Question about Apple iPod MP3 Player

Ipod model MA079LL do not want to turn on

I have the Ipod model MA079LL, 20GB color display one that it does not want to turn-on at all and sometimes it does. The battery is fully charged. Sometimes when it turns on, it is empty, no songs show up, then sometimes the music is there. It is acting really creazy. Couple of time gave me a sad iPod icon with the apple support url. Right now came to live and it is working fine. But this behavior has been happing for a while. What do you recommend? I am going today to an apple store to check.

    I went to the Apple Store and told me that it was a hard drive issue. Thanks God it still had Apple Care Warranty, so they replaced it.

The power supply is showing on my screen

The battery icon displays when you have no battery power left. Connect your iPod to a charger. If the iPod will not charge you'll need to buy a new battery.

My 20 g ipod wont turn on and it has a picture of a battery with a lightning bolt

When an ipod battery is flat it needs to be charged for a while before it will turn on. Depending on how flat the battery is it may take up to half an hour. If the battery is too old it may not be able to hold a charge at all.

Can't use my ipod 20gb

Can you charge it? If so fully charge it and then connect it to the computer and reset/rebot the ipod and see if that helps, if you can't charge it just do the same thing.

IF the IPOD 20G does not turn of, charge it continually for 1 day.
IF it does not turn on after 1 day charge then the battery may need replacement.

Will not turn on

If the sad face appears on your ipod, it means it is broken. It needs to be taken into Apple to have it repaired or you might have to buy a new one.

Ipod just pauses

This can be caused by the audio jack, if it doesn't sit tight anymore, the headphone becomes disconnected for small periods of time causing the iPod to detect the headphone as unplugged, hence it will pause. If you're out of warranty you can send it to a third party iPod Repair Service.
