Question about Apple iPod MA446LL/A MP3 Player

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.

Ipod will not play properly after connected to Vm9512


Well, the screen issue you are describing with the ipod sounds like the ipod's clickwheel is malfunctioning. A malfunctioning clickwheel will allow you to reset the ipod, but not actually make selections. At this point, you can either replace the clickwheel or if your ipod is under warranty, take it in for service.

*I am assuming that you are actually resetting the ipod correctly. For example, when reset, after bootup, the ipod will ask you to select a language. If you are not getting to that screen when you "reset" it, then you are likely doing it incorrectly. If that is the case, I'd suggest checking your HOLD button before suspecting a bad clickwheel. Since there are slightly different procedures for resetting ipods depending on model and generation, I'd suggest doing a search online (or going to Apple's website) for instructions on how to reset your particular model. Note that ipod generation can be easily found printed on the back case of the ipod.

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.

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.
