Ipod Freeze

#1
My Ipod froze at startup. I keep restarting by holding menu + center button. And it just sits there. How do i get out of this screen?

I would say take the battery out..but we know how Ipods are, there is a trick to fixing that but Im not sure what it is. Im pretty sure you hold down the menu button and put the hold switch on. I dont remember :)

Have you tried restarting it with it plugged into a wall outlet? I remember reading about that when I first got my iPod. If all else fails, call Apple Support.

I had a similar problem with mine a while ago. I plugged it into the mains then then help down Menu and Select until the Apple Logo appeared. But as you have mentioned you have repeatedly tried this I am sort of out of ideas. Best thing is call Apple support, they are very helpful, far better than any 'pc' company.

As for RickyC's comment I used to use a Nomad Zen (still have it, sat in a drawer now), it was alright, but the interface and controls of the iPod are far superior.

I got it to fix i think. Its charging right now. I let it sit overnight and it ran outta batt. When i woke up this morning i went to see whats up then when i pushed play nothing happened so i restarted it ONCE AGAIN. Then sucessfully it went to the menu screen. So i guess wasting the batt helped. Hopefully it still works. I'm charging it right now. THanks for the inputs guys. BTW the Zens suck my friend has one. Its a ghetto version of a Ipod =/ and much larger.

Is there a reset option?

I know some players have a small hole where you can stick a pin in and reset the device and it fixes some bugs you might have. I wonder if the iPod has anything like that.

Thats the purpose of the Menu+Select combo ;)

Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
