iPod Symbol Meanings
The Apple iPod personal media player uses a set of symbols to communicate what's happening to the device: when it needs to be recharged or when it's experiencing problems.
Sometimes it's not obvious what these symbols mean; problems with your iPod may cause conflicting or confusing icons to be displayed.
Folder with an Exclamation Point

This suggests that your iPod can't read data stored on it.
Your iPod may simply not have enough charge in its battery to read its hard drive.
If recharging it doesn't help, you can try connecting it to your computer, then updating it with the latest version of the iPod's software.
If none of this works, you may have a dead hard drive; your iPod will need to be repaired.
Battery with an Exclamation Point
A battery with an exclamation point usually just means that your iPod needs to recharge.
Once the battery has charged up again, everything should be fine.
You can charge an iPod through a FireWire connection to a computer, but not if the computer is in sleep mode or switched off.
Third-generation iPods cannot be charged via USB 2; later iPod models can, however.
If you are having problems charging your iPod, try switching cables.
You can also try resetting the iPod by pressing Play and Select together (Menu and Play on earlier models).
If none of these methods help, your battery may need to be replaced.
Empty Battery
If the battery icon shows an empty battery, this means that your iPod is almost out of charge and needs to power up.
If you know that the iPod has been charging for a while, and the battery icon is still empty, you may need to update its software.
Older software can lead to a confused battery readout.
Wall Plug with Power Adapter
This means that your iPod needs to be plugged into an electricity supply while it updates its firmware.
You won't be able to do anything else with it until you do this.
Frowning IPod Icon with an Exclamation Point
A picture of an iPod with a sad face and x-ed out eyes plus an exclamation point indicates a very serious problem with the device.
In some cases, draining the battery completely then recharging and resetting the iPod can offer a short term solution, buying you enough time to back up your iPod's data.
The underlying problem will remain and is likely to get worse until your iPod is repaired.
Apple Logo
A brief appearance by the Apple logo when the iPod is reset or switched on is normal and nothing to worry about.
If the logo does not go away and the iPod doesn't boot up, there is a problem.
You can often resolve this by putting the ipod in Disk Mode and then restoring or updating its software; note that you will lose all data stored on the iPod if you do this.
If this doesn't work, your iPod needs specialist attention.
Do Not Disconnect
It is not safe to unplug your iPod when you see this icon. Wait till it goes away, then you can safely disconnect your iPod.
Spinning Disk Icons
The spinning disk and magnifying glass icon means that the iPod is performing a disk scan.
If you don't want to perform a scan right now you can re-set the iPod; you'll see a disk with a cross when you stop the scan.
If you would rather let the scan complete, you should connect the iPod to a power source as scanning drains the battery.
If the scan finds issues but can fix them, you'll see a disk plus an arrow.
If everything is alright, you'll see a disk plus a checkmark.
If there is a problem that the scan disk function could not fix, you'll see a disk plus an exclamation point.

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.

Thank you for using Fixya!

Try resetting it. Hold down the middle and menu buttons at the same time and it should reset itself. Then it should go to the main menu. Good Luck!

The screen turns on and goes white. it wont power off but it hooks up to itunes and i can put music on it but i can see anything but a white screen? what do i do??!!!


This is probably caused by not allowing the firmware update to finish
the installation before disconnecting the iPod.
Try these steps.
Reset the iPod:
1.Turn the Hold switch on, then back to off.
2.Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for 10 seconds (until the
Apple logo appears).
3.You may need to repeat the reset several times.
If the reset doesn't help, then put the iPod into forced disk mode.
Put iPod into Disk Mode:
Apple suggests that you ensure your iPod is charged before following
the next step. How exactly you check a charge on an iPod screen that
is completely white has yet to be revealed. But hey, give it a shot
anyway. 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.
1.Turn the Hold switch on, then back to off.
2.Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons until the Apple logo
appears
3.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).

I hope this helps
