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.

How to reboot the ipod


Attach a USB connector to the iPod and plug it into a USB connection on a computer for power, or into a stand alone USB charger plugged into a power strip for electrical power.


Pick up the iPod. Move the "Hold" switch at the top of the iPod to the "Locked" position so that an orange color appears by the switch.


Return the switch to the "Unlocked" position.

Repeat this process.


Press and hold the "Home" button and the button at the top right corner together if using a fifth generation iPod, iPod Nano, iPod Mini or iPod with a click wheel.


Press and hold the "Menu" button and the "Play/Pause" button together if using an iPod Touch. Press and hold the "Menu" button and the "OK" button together if using an older iPod.


Continue holding the buttons together until the screen flashes and then displays the iPod name and the Apple logo.

Release the buttons.


Wait as the iPod resets itself and turns itself back on.

Leave the iPod connected to the USB connector so that it can fully charge the battery.


Remove the iPod from the USB connector.

Navigate to a song using the menu selection and play some music


hope this helps

Only turn on de logo apple no more


Hi, NOTE: First make sure that your iPod's hold button isn't on. This is the little switch at the top left corner of the click wheel iPod that you can move to "lock" the iPod's buttons. If this is on, you'll see a little orange area at the top of the click wheel iPod and a lock icon on the iPod's screen. If you see either of these, move the switch back and see if this fixes the problem.

If the hold switch wasn't the problem do the following:


Move the hold switch to the on position and then move it back to off.


Hold down the Menu button on the click wheel and the center button at the same time. Hold these together for 6-10 seconds. This should restart the iPod video. You'll know the iPod is restarting when the screen changes and the Apple logo appears.


If this doesn't work at first, you should repeat the steps.

If this doesn't work, you should try plugging your iPod into a power source and let it charge. Then repeat the steps.


If this doesn't work, you may have a bigger problem, and ought to get more help.

I have a ipod shuffle and cant get it to work


Hello there Angela,

You can just reset your ipod shuffle in this case.

Hold your ipod facing its back. Now, adjust the switch on the back of iPod shuffle to the OFF so you wont be seeing the green color. Then wait for 5 seconds.Then adjust back the switch to play. Then try again if this fixed the problem.

My ipod will not switch off, and although in play mode nothing is heard from an external source. THis seemed to go wrong when I connected to outlet in my car, where it has worked beautifully many times.


Hi Richard!

You can try some troubleshooting tips directly from Apple.

  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.
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.

As to the sound issue, can you check if it is currently set to mute mode?

Operate an ipod


To get it unlocked: Find a black (or silver) oval switch on it. Move the switch to the left and orange will appear. Your ipod will be unlocked.

To scroll through things: Move your finger around the black circle.

To select something: Press the center black button.

To shut your ipod off: Hold down the pause button (button on bottom of scroll circle) for three seconds. Then switch the hold button to the right to lock it.

To pause something: Press the pause button (button on the bottom of the scroll circle).

I hope my solution was helpful. Please rate it.

Cant get shuffle to work when not conected to pc


How long have you had the unit? If it's been a year and a half or 2 years your battery needs to be replaced. They loose their ability to retain a charge in that time frame, and when you test a good battery or a bad battery they will both read 3.6v as a tester does not put a load on the battery, meaning you have 3.6v when the unit is off but when it turns on (load) it drops to zero. You could also try resseting the unit, to do so follow these instructions. To reset iPod shuffle: Disconnect iPod shuffle from the computer (if connected). Move the switch on the back of iPod shuffle to the off position. Tip: When iPod shuffle is off, the green stripe by the switch is not visible. Wait 5 seconds. Move the switch on the back to the play in order or the shuffle position. The green stripe will be visible in either position. iPod shuffle is now reset. If after resetting iPod shuffle you are going to attach it to your computer, be sure to place the switch in the off position. If you were resetting as part of some troubleshooting steps, continue with those steps now. For general troubleshooting steps see the iPod shuffle troubleshooting and service FAQ.
