One day your using your iPod and all of a sudden, boom. It turns off and refuses to work or read by your computer.
You might get the apple logo, but thats where it ends. In this case, theres a few things that can probably bring you device back and kicking.iPod Nano/Video(Classic)6th Gen Nano
Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and Volume Down button simultaneously for at least eight seconds or until the Apple logo appears. You may need to repeat this step.
If the above step 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. Try resetting the iPod while it is connected to power.4th and 5th Gen Nano/Classic/Video (CLICK WHEEL VERSION)
1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
2. Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.
In case the reset does not work, the alternative is to connect the device in disk mode and restoring it.
- Before placing the iPod into disk mode, you should verify that it is charged.
- Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Set it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
- Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for at least 6 seconds until the Apple logo appears.
- When the Apple logo appears, release the Menu and Select buttons and immediately press and hold the Select and the Play/Pause buttons until the Disk Mode screen appears.
- Connect the iPod to your computer; the screen on the iPod will change and say "Do not disconnect"
This will enable a black/white display. Restore it using iTunes.
If the above doesnt work, then Im afraid its time to repair your device.
