How to unfreez an ipod

INSTRUCTIONAL STEPS

To reset iPod touch, press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time until you see the Apple logo show up on the screen:


How to unfreeze or reset an iPod Classic 1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
2. Now press and hold the Menu and Select buttons until the Apple logo appears, which may take about 6 to 10 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.

Notes:

  • If you are having problems resetting the iPod, go ahead and set it on a flat surface. Then make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also be sure that you are pressing the Menu button towards the outside of the click wheel, not near the center.
  • If the above mentioned steps do not work, then you can try connecting your iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect the iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep.
How to reset an iPod Nano (1st, 2nd, and 3rd Generation) This one is similar to how you would do it for an iPod Classic:
1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
2. Now press and hold the Menu and Select buttons until the Apple logo appears, which may take about 6 to 10 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.
You can also reset an iPod Mini in the same way as the above steps.
How to reset or unfreeze an iPod Shuffle 1. First , eject your iPod shuffle from iTunes, if you have it connected.
2. Then remove the iPod shuffle from the USB dock.
3. Move the switch that is on the top of the iPod shuffle to the off position.

Note: When iPod shuffle is off, the green stripe by the switch is not visible.
4. Wait 5 seconds.
5. Move the switch back to the on position so green stripe will be visible in either position.
And that's it! Hopefully, now that you know these steps, you don't have to keep taking out the battery to unfreeze your iPod! Any comments or questions, make sure to write below! Enjoy! Source: Apple Support

how can i reset my ipod?


Please follow the below steps to reset the iPod.
  1. Press and hold the "Sleep/Wake" button. This is the main power button on the top left-hand corner of the device.
  2. Press and hold the "Home" button while still holding "Sleep/Wake." The home button is the main button on the front of your iPod touch, indicated by a white square inside of a circular black button.
  3. Hold both buttons until the Apple logo appears on your screen. Resetting can take upwards of 10 seconds. Once the logo appears, your iPod touch reboots by itself.

Thanks for understanding.

my ipod touch wont work


If iPod touch won't turn on, or if the display freezes or doesn't respond
  • iPod touch may need charging. See "Charging the Battery" in the iPod touch Features Guide.
  • Press and hold the Home button for at least six seconds, until the application you were using quits.
  • If that doesn't work, turn off iPod touch and turn it on again. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button on top of iPod touch for a few seconds until a red slider appears, and then drag the slider. Then press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.
  • If that doesn't work, reset iPod touch. Press and hold both the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
If iPod touch continues to freeze or not respond after you reset it
  • Reset iPod touch settings. From the Home screen choose Settings > General > Reset > Reset All Settings. All your preferences are reset, but your data and media are left untouched.
  • If that doesn't work, erase all content on iPod touch. From the Home screen choose Settings > General > Reset > "Erase All Content and Settings." All your preferences are reset, and all your data and media are removed from iPod touch.

To reset the iPhone or iPod Touch, press and hold down the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button simultaneously at the same time for at least ten seconds, then the LCD display will clear and the Apple logo appears on the black background. When Apple logo appears, reset is done.
