Usb recharging does not work

Hello,

I have problem with my video iPod. It just stoped to recharge via usb. It is completely ran out of energy and I lost my wall recharger. So the only way that left was to recharge it via usb port. But it does not work any more. There is no feedback from iPod at all when I plug it into usb. No regarging, no message on the display it just stays black. Can you help me with this?

Thanks

Mike

I have seen this many times. Your battery is most likely depleted to the point that it is incapable of sending a signal to the computer. You will more than likely need to have you battery replaced. You can jump start your iPod with a wall charger, but you lost yours. A simple charger can be bought off of eBay for less than ten dollars. If you get a wall charger and nothing happens, your iPod is dead but it sounds like a battery issue.

My philips gogear vibe wont turn on


Reset your GoGear with something sharp like the tip of a pen or the end of a paper clip,

if you're device isn't working properly or there's a frozen display.


Insert the sharp object into the "Reset" hole (located at the bottom of the player), and hold it there until the device turns off.


If resetting the device does nothing to restore the display, access the "Philips Device Manager" through your computer to recover the GoGear.


Click "Start" on your computer, then "Programs," "Philips Digital Audio Player," "Aria Device Manager," and then "Philips Device Manager."


This will launch the "Philips Device Manager." Make sure the GoGear is turned off completely. Connect your GoGear to your computer while holding down the "Volume Up" button.


Continue to hold the "Volume Up" button on your GoGear, until the "Philips Device Manager" recognizes the device and enters recovery mode.


Click the "Repair" button when it appears on your computer, then folow the steps to fully recover the GoGear.


Properly disconnect your GoGear from your computer and restart the device.


Recharge your device if your GoGear dies suddenly while playing.

Connect the GoGear to your computer via the supplied USB cord.


Plug one end of the USB cord into a functional, open USB port on your computer. Plug the free, smaller end of the USB cord firmly into the small USB jack on your GoGear and turn your computer on.

This will begin the charging process of your GoGear.


If recharging doesn't work, the battery may need to be replaced.

Check that your GoGear isn't in standby mode. Hold the "Power" button for two seconds to turn it back on.


hope this helps

Tip

The iPod USB Charger


<p>The USB cable that came with all iPod has two purposes: to your device to your computer so you can update and add music, and iPod to charge. All iPods have a lithium ion battery stops charging when the battery is full, the total life of your battery is not affected if you leave the iPod is connected to a power source. It usually takes four hours to recharge most iPods. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Connect the USB connector into an available high-power USB 2.0 port on your computer. Low-power USB ports, such as those in external keyboards and hubs do not work. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Connect the 30-pin connector at the other end of the USB cable 30-pin connector on your iPod. If you charge an iPod shuffle, there is no dock connector port. Instead, use the connector on the other end of USB cable that fits in the headset. Set the iPod down and let it recharge. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Unplug the USB cable when the iPod battery indicator is full. If you charge an iPod shuffle, the green light will appear. <br />

How to recharge ematic esport clip using USB cable


You can charge it connected to your computer or buy an adapter that you can plug in the outlet for an mp3 player.
It comes with a USB to recharge on PC, you cannot recharge in iPod stand. I believe iPod has the market on this.

It say do not disconnect


Thank you for contacting Fixya Support.

In a case where you are receiving a Do not disconnect message and freezes in that state even if you disconnect your iPod, the usual remedy is to allow your iPod's battery to completely drain. Then connect the iPod back to your computer and allow it to completely recharge. At that point, connect it to iTunes and perform a restore,

A restore will restore your iPod back to its original factory settings, but once it does, you will have your iPod back and should also be able to restore your iPod back to one its previous backups via iTunes.

Try this procedure and let me know if this helps.

Regards,

My ipod won't charge. keeps saying "please wait. very low battery" what's wrong with it?


I had the same problem. Went to the Apple store and the technician said that the IPOD battery ran down to low (battery level showed red) and the USB port on the computer was not strong enough to recharge it. He used a rechargeable adapter that pluged directly into the wall (adapter cost about $30) and recharged it enough for me to take it home and recharge it on my computer.He said to never let the battery level drop below 5% unless you are going to recharge it using the adapter that pluged into the wall. I bought an IPOD rechargeable travel kit from Target for $20 and used it to recharge my IPOD. My IPOD works fine now. The Technician also said at some point the battery will need to be replaced (in a year or two depends). Will cost about $59 to replace it (don't quote me on the timeframe or price of replacement, this may have been just for my IPOD but thought this would be useful info for someone.

Wont power up


Same unit, same problem. I found that when the internal batt is dead current draw on the USB port is not enough to recharge. I have a USB car adaptor (it is for my kids PSP ) and use it to recharge the batt when it goes completly dead. I keep a eye on the remaining batt life and charge it via the computer USB before it gets to low

Ipod wont recharge


Try a regular AC wallcharger. You can get one on Ebey for under $10.00 with shipping. I have had similar problems and this seemed to solve it when the battery had completely discharged.
