Hi dballd,

generally the ipod touch will only respond to a finger moving across the screen.

Your problem however is a known hardware fault. Take it back to the store you purchased it from or preferably an apple retail store, and they should replace it for you on the spot. Just inform them that you have updated and restored the firmware several times.

It must be under warranty though. You have one year from the purchase date, unless you also purchased applecare.

How do i unlock my ipod touch


Apple's iPod touch, a portable music player with a touchscreen display, is powered by a built-in rechargeable battery that provides up to 40 hours of audio playback and up to seven hours of video playback when fully charged. To conserve power, the iPod touch locks by default after a minute of not being used. If you want to use your iPod touch after it locks, you will need to unlock it. You might need to type a password, depending on how you've configured the device.

Press the "Home" button, located below the screen, or press the silver "Sleep/Wake" switch located at the top of the device. Swipe a finger across the "Slide to Unlock" slider on the screen. The iPod touch unlocks. Press the "Home" button or press the "Sleep/Wake" switch when you have enabled passcode protection on your iPod, then swipe a finger across the "Slide to Unlock" slider on the screen. The "Enter a Passcode" message appears. Type in your passcode, and then tap "OK." The iPod touch unlocks. Forgot Your Password b> Connect the iPod Touch to your computer using the USB cable. Wait for iTunes to open and sync with your computer. Eject your iPod Touch from the computer by clicking the "Eject" icon beside the iPod's entry in the "Devices" section of iTunes. Disconnect your iPod Touch from the USB cable. Your iPod Touch will be turned on and will be unlocked. Tap the "General" menu on the iPod Touch. Tap "Passcode Lock," and then tap either "Turn Passcode Off" or "Change Passcode." If you tap "Change Passcode," you can then enter a new passcode.
Hope it helps

My Ipod touch screen suddenly began to display everything huge. What happened?


Hi mariaelenaga,

To set a minimum font size for messages:


Choose "Mail, Contacts, Calendars" > Minimum Font Size, then choose Small, Medium, Large, Extra Large, or Giant.


Also, you may need to try the following:


Restarting and Resetting iPod touch

If something isn't working right, restarting, force quitting an application, or resetting iPod touch will likely solve the problem.


Restart iPod touch: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the red slider appears.

Slide your finger across the slider to turn off iPod touch. To turn iPod touch back on, press and hold the Sleep/Wake until the Apple logo appears.


If you can't turn off iPod touch or if the problem continues, you may need to reset. A

reset should be done only if turning iPod touch off and on doesn't resolve the problem.


Force quit an application: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button on top of iPod touch

for a few seconds until a red slider appears, and then press and hold the Home button

until the application quits.


Reset iPod touch: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the
same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.

This information was sourced from the iPod Touch official user guide at:

Hope this helps.

Best regards,

CellPhBuddy.

I went to use my ipod touch this morning and the touch screen just wont work. The home and hold button work but it doesn't help because it won't let me slide to unlock. I tried holding down the home and...


hELLO THERE:
Many people think that it's a pressure problem, and the fact that the iPod is not picking up the pressure you apply when you touch the screen to perform a task. However, the screen on the iPod Touch is not pressure-activated but rather, heat-activated. This means that when you touch the iPod screen, the sensors inside the Touch pick up on the heat from your finger and follow it to wherever it goes. If it can't pick up the heat, it won't be able to do much for you. Luckily, because it's the heat sensor, the problem can sometimes be very easily corrected.
Oftentimes, this problem occurs when people are outside on a very warm day and are trying to use their iPod Touch. Because the surrounding air is just as warm, or hotter, than the temperature from the tip of the finger, the sensors can't differentiate and so, they don't respond when you touch the screen. So, just move to a cooler place and you should be able to operate your iPod Touch again. Some also suggest turning your iPod off and on and waiting a few minutes before trying again to see if it will work.
Unfortunately, if those solutions don't work for you, you might be out of luck and might just have a defective screen. If this happens, the only solution sadly is to return your iPod Touch to Apple and hopefully, you're still under warranty to get a new one.

Touch screen not responding


Guaranteed Fix: My Samsung Impression touch screen would not work. I could touch some parts of my screen, but it wouldn't match up to my target. I read many solutions about callibrating which didn't work (hard to get to when your touch screen doesn't respond). I did a hard reset. I left out in sun though it hadn't been wet. Nothing worked from the suggestions. I called my wireless carrier who just wanted me to upgrade. I was at the mall and just dropped in to look at phones and the sales lady suggested I take it to a different carrier who had a phone repairman. I did and it works like a charm for $65. He put a digitizer in it and he had several Impressions waiting to be worked on with the same problem. I had never seen this suggestion on any forums, but this is the ONLY thing that worked.
