Question about Apple iPod nano 3rd Generation
The screen appears blank and white. I have tried toggling the hold switch followed by pressing down menu and select and at the end of 6-8 seconds all I get is a double beep - no applie icon at all. This is even after several attempts. I have also restored the ipod back to factory settings. Any suggestions appreciated
Hold the home button and the power button at the same time and wait until the device shows the Apple logo on your screen (should take around 30 seconds).

The first thing that every iPod owner needs to know is how to
restart your little MP3 player. Apple has a nice little tech note about

I know you tried to fix it, but trying multiple times may work.
The message "go to www.apple.com/support/ipod" usually is preceded by, or followed by, the Apple logo or the sad face icon. It directs you to the Apple support site because either the iPod software is corrupted or their is a hardware problem. You should try to reset the iPod (try several times). If that doesn't right the iPod, then try to restore it (which will erase the entire iPod and reload the software.
Follow the links above and see if that gets your iPod working. You might want to see if you can update the iPod/iTunes software or try this troubleshooting guide. If it is really a hardware problem then your iPod needs to be taken in for service.
