I bought an ipod from a kid and its locked dont know anything about these darn things


Hi,

To unlock it, you'll need to restore it.

First, you'll need to download iTunes onto your computer (if you haven't already). This will let you put music and other files onto the iPod.
you can download it here by typing in your email address and then clicking "download".

Once you've downloaded and installed iTunes, open it up.
Then, plug your iPod into the computer.

After a minute, your iPod should show up along the left hand side of iTunes, under "Devices" (like "zpod" in this screenshot)

Click on the name of the iPod (in this case, you'd click on "zpod").
This will take you to a new screen that tells you information about the iPod.
Click on the Summary tab (along the top), then click "Restore".


This will clear off all the data on the iPod, including the passcode that has it locked, and basically make the iPod like new, so you will be able to put whatever music, etc. you'd like onto the iPod.


Let us know if you have more questions about it!

I locked my ipod and dont know the password


Connect it to the computer and click Restore. You'll erase all your music but it's the only way to get through without knowing your password.

IPod nano wont play any songs at all


I don't know if you've already done this, but this sounds to me like a software issue on the IPOD.  I also have one of these, and have had to do the following at least once due to lock up problems.  Connect the IPOD to your computer, make SURE all the music you have on the IPOD is on your computer (because your IPOD is about to be wiped clean).  Then, in ITUNES under your IPOD (whatever you named it) on the main screen should be a RESTORE function. Click on that, and follow the directions - this will wipe your IPOD clean, and restore  all factory software and settings.  Reload your music, and try it then - this usually works for me! :)
Good luck wit the IPOD! :)

Press and hold the center button and menu botton down at the same time for about 10 seconds. The iPod will shut down and boot back up. Hope this helps.

How do I Unlock Ipod screen if I forgot the 4 digit password?


See these instructions for unlocking the iPod Screen Lock if you don't know the combination.

  1. You can connect it to the first computer it was every synced with (this should be your friend's computer?) Open iTunes, then disconnect the iPod. It should now be unlocked.
  2. If you can't do that, then you can restore the iPod to factory default settings. Note that this will erase all music and data from the iPod, along with the Screen Lock password.
