  1. Likewise, Googled this page and it worked like a charm!

    Despite just trying it for the hell of it, the first step seems unecessary. I’ll trying skipping it next time the poor thing crashes.

  2. Cheers for the tip! I was just hoping for the thing to run out of battery before I could use it again… thanks a lot!

  3. i’ve tried this and it still hasn’t solved my problem. The screen stays blank. nothing happens. can u please help!
    thnx

  4. Sounds like its a bit more broken than jsut crashed smithy, all i can suggest is try plugging it into the pc/mac and letting it charge up for a while, either that or take it back to the shop and get a refund.

  5. Hey guys! Literally just got my brand new ipod, and started it up and it crashed! Much help! was about to either cry or throw it at a wall!!

  8. My Ipod Nano is not turning on. I have tried to restore it and reset it and nothing happens. first i get the apple in the window, then a screen comes on and in that screen there is a folder and http://www.apple.com/support/ipod. Then it shuts off. that sums up what the Ipod Nano is doing. How do i get it to come on??? Getting frustrated here.

When I try to turn on my Ipod Nano the apple shows up and then a screen comes on with a folder and http://www.apple.com/support/ipod. Then it shuts off AGAIN!!!!! I am getting frustrated and I just want this thing to turn on… can you help me? I have windows xp. I have my ipod +itunes disk but that does not do any good either.

  10. As the link doesnt seem to work. i’d suggest trying to flick your hold button on then off then on then off and then holding down middle button and menu button. Repeat if needed
