Froozen and wont do ANYTHING


  1. Toggle the Hold switch. To do this, slide the switch to Hold (an orange bar appears) and then slide it back (orange bar is hidden).
  2. Reset the iPod by holding down the Menu and Center buttons for 10 seconds.
    • If the Apple logo appears on the display, connect the iPod to a computer and verify that it appears in iTunes and can play music. If the iPod appears in iTunes and can play music, no further troubleshooting is needed.
    • If the Apple logo does not appear or the iPod is not seen in iTunes, connect the iPod to a power source by either plugging it into an Apple iPod USB Power Adapter or directly into a computer's USB port.
  3. Let the iPod charge for at least 20 minutes. Note: If the iPod is connected to a computer, make sure the computer does not sleep, standby, or hibernate during the 20-minute charging period.
  4. After the iPod has charged for at least 20 minutes and while it is still connected to the power source, toggle the Hold switch again as in step 1.
  5. Try resetting the iPod by holding down the Menu and Center buttons for 10 seconds.
    • If the Apple logo appears on the display, connect the iPod to a computer and verify that it appears in iTunes and can play music. If the iPod appears in iTunes and can play music, no further troubleshooting is needed.
    • If the Apple logo does not appear or the iPod is not seen in iTunes, try putting the iPod into disk mode and restoring.
  6. Try putting the iPod into disk mode.
    • While in disk mode, connect the iPod to iTunes and try to restore.
    • If the iPod is still not recognized by iTunes, the iPod should be serviced.
    • utting iPods with a Click Wheel into disk mode
      1. Before placing the iPod into disk mode, you should verify that it is charged.
      2. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Set it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
      3. Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for at least 6 seconds until the Apple logo appears.
      4. When the Apple logo appears, release the Menu and Select buttons and immediately press and hold the Select and the Play/Pause buttons until the Disk Mode screen appears.ht1363_2.jpg
      5. Connect the iPod to your computer; the screen on the iPod will change and say "Do not disconnect"
      If you are having difficulty putting the iPod model into disk mode, set it on a flat surface. Make sure that the finger pressing the Select button is not touching the Click Wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Play/Pause button toward the outside of the Click Wheel and not near the center.
      If you are still unable to put your iPod with a Click Wheel into Disk Mode, use one finger from one hand to press the Select button, and one finger from the other hand to press the Play/Pause button.

Why wont my ipod touch turn on i turned it off and it wont come o


Hold the power button and home button for 10 seconds to ensure the device is off. Let go.

Hold the home button down, plug in the ipod to the computer, after the screen changes to the itunes plug screen, let go of the home button.

The ipod will now be in recovery mode, and you can attempt to perform a restore within itunes.

If the restore fails, and the ipod screen stays black, this means the battery is dead and must be replaced.

Hold, then turn it off again.) Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select)
buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo
appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to
repeat this step. Tip: If you are having difficulty resetting your
iPod, set it on a flat surface. Make sure the
finger pressing the Select button is not touching
any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that
you are pressing the Menu button toward the
outside of the click wheel, and not near the
center.
If the above steps did not work, try connecting
iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter
into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your
computer.

It said connect to power


First off....DO NOT connect to a USB Hub. DO connect directly to your computer.

Second off...I had exact same problems as listed above so I looked in the manual and it says:

Slide HOLD button to orange and then back to white. Then HOLD the MENU and CENTER button at same time until Apple logo appears.

Worked for me.

My IPOD is froze up!!!


Hi,

this procedure normally works for me::

1. Before manually placing the iPod into Disk Mode you should verify
that it has a charge, if not you need to either charge iPod before
continuing or connect it to power. You can either connect it to a
high-powered USB port, or plug the iPod Power Adapter into an
electrical outlet and connect iPod to the power adapter.

2. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Set it to Hold, then turn it off again.)

3. Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for at least 6 seconds
until the Apple logo appears.

4. When the Apple logo appears, release the Menu and Select buttons
and immediately press and hold the Select and the Play/Pause buttons
until the Disk Mode screen appears.

5. Disconnect iPod from the power adapter and connect it to your
computer; the screen on the iPod will change and say "Do not
disconnect"

If you are having difficulty putting an iPod model with a Click Wheel
into Disk Mode, set the iPod on a flat surface. Make sure that the
finger pressing the Select button is not touching the Click Wheel.
Also make sure that you are pressing the Play/Pause button toward the
outside of the Click Wheel and not near the center.
