That is not a problem follow the steps below. If you cannot remember the passcode, you will need to restore your device using the computer with
which you last synced it. This allows you to reset your passcode and resync the data from the
device (or restore from a backup). If you restore on a different computer that was never synced
with the device, you will be able to unlock the device for use and remove the passcode, but your
data will not be present Follow the steps that i have outlined below. If this does not completely help your situation
please let me know and i will be glad to assist you. According to Apple, if you have forgotten the code, you can unlock the IPod by doing the
following: 1 If you can't unlock IPod using either [the code or connecting it to the computer you use to
manage its songs. . . Plug the iPod USB cable into the bottom of the iPod Nano. 2 Plug the other end of the iPod USB cable into a free USB port on a Mac or PC computer. 3 Open the iTunes application by clicking on the Dock icon on a Mac or using the Start menu on a
PC. 4 Click on the name of your iPod Nano under the "Devices" list in the iTunes window. 5 Click on the "Sync" button to establish a connection between your iPod and the computer. 6 Click on the eject symbol next to your iPod's name after the syncing process has finished. 7 Unplug your iPod Nano. The device will be unlocked and you will be able to access all normal
features again. if that does not work you can restore your iPod to factory settings using iPod Updater. Please
note that this will erase all data on your iPod. Afterwards, you can add your music and data back to your iPod. If you want to change the primary computer that your IPod is associated with, do this: 1. Restore your iPod. WARNING: The restore process cannot be undone. All of your songs and files will be deleted. Always make a backup of your important data. 2. Connect your iPod to the computer that you want to be the primary computer. 3. Open iTunes and synchronize. Apple also notes that company "representatives cannot unlock an iPod if you forget your
combination. If you can't unlock your iPod and you don't have access to the primary computer,
your only option is to restore the IPod, which will erase all music and data." If you need further assistance please feel free to follow up with a comment and i will be here to
assist you. If this assisted you please feel free to rate the comment. thanks and have a great

My iPod can't enter passcode. The screen remains there till the iPod is out of battery. It can't go into sleep mode. When I plug it to the charger, it shows that it is charging after a few minutes.

Good day,

I came across a few situations where someone has forgotten their iPod's passcode and now can't use it.

I will give some instructions on how to possibly repair this problem.

The first thing you can try is to connect your Ipod to it's HOME Computer. This will normally override the lock. Only thing is that you need the lock code to be able to assign a new code.

Another method I came across is to connect your Ipod to a computer. Make sure you are able to see all hidden folders. Browse to your Ipod on My Computer and double click on your Ipod folder/location. Open the folder named "iPod_Control" inside the folder open the folder "Device". Inside the device folder rename the file "_locked" to "_unlocked".

These two methods has worked for me in the past, so please feel free to let me know if this help you!

Won't turn on

Is your iPod fully charged? Sometimes the batteries become so depleted of charge that an accessory charger won't turn it on.

-Try plugging it in to your computer or a wall charger for a while, time will vary but it may turn on.

-If it is not turning on your computer will never recognize it, thus you won't be able to do a restore with iTunes.

-Try a hard restart as well this could help you.

Some sweat fell on the wheel and the ipod turned off. when i tried to charge it it got very hot it still wont turn on

Did the ipod show any symbol while it was on charge. Sometimes, the atmospheric temperature & humidity of surrounding area makes the device hot even after a few minutes of charge. if this is the case then
1. Remove any jacket/covering/sleeve of your ipod. 2. Connect to power outlet or usb for charging however make sure it is as far away from pc/laptop as possible and in a breezy area. 3. Charge for 15 minutes. 4. Hold down the menu and middle button for 30 seconds until the apple symbol appears.
In case there is a problem with internal circuitry, the ipod will show one of its distress symbols.

Why won't WMPlayer recognize my Ipod?

I heard that the IPod was made to run just with I Tunes from Apple. Wen you upload a file from your computer to the IPod, it changes the name of file, and other things too, so the IPod just read these names. Thats why some people don´t like Ipod, i´m one of them.
