Re: i have questions for any ipod user
No, it is not nesscarry to leave your ipod charging longer than 2 days, but I guess you can. It only takes a couple of hours for it to charge. I am not 100% sure that leaving your ipod in all month will kill the battery faster, but I don't think it will. Plus, wouldn't you want to listen to your ipod anyway before a whole month went by? You shouldn't let the battery die all the way before you charge it. It is harder to get it to turn on, if you let it completly die. Also, if your battery is low, I don't think that I would want to take the chance of it dieing on me at any time. If my battery doesn't have the plug symbol in it (which means it isn't fully charged), I go ahead and charge it anyway.
What is your problem? The ipod doesn't die. Believe it or not but there's a battery inside of the ipod that if you want it to be repaired. Don't send it to the apple company, they'll charge you a **** load to replace the battery. You can find an ipod battery $10-$30 easy on the net&the proper instructions on the net you can replace the battery yourself!

iPods have revolutionized the way we think about portable
music and video players. Occasionally, however, your iPod may freeze and no
longer turn on or off.
Luckily, there is a simple fix for this predicament.
Toggle the lock switch on and off several times, leaving
it on the off position.
Hold the "Menu" and "Select" buttons
at the same time until the Apple logo appears on your iPod's screen.
Repeat steps 1 and 2 if necessary, until the
problem is corrected.
iPod Touch 4
Ensure the iPod will not turn on or off by holding the power
switch down for at least 10 seconds.
Hold the "Power" button and the "Menu"
button simultaneously until the iPod powers off.
Hold the "Power" button until the Apple logo
appears on your iPod.
If your ipod won't charge, the fault should either be from the battery or from the means by which you are charging it.
If the battery is very weak, then it might not come-up when using
charger or PC to charge it. Leave the ipod in the charge for about 6
hours and it should come up if the battery is weak.
But if it doesn't come up, then you have to check your charger. Test
your charger with a friend's ipod. If the charge works with your
friend's ipod then it means your battery is the cause of the problem.
The essence of the above test is to diagnose and get to the root of the
problem. So that a precise/concise solution can be proffered.
I hope the above is clear. If not, please let me know.
Only charge rechargeable batteries when they are depleted of power. Once they are restored, it is okay to leave the batteries in the device but recommend removing when not in use to avoid contacts getting moisture in between causing corrosion, also the battery will leak some minimal power when installed/connected in the device.
I probably have the same type charger / player that I also purchased from Wal Mart. If it plays your ipod it should also charge it. Make sure the lock button on the ipod is unlocked and it's turned off. If that does not work keep it unlocked and leave it on. On systems like we have that are not iHomes they sometimes have trouble figuring out what brand they need to charge.
The rapid rate charger WPLN41__ will typically charge a battery in 90-120 minutes. Your battery should be depleted or nearly depleted when you place it in the charging stand. Be certain your radio is always turned off, when charging an attached battery. The NiMH battery will generally go 12-16 hours on a charge when new. If you work an eight hour shift, you might see if the radio will go 2 days on a charge. Later as the battery ages, you will need to charge it nightly. (Think of putting it in the charger as putting it to bed at night.)
Rapid charging is necessary on NiMH and Li-Ion batteries. They require a "hotter" charger, a fast rate, to completely charge the battery. It will not harm this chemistry of battery. It is safe to leave the battery on the charger overnight, or for a weekend. We would not recommend leaving the battery on the charger longer periods of time, as that will age the battery and reduce its life.
(Sidenote: Frequent rapid charging will however reduce the life of a NiCD battery.)
Its either because you dropped it some where or its because u charged it with some other charger other than the specified one. There are 2 solutions for it one is leave the ipod unused/untouched without any charge in it for 4 to 5 days. If u still get the line appearing on the 6th day then the only solution is to get it opened n try alligning the screen else replace the screen.
It is not good to leave your battery on the charger longer than 2 hours. Depening on your battery type, it should not take longer than 2 hours to charge up.
If you leave it on longer than that, it will get too hot, and might make a fire hazard. Also, the hotter the battery gets, it lessens the life of the battery.
Most battery chargers will not automatically turn off, so you should monitor the charging time.
Thanks for coming to FixYa. If you have any other questions, you can leave me a comment.
I would think not more than an hour or when the lights flash that the battery is charged. The newer chargers go to a maintenance mode after a battery is charger so theoretically you could leave it on for weeks, but I don't recommend this.
What type of IPod is this? Also what type of charger are you using? If the ipod does not have a charge at all you will need to plug it into a wall charger for it to get a "Base charge" (this usually takes 5-10 minutes) as if the ipod is totally dead then there is not enough of a charge for the ipod to let your computer know it is there to start being charged. After it has the base charge you can use the usb connection to finish the charge or leave it plugged into the wall charger to finish getting the charge.
