Temperature is a huge factor in the battery life of an ipod. Excessive heat and cold can kill a battery almost instantly in some cases. A 20GB is a bit antique anyways and even if you fix the battery, the hard dive is sure to follow. Hard drives are only designed to last about five years and then then wear out. I would recommend an update but you can try fixing the battery.

My ipod says www.apple.com/support/ipod, not charging too


Hello :

Check the power cord or the charger first . If they both work fine , then the problem will be the battery . When a battery is dead it can't be recharged anymore . If you found that the battery is fine also , then the problem will be hardware failure . Take it to the service for hardware failure . If they couldn't solve the problem , then you need new device .

good luck .

The battery of my iPod is not charging


<p>When you buy an iPod, the device comes with cables that connect the charging device to the computer. When the iPod battery is low, you can recharge by plugging into your desktop or laptop. But sometimes, when you connect your iPod to your computer, the battery charger. According to Apple's site, some problems may prevent your iPod from charging properly. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Connect your iPod USB charging cable only one USB port on the computer itself. External port devices, such as a USB hub, do not provide enough power to recharge your iPod. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Connect the iPod firewire charging only one firewire port on your computer. Like USB, Firewire ports are not enough of a load to the battery of your iPod. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Disconnect the computer from sleep when the computer set to sleep after a certain time. An iPod can only load on a computer that is connected and not in sleep mode. To enable sleep mode on most computers, you can move the mouse or press the power button once. Hold the power button, which usually turns off the computer. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Turn the iPod off and on when the unit is frozen. A frozen iPod is not charging. If the unit is still frozen when you turn it on again, restart the iPod by pressing the "Hold" switch to "On" and then back to "Off" and press and hold a "Menu" and "Select" buttons simultaneously or " Start "and" Menu "button. Hold the buttons until the Apple logo appears on the screen. <br /> <p><br /> <p>5. Set the system up-to-iPod charger so that when using a Windows 2000 computer. In preparation for the system to load the iPod device to the unit with the charging cable, launch iTunes and "iPod" in the left pane to "Settings" tab to go, check the box next to "Enable Disk use", and click the "Apply" button. Once the configuration is in place, the iPod will charge as normal. <br />

Apple 20gb ipod mp3 player wont turn on. only shows apple sign and says apple/support


This happens quite often but does not necessarily mean that your iPod needs service.

Launch itunes first, (not by plugging in ipod and allowing to launch automatically.)
Then, plug in ipod. After you see it load into itunes, you can use the ipod restore function. You'll lose your music but you it will restore all of it after it resets.

Ipod 3rd Generation


Test the hard drive by holding menu+centre to reset and immediatly holding left+centre when it reboots to enter the ipod diagnostic menu. Use the right arrow to highlight the Memory or HDD menu. Select it and you should be able to find out if the drive is dead.

If the drive is ok, try restoring the ipod through itunes.


Post back here if the drive is wrecked.

Apple Ipod 20gb re-set problem


My ipod did this. That symbol means corrupted files which probably means you need to format your ipod. Mine also continued to freeze which is caused by a slightly warped harddrive. Open it up by prying loose the edges w/ a guitar pick or butter knife, take a business card and fold it in half and place it between the HDD and the foam to add pressure to the HDD. Should fix your problem.
