Question about Apple iPod nano

1 Answer

Freezing iPod A very weird problem. My iPod works on occasion, but then sometimes it completely stops in the middle of a song, freezes, and when I try to reset it and turn it back on, I get an Apple logo that pops up, followed by either a picture of an iPod with ?X?s? over its eyes (in other words, dead,) or a picture of a battery, and then it provides me with Apple?s support address.

IPod classic stopped shuffling this weekend. I've had it for several months and it's worked just fine, but all of the sudden it stopped shuffling songs within playlists that were set to shuffle. ...

Hey press the play pause button and the enter button at the same time if it has a lock move it baca and forte 6 times while holding play pause button and enter/centered button for 6 seconds, that should solve from freezing ipods to non functioning well :)

Keeps freezing on me, especially when I forward to

Your best bet would be to do a soft reset of the ipod:
  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.
To reset iPod, iPod (scroll wheel), iPod (touch wheel), and iPod (dock connector) ipodg1-2.gif ipodg3.gif
  1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
  2. Press and hold the Play/Pause and Menu buttons simultaneously until the Apple/iPod logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.

If this does not work then you may have to re-format the ipod in itunes. If you click on the ipod in itunes you should see a RESTORE option on the main page.

My ipod nano screen will just go blank. What's going on?

Hello there.These i pods are noted for what they call freezing up.Theres no real fix for this problem.Sometimes if you put to much video in them they will do this more often and the only way to kind of prevent this is to charge battery fully before each use and sometimes one of the only ways to get it to go back to there main screen is letting in run completely dead then recharging it.Sometimes when I'm lucky with mine i'll hold down the play pause button and display will come back on..Hope this is helpful for you.Have a great day...
