Refer to your manual for the details - A simple reset will probably work. Running Mp3 players on low batt can cause all sorts of goofiness.

Remember these five basic suggestions if you have a problem with your iPod nano. If
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.

Its frozen and the buttoms are not working


Please wait for your ipod to discharge all the power it has.it might even take 2-3 days to discharge the power Then after the ipod is completely empty (which means its off and needs to be charged) you can connect it to your computer. Please make sure your computer is scanned from viruses. You can also scan your ipod from viruses. Never unplug your ipod before it completes synchronizing. You dont need to worry! its normal for ipods to behave that ways :)

You need to reset your ipod. Flip the hold switch on then off, then press select button and menu button at same time. Hold for 10 seconds or so. Ipod should shut off and reboot to apple screen. If this doesn't work first time try again. This should solve any stuck screen problems. Mine was stuck on pioneer screen and this operation fixed it.

Don't respond to them. It isn't legitimate. There selling something and I wish they would cancel his account.

It could be the battery. Do you have an Apple store nearby. You might want to have him look at it. They will do that for no charge.

Best Buy can look at them as well if you don't want to go back to Apple.

First make sure your hold switch isn't on. It's on the top or bottom and slides back and forth. It needs to be switched to the left. Once it is to the left, here's how you reset:

You can reset your ipod by holding down the menu and select (round button in the center) buttons down for at least 10 seconds. You'll see an apple logo flash, that's when you stop pressing the buttons. It will shut off, then back on.

switch the hold button on and off, then hold horizontally, and push the menu button and center button at the same time. hold them down untill the ipod restarts and the apple logo apears. If that doesen't work, plug into the newest itunes program, and push restore.
