Re: i pod nano cant switch off

Sounds weird, try this. Hold down the menu and the select, (top and middle) buttons down at the same time. What this does is resets you iPod. It should reset and turn back on. After that try again to turn it off. If that doesn't work, you may have to back up your information in it and completly reboot your iPod. You can do that on itunes. And if that isn't it what it could be is that you are about due for a new battery. Worn batteries cause mp3 players to act up in a number of ways and not turing off is one of them that I have seen.

My ipod wont stay charged

This may not be the answer you are looking for but your I pod might not be fully charged, meaning that you are not plugging it in the computer/docking system long enough.( it takes much longer than 15 minutes to charge the battery. So you might want to plug it in/dock it over night) Or you may be playing a game that uses a lot of MB/GB so it kills the battery. And make sure that you press the play/pause button down for at least five seconds before switching the little switch at the top of your I pod. If you don't press the play/pause button for five seconds and just switch the switch at the top a little lock will appear on the left corner meaning you need to hold the play/pause button down for five seconds then the i pod screen goes black at that time flick the switch at the top off. -hope it helps owner of i pod nano and I pod touch.

try reseting it with holding down the menu and center button. Your warrenty will have been voided due to the liquid damage though so if you cant get it working with the reset your gunna need a new one.

Try to do a reset. That might help.
