Try holding the wheel down for ages. It might havepopped out of place. Or you could lever it out and raise it a bit. There might be something stuck in it that's clogging it up.

Will not turn on or recognised by my computer


Hi. It sounds like you have an iPod Nano 3rd generation? First thing I would try to do is to disconnect the iPod from your computer (unless it already is), then hold down the Menu button on the iPod wheel (the upper space on it) followed by holding down the Selection button on the iPod wheel (the center button). After holding down these two buttons for 2-6 seconds, it should try to restart again. I would recommend trying to reconnect the iPod to your computer again after doing so, while iTunes is open on your computer.
Good luck, I hope it fixes your problem.

Only turn on de logo apple no more


Hi, NOTE: First make sure that your iPod's hold button isn't on. This is the little switch at the top left corner of the click wheel iPod that you can move to "lock" the iPod's buttons. If this is on, you'll see a little orange area at the top of the click wheel iPod and a lock icon on the iPod's screen. If you see either of these, move the switch back and see if this fixes the problem.

If the hold switch wasn't the problem do the following:


Move the hold switch to the on position and then move it back to off.


Hold down the Menu button on the click wheel and the center button at the same time. Hold these together for 6-10 seconds. This should restart the iPod video. You'll know the iPod is restarting when the screen changes and the Apple logo appears.


If this doesn't work at first, you should repeat the steps.

If this doesn't work, you should try plugging your iPod into a power source and let it charge. Then repeat the steps.


If this doesn't work, you may have a bigger problem, and ought to get more help.

My local time says 0146 on my ipod and i cint change the time


  1. Step 1 Turn on the iPod or access the main menu. Scan down the menu listings for "Settings." Use the click wheel to highlight "Settings." This will pull up a side-bar menu of options for the iPod.
  2. Step 2 Pick "Date & Time" from the list of options on the side-bar menu. Once again you will be given a list of options. Highlight "Set Date & Time" using the click wheel and then select it using the center button.
  3. Step 3 Use the click wheel to change the current minutes setting. When you are finished, press the center button to move on to the hours setting.
  4. Step 4 Use the click wheel to change the current hours setting. As before, use the center button when you are finished. You have set the time on your iPod.

Wheel won`t work


Do a reset- push center button and menu at same time and release when apple logo appears.  Also, make sure you got the latest ipod software updates, cause the updates will fix sensitivity issues. If that don't work then your ipod is fu.k.d up in which you can take it to the Apple store for exchange if your within your one year warranty or you bought an extended warranty.

It will come on to the main page but the click wheel won`t move


Look on top of the ipod to see if the switch color is orange, which means the ipod is locked.  Switch the thing the other way to unlock.  Also, make sure you got the latest software updates for the ipod to fix click wheel sensitivity issues.  You can also do a reset- push the center button and menu button at the same time until the apple logo appears.  Then you can release your death grip on the thing.  Take the thing back to the store if your within your warranty and have them deal with it if you still got problems.  Cheers.

How do I prevent my ipod volume from getting too loud?


First off, use the "MENU" button to navigate to the very top of your iPod menu, then choose "Settings":Within settings, you'll find "Volume Limit": Choose that and you can now specify the maximum allowable volume that the iPod will play by simply spinning the wheel clockwise or counterclockwise:Like your new setting? Push the button in the middle of the wheel to set it, then enter a four-digit combination to lock it in place:"Set Combination" looks pretty cool, actually, kinda like some safe cracking game or something:   

If your ipod is in your pocket, you can use the hold button at the top of the ipod

Ipod video click wheel


Try to restart the Ipod.

Hold the select button and the menu at the same time until you see the screen go off.

If still does not work then try to enter disk mode and see if it works.

Disk Mode:
Reboot the ipod via Select and menu, right away hold the select and play button and hold until disk mode comes on. Does the wheel work?

If still does not work then reboot the ipod again and let it reboot normal to go back in apple firmware. If all buttons are working and none of the above works, I would assume it is not software related.
