Reset your Ipod using the following procedure:
Turn hold on (lock)
Turn hold off (unlock)
Hold in Menu button and middle button until Ipod shuts down and starts up again.

This should remove the lock on the Ipod.

Turn the switch like you would to lock it if you were done using it (switch to the right), so it will be locked. Then, move the switch to the left were the orange is showing on to right to unlock it. Hold down the pause button untill your ipod shuts off (about five seconds). Then when you turn your ipod back on, it will be unlocked for you to use.

I hope this helps. Please rate my solution.

Ihave a ipod 8gb an cant turn it on without putting it on lock an then i cant do anything with it cause its on lock an if i unlock it, it turns off again


Try to connect it to your computer, open iTunes and Click Restore. You will lose all your music[if you're like me it's all still on the computer so no worries] but it should fix your problem.

I locked my Ipod and i cant remember the lock code


Restore your iPod via itunes, it will take away all your photos/music on your iPod but it will take away the code!

My Ipod Nano 4G won't open


  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.
  2. If the hold switch wasn’t the problem do the following:
  3. Move the hold switch to the on position and then move it back to off.
  4. 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.
  5. If this doesn’t work at first, you should repeat step 4

I forgot my password and is locked


OOPS, try this:
connect it to your computer and click reset when your ipod nano comes up on itunes. you should click on the ipod name in the left side of your screen (lwhere the itunes library and store icons are located) and there should be a button that says restore or reset your ipod to origional settings. it will erase all passwords.
Let me know if this helps

Ipod nano 3rd gen.


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.
