Hello everyone,

Two weeks ago I went on holiday, and took my Ipod Classic (120GB) with me. I plugged my Ipod into an adapter, and when the battery was full, I disconnected it from the adapter. But somehow, the image of the plug - which is shown when the battery is full - won't go away. Because of this, the battery will just lose all of its energy and I won't be able to use the Ipod for longer than one day. I already plugged it in the PC at home, but the problem hasn't been solved.

My question is: how can I get this "full battery-image" away?

Thanks in advance

    Hello Jurrolino
    And welcome to Apple Discussions!

    So you are still able to use the ipod and listen to songs or is it permanently stuck on the battery screen image?

    The screen saver (or whatever it is called in this case) for the iPod classic will show the battery meter and time when the iPod has been left idle for awhile. This is a feature of the iPod.

    If the iPod is frozen on the battery screen, have you tried a simple reset of the iPod? To do this, toggle the hold switch on and off a few times, then press and hold the Center and Menu buttons together until the Apple logo appears.

    If still no luck, I would recommend [restoring|http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1339] the iPod via iTunes.

    Hope this helps.

    It is correct that I am still able to listen music. I tried several times to solve the problem with a reset, but it didn't help.

    I haven't tried restoring the iPod yet, because I first wanted to know if I can solve it via an other way.

    Thank you for the quick response.
