Depends on the model iPod nano but no off button only sleep! But either goes to sleep after a few minutes of inactivity! Press and hold play/pause for a few seconds to force sleep! If not being used slide hold on, to stop it coming on!

Ipod Touch wont turn on


Your iPod has been working fine and all of a sudden it won't turn on. Not sure why? Before you rush to your nearest Apple store, try these easy-to-use, at-home solutions for fixing your iPod.

Check the Hold switch to see if it is off. Located on the top or the bottom of the iPod, when it is in the "on" position you will see an orange patch of color. Slide the switch until the orange coloring disappears. Try to turn on the iPod. Make sure the battery is fully charged by connecting your iPod to your computer's built-in FireWire or USB port or into an electrical outlet using your Apple iPod power adapter. Note: iPods without a click wheel cannot be charged using a USB port. After your battery is fully charged, try to turn on the iPod. Reset your iPod. iPod Shuffle: Disconnect iPod Shuffle from the computer if connected. Move the power switch to the off position. Wait five seconds. Move the switch to the play in order or the shuffle position. iPod Touch: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons together for at least 10 seconds until the Apple logo appears. iPod Nano (all generations), iPod Classic, iPod Mini: Turn the Hold switch on and off. Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons at the same time until the Apple logo appears, making sure to not touch any part of the click wheel. This should take about six to eight seconds and may need to be repeated. If your iPod still won't turn on, check the following: Make sure the iPod is the only device in your FireWire or USB chain. Disconnect everything but the mouse, keyboard and iPod, and try again. Double check that you are using the FireWire or USB cable that came with your iPod, and that it is in good condition. Try the built-in port of a different computer.

Ipod wont turn on


There are several reasons why your iPod Nano may not turn on or awake out of its "Sleep Mode." This can be extremely irritating if you wish to use your iPod Nano, but the device is constantly malfunctioning. You may not need to take your iPod Nano in to be repaired if the player doesn't turn on as normal. There are a variety of different fixes that you can attempt as a way to get the Nano to turn on.
Flip the iPod Nano's "Hold" switch to "OFF." The iPod Nano cannot be turn on if the switch is set to "ON." Reset the iPod Nano. Move the "Hold" switch to "ON" and then "OFF." Then, press down the "Select" and "Menu" buttons on the Nano. Hold those buttons for about eight seconds. The Apple logo will then become visible on the iPod Nano. Once this occurs, try turning the iPod Nano on once again. Connect the iPod Nano to an iPod charger or a computer that is turned on via the iPod Nano's USB cord. Charge the Nano for at least 30 minutes. Then, try to turn the Nano on. Update the iPod Nano's software. Connect the Nano to your computer via the player's USB cable. Open iTunes, and click the iPod Nano's name on the left part of iTunes. Click the "Summary" option at the top of iTunes. Then, click on the "Check for Updates" button that's positioned in the middle of iTunes. Follow the instructions that appear inside iTunes in order to install the updates on the Nano. Hope this helps.

My ipod will not turn on


Find out what to do if your iPod won't turn on.

Several things could prevent iPod from turning on. Check each cause in this order to find out what's wrong.
Products Affected

iPod
Resolution
Make sure the Hold switch is off

1. Check to see if the Hold switch is on. It's located on the top or the bottom of iPod. When it's in the on position, you'll see an orange patch.
2. To turn the hold switch off, slide it until you no longer see the orange patch.
3. Press any button to turn on iPod.

iPod hold switch on iPod hold switch on
Make sure the battery is charged

iPod won't turn on if the battery is empty. Instead, a low battery screen appears for about 3 seconds when you try to turn it on.

iPod battery empty icon

To charge your iPod, connect your iPod to your computer's built-in 6-pin FireWire or high-powered USB port or connect it to the Apple iPod Power Adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet. Note: iPod models without a Click Wheel cannot be charged via USB. iPod shuffle requires a high-power USB port to charge. iPod nano and iPod (5th generation) can charge via USB or FireWire, but they require USB to sync with iTunes. If you're not sure what iPod model you have, click here.

If you are connecting via USB and the battery is completely discharged, there may be up to a 30-minute delay before iPod powers up. Click here for more information.
Reset iPod

If iPod still does not turn on or appears to be "frozen" you may need to reset it. When you reset iPod all your songs and files are saved. Some customized settings may be lost.
Let the iPod battery drain

In rare cases, iPod might get into a state in which it needs to be drained completely before it can be reset. If iPod didn't turn on after you reset it, follow these steps:

1. Disconnect iPod from all power sources and leave it disconnected for about 24 hours.
2. Reconnect iPod to the Apple iPod Power Adapter or computer and reset it.

Update iPod's software

If iPod turns on after you reset it, use the latest version of iTunes to update iPod.


Additional Information

If you have tried the solutions above and iPod still won't turn on, check the following:

* Make sure iPod is the only device in your FireWire or USB chain. Disconnect everything but the mouse, keyboard, and your iPod, then see if it will turn on.
* Make sure you are using the FireWire or USB cable that came with your iPod, and that the cable is in good condition.
* Try connecting iPod to the built-in port of a different computer to see if that works. Note: If using a portable computer, make sure it is plugged in to a power source and that the lid or display is open. If the lid is closed the computer may go into either standby, sleep, or hibernation mode and iPod will not charge properly.

If you still can't turn iPod on after performing these steps, it may need to be repaired. You can arrange for repair at the iPod Service Website.

iPod may not power on, may be stuck on the battery logo, or may have stopped responding while playing music (in which case the Click Wheel doesn't respond).
Products Affected

iPod classic (120GB), iPod nano, iPod classic, iPod classic 160GB (Late 2009), iPod (5th generation), iPod (5th generation Late 2006)
Resolution

If you experience any of the above issues, try the following steps:

1. Toggle the Hold switch. To do this, slide the switch to Hold (an orange bar appears) and then slide it back (orange bar is hidden).
2. Reset the iPod by holding down the Menu and Center buttons for 10 seconds.
* If the Apple logo appears on the display, connect the iPod to a computer and verify that it appears in iTunes and can play music. If the iPod appears in iTunes and can play music, no further troubleshooting is needed.
* If the Apple logo does not appear or the iPod is not seen in iTunes, connect the iPod to a power source by either plugging it into an Apple iPod USB Power Adapter or directly into a computer's USB port.
3. Let the iPod charge for at least 20 minutes. Note: If the iPod is connected to a computer, make sure the computer does not sleep, standby, or hibernate during the 20-minute charging period.
4. After the iPod has charged for at least 20 minutes and while it is still connected to the power source, toggle the Hold switch again as in step 1.
5. Try resetting the iPod by holding down the Menu and Center buttons for 10 seconds.
* If the Apple logo appears on the display, connect the iPod to a computer and verify that it appears in iTunes and can play music. If the iPod appears in iTunes and can play music, no further troubleshooting is needed.
* If the Apple logo does not appear or the iPod is not seen in iTunes, try putting the iPod into disk mode and restoring.
6. Try putting the iPod into disk mode.
* While in disk mode, connect the iPod to iTunes and try to restore.
* If the iPod is still not recognized by iTunes, the iPod should be serviced.

See http://www.apple.com/support/ipod/ and click the Service tab for more information about your service options.

My ipod will not switch off, and although in play mode nothing is heard from an external source. THis seemed to go wrong when I connected to outlet in my car, where it has worked beautifully many times.


Hi Richard!

You can try some troubleshooting tips directly from Apple.

  1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
  2. Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 10 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.
If the above steps did not work, try connecting iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep.

As to the sound issue, can you check if it is currently set to mute mode?

Turning on


If your iPod does not turn on or it appears to be frozen... you may need to reset it...
  • Toggle the 'Hold' switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
  • Press and hold the 'Menu' and 'Center (Select)' buttons for about 6-10 seconds until the Apple logo appears. This step may need to be repeated.
Note: When you reset your iPod all your songs and files are saved. Some of your customized settings may be lost though.
More Tips If Your iPod Does Not Turn On Make sure that your iPod isn't on 'Hold'... Check the 'Hold' switch and make sure that it isn't set to the 'Hold' position... if you see any colour, your 'Hold' switch is engaged.
You might also try toggling the switch to the 'Hold' position, switch it back off, and then try turning it on.
hold-switch.jpg
Make sure that your battery is charged... Your iPod won't turn on if the battery is depleted. Instead, a low battery screen may appear for about 3 seconds when you try to turn it on.
To charge it, connect it to a high-powered USB 2.0 or FireWire port on your computer, or to an Apple iPod Power Adapter that's connected to an electrical outlet, using the cable that came with it.
full-ipod-battery.gif
If your iPod still won't turn on, reset it...Press Menu and Select buttons for six seconds until the Apple logo appears.
When you reset your iPod, all of your songs and files are preserved, however, you may need to reset some customized settings.
Let your iPod battery drain... In rare cases, your iPod might get into a state in which the battery needs to be drained completely before you can reset it.
