Problem with ipod not turning on

well heres the thing.... i dropped my ipod a few months ago then i tried to turn it on using reset etc. and all that other stuff you gotta do to try and get it to work, including waiting 24 hours and then resetting also connecting to other computers, and charger etc.... but when restarting i can hear the hard drive start to spin clicks and then slows down (like a powering down noise), without anything coming up on the screen... i have connected my ipod to the computer and it doesn't recognize it, but sometimes recognizes it, but doesn't come up with the drive in my computer... after a while (approx 5mins) it will come up with auto play and the drive will come up but then disappear straight away.... i am thinking probably a hard drive problem. any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Dropping didn't help matters. YOu don't want to hear it, but I'd say time for a new iPod.

  • Problems with iPod not booting up, not turning off, not responding.

    So as of yesterday... if the iPod Touch is plugged in to the comp to sync up, things are generally fine. I can even unplug it for about 5 minutes and things are fine. Battery is fully charged, all content appearing normally. But, suddenly it wil cycle between about 10 seconds of totally black screen, to 10 seconds of silver apple logo, and back to black screen, and I can't seem to turn it off or reset it or get it to come back to the home screen until I plug it in to sync again. Tried resetting settings, no improvement, tried restoring from iTunes, no improvement. Just those two screens flickering back and forth, again and again. Anyone know what this is?

    Anyone? Crickets? After a second restore (where first I let the battery drain, THEN did the restore the second I plugged it in) it is still crashing (to the flashing black, apple logo, black, apple logo business) but now I can almost always hold the buttons in long enough to get it ask me if I want it to power off, then I say no, then it returns to the home screen, where it will appear to work before another crash a few minutes later.

  • Help. Problems with iPod Notes.

    I've got iPod Classic 160GB.
    I wanted to view photos using Notes feature. When I uploaded some photos to Notes folder in iPod and previewed them, all of them were streched.
    So I found out that photos are shown in 320x216 size, so I've tried to upload some photos that size.
    Guess what - trying to preview most of those photos resets my iPod! How should I understand and fix this?
    Just some of photos were opened and some says "Unable to view this image".

    Given that the iPod Classic has a specific approach to photos, why use notes? It is probably a format that the Notes tool isn't expecting.
    Just use the photo capability in iTunes and sync your photos to your iPod. You'll likely be much happier.

  • Problem with iPod not seeing a whole track

    I have an album as a collection of MP3's. I imported it into iTunes and have played it a couple of times, and all tracks are fine - but when I synced my iPod - 3 of the tracks finish early and abruptly.
    I have tried deleting the tracks from the ipod and re-syncing and then the whole album - but no good.
    Anyone got any ideas?

    I had a whole lot of tracks doing that for a long time and I couldn't find a solution. What ended up fixing it was, I had to completely delete them from my library and re-add them. I had been avoiding doing that because I didn't want to loose my play counts, but it was the only thing that worked.

  • Software necessary to communicate with Ipod not properly installed

    Hi,
    I updated my Itunes software and have been having problems ever since. Every time I connect my Ipod I get the message: "Software necessary to communicate with Ipod not properly installed. Reinstall Itunes..." After I click Ok it goes to Itunes but it does not recognized the Ipod. Now I have reinstalled several times and even downgraded to a previous Itunes version but keep getting the same error. Even though I don't know if this has anything to do with it, yesterday I noticed that I cannot watch any YouTube videos either, i get the error: "Hello, you either have JavaScript turned off or an old version of Adobe's Flash Player. Get the latest Flash player" Any help would be highly appreciated!

    A lot of users are getting this. See 'can not open iTunes' obove this in the forum

  • Problems with IE8 "not responding" on windows 7

    I have a Toshiba Satellite L-355  that has been upgraded to run Windows 7 Home Premium from Windows Vista. I've been having problems with IE8 "not responding" and have tried running it without add-ons, system restore, and banging my head against the wall. All to no avail. Does anybody have any ideas how to fix this? I've tried running other browsers with the same problems.

    Intel(R) HM55 Express Chipset LPC Interface Controller
    Thanks, sav! That's perfect. (Good to know it shows up in Device Manager for people, too.)
    Okay ... although it's the Intel P55 and PM55 chipsets which get all the press about cranky Touch/iPhone connections on Windows 7 systems (the 0xE0000065, -6999 and "Disk can not be read or written to" error messages are the most common, although symptoms can vary further than that), similar sorts of issues look like they could strike other Intel 5-series chipsets ... including your HM55.
    So I'm proceeding precisely as I would with someone with a PM55 chipset.
    *1) Dell updates*
    Some folks with 5-series chipset trouble have got past it by way of BIOS updates. So I thinks it's worth your heading to your Downloads page at Dell, and checking to see if there's any newer versions of your BIOS lurking there. Unfortunately, with the Studio 15s I'm never precisely sure which is the correct downloads page ... so I'd try going to the following Dell page:
    http://support.dell.com/support/downloads/index.aspx
    ... enter your service tag, and then drill through to your downloads page.
    Any improvement with your syncing performance after applying any available BIOS updates at Dell?
    *(2) Adjust power management setting on USB controllers*
    If no joy after updating (if you were behind on your BIOS version), try applying the measures from the following document:
    [iPod not recognized when connected to Windows laptop over USB|iPod not recognized when connected to Windows laptop over USB]
    Reboot the PC after making the changes, and then try another sync. Any improvement?
    (If either set of measures improves your sync performance, please post back to let us know which one helped for you.)

  • Problems with Ipod Touch

    Problems with iPod Touch.
    Hi, I bought an ipod touch in Colombia a couple of months ago but lost the invoice, I tried using it but everytime I connect the iPod to the computer, it restarts over and over again, I've tried all the recommendations show in the Apple support site, but no method has proved the question is, I can take this ipod to a Mac store in the U.S. for repair or change.
    I live in Venezuela, there is some Apple store in my country where I can take it.
    Thanks in advance for your quick response

    You should be able to go to the USA for warrantee service. If you purchased at an Apple store you should be able to go to your account in iTunes and see the purchase. I am confused by your statement:
    "I live in Venezuela, there is some Apple store in my country where I can take it."
    If you go to the Venezuela apple website you can see if/where there are Apple stores.

  • HT5312 So I have a problem with iTunes not letting me download anything without first responding to some security questions which I don't remember setting up, how can fix it? Oh, and it won't let me reset the questions either!

    So I have a problem with iTunes not letting me download anything without first responding to some security questions which I don't remember setting up, how can fix it? Oh, and it won't let me reset the questions either!

    If you mean that you aren't getting the reset link, then from the page that you posted from :
    Note: The option to send an email to reset your security questions and answers will not be available if a rescue email address is not provided. You will need to contact iTunes Store support in order to do so. 
    You can contact iTunes Support in your country via this page : http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5699
    When they've been reset you can then use the steps half-way down the HT5312 page that you posted from to add a rescue email address for potential future use

  • RFIDITVCL : problem with variation notes

    Hi Experts,
    I have implemented the sapnote 1639418 "RFIDITVCL: 3000 Euro Communication additional changes", but I have a problem with variation notes related to specific invoices in same year...the user guide in the note says that they are clubbed together and the total is compared with the limit...I think that the report doesn't function in this case (my case is higher 25000u20AC) and so my documents aren't in the list....
    Do you have the same problem??
    Thank you
    Best regards
    Angela

    Dear Angela,
    I have the same problem. The program looks at field BSEG-REBZG.
    However this field is empty in our case.
    We create our debit and credit memo's with reference to the original sales order.
    Who knows a solution?
