1st Generation iPod Nano replacement...

Recommended Posts

iPod Nano 1st Generation Replacement

"Apple has determined that, in very rare cases, the battery in the iPod nano (1st generation) may overheat and pose a safety risk. Affected iPod nanos were sold between September 2005 and December 2006.

This issue has been traced to a single battery supplier that produced batteries with a manufacturing defect. While the possibility of an incident is rare, the likelihood increases as the battery ages.

 

Apple recommends that you stop using your iPod nano (1st gen) and follow the process noted below to order a replacement unit, free of charge.

Note: This battery issue is specific to the iPod nano (1st gen) and does not affect any other iPod."

 

I just found my old ipod in my room, hasn't been used for years and don't even know if it works.

They look like this one:

Checked the serial number and mine can be replaced...

Get a shiny new 6th Generation touch screen and video Nano for free! :D

 

Worth a look if you or the family have a 1st gen Nano around the house!

They do say it can take 6 weeks for it to be replaced - I haven't used mine for years and don't think it works so is fair enough :)

 

Let me know when it arrives - have told a couple people about it so they're checking theirs too!

...just looked at this, thanks Lewis!

I have a very trusty 1st gen 4GB iPod nano that I have had for the last 5 years (bought it off my friend for £20 second hand :wink:). I'm a little attached to it though, so I'm honestly not sure whether to take up the offer (I know that probably sounds mad as it's quite an upgrade). I've sent off for the box though and I'll see how I feel. Do you know if we'll get the 8GB or the 16GB and if you can pick the colour you get?

 

Thanks again! I've had a terrible day today so it's given me something to smile about :)

Thank you Lwescott!!!!! Just checked my old nano (which has served me faithfully for years in a dock in my office) and its eligible - so will be getting a new one thanks to you. You deserve some brownie points today :clap:

I've done a little poking around online and there seems to be a bit of debate over whether you get a 6th gen iPod nano replacement or a refurbished 1st gen nano. Does anyone know anymore about this? Or has anyone got something back yet? :?

I read a few places that said they were originally spare 1st gens but then they'd ran out so are now 6th...

Haven't had my box yet so not sure what they say - what gb or if theres a colour choice.

 

Will let you know if I hear anything - hopefully Mr Webmuppets will arrive soon so we know! :lol:

Hi folks,

 

Sent off my (much loved) 1st generation 2Gb Ipod Nano at the beginning of December and today I finally received a replacement ........a shiny silver 6th generation 8Gb Nano. There's been so much about this issue on the web, but it really did seem too good to be true. The new Ipod doesn't come in retail packaging - just the ipod itself in foam lined cardboard box with a warranty leaflet so you'll have to use your original leads and headphones. Well done Apple !

Hurrah! I was looking this thread up to see if anyone had received theirs yet (they received mine on 20th January) - glad to hear that they have...and what great news that they're sixth-gen ones! Looking forward to getting mine then... :D

I changed to stage 3 on 20th January (product replacement pending), so it's been four and a half weeks. I'm really starting to miss my iPod but the wait will be worth it :D

 

I'll update on here as soon as it arrives :)

Just my luck - Mine has been sat broken for about 18months after the battery overheated! Sadly I got fed up of looking at it looking sorrowful and binned in just before Christmas!! Typical!

Have just tracked mine and it says it's due for delivery by the end of the day...and I'm due to be out most of the day. Humph :roll:

Wonder if they do them in batches or if its just 'cos we all did it at similar times?

Very frustrated at UPS. They left a note saying they attempted to deliver today, but no one was in (there never will be on a weekday :roll:). The note said we could change the delivery address online. I've just spent about 20mins online trying to work out how to do this (including making a UPS account), and I'm now fairly certain you can't unless you are the seller. :silenced:

 

HOPEFULLY, we can ring them on Monday, get the address changed to Dad's work and it'll go into their little sorting office and be delivered to his desk. However I'm not too sure if there would be complications with him no being there at the delivery time. If not then I'm not sure what will happen.

 

Anyone had more luck? :D
