You'll need to replace the click wheel. You can get one on ebay for about $10 and put it in yourself or let a repair shop do it for you for about $40.

This is a common problem on ipods.

IPod Nano 3rd Gen...click wheel seems to be frozen....


Hi, First find whether the Hold switch is in off hold position... ( Hold switch can be found at the botton or on the top of ipod) then try:

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 10 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.

IPOD Third Generation


try a reset first

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.
    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.

2gig Nano stuck on hold


The fact that it works fine when plugged into a power source would suggest your battery is going bad (or has gone bad).

Just a guess.

Ipod will not turn off


Press both the center and menu buttons until the ipod shuts off (about 5 seconds.) it will then reboot itself and the problem should be fixed.

Click Wheel


This usually happens if the iPod wheel is defective, sometimes caused by getting in contact with water sometimes simply through wear and tear. If you're out of warranty, There are specialized online tutorials with iPod Repair instructions that will guide you through the steps of taking it apart and replacing the wheel altogether otherwise you'll have to send it to any third party iPod repair service and they'll replace the wheel for you.
