Here's how to work it again. 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.

I cant get back to my apps on my itouch. I'm stuck in the music and cant get away from it? How do I go back to the icons?


You are trying to get back to the home screen? if so, then hold the power button down until the slide to power down comes up and then power down. Once it turns off all the way then turn the itouch back on by holding the power button on for a couple of seconds.

My ipod is disabled


While your itouch is connected to your computer, and itunes is open, press and hold the sleep/off button (the one on the top of the itouch) until the slider comes up on the screen. Slide the slider to turn off the itouch. Now, press and hold the home button (the one right below the screen) and at the same time, press the off/sleep button again. Hold both until you see your itunes page bring up a "restore" feature. Unfortunately, when restoring, you will lose all data (songs, etc..) Hopefully, you have this data in itunes and can easily download it back onto your itouch. This is the only thing that works. Sucks that you lose everything, but at least your itouch will once again work....

When i unlock my itouch the screen works fine then when i try to click something on the itouch it dousnt work what should i do>?


Have you tried rebooting it? By holding the sleep/wake button and sliding the turn off slider. If that doesn't work, hold sleep/wake and the home button at the same time. Or you could try a restore.

Hope that helps!

Cannot connect to internet with itouch


Go into Preferances, go to Wi-Fi, touch the blue cycle next to the Wi-Fi router you're conected to. Scroll to the bottom of the page and touch "Renew Lease", touch "Renew Lease" in the pop up. This may or may not work the first time. Either way, power off your iTouch by holding the "Power button" then sliding the slider. Turn it back on, go back to Preferences/Wi-Fi... Renew Lease... Try to open Safari. If it doesn't work the first time, no worries, try it all again. This is the solution, but if your iTouch gets glitchy, it can take a few tries. The most I've ever seen was 3 complete tries... "Renew Lease, Full Restart (slide to power off), Renew Lease"... one. Repeat!

Connections problems


I had that problem in the beginning with my iTouch.
Have you checked your IP address?
Try opening settings, then open Wi-Fi, then touch the blue circle with the arrow in it that's next to your Wi-Fi router's name.
Once you're looking at a screen with your network's name at the top and your iTouch's IP address in the middle, scroll to the bottom of the page and touch "Renew Lease", then confirm by doing it again on the popup.
Now, scroll back to the top of the page and wait a moment. You should see the IP address go blank and then a new number should appear.
Hopefully you're online, check by opening App Store or Safari.
If not...
Turn off your iTouch competely (hold the lock/power button until the "slide to power off" slider pops up, then slide it).
Next, turn off your Wi-Fi router and modem.
Wait 5 full minutes.
Turn on your modem, wait 2 full minutes.
Turn on your Wi-Fi router, wait 2 full minutes.
Turn on your iTouch.
If all that doesn't work, call Apple Care... 1.800.692.7753
If you have any questions, please feel free to call me.
