    How can I get a user manual for my Nano Ipod
    6th Generation? I saw the one online, but the print is so small that it is hard to read. I also would like to know how to remove a song that is on my Ipod.

  3. Pam Keberlein says

    You have the most appalling resources for instruction manuals that I have ever seen. I need an instruction manual. I have now spent about 30 minutes on various websites trying to find one. This is ridiculous. Please email a manual or I will return this little puppy and never buy another Apple product.

    • Janet says

      You can download a manual from apple’s website or you can look at contents in the manual and read it online

    Extremely frustrating.

  6. Gary S says

    Very frustrated with this device. Screen doesn’t work. No manual to refer to for help.
    These devices should come with a manual. How do I delete songs that I don’t want on the device? Help!

  8. Jim says

    I just want to use the nano as a watch. It just turns off after a minute or so. How can I make it stay on like a regular wrist watch

  9. Lisa says

    I had the same problem with the music shutting off when the screen went dark. I found this on page 53 of the 6th generation iPod User manual I downloaded and it seems to have done the trick.

    If music stops when the iPod nano screen turns off:
    Make sure the earphone port is free of debris.
    Make sure the earphone or headphone connector is pushed in all the way. To see an illustration, go to

  10. Roy Morales says

    how do I get my nano 6 gen to play my entire playlist in shuffle mode 1 time before repeating a song. My 4th gen did but my 6th will play some songs 4 or 5 times a day. I’ve had this nano 2 months and have not heard some songs yet! and every time I turn it off it start my catalog over.

  11. Elizabeth says

    How can I get mine to not repeat a song after it is done playing? I do not see a turn on/turn off option for that.

  12. Hillary says

    My only other iPod was a (old, old) clickwheel. I loved it, alas after ten years and one battery change it passed. I could not find another that I liked until I found this refurbished iPod nano 6th gen. Yes, it does appear that all Apple stuff no longer comes with the very nice, very handy users manual (nor the really cool packaging). This is indeed frustrating. However, having it on line is cool. After all, in a matter of time you will not need it – and if you do you know where it is because you bookmarked it. I love this little thing! Yeah, I don’t know how to do certain things, but heck I’m in my 60’s and that is just the way electronics (for me). And I am learning how to use this little Apple by not being able to do something, so looking it up.

  13. Alba says

    It’s also nice annd soft and bendy, which is much more than manmy other” weather resistant” cases.
    To install your device into the case, whjich prevents scratches.
    Ok So I’m going too drop it on the ground or accidently drop it to
    the next level with style. However, if you are looking for
    something tough, but yet with great burton
    function and lear screen which wll not require replacing, iphone cases quality this case will not let you down.
