IPod nano 4gb Not working, fully charged but won't power up

We have a 4gb iPod nano, my son held down the play/pause button to shut it off and now it won't power up...it has been fully charged and he says he did a screen lock but we can't even get it to come on to unlock it if that's part of the problem. Please help!

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.

Tip

To get your 4GB iPod Nano to be recognized by your computer


I found the solution to this problem:

To get your iPod Nano 3rd Generation (4GB video) to be recognized by your computer, you will need to manually get it into "Disk Mode" here's how:
  1. Verify that it has a full charge, if not, you need to either charge the iPod before continuing or connect it to a high-powered USB port, or simply connect it to the Power Adapter that plugs into an electrical outlet. (just not connected to your computer)
  2. Toggle the Hold switch on and off once. (Set it to Hold, and then turn it off again. Just slide back and forth.)
  3. Press and hold the Menu and Select (center) buttons at the same time for at least 6 seconds until the Apple logo appears.
  4. When the Apple logo appears, release the Menu and Select (center) buttons and immediately press and hold the Select (center) and the Play/Pause buttons until the ‘Disk Mode’ screen appears.
  5. Disconnect your iPod from the power adapter and connect it to your computer;
  6. Now the screen on the iPod will change and say "Do not disconnect" and should be recognized by your computer.
I hope this helps you; I had a hard time finding a solution and thought I'd share the wealth once my stress was relieved.

Listening to ipod nano 4GB and it just died no display on screen


hold down the menu and play / pause button for a good 5 or more seconds until it prompts you ( assuming it has power ) ie connected to a usb port or the battery is fully charged.

If that does not help then the screen is possibly damaged or something inside is stopping from the screen working so you will need to go to an apple store or where ever you purchased it from to get it replaced / fixed.

I have n ipod nano 2nd generation which has frozen, and although I have toggled the hold button and then held the center button and the play/pause button down it will not reset. Can you tell me what to do...


I toggled the hold key on and off and then held the MENU and CENTRE buttons down until the apple sign came up and it now works fine. I had to do the procedure a few times but it eventually worked.

IPod will not charge or download music from iTunes......help


Someone posted a similar problem on another thread and included a solution that worked for him/her. It worked for me as well, when I had the problem. For me, it was not an iTunes or iPod problem but a Windows Vista problem. I don't know what OS your son is running. I've copied the step-by-step instructions from the other thread into this thread for you. Give it a shot - good luck!
  1. Before manually placing the iPod into Disk Mode - verify that it has a charge, if not you need to either charge iPod before continuing or connect it to power. Either connect it to a high-powered USB port, or connect the iPod to the Power Adapter and pluf that into an electrical outlet..
  2. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Set it to Hold, then turn it off again. Just slide back and forth. )
  3. Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for at least 6 seconds until the Apple logo appears.
  4. When the Apple logo appears, release the Menu and Select buttons and immediately press and hold the Select and the Play/Pause buttons until the Disk Mode screen appears.
  5. Disconnect iPod from the power adapter and connect it to your computer; the screen on the iPod will change and say "Do not disconnect"
