My volumn on my ipod 4th gen is not working and when i go to settings it only shows languages no volumn setting


One of the major warnings Apple includes with all of its iPods is the permanent hearing damage that could occur if you have the volume on your iPod turned up too high.


To help combat the problem, the iPod comes with a feature that allows you to set a maximum volume level that your iPod can be played at that level is controlled by a combination that can keep others namely children from turning the volume up to dangerous levels.


The good news is, if that combination falls into the wrong hands, it can be reset.


Use your iPod's click wheel to scroll down to "Settings."


Press the center button located in the middle of the click wheel to select the settings menu.

Scroll down to "Playback" and press the center button to select it.


Scroll to "Volume Limit" and press the center button to select it.


Use the click wheel to scroll to the first number of the old combination and press the center button to select it.


Repeat this process for all four numbers of the old combination.


Use the click wheel to scroll to where you want the maximum volume to be set and press the center button.


Use the click wheel to scroll to "Lock" and press the center button.


Use the click wheel to enter the first number of the new combination when the message "Enter New Combination" appears on the screen repeat the process for the three remaining numbers.


Once the four numbers have been entered, your iPod's maximum volume will be set and your password will be changed.

hope this helps

Unlocking iPod

You can unlock iPod in one of two ways:

  • Enter the combination on iPod using the same controls you used to set the combination. If you do not enter the correct combination, the digits onscreen flash red. When you enter the combination correctly, iPod will unlock and return you to the last viewed screen.
  • Connect iPod to the primary computer you use it with (the first one iPod synced with), and open iTunes. When you disconnect iPod from the computer, it will no longer be locked.

If you can't unlock iPod using either of these methods, you can restore your iPod to factory settings. Please note that this will erase all data on your iPod. Afterwards, you can add your music and data back to iPod.

If you want to change the primary computer that your iPod is associated with, do this:

  1. Restore your iPod. Warning: The restore process cannot be undone. All of your songs and files will be deleted. Always make a backup of your important data.
  2. Connect your iPod to the computer that you want to be the primary computer.
  3. Open iTunes and synchronize.

80 GB Ipod Classic shows locked and click wheel not working


Slide the switch on the top of the ipod to where it shows white instead of orange. If it is already off hold, then you may have a broken hold switch.

My ipod has a lock screen and I dont know the combination


There is a hold or lock switch on the side of the player - unlock it. See user's manual to get a visual on where this lock switch is.

If it is asking for a password and you don't have the password, you will have to do a Restore in iTunes to unlock it.

My ipod has been locked and i dont know the password


Ok so, your ipods locked up and you have no idea what 4 digit passcode is. So i know the default is 0000 if that fails, then there could be 999,999,999 combinations. if you dont wanna be sitting there all day trying different combinations then, plug your ipod into the pc YOU SET IT UP WITH FOR THE VERY 1ST TIME, the primary pc. if you no longer have access to this then you can do a full restore of ipod. hope this helped!
