Re: ipod frozen

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.

1: Plug your iPod into your computer.

2: Hold the power button and the menu button (underneath screen) down simultaneously until the screen goes black, then shows the Apple logo again. Then release the buttons.

3: Wait for five to fifteen minutes until your computer plays a "chime" sound. The iPod should then show the "locked" screen with the battery logo, and you should be good to go. You will probably want to resync your media to your iPod at this point, and make sure it's charged.

Frozen Ipod

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

Hourglass frozen on screen!!

Try and plug it in your computer once again and see if the hour glass budges. Then safely remove it by clicking the "Safely Remove Device" Icon on your PC tray (where the clock is on a PC)...

If not, theres probably a software reset hole at the back or sides of your mp4 player, try pushing it with a toothpick or similar pointed thing.

If all else fails, have it replaced...
