I am assuming you are referring to an iPod Touch? Try plugging it in to your computer via USB. It should at least give you the charging icon but should also start a sync with iTunes if it's installed. There may be a problem with the battery where it's not holding enough of a charge to function without being plugged in.

You might also try holding down the power AND home buttons for 10-15 seconds to see if it will reset.

SOURCE: my home button wont work

hi guys dont worry about it. its not really a major problem because sometimes the ipod has really really tiny malfunctions like this and no, im not from the apple store so dont ask anyway all you have to is this: plug in your ipod to the computer using the usb cable. now it should say that it is syncing if not, sync your ipod. while it is syncing, press cancel sync on your ipod touch and it should cancel and take you back to the home screen. This shouldnt happen again but if it does, at least you have a way to return to your home menu cya :)

You must enter the Recovery mode to wipe the passcode of your iPod Touch. To do this Power on your device, hold down the Power button + Home button at the same time until the screen turn off then release the power button while still pressing down the home button for 10 secs, until you see an iTunes icon on your iPod, then connect it to iTunes and start resetting your iPod Touch.

sorry, that is the incorrect way to enter dfu mode. here is the correct way.
Step 1. Plug your ipod into your computer.
Step 2. Power off your ipod.
Step 3. hold the power button down for 3 seconds.
Step 4. while holding the power button, press and hold the home button for 10 seconds.
Step 5. While still holding the home button, release the power button AND CONTINUE HOLDING THE HOME BUTTON for 15 seconds.

your computer should recognize the device as in dfu mode, install the driver needed, and from then on, you should be able to restore.

Sources- i have had an ipod since the very first one, and i have extensive knowledge of jailbreaking and restoring troubles.

My ipod touch 4th generations says ipod disabled connect to itunes, but screen is locked


Like all electronic devices, iPods sometimes freeze and become unresponsive. Sometimes iPods lock up when they're dropped on the ground or come in contact with water, but less destructive accidents may also cause them to stop working. All versions of the iPod have a way to reset their hardware should they stop playing music or refuse to turn off.

Check the "Hold" switch on the top case of your iPod to be sure it isn't activated. An iPod will appear frozen and unresponsive if this feature is activated. A lock symbol will appear on your iPod's screen if it is in Hold mode. Switch the "Hold" button on and off once. Place one finger on the "Menu" button and another on the center button. Press both buttons at the same time and hold them for up to 8 seconds. Release the "Menu" and center buttons once the Apple logo appears on your iPod's screen. Try releasing the buttons and pressing and holding them a second time if the logo does not appear, as it can sometimes take several tries to reset a severely frozen iPod. Press and hold the top button and the center "Home" button on a frozen and unresponsive iPod touch to reset it. Hold the buttons for at least 10 seconds and wait for the Apple logo to appear on the screen, then release the buttons. Connect your iPod to its powerblock or a computer if it is still frozen. Wait 5 minutes and then try to reset it. Sometimes an iPod can appear frozen when its battery runs out and just needs a few minutes of power to start working again. Hope this helps.

"frozen/ hung" how can i reboot my ipod or


Try this method:
- Press and hold the Home button and the Power button together for about 10 -15 seconds. This should shut down your ipod. If you pressed it too long or pressed home too long, it will go into recovery mode. In which case, you ned to press the home and power button together again.

If your ipod is sync with your pc/mac, you can try plugging it in and your pc/mac should detect it and show you options like restore or something.

hope this helps.

MY IPOD TOUCH IS DISABLE I DONT KNOW HOW TO ENABLE


here's how to enable it.

1. Turn on your iPod (in my case it would only get as far as displaying the Apple logo
2. Hold the power and home buttons down (the iPod will power off after 10 seconds, but keep holding those buttons down)
3. After the iPod powers off, release the power button (but keep holding the home button down)
4. After a couple more seconds, you should hear that magical “ding dong” that means the iPod is coming back alive, and that Windows has detected it. You may even see a little “New hardware” popup in Windows. It is now safe to release the home button, and your iPod is in DFU mode.
5. Now iTunes will see it as a DFU’ed iPod and should ask you to automatically restore its firmware.
6. iTunes has to download the new firmware, and it takes a while, so go make a sandwich.
