I have a 5.5 gen (i believe) 30gig ipod video that will not work. Ive tried plugging it into my mac, plugging it into my ipod clock, pushing the buttons, but nothing works. It just shows a blank black screen (like its off).

As of 2 hours ago it worked fine. I plugged it in to recharge and add some songs, and it said to update it. Halfway through itself restarting the screen went blank, and thus the problem began. I haven't modded it or anything.

Thanks for your help

Hi Viper. I like how your registered name is viper and the car in your avatar is a Porsche.

So it doesn't appear up on your computer when you plug your iPod in it?

Have you tried restarting it? (holding menu and the middle button)

I tried restarting it but it still wont turn on. Its not that it dosent appear on my computer, its more of it wont turn on period. For example, when you plug in your ipod to a computer the ipod turns on, shows "do not disconnect", and mounts on the computer. My problem is that none of these happen for me. No matter what i do the ipod always appears to be off. At first i thought the screen might have gone bad, but then i noticed the HD never starts or anything.

Thanks for the reply, And fyi "viper" has nothing to do with the car, but I guess it is ironic now that you say that.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

Thanks but its still nothing.

Ive plugged it in for an hour to see if it would help, but no.
It wont reset or unfreeze no matter how many times I try.
Ive even tried plugging it into another computer (it was a windows pc so you know im desperate).

I believe that i now have new shiny paperweight, but please prove me wrong.

Thanks

Where did you buy it from?

Can you take it back with a warranty?

I suggest from there just taking it to the Apple Store and see if they can do anything.

It's not under warranty then.

Check out this site:

There's actually quite a number of repair sites out there, try googling "repair ipod".
