You have to restore the ipod to remove those locks

Restore

  • Note: Because Restore erases all of the songs and files on iPod, make sure to back up any files you've saved on the iPod disk. All of your songs, videos, podcasts, audiobooks, and games can be loaded back to your iPod provided that you have them stored in your iTunes Library.

How to restore your iPod:
For Windows:
  • 1. Make sure you've reinstalled the latest version of iTunes.
  • 2. Open iTunes, and then connect your iPod to your computer.
  • 3. After a few moments, it will appear in the source list in iTunes.
  • 4. Select your iPod in the source list and you will see information about it appear in the Summary tab of the main iTunes windows.
  • 5. Click the Restore button. You will be prompted with one or more restore options that may prompt iTunes to automatically download of the latest iPod Software. The 4 possible restore options are:
    • Restore Option 1: Restore - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod.
    • Restore Option 2: Use Same Version - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod even though a newer version is available.
    • Restore Option 3: Use Newest Version - Restores with the latest iPod Software on your computer.
    • Restore Option 4: Restore and Update - Restores with the latest iPod Software on your computer.
  • 6. A progress bar will appear on the computer screen indicating that the first stage of the restore process has started. When this stage is completed, iTunes will instruct you to leave iPod connected to your computer to complete restore.
  • 7. During the stage 2 of the restore process, the iPod will show an Apple logo as well as a progress bar at the bottom of the display. It is critical that the iPod remains connected to the computer or iPod Power adapter during this stage. Note: The progress bar may be difficult to see since the backlight on the iPod display may be off.
  • 8. After stage 2 of the restore process is complete and the iPod is connected to the computer, the iTunes Setup Assistant window will appear asking you to name your iPod and choose your syncing preferences similar to when you connected your iPod for the first time.

Unlock an iPod Model A1199
Although the second generation iPod Nano (also known as 2G) uses a four-digit pass code that prevents unauthorized access to your iPod by locking the screen, you can also unlock the device by plugging it into your computer's USB 2.0 port.
When the 2G iPod Nano is connected to the computer it is synchronized, and automatically unlocks the screen according to the official Apple site.
In order to successfully unlock the Nano it must be plugged into the primary computer used for synchronizing content.

Click "Start," "All Programs" and "iTunes" on your PC's desktop, or click "iTunes" on the Macintosh's desktop dock.
Plug the iPod Nano's cable into the docking port on the iPod Nano.
Plug the other end into the USB port on the computer to open iTunes.
Click "Controls" at the top of the iTunes' menu, and select "Eject iPod."
The iPod Nano's screen will be unlocked once it is ejected from your computer.

    Unlocking my ipod nano


    There is only one way - and it will erase all your songs:

    If you lock your iPod nano screen and can’t unlock it
    Normally, if you can connect your iPod nano to the computer it is authorized to work
    with, your iPod nano automatically unlocks. If the computer authorized to work with
    your iPod nano is unavailable, you can connect iPod nano to another computer and
    use iPod Updater to restore your iPod software. See the next section for more
    information.
    If you want to change the screen lock combination and you can’t remember the
    current combination, you must restore the iPod software, and then set a new
    combination.
    Updating and Restoring iPod Software
    You can use iPod Updater to update or restore your iPod software. Apple periodically
    updates iPod software to improve performance or add features. It is recommended that
    you update your iPod nano to use the latest software. You can also restore the software,
    which puts iPod nano back in its original state.
    â If you choose to update, the software is updated, but your settings and songs are not
    affected.
    â If you choose to restore, all data is erased from your iPod nano, including songs, files,
    contacts, photos, calendar information, and any other data. All iPod nano settings are
    restored to their original state.
    To update or restore iPod nano with the latest software:
    1 Go to www.apple.com/support/ipod and download the latest iPod Update. The update
    has the latest software for all models of iPod.
    2 Double-click the software installation file and follow the onscreen instructions to install
    the iPod update.
    3 Connect iPod nano to your computer and open iTunes. The iPod Updater application
    opens.
    If you’re using a Windows PC and the iPod Updater application doesn’t open
    automatically, you can find the updater by choosing Start > All Programs > iPod.
    4 Follow the onscreen instructions to update or restore iPod software.
    If you use the iPod Updater application and it doesn’t recognize that iPod nano is
    connected to your computer, reset iPod nano (see page 45).
    If you want to restore iPod software and you don’t have an Internet connection, you
    can use the iPod Updater application that was installed on your computer when you
    installed the software from the iPod CD.
