Sounds dead to me. My best advise is to sell it on eBay, be honest about the problems because buyers can bite you in to **** if you aren't, take that money and buy a refurbished one direct from apple.com with the same warrenty that a new one has. You can find out more about the warrenty on apple.com/store and scroll all the way to the bottom left of the page. You can get anything from a shuffle to an itouch for alot less. Good luck

Check that the IPOD is fully charged. Plug it in to the charger and you should see the screen telling you how much charge it has. Check the slider on the top of the iPod. If it's a Classic iPod there is a switch to prevent accidental turning off or on. Slide the switch to the left and try again.

The Batteries in these units like all rechargeable batteries only have a certain number of times they can be charged and discharged before begining to fail. Your only option is to replace the battery with a new one. They are cheap to purchase off eBay and YouTube has Videos detailing how to change them.

Hey my ipod touch all of a sudden stopped charging. ive left it like that for awhile and now it wont even turn on HELP!


You will need to plug it into the computer. After you plug it in make sure it recognizes it. If it doesnt then hate to tell you, but it crashed on you. If it does recognize it then your good. Leave it connected to the PC to charge. when it is fully charged, RESTORE IT. ITS A MUST. and then plug it back in and it will be fine

Doesnt turn on.


This same thing happened to me. I was playing fantastic contraption and my ipod screen just went black and wouldnt turn back on. When I plugged it in to a charger, it made that charging noise, but wouldnt turn on. SOLUTION: try holding in the sleep/wake(power) button, and the home button at the same time for about 15 seconds or until you see the white apple logo. That worked for me, hope you get it fixed.

Ipod 30gb battery shuts off in 30 minutes


your issue could be one of 2 things.
Either your battery is becoming old and needs to be replaced or your mainboard is malfunctioning and causing the low battery signal.

If you have your music library backed up in iTunes, I would connect the iPod and restore the firmware. You can accomplish this by pressing the restore button in itunes.

If your battery is more than 2 years old, replace it and see if the problem goes away,

Ipod shows its connected when not plugged in


Take the hold switch and turn it on, then off. After this press the center button along with the Play/Pause button and it should reset your iPod. This may solve the problem.
