iPod doesn't want to turn off
I've a simple question, my Ipod just doesn't want to turn off on its own, indeed, after use, the light is just fading but the device never turns off, until the battery is totally empty.
I tried to do it manually with the common proposed way ( lock/unlock, hold the menu button for 6/8 seconds), but this doesn't work :-(
I also tried to reset it (I mean restore) with itunes (this works, and during this operation, it turned off, then on).
Apple store said that it's too old (2006) to be repaired and just proposed 10% discount for a brand new one (thank you guys! :-S)
beside this, it works perfectly.
If anybody can propose a solution...
Thank you in advance
PS: there was a reportage about ifixit website, on a french national channel a couple of weeks ago!
really cool :-)
David, the iPod doesn’t really get turned on or off in general terms. Instead it really only goes to sleep or is awake. I do know that you can force it to go to sleep, by holding down the play/pause button. To hold down the Menu and Center button for a reset. Here is what Apple say "When playing music, iPod sleeps after the amount of time set in the "Sleep Timer" preferences. The default setting for this feature is to never sleep or Off. If you set the timer to go off after a certain amount of time, iPod sleeps after that time has lapsed. The preference is then reset to its default of Off. You will need to reset it to an amount of time if you wish it to go to sleep again. The sleep timer feature can be accessed in the "Extras" section of the iPod main menu." If it works in restore, that means that it most likely is not hardware related. Try to restore with a different version firmware. You can get those from here Hope this helps, good luck.
