How to Reset or Unfreeze an iPod Nano, iPod Touch, iPod Classic, or iPod Shuffle

, , 1 Comment

Because I am good at digital devices, and many friends ask me about a lot of questions that deal with technical support, such as how do I unfreeze or reset my iPod device! I’m not sure why so many people have been asking me that lately, but since they are, I thought I would write up a quick post on how to go about resetting your iPod if it has frozen up!

Of course telling you how to reset an iPod Nano may work for some, but not for those who have an iPod Touch, so I’ll try to list out the instructions for as many as I can! Here we go!

How to unfreeze or reset an iPod Touch

To reset iPod touch, press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time until you see the Apple logo show up on the screen:

How to unfreeze or reset an iPod Classic

1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)

2. Now press and hold the Menu and Select buttons until the Apple logo appears, which may take about 6 to 10 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.

This one is similar to how you would do it for an iPod Classic:

1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)

2. Now press and hold the Menu and Select buttons until the Apple logo appears, which may take about 6 to 10 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.

You can also reset an iPod Mini in the same way as the above steps.

How to reset or unfreeze an iPod Shuffle

1. First , eject your iPod shuffle from iTunes, if you have it connected.

2. Then remove the iPod shuffle from the USB dock.

3. Move the switch that is on the top of the iPod shuffle to the off position.

Note: When iPod shuffle is off, the green stripe by the switch is not visible.

4. Wait 5 seconds.

5. Move the switch back to the on position so green stripe will be visible in either position.

And that’s it! Hopefully, now that you know these steps, you don’t have to keep taking out the battery to unfreeze your iPod! Any comments or questions, make sure to write below! Enjoy!
