Ipod will not display track and artist name when i play a song

ipod will not display track and artist name when i play a song... i cant see the the volume display to adjust it eiether. Everyting shows up in the menus just not on the now playing screen.... any suggestions?

Try restoring your iPod. Just be aware that restoring will erase the hard drive, reload the software and put it back to default settings. Once the restore is complete follow the on screen instructions and it should connect to iTunes and give you a prompt to automatically update your library onto the fresh installation. If you want to update manually or using selected playlists choose no and it will default to manual mode and you can choose whatever setting you like: Restoring iPod to factory settings with iTunes 7

    Quit the messages app and reset your phone.
    Go to the Home screen and double click the Home button. That will reveal the row of recently used apps at the bottom of the screen. Tap and hold on the app in question until it jiggles and displays a minus sign. Tap the minus sign to actually quit the app. Then tap anywhere on the screen above that bottom row to return the screen to normal. Then restart the app and see if it works normally. Then reset your device. Press and hold the Home and Sleep buttons simultaneously ignoring the red slider should one appear until the Apple logo appears. Let go of the buttons and let the device restart.
    After the phone restarts go into Messages and delete the thread containing the problem message.

  • TS1363 My ipod will not turn on at all.  When I connect it to the laptop by the USB, it does not recognize it at all.  What could possibly be the problem?  The Nano was working like 30 minutes ago.

    About 30 minutes ago, I was adding some music to the ipod Nano.  Everything was working fine.  Now, the ipod will not turn on at all.  When I connect it to the laptop with the USB, the computer does not even recognize it.  The screen has a fant image of the plug on it and it says connected.  I followed the procedures for disconnecting it when I was finished with it earlier.  Any idea what is going on here???
    Thanks

    It probably needs to be reset. The procedure is different for different Nano models: http://www.apple.com/support/ipodnano/assistant/itunes/

  • My iPhone 4s will not display my saved contact names anymore. What to do?

    All of a sudden, my iPhone 4s will not display any of my saved contacts names or pictures.  It only shows the number.  However, it will show my facebook contacts names and info.  I currently have iOS 7.1.1.  I I've tried turning my phone off and them back on and still nothing.  How do I get it to show my contacts again?

  • HT1853 My laptop lost connection with itunes while my ipod was in do not disconnect mode.  My ipod will not respond now and still shows do not disconnect?

    My ipod was connected to my laptop and in the 'Do not Disconnect' mode.  My computer rebooted after security scan and now my iPod is stuck in the 'Do not Disconnect' mode.  The iPod will not turn off, nor will my itunes recognize it is connect.

    Try a hard reset of the iPod.  To do this, press and hold both the Select/Center and Menu buttons together long enough for the Apple logo to appear.

  • My daughters ipod will not turn off and it is frozen on the apple icon screen. Tried to update software, didn't work. Tried to restore, didn't work. Anybody know what to do next?

    My daughters ipod touch will not turn off and is frozen on the Apple icon screen. Tried to update software, didn't work. Tried to restore, didn't work. Does anybody know what else to try?

    Try:
    - iOS: Not responding or does not turn on
    - Also try DFU mode after try recovery mode
    How to put iPod touch / iPhone into DFU mode « Karthik's scribblings
    - If not successful and you can't fully turn the iOS device fully off, let the battery fully drain. After charging for an least an hour try the above again.
    - If still not successful that usually indicates a hardware problem and an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store is in order.

  • My iPod will not make sounds. It says it is playing but it doesn't. What should I do?

    My iPod will not make sounds. It says it is pplaying but it dpesn't play the music. What I mean by that is the bar to tell you how far you are in the song and how much longer you have of the song is moving but no sound is coming out. What should I do?

    What kind of iPod is this?  Have you tried a different set of headphones to see if that makes any difference?
    If no luck there, work through the usual 5 R's of troubleshooting to help eliminate any possibility of a corrupted software or data on the device.

  • De-cluttering tip: Is there a way to prevent a track from showing up under "Artist" while still being able to view the artist info when I play the song by Album?

    I asked this question here:
    https://discussions.apple.com/message/15312099#15312099
    It was suggested I re-post in this forum, seeing as the problem may be specific to the Touch.
    So, I have lots of "compilation" albums that include songs by various artists (for example, Pitchfork's top 500 singles of the decade). I usually select my music by "Artist," and now my ipod is super cluttered, because now I have hundreds and hundreds of artists listed, many of which I only have one or two songs by from this compilation.
    One solution: simply delete the artist information for these large compilations, and then the songs from the compilations will no longer show up under "Artists." Problem is, I would like to know who the artists are when I play the compilation (I simply don't want to have the artists listed under "Artists")
    Another solution: I could manually delete the artist info, but paste that info on to the song name. For example, a track that once looked like:
    Artist: Nirvana
    Title: Smells Like Teen Spirit
    Album: Best of the '90s
    After my editing, would look like:
    Artist: [blank]
    Title: Nirvana - Smells Like Teen Spirit
    Album: Best of the '90s
    This would solve my problem...but it would literally take hours to do for each and every individual song. Not practical.
    Does any one have any other suggestions? It seems like there would be a way to just check a box for what info you want to be listed (ie, I could un-check "Artist," and then the song would no longer be listed by Artist, even though the Artist information would still be retained for reference). Does this option exist?
    In the prior thread, someone suggested I mark it as a "compilation" in iTunes. But that did not prevent the individual artists from being listed under "Artists." Someone suggested that I may need to turn "Compilation" to "On" on my iPod. But that does not seem to be an option on the Touch.
    Suggestions?
    Thanks!!

    Why not set the iPod to show Compilations?
    In Settings select Main menu (or Music menu) and check Compilations. (You can do so for both if you desire.)
    Now all of the Artists that only appear in compilation albums won't appear in Artists.
    To get to the Artists that only appear in compilation albums open Compilations in your Main Menu or Music Menu (or either).

  • IPod Will Not Display In My Compuater unless updating and album art.

    Okay, when I plug my Ipod into my computer now it doesnt seem to immediatly recognise it. It takes a few minutes. When it does finally catch my IPod is not adding with any of my new songs the album art with it. It was also saying that ITunes Artwork file temp 2 was corrupt or something. I just want to get this problem solved before my 3 months are up cause its coming in two weeks.

    Have you Restored it?
    just want to get this problem solved before my 3 months are up cause its coming in two weeks.
    The iPod comes with a one year warranty.
    You get one telephone support issue in the 90 days (meaning you ca call that one issue within the 90 days) and get it solved.
    You have one year in which to have it repaired/replaced under waranty.
    You can post here forever.

  • Please help. ipod will not show up and i have tried everything

    i got my ipod two days ago. ipod nano 4gb.
    when i plug it into my computer it comes up with 'do not disconnect' and occasionally a small circle icon in the top left-hand corner. the computer recognises that there is a 'mass storage device' connected, but the ipod doesnt appear in itunes or my computer.
    when i unplug the ipod it displays the apple symbol and then goes to the language selection menu. after i disconnect it i also get a message saying that the file could not be saved to the drive because it was interrupeted or something like that and i should try storing it somewhere else.
    so thinking that maybe this was it being updated, i let it plugged in all day while i was at school because surely that would be plenty of time for anything to load onto it. But when i got home today it did the same thing.
    I have two computers and the same thing happens on both.
    I have tried it using my sisters usb cable, still nothing works.
    Any ideas? Oh on one of my computers it doesnt let me uninstall itunes as well.
    And when I try to open the updater to restore the ipod it freezes the application and i have to do controlaltdelete and close it.
    I am SO angry about it right now.
    Since i only bought it a few days ago do you think i could get a repleacement from the store where i got it or will i have to go all the way through apple.
    I havnt been able to use it once and it is making me very frustrated, please help me if you have any ideas.

    Sally,
    OK since you using 2 computers, we will first focus on the one that will not uninstall iTunes, afterwareds we will get the ipod working on one PC first.
    On the PC that will not uninstall iTUnes, goto control panel>add and remove and try if you can to uninstall iTUnes AND quicktime. Then go here and roll down to "Clean up iTunes installer files on the computer" http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=93976
    Once done disable any antivirus or security programs, then goto apple.com to download and install the latest iTUnes.
    Also on BOTH pcs make sure you have "ipod updater 06-28-2006" you can download and install it here http://www.apple.com/ipod/download/
    Once iTunes is properly installed on this PC, you need to only connect your nano to the main PC you use for now so we can get it working, then we'll focus on the other PC if needed

  • My iPOD will not display visual during Video Playback - only Audio.  Help!

    My movies and TV shows are successfully downloaded from iTUNES and successfully synched to my iPOD, however, when I attempt to playback on my iPOD, I can only hear the content and not see it. The only thing I see is the movie album cover and the name of the movie and that is all. Any suggestions are appreciated.
    thanks.

    On the menu of your iPod go to Videos> Video Settings> and turn TV Out to off. Hopefully this will help.

  • My ipod will not turn on and will not show up on my itunes

    I've never had any issues with my iPod touch before and used it frequently. I quit using it for a couple of months and it wouldn't turn on. I left it plugged in for almost a whole day, and nothing changed. I tried resetting the iPod but hitting the home and power button until the apple logo appeared, and still nothing. I tried plugging my iPod into my Mac to restore it on itunes, and itunes will not even recognize the device. Please help!
