Question about Apple iPod 4th Generation MP3 Player
I was listening to my Ipod and I had it switched onto the lock screen. After the album was done playing I attempted to switch the lock screen off to turn off my Ipod and failed. The Ipod is stuck on lock and I've tried switching the lock and unlock switch back and fourth and it won't do anything. I attempted to hold the menu and center button down for 10 seconds and that did nothing. I most recently plugged the Ipod into my computer and restored the data, and yet it's still froze on lock.

The first thing that every iPod owner needs to know is how to
restart your little MP3 player. Apple has a nice little tech note about
restarting your iPod, and here's the gist of it:

You are doing the reset wrong. Try doing this: Toggle the hold switch and put it back in the off position. Then press and hold the center button and the menu button simultaneously for ten seconds and the apple symbol should come up on the screen. Then it should work like normal. Hope this helps!

You will want to attempt to force the iPod into disc mode before restoring. This should solve your issue.
Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Set it to Hold, then turn it off again.) Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for at least 6 seconds until the Apple logo appears. When the Apple logo appears, release the Menu and Select buttons and immediately press and hold the Select and the Play/Pause buttons until the Disk Mode screen appears.
Connect the iPod to your computer; the screen on the iPod will change and say "Do not disconnect" If you are having difficulty putting the iPod model into disk mode, set it on a flat surface. Make sure that the finger pressing the Select button is not touching the Click Wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Play/Pause button toward the outside of the Click Wheel and not near the center.
If you are still unable to put your iPod with a Click Wheel into Disk Mode, use one finger from one hand to press the Select button, and one finger from the other hand to press the Play/Pause button.
Please let me know if this did not resolve your issue. :)

Listen to the iPod when it is connected to the computer. Do you hear repetitive clicking sounds from the hard drive? If so, your hard drive is broken. It's not too hard to replace the hard drive yourself. Here is an iPod Repair Guide that shows how to open an iPod. Parts are easily available on Ebay. If you want somebody else to do it for you go to iPad Repair
