Question about Apple iPod nano

1 Answer

Dead ipod My 18 month old ipod nano won't turn on. There's no water damage (I checked the pink thing in the headphone jack). It won't turn on by itself, on the docking station or when plugged into the computer. It won't turn on when I hold down the menu and play buttons either - any ideas ?

My 2g ipod touch is bricked on the apple screen and i dont know what to do


Your ipod can go into paper weight or brick mode after dropping it or exposing it to moisture ie. water. Look down the headphone jack with a flash light and see if the little rectangular water sensor is white or pink. White means that your good and pink means the water sensor has been triggered and the unit has been exposed to excessive moisture. Here's the kicker- Apple's 1 year warranty does not cover water damage so your fu.kd. But if your still within your year warranty or you got an extended warranty, then just take the thing back to the Apple store and exchange it out if the water sensor is not pink.

My Ipod fell into the sink with water What Should I do


Forget the previous ******** suggestions.  Turn your ipod off immediately, dry it up as much as you can, then throw it in a ziplock bag filled to the top with rice and leave it there for a week and don't touch the thing.  You will notice that restaurants fill their salt shakers with rice.  The rice is there to totally absorb all traces of moisture.
Then look down your earphone jack for a rectangular or semi circle shape between two bronze or copper posts.  If this thing is pink then your screwed, because it tells Apple that the unit has been damaged by water and their warranty won't cover it.  If this thing is white and your within your year warranty, you can just take it back to the Apple store and they will exchange it out for you after looking down the headphone jack for what seems like eternity.  They will reject you if they see any traces of pink so you better hope you get someone who is color blind.  Also, you need to play dumb and ignorant or maybe dumb and dumber when they ask you whats going on.  If you even utter the word humidity, water, damp, or H20 you will be rejected by Apple.
And for Pete's sake don't send this thing in, cause the Apple nerds will have time to open the whole unit up and check ALL the water sensors.  You will be rejected if any one of them is pink.

My Ipod Nano only has sound in one ear. when you turn the headphone jack in the socket it picks up the other sounds ear for a second then disappears. I've tried different using headphones and the samething...


Within the jack, there is a very delicate balance. The same thing happened to the auxiliary jack in my car. Since it is broken, you'll need to either see if you're eligible for an Apple warranty replacement or repair, see if a local electronics place can fix it at a decent price, or spring for a replacement.

Dead ipod 18 months old


Hi, Lets try 1 more step.!!!!!!!!!!

Try connecting ur ipod to ur computer..If desktop, then conenct it to USB port at the rear of ur computer....Make sure ur computer is not set to sleep mode or screen saver mode... Charge it for at least 4 to 8 hrs(without a break)... Then try reseting the ipod when it is connected....

Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
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.

Let me know the status????

Nano shows song playing but nothing happens


Make sure your headphones are working properly by testing with your computer headphone jack.

Is the headphone port on the Nano loose?

Connect the Nano to your iPod dock and see if you can head audio through the docks headphone jack.

If the headphones work, and you can get audio out of the dock headphone port, then there is a problem with your Nanos headphone jack.

I washed my son's iPod Nano and dried it also...


Water damage is not covered under warranty. They have a small indicator in the earphone jack that will tell the Apple Store if it's been water damaged.

Best way to hopefully recover it is to let it sit without turning it on, plugging it in, etc. for at least a week until all water evaporates. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.

Ipod Nano 1st gen 4gb. Headphone jack signal in mono, not stereo.


most likely headphone jack is broken. option one is to take it to the apple store and have them repair it. option 2 is to go on e-bay and buy a replacement jack and try to do it yourself. best option is to sell it on ebay as broken/needs repair. Someone who knows how to fix them will buy it from you and you can use the money you get to buy a good used working iPod. There are always tons of nanos for sale on ebay.
