Question about Apple iPod MA446LL/A MP3 Player
My ipod has the lock in the top left corner off screen,it wont reset or restore as the click wheel has no use due to it it being locked(hold),yes the hold button is switched to off.but nothing happens.any ideas???thnx.
I had this same problem and tried everything posted on the internet to get it working. Nothing was working...
I had the harddrive replaced at some point but some internet ipod drive saver guys. Got it back working fine. Then my battery wouldn't stay charged very long, so I bought a replacement and swapped it myself. Worked fine initially but shortly after got the lock icon in the top left, regardless of the HOLD switch position.
After trying everything else, I opened the case again, and moved the switch on and off using the exposed connector on the inside rather than by the external part of the switch. While doing that, I instantly saw the screen light up on the table it was laying on. I turned it over and the lock was gone! So apparently, there must have been some issue with the HOLD switch that by moving from the inside was able to fix.
