The Ipod nano hold switch will not unlock the Ipod. The lock icon is showing even when the hold botton is switched to the off position. The screen is lite and the display is stuck. The wheel will operate anything or turn off the Ipod.

    Its worth a try.

How do i fix my ipod


Toggle the "Hold" switch to the "On" position, then "Off." The "Hold" switch is the small sliding switch on the top of the iPod. Move it to the "On" position to show an orange rectangle.

My ipod nano keeps frezzing how can you solve the problem?


Hello :

1: First make sure that your iPod’s hold button isn’t on. This is the little switch at the top left corner of the iPod video that you can move to “lock” the iPod’s buttons. If this is on, you’ll see a little orange area at the top of the iPod nano and a lock icon on the iPod’s screen. If you see either of these, move the switch back and see if this fixes the problem.
If the hold switch wasn’t the problem do the following :

2: Move the hold switch to the on position and then move it back to off .

3: Hold down the Menu button on the clickwheel and the center button at the same time. Hold these together for 6-10 seconds. This should restart the iPod nano. You’ll know the iPod is restarting when the screen changes and the Apple logo appears.

4: If this doesn’t work at first, you should repeat the steps .

5: If this doesn’t work, you should try plugging your iPod into a power source and let it charge. Then repeat the steps.

If that didn't help , then you should take your NANO to the service .

good luck .

please rate !

Apple ipod nano wont play the full song


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.
