First thing to try is a reset

To reset your iPod:

  • 1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
  • 2. 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.

Turn the iPod off, then push the menu and the play button as you connect it to the computer. That will force-connect your iPod to the computer so you can restore it. AFter that you should be up and running again. If not you may have a hard drive or hard drive cable issue, there is an iPod repair service that can help you with that or a free ipod repair guide, if you want to do it yourself

    To clarifiy more: you have to hold the menu and the play button simultaneously. Press both of them down, before you plug in the USB cord. When you plug in the cord, keep holding both buttons firmly for about 10seconds as the iPod starts up. If everything goes well, the iPod will switch to a black and white screen with a "do not disconnect" symbol and appear in iTunes to be restored.

Frozen fuzzy screen i4

Hold down the Sleep/Wake and Home button until your see the White Apple appear on the phone and that should reset it without the phone losing any information. If that doesn't work you might need to put the phone into DFU mode and restore with iTunes.

Try resetting the ipod while its connected to the computer by holding both the menu and center button at the same time for 6-10 seconds until you see an apple appear on the screen. You may need to repeat the reset. If this fails your looking at a hardware issue most likely. Good Luck.

Frozen Apple Logo

if itunes recognizes the phone use the restore option if not you need to perform a force recovery mode. to do this hold power and home screen buttons until the screen resets when it does keep holding the home screen button and plug in the phone to the computer after a few seconds itunes should see a phone in recovery mode and force you to do a restore. if that does not work you might have a hardware problem and will need to go to a store.
