Hello,

I have a ipod nano 2nd generation. It has the white screen of death. I have read where pushing and holding certain buttons will reset it. But I am ignorant of the terms used for the buttons. What buttons do I push - MENU, >>|, >|, |<< or center? In what order? And for about how long?

I have seen the link. My problem is what are the buttons they are talking about? That was my question.

Hold Menu + SELECT (the select button is the big circular button the color of your casing just below the MENU and above PLAY/PAUSE >|| buttons) for 10s while it is off. If this doesn't solve your problem, then you can do a manual restore in iTunes. If that doesn't work, it may be another problem such as a dead battery.
