Question about Apple IPod nano Second Generation MP3 Player

1 Answer

Center Button I have an 8 GB iPod Nano that I LOVE, over the last couple months the center button has become harder and harder to press...by this I mean it goes down just fine but it won't cycle through the menus unless I press it really hard. This causes me great pain and anguish because it has become so bad I can hardly use it. HELP! Thanks

The small button(the actual button) under the plastic menu button ist most likely jammed or broken. It would need to be replaced.

You could open the ipod and check to see whats the shape of the button.

If you have any questions let me know! Good luck.

Learn how to reset or restart iPod following a freeze.
Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.) Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step. 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 you are still unable to reset your iPod, use only one finger from one hand to press the Center (Select) button, and one finger from the other hand to press the Menu button.
When you reset iPod all your music and files are saved, but some customized settings may be lost. Date and time are preserved (unless the iPod reset itself because it had no power and then was reconnected to power). Other customized settings, such as Bookmarks, On-The-Go Playlists, Shuffle, Backlight timer, and so forth are preserved from the last time the hard drive turned on.

If this does not resolve your issue please do let me know. I have a fountain of information on iPods

I went to plug up my ipod nano third generation the 8 GB and it is frozen on the last song i listen to and then I unpluged it and went to push play and it wouldn't un-freeze.


Try doing this: Toggle the hold switch and put it back in the off position. Then press and hold the center button and the menu button simultaneously for ten seconds and the apple symbol should come up on the screen. Then it should work like normal. Hope this helps!

Wrong language on ipod


This is simple but good to know.

Select your language.
If you have an iPod nano or Fifth Generation iPod (iPod with video):
  1. Scroll down to the last menu option but don't select it.
  2. Scroll up one menu item. This should be Settings.
  3. Press the Center (Select) button. This takes you to the Settings menu.
  4. Scroll down to the last menu option but don't select it; in English, this is the "Reset All Settings" option.
  5. Scroll up to the third menu item from the bottom one. This should be Language.
  6. Press the Center button to select Language.
  7. Select your preferred language from the list.
