Re: my ipod wont turn on!

Try restarting your iPod while it's still on the charger. Hold the middle button and the menu button down for about 7 seconds (maybe a little longer). This should fix the problem.

Can I upgrade my iPod to ios6.0 as I keep getting a message saying upgrade to this but don't no how

iOS 6 is possible only on iPod touch 4th generation and newer
- There are two ways to update the iOS version of your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch - via connecting the device to iTunes on a computer
- or directly from within the device, but only since iOS 5, it is possible to update the iOS version without the need to connect the iOS device to a computer (over-the-air update)
just go to: settings - general - software update

White screen! wont go on

Try to reset the iPod by holding down the menu and center button - usually need to put the iPod on a table and use 2 fingers.. Hold for about 5 seconds till the Apple logo appears. Otherwise try a restore in iTunes but that erases everything. JC

Use the Five Rs to restore the iPod. You will lose the data that is currently on it if you restore but you can always re-sync the data to the iPod.

Have you also tried this:
  • Turn on then off the Hold switch
  • with the ipod connected to the pc press and hold the Select AND Menu buttons together till the apple symbol appears.
  • If that doesnt work try holding Select and Play (this loads up disk mode). If that loads it will say something like Disconnect on the ipod screen. Now press Select and menu.
If none of these work then there is something more serious wrong with the device and it needs taking back to the Apple Store. Tip: Book an appointment with a 'Genius' online before you go.

All the best

Do you have an IPod charger that plugs into an elecrical outlet?

See if you can charge the battery that way.

You could try another USB port.

Ipod touch will not charge

it looks like in all of these cases it's either a battery or a motherboard issue, both can be replaced by a tech savy user or friend if you use an iPod touch repair guide, the parts are readily availabe on ebay.
