Now my IPod Nano will turn off and here’s the “trip” I took to make it happen.
The solution I fell into may help others with a similar IPod problem.
Mine would not shut down so I did the usual button pushing that seemed to work in the past – I’ve owned this Ipod for a number of years. No luck.
Next, I decided that I should check out the instructions that came with the product. Some of you would have gone there earlier, I suspect. The directions said that I should, “press and hold play/pause.” Tried that. No luck.
Next, it was time for a Google search. I put in, “IPod Nano Won’t Turn Off,” and found numerous entries. The tone of most of the entries was frustration. There were also a few suggestions offered – which I tried – with no success.
However, I lucked into a successful solution (for my Ipod) after trying one of the “Google search” suggestions. Here’s how I got my IPod Nano to turn off:
(1)I used my thumb to press both the Menu (B in the diagram) and Center button (H in the diagram). This led to the Apple symbol appearing. When it appeared, I took my thumb off the Ipod.
(2)After the Apple symbol was visible for a few seconds the screen faded into darkness briefly before the screen lit up as if the Ipod was back on again.
(3)Then I pressed the Play/Pause button (D in the diagram) and the IPod shut off.
It worked for me and, THIS IS IMPORTANT; it did not mess up any of the songs I had on my IPod.
Will my solution work on your IPod Nano? You could let me know if it did – 85peterjulie17 at gmail dot com Good luck!
