    You don't need to come close to water - one tiny drop in the hole where the earphones are plugged in is enough.

    I do not consider it right, but the apple is irreducible, I do not know what to do. I will go to court

    Expensive against a huge rich Company - not wise.

    this has happened to mine as well. there are no apple stores nearby so apple are sending a returns pack.
    there's no way it shouldn't be covered by warranty but for some reason i can't help worrying i'm gonna get charged for a new one

    For UK returns they take your credit card number and send the replacement plus a package in which to return the faulty item. If you do not return the faulty item within 10 days, they charge you for the replacement.

    In my case it all worked beautifully, and I even got a reminder to return the faulty Nano quickly to avoid the charge.

    Instead of printing out forum posts - why not just contact them and tell them what is up? I don't see any Apple support person not replacing your Nano if it has this issue.

    My iPod Nano 6th Gen did the same to me last weekend. Lasted me just over one month.

    Took mine back to ASDA where I bought it from for a refund, then went and bought myself a Sony Walkman. No problems so far

    Just adding my "me too" to this thread. I'm going to call apple today.

    I've had this iPod about 2 weeks and loved it, until the button stuck.

    This has just happened to me within the last hour. Was busy planning some GCSE listening work (I'm a teacher) and went to refresh the screen to change the track, and the button is locked, can't move it. I rang my local retail store who said to restore the settings which should fix it. Well of course, it hasn't. So they said bring it in, which will be at the end of the week now. I shall wait with interest to see what they do, and will certainly show them these pages of comments!
