SOURCE: ipod lock

According to apples website the five r's should fix the problem
Please follow the steps in order as an early step may solve the problem and the later steps erase all data on the device (which shouldn't be a problem if you have your media backed up)
It should eventually (following through to step five)
reset the ipod to factory defaults.

SOURCE: How do I Unlock Ipod screen if I forgot the 4 digit password?

to fix this you will need to erase all the data on the ipod(s).

plug the ipod into the computer using the included usb cable. open itunes (if it doesn't open automatically) in the column on the left side of the window there is an icon showing your ipod's name. click on it then click on the button that says "restore ipod"

WARNING: this will erase all the content on the ipod (you can put it back on later)

it will ask you to confirm. hit ok and keep your ipod plugged in as it restores it to it original state. pick the language you prefer and then load your music back on the device

SOURCE: How do I Unlock Ipod screen if I forgot the 4 digit password?

There are basically three ways to unlock the Screen Lock on your iPod:

  1. The most obvious and will not work for most people (or else you wouldn’t be visiting this web site). Simply enter the 4 digit combination/pass code at Extras > Screen Lock.
  2. Connect your iPod to the first computer it was synced with or the computer set as the primary one in iTunes. Open the iTunes application, then disconnect your iPod from the computer, and it should no longer be locked.
  3. Use this final way only if the first two options do not work for you because it is a destructive process.
    Everything on your iPod will be erased.
    This should not be a problem if you have all of your songs, videos, and other media stored in iTunes and you can synchronize once again after getting the iPod unlocked. Besides, if you don’t unlock your iPod it’s useless right? Learn how to Restore your iPod using the instructions from Apple’s site.
If your iPod is simply frozen, follow my instructions for an iPod Lockup Reset.

I've tried the below method, and my music is still intact]
Step:
1. Plug in ipod.
2. Open “My Computer”
3. Look for the removable device (which is your ipod).
4. Open the folder, search for this hidden file : _locked.
rename or remove(delete) this file.
5. Eject your ipod.
Done.

Unlock screen


Is it locked by a password? Or something more terrible occurred to it? To unlock screen password, you can enter your iPod touch into DFU mode:

1. Plug in your iPod touch and turn it off. Hold down the "Home" and "Sleep/Wake" buttons for about twelve seconds.
You'll briefly see the silver Apple logo and then your touch will appear to turn back off.
2. Release the "Sleep/Wake" button but continue to hold the "Home" button until you see a message in iTunes stating that it has detected an iPod in recovery mode.

How can I unlock a disabled ipod touch?


Step 1:
The iPod Touch is a type of iPod that features a touch screen and can function as both a portable media player and as a pocket computer. It is possible to password protect your iPod Touch so that you will have to enter a password every time you want to unlock the iPod Touch screen. If you repeatedly enter the incorrect passcode, your iPod Touch will become disabled. To unlock a disabled iPod Touch, you need to sync your iPod Touch device with iTunes on your computer.

Attach the iPod Touch data cable to the bottom of your iPod Touch device and attach the other end of the data cable to an available USB port on your computer. Open iTunes on your computer and then select your iPod Touch device from the list of available devices on the left side of the iTouch window. Click the "Restore" button. If you have previously backed up your iPod Touch, you can choose to restore the device to the last back up or any saved backup. If you have never backed up your iPod Touch, this process will restore your iPod Touch's factory settings. Wait while iTunes syncs with your iPod Touch and restores the device. iTunes will prompt you when this process is complete.

I LOCKED MY IPOD TOUCH BUT I FORGOT MY PASSWORD. COULD YOU HELP ME UNLOCK IT?


If your iPod touch is password locked, the only way to get past it is to force the unit into restore mode by doing the following: 1. Plug the iPod touch in to your computer. 2. Hold the sleep/wake button and the menu button down at the same time. Keep them both pressed until you see the 'restore' screen (an iPod cable and an iTunes disc symbol) on the iPod touch. Release the buttons. 3. iTunes should now display the iPod touch, along with a message that the iPod touch is in recovery mode. Click the RESTORE button in iTunes to restore the iPod touch. Please note that doing this will erase the contents of the iPod touch -- that's how the system is designed to work: a passcode lock is meant to protect the data on the iPod.

plug it into your computer and through itunes on your original computer you will be able to reset it. If it is not the original computer that you are using you will be able to reset it but will probably lose the information on it.

My son forgot his password for his ipod touch, it is now disable. How can I fix it?


To unlock the iPod, you will need to put the iPod into recovery mode, and then restore the iPod through iTunes.

To do this:
1) Turn the iPod off.
2) Hold down the iPod's Home button and plug the iPod into the computer it was last synced with.
3) Release the Home button when the iTunes image appears on the iPod's screen.
4) Wait for iTunes to recognize that the iPod is in recovery mode, and then follow the onscreen instructions to restore the iPod.

Note: You may lose some of the information stored on the iPod.

If you cannot unlock the iPod after doing this, you will need to call Apple Customer Support.

I forgot my unlock code for my Ipod touch and really need a default code.


There is not a default code to unlock any locked iPod. This would defeat the purpose of the iPod's security.

You can unlock the iPod touch by putting the iPod touch into recovery mode, connecting the iPod to the computer it was last synced with, and then restoring the iPod.

To do this:
1) Turn the iPod off.
2) Hold down the Home button and plug the iPod into the computer it was last synced with.
3) Release the Home button when the iTunes image appears on the iPod's screen.
4) Start up iTunes and after it recognizes that the iPod is in recovery mode, follow the on screen instructions to restore the iPod.

Note: This may cause you to lose some of the data stored on the iPod.

If this doesn't work, call Apple Customer Support.

I forgot my password to my 8gb ipod touch


Hello.
Welcome to Fixya Community.

You need to restore it with iTunes, but you can't restore an iPod While its Locked With a password, well in order to Force it to Restore you shud put it on Recovery Mode.
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. We have detected an itouch in recovery mode.

From there you can restore as normal via iTunes.
and that will reset you configuration including Your Password.
Thank you For Using Fixya.
Good Luck.
