I think your ipod is dead. This happened to me to. I was listening to it when I arrived at my destination, and I thought I turned it off and I put it in my pocket. Later that day when I went to listen to it, it wouldn't turn on at all. Aparently, it had stayed on. Hold the pause button for five to ten seconds. The apple symbol will appear on your ipod. Immeadility put it in your docking station before it goes away. Your ipod will turn on, and it will start charging. If that doesn't work, make sure the hold switch is turned off.
If you have any more questions you need answered in the future, check out my tips and tricks pages. I hope this helps. Please rate my solution.

    This comment is for: Katiie_13. I know this is your first time on FixYa, but if you have the same problem as Stovall, type it under: I have the same pronlem. Don't type it under a solution, because then the computer thinks you fixed the problem when you really didn't. Then it gets posted under the solutions. I'm sorry if this offended you in any way. SORRY.

Can't detect it, won't reset, won't charge, won't play... I reset mine and I had the Apple logo flash at me, and it wouldn't stop. I let my battery die and now my iPod is unresponsive...

SOURCE: my ipod doesnt turn on...

hi,
1. Make sure the Hold switch is off
2. Make sure the battery is charged
3. Reset iPod
4. Let iPod's battery drain
5. Update iPod's software
6. 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.
7. Make sure you are using the FireWire or USB cable that came with your iPod, and that the cable is in good condition.
8. Try connecting iPod to the built-in port of a different computer to see if that works.


IF all the above is checked and if ur ipod still remains same please take it to an apple store and check with them!..thank you!!..

hey there, is the USB cable that you are using is recognizing by the computer?

so when you say there is no itunes meaning the computer is also not recognizing that there is no ipod plugged into the computer?

To reset an iPod with a Click Wheel, including: ipodnano3.jpg ipodclassic.jpg icon_ipod_5g.gif ipodnano2.jpg ipodnano.jpg ipodphoto.gif ipodg4.gif ipodmini.gif
  • iPod nano (3rd generation)
  • iPod classic
  • iPod (5th generation)
  • iPod nano (2nd generation)
  • iPod nano
  • iPod with color display (iPod photo)
  • iPod (Click Wheel)
  • iPod mini
  • iPod mini (2nd generation)
  1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
  2. Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 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.

Ipod wont show up on itunes


i had the exact same problem with my ipod.

whenever i plugged my ipod in to my computer, it just charged and itunes didnt reconize my ipod.

so i saw the comment on here that said to reset your ipod when it was plugged into your computer with itunes open and it worked!!

(to reset your ipod press the menu button and the center button at the same time and hold them down for a couple of seconds till the screen goes black)

i hope this works for anyone else who has the same problem with thier ipod!!
