Question about Apple iPod MA446LL/A MP3 Player

1 Answer

I think I have messed up!!

Have just bought an Apple IPOD off ebay and switched it on but everything is in Chinese!! I think on the first menu I have pressed the wrong language key but now I dont know what to do and cant understand any of it so dont know which buttons to press. Is there a reset key, I am not even sure which language I have chosen but looks chinese.

I can definitely Fixya!
Ill walk you through it.
Get on the main menu screen.
Settings if the 5th one down on the main menu
Language is the 13th one down on that Settings page.
See if you can do it that way if not. at the bottom of the settings page regardless of language it should say "Reset all settings" and that should let you choose a language.

If none of these work and you dont mind restarting all over with your ipod you can Visit apples page about how to reset an ipod. ( http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1339?viewlocale=en_US ) After reset it will allow you to select your desired language. which im assuming will be English.

My iPod Nano Died And I Just Bought A New USB Cord And It Wont Charge Or Turn On...It'll Just Show A Little Apple For 2 Seconds Then Go Back To A Black Screen...How Can I Fix This.!?


Welcome to Fixya

Looks like the software just hanged-up on you. Try to reset the Ipod by following the procedures below.

1st option:
Turn the Hold switch on, then back to off.
Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for 10 seconds (until the Apple logo appears).
You may need to repeat the reset several times.
If the reset doesn't help, then put the iPod into forced disk mode.

2nd option (Disk Mode):
Plug the iPod into a high-powered USB port, let it sit for 2 hours, then disconnect it. If you have a wall charger, plug in the iPod, then follow these steps while it is still plugged in.
Turn the Hold switch on, then back to off.
Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons until the Apple logo appears
Immediately switch your figures to press and hold the Select and the Play/Pause buttons until "Disk Mode" appears at the top.
For a lot of people, this solves the problem. Connect the iPod to the computer and (assuming it shows up) reset the iPod again to get it out of Disk Mode. If at this point you still have the white screen, restore the iPod using the restore function in iTunes under the Summary tab (this will erase everything on the iPod and put it at factory settings).
Note: Do not disconnect or eject the iPod until the store is totally done. After you think it's done, wait another five minutes.

Cheers!

My ipod nano is randomly messing up. It is


I would reset the nano by doing the following:

Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)

Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.

If this does not work go to the following webpage which may help you more

I have the white screen on my ipod nano 2nd gen i tried the reboot, restore, debug everything i cant see any logos text or anything i cracked my old screen ao i bought this put it in and bam white screen...


Hi.

This is probably caused by not allowing the firmware update to finish the installation before disconnecting the iPod. Try these steps:


Reset the iPod:
  1. Turn the Hold switch on, then back to off.
  2. Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for 10 seconds (until the Apple logo appears).
  3. You may need to repeat the reset several times.
If the reset doesn't help, then put the iPod into forced disk mode.

Put iPod into Disk Mode:

Apple suggests that you ensure your iPod is charged before following the next step. How exactly you check a charge on an iPod screen that is completely white has yet to be revealed. But hey, give it a shot anyway. Plug the iPod into a high-powered USB port, let it sit for 2 hours, then disconnect it. If you have a wall charger, plug in the iPod, then follow these steps while it is still plugged in.
  1. Turn the Hold switch on, then back to off.
  2. Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons until the Apple logo appears
  3. Immediately switch your figures to press and hold the Select and the Play/Pause buttons until "Disk Mode" appears at the top.

For a lot of people, this solves the problem. Connect the iPod to the computer and (assuming it shows up) reset the iPod again to get it out of Disk Mode. If at this point you still have the white screen, restore the iPod using the restore function in iTunes under the Summary tab (this will erase everything on the iPod and put it at factory settings).

Don't disconnect or eject the iPod until the store is totally done. After you think it's done, wait another five minutes

Ipod in chinese dont know how to switch back to english.


If you accidentally set iPod nano to use a language you don’t understand
You can reset the language.
1 Press and hold Menu until the main menu appears.
2 Choose the sixth menu item (Settings).
3 Choose the last menu item (Reset Settings).
4 Choose the first item (Reset) and select a language.
Other iPod nano settings, such as song repeat, are also reset.
Note: If you added or removed items from the iPod nano main menu (see “Adding or
Removing Items on the Main Menu” on page 11) the Settings menu item may be in a
different place. If you can’t find the Reset Settings menu item, you can restore
iPod nano to its original state and choose a language. See “Updating and Restoring
iPod Software” on page 69.

Good Luck and Please Rate FixYa!

Changed language to french!


Disconnect your iPod from your computer, then press the Menu button until the menu title says "iPod," regardless of the language displayed. This means you are at the main menu.

  1. Scroll down to the last menu option but don't select it.
  2. Scroll up one menu item. This should be Settings.
  3. Press the Center (Select) button. This takes you to the Settings menu.
  4. Scroll down to the last menu option but don't select it; in English, this is the "Reset All Settings" option.
  5. Scroll up to the third menu item from the bottom one. This should be Language.
  6. Press the Center button to select Language.
  7. Select your preferred language from the list.
