Re: frozen screen

First make sure your hold switch isn't on. It's on the top and slides back and forth. It needs to be switched to the left. If 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.

Try restoring it, plug your iPod into your computer and open up iTunes, select your iPod in the list to the left, then click the "Restore" button located right under the big picture of your iPod model. Restoring will take several minutes.

Hope this helps!

You need to reset your ipod. Flip the hold switch on then off, then press select button and menu button at same time. Hold for 10 seconds or so. Ipod should shut off and reboot to apple screen. If this doesn't work first time try again. This should solve any stuck screen problems. Mine was stuck on pioneer screen and this operation fixed it.

My Ipod is frozen

OK what you need to do is reset it. To do this you will need to hold down the menu and select buttons simultaneously for approx 6 seconds until the apple logo appears on the screen. This should reset and un freeze your ipod.

Try this and let me know how you get on.

what you can do, is take the hold button, and push it back and forth maybe 2 or 3 times, than you hold down the "menu" utton and the center button at the same time for about 10 seconds and you will see it restarting with a black screen and the apple icon in the center than you can let go of the buttons and about 10 seconds it willl become brighter and you will see the icon, then you can get to all of your music or videos and such

Try a "hard reset". Press and hold the power button for 15 seconds to shut off. With the device off, press and hold the vol + and the center select button. Power it back on, see if that works. You can add to the question if you have more questions. Best of Luck.
