Important: If your iPod is frozen or won't turn on, it may be because iPod is paused or the Hold switch is in the locked position. If so, a lock symbol appears on the screen. Slide the Hold switch to the unlocked position and check the screen.
To reset an iPod with a Click Wheel: . 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.

Hello.Why wont my ipod nano turn on?


thanks for using fixya to solve your problems, i think the battery is down and need to be charge before you cn power on your ipod again. connect the charger or adapter to the ipod and plug it to AC power supply, leave for a while or some minutes before you power it on.

NOTE: don't always allow your battery to run down before you charge it.

Compliments and best of luck

Wont turn on


Did you try charging it with the USB cord or do you have an adapter that plugs into the wall? If you tried with the USB cord, how long did you let it charge?Did you plug cord directly into computer or do you have external USB hub?Many times the hubs will not have sufficient power to charge.Was your computer"go to sleep"after a while.The ipod will only charge while the computer is awake.
There are a variety of things that could be wrong. If the Ipod sat for a long time the battery could be completely discharged. I've not had this problem on the Nano, but on an old Ipod Mini my sister has. I've noticed that sometimes I need to plug it in with a wall adapter to get the battery charged enough to start up quickly. If the battery is completely discharged,it can take 30 minutes or longer to see any life from the ipod. I would let it charge for few hours if you can then try the reset.
Forgive me for asking this next question...lots of times I ask these basic question and people get mad, but the key lock is off, right? On my Nano there's a small slider switch on the top. In one position the controls are all locked. Please verify that you've got it set to the right position. Mine is locked when I can see the red dot.
Assuming the battery is not totally shot and the key lock is off, it's also possible that it's just "locked up". To reset the Nano press and hold both Menu and Select (center button) for about 5 or 10 seconds. If the Ipod is alive this will reset it.

From your post, I'm not sure if you mean the Ipod was sitting for a long time without being used. If that's the case and it used to work, and it has not gotten wet or anything, then the most likely problem is a bad battery. There are services on the web you can find who will replace the battery for a fee. If, on the other hand, it just suddenly stopped working and the reset does not help you may have a more serious problem. Unfortunately there's no way to tell.

Hope this may help you;

My Ipod Nano Wont Charge on the wall Charger.


Hello Kawase,

I would suggest you try charging the unit this one time by connecting it to the computer. I suspect that the charger may be defective if plugging the wall charger into the iPod has no effect on the low battery warning. If the iPod is able to be charged from the USB port on your computer that would tend to confirm that the charger is not working. If the iPod does not charge when connected to either the computer or the wall charger then you may very well have a another defective iPod.

Best Regards
Ken

I've not had this problem on the Nano, but on an old Ipod Mini my daugher has I've noticed that sometimes I need to plug it in with a wall adapter to get the battery charged enough to start up quickly.

Now for the editorial section. I don't get paid for this. I know it's a strange hobby, but I lke to help when I can. The reason lots of people won't respond to questions like yours is because there's a real chance that your Ipod battery is dead or the unit is just plain broken. So they offer some suggestions which, obviously, won't work and then they get a bad rating. Even if my suggestions don't fix you problem I hope you'll find them useful in deciding if the Ipod is just plain dead. If you have more questions please ask. Thanks and good luck.
