I have the same problem and since mine was out of warranty, I decided to try and fix it. I ordered a new ipod nano wheel from ebay for roughly 15 dollars. Search youtube for how to open your nano, which is pretty straightforward. Not as difficult as I thought actually. You can then remove the wheel circuit pad and replace it. It peels right off of the plastic part of the wheel and the metal back part also peels off. They used some sort of sticky back tape, which sounds bad when you try to take it off, but reallty not all that bad. Mine is Gen1, so yours maybe different, just be sure to search fro the right model.

Which model ipod ??
In keeping with Apple's goal to make user-friendly,
streamlined products, the designers of the iPod built in easy-to-use reset
functions into each iPod model.
Resetting the iPod is similar to rebooting a computer as all
songs and data stored on the device stay there, and only temporary information
(such as which song is playing) gets reset.
Follow these steps to reset an iPod.
Toggle the "Hold" switch to the "On" position, then
The "Hold" switch is the small sliding switch on
the top of the iPod.
Move it to the "On" position to show an orange
rectangle. Move it back to the "Off" position to show a white
Hold the "Menu" and "Center" buttons.
Press the 2 buttons at the same time for between 8 and 10
Your screen will go blank and then boot up with a dark Apple
The icon eventually turns bright and brings you back to your
main menu once the reset is complete.
Check your iPod to make sure it plays properly. If the iPod
still does not work repeat the reset process.
Scroll Wheel and Touch Wheel iPods
Move the "Hold" switch from "On" to
Press the "Play/Pause" button and the
"Menu" button at the same time.
Press both buttons together for approximately 6 to 8
This initiates the self-running reset process.
Make sure the reset was successful.
If problems persist you may need to perform the reset
process once again. iPod Nano
Move the on-off switch to the "Off" position that
shows the green strip.
Leave the iPod Nano in this position for 5 seconds.
Move the switch back to the "On" position.
Use your iPod Nano to
make sure the reset worked properly and all your music is intact.
You may be doing the reset wrong. Try doing this: Toggle the hold switch and put it back in the off position. Then press and hold the center button and the menu button simultaneously for ten seconds and the apple symbol should come up on the screen. Then it should work like normal. Hope this helps you!
You have to reset your iPod. (Note: This is for the 3rd generation iPod Nano)
To reset iPod nano:
1 Toggle the Hold switch on and off (slide it to HOLD and then back again).
2 Press and hold the Menu and Center buttons for at least 6 seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
If iPod nano won’t turn on or respond
- Make sure the Hold switch isn’t set to HOLD.
- The iPod nano battery might need to be recharged. Connect iPod nano to your computer or to an Apple USB Power Adapter and let the battery recharge. Look for the lightning bolt icon on the iPod nano screen to verify that iPod nano is receiving a charge.
