Ive made a couple posts about solutions/reasons about the iphone/itouch touch sensor not operating properly, so you are not alone.

Make sure that you dont have more than one finger touching the screen when you go to tap it. I realize this sounds silly, but sometimes I will hold mine so that my thumb is barely touching the screen in mid-touch or mid-text and nothing will happen.

If the problem continues, it is most likely the touch sensor malfunctioning. This leaves you two options:

1.) Calling the warranty number on the apple website for techincal assitance or going into one of their stores (where they are cool enough to usually fix their products on the spot).

2.) Sounds daunting, but a hard reset is said to solve this problem. The only downside is that you will lose all of your songs, favs, etc. and be left with the original factory settings.

Just in case you choose to do the former, here are some directions...

  1. Turn off iPhone - Hold down the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds until the red slider appears, then slide the red slider. Ignore this step if your iPhone is already off.
  2. Press and hold down the Home button for about 10 seconds until a yellow triangle with a text which says Please Connect to iTunes appears. my itouch home key is - iphone-recovery-mode.jpg
  3. Plug the iPhone into Mac or Windows PC. Release the button if you haven’t.
  4. Run and open iTunes if it’s not already opened yet.
  5. iTunes will prompt a message that says iTunes has detected an iPhone in recovery mode. Click OK.
  6. You will be taken to the iPhone pane. Then, click on Restore.
  7. Wait for the full restoration process to complete, and the iPhone will be back to the original settings state as when it left the manufacturing factory, typically a working phone again if you face any problem, unless it’s hardware related.

I have an Itouch and I am not able to connect to my home wireless network.It asks me for a password and i don't know it


It would either be the WEP key or the WPA key that your being asked for. For computers it will be termed as the network key. Try to call you ISP or router manufacturer. Im sure they can help you get that information

The touch screen on my itouch turn blak please help ,I can not turn it on or make any function on it but if i put it on the IHOME the sound is playing but the screen is still black.


try holding the power button and the home key down at the same time until the apple comes on the screen. this is a hard reset. also make sure you have the updated software version. if neither of these resolves contact apple.

Itouch won't connect to my wireless internet


I had exactly the same problem with a brand new 3rd gen iTouch. It showed it was connected to the network but wouldn't access anything (invalid argument etc). I tried everything but no joy. Eventually I fixed it by changing the router's encryption from WEP to WPA2-PSK. Fixed it like magic. Where there had been no router or DNA data before, they were suddenly filled in. The key was different but was still on the bottom of the router. I had to re-enter the key on my wireless laptop2_bing.gif but that was a small price.

You can get into the router set-up page through your web browser. I found a guide on You Tube.

Good luck!

I forgot what my oassword and the phone is disable now. Help!


Ok, well My name is Ismail A, and I will be helping you today with your problem.
Hold down the power and home keys down for about 10 seconds each while plugged into itunes. When the screen goes black, release the power button but keep holding the home key until itunes says, detected an itouch in recovery mode.

From there you can restore as normal via iTunes.

How do i exit my iphone running on singleuser boot


hey guys... the only thing you can do now is to restore your iphone/ipodtouch...
how to restore:
connect your itouch/iphone with usb to your computer and open itunes... probably itunes will not find your itouch/iphone cause its not booted correctly... so
hold down the sleep button and home button for more then 15 sec. first it appears a black screen and after actually you have to hold down both buttons till this logo with the usb and itunes appears and then itunes said its a problem with your itouch/iphone and you have to restore...
thats all - itunes restores your itouch/iphone and finish :D

good luck guys ;)

Apple ipod itouch connection to wireless internet


It's since the touch doesn't officially support WPA PSK and only supports WPA2. What will work is WEP and although it is less secure very few people will bother cracking your network. If you continue to have problems with your secured connection try putting the hex key instead of the passphrase (you set hello as your password the hex would something like 0X34Hg65) it is usually displayed just beneath the password you set.
