Yikes that happened to me twice! You should call the apple store or where ever you bought it and get a refund or at least make them repair it. Well......they might do it without pressure. So don't worry you'll have it ready in no time.

Ipad forgotten password


From the apple support site:

iOS: Forgotten passcode or device disabled after entering wrong passcode When you set up a passcode to secure the use of your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch and then enter the wrong passcode, you may see a a message saying your device is "disabled". Learn what to do if you have forgotten or can't remember your passcode, or if your device displays a message saying it is disabled.If you enter the wrong passcode six or more times, you'll see a message that says one of the following:
  • iPhone is disabled
  • iPad is disabled
  • iPod touch is disabled

  1. Connect the device to the computer with which you normally sync and open iTunes.
    Note: If iTunes asks you to enter the passcode, try another computer that you have synced with. Otherwise, go to "If you have never synced your device with iTunes, or you do not have access to a computer" section below.
  2. If the device is still disabled, or if iTunes does not automatically sync your device, sync the device with iTunes.
  3. When the backup and sync is complete, restore your device.
  4. When iOS Setup Assistant asks to set up your device, choose "Restore from iTunes backup".
  5. Select your device in iTunes and choose the most recent backup of your device.
Hope this helps!

Ipod touch model a1288 is disable forgot passcode and wont let me connect to itunes messages says enter passcode to connect


The most logical option would be...
- Connect your device to iTunes (The same computer it is set to sync with)
- Hold the power and home buttons
- After the device shuts down, release the power button
- Your device should then be in recovery mode, at which point you may release the home button upon seeing a message on iTunes that basically says it has detected an iPod in recovery mode.

My ipod is disabled and i need a simple way to fix it!! It says that connect to itunes


iPod Is Disabled After a series of more failed attempts, your iPod displays the same "iPod is Disabled" message, but with an added "Connect to iTunes" message. At this point, your iPod shuts down completely and you cannot make any more attempts to enter the passcode. In order to restore the device at this stage, you need to connect it to a computer with iTunes installed. Ideally, connect it to a computer that you've used before for syncing your iPod.

the only thing I could think of is put the ipod in DFU mode,Turn off the ipod and plug it into the computer and open itunes. hold the sleep/wake button (top button) and the home button(bottom button) for 10 seconds. When you count to 10 release the top sleep/wake button and continue holding the home button for 10 seconds. after about 6-10 seconds an itunes error message should pop up saying there is an ipod in DFU mode would you like to restore it. Thats the only way i could think about it.

My ipod touch 4th generation says -ipod is disabled connect to itunes- tried that and itunes wouldnt open unless unlocked my ipod and i cant. I tried restoring it and itunes said ipod can not be restored...


"iPod is disabled - Connect to iTunes" . This is because someone(or something?) has tried to crack your password too many times, which causes Iphone/Ipod to automatically disable itself to protect your data.

To restore your iPod, you must connect your iPod to iTunes with your iPod connector table. Make sure it is on and has this message when you connect it to your computer. Once connected, iTunes should detect it as usual.

Once connected, make sure you have all the proper sync settings enabled - for example, applications, music, photos, etc. Change something so that the Sync button in the bottom right appears in the iTunes window. Then sync the data.

When syncing is finished, turn on your iPod / iPhone and you should notice that the message is gone. Type in your password and the disabled message should be gone.

If the message is still there, try holding the sleep and home button at the same time until the iPod turns off, then continue holding the sleep and home button until a screen with the iTunes logo and a picture of the connector cable appears. This will put your iPod in Restore mode. With this option, you must click the Restore button in iTunes, which will delete all your data on the iPod.

I have an 8 GB iPod touch that is now disabled because I can't remember the 4 digit code. The message on the iPod's screen says, 'iPod is disabled. Connect to iTunes.' The computer that I originally used...


You can bypass that passcode lock by doing the following 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 on my tip (link below):
