How to Fix a Frozen IPod Nano

iPod Nanos will sometimes freeze up, sticking on one screen or not even turning on at all. If your nano is locking up, there are a few things you can try to get it working again.

1. Turn off the hold button. First of all, make sure that that wasn't the problem--don't worry, we've all done dumber stuff.


2. Cold boot. Assuming that wasn't the problem, flick the hold button on and off a few times, and then make sure it's off. Hold down the Menu button and the middle button button for about 15 seconds; this should reset the iPod nano, which may fix the issue. Make sure that the iPod nano is fully charged before attempting this.

3. Recharge. If that didn't work at all, try plugging the iPod nano into the USB port of a computer, using the adapter that came with it. Be sure to plug directly into the computer, and not through a USB hub. The USB needs to provide adequate power for the iPod nano to function, and it may be unable to do so through a hub. The iPod nano should be recognized by the computer; once it is, you simply need to safely disconnect it in iTunes, and it should be functional. If it doesn't show up on the computer at all, give it about 20 minutes, leaving the iPod nano connected to the computer, as the nano may be under-charged, which requires a few minutes to re-charge. If it's still not working, try plugging the iPod nano into a different computer.

4. Try again. If the Menu + Middle Button fix seemed to work, but just cycled the nano back to one of its starting screens (including the "do not disconnect" or the "loading Apple logo" screen), try that fix again. If it still doesn't work, try to charge it for a while, and then try it once more.

My ipod has a blank white screen how do i fix it


if your ipod is within a year of purchase it's still under warranty. return it to apple and they will replace it.
or if it is within 30 days return it to the retailer and take your receipt and they may just give you a new one.
It sounds like the LCD went bad, it happens and apple is aware of these issues so try and get it replaced.
If you don't want to do the warranty thing, go onto ebay and buy a screen for it and do a search on youtube for a "take apart" video for your model.

Good luck

I have an Apple Nano 2GB black classic (silver back and sides with black front and square edges). The screen just started partially blanking out - not black but no image through the lower 2/3rds of the...


Well if the screen is not cracked and there is no black on the screen when the ipod is off then the pixels in the screen died. Easily solved, buy a new screen on ebay, I had to replace my ipod nano screen(clasic) because it was cracked, so this should work for you.

My iPod's screen is white


I have had this problem recently myself and would like you to know that it is possible to fix. The white screen error or otherwise known as "white screen of death" is caused by the lcd color screen on the ipod itself. That is why its functions still work but the screen does not. Once you replace the color screen it will be as good as new.

Nano goes blank


Reboot your Ipod by holding down on the center button while holding down on the menu button.

This should reboot your IPod.

If that doesn't work plug your Ipod into Itunes and restore your software back to factory settings. Make sure that battery if fully charged as well.

Your ipod might need to be repaired, the apple service assistant is on the bottom.

Might be a loose connection or other failing component I don't think there is no quick fix for this.

If the problem is solved dont forget to rate as fixya otherwise there is no need to rate it. As there is noting else we could do about it.

Greetings,
There is no way to update your old Nano to play video. There is no video processing chip, and the screen is not of a high enough resolution. My second generation ipod with a black and white screen also shows the option for music videos, its just due to the iTunes software.
Take Care
