Press and hold "Menu" and "Select" buttons at the same time and hold them until it restarts (up to 8 seconds).  
It can be tricky....if you accidentally touch the Scroll Wheel during the process, it won't work.  You might have to try more than once.

How to Replace The iPod Display
Replacing your iPod's screen is actually a lot easier than you would expect. The kind folks at Apple have made access to the inside of the iPod very easy, making for quick upgrades and fixes. While you have the iPod open, you can also upgrade the internal hard drive to a much larger capacity to hold more movies, music and photos. Replacement screens for the iPod are very easy to come by these days, so get a hold of one of those from an online retailer and replace it yourself, instead of getting charged by Apple to do something you can easily do at home.

Replacement screens for the iPod are very easy to come by these days, so get a hold of one of those from an online retailer and replace it yourself, instead of getting charged by Apple to do something you can easily do at home.
2 Use your flat screwdriver and gently insert it into the small crack between the iPod case and the iPod backing. Once you have the tool slightly inside the crack, slide it around the entire iPod to pry the pieces apart. Be very careful not to pull them apart, as there are three ribbon connectors that need to be disconnected first.
3 Lift up the ribbon connector that connects to the hard drive, which is large and blue, and disconnect the hard drive. Release the ribbon that connects to the battery, the smaller blue object, and disconnect it. Release the final ribbon by lifting up its tab. Unhook the final ribbon to disconnect it.
4 Use your Phillips screwdriver to remove the six screws around the iPod front cover. Remove the frame of the iPod front cover. Unhook the screen's ribbon and pull out the iPod screen. Insert your new iPod screen and work backward to put everything back together. Don't forget to connect all of the ribbons

5 Turn on your iPod to test your new iPod screen.

How to Change Your iPod Background ...


How to Change Your iPod Background
With a bit of tweaking, the Apple iPodmag-glass_10x10.gif can be customized in a variety of ways, from the outer covering to the screen fonts. If you're tired of the background, you can use a program called iPod Wizard and some hacked firmware to change how your screen looks. The process isn't very difficult and it doesn't take long to complete. And once you've figured out how to do it, you can change the background to anything you want, whenever you want.


Instructions
Things You'll Need:
  • Computer with a Windows operating system
  • iPod
  • Data cable
  • iPod Wizard
  • iPod background firmware
  1. Step 1 Turn on the iPod and connect the data cable to the iPod and the computer. Start up iTunesmag-glass_10x10.gif. Choose your iPod and then click on the box in the "Options" section that says "Enable Disk Use" and click on "Apply." Disconnect the iPod from the computer when you're finished.
  2. Step 2 Download iPod Wizard, which can be found on the iPodWizard.net forum page, and install it on your computer.
  3. Step 3 Download iPod background firmware from Kankon.org and save it to your desktop or in another place that's easy to remember (you don't want to lose the firmware before you can use it to alter the background on the iPod).
  4. Step 4 Start up iPod Wizard and connect the iPod to the computer. IPod Wizard should indicate that it has located the iPod.
  5. Step 5 Click on the drop-down box beside "Edit Mode" and click on "Firmware File." Click on "Open Firmware" and navigate to the location where you saved the iPod background firmware. Click on "Open" when you've found the firmware.
  6. Step 6 Click on "Write," and then when it's done, click on "Write to iPod." Click on "OK" to make all confirmations and allow the firmware to be written to the iPod.
  7. Step 7 Disconnect the iPod and reset it. The resetting may take awhile, but when the iPod finally starts up, your screen will be different.
jQuery('.article ol .image').each(function(i,e){ var $this = jQuery(this); $this.find('img').error(function(){ jQuery(this).remove(); $this.remove(); }); });

Try doing this: Toggle the hold switch and put it back in the off position. Then press and hold the center button and the menu button simultaneously for ten seconds and the apple symbol should come up on the screen. Then it should work like normal. Hope this helps!

Ipod nano 8GB 3rd generation FROZEN!


You need to reset your ipod. Flip the hold switch on then off, then press select button and menu button at same time. Hold for 10 seconds or so. Ipod should shut off and reboot to apple screen. If this doesn't work first time try again. This should solve any stuck screen problems. Mine was stuck on pioneer screen and this operation fixed it.

Charging ipod 4gb


Yes, the iPod will show that it is charging on its screen. Disconnecting without ejecting can cause data loss of whatever is stored on the iPod
Ejecting is when you remove the iPod from the desktop by dragging its icon to the trash or clicking on the down arrow next to the iPods name from within iTunes.

If you use the library computer, usually a Windows based OS, you'll need to click on the iPod icon from the task tray on the lower right of the screen. You can right click to select the remove option
