I just got my first ipod today. I purchased it through a police auctions website and they rarely have accessories and don't provide manuals. So my best thing to tell you is to search, search, search! I found this manual by searching http://manuals.info.apple.com/en/ipod_nano_features_guide.pdf That's also how I came across this site. I was searching trying to find out what generation ipod I have. If you don't like one search engine, try others. You can also try the apple website. I hope this helps!

Instruction manual


Which model ipod ??
In keeping with Apple's goal to make user-friendly, streamlined products, the designers of the iPod built in easy-to-use reset functions into each iPod model.
Resetting the iPod is similar to rebooting a computer as all songs and data stored on the device stay there, and only temporary information (such as which song is playing) gets reset.
Follow these steps to reset an iPod.
Toggle the "Hold" switch to the "On" position, then "Off."
The "Hold" switch is the small sliding switch on the top of the iPod.
Move it to the "On" position to show an orange rectangle. Move it back to the "Off" position to show a white rectangle.
Hold the "Menu" and "Center" buttons.
Press the 2 buttons at the same time for between 8 and 10 seconds.
Your screen will go blank and then boot up with a dark Apple icon.
The icon eventually turns bright and brings you back to your main menu once the reset is complete.


Check your iPod to make sure it plays properly. If the iPod still does not work repeat the reset process.

Scroll Wheel and Touch Wheel iPods

Move the "Hold" switch from "On" to "Off."


Press the "Play/Pause" button and the "Menu" button at the same time.
Press both buttons together for approximately 6 to 8 seconds.
This initiates the self-running reset process.

Make sure the reset was successful.
If problems persist you may need to perform the reset process once again.
iPod Nano

Move the on-off switch to the "Off" position that shows the green strip.
Leave the iPod Nano in this position for 5 seconds.


Move the switch back to the "On" position.

Use your iPod Nano to make sure the reset worked properly and all your music is intact.

It will come on to the main page but the click wheel won`t move


Look on top of the ipod to see if the switch color is orange, which means the ipod is locked.  Switch the thing the other way to unlock.  Also, make sure you got the latest software updates for the ipod to fix click wheel sensitivity issues.  You can also do a reset- push the center button and menu button at the same time until the apple logo appears.  Then you can release your death grip on the thing.  Take the thing back to the store if your within your warranty and have them deal with it if you still got problems.  Cheers.

Having problems when connecting ipod to my computer


Have you already attempted to force the iPod into disc mode before connecting the iPod to your computer? If not I would recommend doing now. If you can get the iPod to connect to your computer at this point you will want to restore it using the latest version of iTunes.

Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Set it to Hold, then turn it off again.) Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for at least 6 seconds until the Apple logo appears. When the Apple logo appears, release the Menu and Select buttons and immediately press and hold the Select and the Play/Pause buttons until the Disk Mode screen appears.
Connect the iPod to your computer; the screen on the iPod will change and say "Do not disconnect" If you are having difficulty putting the iPod model into disk mode, set it on a flat surface. Make sure that the finger pressing the Select button is not touching the Click Wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Play/Pause button toward the outside of the Click Wheel and not near the center.
If you are still unable to put your iPod with a Click Wheel into Disk Mode, use one finger from one hand to press the Select button, and one finger from the other hand to press the Play/Pause button.

My 4 GB ipod nano has a blank screen but still lights up, blank with NO logo and I can play songs there is just no way to see what you are doing. I unplugged the ipod and the screen has been lit and blank...


First of all try rebooting your Ipod by holding down the center button while holding down on the menu button at the same time. When the Apple logo appears, you Ipod is rebooting.

If that doesn't work, restore your Ipod back to factory setting in Itunes. It could be that the brightness and contrast settings of your screen got out of position allowing the screen to appear blank.

Screen not working on ipod Need Help


this sounds like you have left the ipod in a hot car or in the sun too long, if so there is not a true fix for this problem. You can always take it in for a fix at an apple store.
