How to Reset the Volume Limit on the iPod Nano
Earbuds (morguefile.com)

Resetting the volume limit on your iPod Nano affects everything you listen to, from music to audio books. You can adjust the volume for each individual item on your Nano using the click wheel, but the highs and lows of the sound will depend on the overall volume limit setting. Volume levels will vary with different ear buds and headphones, and using external devices like docking stations to play your iPod Nano will also cause variation in the volume.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Press any button on your iPod Nano's click wheel and turn it on. Press the "menu" button at the top of the click wheel until you reach the iPod menu.

  2. 2

    Select "Settings" from this menu by scrolling down until "Settings" is highlighted, then click the centre button.

  3. 3

    Select "Playback" from the menu choices that show up.

  4. 4

    Select "Volume Limits." You will reach a screen with a speaker icon and dots indicating the level of volume your iPod is currently set on.

  5. 5

    Scroll the wheel up or back to adjust the volume limits. Press the centre button and you will have the option to lock in your settings by selecting a four-digit combination lock. This is not a necessary step; you can click on "done" and finish. Setting the combination allows you to have more control over any future changes to your iPod's volume limits. Scroll the click wheel to select your combination. Press the centre button and you will revisit the volume limits; adjust it as you like and press the centre button.

Tips and warnings

  • If you set up a combination and forget it, you can reset your iPod Nano and start over again. Resetting will not lose any of your downloads, but you will need to restore or reset many of the settings you initially chose when you first set up your iPod.
  • Changing the volume limits on your iPod Nano covers everything on your player, but the sound levels for songs, audio books and shows will vary based on how they were recorded.
