Hello TerrieLyn,

If you have used different chargers / charge methods and the iPod is still not getting a charge you can probably rule out the charger as the cause of the problem. It sounds like there is something wrong with your iPod itself.

The most likely cause is a defective internal battery, but there could also be a problem with the charge circuitry or the charger port.

I'd suggest taking the unit into your local Apple store or the retailer that you purchased the iPod from. Depending on when you purchased the unit and whether or not you purchased any additional service plan coverage you may have to pay for any repair services.

Best Regards,
Ken

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.

How do I charge my iPod touch for the First Time


<p>Apple iPod touch is a personal audio player with the ability to store and play MP3 files, digital video and downloadable games and applications. The unit is powered by a rechargeable battery. When charging the battery for the first time, ensure that the battery is fully charged. From there you can turn it on or removing the device from the charger, if desired, regardless of battery level. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Enter the main connection for the iPod cable to the socket at the bottom of the iPod touch. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Insert the small plug into a USB port on your computer. Turn on the computer. Alternatively, an iPod charger, sold separately, you can recharge your iPod touch with a socket. Connect the wall charger into an AC outlet. Insert the plug on the door of the small wall charger.

I have an iPod 8GB i got in May 2 years ago. Over the last few months it will not charge when I plug it in. I got a new charger for it and it will charge my husbands i phone. Sometimes I can get it plugged...


Jeanette, The charger port on the iPod is most likely no longer fully connected to the internals, and it needs maintenance by a professional or just simply needs to be replaced. I would bring it to the Apple Store and have the employees at the Genius Bar look at it.

8GB Ipod touch, won't charge any more, won't take a charge from the computer USB or the wall charger? What to do?


It seems like your iPod's battery has outrun its use.
There are 3 options you can choose from:
  1. If it is less than a year old, you can go to the Apple Store and they will replace the device for free on the spot as part of their 1 year warranty.
  2. You can choose to pay someone at the Apple Store a fee to replace the battery if it is older than a year
  3. If you are looking to get a new iPod anyway, bring an old one into an Apple Store, tell them you are looking to buy a new one, and you will get 10% off.

When I Connect My Ipod Touch 8gb To My Computer It Wont Turn On And I Didnt Charge It For Like A Month What Should I Do Please Help Me!!!


You are right, it doesn't have enough power to turn on because the battery was drained. You're saying that it wont charge? It could only be the USB cable problem. Try to use a different iPod USB cable and check if it charges the iPod. Another thing is try to charge the iPod using the stand alone USB charger. Your iPod requires high power input. If that doesn't work, you may start to think that it is a battery failure.

Ipod doesnt work


I think I know just the problem. The connection cord that came with the wall outlet charger can only be used for charging. You have to have the original apple cord in order for the computer to recognize it.


I had the same problem.
