When I plug it in the the computer, a battery symbol with like a no smoking sign on it and it says Please Wait. Very Low Battery.
But the little circle on the bottom of the screen is going round and round them after about 3-5min it shows a apple symbol but then it lites up with a white background and a sad ipod that has a triangle with a ! in it and then goes back to the please wait screen.

    Mine is similar. I get the "very low battery notice" but *only* when plugged into USB. I get *no* response when plugged into the wall charger.

    The ipod took a spill (think my son was jumping out of a Humvee somewhere) and fell apart. Have already tried re-seating the batter cable.

Does your hard drive make a grinding or clicking sound? If not (meaning if the hdd is silent or sounds normal) there is an issue with your motherboard. There are third party iPod repair services, that will fix it for cheap. Even better, I found an DYI iPod repair guide,so you can do it yourself too, not that difficult. Part is available onEbay. If you can't do it yourself, have a tech savy friend do it foryou.

My Ipod Video 30 GB shows a sad face. What do i do?


It looks like there is some kind of software problem with your iPod.
First, power up your iPod (showing the sad face). Try pressing the center and menu buttons at the same time, and holding it like this until the iPod shuts off (after about 5 seconds). This should 'force-restart' the iPod.
If this doesn't work, plug your iPod into your computer, open iTunes, select your iPod in the left-hand menu and click Restore. Note that all songs/photos/videos will be erased by this procedure.
Should this also fail, you can try leaving your iPod turned on (with the sad face), and wait for the battery to completely run out (the iPod should not turn on at all anymore). Leave the iPod unpowered for about an hour, recharge it, and retry the above steps.
Hope this helped,
tS

Don't just change the hard drive,Change the motorboard as well.Different generation ipods use different boards and the hard drive from one won't always just plug in and work.

Sade face


The reason a sad face appears is because the hard drive is not being read for what ever reason. Unfortunatly 90% or so need the hard drive replaced. Try these first, with the face down, try to start up the ipod while tapping on the back. A hard drive is designed exatly like an record player and sometimes the arm gets stuck. Also a soft reset (Menu and Middle button at the same time for about five seconds) can often jiggle the arm free. I have also seen low battery's cause sad faces but you would need a wall charger to test this and you would have seen signs of a low battery. Hope this helps.

30 GB ipod video battery problem


Take it to an Apple Store in your area or Best Buy and see if they have any solutions to the problem. If the battery is still doing that there has to be something internally wrong with the player.

I have been told this is because the speaker wires are pushing against the laser motors. How can I fix this?
