When i turn on my ipod the screen is white how do ifix this


Here are some possible solutions to your problem.

Reset the iPod
  1. Turn the Hold switch on, then back to off.
  2. Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for 10 seconds (until the Apple logo appears).
  3. You may need to repeat the reset several times.
If this does not work, put the iPod into forced disk mode.

Forced Disk Mode
  1. Put your iPod into the charger.
  2. Turn the Hold switch on, then back to off.
  3. Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons until the Apple logo appears.
  4. Immediately switch your fingers to press and hold the Select and the Play/Pause buttons until "Disk Mode" appears at the top.
Putting the iPod into forced disk mode usually resolves this issue. If it does work, plug your iPod into the computer and connect it to iTunes and reset it. If this still does not work, use the restore feature in iTunes with your iPod. Hope this helps!

My ipod nano screen is white and when I try to reset by pressing the menu and select buttons it just goes dark. What do I do??


Welcome to Fixya

Looks like the software just hanged-up on you. Try to reset the Ipod by following the procedures below.

1st option:
Turn the Hold switch on, then back to off.
Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for 10 seconds (until the Apple logo appears).
You may need to repeat the reset several times.
If the reset doesn't help, then put the iPod into forced disk mode.

2nd option (Disk Mode):
Plug the iPod into a high-powered USB port, let it sit for 2 hours, then disconnect it. If you have a wall charger, plug in the iPod, then follow these steps while it is still plugged in.
Turn the Hold switch on, then back to off.
Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons until the Apple logo appears
Immediately switch your figures to press and hold the Select and the Play/Pause buttons until "Disk Mode" appears at the top.
For a lot of people, this solves the problem. Connect the iPod to the computer and (assuming it shows up) reset the iPod again to get it out of Disk Mode. If at this point you still have the white screen, restore the iPod using the restore function in iTunes under the Summary tab (this will erase everything on the iPod and put it at factory settings).
Note: Do not disconnect or eject the iPod until the store is totally done. After you think it's done, wait another five minutes.

Thanks for choosing Fixya!

My ipod displays red x icon and i cant get it into disk mode


Hi

The iPod should be charged before placing it into disk mode. To place the iPod into disk mode toggle the Hold switch on and off. (First set it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for at least 10 seconds until the Apple logo appears then release the Menu and Select buttons and immediately press and hold the Select and the Play/Pause button until the Disk Mode screen appears. Now connect the iPod to your computer; the screen on the iPod will change and say "Do not disconnect". If you are facingg any difficulty in putting the iPod mode into disk mode, set it on a flat surface. Make sure that the finger pressing the Select button is not touching the Click Wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Play/Pause button toward the outside of the Click Wheel and not near the center.
If you are still unable to put your iPod with a Click Wheel into Disk Mode, use one finger from one hand to press the Select button, and one finger from the other hand to press the Play/Pause button.

Please do accept this solution and revert for further assistance.

Thanks

I Have a 3rd gen ipod and its stuck on the lanuage


Try reseting it. If that does not resolve the issue, put it into disc mode and restore again. If these steps do not help please let me know.

Learning how to reset or restart your iPod:
Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.) Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 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.
