First, make sure the lock slider is in the proper position.  I know, obvious, but you'd be surprised how often this happens.
Next, slide the lock slider to locked and then back.  Then press and hold the Menu and Select (center) button for 6-8 seconds.  Try a couple times if it doesn't work the first time.  The ipod should reset and work.
If that didn't work, you can reset your ipod.  But first, try connecting the ipod to your computer and see if it goes into sync mode. If so, wait for iTunes to load and then eject your ipod in iTunes and see if it works again.
To reset your ipod, slide the lock slider to locked and then back.  Next hold the Play/Pause Button and the Menu button for 6-8 seconds.  You may have to try this a couple times.  The ipod should reset.
The last thing to do is to let your ipod discharge completely by leaving it at the frozen screen.  Once your ipod is out of battery, reconnect it to you computer or a power adapter and let it charge.  Then try to access it again or repeat the steps above.
Good luck!

Nano ipod will not charge and battery is low and on lock and wont disengage! help please.thanks


Important: If your iPod is frozen or won't turn on, it may be because iPod is paused or the Hold switch is in the locked position. If so, a lock symbol appears on the screen. Slide the Hold switch to the unlocked position and check the screen.
To reset an iPod with a Click Wheel: . 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 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.
