    Hi there! so just as i got in to work today i did the usual "hold down play" to turm my Ipod off. Except this time it crashed! the screen is now frozen and it doesnt matter which button i press or hold down it doesnt seem to respond. Also the screen is lit. I though that it might fix itself but its been half an hour and its still in the same state.

    Does anyone know what to do? Or any buttons i should press to reset it? Or should i just wait until the battery dies? (which will be a long time!)

    thanks...

    If it is a clickwheel iPod:
    Hold down "Menu" and "Select" until the screen blanks. The iPod will then reboot.

    3G: Hold Down "Menu" and "Play".

    Just read the manual or search the forums before posting. And there is an edit button for your posts. ;)
