Perhaps your LCD Screen has malfunctioned.
1> Make sure hold switch is not activated.
2> press any button to turn on the device
3> put your ear up to the back of it. if you can hear the little hard drive spinning (very faint on smaller iPods, listen carefully.). if you hear it the device is on and working, and your LCD is not working. you will need to take it to Apple to have it repaired.

SOURCE: iPod nano black mp3 won't turn on

Get a new cable if everything else works that is your problem
Usually, unplugging, replugging it and then rebooting solves the problem.

SOURCE: my nano won't restore.

Try putting the ipod in disk mode by pressing the center and play buttons after resetting it (by holding down the center and menu buttons). You will know it is in disk mode when it shows a check mark on the ipod screen. Then plug it into your vcomputer and format it using windows.

After you format the ipod, try disconnecting and reconnecting to the computer and restore and see if that fixes your problem.

SOURCE: iPod nano black mp3 won't turn on

The first thing that every iPod owner needs to know is how to restart your little MP3 player. Apple has a nice little tech note about restarting your iPod, and here's the gist of it:

  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.

SOURCE: Blank screen and beeps - won't charge

The beeps sadly mean you have a hardware issue with the unit. You can attempt to reset it while it is connected to a power source but my best solution would be to call apple since you are still under your one year warranty. Just if they ask about ANY kimd of accidental damage say no. It voids your warranty. Here is the number 1-800-APL-CARE (1-800-275-2273)

  2. In the iPod Summary Screen, click on the restore button and agree to the prompt asking if you really want to restore the iPhone's software.
If you are still unsuccessful in turning on the iPod, but the iPod doesn't show up in iTunes, try putting the iPod into recovery mode
  1. You can put the iPod into recovery mode if it has a charged battery.
  2. Start by holding down the home button before connecting it to iTunes, then continue to hold the button until iTunes recognizes that the iPod's in recovery mode.
  3. Recovery mode allows you to perform a restore when you're when an iPod fails to turn on or display anything on the screen.

My ipod touch wont work


If iPod touch won't turn on, or if the display freezes or doesn't respond
  • iPod touch may need charging. See "Charging the Battery" in the iPod touch Features Guide.
  • Press and hold the Home button for at least six seconds, until the application you were using quits.
  • If that doesn't work, turn off iPod touch and turn it on again. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button on top of iPod touch for a few seconds until a red slider appears, and then drag the slider. Then press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.
  • If that doesn't work, reset iPod touch. Press and hold both the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
If iPod touch continues to freeze or not respond after you reset it
  • Reset iPod touch settings. From the Home screen choose Settings > General > Reset > Reset All Settings. All your preferences are reset, but your data and media are left untouched.
  • If that doesn't work, erase all content on iPod touch. From the Home screen choose Settings > General > Reset > "Erase All Content and Settings." All your preferences are reset, and all your data and media are removed from iPod touch.

To reset the iPhone or iPod Touch, press and hold down the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button simultaneously at the same time for at least ten seconds, then the LCD display will clear and the Apple logo appears on the black background. When Apple logo appears, reset is done.
