Question about Apple iPod nano

1 Answer

Ipod always on hold

My 2 GB nano shows the lock icon no matter how many times I toggle the hold switch on and off and press the Menu/Select buttons. I've recharged and restored it any number of times with no luck. Computer recognizes it when I plug it in but once I unplug it, none of the buttons work. When it's plugged in and fully updated, it shows the languages menu. I'll be eternally grateful to anyone who can offer any assistance!

How do i fix my 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. b> 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. b> 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.

I plugged in my i pod and came back a hour later and the screen was black and was frozen and none of the buttons would work

If iPod nano won’t turn on or respond
â Make sure the Hold switch isn’t set to HOLD.

computer or to an Apple USB Power Adapter and let the battery recharge. Look for
the lightning bolt icon on the iPod nano screen to verify that iPod nano is receiving
a charge.
To charge the battery, connect iPod nano to a USB 2.0 port on your computer.

Ipod always on hold


plug it into your comp and iTunes will unlock it for you
This support document also provides additional information on locking and unlocking the iPod. According to Apple, if you have forgotten the code, you can unlock the iPod by doing the following:
Connect your iPod to the primary computer you use it with (the first one iPod synced with), and open iTunes. When you disconnect iPod from the computer, it will no longer be locked.
If you can't unlock iPod using either [the code or connecting it to the computer you use to manage its songs]. . . you can restore your iPod to factory settings using iPod Updater. Please note that this will erase all data on your iPod. Afterwards, you can add your music and data back to your iPod.
If you want to change the primary computer that your iPod is associated with, do this:
1. Restore your iPod. Warning: The restore process cannot be undone. All of your songs and files will be deleted. Always make a backup of your important data.
2. Connect your iPod to the computer that you want to be the primary computer.
3. Open iTunes and synchronize

Tip: If you are having difficulty resetting your iPod, set it on a flat surface. Make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel, and not near the center.
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.
