How do I fix my iPod if it will not turn on, turn off, or wake up?

"Your iPod Won't Turn On" from the Apple Support Site provides in-depth instructions for troubleshooting an iPod that won't turn on. Apple recommends that you:

1. Make sure the Hold switch is off

2. Make sure the battery is charged

3. Reset iPod

4. Let iPod's battery drain

5. Update iPod's software

6. Make sure iPod is the only device in your FireWire or USB chain. Disconnect everything but the mouse, keyboard, and your iPod, then see if it will turn on.

7. Make sure you are using the FireWire or USB cable that came with your iPod, and that the cable is in good condition.

8. Try connecting iPod to the built-in port of a different computer to see if that works.

"iPod Stops Responding or Won't Wake From Sleep" from the Apple Support Site notes that you need to "charge your iPod, then reset your iPod" if it won't turn off or wake up.

For solutions to other specific problems, please refer to the iPod Troubleshooting & Repair Q&A on EveryiPod.com.

"iPod Only Shows an Apple Logo and Doesn't Start Up" from the Apple Support Site notes that "you may need to restore or update iPod by placing it in Disk Mode if only an Apple logo appears when you turn it on."

For the iPod touch models, which do not have a Disk Mode, "press and hold the sleep/wake button and the home button at the same time for at least ten seconds until the Apple logo appears" again. For more information, please refer to "Turning on/off and resetting iPod touch and iPhone" from the Apple Support Site and to page 72 of the iPod touch manual .

For more information, you may find "Using Your

iPod as a Storage Device ", "Updating iPod Software " and "Restoring iPod to Factory Settings ", to be helpful. Please note that restoring an iPod will erase all songs and files on your iPod .

For solutions to other specific problems, please refer to the iPod Troubleshooting & Repair Q&A on EveryiPod.com.

How do I fix my iPod if it shows a folder with a "!" icon or "sad" iPod?

If you start up your iPod and it shows a folder with an exclamation mark, a "sad" iPod icon, or anything else, you may first be interested in referring to "iPod Iconology" on the Apple Support Site.

Apple notes that the folder with an exclamation mark "can happen for a number of reasons" and advises one to read "iPod Shows a Folder Icon with an Exclamation Point". This document recommends that you try the following:

1. Charge the battery.

2. Reset iPod.

3. Restore the iPod.

If that doesn't work, you may need to have the iPod serviced. You may also find "Updating iPod Software " and "Restoring iPod to Factory Settings ", to be helpful. Please note that restoring an iPod will erase all songs and files on your iPod .

Apple notes that the "sad" iPod icon "means that the disk scan was not able to recover the data" and recommends reading "An Exclamation Point or Sad iPod Icon Appears Onscreen" which notes that you may need to "restore your iPod" as well. Again, restoring an iPod will erase all songs and files on your iPod. If restoring the iPod doesn't work, likewise, you may need to have the iPod serviced.

For solutions to other specific problems, please refer to the iPod Troubleshooting & Repair Q&A on EveryiPod.com.
