I recently recieved an iPod Classic for Christmas, one my parents purchased from eBay. It was working fine for about two weeks, and then it stopped working. It won't turn on at all unless I connect it to my computer with the USB cord. I have USB 2.0, because my computer is new. So, my iPod flashes on and off on the apple logo screen, for about a second and then starts all over again, never long enough for it to access the computer and be recognized by it. But when I push the reset buttons it still flashes, for a second longer. Any ideas on what I should do? And because I got it used, I have no idea about the warranty. Is this possibly a battery problem, if so how can i fix this, possibly the cheapest way. And do you know if all eBay purchases have warranty's? Please respond.
when i enter my serial number, apple tells me that it's not correct. i've done it like a million times and it still doesn't work. so idk what's going on. cause the back of my ipod classic does not lie, and i hve 20/20 vision.
