Question about Apple Ipod Nano Second Gen. Green (4 GB) MA487LLA MP3 Player

1 Answer

Iopd wheel not responding

Ipod nano is stuck on chose language. followed all the 5 Rs. tried holding all buttons at once nothing. It is fully charged.    Shortly after updating my 2nd generation 4GB iPod Nano with the 1.3.1 software, I noticed that I couldn't use the iPod wheel. I can hook up devices via the charging port (e.g., in my car) to hear the music, but I can't use ear buds via the aux port because the wheel doesn't work to press play. I tried to reset it via the menu and select button - no luck because the wheel isn't responding. I toggled the hold switch a couple times - no luck. I restored it through the computer to it's original factory settings, and it still won't work (and now it's stuck at the language screen). And of course my warranty ran out about 6 months ago. Has anyone contacted Apple about this since there are so many of us? Or anyone else come up with a solution besides taking iPods apart?

SOURCE: Only the left ear bud has sound

Hey NoRightSound,

If your earbud headphones function normally with other devices, there are a number of reasons why this problem may be occurring, including faulty connections within the iPod itself or a potentially defective headphone jack. While both of these issues can typically be resolved fairly easily, I would first suggest contacting your local Apple-authorized service center for a complete diagnostic to pinpoint the exact cause of the problem.

Remember that if your iPod is still under the original manufacturer's warranty, you can always call Apple directly for technical support over the phone in addition to working with a technician in your area.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

SOURCE: iopd wheel not responding

I have the same problem and since mine was out of warranty, I decided to try and fix it. I ordered a new ipod nano wheel from ebay for roughly 15 dollars. Search youtube for how to open your nano, which is pretty straightforward. Not as difficult as I thought actually. You can then remove the wheel circuit pad and replace it. It peels right off of the plastic part of the wheel and the metal back part also peels off. They used some sort of sticky back tape, which sounds bad when you try to take it off, but reallty not all that bad. Mine is Gen1, so yours maybe different, just be sure to search fro the right model.

Ipod nano click wheel is frozen. followed all the standard steps on apple support site and still no good. stuck frozen on ''choose language'' and click wheel does not respond


First make sure the lock is not on. Second, I have read in a number of threads people have tried putting scotch tape over the wheel and it started working. I know it sounds crazy but it's worth a try. Otherwise I would say you have a hardware issue and should contact Apple if it is still under warranty.

Ipod not responding


You may be doing the reset wrong. 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 you!

You have to reset your iPod. (Note: This is for the 3rd generation iPod Nano)

To reset iPod nano:
1 Toggle the Hold switch on and off (slide it to HOLD and then back again).
2 Press and hold the Menu and Center buttons for at least 6 seconds, until the Apple logo appears.


If iPod nano won’t turn on or respond

- Make sure the Hold switch isn’t set to HOLD.
- The iPod nano battery might need to be recharged. Connect iPod nano to your computer or to an Apple USB Power Adapter and let the battery recharge. Look for the lightning bolt icon on the iPod nano screen to verify that iPod nano is receiving a charge.

Ipod always on hold


My 2 GB nano shows the lock icon no matter how many times I toggle the hold switch on and off and press the Menu/Select buttons. I've recharged and restored it any number of times with no luck. Computer recognizes it when I plug it in but once I unplug it, none of the buttons work. When it's plugged in and fully updated, it shows the languages menu. I'll be eternally grateful to anyone who can offer any assistance!
