    What have you already tried? Have you done the 5 R's? Doing a software update or restore my solve this. Are you using a screen protector? Does it do it if you have the ipod on a table and you are using just one finger. Is the screen absolutely clean?

I had this same problem. I discovered by accident that it seems to have been a conflict between drivers for my Microsoft keyboard and Logitech mouse. I'd used the supplied disks to install both. When I removed those drivers and let Windows find the drivers within its own files, the problem healed itself. Just a guess, but it might be worth a try for you.

There's a glitch in the firmware. The best thing you can do is Restore, let it revert to backup. If it still does it after that, try Restore and treat as new. If you're still having the problem, try holding Alt when you click Restore and choose an earlier iPhoneOS. If you're running 2.1, update to 2.2. If none of that works, the iTouch is defective... call Apple or take it to an Apple Retail Store.

Letters missing when typing acer laptop

To determine if the keyboard controller is faulty or the keyboard is faulty, connect an USB keyboard to your laptop. If all the keys work on the USB keyboard then the laptop keyboard is faulty and it needs to be replaced.
A replacement keyboard maybe available from this WEB site.

Ipod trick and tips Through using your iPod Touch you invariably pick up little...

Ipod trick and tips

Through using your iPod Touch you invariably pick up little tricks to get things done quicker, or make life easier. Or maybe a cool unknown feature.

1. If you're scrolling through a long document/page in Safari - if you tap the bar at the top of your screen containing the time and battery, Safari will automatically scroll up to the top of the document/page and the show address bar.

2. Turn off WiFi and SSH (using Services from Installer) to save battery power when not in use.

3. Double clicking the home button in any application, or with the screen off will bring up the music controls.

4. Make sure to completely close apps when you are done with them to save battery power. This is accomplished by pressing and holding the home button for approximately five seconds. This boosts battery life big time if you run lots of different apps all the time.

5. Holding down letters on the keyboard will pop up the accents/symbols associated with those letters. Once it pops up, slide your finger over to the accent/symbol you like.

6. Whilst in Mail's inbox view, sliding your finger from left to right on a message the 'delete' button will appear. This also applies in the list view of the Videos application.

7. In Safari double tap to zoom in. You can also "pinch" (putting your thumb and index finger on the screen and pinching in and out) to zoom in Safari and in Pictures.

8. You can charge your iPod Touch from any powered USB port. Such as a computer, printer, media centre. The device does not have to have iTunes installed to provide power to your iPod Touch.

9. Need a spare cleaning cloth for your touch, or an extra cloth to rest your iPod touch on while at work or school? Just go to your local vision care store (or pharmacy) and get an eyeglass/sunglass "cleaning cloth". Cheap and works great!

10. When watching a video, tap to bring up the onscreen controls. When you are done watching a video make sure you press done so your progress will be saved.

11. If you want to set a picture as a permanent background (and not only in the "wake" screen) Set the picture as a background in settings or directly from the picture gallery then off the theme wallpaper in the SummerBoard settings.

12. When typing a lot of text in Safari turn it to horizontal view. The keyboard will be bigger and you can get a better grip of the Touch while typing with two thumbs.

13. When typing if you want to add something from the numbers keyboard just hold down the numbers and slide your finger to the number or symbol you want, and release. It will take you back to your letters keyboard. This way you dont have to tap numbers, tap your number, then tap numbers again to go back. This also applies for using the 'shift' key to apply capital letters.

14. When in Safari, if you are presented with a
link, hold your finger over the link, and a bubble will appear showing the URL that the link is tied to.

15. In Safari since you can't open links in a new windows, you can open a new page, tap the bookmarks icon, tap the history folder and direct yourself to the last page you were just on and tap the link from there.

16. When listening to an audiobook, iTunes and your iPod create a new chapter list unrelated to the subject of the book. It's accessible using the same control used for viewing audio tracks (upper right of screen).

17. Make a spelling mistake? Press and hold the word you spelt wrong and a magnifying glass will appear. Slide your finger back and forwth to move the cursor.

18. When you're on a website that has a frame or an iframe with scrollbars in it, use two fingers on that frame to scroll that window and back to a single finger to scroll the whole page.

19. When typing, if you press the space bar twice after a word it will insert a period and another space.

20. If you wish to use the professional ipod video converter,go to this site
I’v all through used it for many yrs,Steady and legal .

My sound works normally when I do not have my earplugs plugged in but when i do the sound is about 33% of what it should be

Now I will say that just upgrading your headphone's alone will certainly improve the ipod touch's sound greatly but if you want a proper more dare I say "TRUE" sound then you can't go wrong with investing in something like the "NU Force Icon" & make sure you pair them with the correct type of headphone's... something clear & true maybe like the "Monster copper's" or check out some "Grado's" or whatever takes your fancy as theres plenty of choice's you can make in the Headphone market & even in the portable headphone amp market too.
But IMHO the ipod touch 3g with its supplied bog standard apple headphones might either give you a sore head or might make you want to chop off your own head as they sound that bad even with a lossless track or 320kb mp3.

So once you add your preferred choices of portable headphone amp & headphone combo = you should be quite happy with the resulting sound oh & also please don't mess with the ipods EQ settings as on FLAT

I am new to ipods. I am trying to charge it with a sandisk charger from my computer and the screen stays blank after I disconnect it. Is it charging? Am I doing something wrong?

ipods use a specific type of charging cable, using one not made for it can damage the device. i suggest purchasing a cord specifically designed for your ipod type.

I cant connect to the internet from iPod 32GB please help me! when it says select a Wi-Fi network, i did and it requires a password. im actually not sure about whether the pw i typed is right or wrong but...

On your computer go to start,in search bar type in cmd and click on cmd under found item. Type ipconfig then hit enter.Look for Default Gateway and find a set of numbers that should look something like
Open up your browser and
type in http:plus those numbers in the address line and hit enter .This should take you to the main page of your router.

From there you need to follow along and read every page carefully. All routers are not the same but you should find an area that says Wireless and then Security. If you used WEP encryption, for example, you will find that information there. This should cover you with most routers.

My ipod say visit

when it displays "", it is showing you the url that you want to go to. To go to this url, open up firefox or internet explorer and type in the url into the white bar at the top, and press 'enter' on the keyboard. The url it gave you is actually apple's official website. Showing you the url to go to is the ipod's default message if something is wrong with it. Going to the URL will most likely answer why it is showing you the message in the first place, as it is apple's official web page for getting help with your ipod.

The screen just says MP3 Player and wont do anything else. There is a new AAA battery installed as well. What's going on?

Yes, your programing just got messed up. Plug it in and then run the command prompt program. and type in "cmd'"

Once the prompt window opens up, type "fomat f:" or what ever drive letter your mp3 is. hit enter. the mp3 player will re-format and then it will work as usual.
