and it's still not charging, run a Repair in the Philips Device Manager. If it still will not charge, then the issue is hardware-related - contact Philips and find out if the player is still in warranty.
