Question about Apple iPod nano

1 Answer

Ipod Screen I think the magnet from my camera case was sitting against my iPod screen and now it won't turn on. The apple logo comes on halfway with a bunch of lines and then it shuts off. I was wondering how much this would cost to fix and if I should just get a new one instead?

Hey rougelac,

While some LCD screens can be replaced, it is important to keep in mind that repairs may not necessarily be the most cost-efficient option available. With some products, the cost to replace the screen may actually exceed the cost of the product itself.

If you are still within the original manufacturer's warranty, I would strongly suggest first contacting Apple directly for assistance - Apple may be able to provide you with technical support and a number of repair options. Otherwise, you may always contact an Apple-authorized repair facility (such as a local Best Buy™ store) for further assistance. Either of these parties should be able to provide you with both a detailed diagnostic, as well as repair estimates if necessary.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

The iPod is a portable music player made by Apple. As of early 2011, Apple sells four models: iPod shuffle, iPod classic, iPod nano and iPod touch. If your iPod experiences a problem such as not responding or freezing, you can reset it to see if that takes care of the problem. IPod Shuffle The iPod shuffle is the smallest iPod model, with 2GB of storage.
It has no screen and attaches to your clothing with a clip, making it well suited for exercising while listening to music.
When it doesn't respond, or if the status light is solid red, you can reset it.
Slide the three-way switch left toward the word "Off," covering the green bar. Wait 10 seconds, and then slide the switch back to reveal the green bar to turn it back on.
IPod Classic
The iPod classic has a 160GB hard drive for storing music, videos and pictures.
If it experiences a problem, you can easily reset it.
Slide the "Hold" switch to the "Hold" position and then slide it back.
Press "Menu" and the center button simultaneously on the click wheel and hold them for about six seconds, until Apple's logo appears on the screen.
IPod Nano
Apple's iPod nano has a touch-screen display and comes with 8GB or 16GB of storage, depending on the configuration.
It has a pedometer and an FM radio.
If the iPod nano doesn't respond, reset it.
Press the "Sleep/Wake" button and the "Volume Down" button simultaneously and hold them until the screen gets dark, and then wait a few more seconds until the Apple logo appears on the screen, followed by the home screen.
IPod Touch
The iPod touch has a touch-screen display, two cameras for shooting pictures and movies, and Wi-Fi for accessing the Internet. Its capacity ranges from 8GB to 64GB, depending on the configuration.
You can use the iPod touch to send email and make video calls, as well as play games and run applications. If the iPod touch freezes or otherwise isn't working, you can get it running again after resetting it.
Press the "On/Off-Sleep/Wake" button and the "Home" button simultaneously for at least 10 seconds, until Apple's logo appears on the screen.

--please help. i pod 4gb silver has white screen. does not turn off i hear 2 beeps. it stays on with white screen. What do I do?


Hi leahschecter

***White Screen of Death***
This is probably caused by not allowing the firmware update to finish the installation before disconnecting the iPod.
Try these steps.
Reset the iPod:
1.Turn the Hold switch on, then back to off.
2.Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for 10 seconds (until the Apple logo appears).
3.You may need to repeat the reset several times.
If the reset doesn't help, then put the iPod into forced disk mode.
Put iPod into Disk Mode:
Apple suggests that you ensure your iPod is charged before following
the next step. How exactly you check a charge on an iPod screen that
is completely white has yet to be revealed. But hey, give it a shot
anyway. Plug the iPod into a high-powered USB port, let it sit for 2 hours, then disconnect it. If you have a wall charger, plug in the iPod, then follow these steps while it is still plugged in.
1.Turn the Hold switch on, then back to off.
2.Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons until the Apple logo appears
3.Immediately switch your figures to press and hold the Select and the Play/Pause buttons until "Disk Mode" appears at the top.
For a lot of people, this solves the problem. Connect the iPod to the computer and (assuming it shows up) reset the iPod again to get it out of Disk Mode.
If at this point you still have the white screen,
restore the iPod using the restore function in iTunes under the Summary tab (this will erase everything on the iPod and put it at factory
settings).
Don't disconnect or eject the iPod until the store is totally done.
After you think it's done, wait another five minutes.

My ipod it showing a message that of : connected


If your ipod is frozen on the screen with this message then you might have disconnected your ipod from computer while it was either syncing or playing.
Anyways, make sure your ipod is not connected with the computer and on the ipod, press and hold the middle and menu button together until you see an apple logo on the ipod's screen.
Let go the buttons when the apple logo appears on the screen. That step reset your ipod and in most cases that fix the issue.
In case you still have the same problem even after that step, then call AppleCare at 1800-275-2273
Hope that answers your question

Ipod won't turn on screen is black


May be the battery id dead.
Connect your ipod to computer and press and hold the middle and menu button together until you get an apple logo on the screen.
Let go the buttons as soon as apple logo appears on the screen. In most of the cases, that fix the issue.
In case you wont get apple logo on the screen, then it's a hardware problem. Call AppleCare at 1800-275-2273 in that case

White screen on my silver 120gb ipod classic


The white screen on Apple Products is never really a good thing.

You've probably heard of the blue screen of death(Windows) and the red ring of death(XBox), the white screen is referred to the white screen of death, normally not something you can recover from.

But try this anyway:

Reset the iPod:
  1. Turn the Hold switch on, then back to off.
  2. Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for 10 seconds (until the Apple logo appears).
  3. You may need to repeat the reset several times.
If the reset doesn't help, then put the iPod into forced disk mode.
