IPod 8G Nano completely doesnt work.

Ok, so my iPod is brand new, and I haven't damaged it in any way, but now it won't turn on at all. I tried resetting it, but that doesn't work. Even when I try and hook it up to my computer it won't work. The sceen just stays black. Also, i tried hooking it up to my iTunes and it still didn't show up on the computer. I need help =[

ResetTo reset your iPod nano:

  • 1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
  • 2. Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 10 seconds. You may need to repeat this step. iPod 8G Nano completely doesnt work. - 5rs_reset_clickwheel.png
    Tip:
    • If you are having difficulty resetting your iPod, set it on a flat surface. Make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel, and not near the center.
    • If the above steps did not work, try connecting iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep.

It sounds like the battery is bad. This is very common for these units - even brand new. Does it work while it is being charged?

I washed my Ipod


Apple won't cover any kind of accidental damage and they will be able to tell that it was water damage if you send it in. The only thing really you can attempt is to put it in a bowl of DRY rice for 24 hours. Sometimes this will pull enough of the liquid out of the internal components. Good luck I learned that trick while working as an apple tech rep and have used the rice trick once on a cell phone and the phone works to this day

Apple Ipod Nano 3rd Gen Volume troubles


Seems like a manufacturers fault on your click wheel. The new nano's have their click wheels held in place with just a strong adhesive so this one might be slightly out of place.Take it straight back as faulty. Make sure inside your headphone socket isn't red else Apple will say it's water damaged.

Did you place the music on your iPod via iTunes, or just drag and drop to the device?

The music must be added through iTunes, or the iPod will just act as an external hard drive--storing your music, but you can't play it.

If you just dragged and dropped, take it off your iPod, start up iTunes, then add the music that way.
