Just try to reset the ipod nano 4GB* MP3 player press and hold both Menu and Select (center button) for about 5 or 10 seconds. If the Ipod is alive this will reset it

    Try this another solution also;



    If you're having trouble with your iPod, try these steps (known around here as the five Rs) one at a time until the issue is resolved. These steps will often whip your iPod back into shape.


    1. Retry your iPod with a different USB or FireWire port on your computer (please note that the latest iPods can only be synced through USB).
    2. Reset your iPod. To reset an iPod, iPod nano, or iPod mini, press and hold the Menu and Select buttons until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 10 seconds. You may need to repeat this step. To reset an iPod shuffle, disconnect iPod shuffle from the computer (if connected), and then move the switch on the back of iPod shuffle to the off position. Wait 5 seconds, and then move the switch on the back to the play in order or the shuffle position.
    3. Restart your computer, and make sure that you have the latest software updates installed.
    4. Reinstall your iTunes software and make sure you have downloaded the latest version. Check your iPod software by connecting your iPod to your computer, and then in iTunes, select your iPod in the Source pane. Click the Summary tab, and the Version section tells you whether iPod is up to date or needs a newer version of the software. Click Update to install the latest version of the software.
    5. Restore your iPod by connecting your iPod to your computer, and then in iTunes, select your iPod in the Source pane. Click the Summary tab, and click Restore to restore iPod to its original settings. Follow the onscreen instructions to complete the restore process. (Important: Please note that restoring an iPod will erase all songs and files on your iPod and restore it back to its original settings. Make a backup of any files on your iPod before restoring it. After restoring, you can transfer your music and files from your computer back to your iPod again.)

    Hope this may help;

My 1st gen ipod touch backlight doesn't turn on. I tried to turn my lightness up but still their is not light. the ipod works great though but the light doesnt work


i don't know if this will work for you. I had the same problem with mine and i read somewhere that u need to either blow really hard in the bottom where you connect the sync cable or use a can of compressed air and it will clear dust off the place where the brightness is hooked up to the motherboard. After blowing put iPod in sleep mode for about 5 minutes and then turn back on. If there is no light then go to settings>backlight and then make it go all the way up. Might Work

Backlight of ipod


Go to your settings and change the backlight options: brightness & how long it will stay lit. It might not help, but a washer will mess up your ipod!

iPod has backlighting, so you can see the display in low light.

You can configure iPod so the backlight turns on for a set amount of time when you press a button or move the scroll wheel.
To access the backlight settings:
  1. Select Settings > Backlight Timer.
  2. Select a setting from the menu. Options include having the backlight timer:
    • Off
    • Turn off after a period of time between 2 and 20 seconds
    • Always on
A backlight on/off switch can be added to the Main menu by selecting:
Settings > Main Menu > Backlight

Backlight


Hi Em,

You wanted to turn off permanently the backlighting on your IPod Nano? Your player uses that backlighting in order for users to see the display during poor lighting conditions.
If you really wanted to switch it off, you can access the backlighting settings on your player; Select Setting then go to Backlight Timer, Choose the option that suite your need
(Always On, Off, Turn off after a period of time between 2 and 20 seconds) or you can press and hold the Menu button down to toggle the backlight on your player to on or off.

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.
