Question about Apple iPod MA446LL/A MP3 Player

2 Answers

IPod White - 2005, 30GB, A1136A, Generation 5th

When connected to the computer nothing happens. I metered the battery at 2.8 VAC. I understand that the voltage should read 3.7VDC.

I left the iPod connected to the computer for over one hour. Then I noticed a rainbow effect across the LCD screen so I unplugged it.

I have checked my 2006, 5th Generation with the same USB plug and it works.

What do you think could be the issue with the 2005, 30 GB, 5th Gen iPod?

Mi ipod nano 5th generation bacame blanck all white the screen and does not connect to the itunes or does not resset


Welcome to Fixya

Looks like the software just hanged-up on you. Try to reset the Ipod by following the procedures below.

1st option:
Turn the Hold switch on, then back to off.
Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for 10 seconds (until the Apple logo appears).
You may need to repeat the reset several times.
If the reset doesn't help, then put the iPod into forced disk mode.

2nd option (Disk Mode):
Plug the iPod into a high-powered USB port, let it sit for 2 hours, then disconnect it. If you have a wall charger, plug in the iPod, then follow these steps while it is still plugged in.
Turn the Hold switch on, then back to off.
Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons until the Apple logo appears
Immediately switch your figures to press and hold the Select and the Play/Pause buttons until "Disk Mode" appears at the top.
For a lot of people, this solves the problem. Connect the iPod to the computer and (assuming it shows up) reset the iPod again to get it out of Disk Mode. If at this point you still have the white screen, restore the iPod using the restore function in iTunes under the Summary tab (this will erase everything on the iPod and put it at factory settings).
Note: Do not disconnect or eject the iPod until the store is totally done. After you think it's done, wait another five minutes.

I had my iPod (5th Generation Late 2006, 30gb) plugged into my computer yesterday and my computer went to sleep (with my iPod still plugged in). I woke my computer up and then all my iPod would say was: ...


Try a manual reset by holding the center button and the play button together for at least 10-15 seconds, this should reset your iPod and should refresh the battery,
In future do not let your battery run flat completely always keep a charge, and lastly charge through a wall charger and not from the usb port,
good luck

Ipod 5th generation white


Try connecting the iPod to your PC. Sometimes this will reset your "hung" screen.

You may have tried this already but:

1. Switch the hold button on, then off.
2. Place the iPod on a flat surface (to make this process easier.
3. Press and hold the center button and the "Pause/Play" button at the same time until the Apple Logo is displayed.

If this doesn't work, try calling Apple or visiting the support section on the Apple website.

I hope these links help, and good luck!

To reset an iPod with a Click Wheel, including: ipodnano3.jpg ipodclassic.jpg icon_ipod_5g.gif ipodnano2.jpg ipodnano.jpg ipodphoto.gif ipodg4.gif ipodmini.gif
  • iPod nano (3rd generation)
  • iPod classic
  • iPod (5th generation)
  • iPod nano (2nd generation)
  • iPod nano
  • iPod with color display (iPod photo)
  • iPod (Click Wheel)
  • iPod mini
  • iPod mini (2nd generation)
  1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
  2. Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.
Tip: If you are having difficulty resetting your iPod, set it on a flat surface. Make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel, and not near the center.
If the above steps did not work, try connecting iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep.
