My nano was new, never been dropped, not a scratch on it, and working wonderfully. Then I left it in a car on a hot day and killed it, apparently. It won't turn on at all, whether it's plugged into the computer or not, or locked or unlocked... It's entirely unresponsive. What do you suppose happened? Is it all dead or only mostly dead?

Look up how to disassemble your nano on YouTube, take it apart, pry the top contact plate off the contact zone in the button assembly-where you will see miss coloration- scratch off the oxidation, assemble, enjoy ^_^
try reseting it with holding down the menu and center button. Your warrenty will have been voided due to the liquid damage though so if you cant get it working with the reset your gunna need a new one.
I think your ipod is dead. This happened to me to. I was listening to it when I arrived at my destination, and I thought I turned it off and I put it in my pocket. Later that day when I went to listen to it, it wouldn't turn on at all. Aparently, it had stayed on. Hold the pause button for five to ten seconds. The apple symbol will appear on your ipod. Immeadility put it in your docking station before it goes away. Your ipod will turn on, and itwill start charging.
Hey funnydrake, Unfortunately, if the iPod doesn't turn on after being left in an "extreme temperature" environment, you may need to seek assistance through a factory-authorized repair facility. When electronic devices are left exposed in vehicles on hot days, the excess heat can not only cause electrical shorts but may also damage sensitive components like the LCD screen. Many electrical shorts can be resolved by replacing internal cables or resoldering connections, but larger defects (such as damage to LCD screens) can often prove cost-prohibitive to repair. If you're unsure what to do next, I would strongly suggest contacting Apple's toll-free hotline (800-275-2273) for more information. Most manufacturers are able to give consumers a good idea of what is covered by their factory warranty, and provide repair estimates if necessary. Hope this helps you out. Sincerely, Aaron Go Ahead.
