Won't restore and scroll has frozen

When connected to i-tunes, told it needs to restore. Scrolling mechanism has stopped working. The on/off first started to play up. I put the i-pod on a docking system to charge it up and play it, it was OK for 10 minutes then froze. On the screen it displays 'need to restore. Now it won' scroll at all

Thank you for using Fixya, your Nano at this point may need to under go a reset.

To do that slide the Hold switch to HOLD and back again. Then press the
Menu and Center buttons at the same time for about 6 seconds,
until the Apple logo appears.

For more information, please refer to this Apple link. IF you have other questions please let me know.

Gigabeat F40 Frozen.

I had the same problem, would not work and when it did it kept scrolling. Trick is to take the front cover off, and see if the control then works. If so, there are two strips on back of the battery as spacers. I took them off, put back together and have not had a problem since!

Ipod touch is disable

Try restoring the firmware, WARNING, this will wipe everything

Press and hold the power button to boot off the ipod, when it's off, press and hold both the home button and the power button for 10sec and release only the power button while continuing to hold the home button, this will put it into restore mode. Connect it to itunes and i tunes will restore the firmware wiping all data and that passcode.

Try restoring it, plug your iPod into your computer and open up iTunes, select your iPod in the list to the left, then click the "Restore" button located right under the big picture of your iPod model. Restoring will take several minutes.

Hope this helps!
