    I don't know the answer but I think some clarification may help whoever does.

    Are you sure this happens ONLY with iPods? Exactly 30 minutes?

    Or is it random and independent of the source?

    Stops playing but otherwise seems normal and powered on? Or stops dead?

I don't like to add the " I have the same problem too" comment but I am in need of a solution to this problem as well ... I can confirm that it does not shut off on any other source only the iPod ... When my iPod is in my Bose dock it never shuts off after 30 min ... I too checked to see if there is a sleep function within the panasonic but nothing there that would indicate a sleep mode or a inactive shut down I mostly use my iPod for pandora I have not tried it to see if it will do the same for music store on my iPod

How do i turn ipod off and on

Depends on the model iPod nano but no off button only sleep! But either goes to sleep after a few minutes of inactivity! Press and hold play/pause for a few seconds to force sleep! If not being used slide hold on, to stop it coming on!

How to shutoff ipod a1236

Turn off your iPod by holding down the "Play/Pause" button for two or three seconds. The screen should go blank, and your iPod will remain off until you turn it back on again by holding down the "Play/Pause" button.2 Let your iPod go to sleep. When an iPod isn't used for two or three minutes, it automatically goes into "sleep" mode. The screen will go black until you touch any of the controls. Sleep mode uses considerably less battery power.

    Can't play iPod on my panasonic sa-en27 with out a remote

    I ran into the same issue, instead of buying a replacement remote I was able to dial in a Vip 211 dish network remote control with remote code 643 in AUX setting. Then once the code was in, i pressed the 6 key on the remote and now I can listen to audio on the music port. The 643 code refers to the first Panasonic amplifier/receiver in the code list. To further clarify, I pressed AUX for 4 seconds, pressed 2 to signal I am programming an amplifier/receiver device, then punched in 643 then pound sign.
    Good luck with yours.

    Off and on

    The following text is from:
    Turning off the iPod nano How do I turn off the iPod nano then, you may be asking? You let it, or make it, go to sleep.
    The iPod doesn’t really work in terms of on and off. Instead it only deals in awake or asleep.
    If you use your iPod for a minute or two and then set it aside, you’ll see its screen start to dim, and then eventually go black altogether. This is the iPod going to sleep. When an iPod is asleep, it uses much less battery power than when the screen is lit up and the music playing. By letting your iPod sleep you conserve your batteries for later.
    You can also force it to go to sleep by holding down the play/pause button for a few seconds.
    Keeping Your iPod Asleep If you press any button on your nano when it is asleep, the screen will light up quickly and your iPod will be awake and ready to rock.
    If you plan not to use your iPod for a while and want to store it, you can make sure that you conserve battery power and keep your iPod from playing a concert to the inside of your backpack by engaging the hold switch.

    Ipod first generation 5000 songs

    To reset iPod, iPod (scroll wheel), iPod (touch wheel), and iPod (dock connector)ipodg1-2.gif ipodg3.gif
    1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
    2. Press and hold the Play/Pause and Menu buttons simultaneously until the Apple/iPod logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.
    If the above steps did not work, try connecting iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep.
    If you are still unable to reset your iPod, use only one finger from one hand to press the Center (Select) button, and one finger from the other hand to press the Menu button.
    When you reset iPod all your music and files are saved, but some customized settings may be lost. Date and time is preserved (unless the iPod reset itself because it had no power and then was reconnected to power). Other customized settings, such as Bookmarks, On-The-Go Playlists, Shuffle, Backlight timer, and so forth are preserved from the last time the hard drive turned on.
