It sounds like your cable may be damaged or have a short in it. You should be careful because you could potentially damage your ipod. You can go to this link at the apple store to find information on a replacement. You can also have problems charging or syncing your ipod if the cable is not an original apple product, but is made by a 3rd party manufacturer

Here's two links, one for the 4th generation you said and one for the 2nd generation in the picture.
Normally I would just plug my nano into my PC and use the search function to search for mp3s and just copy them to my computer, it's a tad easier than going through iTunes. The only problem is that the file names are all gibberish and you'll have to rename them for organization; use a batch renamer like Tagscanner, it's free.

I got this ipod nano 4th generation from a friend and his accounts still on it and i cant connect it to my itunes account because of it how do i get his account off?


1. plug in the ipod and itunes will pop up and say that the ipod is registered to a different user.
2. the only option that you can and need to click it the restore ipod to factory settings.
3. do this(might take awhile to restore) and then it will be back to how it was when it was first purchased.
4. you can now register it to your name and use it as yours!

Won't turn on


Is your iPod fully charged? Sometimes the batteries become so depleted of charge that an accessory charger won't turn it on.

-Try plugging it in to your computer or a wall charger for a while, time will vary but it may turn on.

-If it is not turning on your computer will never recognize it, thus you won't be able to do a restore with iTunes.

-Try a hard restart as well this could help you.

New Ipod Nano 4th Gen 16GB has went blank and will not turn on


HI there,

worst case scenario is that a circuit has broken inside. But your ipod will be under warrenty for a year from purchase.

Otherwise, leave the ipod to charge for a long time. Just leave it connected directly to the computer USB port despite not having any change in appearance. Also, don't connect it via a usb hub or through your keyboard. You will need to plug it into your computer directly.

You can also try entering DFU mode. Here is a great step by step guide to do that. http://iphonefreakz.com/beginners-guide/howto-dfu-mode/

Then restore the ipod and update the firmware. Make sure you have the latest version of itunes installed. By checking through software update.


I hope this helps,

Nathan.

Try doing this: Toggle the hold switch and put it back in the off position. Then press and hold the center button and the menu button simultaneously for ten seconds and the apple symbol should come up on the screen. Then it should work like normal. Hope this helps!
