If reseting and upgrading do not work, you might have physical damaged. There are tiny little ribbon cables inside the unit, which are about the width of a hair strand, and damage very easily when pressed too hard - which is something everyone does the first time that scroll wheel doesn't work. There really isn't much you can do, other than getting it repaired.

Jsut make sure you tried to install the correct updater file first - LOCATED HERE - although it should not affect the scroll wheel - however, you it doesn't hurt to try!

Hope This Helps!

might need to replace the click wheel or you may have a disconnected wheel. if it is not responding at all. the cable inside may have come lose. possibly from shock or vibrations. best bet if warranty void open her up go to you tube and look for open ipod videos and see what you can do. then if you feel you want a pro to fix it try

To reset the nano, you slide the hold button on the top to red then back to black, the hold down the center button and the menu button at the same time for a few seconds. Works for all versions of the nano

Center button and click wheel not working on my ipod nano


Yes, well the exact thing it happening to me. What you could do and see if it works is this: Turn the Screen Lock on, off, and hold the center button and the Menu button. This will hard reset the iPod and use the origonal settings from when you first got your iPod. The second Tip: Take off all of the software, songs, games, ect. in iTunes and reset ALL the settings in iTunes. If this doesn't doesnt work (which it should), your iPod is broken and you need a new click wheel or center button.

My ipod 8GB Nano just all of the sudden stopped working, fully charged, and it will not power back on...nor does itunes show the ipod as a device... can someone please help me quick!


Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.) Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step. Tip: If you are having difficulty resetting your iPod, set it on a flat surface. Make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel, and not near the center.

Do the 5 R's suggested in the user's manual first. If those fail, then the player has an internal problem and needs to be replaced.

  1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
  2. Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.
Tip: If you are having difficulty resetting your iPod, set it on a flat surface. Make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel, and not near the center.
If the above steps did not work, try connecting iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep.
