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.

How to Unlock an iPod Nano Code
With the latest iPod Nano model, you can set a four-digit code and lock all intruders from accessing your iPod. In order to use the device's functions again, you need to enter the correct code. However, if you happen to lose or forget the code, you will need to find another way to unlock your iPod Nano.
Things You'll Need:
iPod Nano Mac or PC computer iPod USB cable
1 Plug the iPod USB cable into the bottom of your iPod Nano. Plug the other end of the USB cable into a free USB port on your Mac or PC computer. Open the iTunes program by using the Dock on a Mac or the Start menu on a PC.
2 Select your iPod Nano from the "Devices" list in the main iTunes window. Click on the "Sync" button to make a connection between your computer and your iPod Nano.
3 Click on the "Eject" symbol once the syncing process is complete. Remove your iPod Nano from the USB cable. The iPod's lock code will now be reset and you will be able to access all features again.
4 Navigate to the "Screen Lock" option in the iPod menu to lock your iPod's screen again. Since your iPod's lock code was just reset, you will be prompted to select a new four-digit code.

My ipod nano keeps frezzing how can you solve the problem?


Hello :

1: First make sure that your iPod’s hold button isn’t on. This is the little switch at the top left corner of the iPod video that you can move to “lock” the iPod’s buttons. If this is on, you’ll see a little orange area at the top of the iPod nano and a lock icon on the iPod’s screen. If you see either of these, move the switch back and see if this fixes the problem.
If the hold switch wasn’t the problem do the following :

2: Move the hold switch to the on position and then move it back to off .

3: Hold down the Menu button on the clickwheel and the center button at the same time. Hold these together for 6-10 seconds. This should restart the iPod nano. You’ll know the iPod is restarting when the screen changes and the Apple logo appears.

4: If this doesn’t work at first, you should repeat the steps .

5: If this doesn’t work, you should try plugging your iPod into a power source and let it charge. Then repeat the steps.

If that didn't help , then you should take your NANO to the service .

good luck .

My nano is frozen, it lights up but can't get it to move to the next screen


Hold the Menu and Select (center) buttons at the same time for 5-10 seconds, or until you see the Apple logo. This should reset the device and hopefully you'll be good to go. If the issue persists, try and connect to iTunes and reformat your nano.

    Locked ipod nano


    Did you first slide the hold switch to HOLD and then back before holding the menu and center buttons down together? That worked for my iPod nano 4th generation after it "locked up" and became non-responsive.
