Re: Ipod Mini Won't Charge

Seriously I'm not a real Ipod fan i know i might be in the wrong thread, but i have a phillips gogear mp3 player and i never had problems with it! I am so happy i did not choose an Ipod 4 years ago - cuz my friend did and she had a new one in between and this one is again already broken ....

Re: Ipod Mini Won't Charge

SO happy to find this. YES, it wouldn't charge and I turned it OFF, then ON, then held the PLAY (top of the circle) and the select (Middle of circle) for about 10 seconds and the Apple appeared, and it started charging again. We are back in business!!! Thank goodness. I have had this almost 4 years and it never had to be reset. I hear perhaps radioshack can replace the internal battery too??

reply to Need BB
My mini, will charge on my wall charger, but is not being recognized by my computer and when I plug it in to the computer USB, it shows the charger frozen halfway.

I want to access my music and change some of it but I can't get it to appear in itunes at all.

Plus I have tried the magic reset trick at least a dozen times and nothing....does the ipod have to have some battery charge to do this?

reply to Need BB
hi! i have an 8 gig ipod, and just flips on and off by itself till it kills the battery. pluging it in my computer results in ipod shown for a few secs and then the ipod restarts itself thus disappearing from my pc. tried the reset thing - nothing. it flips off, then on, and i can acces some music from it, but then it just restarts again.

Ipod Mini Won't Charge

If your iPod Mini won't charge here's how to fix that problem. It may needed a reset.

On your ipod mini, toggle the hold button (turn it on and then turn it off), then hold the Menu and the select button (top part of the click wheel and the center button) for about 10 seconds. The Apple logo should appear and your ipod will start charging.

This worked for me and I appreciate all the help from others!

well my ipod hasnt charged for about 24 hours. and its fully dead? what should i do?

reply to Need BB
I have a mini and also a classic 80gb and neither will charge from any of my car chargers, but they will charge from a home charger or usb. I have tried resetting, but that doesn't work. I even restored the mini back to original and still nothing.

Any ideas?
