iPod Nano Won't Turn On?

    Up until now I've been very happy with my 4th generation 8GB Nano. Today, I was listening to it and all of a sudden it turned off. I tried to turn it back on, but it wouldn't.

    I figured I must have lost track of how much charge was left in the battery and I just needed to charge it. I plugged it into my iBook, but the Nano's screen never lit up telling me it was synchronizing. Nor did the iPod icon appear on my screen and iTunes did not open like it usually does when I connect my iPod.

    Any ideas as to what's wrong with it or how to fix it? Should I just take it to an Apple store and see if it can be fixed? It's obviously still under warranty.

    Try to hold the menu and center button, it might restart your iPod.

    It worked!!! It didn't even get rid of any of the songs I have on there either. :) Thank you so much! :D

    Now I just have to hope it doesn't happen often. Random turning off is the reason I stopped using my old MP3 player and bought a Nano.

    I am having the same issue. I tried the reset method but it didnt work. As we speak itunes just finally recognised it after a few hours so i am trying a restore. In case that dosent work does any one have any suggestions. Ive only had it a week and i could send it into apple but i rather excersise all options before i go weeks with no tunes on my route.
