Do you have a Apple store near you?! If so, bring it there and have them plug it into their system!

SOURCE: Ipod Nano 1GB

Did you try charging it with the USB cord or do you have an adapter that plugs into the wall? If you tried with the USB cord, how long did you let it charge?

There are a variety of things that could be wrong. If the Ipod sat for a long time the battery could be completely discharged. I've not had this problem on the Nano, but on an old Ipod Mini my daugher has I've noticed that sometimes I need to plug it in with a wall adapter to get the battery charged enough to start up quickly.

Forgive me for asking this next question...lots of times I ask these basic question and people get mad, but the key lock is off, right? On my Nano there's a small slider switch on the top. In one position the controls are all locked. Please verify that you've got it set to the right position. Mine is locked when I can see the red dot.

Assuming the battery is not totally shot and the key lock is off, it's also possible that it's just "locked up". To reset the Nano press and hold both Menu and Select (center button) for about 5 or 10 seconds. If the Ipod is alive this will reset it.

From your post, I'm not sure if you mean the Ipod was sitting for a long time without being used. If that's the case and it used to work, and it has not gotten wet or anything, then the most likely problem is a bad battery. There are services on the web you can find who will replace the battery for a fee. If, on the other hand, it just suddenly stopped working and the reset does not help you may have a more serious problem. Unfortunately there's no way to tell.

Now for the editorial section. I don't get paid for this. I know it's a strange hobby, but I lke to help when I can. The reason lots of people won't respond to questions like yours is because there's a real chance that your Ipod battery is dead or the unit is just plain broken. So they offer some suggestions which, obviously, won't work and then they get a bad rating. Even if my suggestions don't fix you problem I hope you'll find them useful in deciding if the Ipod is just plain dead. If you have more questions please ask. Thanks and good luck.

SOURCE: Ipod won't turn on

Try to turn on your ipod by holding the center button and the menu button both at the same time for about 6-10 seconds. Sometimes the hard drive on the ipod likes to freeze and just needs to be reset.

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

Try resetting into disk mode by holding down "MENU" and the centre round button for a couple of seconds at the same time, let it charge for a couple of minutes - important, eject it from your hard drive first, quit all applications that work with your iPod, then press the "MENU" and round button at the same time again press the play button - it should go to a grey screen with a apple on it - re-atach your iPod to the machine again - it should now look like its charging, and should launch iTunes again giving you full functionality to your iPod again - let it fully recharge before unplugging.

SOURCE: New Ipod Nano 4th Gen 16GB has went blank and will not turn on

HI there,

worst case scenario is that a circuit has broken inside. But your ipod will be under warrenty for a year from purchase.

Otherwise, leave the ipod to charge for a long time. Just leave it connected directly to the computer USB port despite not having any change in appearance. Also, don't connect it via a usb hub or through your keyboard. You will need to plug it into your computer directly.

You can also try entering DFU mode. Here is a great step by step guide to do that. http://iphonefreakz.com/beginners-guide/howto-dfu-mode/

Then restore the ipod and update the firmware. Make sure you have the latest version of itunes installed. By checking through software update.


I hope this helps,

Nathan.

Won't turn on


Is your iPod fully charged? Sometimes the batteries become so depleted of charge that an accessory charger won't turn it on.

-Try plugging it in to your computer or a wall charger for a while, time will vary but it may turn on.

-If it is not turning on your computer will never recognize it, thus you won't be able to do a restore with iTunes.

-Try a hard restart as well this could help you.

Hi. I'm using ipod nano. I was listening to it since morning and suddenly it just turn off and i couldn't turn it on back. It cant be charge as well. Can someone please help. I just bought it for a month...


This is a case of your iPod Nano simply not holding a charge, which is why it is turning off on you. I understand you have already mentioned that it is not holding a charge either, but that later trait according to Apple is the issue.

Some of the key steps you can initially attempt to resolve this issue, include making sure when you connect your iPod to your PC (or Mac) to make sure the sync cable is securely seated in the iPod and the USB connector is seated in the USB port of your computer.

If you are using Firewire on your iPod, the Firewire port on your PC may not actually be powered, so whenever you connect your iPod, it may be charging the device.

These are some potential troubleshooting steps you can try, however,if you find these few procedures do not work, click the link below to review the remainder of the recommended troubleshooting steps from Apple in addressing charge or power issues with the iPod Nano.

Can't turn on and can't even charge!


Make sure the hold/lock is not engaged first.
If not, try the 5 R's
The 5 R's for Apple iPods – www.apple.com/support

These are for Nano, but they apply to all iPods:

Reset, Retry, Restart, Reinstall, Restore

Remember these five basic suggestions if you have a problem with your iPod Nano. If one of the following doesn’t help, read on for solutions to specific problems.

- Reset your iPod Nano. See “General Suggestions,” below.
- Retry with a different USB port if you cannot see iPod Nano in iTunes.
- Restart your computer and make sure you have the latest software updates installed.
- Reinstall iPod and iTunes software from the latest versions on the web.
- Restore your iPod Nano. See “Updating and Restoring iPod Software” on page whatever.
