Re: Apple Nano 2GB screen!!

If your iPod nano is not responding, try to manually reset it. The instructions are in the manual; but I have typed them below for your reference: Slide the Hold switch to HOLD and back again. Then press the Menu and Center buttons at the same time for about 6 Seconds, until the Apple logo appears. Hope this fixes your problem.

My ipod nano keeps frezzing how can you solve the problem?

Hello :

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.
If the hold switch wasn’t the problem do the following :

2: Move the hold switch to the on position and then move it back to off .

3: 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.

4: If this doesn’t work at first, you should repeat the steps .

5: If this doesn’t work, you should try plugging your iPod into a power source and let it charge. Then repeat the steps.

If that didn't help , then you should take your NANO to the service .

good luck .

Well if the screen is not cracked and there is no black on the screen when the ipod is off then the pixels in the screen died. Easily solved, buy a new screen on ebay, I had to replace my ipod nano screen(clasic) because it was cracked, so this should work for you.

IPod Nano 2 GB no power

Try pressing the menu key and center key at the same time and waiting until the gray apple screen comes up. This will reset your settings but I know whenever my iPod goes funky I just do that and it's fine. If that doesn't work contact your local Apple store.
