80gb ipod video broken clickwheel buttons

I've had my ipod for about a year and haven't experienced any problems, but recently i noticed that I occasionally needed to press the buttons (all of them: menu, play/pause, next track, last track, and select) a few times to get them to respond. This has progressed to the point that now I cannot get any buttons to respond no matter what I do. I can still scroll and change the volume without any problems, but the buttons will not work. I've tried syncing it to the computer but this did nothing. Any help?

Its possible your click wheel has gone bad, what you should try before freaking out is to do a hard reset. To do so hold down the center and menu buttons for 10 seconds. if there is still no response at all, then your clickwheel is fried and you should look online for a new front cover with a new click wheel.

How to defreeze an ipod and how to make the computer recognize the ipod?


Make sure the HOLD switch on the top is in the "off" (unlocked) position i.e. the orange indicator should be hidden from view. If the iPod is switched on then try pressing and holding down the play button on the clickwheel for a few seconds and see if it switches off. If it is now switched off, press and hold down BOTH the centre button and the menu button on the clickwheel for about 10 seconds. Try this a few times and if it still doesn't resolve the issue, connect your iPod to the data cable onto your PC/Laptop and start iTunes. You can then use the RESTORE facility within iTunes to return your iPod to its factory settings. WARNING! This will remove any existing tracks you have stored on the iPod.

1st Gen. Ipod Nano wheel control wont work


Thanks for the questions it seems that you might have to do a restore on iTUNES 7.6 which is the newest Version. Also when you do a Restore it sets the Buttons inside the Logic Board back to original, but make sure to back up your music or you will lose everything. Hope this helps. Also these guys on EBAY.COM do iPOD repair Service their Seller name is HOTSELLER1_2007 they have helped thousands of people with their iPODS check them out!!!!

What is the "Clickwheel"? How is it different from the "Thumbwheel"?


The revolutionary "Clickwheel", introduced with the now discontinued iPod mini and also used on all subsequent iPod models (except the iPod shuffle), places pressure sensitive navigation buttons underneath the scroll wheel. The "Thumbwheel", introduced with the original iPod and used on the second and third generation models as well, is designed for one handed selection of song tracks and other information, but navigational buttons (play/pause, previous, next, menu, and select) are each separate buttons placed either around or above the "thumbwheel", depending on model.
