hi everyone

thanks so much to anyone who responds. I've had my ipod nano for 2 weeks or so now. However, tonight (i havent used it in about 30 hours) i went to it and nothing worked. I plugged it into my computer (usb2.0 port), and at first nothign worked. When i touch the scroll wheel thing the screen lights up, but there is no text or anything on the screen, just a blank white lighed screen. There is no battery charging or any icons. i've tried toggling the hold switch and holding the menu and select buttons. This "resets" the nano and displys the folers on my computer, but the nano is still blank. Please ask away as i'm sure i left some important things out, thanks!! and by the way... the MUSIC WORKS... and scroll wheel, but no text on screen...

ipod nano, Windows XP, windows XP, pentium 3, 512 RAM, 994 mhz

    Try resetting it manually, by holding the menu and play button at the same time for a while. then turn it on again.. Think it will work then

    That sounds like your nano is working, but the contrast is set all the way down.

    Trying to feel your want to the settings menu and get the the contrast would be tough. Especially if you've turned any of the default Main Menu options on or off.

    I'd say back up the nano, then reset it to factory specs with the iPod updater. If it is your contrast, that should set it back to a level where you can actually see the controls.
