The iPod nano seems to work OK but ther hold switch quit working. I turned it off and slid the hold switch to the right to lock the iPod but that just turned it on again. Is this a hidden feature that was inadvertently turned on, or is it broken?

Did you first slide the hold switch to HOLD and then back before holding the menu and center buttons down together? That worked for my iPod nano 4th generation after it "locked up" and became non-responsive.
Hi, First find whether the Hold switch is in off hold position... ( Hold switch can be found at the botton or on the top of ipod) then try:
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 10 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.
if by the on/off thing do you mean the hold switch? If you do, make sure it's to the left. If it is to the right it disables the keys. Other than that, to turn on press any button. To turn off hold play for 3-5 seconds.
Comon problem in the 1st and 2nd Gen Nano's, the only way to fix it is to buy a new hold switch and replace it (its actually quite and easy repair (just a small screw and a ribbon cable) if your feeling brave you can buy the hold switch here (I just found it online, I don't represent the seller in any way)
you can find a ton of you tube videos on how to take the nano apart without breaking it...its really not so bad
