iPod will not turn ON Ideas?
My ipod will not turn on and is not recognized by my pc or itunes. I have tried charging the battery and resetting the ipod as describe through apple's website. It just does nothing not even light up. Battery life was always exceptional. Ideas?
Mike, the first thing that I would do is to replace the battery. You can of course open it and check the connection of the battery and see if it is on. Also pay close attention to the actual connector, the 5th gen has an issue with the connector coming of the logic board :) step 5 of the guide. iPod 5th Generation (Video) Battery Replacement good luck and let us know what happened.
You may wish to try plugging it into your computer, opening up the Disk Utility app, and see if it shows up in the left hand pane. Go from there - it may be a software issue. My 80 GB 5th Generation iPod Classic showed a dead screen, and now I'm getting a faint 'Please wait - Very low battery' issue on the screen, so it's probably my battery, although I've basically only used it as a storage device - go figure.
