Is your iPod Broken? iPod Reset Instructions
June 10, 2004 · 1,153 comments in 2004,Tips & Pointers,Werty So I was using my ipod at work today, a song come on that i did not want to hear and I hit the next button. Well my ipod locked up and just froze. Anyhow i searched google on "how to reset an ipod 40gb" and came up with nothing but crap answers, then finally found the apple manuals: To reset iPod mini, iPod mini (Second Generation), iPod photo, and iPod (Click Wheel) Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.) Press and hold the Menu and Select(center button) buttons until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 10 seconds. You may need to repeat this step. Tip: If you are having difficulty resetting your iPod, set it on a flat surface. Make sure the finger pressing the Select button (center button) is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel, and not near the center. If the above steps did not work, try connecting iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep.

Reset Apple iPhone instructions Turn iPhone off and turn it on again. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button on top of iPhone for a few seconds until a red slider appears, then slide the slider. Then press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears. Reset iPod Touch Screen (instructions coming soon) Reset Click Wheel Ipod (newer ipods including resetting an ipod video) 1. Flip the Hold switch on and off and make sure it ends up no longer on hold. 2. Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons (center Button) until the Apple logo appears (may take 5-11 seconds, and you may need to repeat this step) If this not work for you try plugging your ipod into computer or wall power.

Resetting iPod (with out dock connector) If that doesn't work, your iPod may need to be reset.While the iPod is connected to power, press and hold the Play and Menu buttons for at least 5 seconds, until the Apple logo appears.

Switch the shuffle off (you cannot see the green stripe). 3. Wait 5 seconds. 4. Move the switch to either play or shuffle (green stripe would be visible) Here is a link to the official apple website about resetting your ipod. And to the people that report the following icons on your iPod screen: * A sad looking ipod face with explamation * an exclamation point on a folder * an exclamation point on a battery * a disk with a variety of icons, including magnifying glass, x, arrow and exclamation mark * apple logo * do not disconnect * power adapter plugging into the wall I have not seen many of these, but it may be due to me having a 3rd generation iPod, if you see any of these icons on your ipod check out this article from apple summarizing them. I also have found a site that shows you some advanced (void the warranty) tricks to try and fixing your iPod problems, involving opening them up to fix the hard drive. Try these at your own risk. Remember you are not alone when your ipod freezes. Best of luck resetting your ipod and thanks for leaving your comments!

1Scott K 01.27.05 at 4:21 pm Thank you, thank you, thank you! I just experienced my first ipod mini 'hang' and your instructions on what do do were right-on. Thanks for fixing what was looking to be a bad day.

2hmdvd2005 02.01.05 at 12:10 pm I have a mini ipod and i cant reset it, as the bloody thing has no way i can see to be opened or unscrewed i cant do anything, when i try to charge it, nothing happens, tried to reset, still nothing….what can i do?

3Anonymous 02.05.05 at 3:58 am My friend had the same problem. His warranty was over so he did not want to bother sending it in or anything. It sucked for him and he will never buy another ipod again. I would check to see if you are still covered and if so send it in.

4Anonymous 02.05.05 at 1:10 pm my ipod completely blanked out, had no way of getting in! when i had finished cursing the good name of Apple computers, i tried your reset technique and it switched straight back on!! thank you!!

5Anonymous 02.13.05 at 3:54 pm My headphone remote stopped working altogether. The headphones worked but not the remote. After getting another remote sent out (I was under warranty) It didn't work either. I stumbled on your site, tried the reset you suggested and hey presto! it started working again. I guess I keep forgetting that the i-pod is just a real cut-down computer. Just because its an apple doesn't mean that it won't crash.

6Anonymous 02.17.05 at 2:07 pm helpp this did not work for me… my ipod is still stuck on american idiot and I did everything you told me to do ahhh ipod come back ;{

7Anonymous 02.19.05 at 8:12 am Thanks! That worked like a gem! (Especially after looking everywhere for my warranty and falling short!). Appreciate the advise!

8Anonymous 02.21.05 at 9:47 pm Or you can do nothing (if you don't have a charger connected) because when the iPod freezes it is invariably accessing the hard drive, and the battery will soon become discharged. When you recharge the battery later the iPod will boot-up and you'll be fine. Don't panic.

9Anonymous 02.27.05 at 8:13 pm Hmm… well i tried to reset it and no luck what so ever. I went to upload more songs to my iPod from my comp and it died. Its stuck on the Do no Disconnect screen and its making a noise like its booting up and then makes a clicking noise and keeps doing it over and over and over… :'( WHYYYYyY?!

10Anonymous 03.01.05 at 3:52 pm I've had my ipod mini for 3 months, then i was listining to a song. It kept skipping and i was like….an Iopd mini is not supposed to skip. Then it got stuck on that same song and it wouldn't do anything.THANK-YOU!!! The reset thingee worked….

I installed Ipodlinux onto my 30GB Ipod Nano. I was unable to boot to disc and the system kept going back to Podzilla. PC at that time did not recognize my ipod on USB. This took me awhile to figure out how to restore my ipod but I finally did. Here is what I used if anyone else ever has this problem. Hold top of center button while holding menu at the same time. Wait 5 seconds Ipod will start to reboot. Immediately place the finger that was on the menu button on the play/pause button but do not remove other finger that was holding top of center button. This will automatically default your ipod to disc mode and will be recognized by your PC immediately if it is connected. By Punchkins on 11.18.06 5:14 pm

1084Kristian 02. Great to come across people happy to share info! Good on 'ya! 1076tosh 12.Is your iPod Broken? iPod Reset Instructions — Werty Page 97 of 104 Thanks very much! I just had the same problem and your steps worked for me. With this knowledge I can now use the Ipod normally again.20.28.17. thank you!! *does the happy dance* http://www.werty. I have an ipod touch right. although the new area of the menu button still doesn't allow me to reset it.html 9/24/2012 .28. I won't take responsibility for any damage you might cause the Ipod. The two hard whacks on my desk worked…my track wheel was stuck…80 GB classic. I hate going anywhere without my music and i thought I was going to have to borrow money to buy a brand new ipod thank u so much You have saved me many boring musicless journeys.09 at 11:17 am thank you 1077Carlo Mendez 12. But as you're told on several pages opening your Ipod also means that you lose the warranty.net/2004/06/reset-ipod.10. And I don't know if it can cause the Ipod trouble to place a visit card or anything like that in it so if you do as I did it is on your own risk.18.09 at 11:42 pm thank god for having youre instructions…. 2) Make sure the harddisk is placed correctly – you can see and feel when it slots together with the other parts.05.10 at 2:54 pm Thank you.15.06. 1) Make sure that the harddisk is connected to the microchip board in all possible ways. and it wont turn on. When I turned the Ipod on again it just switched between showing a symbol consisting of a folder with a caution sign and an apple logo. 1080Izzy 01. but occasionally I recognized the functionality seems to have "moved" a bit to the lower left on the click-wheel. I was sure that I somehow had destroyed the harddisk of the Ipod but then I read an article from a website explaining that the Ipod sometimes shows this sign because the harddisk have removed slightly from the connectors in the Ipod (sometimes due to the heat within the Ipod) I decided to follow a few easy steps explained on the site.09 at 5:27 pm I'm just going to say thank you.27. I have just changed the battery in my 3rd gen ipod.10 at 11:55 am I don't know if anyone already have written this but there is simply just too many comments to read through by now.10 at 6:37 pm hank you my fifth generation 1086Barbara 03.09 at 12:16 am I have a particular problem my ipod scrambles my movies. Awesome. And bingo! Now the Ipod works fine once again and right now I am charging it up with the new battery.07.10 at 5:23 am Thank you so much! Your instructions were spot on! 1082fran 01. any thoughts? the movie plays fine in itunes. Meaning that a movie will play fine and then something happens and the movies freezes or the order of the movie jumps around. To make sure that the harddisk won't disconnect in the future this website suggest one to put a visit card or something like that between the harddisk and the back cover. So I opened up my Ipod once again and followed the instructions. 1083max 01.10 at 7:49 pm i want to kiss u right on the lips.. 1085Anyoimus 02.10 at 3:16 pm Looks like I also have a broken menu button. i put it on the charger and it only comes up as the red bar and the little lightnig bolt! it stays like that for a while and then just turns off!! what do i do?! 1081retarded me 94 01.10 at 8:30 pm Ok um. So i did as explained and then reassembled the front and back covers making sure that the harddisk didn't move from the position I had placed it in. 1078Marco Galaz 12.
