Make sure you have you user's manual. If you don't have it, go to Apple website.

My iPod turns on but its just a blank screen


Toggle the Hold switch on and off several times. This is necessary due to dust and "thumb crud." Then leaving the Hold switch in the On position, simultaneously depress the Center and Menu buttons for 12 seconds or more until the IPod reboots.

Ipod Nano 8GB blank grey screen


I found this solution: Push the hold button on, then off. Then, press the Menu and Center button att he same time - hold for 6 to 8 seconds. The Apple icon should appear on your screen. You might have to repeat the steps. (I had to do it twice, but it worked.)

White screen and beeps


Try This next time ....
Not all, but many 5G iPod owners have had issues with the latest iPod updates, I had this problem myself a day ago & was almost ready to send it in for a replacement, some HAVE sent theirs in. Anyways, after updating the iPod the iPod no longer works!! All you get is a blank white screen (White Screen Of Death), 3 beeping tones and you hear the hard drive click. Simply resetting the iPod will do nothing, but get you another three beeps & a click. But to resolve this issue do the following, this had worked for me as well as others...

Extended Reset
1) Move the LOCK to the "ON" position.
2) Move it back to the "OFF" position.
3) Hold the "Centre" button then hold down the "MENU" button until you hear the harddrive make the "click" noise.
4) As soon as you hear the drive "click" press and hold the "Centre" button then press & hold the Play/Pause button, you should then see the Apple Logo" like normal and it should then start up like with no problem.
