Problem with my 8gb ipod nano blk

Hello,

I was wondering if you can be of any assistance with my ipod nano, it wont charge when i plug it into the usb. my usb recognizes a device being plugged into its port by making a chime sound as its being connected, but then shortly after it makes that chime off sound as if its being disconnected yet its still plugged in.. It'll repeat this chime on and off several times, my ipod will say connected and then say you may disconnect, but will not charge.. I plugged the device into another usb port of my friends computer thinking it was my usb but still the same thing is happening with it.. If you have any idea what this may be please let me know.. Thank you..

Could be a problem with the motherboard and the connector interface (where you plug in the USB into the iPod). Do you have access to an ac charger you could try? That would eliminate the USB interface issue and point more to a motherboard issue.

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.

Hello.Why wont my ipod nano turn on?


thanks for using fixya to solve your problems, i think the battery is down and need to be charge before you cn power on your ipod again. connect the charger or adapter to the ipod and plug it to AC power supply, leave for a while or some minutes before you power it on.

NOTE: don't always allow your battery to run down before you charge it.

Compliments and best of luck

Belkin FM transmitter problem


the F8Z136-BLK does not support 4G nanos. The pins are different on the connector, so the nano will not charge.

Ipod nano 8GB 3rd generation FROZEN!


hi,

Firstly, don't worry about your ipod, i had the exact same problem with mine and with 3 of my friends here in athens!

Just leave it frozen untill it drains out of battery,
then try plugging it on your pc and leave it plugged for a while,
after doing that try to open it.

NOTE: my ipod opened after this step and worked properly.

If the ipod still don't works you can do the same as my sister did.
Take the ipod to your sales man and get a software update or replace it (if you are still in guarantee period)

Hope i helped,
Looking forward to hearing from you for further assistance!

8 GB Ipod Nano went dead and now won't charge


does it work on the charger? if not, then contact apple or your dealer for more assistance or repairs.

If it works on the charger, plays music and so on, your battery is probably dead and you need a new one.
