I'm pretty shure, the hold switch is broken, and it is stuck in hold mode. Only replacement will work. (But, also, check if the plastic button doesn't fit with the switch, an then, is not switched by the plastic button)

IPods are noted for their ease and portability, which is what makes them such a popular item. No matter how wonderful an electronic item is, there may come a time when it needs to be reset, and a 4th generation iPod is no exception.


There are situations when an iPod may freeze up such as when it is disconnected from the computer without being properly ejected in iTunes first.


A reset is not as extensive as a restore, so you will not lose any data that is already on the device.


Resetting the iPod is a very simple process that takes only seconds to complete.


Make sure the "Hold" switch is in the off position.


The "Hold" switch is on the top left of your iPod casing.


Move the "Hold" switch to "On" and then immediately back to "Off."


Press and hold the round button in the center of the click wheel and at the same time press and hold the "Play" button.


Hold both buttons down for 6 to 10 seconds or until the "Apple" logo appears on the screen.


Stop holding the center button and the "Play" button. Your iPod Nano 4th generation has now been reset.


hope this helps

Mi ipod nano 5th generation bacame blanck all white the screen and does not connect to the itunes or does not resset


Welcome to Fixya

Looks like the software just hanged-up on you. Try to reset the Ipod by following the procedures below.

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.
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).
Note: Do not disconnect or eject the iPod until the store is totally done. After you think it's done, wait another five minutes.

I found this ipod touch (1st generation) but it is disabled and i cant put in a password. Every time i hook it up to itunes it says i need the password to use it what do i do to reset it?


Connect it to a computer with itunes installed. Then reset it by holding the awake and sleep button with the home button at the same time. Once it resets, hold down only the home button, until it connects to your itunes and asks you to restore the ipod.

I have had my apple ipod touch 1st gen. for a while now and i updated it off itunes, it is stuck on the blank screen with the apple in the midle with a loading bar under it, what do i do


Hold down the Power and Home buttons.

If that fails:

Hold down the Power and Home Buttons, once you get the Apple logo, let go of the power button but hold down the home button. Do this when it is connected to the computer it will put it into rescue mode.

My Ipod Screen Went White And Now It Wont Turn On, How Do I Fix It?


Try to reset it. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until either the Apple logo or battery symbol appears. If the battery symbol appears, continue to charge iPod touch until it is fully charged.

If this doesn't work, try restoring the iPod
