What you do when it does this is hold down the center and menu button and it will restart your ipod, this also helps if it freezes on you.

How to Fix a Frozen IPod Nano

iPod Nanos will sometimes freeze up, sticking on one screen or not even turning on at all. If your nano is locking up, there are a few things you can try to get it working again.

1. Turn off the hold button. First of all, make sure that that wasn't the problem--don't worry, we've all done dumber stuff.


2. Cold boot. Assuming that wasn't the problem, flick the hold button on and off a few times, and then make sure it's off. Hold down the Menu button and the middle button button for about 15 seconds; this should reset the iPod nano, which may fix the issue. Make sure that the iPod nano is fully charged before attempting this.

3. Recharge. If that didn't work at all, try plugging the iPod nano into the USB port of a computer, using the adapter that came with it. Be sure to plug directly into the computer, and not through a USB hub. The USB needs to provide adequate power for the iPod nano to function, and it may be unable to do so through a hub. The iPod nano should be recognized by the computer; once it is, you simply need to safely disconnect it in iTunes, and it should be functional. If it doesn't show up on the computer at all, give it about 20 minutes, leaving the iPod nano connected to the computer, as the nano may be under-charged, which requires a few minutes to re-charge. If it's still not working, try plugging the iPod nano into a different computer.

4. Try again. If the Menu + Middle Button fix seemed to work, but just cycled the nano back to one of its starting screens (including the "do not disconnect" or the "loading Apple logo" screen), try that fix again. If it still doesn't work, try to charge it for a while, and then try it once more.

Grey screen, iPod nano 4g 8gb


Quit trying to charge from the computer, cause a lot of them don't put out enough juice to totally charge the nano.  Turn the thing off and plug this thing into an AC wall charger for about 8 hours.  Then turn the thing on  and press the center button and menu button at the same time to reset the thing.  Then make sure you got the latest itunes edition and plug your cord into the nano and into the computer.  You will be prompted to sync this thing.

I plugged in my i pod and came back a hour later and the screen was black and was frozen and none of the buttons would work


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
a charge.
To charge the battery, connect iPod nano to a USB 2.0 port on your computer.

My Ipod Nano 4G won't open


  1. First make sure that your iPod’s hold button isn’t on. This is the little switch at the top left corner of the iPod video that you can move to “lock” the iPod’s buttons. If this is on, you’ll see a little orange area at the top of the iPod nano and a lock icon on the iPod’s screen. If you see either of these, move the switch back and see if this fixes the problem.
  2. If the hold switch wasn’t the problem do the following:
  3. Move the hold switch to the on position and then move it back to off.
  4. Hold down the Menu button on the clickwheel and the center button at the same time. Hold these together for 6-10 seconds. This should restart the iPod nano. You’ll know the iPod is restarting when the screen changes and the Apple logo appears.
  5. If this doesn’t work at first, you should repeat step 4

Ipod 5th Generation Video froze and is now dead


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 screen stays black


If your screen is black it may be frozen. If so, hold the menu button and the center button below it at the same time. If, this still doesnt work try connecting your iPod to a computer then disconnecting it. Also make sure the battery is charged.

Please rate this solution.

Screen went black while watching movie but light is still on


press the centre button + menu button  /or/   centre button + play button, during 10 seconds, it will restart and luckily it will work ok.
If that doesn't work, connect it to the computer, open iTunes, and  the menu where the ipod is shown click "restore", this will whipe out your ipods memory. If even this doesn't work... take it to an Apple store.

8 GB Ipod Nano went dead and now won't charge


does it work on the charger? if not, then contact apple or your dealer for more assistance or repairs.

If it works on the charger, plays music and so on, your battery is probably dead and you need a new one.
