Question about Apple iPod mini M9160LL/A MP3 Player

Cutting off after playing 5 secs or so of ANY song

I had problems with my ipod mini after only 3 months and sent it back to be repaired. Over 14 months after receiving the repaired ipod i've only now got round to re-loading music from itunes.... since then screen has frozen and had to re-set - have also reset to factory settings etc etc - NOW it will only play a few seconds of ANY song and cut out - ie re-boot, apple sign appears and then comes back on again. Im thinking it might be something to do with how I uploaded the songs...?

If it doesn't powercycle when it's plugged into a charger, it's a battery issue. If it does powercycle even when connected to the charger, press the play button as it's starting up, to get it to force connect and then run a restore in itunes if that fails your logic board is broken. There is a company in new york thatcarries a parts for the ipod mini : Apple Repair NYC

IPOD mini won't play purchased music unless 100% charged

I've called Apple support on this before. They told me to make sure that the Ipod is set for Manually manage music in the Ipod settings of ITunes. You should restore all software in your IPod to factory settings before doing this.

IPod mini battery dies when nearly fully charged, often while skipping songs.

iPod batteries are cheap on ebay...like $5...and come with installation instructions. Try installing a new battery and see what happens...?

Songs will not play!

I AM THE ANTIMAC! (Get a Zune - or any other generic mp3 player)
Hrrmm, could it be the file format? iPod plays m4a files, so if they're wma or something like that, it won't work. Have you played the current songs on it before with any luck? Did it stop in the middle of a song, at the end of a song or did it not work at all? With what method did you get the music on there? Download (Free/at cost?), Ripped from CD (What format? Using what program?).

Ipod

Try restoring the ipod, this will erase all music from your ipod so make sure its backed up. it erases all of your ipods software and reinstalls it this will almost definitly fix your problem. if it doesnt, than the problem may be mechanical

contact me if my solutions doesnt work as hoped, or for further help.

The coby speaker accident

Make sure you back up all songs on the GoGear before attempting this solution.

1) Back up all files on the GoGear
2) Open up Philips Device Manager (Start --> All Programs --> Philips)
3) Click on the Repair Tab, and look for a msg that says connect the player while holding the volume + button
4) Disconnect the GoGear from the computer and turn the GoGear off - hold in the volume + button and continue to hold it as you reconnect the GoGear to the computer; after holding the volume + button for up to 20 or 30 seconds, a window will open up saying that your device is being repaired (now you can let go of the volume + button); after the repair is successfully complete, your GoGear will be good as new

Now you can do the firmware upgrade that will prevent this problem from occuring in the future. Open up Philips Device Manager and click the Update tab. This problem was caused because most GoGear's were designed for Windows XP with Media Player 10 (which is no longer the latest standard).
