The battery might have lost all its charge .Most probably there is a problem in the USB jack of the ipod .Try to change the jack and the problem will be solved

I have a flashing apple on the screen of my ipod nano and I can't get it to switch on.

  • Hold down Select / Menu (to reboot the iPod)
  • As soon as the Apple logo appears, hold down Rewind / Select until...
  • see a backwards Apple Logo.
  • At this point, you will have entered Diagnostic Mode. It'll test the RAM, and then tell you to HIT PLAY TO CONTINUE. Hit 'Play'.
  • You'll be in a menu that you advance by hitting FF (Fast Forward). Advance to the 'DISKMODE' entry.
  • Hit 'Select.' This will put you into Firewire Disk mode. The screen should change to the familiar 'Do Not Disconnect' mode. At this point, connect it to the computer.
  • Run the restore utility; it should now recognize the iPod and offer to Restore the factory software. Do so. You'll lose whatever's on it, but you'll avoid having to send it back in to Apple and pay them $49 or whatever to do basically the same thing. :-)

Hanging or apple ipod

Reboot the Nano by Pressing the Menu and Center (Select) together and holding until the screen goes blank. Then let go when you see the Apple logo appear.

That should help.

If that still doesn't then you will have to reset the nano to factory by using the iTunes iPod utility in the iTunes program.

Dropped nano

That is going to have to be repaired. Anything with a sad face on it needs to be repaired by authorized technical center.

Try reseting your ipod

Toggle to hold switch on then off.

Press and hold both the menu and middle button until the screen goes blank.

The apple logo should then appear on startup.

If this fails then you need to replace the touch wheel.
