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.
  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.
  6. If this doesn’t work, you may have a bigger problem, and ought to get more help.

Attempt a hard reboot of the device by holding the home button and the power button at the same time. Contact AppleCare if the problem persists. Also, don't use the iPad's charger on the iPod or an iPhone. It doesn't play well with it.

Ipod player wont charge ipod


I probably have the same type charger / player that I also purchased from Wal Mart. If it plays your ipod it should also charge it. Make sure the lock button on the ipod is unlocked and it's turned off. If that does not work keep it unlocked and leave it on. On systems like we have that are not iHomes they sometimes have trouble figuring out what brand they need to charge.

Buttons don't work on ipod nano


Hi,
Had the same probs with 4th gen nano. Keys frozen. Reset it loads of times etc etc.
BUT I HAVE NOW FOUND A SOLUTION. !!!!!!!!!!
Use a very sharp knife or razer blade and make a small gap at the bottom, back. Between the white bottom plate and back of your ipod. While the knif is in you will notice the keys start working!!!! I used a small peice of a playing card and wedged it in the gap, up the back, only about 10mm. Its worked ever since!!!!! Hurray
PASS ON THE SOLUTION AS THIS IS A COMMON FAULT.

My ipod middle button doesnt work what can i do help


This usually happens if the membrane of the action button deteriorates and the gold plated contacts between membrane and logic board do no longer establish good contact.
There are specialized online tutorials with iPod Repair instructions that will guide you through the steps of taking it apart and cleaning the contact or replacing the button altogether otherwise you'll have to send it to any third party iPod repair service and they'll replace the membrane for you.

Screen not working on ipod Need Help


this sounds like you have left the ipod in a hot car or in the sun too long, if so there is not a true fix for this problem. You can always take it in for a fix at an apple store.
