Question about Apple 20gb Ipod Mp3 Player With Click Wheel System

IPod click wheel frozen

To whom it may concern:
I have a 20 GB iPod that I purchased over 3 years ago and recently the click wheel has frozen and will not move. I can turn the iPod on and off and I can use the other buttons but the click wheel is locked so that I cannot change the music or the volume. I think that this happen as a result of either getting some water into it or because I used it on an iBlaster docking station. It was temporarily fixed after getting the water into it, but after having it in the iBlaster for an hour, it now will not seem to work again. Please help!

    My 20gb i pod started to intermittently cut off for a few seconds and come back on. this lasted a couple of weeks. Then the click wheel froze and the ipod was in play mode with the screen frozen in place. The solution of holding the menu and select button at the same time worked but not on the first try.

    If it doesn't work on the first try....try holding the select button and pressing menu just a little below the word "menu" and pushing up slightly. Don't know why but this worked.

    One more thing....you may have to hold these positions down for about 10 seconds or so until it works.

    Thanks for the help.

Try to restart the Ipod.

Hold the select button and the menu at the same time until you see the screen go off.

If still does not work then try to enter disk mode and see if it works.

Disk Mode:
Reboot the ipod via Select and menu, right away hold the select and play button and hold until disk mode comes on. Does the wheel work?

If still does not work then reboot the ipod again and let it reboot normal to go back in apple firmware. If all buttons are working and none of the above works, I would assume it is not software related.

Ipod Classic 80 GB problem. screen is blank. PSP warranty


  1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
  2. Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.
Tip: If you are having difficulty resetting your iPod, set it on a flat surface. Make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel, and not near the center.
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.
if nothing happens post me a msg , i'll try further steps to help u

IPod Nano 4 GB -- what gen?


Hello,
If you have the Nano with the smaller screen measuring 1" x 1.25" and got it 3 years ago, you most likely have the 2nd generation. Apple doesn't really have cases on their site for the older nano. I have the same one and purchased my case at Target. They have a good selection of 3rd party (non-Apple branded) cases. You can also check an Apple store if you have one close by.
Hope this was helpful.
Have a great day

Just charge the battery until the indicator says the battery is full.
well since its been connected for more than enought, disconnect it, you can also try reseting the ipod incase it has frozen

To reset your iPod:
  • 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.

Ok, What we need to do is do a simple test. First hold the power button for 15-20 seconds, then hold the centre enter button for 15-20 seconds. Keep doing this and it should reset!
