My ipod nano is randomly messing up. It is

I would reset the nano by doing the following:

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 simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.

If this does not work go to the following webpage which may help you more

I have an apple ipod 8 gb. It flashes the apple

try holding the menu button and the centre button at the same time for a few seconds until the apple logo shows (this shouldnt be flashing), this should unfreeze the ipod, if not, try plugging it into your computer (install itunes first) see if your computer can find it, if it does open the ipod screen in itunes and look for an ipod update, perform the update (if there is one available) this will reset it to factory default with the newer software, if theres no update try to restore ipod.
If these tricks dont work, im afraid its a trip to the apple store, good luck

Ipod nano dropped in a bowl of water

Contact Apple support - then click on support

By what i understand about IPOD when i sold it at Radioshack, the unit sounds like it died after that swimming event. Ipods unfortunatly are like cell phones and dont like water at all. If it is slowly getting worse, like the screen working then not, that means the hardware is corroding and dying.

Apple ipod nano wont play the full song

First make sure your hold switch isn't on. It's on the top or bottom and slides back and forth. It needs to be switched to the left. Once it is to the left, here's how you reset:

You can reset your ipod by holding down the menu and select (round button in the center) buttons down for at least 10 seconds. You'll see an apple logo flash, that's when you stop pressing the buttons. It will shut off, then back on.

The screen is blue

The following is the latest update for the nano - CLICK HERE

If your iPod is frozen or won't turn on, connect your iPod to your computer, then press and hold the "Menu" and "Select" buttons simultaneously for 10 seconds to reset the iPod. Resetting an iPod will not affect your files or preferences.

Hope this helps!
