It sounds like the connector for the screen inside the iPod is loose, or the screen is bad. Either way, this site will help you quite a bit. That is, if you don't feel comfortable doing it yourself. I should stress, however, opening an iPod will definitely void your warranty, and you could total it. But if you have to, you can slide something thin around the edges and pry it open. There's just plastic snap tabs around the edges. Once inside, just make sure the screen is plugged in right and see how it works. But if you are unsure of any part, or need better instructions, the site in the link has those too (and a free diagnosis if you send it in). Good luck, let me know if it works.

I can not unlock my ipod and i do not have the primary pc


You may not want everyone to see the content you have stored on your iPod.
Whether it's a private photo, music that might be inappropriate for young ears, confidential information or contacts saved from work, you may need an extra safeguard to keep this information from reaching others.
With the iPod Nano, you can set a password that allows you to lock the unit so that only you
or someone you entrust with the password an view its contents.
And if that password gets into the wrong hands, you can always reset it from your iPod.
Use the click wheel on your iPod Nano to scroll to "Extras" from the main screen.
Press the center button to select the Extras menu.
Scroll down to "Screen Lock" and press the center button.
Scroll to "Reset Combination" and press the center button.
Enter your current password when your iPod asks you to enter your choice of password.
Use the click wheel to scroll through the numbers and the center button to select a number; repeat this to choose the next one, and so on.
Re-enter your new password to verify the change.
You have just set a new password on your iPod Nano.

My volumn on my ipod 4th gen is not working and when i go to settings it only shows languages no volumn setting


One of the major warnings Apple includes with all of its iPods is the permanent hearing damage that could occur if you have the volume on your iPod turned up too high.


To help combat the problem, the iPod comes with a feature that allows you to set a maximum volume level that your iPod can be played at that level is controlled by a combination that can keep others namely children from turning the volume up to dangerous levels.


The good news is, if that combination falls into the wrong hands, it can be reset.


Use your iPod's click wheel to scroll down to "Settings."


Press the center button located in the middle of the click wheel to select the settings menu.

Scroll down to "Playback" and press the center button to select it.


Scroll to "Volume Limit" and press the center button to select it.


Use the click wheel to scroll to the first number of the old combination and press the center button to select it.


Repeat this process for all four numbers of the old combination.


Use the click wheel to scroll to where you want the maximum volume to be set and press the center button.


Use the click wheel to scroll to "Lock" and press the center button.


Use the click wheel to enter the first number of the new combination when the message "Enter New Combination" appears on the screen repeat the process for the three remaining numbers.


Once the four numbers have been entered, your iPod's maximum volume will be set and your password will be changed.

hope this helps

Volume wont turn up


Resetting the volume limit on your iPod Nano affects everything you listen to, from music to audio books. You can adjust the volume for each individual item on your Nano using the click wheel, but the highs and lows of the sound will depend on the overall volume limit setting. Volume levels will vary with different ear buds and headphones, and using external devices like docking stations to play your iPod Nano will also cause variation in the volume.


Instruction:



1 Press any button on your iPod Nano's click wheel and turn it on. Press the "menu" button at the top of the click wheel until you reach the iPod menu.

2 Select "Settings" from this menu by scrolling down until "Settings" is highlighted, then click the center button.
3
Select "Playback" from the menu choices that show up.

4 Select "Volume Limits." You will reach a screen with a speaker icon and dots indicating the level of volume your iPod is currently set on.
5
Scroll the wheel up or back to adjust the volume limits. Press the center button and you will have the option to lock in your settings by selecting a four-digit combination lock. This is not a necessary step; you can click on "done" and finish. Setting the combination allows you to have more control over any future changes to your iPod's volume limits. Scroll the click wheel to select your combination. Press the center button and you will revisit the volume limits; adjust it as you like and press the center button.

Goodluck

Tips & Warnings
If you set up a combination and forget it, you can reset your iPod Nano and start over again. Resetting will not lose any of your downloads, but you will need to restore or reset many of the settings you initially chose when you first set up your iPod.
Changing the volume limits on your iPod Nano covers everything on your player, but the sound levels for songs, audio books and shows will vary based on how they were recorded.

Screen goes blank when i unplug from coputer does it have a battery that might be bad and if so how do change it out?


Hi shannonsprou,

this is normal operation for the ipod nano. It is a power saving feature.

Just so long as you can turn the screen on again by click on the scroll wheel. Make sure the ipod is unlocked by sliding the clip at the top of the ipod nano so no orange shows on top.

Nathan.

IPod Backlight Broken


I thought my ipod was broken but i did something to make it brighter:
Go to settings and scroll to brightness (i guess it should be right under backlight timer in the menu)
There you will need to scroll clockwise and you will see your screen get brighter.
Anyway I have a ipod video I'm not sure if it's the same as the other ipod series.

Fixing ipod


This sounds like the "white screen of death" that some ipods suffer. Try plugging in your headphones and see if you can still hear the clicks when turning the clickwheel, aslo if you can get a song to play.

There are a number of different solutions that people have done to solve this.

One is to keep turning the ipod on and off until the battery wears down completely, then reconnect to your PC or wall A/C adapter.
