How do I find if my iPod touch battery is dead?


<p>When the iPod touch battery dies, you cannot do anything with the device. You will receive a warning on the screen of the iPod touch, when 5 percent of the battery turns on the device. Connect the device to a power source as soon as possible to load and prevent the battery goes dead. When the battery dies, the unit will shut down and will be connected to a power and charged before you can use <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Press the iPod touch "Sleep / Wake" button, located along the upper side of the machine. If your iPod does not care, this is an indicator that the battery is dead. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Connect a charging cable to charge your iPod and connect the USB cable to a power of high power. High-power USB ports directly on your computer tower or, if the hardware usually found in the tower on the monitor, the monitor itself. The iPod touch screen shows a big red battery icon on the far left of the icon, indicating that the battery was empty. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Press the "Sleep / Wake" to see if the iPod is connected. If so, check the battery life, looking at the battery icon in the upper right corner of the screen. When the icon appears white, the battery is full when the icon is half black, the battery is almost dead, and if the battery is almost dead, you will receive a warning. If the iPod does not start, the battery is completely dead. In this case, your iPod into electronics store and have the battery replaced. <br />

How do i reset my ipod touch


If you are talking about resetting after your iPod Touch has hung, you need to press and hold the top and home buttons until the screen goes black. If the iPod Touch displays the "Slide to power off" message, ignore it and continue to hold down both buttons until the screen goes black.

Turn on the iPod Touch by pressing the top and home buttons together again just briefly. It will take a while for the iPod Touch to start up from this type of reset.

If you are looking to restore the iPod Touch to factory defaults, you need to start iTunes on your computer and plug your iPod Touch into your computer with the USB cable that came with it. Click on the iPod Touch from the list on the left side and press the "Restore" button.

What should i do


Thank you for contacting Fixya.com with your iPod Touch question Jeremy, I will be glad to assist you.

In regards to your iPod Touch 8G, if it is not starting up, here some steps recommend you try in order to resolve this issue:

First, try connecting your iPod Touch into a different USB port of your computer or notebook to see if it turns on.

If that does not work, then try connecting the device using your USB dock cable with the power socket adapter, into a wall socket and try turning the iPod Touch on.

If this does not work, try connecting your iPod Touch to your computer once again and see if it at least shows up in iTunes under "Devices".

If it does, but the screen still does not come on, try this procedure:

What you can do, in order to resolve this issue, is start by resetting your iPod Touch.
(Note: this does not remove any settings, data or media you have installed in your device)
• To perform a hard reset, press and hold your Sleep and Home Menu buttons for approximately 10 seconds.
• If you your screen turns on, the goes black that is ok- just release both keys.

• If it does come on, the next screens you should see after the black screen, is the Apple logo screen followed by the main screen.

If your iPod Touch remains unresponsive during this entire process, I would have to classify this as a hardware issue and you will need to take your iPod Touch into to your local Apple retail store Genius Bar (need to make a reservation at: apple.com/retail) or your local Apple authorized service provider and have a diagnosis performed on the device to determine why it is not powering on for you.

If you have more questions, please do not hesitate to reply back to this post.

Thank you.

Regards,

When I turn on the ipod it says locked and disabled and connect to itunes! what do I do to unlock and reconnect??


Plug the iPod touch into the computer with the USB Dock connector. Once it is connected to the computer turn off the iPod touch by holding the power button down on the top of the device until you see the "Slide to Power Off" on the screen. Power Off the Device. Once the device is off (and still plugged in) hold down the home button and keep holding it while pressing the power button to turn on the device. Continue holding the home button until you see the screen on the iPod Touch Say "Connect to iTunes" at which point you should launch iTunes on your PC/Mac if it has not already loaded.

Getting message error -40 cant connect to itunes on my ipod 2g a1288


1. First, Open up iTunes, plug in your iPod Touch/iPhone to the CPU's USB port. Turn on your CPU's speaker and make sure it is loud enough that you can hear it.

2. Hold down the Home button (top left for iPod Touch and top right for the iPhone with the screen facing you) and the Power button (located on the front bottom of your iPod Touch/iPhone) simutaneously, until the screen goes black and the device turns off. (past the red slider/slide to power off screen)

3. Now let go of the Power button, but continue to hold the Home button. Your iPod Touch/iPhone should have turned off and the screen should not be on.

4. After around ~10-20 seconds, you will hear a noise (beep/ding) from your CPU as if it had just recognized a new hardware device, now iTunes should recognize it in DFU mode.

5. After iTunes recognizes the iPod Touch/iPhone, let go of the Home button otherwise it will go into recovery mode and you will have to do the entire DFU process over again.

6. You will know when you have put your iPod Touch/iPhone correctly into DFU mode when the display is blank and that you do not have anything on your device.

7. Restore ipod using itunes

Ipod keep freezing with only the apple showing on screen...wont do anything else...says port is not found


1) Start iTunes.

2) Power the device on by holding the sleep/wake and home button for about 10 seconds. Release the sleep/wake button, but keep holding the home button.


3) If you did it correctly, the device will be showing either a connect to itunes screen (recovery mode) or a black screen (DFU mode) We are trying for DFU mode here, but recovery may work too. Connect the ipod to your computer. iTunes will tell you that it has detected an iPhone or iPod touch in recovery mode.


4) If you see the iTunes icon and cable on your iPhone, your device is not in DFU mode, but in recovery mode. Your device's screen will be black when you are in DFU mode. I always have to try this several times so succeed.

5) Connect your device back to your Pc/Mac and press SHIFT+CLICK (pc) or COMMAND+ CLICK on the restore button.

6) Select the firmware version you'd like to install from your computer. You can google for ipod touch firmare to download the file, or just let it update right from apple.
7) Wait for a couple of minutes and your iPhone/iPod will be as new.

IPod touch screen is black, but connects to iTunes and all.


Your screen is fu.k.d up, cause it shouldn't be black.  Take it back to the Apple store and they will exchange it out for you.  One caveat:  You will be denied an even exchange if they say your unit is water damaged.
