Question about Apple iPod nano 2nd Generation MP3 Player

1 Answer

Main screen is frozen immediately when I turned it on

I JUST bought this and when I plug it in it says to select language, like it's supposed to. However, it stays frozen on that screen. I cannot press select and the remote won't even work. I know the system works because it is chraging my ipod, but nothing else works. Am I missing something here?

Try doing this: Toggle the hold switch and put it back in the off position. Then press and hold the center button and the menu button simultaneously for ten seconds and the apple symbol should come up on the screen. Then it should work like normal. Hope this helps!

Bought a new 1490Lmt and hit the wrong language and can't get it back to English

  • Press TOOLS (the spanner symbol in the bottom right corner of the screen that displays WHERE TO and VIEW MAP) As it's not in English this may find a bit of trial and error but it should be easy enough to find.
  • Press SETTINGS (the spanner symbol) or LOCALE (the blue symbol on models that don't have a SETTINGS icon)
  • Press LANGUAGE (the lips icon)
This brings you to a screen with 3 items; VOICE, TEXT LANGUAGE and KEYBOARD.
Press VOICE and select a voice from an English speaking country. Press TEXT LANGUAGE and select English or American English if you're in the USA.
If you press KEYBOARD while trying to find one of the other 2 above just select English also.
This should solve your problem

I bought a garmin gps on black friday but it is in spanish setting but i want language in english

  • Press TOOLS (the spanner symbol bottom right corner on the page that shows WHERE TO and VIEW MAP
  • Press SETTINGS (The spanner symbol) or LOCALE on some models (Blue symbol in top right)
  • Press LANGUAGE (the lips symbol)
This will take you to a screen with 3 items on it; TEXT LANGUAGE, VOICE and KEYBOARD
Press TEXT LANGUAGE and select American English
Press VOICE and select the name of an English speaking voice

I realise you may not be able to read the screen if it's in Spanish but by pressing all 3 you'll get the right settings.

Also if you have difficulty finding the screen with the TOOLS icon go to where you can see the map and press the MENU button in the bottom centre of the screen. This will take you to it.

Hi, I bought a GARMIN 215w this afternoon and when trying to set it up mistakenly chose Espaniol rather than English, How can I change the languale set up?

  • On the screen that says WHERE TO and VIEW MAP there's a TOOLS icon (Picture of a spanner.) Press it.
  • Then press SETTINGS, (the spanner icon) or on some models LOCALE (Blue Icon at the top left corner) replaces the SETTINGS icon
  • Press LANGUAGE (The lips icon)
  • On this page you'll see 3 items; VOICE, TEXT LANGUAGE and KEYBOARD
If you need to change the text language press TEXT LANGUAGE and select ENGLISH
To change the voice language press VOICE and select the name of an English speaking voice
If you need to change the keyboard layout press KEYBOARD and select English

If the text language is in Spanish you won't know which icon is which but press each one in turn and you can change each to English. This should solve your problem.

Ipod 4th gen nano is frozen on the language selection screen.

That could be one of two problems: Either the cord of the click wheel has been disconnected from its socket which will be an easy fix and you only have to pay labor, or you may just need a new click wheel which should still be cheap.

Ipod frozen on language screen

I have been reading other posts and supposedly the problem with the language screen is that the link inside the ipod for the lock button has come unhooked and needs to be hooked back. I will post the link so you can read about it for yourself. I think this means you have to open up your ipod. Read some of the posts in this website for more info. No official word on fixing the problem. Just suggestions.
