I had an iPod nano that I accidentally put thru the laundry that occasionally would do the same thing after I had dried it out and recharged it. I speculated that mineral contamination from the water got into the case and messed up the control switches or their associated circuitry. I had a bit of luck tapping it face-down onto a padded but solid surface (some thin felt in my case, but about anything would work). That would sometimes make it stop. If it had gotten annoying enough and I hadn't lost it, I was going to try some more drastic measures like dipping it in some alcohol like is used for cleaning electronics (don't remember the type, but it doesn't leave a residue when it evaporates) just to see if it might get rid of whatever was going on inside the case. That would be pretty extreme and an act of desperation, since it runs the risk of ruining the iPod. Good luck.

Locked ipod nano


Did you first slide the hold switch to HOLD and then back before holding the menu and center buttons down together? That worked for my iPod nano 4th generation after it "locked up" and became non-responsive.

My son recieved an ipod nano 4 gig for xmas. it had some info written in japanese on it. i formatted the ipod and tried to sync it with my laptop to fill it with songs. the ipod attempted to auto sync and...


when you plug the ipod into the computer, itunes should automatically open. Right click on the image of your ipod and select sync music, a page should come up with options to auto sync or manually sync with a playlist of your choice. Choose which playlist you want to sync the ipod with and then select sync. If you are having trouble with itunes recognising the ipod then try resetting it then plugging it back into the computer. You can reset the ipod by
  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. (from apple.com)

I turned on my Ipod nano and it froze..


Refer to your manual for the details - A simple reset will probably work. Running Mp3 players on low batt can cause all sorts of goofiness.

Remember these five basic suggestions if you have a problem with your iPod nano. If
one of the following doesn’t help, read on for solutions to specific problems.
â Reset your iPod nano. See “General Suggestions,” below.
â Retry with a different USB port if you cannot see iPod nano in iTunes.
â Restart your computer and make sure you have the latest software updates
installed.
â Reinstall iPod and iTunes software from the latest versions on the web.
â Restore your iPod nano. See “Updating and Restoring iPod Software” on page whatever.

IPod 3rd G Nano syncing problem

1 Answer

10sec play


try reseting it. then resyncing your ipod. to reset it, simply push the middle button down, and the menu button at the same time. a few seconds later and the ipod should reset. then sync the song that had the problem onto the ipod and see if it works. (no point in syncing all your songs becuase if reseting it doesnt work you wasted alot of time syncing songs for nothing)

best of luck : )

IPod nano 4gb Not working, fully charged but won't power up


First make sure your hold switch isn't on. It's on the top or bottom and slides back and forth. It needs to be switched to the left. Once it is to the left, here's how you reset:

You can reset your ipod by holding down the menu and select (round button in the center) buttons down for at least 10 seconds. You'll see an apple logo flash, that's when you stop pressing the buttons. It will shut off, then back on.
