Question about Apple iPod nano

1 Answer

My 8GB iPod Nano (RED edition) keeps freezing up

When it first started doing it, I was able to restart it by holding down [Menu] and the center button. Now, however, I have to plug it into my computer to be able to restart it and it is happening progressively more often. I've tried checking for software updates (iTunes always says that the software is up to date) and I've tried restoring my iPod multiple times. What else can I try?

How old is the device? If less than a year, you may send it into apple to have it serviced.

SOURCE: my nano won't restore.

Take it into your nearest Apple Store or Best Buy. It's covered under warranty so it won't cost you. The hard drive needs to be tested on it.

SOURCE: my nano won't restore.

When you hook your iPod up, go to my computer and see if it shows as a drive. If so, Right Click on the drive and click "Format" Once this is done, Put the ipod in disk mode and connect it to itunes.
Restore as before and see if you get results.

I suspect you may have been using a dock when it crashed, if so you may never get it back. Docks are very harsh on the ipod motherboards. especially the Nano gen 3 and the Ipod Video 5th gen.

If this helps, please leave a vote on fixya

Try this to reset the iPod nano:
Hold down the Menu button on the clickwheel and the center button at the same time. Hold these
together for 6-10 seconds. This should restart the iPod nano.

For more information, check out this troubleshooting page:

If that doesn't work, you might need to restore the firmware on your iPod. There are instructions here:

Locked ipod nano


Did you first slide the hold switch to HOLD and then back before holding the menu and center buttons down together? That worked for my iPod nano 4th generation after it "locked up" and became non-responsive.

Ipod nano(2nd gene)


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.
