Screen won't work correctly

I have an 8 GB ipod touch second generation and when I turn it on, I slide the gray bar at the bottom. Then, it asks for my passcode, as usual, and when I type it in, the numbers won't show up or anything. Why won't the screen work properly anymore?

I had the same problem. not only that, when i held the power button on the top, it wouldnt completely turn off! music played, but i wasnt able to ajust the music volume.
i looked at the problem with not being able to go to the menu, and i remembered that was what happened before this problem
the solution for that was to hold BOTH the home and top power button for about half a minute, and it would restart it.
i tried it, and it worked immediately!

I have had the same problem. Did you drop it at all? If not, there was a problem tha pertained to some of the iPhones where the top third to two-thirds of the touch screen suddenly stopped working. Perhaps the problem extends to the iPod touch's manufactured during the same time period.

I would take your iPod touch to the nearest Apple store, set up an appointment with a apple "Genious" and have them evaluate the device. It may be eligible for replacement.

Good luck!

How do i fix my ipod touch if my bottom screen wont slide and the top part will slide bc i cant get into my ipod

Well, if you put it in a freezer at all, I wouldn't expect it to even function properly... ever.

But regardless, you can try pressing harder. If it still doesn't work, the digitizer might not be recognizing the bottom half of the screen from sustaining too much damage.

Unfreezing ipod otuch 2nd generation

Hi linda_wat834
When the Apple Logo is stuck
If this happens, put the iPod into Disk Mode through the diagnostic menu. Then connect the iPod to your computer and update or restore the iPod.
Sometimes you can get away with just updating the iPod, so try that first, but usually you have to restore the iPod .
As always make backups of your music files, because the restore procedure will eliminate them.

The slide bar will not slide to unlock on my ipod touch 2nd generation. I've tried restarting. It holds a charge and I can play it on my docking station. I can't use it by itself.

I had the same problem with my iPod touch 3rd Generation, the slide bar will not slide to unlock. I could however use the slide to power off at the top of the screen. I tried everything from rebooting it to a full restore and nothing worked. I finally took the Touch Screen Glass Digitizer off and the ribbon cable that connects to the board had come loose. I pluged it back in and everything worked again.

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 touch (2nd Gen) with water damage

The touch screen is not physically attached to the screen, if water was anywhere near the bottom of the ipod it may have triggered the water damage unit inside the bottom. Water also may have leaked into the unit frying the circuits. You'll have to visit an Apple store or for repair.

Try to reset it. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until either the Apple logo or battery symbol appears. If the battery symbol appears, continue to charge iPod touch until it is fully charged.

If this doesn't work, try restoring the iPod
