Jul 9, 2008, 12:01 AM
My friend has a 5thgen ipod video 30GB....black n color if that makes a difference...
Any way this thing will not respond @ all. Id call it a brick except it works when she puts it on her dock radio (radio that plays music off the ipod)....but it will not link up 2 her computer (PC) or mine (powerbook)....I hav tried resetting it...and nothing....I am kinna @ a loss...any 1 that could help me out would b awesome.thanks

Nothing will come up on the iPod's screen whether it is pluged n or not...

Ok not 30seconds after posting this I held it up 2 the light and noticed a meseg on the screen saying "please wait battery verry low" and a loading symbol...but it now has gone away and nothing again...

battery may be dead for good

is it an old ipod? I had my video for over a year with no problem. my brother has it now, still works fine. I can just hope this ipod touch lasts as long.
