Press and hold the center button while holding down the menu button. This will reboot the Ipod.

I have forgot my screen lock password? how can i unlock this code.


Try plugging it into the computer you usually use it with and open iTunes.
Then, after you disconnect the iPod from the computer, it won't be locked anymore. Then you should be able to reset your screen lock password.

If that does not work, then you'll need to restore your iPod. This will delete all the files on the nano, so you'll need to resync it from your computer afterwards.
You can restore the iPod by connecting it to your computer, opening iTunes, clicking on the name of your iPod, then click on "Restore".

There's more info about restoring your iPod here.


Hope this helps!

My Ipod is locked and my son forgot the code. How do I unlock it? It's an ipod nano A1236 and i have already tried a lot of codes and it dosen't work.


If you forgot your passcode for your Nano, then you will have to do a restore on your Nano which you'll have to do via iTunes; which will erase all data on your Nano, and restore all settings to factory default.
There is no other way to recover your passcode if you forgot it.
Once you run a recovery via iTunes you can re-add your music, etc.

Forget lock screen code


If it is just locked, you can slide the Hold/Lock switch away from its current position.

If it is asking for an actual password, try 1,1,1,1

If that fails, you will have to open iTunes and Restore your player - it wil lerase all songs, but it will reset the password.

How to unlock my ipod


Hook the iPod up to the computer you set it up on and open iTunes. When you disconnect it it should be unlocked. If you are not using the original computer that you set it up with, you may need to do a restore within iTunes.

I forgot my password


Hello stix_2090,

If you locked your iPod and forgot the password you can unlock it using iTunes. Simply connect the iPod to the primary computer you use for adding music to the player, start the iTunes software and synch the player. The iPod will be unlocked and you can then use it normally.

Best Regards,
Ken

Ipod nano lock forgot password


First, try to restore using iTunes. If this doesn't work, place your iPod in disk mode (hold the menu and center buttons down togther) and as soon as you see the Apple symbol come up hold the center and play (bottom) buttons down together until you see a check mark (disk mode). It may take a few trys.

Now connect your iPod to your computer. Go to my computer and right click the drive associate with your iPod (for example F: ) and scroll down to FORMAT. THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT - CHOOSE FAT32 and then check the "Quick Format" box. After you do this then use iTunes to Restore your iPods another time.
