Question about Apple iPod touch

1 Answer

No power from my IPod touch

I tried to turn on my iPod touch and nothing happened. I'm sure the battery wasn't dead and when i connected it to my PC and then my laptop, nothing happened. The USB ports on the computers are working fine. It was only bought in December.

    After looking at some other people's problems & the advice given to them, i managed to get it sorted. It seem's the battery was totally dead after all and once i held the start/on button for 5-7 seconds, i got an Apple sign on my screen. I was able to then get it charged up.



    Thanks

    tried holding the start button down for 5 to 7 seconds screen,it wont come on when plugged in to various chargers.

    when it isnt on charge & even though there is no power the ipod itself gets VERY hot on the back,just above the charge point on the back.

How do I find if my iPod touch battery is dead?


<p>When the iPod touch battery dies, you cannot do anything with the device. You will receive a warning on the screen of the iPod touch, when 5 percent of the battery turns on the device. Connect the device to a power source as soon as possible to load and prevent the battery goes dead. When the battery dies, the unit will shut down and will be connected to a power and charged before you can use <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Press the iPod touch "Sleep / Wake" button, located along the upper side of the machine. If your iPod does not care, this is an indicator that the battery is dead. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Connect a charging cable to charge your iPod and connect the USB cable to a power of high power. High-power USB ports directly on your computer tower or, if the hardware usually found in the tower on the monitor, the monitor itself. The iPod touch screen shows a big red battery icon on the far left of the icon, indicating that the battery was empty. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Press the "Sleep / Wake" to see if the iPod is connected. If so, check the battery life, looking at the battery icon in the upper right corner of the screen. When the icon appears white, the battery is full when the icon is half black, the battery is almost dead, and if the battery is almost dead, you will receive a warning. If the iPod does not start, the battery is completely dead. In this case, your iPod into electronics store and have the battery replaced. <br />

My ipod touch has a dark screen and doesn't show anything. no light at all as if it is turned off. but i can listen to music for example. it's working but there is no light.


  1. Turn iPod touch off and turn it on again.
  2. If the issue persists, try to reset the iPod touch while it is connected to power. To reset, press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until either the Apple logo or battery symbol appears. If the battery symbol appears, continue to charge the device until it is fully charged.
  3. If that does not fix it. Connect to computer. Open Itunes and make sure you have the latest update.

Ipod wont restore caution sign with slash going thru circle, also itunes wont recognize ipod and try sleep mode dm mode nothing . plz help


Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and Volume Down button simultaneously for at least eight seconds or until the Apple logo appears. You may need to repeat this step.
If the above step 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. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep. Try resetting the iPod while it is connected to power.

let the battery run completely out not low... dead, attached to PC and Itunes

Screen is black and only shows the time and battery


If you found your ipod touch is 'dead', ie won't turn on, holding the power button (top right on
Ipod) does nothing, your comp doesn't even recognise it, iTunes also - then you might need to do the following :

1) Start your iTunes and connect your iPod touch to your comp.

2) Keep holding the POWER button (top right) together with the HOME button (centre, bellow the ipod screen) for about 10 seconds. You should hear a sound(s)..
Release the power button !!!ONLY!!! keep holding the HOME button, you will again hear some sounds.

3) If you did it correctly iTunes will tell you that it has detected an iPhone or iPod touch in recovery mode.

You should be able to re-sync all your previous ipod content from there...

Cheers Mate :)

My 30gb video ipod won't turn on...Nothing happens!


It sounds like there's something wrong with the hard drive. You might have a dud, in which case I would call apple ASAP to see what they can do for you, but just make sure it's charged! Sometimes with electronics like this, no lights will come on or anything until it has enough battery life to support that sort of thing.. other than that, my only advice is to call a professional on this one.. sorry :/
