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.

I hope this helps. Please rate my solution.

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!

7th generation iPod nano won't hold a decent charge.


Hi Sarah!

It is actually a common problem with devices that feature rechargeable batteries. The solution is to condition your battery. Once it is showing a 100% charge, disconnect and do not charge it again until the iPod completely shuts off and will not turn back on. Plug it back up to the charger and repeat. This will condition the battery to "know" when it is full and when it is not. Leaving it charging all day conditions the battery into "thinking" that it must stay charging or it is empty.

Hope it helps!

I have an ipod model a1199. i was wondering if you can use a newer ipod touch charger for it? and if not what kind of charger does it use?


Charge an iPod Nano Without a Charger
If you've misplaced or broken the charger that came with your iPod Nano, you might think you need to purchase a new one in order to continue using your Mp3 player.
However, there is a way that you can continue enjoying your iPod without having to purchase a new charger.
As long as you have a USB cord and a computer, you can charge your iPod without having the charger.

Locate the USB cord that came with your iPod Nano package.
It is the same cord that you use in order to sync or transfer music.
Plug the small end into your iPod Nano.

Plug the other, larger end into your computer's USB port.
Choose "Do Nothing" when your computer presents the dialogue box to let you choose what to do with the hardware or USB connection.
Leave your Nano plugged into your computer for at least 4 hours to charge.
Unplug your iPod Nano when charging is complete.
Charge an iPod Without the Charger
Many iPod owners purchase a charging unit that plugs into a standard wall outlet to recharge the iPod's battery.
However, the iPod wall charger is not included with new purchases, so consumers must either purchase a separate charger or find a way to charge their iPod using other means.
Here's a simple method to charge your iPod using your computer.

Plug the iPod USB cable into the bottom of your iPod.
Plug the other end of the iPod USB cable into a free USB port on your Mac or PC computer.

Open the iTunes program by clicking on the icon in the Dock on a Mac or using the Start menu on a PC.
Click on the name of your iPod under the "Devices" heading in the main iTunes window.
Click on the "Sync" button to synchronize your iPod with your computer data.
While the iPod is syncing, the power from the USB port on your computer will charge your iPod's battery.

Unplug your iPod from the computer once the battery is fully charged.

This one should be ok.

My ipod wont charge


Hello, welcome to Fixya!

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.

Regards.

Ipod player wont charge ipod


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.

Horizontal lines have appeared on the screen?


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.

Thankyou

Apple ipod not getting charged


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.
