    I am having the same problem also. My nano was plugged in for the first time and has been charging for over an hour, but I have never seen the set-up assistant that it is talking about. I'm reading the online manual, but so far no help.

Unlock an iPod Model A1199
Although the second generation iPod Nano (also known as 2G) uses a four-digit pass code that prevents unauthorized access to your iPod by locking the screen, you can also unlock the device by plugging it into your computer's USB 2.0 port.
When the 2G iPod Nano is connected to the computer it is synchronized, and automatically unlocks the screen according to the official Apple site.
In order to successfully unlock the Nano it must be plugged into the primary computer used for synchronizing content.

Click "Start," "All Programs" and "iTunes" on your PC's desktop, or click "iTunes" on the Macintosh's desktop dock.
Plug the iPod Nano's cable into the docking port on the iPod Nano.
Plug the other end into the USB port on the computer to open iTunes.
Click "Controls" at the top of the iTunes' menu, and select "Eject iPod."
The iPod Nano's screen will be unlocked once it is ejected from your computer.

    Washed comes on when plugged into computer and functions but not when unplugged


    You should try resetting the ipod by pressing and holding both the menu and center buttons down until you see an apple appear on the screen or for at least ten seconds. If nothing happens by resetting it without being connected to your computer; I would try restoring it using itunes i've copy and pasted those steps below for you

    How to restore iPod (ARTICLE NUMBER HT1339) Ensure that you have an active Internet connection
    as new versions of iTunes and iPod Software may
    need to be downloaded to your computer. Download and install the latest version of iTunes
    if you do not already have it installed. Open iTunes, and then connect your iPod to your
    computer using the USB or FireWire cable that came
    with your iPod. After a few moments, your iPod will appear in the
    Source panel in iTunes. Select your iPod in the Source panel and you will
    see information about your iPod appear in the
    Summary tab of the main iTunes windows. Click the Restore button. You will be prompted
    with one or more restore options that may prompt
    iTunes to automatically download 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 available. Restore Option 4: Restore and Update - Restores with the latest
    iPod Software available. If you are using a Mac, a message will appear
    prompting you to enter an administrator’s name and
    password. 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 present one of two messages on screen
    with instructions specific to the iPod model you
    are restoring. Restore Instruction 1: Disconnect iPod and connect
    it to iPod Power Adapter (typically applies to
    older iPod models). Restore Instruction 2: Leave iPod connected to
    computer to complete restore (typically applies
    newer iPod models). 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. 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 after a reset and restore it still will not work while not connected; I would try putting it in a DRY bowl of rice over night. You may still have moisture in the ipod. Usually rice works pretty good for this issue. Hopefully, the ipod wasn't damaged and this helped you out. Cheers :)

    Ipod Nano can't unlock volume lock


    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.

    If that doesn't work, try a restore. This will return it go factory settings.

    How to restore iPod
    1. Ensure that you have an active Internet connection as new versions of iTunes and iPod Software may need to be downloaded to your computer.
    2. Download and install the latest version of iTunes if you do not already have it installed.
