I’ve seen a number of questions on the web related to frozen iPodswhich either get stuck on or off. Holding the Hard Reset buttonsindicated in the previous post will — if the iPod is accepting anyinput at all — force it to do a full reboot. In most cases, the freezeis a one-time issue, and this solution will get you out of thesituation.However, if the iPod reboots and gets stuck again, try resetting ityet again and holding the Disk Mode buttons to force the iPod to becomea simple external hard drive. When connected via USB or FireWire, itcan be Restored with Apple’s latest iPod Updatersoftware. Sometimes a Restore is the best way to get your iPod workingagain, as it wipes the device clean and reloads all the factorysettings. The Restore function is so deep that it will even fix an iPodhard drive which has been completely written over with zeroes!
If the iPod is still locking up, it may be the result of a moreserious problem that can be determined by thoroughly testing the harddrive. Stay tuned for more iPod fixing tips in the very near future.

Hi!

Try resetting it by pressing the center and play button for more than 10 seconds

    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.
    To reset your iPod


    1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
    2. Press and hold the Play/Pause and Menu buttons simultaneously until the Apple/iPod logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.

    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.
    If you are still unable to reset your iPod, use only one finger from one hand to press the Center (Select) button, and one finger from the other hand to press the Menu button.
    When you reset iPod all your music and files are saved, but some customized settings may be lost. Date and time are preserved (unless the iPod reset itself because it had no power and then was reconnected to power). Other customized settings, such as Bookmarks, On-The-Go Playlists, Shuffle, Backlight timer, and so forth are preserved from the last time the hard drive turned on.
    iPod not responding If your iPod does not respond to these steps, see additional steps in the "iPod troubleshooting basics and service FAQ".
    Additional Information Apple releases new versions of the iPod Software Update application from time to time. These later versions may include new functions or improvements to existing features. Learn about updating iPod's software.
    To return iPod to its original factory settings, use the iPod Software Updater utility to restore iPod.



    Please feel free to ask any further questions.

    Thanks

    If keeping the button pressed for a while did not fix the problem, then try the reset suggested on apple website here:

    I quote:

    "Learn how to reset or restart iPod following a freeze. Tip: Check out this helpful movie too.

    If you have an iPod shuffle, click here for reset steps. If you have an iPod touch, see this document.

    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.

    If the iPod is connected to a computer and displays any of the following messages you should eject the iPod from within iTunes instead of resetting it:


    • Connected. Eject before disconnecting

    • Sync in Progress. Please wait...

    • Do not disconnect

    If your iPod is frozen or won't turn on, the steps to reset it vary by model. You can easily tell which iPod model you have if you're not sure."

    If still no luck , then the Ipod is faulty.

Ipod froze


A white screen on an iPod Touch is the sign of a generic error, meaning you won't get a specific error message. Usually when this happens the white screen won't change and the iPod is frozen on that screen. Apple Support outlines a specific series of steps to take to deal with this problem, from turning the iPod Touch off to completely reinstalling the operating system if necessary.

What the White Screen Means The white screen is a sign that a software error has occurred in the iPod Touch. Unless you received an error message first, it's usually something near the root level of the iPod's operating system that caused the iPod to cease functioning normally. Rather than shut off completely, it goes to this white screen to let you know there's been an error. Unfortunately you usually lose unsaved information when this occurs. b> Resetting b> Try turning the iPod Touch off, then on again. This is the simplest way to reset your iPod Touch. If it remains stuck on the white screen, force a reset by holding down the Sleep button (top right corner) for about 10 seconds. The screen will go dark, then the Apple logo will appear. If it turns off and doesn't turn on again, the battery may be too low. b> Restore b> If a manual reset doesn't work and the screen remains stuck on a white screen, you'll need to restore the iPod to reinstall its operating system. Plug your iPod, via its charger cable, into your computer. Open iTunes and click on your iPod, then the "Restore" button on the main screen. b> Problematic Apps b> If you consistently receive a white screen while using a particular app, the app may be faulty or installed incorrectly. Try re-syncing the app to your iPod Touch and see if that solves the problem. Otherwise, you may need to delete the app to avoid the white screen problem.

--please help. i pod 4gb silver has white screen. does not turn off i hear 2 beeps. it stays on with white screen. What do I do?


Hi leahschecter

***White Screen of Death***
This is probably caused by not allowing the firmware update to finish the installation before disconnecting the iPod.
Try these steps.
Reset the iPod:
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.

My 32G ipod touch has a white screen that wont turn off


Thanks for contacting Fixya Support, I am glad to assist.

In order to reset your iPod Touch, you will need to
press in the Sleep/Wake button on the top left of the device, and the circular Home button, located on the front face on the bottom.

Do this for 10 more seconds and the device should shut down/off. Wait a moment and then restart the device.

That should be all it takes to fix the white screen issue.

I hope this helps.

White screen on nano ipod


I have had this problem recently myself and would like you to know that it is possible to fix. The white screen error or otherwise known as "white screen of death" is caused by the lcd color screen on the ipod itself. That is why its functions still work but the screen does not. Once you replace the color screen it will be as good as new.

My ipod nano wont do anything


I 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.
