iPod not connecting to computer or charger
my ipod classic 160gb just stopped connecting to the computer it doesn't show up, bearly charges even in the wall
i leave it in the computer all night without it saying connected or even charging, to have it charged in the morning, iv tryd many different cables i know my way around the computer so i dont think its that (but the truth is who knows?) i went through the device manager many times and nothing (and also if it was the computer why wouldnt it charge in the wall?)
if tryd putting it to disk mode and still same,
the ipod otherwise is working fine
please give me some addvice on how to get my ipod to start responding again!
mend, the very first thing I would start with to clean the dock connector. Use some compressed air, isopropyl alcohol and a small non-metallic pick i.e. toothpick. Make sure that your pins are not corroded, bend or broken. If all that checks out okay and you still have problems, replace the battery. It is possible that the battery is at the end of its lifespan. Not a terribly difficult job, follow this guide Installing iPod Classic Battery and you can get the battery from here iPod Classic (Thin) Replacement Battery as well as many other places. Hope this helps, good luck.
