Re: my ipod photo won't turn off!

The VA Canteen store at the VA I work at got in a bunch of these Ipod's and they had the same problem. It turned out they where overcharged and in this state they will not turn off. Apple tech support said just to cycle the battery through a full charge cycle and that should fix the problem.

Hi guys,

This is really interesting as I'm trying to find out why my 2 week old 80gb vide ipod won't shut off.

It won't shut off when I change the album and play the first track (it's like the harddrive isn't ready and when the harddrive stops quietly whirring after about 10 seconds it will shut off). Also, when i turn the ipod on after a couple of days of not using it and it's loading up, it won't turn off until the harddrive stops (about 10 seconds).

Is this normal or is my ipod a bad one??? It really wrroes me cause I've just spent £220 on it.

My iPod would do everything but shut off. It just sat there draining my battery. I'm glad yo say that after holding down the center and menu button it reset and everything works as good as new. Thanks for the help.

Re: my ipod photo won't turn off!

Does iPod (30gb w/ video) shut off on its own if it's left playing untouched or does it just keep playing until the battery is drained?

my ipod photo won't turn off!

My iPod is kind of old, i got it 2 years ago. Sometime last year this problem happened and I charged it into an outlet and it fixed itself. But the same problem just happened to me today, nothing makes it turn off unless I dock it on my iHome and itll turn off then but besides that nothing works, WHAT DO I DO!?

Re: my ipod photo won't turn off!

Mine wouldn't turn off after I had it plugged into my docking station for a couple of weeks, I think as someone else replied on this forum that I had overcharged it.
I let the charge run right down, which only took a few hours as it wouldn't turn off and then recharged it using my apple plug and it turns off fine now by pressing the play/pause button.
I think the answer is don't overcharge it through a docking station as it doesn't seem to like it. Good Luck.

The VA canteen store at the VA hospital I work at sold a bunch of this model iPod. A bunch of people had the same problem a call was put into Apple and they where told it was because the units where over charged. It is sort of a self correcting problem, just leave them on. I fail to understand why Apple didn't incorporate a battery management chip into these devices for this voltage/current range such chips are tiny, I am sure they could have found a place for them on the control board in these things.

Re: my ipod photo won't turn off!

There are at least two diff probs here. 1) Ipod is hung and won't respond to turn off signal (pressing bottom of wheel) at all. This happens sometimes when, for example, your ipod is connected to a docking device and you turn it off while pressing bottom of wheel wheel - then you immediately unplug it the ipod, which lights it up again -- sometimes it will won't then respnod to a a shut off signal by pressing bottom of wheel. This prob has been recurring on opds for years and can be fixed with a reset.

2) When you press the bottom of the wheel, the ipod turns off for about a half second or so and lights right back up again. This prob has an unknown cause and is not fixed by a reset. If you restore, the prob will be fixed UNTIL you reload you music files onto the Ipod - then the prob automatically returns. Some suspect this prob has to do with a file problem and ipod's inability to appropriately deal with the file problem.

my ipod nano won't turn off!

I've tried EvERY possible solution..mine will not register on my computer in i-tunes any more. So when ever i try that and give up i take my i-pod off and it wont get (do not disconnect) off it's screen. Then i get that to turn off eventually. My i-pod still works but im basically screwed because it will not Go Off so my battery just dies. Once i got it to reset after it crashed for a couple of months put the music on and lost it all when i reset it!!
grrr...i'm about to give up on it.
Anyone have advice that will work?

Re: my ipod photo won't turn off!

I'm currently having problems turning off my iPod Nano. I've tried resetting it (holding down Menu and the middle button), but that doesn't help. I've even tried restoring it to its factory settings. That doesn't help either. It's a first generation iPod Nano, so it's a year or two old.
Are there any other solutions?



Keira

@shawcable.net

Haha, as soon as I post this the iPod starts working again. Never mind!

Sometimes if the battery on an Ipod is overcharged it will cause this problem. Just let the thing run and it will discharge the battery enough for you to shut is down. In your efforts to shut it down the battery was ran down enough to let the CPU shut it down.
