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.

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 reset:support.apple.com/kb/HT1339
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: rupertgee.wordpress.com/2007/12/02/downgraderestore-ipod-touch-firmware-to-version-111-using-os-x/ this might even work on ipod classic - you've got nothing to loose); also have a look at Apple's updates: apple.com/support/downloads/
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.
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.
try the hard reset: press menu button and action button for 5 sec together while it is plugged into the charger. if that doesn't work you need a new logic board. you can try to do it yourself: iPod classic repair guide.
turn the lock button on and then off again then hold the MENU and the CENTER buttons down AT THE SAME TIME FOR 30 SECONDS and see what happens, it may need a new battery which bye the way you have to have Apple replace.
Hi what seemed to happen here is your HDD drive got wet and crashed. Yes take it back. Next time this happens the second it gets wet put it in a bowl of white rice. The rice absorbs the liquid and all better. But this time you can't do it. But yes take it back.
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.
