Like all electronic devices, iPods sometimes freeze and
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
An iPod will appear frozen and unresponsive if this feature
A lock symbol will appear on your iPod's screen if it is in
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
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
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.
Iv only seen that line with a jailbreak found at jailbreak me dot com... I'm not saying you jailbroke your phone but if it is that you might just be able to restore your iPod from your computer. Try it either way.
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
To charge the battery, connect iPod nano to a USB 2.0 port on your computer.
try holding the menu button and the centre button at the same time for a few seconds until the apple logo shows (this shouldnt be flashing), this should unfreeze the ipod, if not, try plugging it into your computer (install itunes first) see if your computer can find it, if it does open the ipod screen in itunes and look for an ipod update, perform the update (if there is one available) this will reset it to factory default with the newer software, if theres no update try to restore ipod.
If these tricks dont work, im afraid its a trip to the apple store, good luck
Just charge the battery until the indicator says the battery is full. well since its been connected for more than enought, disconnect it, you can also try reseting the ipod incase it has frozen
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.
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 the above steps did not work, try connecting iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep.
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 to restore to factory settings if not....u need a new because ur warranty should be up...(not sure)..........once the computer recognise it (disk mode) you can restore.
if a screen with an ipod comes up with x for the eyes its done for! (if cant access disk mode)
