Question about Apple iPod nano

1 Answer

I was charging my ipod nano (2nd generation) on my laptop, a Macintosh. I started at 10:00 pm and checked on it at 2:00 am and say that the screen was red with white lines running across it vertically. It keeps on going and won't stop. It's about three years old. I haven't dropped, scratched, or put it in water. What do I do?

Hi there,

You may need to reset your ipod using the following steps:

1. Slide the "Hold" switch to "hold" and then turn it off again.

2. Press and hold the Menu and Select or Center buttons for like 8-10 seconds until the Apple logo appears.

That's it! Please let me know how this goes. Thanks for using FixYa.

My ipod nano wont connect to my computer or turn on at all i have the same issue. My ipod nano 2nd Gen won't connect to the computer or charge in any USB port on my computer or my husband's laptop.


there is a high probability that you need a new battery installed in your ipod. However, the ipods don't charge all that well from the usb port. If you have an a/c charger, use it or get one. you can find um cheap like 10 dollars at a drug store.
the battery isn't outrageous in price but that ipod does require the battery to be soldered in.
do a search in the the fixya business guide and you will find me and many others. find someone near you and get your battery done.

Problem with ihome and ipod nano.


yes, unfortunately the ihome iH9 is not compatible with previous models of the ipod nano.

if you want a similar device, there are many other docking stations for the ipod that are ip0 that ARE compatible with the ipod nano 2G

iH85B is another ihome dock which is compatible with all ipods after the ipod mini (including the ipod nano 2G)

To reset an iPod with a Click Wheel, including: ipodnano3.jpg ipodclassic.jpg icon_ipod_5g.gif ipodnano2.jpg ipodnano.jpg ipodphoto.gif ipodg4.gif ipodmini.gif
  • iPod nano (3rd generation)
  • iPod classic
  • iPod (5th generation)
  • iPod nano (2nd generation)
  • iPod nano
  • iPod with color display (iPod photo)
  • iPod (Click Wheel)
  • iPod mini
  • iPod mini (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 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 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.
