Re: iopd wheel not responding

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.

Won't turn on

Is your iPod fully charged? Sometimes the batteries become so depleted of charge that an accessory charger won't turn it on.

-Try plugging it in to your computer or a wall charger for a while, time will vary but it may turn on.

-If it is not turning on your computer will never recognize it, thus you won't be able to do a restore with iTunes.

-Try a hard restart as well this could help you.

Ipod not responding

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!

My i-pod nano chromatic 8 GB is stuck!:S

Press and hold the Menu and Centre buttons at the same time until the apple logo appears. (This usually takes between 5 and 10 seconds.)

Change language to english

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.
