Anytime your iPod's mechanical functionality is not where it should be, the easiest way to restore the device's button operations, is to either perform a restore

Or attempt to reset your iPod:
• Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
• Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 10 seconds. If it does not work the first time, you may have to repeat this process.

To acquire more troubleshooting options to regain operational capacity of your iPod Classic,
I have included the link from Apple for your model of iPod.

iPod (5th Gen) Troubleshooting Assistant

These processes should help restore the button functions on your iPod Classic.

I hope this helps. If it does not, please feel free to reply back to this post, I am always glad
to assist.

My iPod classic (30GB) keeps showing "do not


Try holding down the menu/center button for at least 10-15 seconds, if that does not reset it try the center button and play/pause combo for the same time period (I used to have the same model as you, one of these 2 combos usually worked).

You can also try connecting your ipod to another computer with iTunes on it to see if its a software or hardware problem with your iPod. Or you can uninstall/reinstall iTunes and see what happens after a fresh install

and yea you can let the battery run out overnight if you want, but if you do get to fix it I'd say back up your music on the iPod through a program like iDump or something in the meantime

I want to know which generation is the Ipod 30G model A1136, thanks


There are two 5th gen iPods, A1136 model is the older 2005 model, not the later 2006 model.

Here is Apples link: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1353#ipodfifth2 which will show the differences, but not by model number. The reason I know this model number is the first 5th gen 2005 is because I have one. Also older 2005 should have '2005' engraved on rear.

Ipod classic works but no sound


This is common among the 30gb Video iPods. If you play your iPod on a Dock,
such as a iHome or other speaker device, for some reason, they like to take the
Mainboard out. Normally, if it's a headphone jack, the problem will start with
sound only playing on one side of the Headphones.

As a start, you can replace the headphone jack and see if it corrects your problem.
If not, you will need to replace the mainboard in your iPod.

Can't remember password


I had the same problem. And I coudn't remember my SCREEN LOCK Password as your son. So what I did was I just disconnecteed my IPOD while it was connected to itunes without properly ejecting. This method doesn't retrieve or resets the password, it justs opens your ipod out of the screen lock. so your son can hear his music as usual until he can get a password retreive helper.

Apple iPod Model A1136, 30 GB.


First make sure your hold switch isn't on. It's on the top or bottom and slides back and forth. It needs to be switched to the left. Once it is to the left, here's how you reset:

You can reset your ipod by holding down the menu and select (round button in the center) buttons down for at least 10 seconds. You'll see an apple logo flash, that's when you stop pressing the buttons. It will shut off, then back on.
