Step 1:
Attach a USB connector to the iPod and plug it into a USB connection on a computer for power, or into a stand alone USB charger plugged into a power strip for electrical power. Pick up the iPod. Move the "Hold" switch at the top of the iPod to the "Locked" position so that an orange color appears by the switch. Return the switch to the "Unlocked" position. Repeat this process. Press and hold the "Home" button and the button at the top right corner together if using a fifth generation iPod, iPod Nano, iPod Mini or iPod with a click wheel. Press and hold the "Menu" button and the "Play/Pause" button together if using an iPod Touch. Press and hold the "Menu" button and the "OK" button together if using an older iPod. Continue holding the buttons together until the screen flashes and then displays the iPod name and the Apple logo. Release the buttons. Wait as the iPod resets itself and turns itself back on. Leave the iPod connected to the USB connector so that it can fully charge the battery. Remove the iPod from the USB connector. Navigate to a song using the menu selection and play some music

Tip

The battery of my iPod is not charging


<p>When you buy an iPod, the device comes with cables that connect the charging device to the computer. When the iPod battery is low, you can recharge by plugging into your desktop or laptop. But sometimes, when you connect your iPod to your computer, the battery charger. According to Apple's site, some problems may prevent your iPod from charging properly. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Connect your iPod USB charging cable only one USB port on the computer itself. External port devices, such as a USB hub, do not provide enough power to recharge your iPod. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Connect the iPod firewire charging only one firewire port on your computer. Like USB, Firewire ports are not enough of a load to the battery of your iPod. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Disconnect the computer from sleep when the computer set to sleep after a certain time. An iPod can only load on a computer that is connected and not in sleep mode. To enable sleep mode on most computers, you can move the mouse or press the power button once. Hold the power button, which usually turns off the computer. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Turn the iPod off and on when the unit is frozen. A frozen iPod is not charging. If the unit is still frozen when you turn it on again, restart the iPod by pressing the "Hold" switch to "On" and then back to "Off" and press and hold a "Menu" and "Select" buttons simultaneously or " Start "and" Menu "button. Hold the buttons until the Apple logo appears on the screen. <br /> <p><br /> <p>5. Set the system up-to-iPod charger so that when using a Windows 2000 computer. In preparation for the system to load the iPod device to the unit with the charging cable, launch iTunes and "iPod" in the left pane to "Settings" tab to go, check the box next to "Enable Disk use", and click the "Apply" button. Once the configuration is in place, the iPod will charge as normal. <br />

Plug the iPod USB cable into the bottom of your iPod. Plug the other end of the iPod USB cable into a free USB port on your Mac or PC. Open the iTunes application by using the dock icon on a Mac or the start menu on a PC. Click on the name of your iPod under the "Devices" list in the main iTunes window. Click on the "Sync" button to create a connection between the computer and the iPod. Click on the eject symbol after the syncing process is complete, and then unplug your iPod from the computer. The lock code has been reset; when you go to disable the iPod again, you will be prompted to choose a new four-digit code. hope this helps

REBOOT IPOD


which model ipod they all have different ways to reset usually through iTunes


The iPod A1136 is the fifth generation iPod from Apple that uses a click wheel to scroll through your device's media library, and may occasionally lock up when you attempt to play a song or display a photo. This error error occurs when the hard disk is unable to access the information and stalls while opening a file. A reset of the device usually corrects the problem, as it clears the device's memory and any errors. Check your iPod's buttons to determine if the cause is due to a hardware error before resetting the device, as the problem may be due to the iPod's hold switch. Slide the hold switch at the top of the iPod to the right, and slide it back to the left to ensure the switch is in the off position. Hold down the center button in the click wheel, and at the same time hold down "Menu" on the click wheel. Continue to hold the iPod's buttons until the device's screen shuts off, turns back on and shows the Apple logo. Plug the iPod's connector cable into the dock connector on the bottom of the iPod. Plug the other end of the cable into your computer's USB or FireWire port to charge the iPod. Wait at least two hours for the iPod to charge. Launch iTunes on the computer, and click "Controls" of the iTunes menu. Click "Eject iPod" in the sub-menu to disconnect the device. The iPod takes four hours to completely charge its battery.
Hope this helps.

My ipod 3rd generation has a white screen and it beeps twice


tray this first. Rest the nano
  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.

After plugging in Nike attachment nano wont even switch on


I don't know what the Nikec onnector is or does, but I can help you, if you think your ipod is dead. This happened to me to. I was listening to it when I arrived at my destination, and I thought I turned it off and I put it in my pocket. Later that day when I went to listen to it, it wouldn't turn on at all. Aparently, it had stayed on. Hold the pause button for five to ten seconds. The apple symbol will appear on your ipod. Immeadility put it in your docking station before it goes away. Your ipod will turn on, and itwill start charging.

I hope this helps. Please rate my solution.

Won't start.


To reset an iPod with a Click Wheel, including: ipodnano3.jpg ipodclassic.jpg icon_ipod_5g.gif ipodnano2.jpg ipodnano.jpg ipodphoto.gif ipodg4.gif ipodmini.gif
  • iPod nano (3rd generation)
  • iPod classic
  • iPod (5th generation)
  • iPod nano (2nd generation)
  • iPod nano
  • iPod with color display (iPod photo)
  • iPod (Click Wheel)
  • iPod mini
  • iPod mini (2nd generation)
  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 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.
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.
