Question about Apple iPod nano MP3 Player

1 Answer

Can't unlock ipod :(

I was playing around with the settings to my Ipod nano chromatic. i accidently pressed 'LOCK' and now theres a padlock on the screen and i can't get it off. I need a 4 digit code and i don't have one! So how can i unlock it. I really don't wanna lose any of my songs. I have tried 4 '0's' and that still doesn't work. Is there any way i can reset it without losing songs??? Please please, tell me how to get it off, its frustrating. Thanks.

You should always have your ipod library file backed up to prevent this.
If you cannot remember the passcode, you will need to restore your device using the computer with
which you last synced it. This allows you to reset your passcode and resync the data from the
device (or restore from a backup). If you restore on a different computer that was never synced
with the device, you will be able to unlock the device for use and remove the passcode, but your
data will not be present Follow the steps that i have outlined below. If this does not completely help your situation
please let me know and i will be glad to assist you. According to Apple, if you have forgotten the code, you can unlock the IPod by doing the
following: 1 If you can't unlock IPod using either [the code or connecting it to the computer you use to
manage its songs. . . Plug the iPod USB cable into the bottom of the iPod Nano. 2 Plug the other end of the iPod USB cable into a free USB port on a Mac or PC computer. 3 Open the iTunes application by clicking on the Dock icon on a Mac or using the Start menu on a
PC. 4 Click on the name of your iPod Nano under the "Devices" list in the iTunes window. 5 Click on the "Sync" button to establish a connection between your iPod and the computer. 6 Click on the eject symbol next to your iPod's name after the syncing process has finished. 7 Unplug your iPod Nano. The device will be unlocked and you will be able to access all normal
features again. if that does not work you can restore your iPod to factory settings using iPod Updater. Please
note that this will erase all data on your iPod. Afterwards, you can add your music and data back to your iPod. If you want to change the primary computer that your IPod is associated with, do this: 1. Restore your iPod. WARNING: The restore process cannot be undone. All of your songs and files will be deleted. Always make a backup of your important data. 2. Connect your iPod to the computer that you want to be the primary computer. 3. Open iTunes and synchronize. Apple also notes that company "representatives cannot unlock an iPod if you forget your
combination. If you can't unlock your iPod and you don't have access to the primary computer,
your only option is to restore the IPod, which will erase all music and data." If you need further assistance please feel free to follow up with a comment and i will be here to
assist you. If this assisted you please feel free to rate the comment. thanks and have a great
day.

My 8gb apple ipod nano chromatic isn't working! you can faintly see the little "connected" sign with the plug, but it's really dark. i can hear when i put my earphones in, but that's it. my computer...


Slide the hold switch to hold then off, hold then off. Then press the play / pause menu button at the same time and hold until the Apple lego appears. This usually takes 5 to 10 seconds. You may have to repeat this a few times. It worked for my ipod. If this does not work try going to the Apple website. There will be a lot of reading to help with your problem but it will be worth it.

I washed my ipod chromatic accidently and theres water in the screen the ipod still plays and screen works is there a wy to get the water out


Get it in a baggie full of rice IMMEDIATELY and leave it there until the rice wicks away the moisture - it may take a few days and a change of the rice. If you have been saving those dessicant packs that come w/electronics and such - they work even better.

My ipod chromatic is completly frozen.


You are 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!

My ipod nano chromatic ha water damage from the washer


Sometimes if you leave it sit for several days or so it will dry out completely and start to work again. I don't recommend charging it or plugging it in for several days or so as if there is still water in it, it may fry some of the chips. It may be beyond repair though.
