Question about Apple iPod nano

Washed comes on when plugged into computer and functions but not when unplugged

I washed my ipod nano and now it won't work correctly. It comes on when I plug it into the computer, and functions fine when plugged in, but when I unplug it, even if it is supposedly fully charged, it shuts off and won't do anything.

You should try resetting the ipod by pressing and holding both the menu and center buttons down until you see an apple appear on the screen or for at least ten seconds. If nothing happens by resetting it without being connected to your computer; I would try restoring it using itunes i've copy and pasted those steps below for you

How to restore iPod (ARTICLE NUMBER HT1339) Ensure that you have an active Internet connection
as new versions of iTunes and iPod Software may
need to be downloaded to your computer. Download and install the latest version of iTunes
if you do not already have it installed. Open iTunes, and then connect your iPod to your
computer using the USB or FireWire cable that came
with your iPod. After a few moments, your iPod will appear in the
Source panel in iTunes. Select your iPod in the Source panel and you will
see information about your iPod appear in the
Summary tab of the main iTunes windows. Click the Restore button. You will be prompted
with one or more restore options that may prompt
iTunes to automatically download the latest iPod
Software. The 4 possible restore options are: Restore Option 1: Restore - Restores with same iPod Software
version already on iPod. Restore Option 2: Use Same Version - Restores with same iPod
Software version already on iPod even though a
newer version is available. Restore Option 3: Use Newest Version - Restores with the latest
iPod Software available. Restore Option 4: Restore and Update - Restores with the latest
iPod Software available. If you are using a Mac, a message will appear
prompting you to enter an administrator’s name and
password. A progress bar will appear on the computer screen
indicating that the first stage of the restore
process has started. When this stage is completed, iTunes will present one of two messages on screen
with instructions specific to the iPod model you
are restoring. Restore Instruction 1: Disconnect iPod and connect
it to iPod Power Adapter (typically applies to
older iPod models). Restore Instruction 2: Leave iPod connected to
computer to complete restore (typically applies
newer iPod models). During the stage 2 of the restore process, the
iPod will show an Apple logo as well as a progress
bar at the bottom of the display. It is critical that the iPod remains connected to
the computer or iPod Power adapter during this
stage. Note: The progress bar may be difficult to see
since the backlight on the iPod display may be
off. After stage 2 of the restore process is complete
and the iPod is connected to the computer, the
iTunes Setup Assistant window will appear asking
you to name your iPod and choose your syncing preferences
similar to when you connected your iPod for the
first time.

If after a reset and restore it still will not work while not connected; I would try putting it in a DRY bowl of rice over night. You may still have moisture in the ipod. Usually rice works pretty good for this issue. Hopefully, the ipod wasn't damaged and this helped you out. Cheers :)

Unlock an iPod Model A1199
Although the second generation iPod Nano (also known as 2G) uses a four-digit pass code that prevents unauthorized access to your iPod by locking the screen, you can also unlock the device by plugging it into your computer's USB 2.0 port.
When the 2G iPod Nano is connected to the computer it is synchronized, and automatically unlocks the screen according to the official Apple site.
In order to successfully unlock the Nano it must be plugged into the primary computer used for synchronizing content.

Click "Start," "All Programs" and "iTunes" on your PC's desktop, or click "iTunes" on the Macintosh's desktop dock.
Plug the iPod Nano's cable into the docking port on the iPod Nano.
Plug the other end into the USB port on the computer to open iTunes.
Click "Controls" at the top of the iTunes' menu, and select "Eject iPod."
The iPod Nano's screen will be unlocked once it is ejected from your computer.

How to Fix a Frozen IPod Nano

iPod Nanos will sometimes freeze up, sticking on one screen or not even turning on at all. If your nano is locking up, there are a few things you can try to get it working again.

1. Turn off the hold button. First of all, make sure that that wasn't the problem--don't worry, we've all done dumber stuff.


2. Cold boot. Assuming that wasn't the problem, flick the hold button on and off a few times, and then make sure it's off. Hold down the Menu button and the middle button button for about 15 seconds; this should reset the iPod nano, which may fix the issue. Make sure that the iPod nano is fully charged before attempting this.

3. Recharge. If that didn't work at all, try plugging the iPod nano into the USB port of a computer, using the adapter that came with it. Be sure to plug directly into the computer, and not through a USB hub. The USB needs to provide adequate power for the iPod nano to function, and it may be unable to do so through a hub. The iPod nano should be recognized by the computer; once it is, you simply need to safely disconnect it in iTunes, and it should be functional. If it doesn't show up on the computer at all, give it about 20 minutes, leaving the iPod nano connected to the computer, as the nano may be under-charged, which requires a few minutes to re-charge. If it's still not working, try plugging the iPod nano into a different computer.

4. Try again. If the Menu + Middle Button fix seemed to work, but just cycled the nano back to one of its starting screens (including the "do not disconnect" or the "loading Apple logo" screen), try that fix again. If it still doesn't work, try to charge it for a while, and then try it once more.

I cannot install music from my computor to my Ipod 4 nano


If you can't connect iPod nano to your computer , make sure;
  • you have installed the latest iTunes software from www.apple.com/ipod/start.
  • Try connecting to a different USB port on your computer. Note: A USB 2.0 port is recommended to connect iPod nano. USB 1.1 is significantly slower than USB 2.0. If you have a Windows PC that doesn’t have a USB 2.0 port, in some cases you can purchase and install a USB 2.0 card. For more information, go to www.apple.com/ipod.
  • iPod nano might need to be reset (see page 64).
  • If you’re connecting iPod nano to a portable or laptop computer using the iPod Dock Connector to USB 2.0 Cable, connect the computer to a power outlet before connecting iPod nano.
  • Make sure you have the required computer and software. See “If you want to double check the system requirements” on page 68.
  • Check the cable connections. Unplug the cable at both ends and make sure no foreign objects are in the USB ports. Then plug the cable back in securely. Make sure the connectors on the cables are oriented correctly. They can be inserted only one way.
  • Try restarting your computer.
