Bleg: iPod

The only Apple product I own has locked up. The iPod classic just shows the opening screen. The buttons do nothing and I cannot shut it off. No powering it down and no battery to remove. How do I fix this?

And USB to computer does nothing.

Update: All better now.

    Fix it with a hammer. If that doesn’t work, get a bigger hammer.

    So tell us! What’d you do to fix it?

    Center Button + Menu held for 5-10 seconds usually reboots mine nicely when it gets stuck…

    Honestly, If you have had it more then a year its surprising you dont already know this trick. When I had my Nano I had to do it almost once a week.

    That’s the iDead mode.

    No accessible reset button? No visible screws so you can remove the battery? iPod firmware not done until it doesn’t sync with Amarok?

    Don’t ask me why I’m a Mac hater.

    There is this repair outfit in Texas that fixed mine when it did the same thing, the screen interface connection went bad, new screen and a new battery while they had it apart for about 90 bucks.

    Thanks, Dave…mine just went wacky as well and that seems to have revived it…

    That was Skynet downloading……

    The center button and menu button trick should do it.What I have noticed with my older Ipod If I leave in my truck overnight in the cold it wont fire up until after I hold by the heater vent for alittle while.

    That’s what happens when you turn 40.

    Advanced electronic shit just stops working in your presence and makes you feel stupid.

    ^heh heh

  13. Mycroft Says:

    +1 to MSgt B.

    I believe you’re supposed to soak it in kool-ade overnight…

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
