Ipod disabled


Like all electronic devices, iPods sometimes freeze and become unresponsive.
Sometimes iPods lock up when they're dropped on the ground or come in contact with water, but less destructive accidents may also cause them to stop working.
All versions of the iPod have a way to reset their hardware should they stop playing music or refuse to turn off.

Check the "Hold" switch on the top case of your iPod to be sure it isn't activated.
An iPod will appear frozen and unresponsive if this feature is activated.
A lock symbol will appear on your iPod's screen if it is in Hold mode.
Switch the "Hold" button on and off once. Place one finger on the "Menu" button and another on the center button.

Press both buttons at the same time and hold them for up to 8 seconds.
Release the "Menu" and center buttons once the Apple logo appears on your iPod's screen.
Try releasing the buttons and pressing and holding them a second time if the logo does not appear, as it can sometimes take several tries to reset a severely frozen iPod.
Press and hold the top button and the center "Home" button on a frozen and unresponsive iPod touch to reset it.
Hold the buttons for at least 10 seconds and wait for the Apple logo to appear on the screen, then release the buttons.
Connect your iPod to its powerblock or a computer if it is still frozen.
Wait 5 minutes and then try to reset it.
Sometimes an iPod can appear frozen when its battery runs out and just needs a few minutes of power to start working again.

Ipod 4th gen nano is frozen on the language selection screen.


That could be one of two problems: Either the cord of the click wheel has been disconnected from its socket which will be an easy fix and you only have to pay labor, or you may just need a new click wheel which should still be cheap.

Frozen Screen I have a frozen screen which says "Disk Mode", then there is a large "tick" in the centre of the screen, and another message saying "OK to disconnect". Nothing I try unfreezes this - I have...


I do not know which ipod you have, but here are instructions on how to get a nano in and out of DISK MODE:



To turn iPod Disk mode off:
  1. Toggle the hold switch on and off
  2. Press and Hold the Select and the Menu button for more than ten seconds
  3. The normal selection screen should appear, your iPod is out of Disk mode.
To turn iPod Disk mode on:
  1. Toggle the hold switch on and off
  2. Press and Hold the Select and the Menu button for six+ seconds
  3. Release both buttons when the Apple logo appears
  4. Press and Hold the Select and Play button until the Disk Mode text appears.
If it does not work, you may need to reset your ipod. The following link has extensive instructions on that procedure for many types of ipods.
Good luck my friend!
