APPLE IPOD TURNS OFF AND GOES TO SLEEP AFTER 2 MINUTES

Background

The BUG

The FIX

Background:

I bought a new IPOD in May 28th, 2004. Apple IPOD 40 Gigabyte Model A1040 for just about $470. I have been using it almost every day since that date but have had problem and haven't been able to reproduce it the issue.

I would hit play button, lock the IPOD so it wouldn't go off while in the case. Than all of the sudden it would go off for no reason at all. I would turn take it out and turn it back on.

It happened enough that I decided to go the the Apple discussion forums to find if anyone else was having the problem. Sure enough other had a similar problem. Now the issue has been identified as a BUG by APPLE. If you want to check the bug out click here . The fix. Click Here

The BUG

This is what the folks at Apple asked me to do to confirm this as a BUG.

  1. Reformatted IPOD
  2. I put 1 song on the IPOD.
  3. Turned on IPOD
  4. Held Menu and Play button down for 10 seconds.
  5. IPOD reboots and comes up defaulting to play list.
  6. Hit the play button twice.
  7. On the screen up in the left hand corner you should see a || which means the song is paused but the song is actually playing. The time played is at 0:00 and the total time -4:24 in this case.
  8. At exactly 2 minutes into the song the IPOD shuts off. As I said the IPOD is not showing how much time is left on the song

9/10/2004 - I just spoke to Apple and they have confirmed that this is now a know reproduced BUG. APPLE indicated that it will go to engineering to be fixed and will be available in a future release of the software.

The FIX

Don't hit the play button twice!
