    My I-pod turned off over night and now this morning it won't even start up again. I just bought it and paid money to download songs to it, spend over $200 total for all of it. I want to know what I can do to get it started again.

    Thanks, Julie Derks

Basically what EverGreen said, except if the soft reset doesn't work, try plugging it in to your computer/wall outlet to charge, then try turning it on or a soft reset. The same thing happened to my 2nd gen nano, and my buddy just did that and off it went.

Do not despair. Let's first try a soft reset by pressing the menu and center buttons at the same time for 5-7 seconds. Please make sure the hold switch is OFF when doing this. Let me know if that works for you.

If that does not work, then please consider the FREE Diagnostic Testing that we offer through our website. It will cost you virtually nothing to have us diagnose your issue.

My ipod wont shuffle anymore


How to Fix an iPod Shuffle That Won't Turn On


Things You'll Need:

* iPod Shuffle iPod USB cable Power adapter

The iPod Shuffle is the smallest member of Apple's line of MP3 players. During the device's lifetime, you may find that the iPod freezes or seems to not turn on anymore. Since the iPod Shuffle does not have a display attached to it, you cannot be notified of any device errors. However, there are several troubleshooting steps you can take to repair your iPod.


Instructions


Plug the iPod USB cable into the iPod Shuffle and then connect it to the power adapter to recharge the iPod's battery. The iPod Shuffle may not be turning on because its battery has fully drained.


Move the button on the back of the iPod Shuffle to the "off" position.


Wait five seconds with the iPod in "off" mode before switching the device back on. This process will reset the iPod Shuffle memory.


Connect the iPod Shuffle to your Mac or PC computer if it still will not turn on.


Open the iTunes program and sync your iPod with your computer. When you unplug your iPod from your computer, it should turn on normally again.

Hope it helped.

Have a nice day.

My first gen touch wont turn on, it wont sync to my pc, and i cant get any kind of response out of it, ive tryed plugging it in, but the screen stays blank, and the computer doesnt recognise that it is...


Your iPod seems to be pretty dated - like 4 years old. A usual iPod only lasts for about 1 - 2 years - so bravo for making it last 4!
What seems to be the case is that your iPod probably has a dead battery so you can choose to do either of the following:
  1. Go to the Apple Store and ask for a repair on the iPod.
  2. Go to the Apple Store with your old iPod and purchase a new one. Mention to them that you are willing to give up your old one, and you will get 10% off of the price.

I would try resetting your ipod. Hold down the menu button and the center button at the same time until the ipod turns off. then the apple will pop up on the screen and it will start up like normal. Then try connecting it again. The computer should recognize it.

Did you try resetting the iPod? If the battery were dead then when you plugged it in, you'd still see something popping up on the screen. What's possible is that your screen got disconnected from the iPod logic board or otherwise got ruined. When you try turning the iPod on can you hear any noise inside? If you toggle the hold switch does it show the orange light? If you can't hear any noise and it doesn't show the orange light, your iPod's logic board probably died. You can get a new one off eBay and replace it if you're comfortable opening your iPod. Otherwise, you can sell the broken iPod on eBay for a decent amount.
