You'll need to restore it. Dock it, when it shows up in iTunes select Restore. If it never gets there run a search on Apple.com for iPod Rescue mode.

Why does my ipod go to my home screen while i am in the middle of doing something?


Ipods tend to glitch out when too much memory is being used. Try deleting some things you don't need and see if that helps.

*My ipod does this as well. Sometimes it can just be certain apps.

I have facebook on my PC I want to get it on iPod and it keeps telling me my password is not correct


If you've been using your computer to access Facebook, you might be interested in accessing it while you're on the go with your iPod Touch, a portable multimedia device made by Apple.
As of May 2011, Apple sells four iPod models (the Shuffle, the Nano, the Classic and the Touch), of which only the iPod Touch connects to the Internet.
The iPod Touch has two built-in cameras, and a 3.5-inch touch-screen display with a virtual keyboard that you use to type messages.
The device connects to the Internet via Wi-Fi, so you can use Facebook on your iPod Touch with the free Facebook app.

Press the "Home" button on your iPod Touch, located below the screen.
Tap "Settings" on the home screen, and then tap "Wi-Fi."
Tap the "Wi-Fi" option setting to "On." Tap the "Ask to Join Networks" option setting to "On."
Move to a location that has Wi-Fi, such as at a business or home computer network, or a public-access site such as at a shopping mall or cafe.
Type the password at the prompt if one is required to join a Wi-Fi network.


Press the "Home" button to return to the home screen.
Tap the "App Store" icon. Tap "Search," then type "Facebook" in the search bar, and then tap "Search." Tap "Facebook" from the results.
Tap the word "Free" in the Facebook app description screen. Tap "Install."
Type your Apple ID at the prompt.
The Facebook app downloads and installs on your iPod Touch.

Press the "Home" button to return to the home screen.
Tap the "Facebook" app icon on the home screen.
Type your name and password, and then tap "Go" to log in to your Facebook account.

Tap the icon of nine squares at the top of the screen to display Facebook features, such as "Messages," "Photos" or "News Feed."
Tap "News Feed" to read your News Feed.
Tap "Messages" to see your messages.
Tap the icon of the pen and paper to write a new message.
Tap "Chat" to chat with friends, tap "Events" to see your events, and tap "Notes" to write a note.
Tap "Friends" to see your friends, look at friends' pages and see friends' requests.
Tap "Photos" to see your photos, and tap the plus sign at the top of the screen to make a new photo album.

Tap "Profile," then tap the camera icon if you want to upload a photo or video.
Tap "Take Photo or Video," then shoot a picture or video with your iPod Touch's camera, then tap "Use."
If you shot a picture, tap "Write a Caption."
Type a caption, then tap "Done." Tap "Upload" to upload the photo to Facebook.
If you shot a video, type a title and a description for the video, then tap "Upload" to upload the video to Facebook.
Tap "Choose from Library" to use a photo or video already on your iPod.
A list of your photo albums appears.
Tap an album, and then tap a thumbnail of a video or a photo.
Type a caption for the picture or a title and description for a video, and then tap "Upload."

Help please tell how to exit recovery mode


How to Fix an iPod Touch Stuck in Recovery Mode With a Free Program
An iPod Touch's "Recovery Mode" is for alleviating major operating system issues. Recovery Mode rolls back your iPod's operating system, stripping problematic updates and downloads from the unit. The goal of this total system recovery is to revert the iPod to a stable, usable version. Before you use Recovery Mode, exhaust other troubleshooting methods. In some cases, Recovery Mode is triggered automatically after a failed system update or system restore. When it goes into Recovery Mode automatically, you cannot use your iPod until you complete the recovery process. You can get your iPod Touch out of Recovery Mode using Apple's free iTunes software.

Things You'll Need
-Apple iTunes-USB cable


Instructions
1 Turn on your computer and open iTunes. If you are prompted to download any new iTunes updates, install the updates before proceeding.
2 Plug an iPod USB cable into your computer. Do not plug the other end into your iPod Touch yet.
3 Turn off your iPod Touch. If the iPod Touch is already shut down, skip this step.
4 Press and hold the Home button on your iPod Touch, and plug the other end of the USB cable into your iPod Touch.
5 Release the Home button after you see a white USB icon and the iTunes logo appear on your iPod Touch's screen. At this time, a pop-up should appear on your computer screen, explaining that the software has detected an iPod in Recovery Mode.
6 Click "OK."
7 Click on the iPod Touch from underneath the "Devices" heading on the left-hand side of your screen.
8 Click on the "Home" tab, and then click "Restore." Once it's restored, your iPod Touch goes out of Recovery Mode and you can start using it again. The restoration process takes a few minutes. Do not disconnect your iPod Touch until a prompt appears, letting you know the system restored successfully.

I restored my i touch but now it only show on screen connect to I tunes and will not do anything when i do connect it


You may not have restored it properly. Try This -

RESTORING IPOD TOUCH:
Try plugging it into your computer. Press and hold both the sleep and home buttons
at the same time until the screen goes black (can take longer than 10 seconds) then
let go of the sleep button (the button on the top of the unit) while keeping the
home button held in (the button on the front of the iPod). Keep the home button
held in until your computer recognizes new hardware. You should hear some sort of
sound coming from your computer speakers. That and the "installing new hardware"
notice should come up in your taskbar (this is where you computer shows the clock).
Let go of the home button once this happens. Open up iTunes and then restore it.
Keep in mind, that by restoring it, you will lose all data!!!!!

My iPod touch keeps going to the home screen


You should restore completely, but just note that this will wipe all of the data on the phone.

Turn the iPhone off by holding the button on the top and sliding the red bar to shut down the iPhone.

Now go into iTunes on your computer,

While holding down the iPhone circle button, plug the iPhone into the cable connected to your USB port.

Continue holding down the iphone button until the computer in itunes tells you that it has discovered an iPhone in recovery mode. From there, you can just click on the restore button. It will download the latest firmware for your iPhone (your iPod) and will apply it as well as perform a factory reset. Once this is finished, the iPod has been factory restored just like when it was new.


No matter what anyone says, the problem will eventually force you to do a restore anyway. There might be a few temporary patchups but when you start seeing panics on the system apps especially, there is something off. Restore and your set! Good luck!!
