If you get this problem again just follow this and you problem will be solved. :-)

Here's what you need to do;
Go to mycomputer, now go to your ipods drive and then navigate to the hidden folder named "iPod_Control", once there click on the folder "Device". Once there, delete the file named "_volumelocked".
Eject your iPod from your computer. Then, restart your iPod. You can do this by holding down the center and menu button for at least 6 seconds. Once your iPod has rebooted, you can go to the volume limit and then enter a new code.

I have a 6th generation iPod Nano. This is the fifth one I've had and they all have had the same problem. At some point (usually after I've had it about a month) it starts to turn the volume down...


The only thing I can think of is that maximum limit has been set low and is somehow lowering itself. To set the maximum limit

On the home screen, tap settings
Tap Music, then tap Volume Limit
The volume limit control will then come up to raise the limit move the slider all the way to the right.

If you want to stop the volume limit moving you can put in a passcode by clicking on the Lock Volume Limit and entering a passcode (I'd just put in 1234, so you can remember it easily(

Hope this helps.

The volume control on my new iPod Nano isn't working


The iPod Nano has the ability to "lock" the volume of music played at a particular level. Perhaps this only affects the volume of the earphones (versus the internal speaker). Please see "Setting The Maximum Volume Limit" in the user's manual:

The volume control is locked


The ONLY way to resolve this issue is to restore using iTunes. iTunes will restore the iPod. It is recommended to only have one iPod connected to one computer at a time. Also shairring your library should not cause the iTunes to not restore your iPod. If you are not wanting to restore the iPod due to not wanting to loose music, you will have to choose between unlocking the volume limit and keeping music.

Ipod lock code


  1. Enable hidden folders.
    In Windows Explorer,go to "Tools", "Folder Options". Then click on the tab called "View", and under "Hidden Files and Folders", click "Show Hidden Files and Folders".
  2. Navigate ("My Computer" to double-click on the icon of your attached iPod) to the hidden folder named "iPod_Control", and once there click on the folder "Device". Once there, delete the file named "_volumelocked".
  3. Eject your iPod. Then, restart your iPod. You can do this by holding down the center and menu button for at least 6 seconds.
  4. Once your iPod has rebooted, check and make sure that it worked. Simply go into "Settings", "Volume Limit". If it asks for a PIN, you did it WRONG. Retry the above procedure.

How do I prevent my ipod volume from getting too loud?


First off, use the "MENU" button to navigate to the very top of your iPod menu, then choose "Settings":Within settings, you'll find "Volume Limit": Choose that and you can now specify the maximum allowable volume that the iPod will play by simply spinning the wheel clockwise or counterclockwise:Like your new setting? Push the button in the middle of the wheel to set it, then enter a four-digit combination to lock it in place:"Set Combination" looks pretty cool, actually, kinda like some safe cracking game or something:   

If your ipod is in your pocket, you can use the hold button at the top of the ipod
