Hi all,

 

My ipod nano 3G has been acting up for about 3 months now.  It started off by being frozen and would not respond to touches on the click pad for increasingly long amounts of time (first it was 5 minutes, then 10, etc.).  It has come to the point where it won't respond at all now.  I am able to view it in itunes and I can play music through itunes from the ipod.  I can also play music through an 'ihome'. 

 

I have tried absolutely everything I can find on the internet to update it/reset it/restore it/everything it about 5 times each.  The click menu/select together for 6-8 seconds does nothing but dim the screen (no apple icon appears).  In fact I cannot get an apple icon to appear no matter what I try. 

 

Has she just finally kicked the bucket as my exercise buddy and time to retire her?

 

Thanks for any info I can get.

    More than likely. Sorry.

     

    When you exercised with it, did you have in a protective case to prevent moisture from seeping into the Nano?

    Thanks B-rock,

     

    I had a protective case but it was in rough shape and I'm sure moisture got in there more than once.  It lasted a long time!

     

    I ended up taking off the back cover and the click-wheel cable basically just fell off.  Looks like it had deteriorated from corrosion or something.

     

    Thanks again

    Sorry to hear that.

     

    And your welcome.
