Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
Press and hold the Play/Pause and Menu buttons until the Apple/iPod logo appears, about 6 to 10 seconds. You may need to repeat this step

HOW TO UNLOK THE A1136 IPOD


click start control panel scroll to folder options tick in the box to show hidden files and holders

connect your Ipod to your computer


click start click click on you Ipod to open


then go Ipod controls device there should be a folder saying locked

right click select rename to open or delete the folder your Ipod should now be open

or you might do a factory reset

The iPod A1136 is the fifth generation iPod from Apple that uses a click wheel to scroll through your device's media library, and may occasionally lock up when you attempt to play a song or display a photo.


This error error occurs when the hard disk is unable to access the information and stalls while opening a file.


A reset of the device usually corrects the problem, as it clears the device's memory and any errors.


Check your iPod's buttons to determine if the cause is due to a hardware error before resetting the device, as the problem may be due to the iPod's hold switch.


Slide the hold switch at the top of the iPod to the right, and slide it back to the left to ensure the switch is in the off position.


Hold down the center button in the click wheel, and at the same time hold down "Menu" on the click wheel.


Continue to hold the iPod's buttons until the device's screen shuts off, turns back on and shows the Apple logo.


Plug the iPod's connector cable into the dock connector on the bottom of the iPod.

Plug the other end of the cable into your computer's USB or FireWire port to charge the iPod.


Wait at least two hours for the iPod to charge. Launch iTunes on the computer, and click "Controls" of the iTunes menu.


Click "Eject iPod" in the sub-menu to disconnect the device.

The iPod takes four hours to completely charge its battery.


hope this helps

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 Computer and iTunes does not recognize my iPod


I think what needs to happen is you need to restore.

Hold down the sleep and home buttons until you see the apple logo. As soon as that comes up, let go of the sleep button, but keep the home button held down.

A little picture saying you need to plug your iPod in iTunes should appear after a couple seconds. Let go of home and plug your iPod into the computer now.

When iTunes says you need to restore, do so. It will take some time to restore the iPod after you have given iTunes the command to do so.

Get a snack, and a drink... You might be here for a little while.
