If you mean it won't turn on, I can help. I think your ipod is dead. This happened to me to. I was listening to it when I arrived at my destination, and I thought I turned it off and I put it in my pocket. Later that day when I went to listen to it, it wouldn't turn on at all. Aparently, it had stayed on. Hold the pause button for five to ten seconds. The apple symbol will appear on your ipod. Immeadility put it in your docking station before it goes away. Your ipod will turn on, and itwill start charging.

I'm sorry if you meant something else. I hope this helps. Please rate my solution.

I dont know what to do to my Ipod on itunes all it keeps saying is connect to itunes what do i do


Is the Ipod on when you connect it? If so, reset it and connect it again. If that doesn't work, check that the cord you are using isn't broken or your Ipod's jack isn't messed up. If it still doesn't work try a different usb slot on your computer.

I played some game on my touch ipod and the ipod turn off ,now I can't turn on the ipod. I bought the brand new ipod one week ago.


It's possible the battery just died, I would first try just charging it. If this doesn't work plug it into your computer, it might need a jump start. If all else fails, redeem the warranty.

It's stuck and won't play the songs


  1. First make sure that your iPod’s hold button is of. (This is the little switch at the top left corner).
  2. Move the hold switch to the on position and then move it back to off.
  3. Hold down the Menu button on the clickwheel and the center button at the same time. Hold these together for 6-10 seconds. This should restart the iPod. You’ll know the iPod is restarting when the screen changes and the Apple logo appears.
  4. If this doesn’t work at first, you should repeat the steps.
  5. If this doesn’t work, you should try plugging your iPod into a power source and let it charge. Then repeat the steps.

First I would suggest you make sure the iPod is connected correctly, and that you wait until the iPod has finished updating.
If you are sure of that, you can always restore the iPod to it's original settings.
(I would also suggest that you are using the most updated version of iTunes)
But before you restore your iPod, there are a few steps you can take to try and fix this problem.
If you can’t download a song or other item to iPod nano 
The song might have been encoded in a format that iPod nano doesn’t support. The 
following audio file formats are supported by iPod nano. These include formats for 
audiobooks and podcasting: 
 AAC (M4A, M4B, M4P) (up to 320 Kbps) 
 Apple Lossless (a high-quality compressed format) 
 MP3 (up to 320 Kbps) 
 MP3 Variable Bit Rate (VBR) 
 WAV

The most common is to reset the iPod. To do this:
  •  toggle the Hold switch on and off ( Set it to hold then turn it off again) 
  • Then press and hold the Center and Menu buttons for at least 6 seconds untill the Apple logo appears.
If this does not work I would consider restoring. This means you will loose all your music,pictures, videos..ect. But from it sounds, you don't have anything on your iPod to loose.
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.

If your iPod nano won’t turn on or respond
1) Make sure the Hold switch is off.

2) If that doesn’t work, connect iPod nano to your computer’s USB or FireWire port. Your
iPod nano battery might need to be recharged.

3) If that doesn’t work, your iPod nano might need to be reset.

a) Toggle the Hold switch on and off (set it to Hold, and then turn it off again).
b)Press and hold the Center and Menu buttons for at least 6 seconds, until the Apple logo appears.

4) If that doesn’t work, you might need to restore iPod nano software.

IPOD ? playlist backup


If your IPOD is set to automatic song transfer, and you created an ?on the go? playlist, the IPOD will automatically transfer all songs along with the playlist. I haven?t tried the following myself yet, but this is the only way that I can think of: Cancel the auto transfer option ? from the source list in itunes choose the iPod icon and press on the options button. Choose ?manually manage songs and playlists? If it doesn?t work then I guess its more of a one directional thing, that you get more options going from the PC to the iPod then the other way around.
