You are going to need a computer with the latest version of iTunes on it and unfortunately this will fully erase all data on the device Its called Forced Recovery. So with the device plugged into your PC, iTunes open, if it shows up in iTunes eject it, or cancel the prompt to restore a device in recovery mode.
Hold down the Power button for 3 seconds
Without releasing the power button, also hold the Home button for 10 seconds
Without releasing the home button, release the power button and keep holding the Home button for About 20 seconds.
iTunes will detect an iPod/iPhone in recovery mode, let off button and set down device and hit RESTORE in iTunes.
there will be volume rockr button on left side of the device to turn up and down the volume..or if you tap on the screen while playing music you'll see a onscreen slider with volume icon to increase and decrease the volume..
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.
^This works too, but if you have important data on it you can hold down the on/off button and the square button until it goes off , and then press the square button to get it to turn back on. I had to do it too :(
you have to hit play again after you unplug the headphones and turn the volume up using the buttons on the left side of the device, if you have no buttons on the left side then you have the 1st Gen iPod touch which you can only listen to with headphones.
Try reflashing the firmware for your device you can find the latest firmware and flashing utilities from the manufacturer?s website. Make sure that you back your music up first because when you do this you are setting it back to factory settings. That will be the only way
I would recommend restoring your ipod. Below are the steps on how to do this just in case you need them.
