Hi ,

My name is***** am sorry to hear that you are having this issue.

I will be glad to assist you with this.

Try a reset of your iPod, press and hold both the Sleep/Wake button and Volume Down button for at least eight seconds or until you see the Apple logo. You might need to repeat this step.

If you still need help, follow these steps:

  1. Plug your iPod into a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet.
  2. Try to reset your iPod again.
