How do i fix my 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. b> 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. b> 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.

'disc mode'displayed in window, large tick and o.k to disconnect. machine will not respond.


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.

If for any reason this does not resolve your disc mode/frozen iPod issue please do let me know and remember to rate :)

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.

If you are still unable to reset your iPod, use only one finger from one hand to press the Center (Select) button, and one finger from the other hand to press the Menu button.

80gb ipod video broken clickwheel buttons


Its possible your click wheel has gone bad, what you should try before freaking out is to do a hard reset. To do so hold down the center and menu buttons for 10 seconds. if there is still no response at all, then your clickwheel is fried and you should look online for a new front cover with a new click wheel.
