If you've explored all software options and the problems doesn't resolve, it's an issue with the logic board or dock connector, so ultimately if you want to resolve it, one of these components needs to be replaced. If you're under warranty apple will likely give you a new one. If you're out of warranty you can attempt a self-repair if you're comfortable with opening devices like that, there are ipod Repair guides at that show you how. Before you should consider if it's big enough of an issue to take the risk of breaking things further or if you can deal without syncing the iphone.

This happens some times when the soft ware crashes. It is not generally a problem with the ipod directionally. You just need to restore the ipod, and this will put a new version of the software on.

Once at the computer you will need itunes open and your ipod connected

1) Make sure you have the latest vertion of itunes downloading
you can check this by going to { HELP>CHECK FOR UPDATES}

2) On the ipod hold the sleep wake button at the top and the home button on the bottom at the same time until you see the apple logo

3) Once you see the apple logo - release the sleep/wake button but remain holding the home button

4) You will see an error message from your computer

5) click ok - Then the restore button - the restore will take about 15- 20 minutes

Note: if you have previously backed up the ipod it will prompt you to restore from back up in the restore process

6) re - sync2_bing.gif your content after the restore is complete

7) after sync disconnect and use

I hoped this helped-

** NOTE: If you get an error while restoring the ipod try and restore from another computer ***

when you go on itunes and click on your ipod name does the box that says "manually manage songs" have a tick by it?

uncheck it and then it should automatically sync the songs.

My ipod touch screen doesnt unlock after i entered my password

well if it is done syncing and the software has been installed in it then you might just need to restart it by holding the sleep button on top of the ipod until the power slider appears on the screen...if that doesnt happen...
then you need to hold the sleep and home buttons at the same time and hold them until the ipod restarts but when you see the apple logo reappear on the screen let go so you dont put your ipod into restore mode (trust me it wont hurt it if you do it right)
if none of these work then use itunes to restore your ipod to factory settings and re-sync and install the software again. if your problems consist contact the apple support center

My screen touch wont enter the code i havent forgot da code but when i press it da number turns blue but doesent enter da box

Hi there,

Try connecting the ipod to itunes, and setting restore. This will erase the code on the ipod touch. The ipod will allow this to happen with the last computer to sync to it.

Also make sure you have the latest itunes version installed.

and also that you have the latest ipod firmware. This can be done by selecting "check for update" from the ipod page in itunes.

Hope this helps,

When i plug in my chromatic it wont connect

Repeatedly resetting itself is one of the classic symptoms of an incomplete restore or update process. You unplugged the device from your computer before it had fully synced, thus it has corrupted.

This is not a fatal problem, though.

You need to force the nano into recovery mode, which will (unfortunately) clear your data from it and restore to factory settings. The detailed procedure for this can be found here:

If you want to give a go at restoring before full-blown recovery (although from your description I doubt it will work), try the instructions on this page:

IPod nano (3rd generation) not syncing

What seems to have happened is that either iTunes or the iPod folder has become corrupt. To solve this, download the very latest version of iTunes, install it, connect your iPod. If it wants to update the software on your iPod do this. Then on the main ipod page on iTunes click the button that says Restore. Choose the bottom most option if given any then go ahead and restore. You should now be able to sync as normal.

All the best

Help o the itouch

read this page

then perform restore

  • Note: Because Restore erases all of the songs and files on iPod, make sure to back up any files you've saved on the iPod disk. All of your songs, videos, podcasts, audiobooks, and games can be loaded back to your iPod provided that you have them stored in your iTunes Library.

How to restore your iPod:
For Windows:
  • 1. Make sure you've reinstalled the latest version of iTunes.
  • 2. Open iTunes, and then connect your iPod to your computer.
  • 3. After a few moments, it will appear in the source list in iTunes.
  • 4. Select your iPod in the source list and you will see information about it appear in the Summary tab of the main iTunes windows.
  • 5. Click the Restore button. You will be prompted with one or more restore options that may prompt iTunes to automatically download of the latest iPod Software. The 4 possible restore options are:
    • Restore Option 1: Restore - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod.
    • Restore Option 2: Use Same Version - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod even though a newer version is available.
    • Restore Option 3: Use Newest Version - Restores with the latest iPod Software on your computer.
    • Restore Option 4: Restore and Update - Restores with the latest iPod Software on your computer.
  • 6. A progress bar will appear on the computer screen indicating that the first stage of the restore process has started. When this stage is completed, iTunes will instruct you to leave iPod connected to your computer to complete restore.
  • 7. During the stage 2 of the restore process, the iPod will show an Apple logo as well as a progress bar at the bottom of the display. It is critical that the iPod remains connected to the computer or iPod Power adapter during this stage. Note: The progress bar may be difficult to see since the backlight on the iPod display may be off.
  • 8. After stage 2 of the restore process is complete and the iPod is connected to the computer, the iTunes Setup Assistant window will appear asking you to name your iPod and choose your syncing preferences similar to when you connected your iPod for the first time.
