Make sure your headphones are working properly by testing with your computer headphone jack.

Is the headphone port on the Nano loose?

Connect the Nano to your iPod dock and see if you can head audio through the docks headphone jack.

If the headphones work, and you can get audio out of the dock headphone port, then there is a problem with your Nanos headphone jack.

Which model ipod ??
In keeping with Apple's goal to make user-friendly, streamlined products, the designers of the iPod built in easy-to-use reset functions into each iPod model.
Resetting the iPod is similar to rebooting a computer as all songs and data stored on the device stay there, and only temporary information (such as which song is playing) gets reset.
Follow these steps to reset an iPod.
Toggle the "Hold" switch to the "On" position, then "Off."
The "Hold" switch is the small sliding switch on the top of the iPod.
Move it to the "On" position to show an orange rectangle. Move it back to the "Off" position to show a white rectangle.
Hold the "Menu" and "Center" buttons.
Press the 2 buttons at the same time for between 8 and 10 seconds.
Your screen will go blank and then boot up with a dark Apple icon.
The icon eventually turns bright and brings you back to your main menu once the reset is complete.


Check your iPod to make sure it plays properly. If the iPod still does not work repeat the reset process.

Scroll Wheel and Touch Wheel iPods

Move the "Hold" switch from "On" to "Off."


Press the "Play/Pause" button and the "Menu" button at the same time.
Press both buttons together for approximately 6 to 8 seconds.
This initiates the self-running reset process.

Make sure the reset was successful.
If problems persist you may need to perform the reset process once again.
iPod Nano

Move the on-off switch to the "Off" position that shows the green strip.
Leave the iPod Nano in this position for 5 seconds.


Move the switch back to the "On" position.

Use your iPod Nano to make sure the reset worked properly and all your music is intact.

Memory loss on ipod


The ipod nanos the smallest product in the Apple iPod line. The fourth generation Nano comes in two different capacities, each capable of holding thousands of songs.
    Capacities
  1. The fourth generation iPod Nano comes in 8 GB and 16 GB models. The 8 GB version can hold 2,000 songs, and the 16 GB version can hold 4,000 songs.
  2. Tips
  3. Song capacity estimates are based on music encoded in Apple's proprietary format at a standard, average bitrate. The higher the bitrate, the better the quality. Songs deviating from Apple's standard (for example, CD-quality music or high bitrate MP3s) will use more disk space.
  4. History
  5. Nano's predecessor, the iPod Mini, was released on January 6, 2004, and was available with a 4 GB hard drive. The Nano was first released on September 7, 2005, and was the first iPod to use flash memory. It was first available in 2 GB and 4 GB versions. The fourth generation Nano was released on September 9, 2008.
  6. Size
  7. The fourth generation iPod Nano is 3.6" tall and 1.5" wide.
  8. Video
  9. The third generation Nano, released on September 5, 2007, was the first Nano to feature video playback. Storing videos on Nano can dramatically reduce the amount of songs it can hold.

Press and hold the center button while holding down the menu button. This will reboot your Ipod. Check your IPod cable to see if its shorted. If might have transferred a song and crash in the middle of the transfer.

Apple ipod nano wont play the full song


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.

Shows songs, but doesnt play them


Have you tried holding the select (center) and menu buttons together? This will completely reset your iPod to its factory settings, whereupon you can plug it into your computer and sync your songs back.

I'd recommend restoring the firmware to the latest version as well, even if you had the most current version installed, as this will usually aid with these kinds of software-induced problems.

OK. Not that I know exactly what your issue is but I can definitely see a problem pattern. Couple of ideas...what are u playing this on...headphones or speakers....change to a different output medium...if you are using the FM transmitter...try it without it...use headphones etc. My thought is perhaps whatever you are playing on is shorted out and possibly sending power back into the ipod causing erratic behavior and/or reboot lockup. Second...clean the entire Ipod (reset to factory) and connect it to a different computer and transfer just ONE song and play it. Let me know about how this works out...i am curious about your issue.
