Question about Apple iPod MP3 Player
I put my ipod on hold and then i went to take it off of hold, but no matter what direction the hold button is in, it's still on hold. when i hook it up to the computer it turns on so its charged i know. how do i fix that?
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)

Tips for a great answer:
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
