Question about Apple iPod touch

Itouch applications won't turn on.

I have installed a couple free applications onto my Itouch. They have worked fine in the past 6 days i have owned the itouch. But today for some reason, i will touch an application and it will stay on the screen for 3 seconds, it won't load or anything, and then it will go to the home screen..anyone have any suggestions or ways to fix this? I went into my Itunes, and it says that i only have one application on my itouch, but i have like 6 and so i downloaded 1 of the 6 i have on my itouch again to see if that would fix it, but it still only stays on for 3 seconds and then goes back to the home screen. please help.

    New user, 2nd gen iTouch just a few days old. I downloaded two games the other day which worked fine (one free, one paid), but since then, when I touch the screen to load, it starts loading, but then returns to iTouch home screen. So the game won't load. In iTunes on my computer, I see the two apps in my Library under Applications, but there doesn't seem to be any action to perform from the iTunes interface.

    Further to my previous post, for some reason, now my apps (games) will load. The only thing I did differently was download a third app (a free version of one of my paid apps). I then opened that new free app, and it opened successfully. Then I went to my two old apps (one free, one paid) and they now both open successfully. Please note, I was always connected to WiFi, so I don't think that's the difference.

    Ditto with my iTouch. I only have the Facebook App and Flixster App on my iTouch. They worked fine for a couple of weeks, and now I tap them, it seems like I'm going to the application, but it just returns to the home screen.

    When I try to open my games, it loads for about 3 seconds and then goes back to the screen. Im aware that this has to be a system problem because it is happening to a lot of other people. How do i fix this or can i consult with the Mac company to get it fixed? PLEASE HELP!!

I had exactly the same problem, you have to sync them on itunes. Plug in your itouch, open itunes and make sure it is the version with an applications section in the libary. Then click on your itouch in Devices go to the end applications tab and you have to sync them. This worked for me.

I have a Toshiba Satellite A665-S6088. The last time I used it was last night and everything worked fine. It works with Windows 8.1, it has for a few months now, never had any problems until now. No...

Unplug the unit from ac power. Remove the battery. Wait a minute. Press and hold down the power button for 30 seconds. (Yes, I know, nothing will happen visible). Replace battery. Plug unit back in. Now try the power button and see if the unit resets. Sometimes this helps when all else fails especially with a computer which has "hung up" like yours. Let me know if this worked!

I have a 1970's Panasonic Flip Clock Radio. (Model RC6530) The radio works just fine, but the flp clock stopped flipping. There is power going to the unit. I can also hear a low hum from the flip...

It looks like your problem might be an easy fix, at least. If the gear train between the motor and clock got stripped, you'd be in a bit more trouble. If the motor just isn't spinning, remove it from the side of the clock housing. There are 2 screws (or nuts) holding it in place. When you get it off, the cover for the motor will also be off. Apply some 3 in 1 oil, or perhaps just a tiny bit of penetrating oil, and give it a spin. From what I've read, it should do just fine. A lot of people use wd40, but I understand that can gum up over time.

This is a "at your own risk" type of repair, but as long as you unplug it before dismantling the radio, I think you'll be fine.

Your radio should have come with a receiver of some sort for the radio signals to set itself. I had this same issue with my clock when the battery in the receiver died ... try replacing this too. It took me forever to figure out what it was because I had forgotten that it had its own radio receiver ... then once I remembered it existed, I had to find it, but replacing the battery fixed the problem. Hope that helps :-)
