I have a relatively new iPod nano. (about 4 months) I synced it last night and then unplugged it from my laptop. Today the unit is completely dead. Even when you plug it into power there is no response. Just dead.

Any ideas? Or is this one I'll have to return?

Thanks in advance.

You can get it to turn on <period>?

If no, then try hooking it up to you computer and see if it works

If yes, then it seems as though you've got a faulty battery.
Return.

This may be a stupid question but did you switch the hold switch?

Thanks Guys,

Yes I checked to make sure the lock was off. (easy to forget)

And.. no, there is no power when plugged into the dock or my laptop. I can't get any kind of response out it. I'll return it, but thought i might be missing something.

Wait a day or two and check back here

Someone around here might stroll by with an answer.

Try the iPod Troubleshooter here:

Apple - Support - iPod - iPod nano (3rd generation) Troubleshooting

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

Yes, but if you actually click the link, it will take you to the 4th generation page. The link is simply named wrong.

I went to the apple site and went into troubleshooting. I followed the reset directions and it brought it back up. So...problem solved, it looks like.

This is the third ipod I've had and I've never experienced that issue before.

Thanks for the help everyone!

Glad to hear it. I've had this happen from time to time, particularly with a new iPod. If it keeps happening, try to do a full restore.

handy thing to know

I find your lack of faith in me disturbing!
