Question about Apple iPod nano 3rd Generation
I have had 4 of these ipods, all because they keep breaking. i keep trading broken ones in again. i don't know why. all the broken ipods exhibit the same "symptoms." they stop playing songs and videos, but you can still maneuver around the screens, using the buttons and wheel. none of the games are playable, and, if the ipod is reset (a difficult task with this kind), it dies. black screen, no responses, no revival. is it me, or a faulty product? what do i do?
I also had the same problem with my ipod nano..
Do this and i assure you, it will work..
1. Hold the MENU button and then the middle button down(in that order) together for about 10 seconds..
2. This should re-boot your ipod..
3. Wait for your ipod to start..
4. Problem fixed. It plays..

I was having the same exact problems, wouldn't play any songs all of the suddend and none of the games worked. I tried resetting it a few times but nothing for a minute or too after...then I got the apple screen, it reset and all of the sudden it started working again, game and all!

Try reconnecting it to the pc so it can synchronize. I did this w/o having to reset it and the Apple sign appeared and everything worked again. Too bad I couldn't use it when I really needed it!

What Dyme-Piece said worked, thanx sooo much! But there is one downside to it, I did it to my iPod and I have a feeling that you shouldn't do this everything unless you're in a desperate stituation, becuz it's like registry cleaning your computer, it works but the less you could use it the less you should. Still, a VERY good solution
