--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.

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

2nd option (Disk Mode):
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.
Turn the Hold switch on, then back to off.
Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons until the Apple logo appears
Immediately switch your figures to press and hold the Select and the Play/Pause buttons until "Disk Mode" appears at the top.

The screen on my ipod is white, and no matter how many combinations of buttons i press, it does not want to change back. It seems as if it is frozen.

Ipod nano 4gb won't work


Hi!

To return it to its normal operating state, you will have to reset iPod.

1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
2. Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.

Hope I could help you.

Ipod nano video 4gb will not work unless plugged into power source


if you just bought ist automatically set on off if you hold the play button and the hold button is on off is should turn on. otherwise you can try resetting it by flipping the hol switch from on to off then holding the menu and center button for 5 secons. If that doesn't work you should send it back to Apple for repairs or replacement

Ipod always on hold


My 2 GB nano shows the lock icon no matter how many times I toggle the hold switch on and off and press the Menu/Select buttons. I've recharged and restored it any number of times with no luck. Computer recognizes it when I plug it in but once I unplug it, none of the buttons work. When it's plugged in and fully updated, it shows the languages menu. I'll be eternally grateful to anyone who can offer any assistance!
