This usually happens if the membrane of the sleep/wake button deteriorates and the gold plated contacts between membrane and logic board do no longer establish good contact.
There are specialized online tutorials with iPod Repair instructions that will guide you through the steps of taking it apart and reinforcing the contact or replacing the button altogether otherwise you'll have to send it to any third party iPod repair service and they'll replace the membrane for you.

How o i undisable my ipod it isnt working


Can you be more specific?
You can try holding the top and home button at the same time for 15 seconds to do a light reset
If that doesn't work, you can hold the top and home button for 1 minute to do a hard reset, in which you will have to re-sink all your files with itunes, so if you do that, you might want to back up your files with itunes first

Lost Password for iPod Touch or iPhone?


To bypass a lost or forgotten password on your iPod Touch or iPhone, you'll need to go into Recovery mode:

( First method that worked)

You do this by plugging the iPod touch into a computer then hold down the power button for about 5 seconds until you see the red slider button to power it off, slide to power off the iPod touch. Then press and hold both the power button and the home button at the same time until you see the Apple logo, then release the power button but keep holding in the home button. Hold the home button in until you see the iTunes logo on the iPod touch, then let go of it. You can then restore your iPod using any computer but keep in mind that you will lose everything.

( Shorter method that I'm told will work, but untested)

Make sure your iPod Touch is completely turned off and unconnected from your computer. Hold down the Home button, and connect it to your USB cable. It will automatically turn on when you connect the cable. Just keep holding the Home button until the Connect to iTunes logo appears. That's it...

Ipod home button is stuck down


iPod home buttons fail all the time. If the button feels stuck in the down position, you no longer feel that distinct "pop" then it is a design issue and should be taken to the apple store for warranty work. If the iPod is out of warranty, then there are several shops that service home buttons. If the home button still "pops" as it should, then the issue is with moisture exposure. Sweat and wet hands while using the home button allow the moisture to seep into the home button area, eventually causing a corrosion buildup that slowly deteriorates the home buttons ability to do its simple job, after repeated exposure, it just has too much corrosion and stops working. If you of warranty period, check out my home button repairs, all with a 15 month warranty against defects, best price in the industry http://www.zfixit.com/ipod-touch-repairs/ c3f42093-2937-4241-8c7c-3b7ddbc184e5.jpg

My ipod touch wont work


If iPod touch won't turn on, or if the display freezes or doesn't respond
  • iPod touch may need charging. See "Charging the Battery" in the iPod touch Features Guide.
  • Press and hold the Home button for at least six seconds, until the application you were using quits.
  • If that doesn't work, turn off iPod touch and turn it on again. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button on top of iPod touch for a few seconds until a red slider appears, and then drag the slider. Then press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.
  • If that doesn't work, reset iPod touch. Press and hold both the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
If iPod touch continues to freeze or not respond after you reset it
  • Reset iPod touch settings. From the Home screen choose Settings > General > Reset > Reset All Settings. All your preferences are reset, but your data and media are left untouched.
  • If that doesn't work, erase all content on iPod touch. From the Home screen choose Settings > General > Reset > "Erase All Content and Settings." All your preferences are reset, and all your data and media are removed from iPod touch.

To reset the iPhone or iPod Touch, press and hold down the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button simultaneously at the same time for at least ten seconds, then the LCD display will clear and the Apple logo appears on the black background. When Apple logo appears, reset is done.

Why isnt my ipod turning on after i downloaded an upgrade for it?


Try this
  1. Press and hold the Home button while reconnecting the USB cable to iPod. When you reconnect the USB to iPod, the device should then power on. 
  2. Continue holding the Home button while iPod starts up. While starting up, you will see the Apple logo.
  3. When you see "Connect to iTunes" on the screen, you can release the Home button and iTunes will display the recovery mode message:
  4. Restore and it'll download ~240mb firmware and you're done

well if your ipod wont turn on at all, its probably your home button that is stuck. If your home button isnt stuck, connect it to the computer and then restore it.

Syncing my itouch with itunes


Itunes can sync infinite ipods and should have no trouble, so there isnt a problem with having two ipods. Try this: turn off your ipod, hold the home button, and plug it into itunes while still holding the home button until a picture of the itunes symbol appears with a cable under it. itunes should say "ipod found in restore mode". this will get rid of any previous users' settings, and hopefully fix anything preventing itunes from syncing with your ipod.
