    Ok.. So you just have a blank screen? Is the backlight in its usual color or does it look different.. like just a white panel or something like that? Please provide this info so that I can help you out.

    Regards,
    Sai.

My son updated my 2g ipod touch on his (older?) computer. It is frozen now & won't go past a screen w/the itunes symbol & the usb plug. It will not restore. I have uninstalled & reinstalled...


  • This isn't an iTunes problem. While the iPod is displaying this logo, you need to plug it in to a computer that has iTunes open beforehand.
  • Try using another computer with iTunes installed, or another USB cable for the iPod. Try to restart by holding the sleep and home buttons for about 10 seconds.
  • If this still doesn't work, take the iPod to your local Apple store, where they can check for any hardware problems that may have occurred.

My screen is just white


Try to reset it. 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 iPod touch until it is fully charged.

If this doesn't work, try restoring the iPod from within itunes.

I have an apple ipod 8 gb. It flashes the apple


try holding the menu button and the centre button at the same time for a few seconds until the apple logo shows (this shouldnt be flashing), this should unfreeze the ipod, if not, try plugging it into your computer (install itunes first) see if your computer can find it, if it does open the ipod screen in itunes and look for an ipod update, perform the update (if there is one available) this will reset it to factory default with the newer software, if theres no update try to restore ipod.
If these tricks dont work, im afraid its a trip to the apple store, good luck
