Hi Do this first

If will not work follow these steps:
o reset your iPod nano (2nd generation):
* 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.
Tip:o 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.o 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.
Retry:
Retry your iPod with a different USB port on your computer, not a USB port on your keyboard or hub.
Restart:
Restart your computer, and make sure that you have the latest software updates installed.Note:
* To update your Windows software, select Windows Update from the Tools menu of Internet Explorer.* To update your Mac OS software, select Software Update from the Apple menu.


Reinstall
* To update and reinstall your iPod software, first download the latest version of iTunes.* Next, open the new version of iTunes and connect your iPod to your computer.* Select your iPod in the source list and click "Check for Update" under the Summary tab. iTunes will check to see if your iPod needs to be updated and perform the update for you.



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:

I've got an iPod 3rd gen and i'm trying to restore it, but is coming up with an error (2003). Can you help?


Hi joshua4god...

"Try this: I found this solution by one of the other experts here,,.

Turn off your ipod, and hold the home button, and plug it into itunes while still holding the home button until the itunes symbol appears with a cable under it.
Itunes should say "ipod found in restore mode".
Restore your ipod to either a backup of that ipod if there is one, or set up a new ipod.
Setting up a new ipod will fix any previous problem.

Ipod will not shut off or do anything. menu stays on.


Flip on the hold switch, then flip it off. After that hold down both the middle button and the menu button. This will reset the ipod. If this doesnt work you may have to just let the battery die.

Apple ipod 15GB


You should really post this query in the correct section to get the best results, since your player is not a 2GB Nano, but:

First, try resetting it -
Toggle the Hold switch (set it to Hold, then turn
it off again). Then press Menu and Play/Pause
simultaneously for about 5 seconds, until the
Apple logo appears.

If that fails, you will have to put the device into recovery mode (back up all songs if possible, b/c this will erase every song on your iPod):

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.
  3. Open iTunes, and then connect your iPod to your computer using the USB or FireWire cable that came with your iPod.
  4. After a few moments, your iPod will appear in the Source panel in iTunes.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. If you are using a Mac, a message will appear prompting you to enter an administrator’s name and password.
  8. 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).
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
Now, you're all set!

It sounds as if one of the keys is stuck. You can try pushing each key several times in quick succession, but you will probably need a qualified technician to go any further, as there are no user serviceable parts inside.
