30gb ipod freeze up cant shutdown to reboot

Slide the Hold button on the top of the iPod so no red mark is visible. Press the main menu button until you see a long list of options (Artists Albums Songs Extras......) use the scroll wheel to find the sleep press and hold the center button in or Locate the Play/Pause button on the iPod. The Play/Pause button is at the bottom of the wheel around the select button. Press and hold the Play/Pause button until the unit powers off, about three to five seconds. Press any button on the iPod to turn the power on.

My 30 gb ipod video is not working. it displays picture of an ipod with a sad face . Ive read about this & apparently its a hardware issue. can you please help me fix it without going to the apple...

what the previous guy was talking about is the force into disk-mode trick. which works, provided you don't have a broken hard drive(which is my problem) and provided you do all the steps. which is the fatal flaw in the last post.
After holding the center and menu buttons, you immediately switch to the play/pause and center button when you see the apple logo. You'll know you got it right if your screen tells you not to disconnect the cable. Plug it in and restore your ipod using i-tunes. This can sometimes return your ipod to working order.

The screen of my mp3 is always showing a hour glass it doesnt procced to menu it just stuck to the hour glass. help what should do?

If you have an iPod, Press the Menu and Center buttons until the ipod should be ok.
If it is not, repeat the above and when you see the apple come up, switch your fingers the the center and play/pause buttons. this will put it in disk mode.
hook it up to itunes and restore it.

Apple iPod Model A1136, 30 GB.

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.
