My iPod touch 4th gen is disabled and won't shut off, what do I do?


The iPod 4G (fourth generation) is easy to restore to factory settings. This may reinstall the software, and it always wipes all music, video and other data from the iPod. Restoring is the most effective way to fix problems with the iPod that haven't been fixed through traditional troubleshooting. You will not be able to retrieve data from your iPod 4G once it's restored, so make sure you back up your information first.

Plug your iPod 4G into your computer with its dock connector USB cable. Install the most recent version of iTunes and open iTunes. Wait a moment for your iPod to appear in the side bar. Click on your iPod in the side bar and select "Restore." A pop-up window will ask if you're sure you want to clear your iPod and restore to factory settings. Click "Continue" and enter your password, if prompted. Leave the iPod untouched and on a flat surface while it restores to original settings. It's important that you don't try to disconnect or use the iPod while it's restoring. You'll see a progress bar either on the iPod or your computer that indicates how far along the process is. Select your new syncing settings (automatic sync or manual) when prompted after the restore is complete.

Ipod touch won't stay on


First, there are possibility that your iPod just out of battery, not enough to boot.

You might want to turn on and immediately connects to computer or if possible, to the direct charger.


If it turned on, wait for while and then go iTune and restore.

If not, you can at least locate the local apple store and let them take look at it.


They might ask $ for repair but it shouldn't be so expensive.


you might try resetting your iPod (hold down SELECT+MENU for a few seconds) or restoring your iPod back to factory settings in iTunes just to make sure that it's not some type of software glitch?


hope this helps

My ipod touch is locked and i cant remember the code


Thanks for asking your question with Fixya Support. I will be glad to assist you.

Unfortunately if your iPod Touch is locked and you cannot recall the pass code to unlock it, you will have to perform a factory restore, in order to clear your iPod Touch of that previous pass code.

The good thing is, even though you will wipe all your current data on your iPod Touch, after the factory restore, you can restore your most current back up through iTunes to restore the data back to your iPod.

To restore your iPod Touch is simple:
* Be sure you restore your iPod Touch on the same computer or notebook that your previous iPod Touch backup files or stored.

* Now, make sure you are using the latest version of iTunes.
• Be sure your iPod Touch is correctly connected to computer or notebook .

• Finally, in the left column under DEVICES, click on your iPod Touch, then click on Restore under the Summary tab.

* Allow the process to complete and your iPod Touch will be restored to its original factory default settings.

* Now simply re-sync your iPod Touch with iTunes and this is where your last sync now comes into play. When you sync after the restore, iTunes will look for your iPod Touch's previous backup and per your permission, will restore your most recent backup to your device.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This time, when you set up your pass code... Make sure to write it down somewhere or in a place that is easily accessible and a in a place that you won't soon forget.

Thanks for contacting Fixya.

Regards,

I forgot the password to my ipod touch


There is only one way, you must restore the ipod which wipes out everything if you forgot it.

Updating and Restoring iPod touch Software
You can use iTunes to update or reinstall iPod touch software, restore default settings, and delete all data on iPod touch.
• If you update, the iPod touch software is updated. Your downloaded applications, settings, and data aren’t affected.
Note: In some cases, an update may also include restoring iPod touch.
• If you restore, the latest version of iPod touch software is reinstalled, settings are restored to their defaults, and data stored on iPod touch is deleted, including downloaded applications, songs, videos, contacts, photos, calendar information, and any other data. If you’ve backed up iPod touch with iTunes on your computer, you can restore data from the backup at the end of the restore process.
Deleted data is no longer accessible via the iPod touch user interface, but isn’t erased from your iPod touch. For information about erasing all content and settings, see “Resetting iPod touch” on page 122.
Update or restore iPod touch:
1 Make sure you have an Internet connection and have installed the latest version of iTunes from www.apple.com/itunes.
2 Connect iPod touch to your computer.
3 Select iPod touch in the iTunes sidebar and click the Summary tab.
4 Click “Check for Update.” iTunes tells you if there’s a newer version of the iPod touch software available.
5 Click Update to install the latest version of the software. Or click Restore to restore. Follow the onscreen instructions to complete the restore process.
