Question about Apple iPod nano 3rd Generation

2 Answers

Ipod is frozen and has a white screen

Okay, I heard you were good at solving Apple questions, so I wanted to ask you how to unfreeze my ipod. It is a third generation nano, a green one (if that even matters). Well, I was listening to it, and then tried to turn it off, but then it just went to a white light screen. It has been on this same screen for about an hour now, and the screen is still the same. I tried sliding the hold button on and off, but it will not make a difference. I tried the center button and pressed it for 8 seconds, and it still won't work. I am very worried, because this has never happened to me before. What can I do?

Unfreezing ipod otuch 2nd generation


Hi linda_wat834
When the Apple Logo is stuck
If this happens, put the iPod into Disk Mode through the diagnostic menu. Then connect the iPod to your computer and update or restore the iPod.
Sometimes you can get away with just updating the iPod, so try that first, but usually you have to restore the iPod .
As always make backups of your music files, because the restore procedure will eliminate them.

Hi there,

You just needed to reset your ipod by pressing and holding the MENU and the CENTER buttons at the same time. Wait for the apple logo to appear.

Please let me know if you are able to do this successfully. Good luck!

White screen on my silver 120gb ipod classic


The white screen on Apple Products is never really a good thing.

You've probably heard of the blue screen of death(Windows) and the red ring of death(XBox), the white screen is referred to the white screen of death, normally not something you can recover from.

But try this anyway:

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).

Don't disconnect or eject the iPod until the store is totally done. After you think it's done, wait another five minutes.

Frozen Screen I have a frozen screen which says "Disk Mode", then there is a large "tick" in the centre of the screen, and another message saying "OK to disconnect". Nothing I try unfreezes this - I have...


I do not know which ipod you have, but here are instructions on how to get a nano in and out of DISK MODE:



To turn iPod Disk mode off:
  1. Toggle the hold switch on and off
  2. Press and Hold the Select and the Menu button for more than ten seconds
  3. The normal selection screen should appear, your iPod is out of Disk mode.
To turn iPod Disk mode on:
  1. Toggle the hold switch on and off
  2. Press and Hold the Select and the Menu button for six+ seconds
  3. Release both buttons when the Apple logo appears
  4. Press and Hold the Select and Play button until the Disk Mode text appears.
If it does not work, you may need to reset your ipod. The following link has extensive instructions on that procedure for many types of ipods.
Good luck my friend!
