Ipod nano 3rd gen has frozen and wont do anything!

Make sure your iPod is not on hold by sliding it on then off again.
Hold the Menu and Center button until you see the Apple logo on your screen and it should restart and come on back to normal.

My fourth gen ipod nano still plays music but the display screen does not work. The screen is grey. I tried to charge it and still nothing happens.

If you hold the middle button with the menu button for roughly 20 seconds the Apple logo will show and the device will reboot. Wait for it to reboot and it should be ok.
If this doesn't not resolve the problem it could be possible that the screen is damaged in some way.

My ipod nano 2nd gen's screen won't display anything..

I have had this problem recently myself and would like you to know that it is possible to fix. The white screen error or otherwise known as "white screen of death" is caused by the lcd color screen on the ipod itself. That is why its functions still work but the screen does not. Once you replace the color screen it will be as good as new.

Ipod nano screen powered on but nothing being displayed

You can replace the LCD display screen. There are several websites out there that sell the parts and the cover removal tools. It's really not that hard to do, but it runs between $50-100. Type in "Ipod parts" and you'll get several hits for prospective vendors.
