  2. Reset the iPod by holding down the Menu and Center buttons for 10 seconds.

    • If the Apple logo does not appear or the iPodis not seen in iTunes, connect the iPod to a power source by eitherplugging it into an Apple iPod USB Power Adapter or directly into acomputer'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 is not set to sleep, standby, or hibernate.

Try the button combination : menu button and center button together for 5 sec. That will reset your iPod. If that doesn't work, Take it to the Apple store first. Only if you're not under warranty, you can try a firmware restore using iTunes. If that doesn't help it's a hardware issue with your logic board. The logic board can be replaced by a tech savy user and the part is available on common auction websites. There are ipod nano 4th gen Repair guides that show you how to do the replacement step by step.

My ipod is frozen. "Connected eject before disconnected."


Hello, if it's still frozen try holding the power button and the center of the scroll wheel, or the power button and the top of the scroll wheel until it restarts, then try re-connecting it again.
