I was listening to my iPod as I was working out and I noticed that it stopped playing. I looked at the screen and noticed that the typical GUI was gone and instead there was a text-based menu (kinda like DOS) with a variety of options that seemed more than the typical menu options (such as power source, standby, etc.) I couldn't figure out how to control this interface as it didn't seem to respond to touch. It also kept switching to the main boot screen (black background, white apple) and between different menus. A couple of times the normal GUI was restored, but whenever I pressed the power button, the volume control graphic would come on the screen. There seems to be no way to turn off the iPod now and it keeps switching between different menus usually with the boot screen in between.
Anybody have any idea what's going on?
An example of the menu looks like this:
N20 Snowfox (4A0432)
Voltage: 3759 mV

Touch Panel |
Thanks for your input Antonio, but I resolved the issue
I connected it to my computer, but that didn't do anything.
I took Kenichi's advice and went to the Genius Bar at my local Apple store. It turned out that water had gotten inside my nano and corroded the copper inside. I use the Nano to excercise and clipped it to my shorts and I guess sweat was able to get inside via the charging port. I read on forums that many people had the same issue. Apple didn't cover it as they considered it neglect and something not covered under the warranty, although they tried to sell me one at a discount. Luckily, a family member had an extra Nano I could use.
