Cool fault! Here's what to do:

  • When it goes black press and hold the Select and Play button
  • Hopefully it comes up with a display saying 'Ok to disconnect'. What that actually means is 'Please connect me now', just a weird apple way of saying it.
  • From there you should be able to connect it to iTunes. Make sure you have the latest version of iTunes.
  • in iTunes on the iPod main page click the restore button.
If none of that works it needs looking at by a service engineer.

All the best

My ipod touch wont turn on, it shows the little pple symbol on the screen, then flashes white, blacks out, and the apple appears again. I've pressed all the buttons to try to get it to work, but it keeps...


try holding the menu button and the power button for about 20 secs. this will cause it reset, if this method doesn't work, then hold down the menu button, connect it to a PC then hold down the power button, if you have Itunes installed on your computer, it will alert you that it detects an Ipod in recovery mode, basically after that it'll attempt to fix your problem, and it will be able to turn on again.

Password protected and wont power up and cant connect to itunes


here's how:
1. Turn on your iPod (in my case it would only get as far as displaying the Apple logo
2. Hold the power and home buttons down (the iPod will power off after 10 seconds, but keep holding those buttons down)
3. After the iPod powers off, release the power button (but keep holding the home button down)
4. After a couple more seconds, you should hear that magical “ding dong” that means the iPod is coming back alive, and that Windows has detected it. You may even see a little “New hardware” popup in Windows. It is now safe to release the home button, and your iPod is in DFU mode.
5. Now iTunes will see it as a DFU’ed iPod and should ask you to automatically restore its firmware.
6. iTunes has to download the new firmware, and it takes a while, so go make a sandwich.
