Apple ipod 30gb video

Hi
My ipod just stopped yesterday saying no battery. I tried to charge it and nothing happened the screen is just black. I have a bose docking system so put it in there, nothing. Then the screen came up saying low battery please charge and the green charge at top right hand corner was full (ie fully charged) now the screen is black and I can't get anything have held down the menu and middle button but nothing. The screen when I have replaced it into the dock very barely changes colour. I have just replaced it into the dock again and have a totally white screen with nothing on it all. Please can someone help me. Thank you

    if it is not that??? how difficult is it to change a battery please

  • Abellea May 01, 2008

    Hi I don't think it is dead at all. I am sure it is charged. It is in the dock now and is just a completely white screen. If I take it out I am sure it will go to black. I have done the restore but nothing happens.

    I have put the apple charger on and i get absolutely nothing (just a black screen) nothing at all. If it is a case of a new battery how easy is that to install yourself please?

Hi,

Normally, an iPod's battery needs to be replaced for every 18 months. Probably it is a sign now !!

In case your iPod is no longer covered by the warranty and you want to find a second repairing company, you can try iPodResQ or ifixit at your own risk

    Few steps you can try:

    Leave it plugged in for a little while, it might be so dead it doesn't have enough power to do anything else.



    If it's still not doing anything, try reseting it by turning the hold
    button on then off then holding the Menu and Center buttons until you
    see an apple logo, then try to plug it back in again.

    some times if the battery is completely drained it will require a
    little time before it responds to being connected to a power source.



    If that fails, toggle the hold switch back and fourth and then press the center button and hold button repeatidly



    If that fails, you may need to restore it.



    www.apple.com/support/ipod



    choose your ipod type and then choose the 5 r's, the last step is the
    resore option. This will completely reset your ipod back to factory
    settings, unfortunately all the songs on it will be lost and need to be
    reloaded.



    If that fails you can call Apple tech support 1-800-275-2273

The recharge time on a fully discharged battery is 6 to 10x the discharge time. so, if that battery was good for 2 hours, the recharge could take 12 to 20 hours..sit back and see how it goes.

Bose Sound Dock remote control - only volume works


My remote worked perfectly until I changed the battery. The original battery was CL 2032 and I replaced it with DL 2032. After replacing the battery, only the volume control works. The off button will only fade the sound while the button is depressed. Release the button, and the volume returns to the original level and the unit remains On.
None of the other buttons work.

New ipod nano not compatable with bose docking


This is true. The new iPod nano is not compatible with the original SoundDock. This only means that it won't charge the iPod's power. Audio should be okay. This is an Apple issue. They changed the way almost all of their iPods charge (except the iPod classic). Bose can upgrade the SoundDock for their normal repair fee of $99. This would also you a new 1 year warranty.

Sounddock 1 :No sound unless I push down on the iPod


Turn the sound dock over and you will see the connection for the iPod is on a separate piece of plastic, almost looks like it has been bolted onto the main bit. It means a connection will be loose between these two parts in some way. Contact Bose to get this serviced.

Bose docking statoin


They both use the same speakers, my personal opinion deems they are both the same. However the second SoundDock charges via USB pin, so it is future proof for future iPods.
