Sound like the battery is attacking up. You can buy and replace the battery. That should fix your problem. My ipod mini did the samething.

My ipod wont hold a charge. It keeps going out


How are you charging it?, if your charging it on the computer it slowly decreases the batery life everytime you charge it ( as in it last for 5 hours to 4 and a half) so i suggest you start using a wall charger in future :)

You need a new battery for your iPod. you can view a free instructional video on battery replacement at the first web address posted below. the second one is a cheap site I found for purchasing iPod parts.

My ipod had a low battery, so i charged i overnight as usual, when i got up the next day it said fully charged and when i unplugged it from the usb, it shut off and would not come back on. ive tried to...


I think you may just have a dead battery. The batteries on the iPod last a long time but they do go bad after years of use.
Occasionally a battery will die almost immediately without warning.
Also, use an AC wall charger to verify it's actually being charged.
USB cables work for transferring music, but are a weak source for charging. If you need a battery click here or check ebay they are fairly inexpensive to replace.

Ipod nano touble


Did you try charging it with the USB cord or do you have an adapter that plugs into the wall? If you tried with the USB cord, how long did you let it charge?Did you plug cord directly into computer or do you have external USB hub?Many times the hubs will not have sufficient power to charge.Was your computer"go to sleep"after a while.The ipod will only charge while the computer is awake.
There are a variety of things that could be wrong. If the Ipod sat for a long time the battery could be completely discharged. I've not had this problem on the Nano, but on an old Ipod Mini my sister has. I've noticed that sometimes I need to plug it in with a wall adapter to get the battery charged enough to start up quickly. If the battery is completely discharged,it can take 30 minutes or longer to see any life from the ipod. I would let it charge for few hours if you can then try the reset.
Forgive me for asking this next question...lots of times I ask these basic question and people get mad, but the key lock is off, right? On my Nano there's a small slider switch on the top. In one position the controls are all locked. Please verify that you've got it set to the right position. Mine is locked when I can see the red dot.
Assuming the battery is not totally shot and the key lock is off, it's also possible that it's just "locked up". To reset the Nano press and hold both Menu and Select (center button) for about 5 or 10 seconds. If the Ipod is alive this will reset it.

From your post, I'm not sure if you mean the Ipod was sitting for a long time without being used. If that's the case and it used to work, and it has not gotten wet or anything, then the most likely problem is a bad battery. There are services on the web you can find who will replace the battery for a fee. If, on the other hand, it just suddenly stopped working and the reset does not help you may have a more serious problem.If problem exists you better replaced the battery. Unfortunately there's no way to tell.

Hope this may help you;

Regards,

IPod mini battery dies when nearly fully charged, often while skipping songs.


iPod batteries are cheap on ebay...like $5...and come with installation instructions. Try installing a new battery and see what happens...?
