Try this - it at least seems to have fixed the same problem, at least for now, with my 2nd generation Nano:

1. When you see the white screen, hold down both the Play and Select buttons together, pressing the Play button a little bit before the Select button.
2. When the white screen goes to black, release the two buttons almost simultaneously with the Select button released slightly before the Play button.
3. Hopefully, if done with the right timing, you should get your normal screen back. If not, try switching the Hold on and off or changing the starting mode by listening through headphones to see if it is playing or not.
4. Once you have recovered the screen, plug it into your computer to sync without turning it off and perform a complete sync. After I did this my Nano stayed in the normal screen mode. Before I had done this step, it kept reverting to the white screen.

One more thing to try if this still doesn't work is to first try restoring the Nano completely through iTunes.

I'll be interested to hear whether my solution works for anyone else.

Hi You can try the troubleshooting guide below, If in case the troubleshooting guide will not work I highly suggest to contact apple technical support .
iPod Nano 2nd Generation Troubleshooting
The second generation iPod introduced a new design and lots of improvements to the player's technology. The new Nano boasted a new enclosure made of aluminum, a slimmer design with rounded corners, a brighter screen, new headphones and a wide selection of colors. The flash drive made hard drive failure less likely, making these a long-lasting mp3 player option. The iPod Nano can fail eventually, but when yours looks dead, all may not be lost.
Hold and ChargeThe first thing to do if you have an iPod that is not turning on is to check to see if the hold button it is engaged. If it is, slide the button to the left to take the iPod off hold and see if the buttons work. If not, check to see whether the iPod is charged. Try plugging your iPod into your computer or a wall socket. If the iPod does not respond, do further troubleshooting.
RestartAfter checking to see if your iPod is charged, you should try restarting your iPod. Hold down the menu and center button on your iPod until it restarts. You will see the Apple icon. If this does not work, move to the next step.
RetryTry another USB cord if your computer does not recognize the iPod. If the new USB cord works, it was the previous USB cord at fault.
ResetIf your computer does not recognize your iPod, try restarting the the computer. It may be that the software on your computer is at fault, and not the actual iPod.
ReinstallIf your iPod is not recognized by your computer, try reinstalling iTunes. Sometimes a fault in the iTunes software will prevent the iPod from being recognized by your computer. Download the iTunes software from the Apple website and install on your computer.
RestoreIf your iPod is not responding, you may need to restore. If your computer recognizes your iPod select your iPod from the left menu in iTunes. Click the restore button from the menu under the picture of your iPod. Make sure that all of the music on your iPod is backed up somewhere else, as the restore will erase the contents of your iPod.

NOT OPEN


Power off? connect it with computer for about half an hour and then open it again. So can your iTunes recognize your nano when you connect it with nano? If so, restore your nano with iTunes. If can't, go to Apple Store and find Genius. Hope everything is OK with your iPod nano

Unlocking my ipod nano


There is only one way - and it will erase all your songs:

If you lock your iPod nano screen and can’t unlock it
Normally, if you can connect your iPod nano to the computer it is authorized to work
with, your iPod nano automatically unlocks. If the computer authorized to work with
your iPod nano is unavailable, you can connect iPod nano to another computer and
use iPod Updater to restore your iPod software. See the next section for more
information.
If you want to change the screen lock combination and you can’t remember the
current combination, you must restore the iPod software, and then set a new
combination.
Updating and Restoring iPod Software
You can use iPod Updater to update or restore your iPod software. Apple periodically
updates iPod software to improve performance or add features. It is recommended that
you update your iPod nano to use the latest software. You can also restore the software,
which puts iPod nano back in its original state.
â If you choose to update, the software is updated, but your settings and songs are not
affected.
â If you choose to restore, all data is erased from your iPod nano, including songs, files,
contacts, photos, calendar information, and any other data. All iPod nano settings are
restored to their original state.
To update or restore iPod nano with the latest software:
1 Go to www.apple.com/support/ipod and download the latest iPod Update. The update
has the latest software for all models of iPod.
2 Double-click the software installation file and follow the onscreen instructions to install
the iPod update.
3 Connect iPod nano to your computer and open iTunes. The iPod Updater application
opens.
If you’re using a Windows PC and the iPod Updater application doesn’t open
automatically, you can find the updater by choosing Start > All Programs > iPod.
4 Follow the onscreen instructions to update or restore iPod software.
If you use the iPod Updater application and it doesn’t recognize that iPod nano is
connected to your computer, reset iPod nano (see page 45).
If you want to restore iPod software and you don’t have an Internet connection, you
can use the iPod Updater application that was installed on your computer when you
installed the software from the iPod CD.
