    My nano just turned itself off and refused to cooperate. I tried resetting like whatever858 mentioned. I got a response after holding buttons for 10 secs. It was just an Apple and wouldn't do anything else. Several tries later, I gave up. Within a few seconds, it's back on like nothing ever happened.

You need to hold down the middle button and the MENU (or up key) at the same time for about ten seconds.

Have you tried resetting it?

Also look here:

Since it is new and still under warranty, I would get in touch with Apple. If it is dead, they will replace it.

Ok I have one of the new IPOD NANO's I think. Its the really small one that has the LCD screen and a clip on the back. I had the same problem with it. What i did was plugged it up to the computer. Then i held down all 3 buttons on the top. (the only buttons on this IPOD) I held them down and it started up in a different mode with a bunch of different options. On top you will see "Standby" Click on "Standby" and it will shut off again but now you can turn it back on like normal. Let me know if it helped. Thanks Jon

Absolutely thank you soooo much for this solution. I thought I had lost all my music and my ipod, as many of the songs are loaded by CDs from an older computer. I am going now to back up all the music. All I had to do was press the menu and centre button at the same time for about 10 seconds. You are a rockstar aiges303

Do the 5 R's suggested in the user's manual first. If those fail, then the player has an internal problem and needs to be replaced.

hold the menu and select button for six seconds and pray it works, otherwise it may be a software malfunction.

Water damage ipod nano


It looks like your Ipod is damaged beyond repair.
If it could be repaired it maybe too expensive. I suggest you put your money towards a new Ipod.

My new drill suddenly stopped working even though the battery has been charged OK.


Is it Nano li-ion? have you got another spare battery to double- check?
I experienced the same problem with 18V Dewalt nano li-ion battery. Was fully charged, came to work- Dead!!! I was lucky I had spare one, so then i was ok, but anyways had to buy a new one. Check on these things:
1. Battery is faulty. If u have any chances to ask someone who has the same gun (voltage is very important!!! has to be the same!!!- 12V battery to 12V gun, 14.4 to 14.4, 18 to 18 etc). Put your battery into that other gun. If You find the same problem that means your battery is dead.
2.Gun with battery contacts. If you 100% sure, that batterIES (check 2 batteries, or more) are OK, check bottom contacts where u put battery in, use WD40, or similar to clean them.
3. Least common Dewalt thing (Most common in Panasonic drills) is trigger contacts.
Basically i do not know what model is your dewalt, i was only talking in general, but there are no miracles- stopped working suddenly, and what u describe new, for instance my new drill dw727kd is less than 1 year old, i was too stuppid to open that battery myself to void warranty :(
AAAAHHH!!!!!! One more thing - If you have not tried to open these screws- check your nearest Dewalt authorised repair center- new NANO batteries have 2year warranty!

Let both buttons go.

The new ipod nano


How old is it? if it's under warranty apple may fix it.
Simply, if you charge your iPod through you computer then the battery could be damaged. USB ports only put out 5 volts. If you have an AC charger that puts out 9.5 volts then consider charging it with that. Some AC adapters only put out 5 volts for the purpose matching the USB standard, but it's not good for the ipod.

Won't turn on


tammy,

It sounds like you either need a new battery pack, or the iPod itself has to be replaced/upgraded.

Please let me know if this helps. Take care!

Ipod not turning on/not recharging


Have you tried holding down the menu button and the middle circle button?
first place your ipos somewhere flat and press down the circle button and the menu button,make sure your not touching any other part of the click wheel.hold them down for about 5 seconds untill the apple logo appears.then let go,and it should be back to normal.you can use this procedure any time that it freezes or stops working.Hope fully that should fix your problem.if not i suggest you get it repaired under your warrenty.
Good Luck.

Regards.

Battery Problem?


It's possible you damaged the battery but not likely. The ipod has a circuit inside it to prevent overcharging (i.e. it stop scharging when the battery is full).
I would try the five R's at apple's website and then try charging it again and see if it fixes the problem.
See the five R's here:
