If your iPod is acting funny, and you want to see whats wrong, you can do a diagnostics check. To enter Diagnostics Check mode, hold down center button and menu, till the apple logo appears. Then before the logo goes away, hold down center button and previous, then the screen will turn green. This will come up:

iPod Diagnostics BuildID: **** (Apple Logo)
SVC (The Date) V. ****


>Power
Sleep
Audio
Video
LCD
IO
Memory
TouchWheel
About

To move to a different selection, press previous or next. Move to a sub menu with the center button. To exit, go into the power sub menu, then select Reset. I have only tried this on a iPod 3rd Generation Nano.

It works on the iPod Video (5.5) as well. I'll have to try it on my grandma's 1st gen Nano.

I was trying the diagnostic thing on my classic, and it didn't work, so I started trying different combinations. I would get the apple logo, and then I would try the center and forward button instead. That didn't do anything so I tried pressing the play button and center button. I then got a white screen with a blocky battery icon at the top, a big check mark, and the ipod saying "Ok to Disconnect". I'm not sure what this does, but it might be for something. :P
