Question about Apple iPod nano

My Ipod has the white screen. I can hear it

My Ipod has the white screen. I can hear it clicking, and if I manage to push the right combinations of buttons I can even get it to play. I have tried to reset it - no good. Last weekend I backed up my music and restored the entire disk. Still not working. Any other suggestions? If not, is their a cheat sheet on the menus for the ipod. If I can figure out how many times I have to click on certain things, I may be able to use this without the screen....for now I am stuck with the same song playing over and over again. My co-workers would like to kill me.

First thing to try is a reset

To reset your 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 Select buttons until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 10 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.

After that a restore

Restore
  • Note: Because Restore erases all of the songs and files on iPod, make sure to back up any files you've saved on the iPod disk. All of your songs, videos, podcasts, audiobooks, and games can be loaded back to your iPod provided that you have them stored in your itunes Library.
How to restore your iPod:
For Windows:
  • 1. Make sure you've reinstalled the latest version of itunes.
  • 2. Open itunes, and then connect your iPod to your computer.
  • 3. After a few moments, it will appear in the source list in itunes.
  • 4. Select your iPod in the source list and you will see information about it appear in the Summary tab of the main itunes windows.
  • 5. Click the Restore button. You will be prompted with one or more restore options that may prompt itunes to automatically download of the latest iPod Software. The 4 possible restore options are:
    • Restore Option 1: Restore - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod.
    • Restore Option 2: Use Same Version - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod even though a newer version is available.
    • Restore Option 3: Use Newest Version - Restores with the latest iPod Software on your computer.
    • Restore Option 4: Restore and Update - Restores with the latest iPod Software on your computer.
  • 6. A progress bar will appear on the computer screen indicating that the first stage of the restore process has started. When this stage is completed, itunes will instruct you to leave iPod connected to your computer to complete restore.
  • 7. During the stage 2 of the restore process, the iPod will show an Apple logo as well as a progress bar at the bottom of the display. It is critical that the iPod remains connected to the computer or iPod Power adapter during this stage. Note: The progress bar may be difficult to see since the backlight on the iPod display may be off.
  • 8. After stage 2 of the restore process is complete and the iPod is connected to the computer, the itunes Setup Assistant window will appear asking you to name your iPod and choose your syncing preferences similar to when you connected your iPod for the first time.
If the problem still isn't fixed take it back to the shop for a replacement.

My volumn on my ipod 4th gen is not working and when i go to settings it only shows languages no volumn setting


One of the major warnings Apple includes with all of its iPods is the permanent hearing damage that could occur if you have the volume on your iPod turned up too high.


To help combat the problem, the iPod comes with a feature that allows you to set a maximum volume level that your iPod can be played at that level is controlled by a combination that can keep others namely children from turning the volume up to dangerous levels.


The good news is, if that combination falls into the wrong hands, it can be reset.


Use your iPod's click wheel to scroll down to "Settings."


Press the center button located in the middle of the click wheel to select the settings menu.

Scroll down to "Playback" and press the center button to select it.


Scroll to "Volume Limit" and press the center button to select it.


Use the click wheel to scroll to the first number of the old combination and press the center button to select it.


Repeat this process for all four numbers of the old combination.


Use the click wheel to scroll to where you want the maximum volume to be set and press the center button.


Use the click wheel to scroll to "Lock" and press the center button.


Use the click wheel to enter the first number of the new combination when the message "Enter New Combination" appears on the screen repeat the process for the three remaining numbers.


Once the four numbers have been entered, your iPod's maximum volume will be set and your password will be changed.

hope this helps

How to unlock your ipod nano from it be locked to listen to music


In the Apple Support Site, Apple notes that the "Screen Lock" function:
Allows you to set a 4-digit combination to prevent someone else from using your iPod while it is not attached to a computer. When an iPod is locked, you must enter the combination to unlock the screen. This feature is different from the Hold switch in that the Hold switch only prevents iPod from turning on accidentally -- not keeping snoops out. Screen Lock only locks users out of the user interface. It does not encrypt data on your iPod. For example, if you use Screen Lock and then connect your iPod to a computer, you'll be able to manage music on your iPod with itunes and access all data on it in disk mode (contacts, notes, and any other files you have stored on the iPod). This support document also provides additional information on locking and unlocking the iPod. According to Apple, if you have forgotten the code, you can unlock the iPod by doing the following:
Connect your iPod to the primary computer you use it with (the first one iPod synced with), and open iTunes. When you disconnect iPod from the computer, it will no longer be locked. If you can't unlock iPod using either [the code or connecting it to the computer you use to manage its songs]. . . you can restore your iPod to factory settings using iPod Updater. Please note that this will erase all data on your iPod. Afterwards, you can add your music and data back to your iPod. If you want to change the primary computer that your iPod is associated with, do this: 1. Restore your iPod. Warning: The restore process cannot be undone. All of your songs and files will be deleted. Always make a backup of your important data. 2. Connect your iPod to the computer that you want to be the primary computer. 3. Open iTunes and synchronize. Apple also notes that company "representatives cannot unlock an iPod if you forget your combination. If you can't unlock your iPod and you don't have access to the primary computer, your only option is to restore the iPod, which will erase all music and data."

I have a white screen but i can still hear music


The screen is broken. Google "iPod repairs" in your country and they might be able to replace it. Otherwise you can get an exchange unit from Apple. Take it to your nearest Authorised Apple Service Centre and they will get it exchanged in a couple of days. Unfortunately this might cost almost as much as a new one.

Generation 2 Ipod won't turn on


Hi,
Your screen probably needs to be replaced. They do go bad. Did your iPod get wet or was it dropped? This will also cause the screen to go bad.. Good news is that the screen can be replaced. The bad news is that it costs about $60. Hope that helps.

How do I Unlock Ipod screen if I forgot the 4 digit password?


This is a bad idea, if you lock it. Follow the guide to it:

1. Get your Ipod Charger (USB) and charge it in on your laptop/computer.

2. Make sure you got the latest Itunes, if not go to www.apple.com

3. Of course you will lose all of your data, songs, videos.
4. Click Restore on Itunes

5. After it finishes restoring, write your Ipod name and click ok.

6. Unplug the USB Cable and click any language you come from.

It should finally work by now.

PS(1): Sorry to lose all of your data.
PS(2): Instead of locking with the combination code, look on the bottom side (the one with the headphone, USB, etc...) there is a lock on the left side. If you push it its lock. To unlock push it the other way around.

Hope this helps! If not, reply this back to me with a problem.

White screen and beeps


Try This next time ....
Not all, but many 5G iPod owners have had issues with the latest iPod updates, I had this problem myself a day ago & was almost ready to send it in for a replacement, some HAVE sent theirs in. Anyways, after updating the iPod the iPod no longer works!! All you get is a blank white screen (White Screen Of Death), 3 beeping tones and you hear the hard drive click. Simply resetting the iPod will do nothing, but get you another three beeps & a click. But to resolve this issue do the following, this had worked for me as well as others...

Extended Reset
1) Move the LOCK to the "ON" position.
2) Move it back to the "OFF" position.
3) Hold the "Centre" button then hold down the "MENU" button until you hear the harddrive make the "click" noise.
4) As soon as you hear the drive "click" press and hold the "Centre" button then press & hold the Play/Pause button, you should then see the Apple Logo" like normal and it should then start up like with no problem.
