Resetting volume control on classic ipod


You could try resetting the classic to it's default settings but this will wipe the data on the classic. You do this by connecting your ipod to your computer then under devices click on your ipod and then click restore and follow the instructions to complete the restore process. It may be the case if you have backed up the classic before in itunes you could restore it back to what was on it before but it could again restore the combination to the one you do not know.

Volume wont turn up on my mp3 - volume too low


How to Reset the Volume Limit on the iPod Nano
Resetting the volume limit on your iPod Nano affects everything you listen to, from music to audio books. You can adjust the volume for each individual item on your Nano using the click wheel, but the highs and lows of the sound will depend on the overall volume limit setting. Volume levels will vary with different ear buds and headphones, and using external devices like docking stations to play your iPod Nano will also cause variation in the volume.
Instructions
1 Press any button on your iPod Nano's click wheel and turn it on. Press the "menu" button at the top of the click wheel until you reach the iPod menu.
2 Select "Settings" from this menu by scrolling down until "Settings" is highlighted, then click the center button.
3 Select "Playback" from the menu choices that show up.
4 Select "Volume Limits." You will reach a screen with a speaker icon and dots indicating the level of volume your iPod is currently set on.
5 Scroll the wheel up or back to adjust the volume limits. Press the center button and you will have the option to lock in your settings by selecting a four-digit combination lock. This is not a necessary step; you can click on "done" and finish. Setting the combination allows you to have more control over any future changes to your iPod's volume limits. Scroll the click wheel to select your combination. Press the center button and you will revisit the volume limits; adjust it as you like and press the center button.

Tips & Warnings
If you set up a combination and forget it, you can reset your iPod Nano and start over again. Resetting will not lose any of your downloads, but you will need to restore or reset many of the settings you initially chose when you first set up your iPod.
Changing the volume limits on your iPod Nano covers everything on your player, but the sound levels for songs, audio books and shows will vary based on how they were recorded.

Volume limit password reset on ipod nano


Hi
How to Unlock iPod Volume Limit

Your iPod volume can be limited, and in many instances, a PIN number will be necessary to remove the limit. If you've forgotten or misplaced your PIN, you can still unlock your iPod volume limit using your computer.
1 Connect your iPod to your PC. Make sure your hidden folders are visible.
2 Navigate to the "iPod_control" folder. This will be a hidden folder. Once you've found the "iPod_Control" folder, navigate to the "Device" folder.
3 Locate the file named "_volumelocked" in the "Device" folder. Delete this file.
4 Eject and restart your iPod.
5 Navigate to "Settings" on your iPod. Select "Volume Limit." You'll be able to reset your volume limit with a PIN or password.

Tips & Warnings
Do not listen to your iPod at high levels for long periods of time; doing so can damage your hearing.

I have a 6th generation iPod Nano. This is the fifth one I've had and they all have had the same problem. At some point (usually after I've had it about a month) it starts to turn the volume down...


The only thing I can think of is that maximum limit has been set low and is somehow lowering itself. To set the maximum limit

On the home screen, tap settings
Tap Music, then tap Volume Limit
The volume limit control will then come up to raise the limit move the slider all the way to the right.

If you want to stop the volume limit moving you can put in a passcode by clicking on the Lock Volume Limit and entering a passcode (I'd just put in 1234, so you can remember it easily(

Hope this helps.

The volume control is locked


The ONLY way to resolve this issue is to restore using iTunes. iTunes will restore the iPod. It is recommended to only have one iPod connected to one computer at a time. Also shairring your library should not cause the iTunes to not restore your iPod. If you are not wanting to restore the iPod due to not wanting to loose music, you will have to choose between unlocking the volume limit and keeping music.

Screen lock combination, forgot n tryin to reset but it wont let


You will need to hook your iPod up to itunes and Restore the iPod software to the original factory settings.
When your iPod mounts to iTunes, you will see a button that says "Restore"
Press the restore button and your iPod will be restored back to it's originally state.
Here is the draw back, You will lose your music and have to resync or reload your music
and any other files.
