SOURCE: Ipod nano and ipod video 5th generation

First off, simply press the center and menu buttons at the same time to reset the iPod video. That is the common way to fix a frozen iPod.

In regards to the Nano, sounds like the scroll wheel is defective. We would recommend replacing the scroll wheel if a reset does not do the trick.

SOURCE: Ipod shuffle (2nd gen) completely dead

you are still under warranty...take it to the sony apple store...they will fix it /replace it or tell you there is cost if it not the battery (note do not tell them you charged overnight, and for the future do chage any gadgets more than 3-4 hrs) when you do charge over night you are actually shorten the battery life span or overcharge....so as soon as you come home from school,work,whatever cell/ipod or any other device needs to be charge...charge it now and unplug before you go to bed....

SOURCE: My 3rd Generation iPod Nano died and won't charge.

You may just need to leave it plugged in for a few hours and see if it comes to life. It is usually the case.

I am sure you will be fine.. give it a try

Plug it into your computer and connect with iTunes. Sync your music. This will also charge it. I'm not sure what kinds of games are available on the nano. If you want games get an iPod Touch.

Ipod Nano 5th Gen. 3 months old and died--won't restore either.


Hi there,

A possible problem with the battery. Battery life depends on how you frequently used the devised and how you handled the proper cycle to charged and drained the battery.

Battery charging should complete it's charging hours and you have to properly fully drained the battery at least once a week, this will make the battery life go longer.

Initially try to plug and connect the Ipod into your computer and see to it that it was turning ON, or it was giving any sign that it was responding when you connect it to the computer.

Is there any incidents happen that you got a problem on charging the unit, or any like incidents like power outage on the area or a short circuit on the device charger?

Let me know here again for further instruction and clarification.

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.
