Make sure the lock is not engaged first.

I would go ahead and do the firmware upgrade for your exact model #:

If the PC won't recognize the device,

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 Wizard

Wont play music


Even though you charged it all night, the battery may not, in fact, have charged. You may need to replace the battery, especially if it is a few years old

My ipod classic 7th generation is frozen. the light is on but it doesn't respond to any buttons or the wheel. I tried to press the home button and the play button but it's not doing anything.


Hi! (: i'm not sure if this will work, but when my ipod did this, I left it in a cup of rice for a few hours, then I left it charging for a while until it turned on and showed the home screen. If this doesnt work, try calling apples technicians on their website! They can help sometimes..
[Also, yahoo answers might have a better solution] Good luck!

Why isnt my ipod charging?


iPod's battery doesn't charge


Several things could keep your iPod's battery from charging. The major causes are listed below in logical order. Check each one to see if it's what's keeping your battery from charging.


Low-powered USB port

iPods that connect to USB ports require a high-power USB port.

Keyboards and some USB hubs will not charge iPod. Connect iPod directly to the computer or to a USB AC power adapter. Click here for more information.

Connect directly to computer

If you connect iPod to something that connects to the computer (like a USB hub or FireWire drive), connect iPod directly to the USB or

FireWire port on the computer.

FireWire port on a Windows PC

The FireWire (IEEE 1394) ports on some Windows-compatible computers may not be powered, and consequently won't charge iPod when you plug it in. Check here to see if the FireWire port on your PC can charge iPod.

Your computer goes to sleep

Your computer can only charge iPod when it's turned on and not asleep. Make sure your computer is on and not set to go to sleep when you want to charge iPod. Tip:

Some Macintosh computers can charge iPod even though they're asleep.
If your sleeping computer doesn't charge iPod, don't worry, just wake it and let iPod charge.


hope this helps

I charge my mp3 but it doesnt fill up. i charge it for a few hours and it says ok to disconnect. when i try to turn it on, it doesn't.even when i charge it, the icon stays empty.


Check the charging , if you are using USB charging try with another port or with another PC. If the fault still stays then the battery, the main controller within the player or the cord can be a suspect. If there is a small reset button press it down to reset as the last option.

My coby mp826 mp3 wont turn on when i try to turn it on and when i plug it in to charge my cp wont decdect it and it wont charge it doesn't even turn on when i plug it in


Sorry to say it but it sounds like it is dead. You could try to leave it alone for at least a day to potentially kill off the battery in case of a firmware crash, then try charging again, or press and hold the power switch for 15-35 seconds. Other than that, I have had similar issues with rather cheaply built mp3 players, which are fragile to drops, faulty firmware, and of course, water.

My Samsung YP-T9 MP3 Player wont turn on!!


I think holding down menu and the record button at the same time should fix it. I read the best solution and it just turned on. I was having the same problem, mine would not turn on either but just try pressing and holding down the record and menu button for about 5 seconds.

NOw what?!


Hello again Cholo, Well, we?re going into uncharted territory for me since I haven?t had this happen, however, I have found some additional things to try. -Check and make sure the hold switch is off (orange is hidden). -If the battery is completely dead it may take as long as 30 minutes of charging for it to respond. -Let the power drain completely: Disconnect the iPod from all power sources (apple charger, firewire and USB) and let it sit for 24 hours. Please note that you will probably loose all music and anything else stored on the iPod. After 24 hours reconnect it to the power adaptor or your computer and try resetting again. If it still doesn?t work try letting it charge for 30 minutes. If you get it running again Apple recommends you download the latest version of the iPod software updater and update the iPod. If none of this works try the following: -Connect you iPod to another computers working USB port making sure it?s the only USB device plugged into the computer except you mouse and keyboard. Try letting it charge again. -If you?ve been using one source (USB or apple charger) to charge exclusively try the other. -If using a USB cable make sure its the cable that came with your iPod and that it is in good shape. -If you get this far you probably have no choice except to send it Apple for repairs. Let us know how it goes and please don?t forget to rate the posting.
