My iPOD class (last generation) shuts off when jostled--like what
happens when the headphones come out.  Is there any fix for this?

I finally resolved my problem after spending way too much time on it. I simply handed my 160GB iPod to my husband to put his fav Stones & Beatles songs on and I went back to my 80GB Microsoft Zune which has never disappointed me.
After spending so much time trying to figure this out I did finally take it back to Apple Store who performed a diagnostic and found there was a problem with the device. They replaced it with a refurbished one which has similar issues. All I wanted to do was listen to my music. Was that too much to ask? So I am happy to be free of this problematic device. No more Apple for me!!

  • Ipod Classic will not shut off

    Ipod classic will not shut off. Have held menu/select until apple logo appears, no change

    Menu/Select is to reset the device, not turn it off. You need to press and hold the Play/Pause button until the display turns off.  Then activate the hold switch.

  • I have an I Pad 1 with 64 gigs. It constantly drops me off the Internet for no apparent reason. Is there any fix for this problem?

    My I Pad 1 constantly drops me off the Internet and programs. Is there any fix for this problem?  It started after the last update and continues to get worse.

    First, try a system reset.  It cures many ills and it's quick, easy and harmless...
    Hold down the on/off switch and the Home button simultaneously until you see the Apple logo.  Ignore the "Slide to power off" text if it appears.  You will not lose any apps, data, music, movies, settings, etc.

    Looking up definitions on the screen using Apple Dictionary? What application? Using shift+command+4, capture what you are referring to, and then use the camera icon in this posting toolbar to include it in your response.

  • I have a Office Jet Pro L7780. When I try to print red, the color comes out brown

    I have a Office Jet Pro L7780. When I try to print red, the color comes out brown. I have tried replacing all of the ink cartridges, printing from within two different programs (microsoft word and belight business card composer V5) from my Mac, and from within MS Word on my Windows lap top. In all cases if red is called for, I get brown.
    I have gone through the printhead cleaning procedure, the alignment procedure and the print quality diagnostics, all to no avail.
    Thanks in advance for your help

    Gmabert-
    The front camera displays a reversed image on the screen, as if you were looking into a mirror.  When you take a picture, it comes out normal, which is backwards to what you would have observed on the screen.

  • Issue when installing SQL Server Express 2012 - "The requested control is not valid for this service" + "Could not find the database engine startup handle"

    Good morning,
    I'm experiencing the following issue when installing Microsoft SQL Server Express 2012 (with tools, SQLEXPRWT_x86_ENU.exe) on the laptop of my company;
    Installation goes plain until around the end of the progress bar, it stops on the setup of
    SqlEngineDBStartConfigAction_install_configrc_Cpu32
    giving 7-8 times, even pressing "Cancel", the message "The requested control is not valid for this service";
    After this, I receive one last message ""Could not find the database engine startup handle", then installation ends with failures, in particular the Database Engine and the Server Replication failed to be installed.
    I've put in my SkyDrive the error log I received after the install;
    I'm at full disposal if you need further information,
    thank you in advance
    Best regards
    Francesco

    Well, i just ran into this issue and the problem was lack of admin rights. It was my company's laptop so got the setup initiated by my company's IT team with admin rights. However, the upon completion of setup, i go the same error messages as stated above: 
    SqlEngineDBStartConfigAction_install_configrc_Cpu32
    giving 7-8 times, even pressing "Cancel", the message "The requested control is not valid for this service";
    After this, I receive one last message ""Could not find the database engine startup handle", then installation ends with failures, in particular the Database Engine and the Server Replication failed to be installed.
    Also, if you open SQL Server Configuration, the status of the service is "Change Pending" and you would not be able to set the startup login type to Local Service/System/Network.
    Then, I just got my account added as Local Admin and then tried to start the service and was able to.
    However, I am not sure whether same was the case for you.
    Please mark the answer as helpful if i have answered your query. Thanks and Regards, Kartar Rana

  • IPod Touch 1st Generation Shuts "Off" Continuously

    My first generation iPod Touch will shut it self off after a minute or so, after no activity. It forces me to do a hard reset (pressing both buttons, the only two buttons, lol) to turn back on. When the iPod is on, it works flawlessly, no app crashes, no lag, no problems whatsoever. If I hit the sleep button and wait a minute, it will not turn back on and I'm forced to do the reset all over again. If I hold down the sleep button to actually turn it off, it will still not turn back on unless I do the hard reset again. If I were to leave the music playing and hit the sleep button, it will turn back on no problem. I have tried draining/recharging the battery, which is new by the way, and doing resets/restores with a full battery in case the battery software needs to be refreshed and it still hasn't helped.
    This sounds like a software problem so I reverted back to the 3.0 version and the same thing still happens. So I restored back to 3.1.3 and it hasn't helped. As long as music is playing, it continues to work. Regardless if my wi-fi is enabled or not, this problem occurs.
    Has anyone experienced this? I am going to get my new battery replaced just to rule it out, but since the iPod works when it's on or when music is playing, it's hard to imagine the battery being the culprit. I will update this after the battery has been replaced but I would still like to know if this problem has been experienced before and if there is a resolution...

    I sure did. Trying to rule out a software problem led me to that conclusion as well but it didn't make one difference. I can leave the iPod sitting on the home screen and it will not turn off either until the battery has drained of course, but as soon as I put it to sleep, then it shuts off within seconds, as long as it's not playing music, as I have mentioned before...
    In all respects, this really is the strangest behavior I have seen in any gadget I have owned and considering I bought this two days after it was first released, almost 3 years ago and have NEVER had any problems since, this is quite odd...Thanks for the suggestion, I wish it was that simple...

  • My ipod touch(3rd generation) shuts off every time while backing up. What do I do without losing all my datat?

    My ipod for  some reason refuses to back up on my laptop. Hwnever it's syncing, it shuts off right before it finishes. HELP!!

    If you successfully restored (went through all steps without error) to factory settings/new iPod via iTunes (Not via Settings>General>Reset>Erase all Content and Setting) and still have the problem that indicates a hardware problem.
    Make an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store..

  • My iPod nano (3rd generation) shut off and wont turn back on?

    I was putting new music on my Ipod, and one day after working perfectly fine, i got to a song my friend got for me. After lintening to it for about thirty seconds, my ipod shut off. I tried holding down the home button, but nothing hapened.  I also tried charging it. The computer will not recognize it either. Is there something i can do to make it work, or do i have to bringit in to an apple store?

    What have you tried so far in terms of troubleshooting?  If nothing else, work through each of the 5 R's of troubleshooting for your iPod to rule out the possibility of any sort of software error/glitch or data corruption.
    http://www.apple.com/support/ipod/five_rs/
    Otherwise, you have a hardware issue, meaning you'll need to either take or send your iPod in for service/replacement either via Apple or a third party service.
