Ipod nano 3rd gen has frozen and wont do anything ...help!

Make sure your iPod is not on hold by sliding it on then off again.
Hold the Menu and Center button until you see the Apple logo on your screen and it should restart and come on back to normal.
tip

IPod Nano/Video/Touch Resetting

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.

  1. Before placing the iPod into disk mode, you should verify that it is charged.
  2. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Set it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
  3. Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for at least 6 seconds until the Apple logo appears.
  4. 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. zero77cool.jpg
  5. 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.

My fourth gen ipod nano still plays music but the display screen does not work. The screen is grey. I tried to charge it and still nothing happens.

If you hold the middle button with the menu button for roughly 20 seconds the Apple logo will show and the device will reboot. Wait for it to reboot and it should be ok.
If this doesn't not resolve the problem it could be possible that the screen is damaged in some way.

My ipod nano 2nd gen's screen won't display anything..

I have had this problem recently myself and would like you to know that it is possible to fix. The white screen error or otherwise known as "white screen of death" is caused by the lcd color screen on the ipod itself. That is why its functions still work but the screen does not. Once you replace the color screen it will be as good as new.
