The reason it turns on when you take the battery out is that it is expecting you to upgrade the firmware from www.sandisk.com

The player is probably bad, but either the device is bad, the pc port is bad, or the software is faulty. Try connecting to different usb port, then a usb port on a different pc with a compatible os. If still not recognized, then there is physical damage to player.

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware.

Change Battery


The battery life of your iPod is definitely diminishing
and eventually you are going to have to get the iPod battery replaced.

In order to fix your iPod Nano 2G by replacing the battery, you would either have to take it to an authorized repair service or if you are a daring do-it-yourselfer, you can purchase an installation kit from a website like kokopellimusic.us, who offers such battery replacement kits, complete with tools and instructions.

Link: Purchase Replacement iPod Battery Kits

Be forewarned however- Kokopelli Music does not recommend installing the iPod Nano 2g (2nd Generation) iPod battery without an experienced tech to install it, because the battery is actually soldered to the main board of the iPod.

However, there is also MilliAmp, which is a great online service, who for a small nominal fee, will allow you to send in your iPod and their professional technicians would actually replace the battery for you.

Here is the link for that online service for getting your iPod Nano 2G battery replaced.

Hope this will help.

It wont turn on, and it wont charge. whats wrong with it?


The battery cell is completely down, remove the battery and get a battery booster to boost your battery for sometime before charging, if the battery mp3 did not still turn on, i advice you get another battery to power your mp3.

Compliments and wish you best of luck
