I have A ipod 5. Every time I go to charge it with a dynex or apple charger it doesn't charge. The bar stays red for over an hour. I'm thinking that I have a short in my charger. I don't know what to do. Please help?

  • Did you tried using only the USB cable (without the power adapter) ? – Matthieu Riegler Jun 21 '13 at 16:41
  • I know right that is exactly what is happening to me. I have bought over 15 chargers now and Im starting to think its my ipod – user89438 Sep 2 '14 at 6:35

Without knowing if your charge is dead, try using a USB cable connected to your Mac, to charge it that way.

To charge iPod, connect it directly to a computer's USB port (not a keyboard) and make sure standby, hibernation, or sleep mode is turned off. Important: iPod will stop charging if the computer it's connected to enters standby, hibernation, or sleep mode.

If you have a volt meter then check the pins of the cable coming out of the charger.
