Question about Apple iPod nano 3rd Generation

2 Answers

Need to unlock the combination for the volume but forgot the 4 digit combination number.

I forgot the combination numbers (4) to unlock the volume control on my 3rd generation Nano. I don't want to lose the songs and I can't really put it back on my computer as I have since filled another ipod with songs. Please help me. Thanx, Vanet

Sadly, the ONLY way to resolve this issue is to restore using iTunes. This will erase all settings and contents. Immediately set a new code after syncing and write it down some where safe. Just in case so if it gets locked again all your covered. Below I posted a step by step on restoring just in case you need the information.
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.

Remove the battery.
Wait for 5 minutes.
Check your phone-sim and memory-sim is inserted correctly.
Replace the battery.
Try one of the following immediately after you turn on the power and while the power comes on...
  • Combination 1 - Volume Up + Camera button.
  • Combination 2 - Volume Down + Power button.
  • Combination 3 - Volume Up + Power button.
  • Combination 4 - Volume Up + Home + Power button.
  • Combination 5 - Volume Down + Volume Up + Power button.
  • Combination 6 - Home + Camera button.
  • Combination 7 - Home + Power button
Combination 2 has worked for me in the past, but it depends on your Tablet type and model.

5 number combination list


Too many to list (3,125). It would take you forever to get it unlocked. I would suggest bolt cutters and just spend the 20-30 bucks to buy a new one.

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


Well, to make a long story short, I finally unlocked my ipod after perilous hours of invalid guesses. What did I do? I have a habit of making obvious passwords-I simply goofed this time. I used the last four digits of my mother's cellphone number! Yes, yes, silly me silly me. However, I was quite relieved when I finally unlocked it. Thanks! =)
