Question about Apple iPod MP3 Player
When i turn on my ipod or even charge it, it makes a grinding noise in the battery area. it is a 1st generation 60 gb ipod. do i just need a new battery?
There are actually a number of problems that you could be describing, but without having an actual "hands-on" diagnostic performed by an Apple-authorized technician it would be difficult to provide you with a definitive answer.
Among some of the most common reasons why any device with a hard drive would make a grinding (or clicking) noise are the possibility of loose internal components and/or a failing hard drive. The battery itself should not be making any noise, as most batteries typically contain no moving parts.
If you are still covered by the manufacturer's warranty - or by coverage provided through a third party, such as a Best Buy Performance Service Plan (PSP) - I would strongly suggest contacting Apple directly or your local repair shop for further assistance. Even if you no longer have any kind of coverage, either of these parties should be able to provide you with a diagnostic and more information on how to resolve the problem.
Hope this helps you out.
