    Hello DJ Sting Ray,



    Thanks for the question. The following articles provide the most relevant information for troubleshooting power issues with the iPod nano (6th generation):


    iPod nano (6th generation): Hardware troubleshooting



    Will not turn on or screen remains dark


    - Connect iPod to power for at least ten minutes to ensure that the battery has enough charge to allow iPod to turn on.


    - If iPod does not turn on after ten minutes, try resetting the device while it is still connected to power. Reset the iPod by holding down the Sleep/Wake button and the Volume Down button for at least eight seconds or until you see the Apple logo appear.


    - If the Apple logo appears on the display, connect iPod to a computer and verify that it appears in iTunes and can play music. If iPod appears in iTunes and can play music, no further troubleshooting is needed.


    - If the screen remains dark and will not turn on, then your iPod may need service.




    My issue is still not resolved. What do I do next?


    For information on servicing your iPod, go to the iPod Service FAQ.
