I am having difficulty in turing off my 30G iPod Photo using the normal method i.e. holding the play/pause button until it turns off. It only happened after I finish charging it this morning with the power point.

I tried going into different menus and stuff try to see if I could turn it off (as this happened before and worked) but not this time. And usually if I leave it doing nothing, it would turn off itself after 5mins or so.

Any help would be appreciated.

I read in previous posts that I need to restore the iPod to factory setting, but I prefer not to do that if I can avoid it

Cheers
Billy

Try resetting it:

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!
