Not to worry...As you can see this is just a loose contact....Since you seem like a novice user attempting to fix it yourself is not advisable.Just get someone who knows electronics to fix it for you...
And one more thing dont touch any part inside the computer with bare hands.Walking on a dry floor will charge your body to a static voltage of upto 5000v and is more than enough to damage the motherboard...
For now just get someone to fix that power cable for you!

How to unlock the iPod Touch, if you forget the password

<p>The screen lock is available on the iPod Touch, as well as recent models of the iPod and iPod Nano, giving you a 4-digit password to set the screen. This is to prevent others from using your iPod, but it is not a safety device impregnable. If you forget the password, you can quickly and easily unlock the iPod by connecting it to the computer you normally use to sync your iPod with iTunes. You can then open the iPod and reset the lock to a more memorable password. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Connect the iPod Touch to your computer via the USB cable. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Wait for iTunes to access and synchronize with your computer. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Take your iPod Touch from your computer, clicking on the "Eject" to the input side of the iPod under "Devices" in iTunes. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Disconnect the iPod Touch from the USB cable. IPod touch will turn on and will be available. <br /> <p><br /> <p>5. Tap the menu "General" on the iPod Touch. Tap "Passcode Lock and tap either" Turn off access "or" Change. "When you click" Change Password ", you can create a new password. <br />

My ipod touch is disabled for 20751236 minutes wat should i do

All you need to do is follow these simple steps:
  1. Plug/connect your device to a computer (PC or Mac)
  2. Turn it OFF
  3. Press and hold the POWER and HOME buttons together for EXACTLY 10seconds
  4. Release the POWER button but keep holding the HOME button until the computer beeps indicating that a USB device is recognized.
  5. Open iTunes and restore your device.

Warning: Restoring will delete all data on your device but this is the only way for you to recover it.

If you don't get it at first, try holding the buttons for lesser time or see the other procedures and some screenshots on my tip (link below):

My suddenly shutdown then i power on machine must be restart and restart tell me wat the solution

Three main things can cause this.

1) Inside of computer is dirty, as well as the inside of the Power Supply.

Dirt, dust, etc, can cause the cooling components capacity to drop tremendously.
If the Processor overheats, it is turned off. (BIOS turns it off)

This is a Fail Safe feature that is built-in, to keep the Processor from burning up. (Literally)

A non- working Processor fan, or one that works intermittently, or doesn't spin as fast as it's supposed to, will also cause the Processor to overheat.

The major cause of computer failure, is that the computer, (And Power Supply) is dirty inside.

Solution is to have the computer unplugged from power, computer case open, use a can of compressed air for computers, and clean the inside of the computer, PLUS the inside of the Power Supply.

(Read about Anti-Static precautions below, BEFORE you do)

2) Power Supply is bad. Weak voltage power rail, brought about by failing components inside the Power Supply.

Test the Power Supply for voltages.
Computer power supply's, supply three main voltages.
A) 3.3 Volts
B) 5 Volts
C) 12 Volts

[Orange insulated wires are 3.3 Volt.
Red wires are 5 Volt.
Yellow wires are 12 Volt.
ANY Black wire is a Ground wire]

This test can be done with an inexpensive multimeter, or a Power Supply Tester.

The Positive (Red) probe lead of the multimeter, is connected to the power wire to be tested.
The Negative (Black) probe lead is touched to any Ground wire.

The 12 Volt power can be 11 to 13 Volts. Below 11 Volts it's time to replace the Power Supply.

This is one example of an inexpensive, easy to use Power Supply Tester,

Or, a compatible, KNOWN to be good power supply, can be substituted, and used for a test unit.

3) Electrolytic Capacitors are failing on the motherboard.
Specifically, the ones used in the motherboard Voltage Regulator Circuit.

One of the jobs the Voltage Regulator Circuit does, is to regulate voltage for the Processor.
A Processor must have a Steady, Clean, supply of voltage, and the voltage MUST be kept within a certain range.

This range, or Tolerance Zone, is VERY small.
Too little voltage the Processor turns off.
(No Processor operating, No computer)

Look for obvious signs of capacitor, (Electrolytic Capacitor) failure.

(Takes a couple of seconds before the page fully loads)

This is what happens when Electrolytic Capacitors are failing, in the motherboard Voltage Regulator Circuit,

(Starts at 0:04)

Solution is to replace failing, or failed Electrolytic Capacitors, or replace the motherboard.

To summarize:

1) Check to see if the computer is dirty. If so, unplug from power, open the computer case, use a can, or two of compressed air for computers.

2) Visually inspect for bad capacitors.
(BEFORE reaching inside a computer, have the computer unplugged from power. Observe Anti-Static precautions.

Your body carries Static electricity.
Static WILL fry out {Short Circuit} the hardware components inside a computer.

Work on a table. Computer Unplugged from power. Computer case open, TOUCH the metal frame to relieve your body of Static.

SHOULD you get up, walk away, then return, TOUCH the metal frame again)

3) Test the voltages of the power supply, or use a KNOWN to be good, compatible power supply for a test.

The Power Supply may light lights, and spin fans. It may even sound as though the Harddrive is running.
However if the Power Supply has a weak voltage power rail, there won't be enough power to turn the Processor on.

A) All the lights use less than 1 Watt of power.
B) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts.

C) A typical Processor can use anywhere from 51 to 125 Watts. Depends on what Processor it is.

No Processor operating, the Harddrive just sits there, and spins the Platters inside.

There is no Processor to find the boot sector located on the Harddrive.
That's why it sounds like the Harddrive is operating, but in reality it isn't.

Read this to know how a Harddrive is made up, and about the Platters I referenced to above,

Computer keeps turning on and off, plus monitor won't display

Sounds like a loose wire inside the system touching something inside and shorting it out. My brother had this same problem. I brought it to my house to work on it and it was fine, no problems. Open the panel and look for any wires that are touching metal or something else and tie it up out of the way. I won't swear that is your issue, but sure sounds like it.

Good luck!

Hi, I have understood this question to mean that you wish to sync it with your computer. If this is correct then please follow the procedure below:
1. Connect iPod to computer and open iTunes 2. It will ask you whether it should sync it with the new computer removing all old data. Click Yes if you want to replace the content on the iPod from your iTunes library otherwise click No and proceed to next step. 3. If you want to keep the data then enable the check box Manually Manage Music and Movies 4. Click Apply
If the device has a passcode lock then you will need to restore ipod to its factory settings. This option too is on the main page of your device settings showing within itunes.

Plug it into the computer you normally sync it with. Then you can either restore the settings to make a new passcode, or automatically get logged in to the ipod but no data will be there.
