Try This next time ....
Not all, but many 5G iPod owners have had issues with the latest iPod updates, I had this problem myself a day ago & was almost ready to send it in for a replacement, some HAVE sent theirs in. Anyways, after updating the iPod the iPod no longer works!! All you get is a blank white screen (White Screen Of Death), 3 beeping tones and you hear the hard drive click. Simply resetting the iPod will do nothing, but get you another three beeps & a click. But to resolve this issue do the following, this had worked for me as well as others...

Extended Reset
1) Move the LOCK to the "ON" position.
2) Move it back to the "OFF" position.
3) Hold the "Centre" button then hold down the "MENU" button until you hear the harddrive make the "click" noise.
4) As soon as you hear the drive "click" press and hold the "Centre" button then press & hold the Play/Pause button, you should then see the Apple Logo" like normal and it should then start up like with no problem.

I've taken a screen from a faulty 4GB nano which just shows the iPod support error sign and put it in an 8GB nano which shows a white screen and beeps twice. Restores with iTunes fine. Even put the screen back again to check and it works fine, so it may not be that the screen's dead!

It's stuck and won't play the songs


  1. First make sure that your iPod’s hold button is of. (This is the little switch at the top left corner).
  2. Move the hold switch to the on position and then move it back to off.
  3. Hold down the Menu button on the clickwheel and the center button at the same time. Hold these together for 6-10 seconds. This should restart the iPod. You’ll know the iPod is restarting when the screen changes and the Apple logo appears.
  4. If this doesn’t work at first, you should repeat the steps.
  5. If this doesn’t work, you should try plugging your iPod into a power source and let it charge. Then repeat the steps.

My iPod turns on but the buttons dont work! They were working just fine then they stopped! How do i fix it?


Try this! http://ipod.about.com/od/troubleshootingyouripod/ht/reset_ipod_nano.htm Difficulty: Easy Time Required: Less than 1 Minute Here's How:
  1. NOTE: First make sure that your iPod’s hold button isn’t on. This is the little switch at the top left corner of the iPod video that you can move to “lock” the iPod’s buttons. If this is on, you’ll see a little orange area at the top of the iPod nano and a lock icon on the iPod’s screen. If you see either of these, move the switch back and see if this fixes the problem.
    If the hold switch wasn’t the problem do the following:
  2. Move the hold switch to the on position and then move it back to off.
  3. Hold down the Menu button on the clickwheel and the center button at the same time. Hold these together for 6-10 seconds. This should restart the iPod nano. You’ll know the iPod is restarting when the screen changes and the Apple logo appears.

My 1st gen ipod has a blank screen


If your ipod has a white screen reset your ipod. You can do this by pressing and holding the menu button and the center button in your ipod. Keep pressing both until the apple logo appears this should reset your ipod. If it does not work try again. This worked for mine good luck :)
