Question about Apple iPod nano MP3 Player
Ok so i have the Ipod nano chromatic. the yellow one. one day I was listening to music and my ipod just went black. i mean i could still hear the music but then i shut my ipod off and tried to turn it back on but it wouldnt. i tried charging my ipod in my ipod dock but that didnt work so i connected it to my computer. yes, itunes did pop-up but it told me my ipod was going through recovery and would need to be restored. so i restored it. after the restoring procedure is finished it tells me the same thing over and over and over again what do i do now? ive already tried the menu and centre button thing and switching the hold button on and off and charging my ipod and restoring it, none of those solutions worked. is there another solution in fixing my ipod!??!
You will want to attempt to force the iPod into disc mode before restoring. This should solve your issue.
Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Set it to Hold, then turn it off again.) Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for at least 6 seconds until the Apple logo appears. When the Apple logo appears, release the Menu and Select buttons and immediately press and hold the Select and the Play/Pause buttons until the Disk Mode screen appears.
Connect the iPod to your computer; the screen on the iPod will change and say "Do not disconnect" If you are having difficulty putting the iPod model into disk mode, set it on a flat surface. Make sure that the finger pressing the Select button is not touching the Click Wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Play/Pause button toward the outside of the Click Wheel and not near the center.
If you are still unable to put your iPod with a Click Wheel into Disk Mode, use one finger from one hand to press the Select button, and one finger from the other hand to press the Play/Pause button.
Please let me know if this did not resolve your issue. :)

Send it in for warrenty? if not, then you could try reformatting the whole ipod itself then factory restore it?
Plug your ipod in the computer > my computer > Right click on your ipod > Reformat. This will clear your WHOLE ipod, keep the the settings recommended selected, then factory restore it.

Hmmmm have you tried going online to the apple website to see what they have to say about it? but my best guess would be taking it to an apple store and ask them there, that way they will tell u exactly what to do. and you just might get hooked up with a new one!

Your ipod is toast, either the flash drive is bad or the motherboard is bad. it should still be under warranty.
send it in to apple for repair. if you bought the apple care warranty you can go into a store and they will replace it.
either way, it's worth sending it in, go to apple.com and click on support and look up service

Maybe the screen blew out

Your docking stations support the previous generation nanos but not current. If you can, return the docks otherwise you'll have to fork over the cash for a new one.

Hello, I've had exactly the same problem, and I got a bit bad news for you. Don't know how much you can call this a "Solution" but it worked for me. Get back to the shop were you bought it and show them you problem, I'm sure you'll get a new one back, because as they said on the shop to me: This is a critical error, which only can be fixed by going manually inside the iPod, and there's really nothing you can do by restoring it, or trying to restart it.
I know it sucks, but thats the thruth, but as I said before, you'll probably get a new one back, or at the worst case they will send it to fixing, and you have to wait like 2-3 weeks before you get it back, fine as new.
Hope it helps :)
