My ipod is disabled


Plug the iPod USB cable into the bottom of your iPod. Plug the other end of the iPod USB cable into a free USB port on your Mac or PC. Open the iTunes application by using the dock icon on a Mac or the start menu on a PC. Click on the name of your iPod under the "Devices" list in the main iTunes window. Click on the "Sync" button to create a connection between the computer and the iPod. Click on the eject symbol after the syncing process is complete, and then unplug your iPod from the computer. The lock code has been reset; when you go to disable the iPod again, you will be prompted to choose a new four-digit code. hope this helps

Attach a USB connector to the iPod and plug it into a USB connection on a computer for power, or into a stand alone USB charger plugged into a power strip for electrical power. Pick up the iPod. Move the "Hold" switch at the top of the iPod to the "Locked" position so that an orange color appears by the switch. Return the switch to the "Unlocked" position. Repeat this process. Press and hold the "Home" button and the button at the top right corner together if using a fifth generation iPod, iPod Nano, iPod Mini or iPod with a click wheel. Press and hold the "Menu" button and the "Play/Pause" button together if using an iPod Touch. Press and hold the "Menu" button and the "OK" button together if using an older iPod. Continue holding the buttons together until the screen flashes and then displays the iPod name and the Apple logo. Release the buttons. Wait as the iPod resets itself and turns itself back on. Leave the iPod connected to the USB connector so that it can fully charge the battery. Remove the iPod from the USB connector. Navigate to a song using the menu selection and play some music

How do I turn ipod off


iPods have no traditional on/ff switch. They power up with the slightest touch, which makes turning the iPod on as simple as touching the menu. Turning the iPod off, however, can be more tricky. Waiting for automatic shut off wastes battery life, and surfing the menus yields no way to stop the device from running. Turning off the iPod Nano, though, is almost as simple as turning it on.

Locate the "hold" or "lock" switch at the top of your iPod Nano. It will be located on the top of your device on the left side. Make sure the device is unlocked. When the device is locked, an orange bar is visible. When it is unlocked, that bar is not visible. The iPod needs to be unlocked in order to power off. Locate the "play/pause" buttons. These are located at the bottom of the control wheel. Press at the "play/pause" section of the wheel and hold for a few seconds. Your iPod will power off. Do not touch the wheel again after powering off, as this will power the device back on. Locate the "hold" or "lock" switch again. Slide the bar to the locked position so that the orange bar is visible. This will prevent your iPod from powering on in your purse or pocket and wasting battery time.

I got a new ipod 8GB for Christmas. It is frozen and I have tried pressing top button with start button simultaneously. The battery comes up then the slide arrow that says slide to unlock but arrow won't...


You may need a new touch screen as yours seems to be messed up in some way. Try pressing the home button twice when the slide to unlock screen comes up. Hope this helps!

Its frozen


hi there, try moving the lock switch to the lock position and then to the unlock position, and then hold the menu and center button at the same time, this is called a reset and should fix the problem.

It will come on to the main page but the click wheel won`t move


Look on top of the ipod to see if the switch color is orange, which means the ipod is locked.  Switch the thing the other way to unlock.  Also, make sure you got the latest software updates for the ipod to fix click wheel sensitivity issues.  You can also do a reset- push the center button and menu button at the same time until the apple logo appears.  Then you can release your death grip on the thing.  Take the thing back to the store if your within your warranty and have them deal with it if you still got problems.  Cheers.

Operate an ipod


To get it unlocked: Find a black (or silver) oval switch on it. Move the switch to the left and orange will appear. Your ipod will be unlocked.

To scroll through things: Move your finger around the black circle.

To select something: Press the center black button.

To shut your ipod off: Hold down the pause button (button on bottom of scroll circle) for three seconds. Then switch the hold button to the right to lock it.

To pause something: Press the pause button (button on the bottom of the scroll circle).

I hope my solution was helpful. Please rate it.
