IPod Classic won't recharge


My husband's iPod classic seems to be unable to recharche. We know that the problem is not with the charger or wire because I also have an iPod and mine recharges fine with the same charger. I bought it to him last Christmas.

    I have an ipod classic 160 gig but keep gettin the error code 1439 wen i try to restore what should i do?

    Hi, now, when you restored your 80 gB classic, did you upgrade the firmware to 1.1.2?
    If so, do not.
    I refuse as my firmware 1.1.1 works the ipod great and the only trouble started (twice) on trying to update the firmware.
    Try a hard factory

    Then, charge fully with AC charger (this was recommended to me twice in an Apple store)

    After wards, use USB to connect to your computer and do not allow it to upgrade to 1.1.2

    (See incidental article about ipod touch: this might even work on ipod classic - you've got nothing to loose); also have a look at Apple's updates:

    This seemed to work for me:

    1. Download latest version of iTunes
    2. disconnect from internet (I did this by removing my wireless adapter).
    3. Put iPod into disk mode (hold select and play until display says "disk mode" at the top).
    4. Connect iPod to computer
    5. You should be prompted to restore, click yes.
    6. Message will appear saying can't connect to internet, do you want to restore to latest version "2.0.1" instead? (Something along those lines).
    7. It should start restoring and work this time.

    Hope this helps.

    Is it still on or does it stay frozen off? If it's still on and frozen, simple hold the top button and the home button at the same time and wait until it restarts and the apple logo will appear. Then if it does this again later on when using the iPod, do the same thing and plug it into the computer and do a full restore or upgrade.

    160 gb ipod classic won't recharge with the wall charger

    Try charging it on the computer or with a different wall charger. The fault may lie in the charger brick. I have seen it happen many times that the wall charger quits working but it still charges on the computer.

    Had the same problem with mine. Strip your ipod and you'll find that the left hand end of the battery has been rubbing against the mounting screw for the hold button and the positive track is exposed causing it to short out the battery. Placing a piece of plastic between the battery and the mounting screw sorts out the problem. My ipod charged and the battery still works fine. It seems to be a common problem with this model. If you want more details email me at
