The problem is that the battery gets old and swells up and presses on the back of the button. I had to pop it open after watching a few youtube instructions, but the only way to get the button to stay unstuck was to leave the case slightly open at the top. When I close the case the swollen battery stops it working again. Tried removing the foam backing from the hard drive, but this did not help. It still works great now in my docking station but I would not want to take it portable with the case not properly closed.

My ipod Nano Middle button wont work. The wheel works fine, but i cant select anything with the select button. It was working 3 days ago, but now it wont work.


try resetting it by pressing the MENU and PLAY button simultaneously for a few seconds. that usually resolves common problems dealing with the clickwheel.

Ipod wont go on


Try two things, first reset it. For the iPod Touch or iPhone hold down the "Home" button and the "Sleep/Wake" button until you see the apple logo in the middle of the screen, the it should come on. For a regular iPod hold down the middle button and the "Menu" button for about 7-8 seconds. If this doesn't work then try restoring it. Plug your iPod into your computer and open up iTunes, select your iPod in the list to the left, then click the "Restore" button located right under the big picture of your iPod model. Restoring will take several minutes. Also if you have an iPhone, back up all your text messages, because they will probably be lost during the "Restore."
Hope this helps!

My ipod middle button doesnt work what can i do help


This usually happens if the membrane of the action button deteriorates and the gold plated contacts between membrane and logic board do no longer establish good contact.
There are specialized online tutorials with iPod Repair instructions that will guide you through the steps of taking it apart and cleaning the contact or replacing the button altogether otherwise you'll have to send it to any third party iPod repair service and they'll replace the membrane for you.

First make sure your hold switch isn't on. It's on the top or bottom and slides back and forth. It needs to be switched to the left. Once it is to the left, here's how you reset:

You can reset your ipod by holding down the menu and select (round button in the center) buttons down for at least 10 seconds. You'll see an apple logo flash, that's when you stop pressing the buttons. It will shut off, then back on.

Cyan cartridge


My IP4200 started doing this about a week ago it tells me I have two Cyan cartridges. I don't, cartridges are canon cartridges and were changed four months ago worked fine until now. Pressing the middle button the resume button is working eventually, so far, but I don't know for how long. Seems like a hardware problem as I deleted and reinstalled the software no difference and everything worked fine for the first four months.
