Did you re-boot your ipod by flicking the hold switch over and back...then holding in the middle button and menu together until the Apple logo appears and release.
NONE OF THESE ACTIONS ERASE YOUR STORED INFO.

Ipod froze


A white screen on an iPod Touch is the sign of a generic error, meaning you won't get a specific error message. Usually when this happens the white screen won't change and the iPod is frozen on that screen. Apple Support outlines a specific series of steps to take to deal with this problem, from turning the iPod Touch off to completely reinstalling the operating system if necessary.

What the White Screen Means The white screen is a sign that a software error has occurred in the iPod Touch. Unless you received an error message first, it's usually something near the root level of the iPod's operating system that caused the iPod to cease functioning normally. Rather than shut off completely, it goes to this white screen to let you know there's been an error. Unfortunately you usually lose unsaved information when this occurs. b> Resetting b> Try turning the iPod Touch off, then on again. This is the simplest way to reset your iPod Touch. If it remains stuck on the white screen, force a reset by holding down the Sleep button (top right corner) for about 10 seconds. The screen will go dark, then the Apple logo will appear. If it turns off and doesn't turn on again, the battery may be too low. b> Restore b> If a manual reset doesn't work and the screen remains stuck on a white screen, you'll need to restore the iPod to reinstall its operating system. Plug your iPod, via its charger cable, into your computer. Open iTunes and click on your iPod, then the "Restore" button on the main screen. b> Problematic Apps b> If you consistently receive a white screen while using a particular app, the app may be faulty or installed incorrectly. Try re-syncing the app to your iPod Touch and see if that solves the problem. Otherwise, you may need to delete the app to avoid the white screen problem.

Ipod touch half white screen


This is actually really easy to do.

This called a hard reboot.


All you have to do is hold the home button and the power button down at the same time for 30 to 40 seconds or until you get a Apple sign on your screen.

This will reboot your ipod.


If this does not work there is one other thing you can try to do.

Hook your ipod touch up to your computer that you use itunes on.


Itunes will detect a problem with your ipod.

You can try a restore of your ipod from your computer.


If this does not work its time to return or send your ipod back to apple so they can repair it.


hope this helps

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.

How can i reset my ipod?


Please follow the below steps to reset the iPod.
  1. Press and hold the "Sleep/Wake" button. This is the main power button on the top left-hand corner of the device.
  2. Press and hold the "Home" button while still holding "Sleep/Wake." The home button is the main button on the front of your iPod touch, indicated by a white square inside of a circular black button.
  3. Hold both buttons until the Apple logo appears on your screen. Resetting can take upwards of 10 seconds. Once the logo appears, your iPod touch reboots by itself.

Thanks for understanding.

This problem is called the white screen of death. To solve this, you should press the Home button and the Power button together for about 30 - 40 seconds. This process is called hard reboot. You can also try to restore the factory settings by plugging the device to you computer and restore it using itunes.

Thanks!

My ipod touch will not turrn on or reboot whats wrong?


Checklist to see if your iPod needs a reboot:

. Your iPod is charged.

*If not, you might have to plug in your iPod, and make sure the computer can't go to sleep while it's charging. The iPod won't charge if the iPod is locked, so no orange.

Charging your iPod problem solution, that also works.

* Your iPod might need to completely drain in battery source before you can charge it. If that's the case, leave the iPod unplugged for 24 hours before trying to charge it. That will make sure the power is drained and your iPod is ready to be charged.

2. Your iPod is unlocked. Slide the button back and fourth a couple of times, just to make sure it's working.

3. And your iPod still has a black screen, frozen logo, or white screen.


Rebooting your iPod.

1. Run a cold boot (shut your computer down, then turn it back on) on your computer. * If your iPod crashed because of the software freezing, or the computer crashed.

2. Open your Apple Software.

3. Plug in your iPod. Make sure that you plug in your iPod into your computer, and that the plugs are secure. Your computer should detect your iPod, black screen or not.

4. Set down the iPod. Take your iPod and put it on a flat surface.

5. Press firmly. Take your fingers, and firmly press the middle button, and the menu button. It will read menu on the top button of the click wheel, and the center circle of your click wheel is what your looking for.

* Make sure your fingers are planted on the top of the center button, close to the menu button, and you are pressing it together.

6. Count to 8.

Now you should see an Apple logo pop up on your iPod screen.

Sometimes you need to try it a few times, to get it to work.

It should be synchronizing and happily you should be on your way.

*You also can reboot your iPod without it being plugged into the computer, I always do mine while it's plugged in.

you have to erease all the dta on mines and put the music and everything back on,

My old ipod touch will not let me change its date and time settings. also, when i press the top button the screen goes white and after a few seconds it freezes. i have tried reseting it a million times....


if u have downloaded any music of limewire or a torrent u could have downloaded a "infected" file so u need to update your firmware because it is probably "buggy" so it needs to be replaced.

if u dont want to update to a newer version AKA, 1.1.5,2.1.1 and 2.2.1 then u need to downgrade by downloading a firmware from a clean website and then when u go to refresh u have to do this.

1) download new firmware.

2) plug ipod into comp.

3) push and HOLD SHIFT click RESTORE.

4) a menu will pop up and then it will ask u to find the downloaded firmware hopefully u downloaded it to desktop and click the downloaded firmware and click OK.

5) it will restore and it will say restoring new firmware. so on and so forth..
