Question about MP3 & Digital Media Players

1 Answer

My iPod Nano was working properly earlier today. But when I attempted to turn it on just now it wouldn't turn on. No music, screen, nothing. It wasn't low on battery either. And when I tried to plug it into the computer and into the docking station, still it didn't come on like it usually does. Do you know what's wrong?

    I don't know how- My iPod won't turn on for the computer, so the iTunes program doesn't know it's plugged in.

The backlight on my ipod nano has stopped, plays music ok but cannot see screen properly, I have tried looked at the memu and turned it too full brightness but still nothing


If you jailbroke it, try restoring it with itunes. If not, it may be one of two things. One your screen could be damaged, or two the LED light has burnt out. You can send it in to get repaired or try reformatting and a hard reset. Hold Menu and select. This might make it work possibly if it's a bug. But most likley a screen problem. I would check online for iPod screen

Downloaded music onto ipod, but nothing now showing on ipod screen, no folders, no music, did i unplug ipod to quick, how do i get them back


You must be using iTunes to put Music on your iPod. If you are not, the files will not show up on it. If this isn't the problem then try restoring your iPod. Plug in your iPod, open iTunes, and click the iPod Nano icon, then click restore. This will take a few minutes.
Sorry that's all I got for you, if none of this works than I would say your problem is very unique.

I have an ipod nano 4/it is locked out and i cannot remember my


Connect your iPod to the computer that your iPod is registered to (usually the one you have transfered music files from to your iPod). When your iPod is showing in the browser field in iTunes, disconnect your iPod according to proper way (different for PC and Mac).
Your iPod should now be unlocked.
Of course you must have iTunes opened on your computer, by default it opens automatically when you connect your iPod, but you might have altered the setting earlier.

Try the Five R's suggested by your user's manual - you can get the manual from Apple's website if you have lost it:

one of the following doesn’t help, read on for solutions to specific problems.
â Reset your iPod nano. See “General Suggestions,” below.
â Retry with a different USB port if you cannot see iPod nano in iTunes.
â Restart your computer and make sure you have the latest software updates
installed.
â Reinstall iPod and iTunes software from the latest versions on the web.
â Restore your iPod nano. See “Updating and Restoring iPod Software” on page whatever.

Transfer of music on Computer to 4GB MP3


make sure you disconect the ipod properly from the computer by clicking the little eject button down the right hand side of the screen. the ipod has to finalise the music onto there before being discomected. other wise, nothing goes on there. if this does not work, go and replace it from the same shop you brought it from
