How do I know when the iPod Touch Is Dead

Any model of iPod Touch includes major upgrades to its predecessor, with little change in physical design. At the time of publication, the iTouch has reached the fourth generation. All models have a button on the side, with a home button at the bottom. Touch screens are similar in size and functionality. Therefore, the symptoms of a dead iPod Touch are the same regardless of which model


1. Keep the round "Home" button near the bottom of the iPod. If an application is frozen on the screen, this power to connect and return to the home screen. If you have an iPod Touch 4 or higher, the multi-tasking does not automatically close the app. Instead double tap "Home" button and all recently used applications are listed. Eliminate the problem through a finger on the app "X" appears in the corner.


2. Reset the iPod by holding down the "Home" and "Power" to disabled. The power button is located on top of the iPod Touch. Do not let go of the buttons to your white Apple logo. This will close the applications that were active and memory. This can be used when the iPod screen is black and can not be activated.


3. Let the iPod Touch is in a bowl of rice if you suspect water damage. The rice helps to absorb excess water and the problem can determine in a matter of days. Try not to connect the device until it is fully dehydrated. If you've tried everything without success, it is likely that the iPod is dead.

iTouch stuck and unrecognizable


Sounds like a long shot but it's the only solution I've been able to track down for the oxe8000035 error - try a different iPod USB cable.

Otherwise, it's a trip to the Apple store.

Good luck.

Software upgrade 2.0 for ipod touch


Hey Dennis A,

According to information provided by the manufacturer, the "software upgrades" that are included with specific 16GB iPod Touch models are part of Apple's January software upgrade. The upgrade provides e-mail functionality, access to Google maps, weather forecasts, stock market tracking and a notepad program for the iPod Touch.

Apart from this slight change in pre-installed software, there should not be any other difference between the two 16GB iPod Touch models available through your local Best Buy™ store - they have identical hardware specifications.

Please keep in mind that a product's model number may change slightly whenever a minor cosmetic or major software update occurs. In this particular case, the model number MA627LL/A was superseded with model number MA627LL/B to reflect the changes in the factory-installed programs. Both models are considered to be the same generation of hardware.

If you would like more information about this software upgrade, I would strongly suggest checking out the following link:

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.
