IPod with multiple problems

I got a brand new iPod back in 2006 in Best Buy. When that iPod started giving problems (freezing very often), I went with my warranty to get it fix and I was told that I would recieve a brand new iPod. What I got was a refurbished iPod that's giving me the same problem with freezing, but not only that, itturns on and off by itself and everytime it freezes I press the Menu and center button to unfreez it and I repate the same step mulitple times and it always syas that it needs to be restored. When I try to restore it, it will freez, turn off and will not turn back on and it finishes restoring it will not download my songs, it will only get 5 songs. How can this be fixed?

I have water damage to my Apple iPod Touch, I have a warranty, but I don't want to go through the process of them fixing it

Unfortunately, your warranty only covers factory defects. What you are looking for is Insurance on the device, which in turn, would cover water damage and other accidents.

I am afraid your Warranty will not cover the repairs or replacement of your iPod.

3 red rings displayed. system started freezing, now there is no activity.

I would first unplug your xbox and then plug it back in. If that does not fix the three red lights, then you have the Red Ring of Death as it is called. This problem occurs when there is some sort of overheating or hardware failure. Your best bet is to send your Xbox into Microsoft to get it fixed. If your warranty is still active this will fix it. If your warranty no longer exists your best bet would be to find a local shop that can fix it or buy a new xbox (they have pretty much eliminated the RRD). Hope this helps.

My ipod went black and now wont power back on or charge?

Your iPod battery is most likely dead.
You can either:
  1. Go to the Apple Store and if your device is less than 1 year old, get it replaced on the spot (its part of their warranty)
  2. Go to the Apple Store and get it fixed for a fee.
  3. Go to the Apple Store and tell them you will give them your old iPod and buy a new one for 10% off.

Ipod Classic 80 GB problem. screen is blank. PSP warranty

  1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
  2. Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.
Tip: If you are having difficulty resetting your iPod, set it on a flat surface. Make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel, and not near the center.
If the above steps did not work, try connecting iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep.
if nothing happens post me a msg , i'll try further steps to help u

My ipod has a blank white screen how do i fix it

if your ipod is within a year of purchase it's still under warranty. return it to apple and they will replace it.
or if it is within 30 days return it to the retailer and take your receipt and they may just give you a new one.
It sounds like the LCD went bad, it happens and apple is aware of these issues so try and get it replaced.
If you don't want to do the warranty thing, go onto ebay and buy a screen for it and do a search on youtube for a "take apart" video for your model.

Good luck

My new ipod pink nano 8gb keeps freezing

First you have a bad port on computer you probably need to plug your cable in the back of the computer. If you keep letting your ipod freeze like that your going to seriously mess it up. I'm going to teach you a way to fix your problem with freezing. the next time your ipod freezes hold the "MENU" and "CENTER" button at the same time. After that you need to take your ipod and restore it through iTunes. Please rate this response I would like to know if I helped.

Ipod nano hard drive frozen?


If its under warranty then please get it replaced or buy an extended warranty(if its warranty is about to expire). I am sorry but there is no other way to get it fixed as this is not a software issue.

Please revert for any clarifications

60GB ipod from best buy online as refurbished

Hello cslp,

I believe that you purchased the item online (based on the title of the post) but I am confused about your listing the product "as refurbished." Best Buy stores and the website do not sell refurbished iPods. We only sell new items, which I believe you item is new based on the fact that you say it was in a sealed box.

If you purchased the iPod from a Best Buy store you can get a full refund or exchange on the item within 30 days of purchase as long as you have the receipt and as long as the product is in new and resellable condition. If you purchased the product from then you can likewise make a return within 30 days or receiving the product.

If for some reason you are past the 30 day return period, there is a one-year manufacturers warranty on iPods. Your local Best Buy store should be assisting you in having the unit sent out for service under the warranty as long as the unit is under warranty.

Best Regards
"Go Ahead. Use Us."

IPod touch freezes

Hello! This problem is if you messed around with your iPod Touch a lot like hacking it. I hacked it before so I restored it so now it is very good! It is now version 1.1.2. Okay, if you want to fix this problem, hold the home button and the power button for 20-30 seconds until a yellow exclamation mark shows up to tell you to connect to iTunes, this worked for my friend's screwed up iPod Touch. Try this method okay? After you connected it to iTunes, check for updates right away and there you go!

Hope this works!
