New IPOD not responding?

I bought an IPOD for my boyfriend for Christmas and it's not responding to ANYTHING! It's making a clicking noise and just has the Apple logo on the screen. It's an 80GB. Not sure what to do with it? I have an IPOD Nano that I've had for about a year and have never seen it act like this before...... Please help! Heidi

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.

Outdoor 3-Outlet Photocell Timer

Photocell is 'seeing' lights and thinks it's dawn so it turns off.
When lights are off, timer thinks it's night and clicks back on.

1) Turn photoeye away from lights.
2) Buy new timer since photoeye is first thing to malfunction on cheap Christmas timers.
3) Buy new timer at Lowes, and return defect in new package

To reset an iPod with a Click Wheel, including: ipodnano3.jpg ipodclassic.jpg icon_ipod_5g.gif ipodnano2.jpg ipodnano.jpg ipodphoto.gif ipodg4.gif ipodmini.gif
  • iPod nano (3rd generation)
  • iPod classic
  • iPod (5th generation)
  • iPod nano (2nd generation)
  • iPod nano
  • iPod with color display (iPod photo)
  • iPod (Click Wheel)
  • iPod mini
  • iPod mini (2nd generation)
  1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
  2. 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 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.
