It seems to be frozen

It's frozen on one song and does not respond even to turn off. When I connect it to it's host Apple computer the computer isn't recognizing it, consequently I can't re-set it.  Help!

Turn the hold switch from on to off, a few times and leave it in the off position.
Then press and hold down the center of the main button and the menu button at the same time. Hold them down for around 10 seconds or until you see the apple logo.
Works best setting it on a desk or table.
It it still acts stupid, repeat this.
This procedure is called a hard reset. I would get rid of that song too. Its probably corrupted. If its itunes music, they won't charge you.

Nano is frozen in a song. No sound. Won't shut down or respond to any function. Doesn't show up on computer when plugged into USB.


Have you already attempted to reset the iPod?
If not you will want to attempt that as your first step towards resolving this issue.
To do so you will need to simply press and hold both the center and menu buttons for at least ten seconds or until the apple icon appears on the screen.
If this does not resolve your issue please do let me know.

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.

Player frozen, green light on


i had my GFs mp3 player and it was flashing green light, not solid, but still was frozen and couldnt even bring it up on my computer after plugging in the USB cable. but i just tapped the reset button on top right side, and it stopped flashing and turned off. i turned it back on and started to play normally. not sure if it will be the same since the light situation is different, but the reset button worked for me. good luck

Failing that, take it back to an Apple Store for replacement without its warranty.

Try a reset

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.

Tip:
  • 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.

No response


Ok, What we need to do is do a simple test. First hold the power button for 15-20 seconds, then hold the centre enter button for 15-20 seconds. Keep doing this and it should reset!
