My 5th generation iPod nano is locked.


This is not the "screen lock" which asks for a passcode.  Rather, it is like the "hold" switch lock.  A tiny padlock appears in the upper-left hand corner of the screen and the wheel (menu, center butto, etc.) are totally non-responsive.  The hold switch is NOT on, however, and I have toggled it several times to no effect.  It stays locked.


I tried to reset, but the menu and center buttons don't respond.


I used "restore" on iTunes--twice--but that didn't work, either.


The iPod still syncs to iTunes and shows up on my computer when it is plugged in, but I can't get it to respond to pressing of any of the inputs.


Any suggestions?


Is it dead?
