I think your ipod is dead. This happened to me to. I was listening to it when I arrived at my destination, and I thought I turned it off and I put it in my pocket. Later that day when I went to listen to it, it wouldn't turn on at all. Aparently, it had stayed on. Hold the pause button for five to ten seconds. The apple symbol will appear on your ipod. Immeadility put it in your docking station before it goes away. Your ipod will turn on, and itwill start charging.

I hope this helps. Please rate my solution.

First thing to try is a reset

To reset your iPod:

  • 1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
  • 2. Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 10 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.

check your warranty
then here is the online service assistant

If you don't have warranty and the repairs would cost too much at apple

My 30gb video ipod won't turn on...Nothing happens!


It sounds like there's something wrong with the hard drive. You might have a dud, in which case I would call apple ASAP to see what they can do for you, but just make sure it's charged! Sometimes with electronics like this, no lights will come on or anything until it has enough battery life to support that sort of thing.. other than that, my only advice is to call a professional on this one.. sorry :/

Sounds like the ipod may be dead. When you plug it into the computer does it stay blank, nothing ever comes up on the screen?

Ipod touch v2 stuck at itunes connect


your ipod was jailbroken and now it is not.
no worries, go to quickpwn.com

Download the quickpwn software and jailbreak your ipod.
It's pretty easy,

but first what I would do, is download the itouch firmware version you want to restore to.
the file name will be something like this: iPod1,1_2.0_5A347_Restore.ipsw

Put your ipod in DFU mode:
Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} Plug the usb cable into the Ipod and NOT into the computer.
Hold the Home Button down for 5 second (do not release it)
Then Press and hold the Power Button for approx 10 secs (count them out)
Your iPod will reboot.
Release the power button and continue holding the Home button for an additional 27secs.
You may see the screen go blank or not.
Plug the USB end into the computer with itunes open.
Your ipod will mount in recovery mode.
Restore it by pressing Restore and Shift at the same time. This will allow you to select the ipod firmware you downloaded.
Restore it and then do your jailbreak.
It will ask for the same firmware version you just restored to.
find it on your computer and do the J/B
I have the firmware on my computer, shoot me an email and i will send it,just let me know if you have a 1st Gen or 2nd Gen

Ipod clikcing noise


My son's unit did the same thing. I was told it was the hard drive, so I replaced the hard drive and battery and now it is good as new. (Replacing the hard drive is really quite easy if you carefully follow the instructions that come with the kit and have the right Ipod cover removal tools that also came with the kit. I bought mine at Apricorn.com and was very happy. Not inexpensive, but cheaper then having Apple do it. I also upgraded his 30gb Gen 5 to a 60gb while I was at it.)
