My nano's screen is frozen and won't change no matter what I do.

My nano's screen is lit up and is as though I have just pressed the pause button. But it won't change. None of the buttons work. The hold switch doesn't change anything. Even if I plug it into my computer, the computer recognizes the USB being plugged in but iTunes doesn't pop up, nor does the screen change. It has been like this, for 3 hours now. What should I do? I bought the nano on September 25th, 2005.

    If you have done the reset and nothing appears and you are sure it still has a charge and it doesn't turn on, you may request for a replacement if it still covered by the warranty. Cheers!

  • Ipad screen has frozen and won't switch off

    My ipad has frozen on me in the middle of watching bbc iplayer and won't switch off either.  Any suggestions.

    It does not specifically address this particular issue per se. Rebooting/resetting the iPad is a basic troubleshooting tip that covers a whole multitudes of little issues in iOS devices.
    This is a screenshot of page 127 of the iOS 6 support pdf manual for the iPad.
    Here is the manual.

    http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1725?viewlocale=it_it
    If your download was interrupted on your computer
    You will be prompted to resume your download the next time you quit and reopen iTunes. You can also manually restart the download with the following steps.
    Resuming downloads from a computer
    Open iTunes.
    Choose Store > Check for Available Downloads.
    Enter your account name and password.
    Click the "Check Downloads" button.
    Click the Resume or Resume All button, or the resume arrow to resume the download.
    If you believe that the item downloaded completely but it is not appearing in the Purchased playlist, click Library on the left side of iTunes to see if the item appears there.
    If your download was interrupted on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch
    You can manually resume the download on your device with the following steps.
    Resuming downloads from an iOS device
    From the Home screen, tap the iTunes icon.
    For iPhone/iPod touch, tap More > Downloads. For iPad, tap Downloads.
    Enter your account name and password.
    Click the "OK" button.
    Click the Resume, Resume All button to start the download.
    If you cannot complete the download on your device, you can finish the download in iTunes on your computer and then sync it to your device. For instructions, see the following articles:
    iTunes Store: Where can I download and sync my purchases?
    iTunes Store: Transferring purchases from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod to a computer
    Additional Information
    If your purchase does not resume downloading after following the steps in this article, you can also try the following steps to troubleshoot the download issue.
    Restart your computer or device.
    Check for updates for your Mac or PC and install any software updates. Also, check for and install updates for any security software you may have (anti-virus, anti-malware, firewall, and so on).
    If using Wi-Fi for Internet access, try using a different Wi-Fi network when downloading. If you are connecting to a home network, try restarting your Wi-Fi router. Also, check for and install any firmware updates for your Wi-Fi router. (Refer the manufacturer's website for your router to get information on updating its firmware).
    If you are on a computer, try using an ethernet cable for wired Internet access instead of using Wi-Fi. If the issue is still unresolved and you're using iTunes for Windows, follow steps in iTunes for Windows: Troubleshooting security software issues.
    I hope this information helps ....
    Have a great day!

  • My desktop background seems to be frozen and won't change.

    I would get my desktop background from airliners.net. The background wouldn't change and I can't get photos on airliners.net

    How was the problem corrected?

  • Screen Brightness won't change no matter what I do

    Hello guys:
    For the time I've been using ArchLinux my screen brightness buttons don't work.  Also power options for adjusting screen brightness do nothing, so you see why I have a problem, my screen eats the laptop's battery... I've also tried adjusting the values of /proc/acpi/video/GFX0/DD02/brightness, but saw no effect.  I'm using an Acer Aspire 5740-5513, which has an intel core i3 using Intel Graphics Media Accelerator HD

    Hey guys, the following script I wrote might be useful for increasing/decreasing and/or setting brightness to min/max using 'xbacklight' so you can bind it to some of your key combination. For example i have FN+f2 set to '/path/to/script down' to decrease '/path/to/script up' to increase etc ...
    Respect
    #!/bin/bash
    if [ $# -ne 1 ]
    then
    exit 1
    elif [ $1 == "down" ]
    then
    xbacklight - 10
    elif [ $1 == "up" ]
    then
    xbacklight + 10
    elif [ $1 == "max" ]
    then
    xbacklight = 100
    elif [ $1 == "min" ]
    then
    xbacklight = 10
    fi

  • My screen turned blue and won't return to the home page

    i touched the screen too much, too fast and the screen turned blue and won't show the icons.
    what to do?

    Try this  - Reset the iPad by holding down on the Sleep and Home buttons at the same time for about 10-15 seconds until the Apple Logo appears - ignore the red slider - let go of the buttons. (This is equivalent to rebooting your computer.) No data/files will be erased. http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1430http://support.apple.com/kb/ht1430

    Hi Goofy Goat,
    Welcome to the Apple Support Communities!
    It sounds like you have done some great troubleshooting for your iPod nano that is not responding. In this situation, if resetting it did not resolve, I would suggest restoring the iPod back to its factory settings and then sync your content back onto it from iTunes. Please use the following article as a resource for restoring.

  • Touch screen frozen and won't shut off

    What do I do if my touch screen is frozen and I can't shut it off?

    Did you try to reset your device by holding the sleep and home button until the Apple logo comes up again?
    If this does not work, try to connect in recovery mode to restore: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1808

  • Screen is frozen, it won't allow any action such as "slide to unlock

    My screen is frozen, it won't allow any action such as " slide to unlock. When double tapped, a screen with "enter passcode" appears but passcode cannot be entered.

    That is very unfortunate. When you connect it to your computer, will it sync with iTunes?
    If your iPad will sync with iTunes, I suggest that you backup your iPad with iTunes, then proceed to do a software restore. To do a software restore, plug your device into your computer, click on your device in iTunes, then under the general device information (a picture of the device with the name, etc) is a button that says 'restore'. This will wipe all of the software off of your device (as well as all your apps and files, which is why you backed them up), including, more than likely, the software issue with not accepting user input.
    If that does not work, power the device down into DFU (Device Firmware Update) mode. Here are the steps for putting your device into DFU mode:
    1.) Plug your device into your computer
    2.) Hold the power and home button down for 10 seconds
    3.) After ten seconds, let go of the power button but continue holding the home button.
    4.) Stop holding the home button once iTunes recognizes the device as being in 'recovery mode' (really DFU mode in this case).
    If still that does not work, it is most likely not a software issue, but a hardware issue. The way the iPad 'touch screen' (truly a digitizer) works is that you are not really touching the screen (LCD) of your device, but instead a front plate (the digitizer) which detects touches, interprets them, and tells the CPU of the iPad where touches occured, so that the iPad can then calculate what was at that location, etc.
    The way it transfers this information is that it has a small cable leading from one corner of the digitizer to a port on the inside of the iPad, the same way the iPhone, iPod Nano (multi-touch version) or iPod Touch works. Opening the iPad to check for this cable can cause damage to the digitizer, damage to the internal components to the iPad, and will certainly void your warranty. If none of the software restores do the job, I would suggest taking it to your nearest Apple Store (or sending it to Apple if you do not live near an Apple Store) to have the hardware digitizer component replaced.

  • HT201210 I just updated my Ipad and I have a message that says "canot back up" and it's frozen and won't allow me to do anything.

    I just updated my Ipad and I have a message that says "cannot back up" and nowv it is frozen and won't allow me to do anything. I can't even shut the Ipad off.

    Reboot the iPad by holding down on the sleep and home buttons at the same time for about 10-15 seconds until the Apple Logo appears - ignore the red slider if it appears on the screen - let go of the buttons. Let the iPad start up.
