Chosen Solution
  • Connect your device to a computer and open iTunes
  • While your device is connected, force it to restart
  • Don't release the buttons when you see the Apple logo
  • When you get the option to restore or update, choose Update

Or other method similar to first one but it is easy way

  • If your screen is black or frozen, you might need to force restart your device. A force restart won't erase the content on your device. You can force restart your device even if the screen is black or the buttons aren't responding. Follow these steps:
  • Press and hold both the Sleep/Wake and Volume Down buttons for at least ten seconds, until you see the Apple logo.
  • On an iPod touch: Press and hold both the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons for at least ten seconds, until you see the Apple logo.

Press the Power button and home button simultaneously, and hold them down. This may take a while but don't give up really quick. Mine took a while to turn on but it did with this method. Hope this helps, and good luck!

Yay, it worked for me also! All of a sudden I had the black screen of death.,(That's what I heard some techies call it on youtube). Anywho, I've been using my Nano for exercise, and keeping track of my steps. Great little music player, and step keeper. I am so happy that this fix worked. Thankx guys!
