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

Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.

That should get rid of the freeze.
If your unproperly disconnecting the ipod from your computer before the itunes
sofware disconnects it for you, then that could be your problem with the freeze ups.

Ipod disabled


Like all electronic devices, iPods sometimes freeze and become unresponsive.
Sometimes iPods lock up when they're dropped on the ground or come in contact with water, but less destructive accidents may also cause them to stop working.
All versions of the iPod have a way to reset their hardware should they stop playing music or refuse to turn off.

Check the "Hold" switch on the top case of your iPod to be sure it isn't activated.
An iPod will appear frozen and unresponsive if this feature is activated.
A lock symbol will appear on your iPod's screen if it is in Hold mode.
Switch the "Hold" button on and off once. Place one finger on the "Menu" button and another on the center button.

Press both buttons at the same time and hold them for up to 8 seconds.
Release the "Menu" and center buttons once the Apple logo appears on your iPod's screen.
Try releasing the buttons and pressing and holding them a second time if the logo does not appear, as it can sometimes take several tries to reset a severely frozen iPod.
Press and hold the top button and the center "Home" button on a frozen and unresponsive iPod touch to reset it.
Hold the buttons for at least 10 seconds and wait for the Apple logo to appear on the screen, then release the buttons.
Connect your iPod to its powerblock or a computer if it is still frozen.
Wait 5 minutes and then try to reset it.
Sometimes an iPod can appear frozen when its battery runs out and just needs a few minutes of power to start working again.

Trying to swicth off my i pod


Slide the Hold button on the top of the iPod so no red mark is visible. Press the main menu button until you see a long list of options (Artists Albums Songs Extras......) use the scroll wheel to find the sleep press and hold the center button in or Locate the Play/Pause button on the iPod. The Play/Pause button is at the bottom of the wheel around the select button. Press and hold the Play/Pause button until the unit powers off, about three to five seconds. Press any button on the iPod to turn the power on.

My ipod touch screen is frozen on "slide to unlock" so I can't slide it.


Restarting the ipod after it has frozen is a simple 5 step process.
  1. Hold down the hold button at the top left of the touch and the home button at the center front of the device.
  2. Continue holding them even after the slider to turn off the touch appears. Do not let go at this point.
  3. A few seconds after this, the screen will flash and go black. At this point, the touch has been rebooted.
  4. Hold down the hold button at the top left until the screen lights up again and the Apple logo appears.
  5. Release the button and let the iPod touch finish booting up and you’ll be ready to rock again

I hope that information above has helped is some way.
If possible please rate this solution.

I plugged in my i pod and came back a hour later and the screen was black and was frozen and none of the buttons would work


you will need to reset your ipod this will not delete songs. 1 Toggle the Hold switch on and off (slide it to HOLD and then back again).
2 Press and hold Menu and the Center button for at least 6 seconds, until the
Apple logo appears.
If iPod nano won’t turn on or respond
â Make sure the Hold switch isn’t set to HOLD.
â The iPod nano battery might need to be recharged. Connect iPod nano to your
computer or to an Apple USB Power Adapter and let the battery recharge. Look for
the lightning bolt icon on the iPod nano screen to verify that iPod nano is receiving
a charge.
To charge the battery, connect iPod nano to a USB 2.0 port on your computer.

'disc mode'displayed in window, large tick and o.k to disconnect. machine will not respond.


Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.) Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step. Tip: If you are having difficulty resetting your iPod, set it on a flat surface. Make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel, and not near the center.

If for any reason this does not resolve your disc mode/frozen iPod issue please do let me know and remember to rate :)

My Ipod is frozen


OK what you need to do is reset it. To do this you will need to hold down the menu and select buttons simultaneously for approx 6 seconds until the apple logo appears on the screen. This should reset and un freeze your ipod.

Try this and let me know how you get on.

IPod click wheel frozen


Try to restart the Ipod.

Hold the select button and the menu at the same time until you see the screen go off.

If still does not work then try to enter disk mode and see if it works.

Disk Mode:
Reboot the ipod via Select and menu, right away hold the select and play button and hold until disk mode comes on. Does the wheel work?

If still does not work then reboot the ipod again and let it reboot normal to go back in apple firmware. If all buttons are working and none of the above works, I would assume it is not software related.
