Ipod is disabled, how do i restart it ?


The iPod Touch is a type of iPod that features a touch screen and can function as both a portable media player and as a pocket computer.

It is possible to password protect your iPod Touch so that you will have to enter a password every time you want to unlock the iPod Touch screen.

If you repeatedly enter the incorrect passcode, your iPod Touch will become disabled.
To unlock a disabled iPod Touch, you need to sync your iPod Touch device with iTunes on your computer.

Attach the iPod Touch data cable to the bottom of your iPod Touch device and attach the other end of the data cable to an available USB port on your computer.

Open iTunes on your computer and then select your iPod Touch device from the list of available devices on the left side of the iTouch window.

Click the "Restore" button.

If you have previously backed up your iPod Touch, you can choose to restore the device to the last back up or any saved backup.

If you have never backed up your iPod Touch, this process will restore your iPod Touch's factory settings.

Wait while iTunes syncs with your iPod Touch and restores the device.

iTunes will prompt you when this process is complete.

or
A hard reset restores your iPod Touch to its original factory settings.
This is useful when your iPod Touch is disabled and won't turn on or off, but all your data is erased.

Luckily, you can restore your data with iTunes after you've performed the reset.
Once you've performed the reset, your iPod is wiped clean and iTunes prompts you to restore the settings from your last sync.

Plug the iPod into your computer and wait at least 10 minutes.
This allows the battery to recharge in case it has drained.

This could fix your disabled iPod, if the problem was caused by a dead battery.
Click "OK" if your computer opens a "Connect to iTunes" alert box.

Depending on your version of iTunes, the message may indicate the iPod is in "recovery mode" and you need to restore the device.

ITunes opens and resets your iPod for you.
Unplug the iPod from your computer if you don't see the "Connect to iTunes" alert box.

Make sure the iPod is charged before you attempt the hard reset.
Press and hold both the On/Off/Wake button and the Home button on your iPod.

Keep the buttons pressed.
Wait for the Apple logo to appear, it may take 10 seconds or longer.

When you see it, release the On/Off/Wake button but keep the Home button pressed.
Release the Home button when you see a picture of a USB cable with an arrow pointing to the iTunes logo.

Plug your iPod back into the computer.
The iTunes "recovery mode" message will appear.

Click "OK" to complete the reset.

Recovery mode with out using the power button


An iPod Touch's "Recovery Mode" is for alleviating major operating system issues.
Recovery Mode rolls back your iPod's operating system, stripping problematic updates and downloads from the unit.
The goal of this total system recovery is to revert the iPod to a stable, usable version.
Before you use Recovery Mode, exhaust other troubleshooting methods.
In some cases, Recovery Mode is triggered automatically after a failed system update or system restore.
When it goes into Recovery Mode automatically, you cannot use your iPod until you complete the recovery process.
You can get your iPod Touch out of Recovery Mode using Apple's free iTunes software.

Turn on your computer and open iTunes.
If you are prompted to download any new iTunes updates, install the updates before proceeding.
Plug an iPod USB cable into your computer.
Do not plug the other end into your iPod Touch yet.

Turn off your iPod Touch. If the iPod Touch is already shut down, skip this step.
Press and hold the Home button on your iPod Touch, and plug the other end of the USB cable into your iPod Touch.
Release the Home button after you see a white USB icon and the iTunes logo appear on your iPod Touch's screen.
At this time, a pop-up should appear on your computer screen, explaining that the software has detected an iPod in Recovery Mode.
Click "OK."
Click on the iPod Touch from underneath the "Devices" heading on the left-hand side of your screen.
Click on the "Home" tab, and then click "Restore."
Once it's restored, your iPod Touch goes out of Recovery Mode and you can start using it again.
The restoration process takes a few minutes.
Do not disconnect your iPod Touch until a prompt appears, letting you know the system restored successfully.

Will not leave apple logo


Sometimes a iPod malfunction occurs that results in the Apple logo freezing on the screen of the iPod. When this happens, toggling the Hold switch or resetting the iPod typically resolves the problem. If following the manufacturer's instructions on resetting the device fails to get a response from your iPod, however, you must troubleshoot other potential solutions. In addition, taking the time to find the cause of the problem can help you prevent a recurrence of the issue.

Battery Allowing the battery to discharge completely may unlock an iPod stuck on the Apple logo. To drain the battery, leave the iPod with the Apple logo on the screen and place it in a drawer or in another safe place. Do not attempt to use the iPod until the battery drains and the screen goes black. This may take a day or more depending on the current level of battery charge. Once the battery drains, connect the iPod to your computer or to the wall outlet using an AC adapter and charge the battery completely before turning on the device. b> Restore If the iPod remains frozen on the Apple logo after draining and recharging the battery, you may need to restore the device to original factory settings. Unfortunately, this results in the loss of all data and media files stored on the iPod. Restoring the iPod, however, does not delete the files stored in the iTunes library, so you can still get your data back onto the iPod. Follow the specific instructions for your iPod model when restoring the device. Upgrade Software Problems with the version of software installed on your iPod may cause the device to freeze. Upgrading the software may resolve the problem because the updates released by Apple often include both bug fixes and software enhancements. In addition, installing the current release of the iTunes software also may resolve the freezing problem experienced by your iPod. File Corruption Often, a corrupt file can cause your iPod to fail. If you notice that the problem recurs after playing a specific song or video, then delete that file from your iPod. If the problem occurs again after synchronizing with iTunes, delete the file from your iTunes library. Then import the original file into iTunes again or re-download the file. Typically, if a corrupted file is behind the iPod freezing, a reset temporarily restores functionality until the problematic file plays again. b> App Overload Installing apps on your iPod touch can give you more than just fun or informative software. Running too many memory-intensive apps at one time can overwhelm the device and cause your iPod touch to freeze. A single problematic app may have the same effect. Limiting the number of apps running at one time or removing troublesome apps may resolve this problem.

You may have damaged the ipod, you can send in to apple for repair or visit a local Apple store. Or if it has frozen due to an app, then wait for the battery to drain completely or try to shut it off by holding the power button down for longer than 3 seconds.

If this doesn't work, try restoring the iPod from within itunes.

I recently updated the firmware for my ipod touch [2nd gen] and now its stuck on the apple logo and won't do anything else. When i try restarting it, it just goes to the apple logo and then does nothing....


So you've upgraded to the latest 3.1.3 version.
You can still try to put your iPod to DFU mode, that way, iTunes (from your computer) will recognize your device. See link to my instructions below.
But since you have the latest firmware (3.1.3), the only thing you can do, once your device is in DFU mode is to repeat the update. You MUST NOT follow the rest of the rest of the instruction about restoring to 3.1.2, coz that might be fatal. Just REPEAT THE UPDATE. REPEAT THE UPDATE. And wait patiently until your iPod opens normally.
See complete instruction here.

Turning on


If your iPod does not turn on or it appears to be frozen... you may need to reset it...
  • Toggle the 'Hold' switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
  • Press and hold the 'Menu' and 'Center (Select)' buttons for about 6-10 seconds until the Apple logo appears. This step may need to be repeated.
Note: When you reset your iPod all your songs and files are saved. Some of your customized settings may be lost though.
More Tips If Your iPod Does Not Turn On Make sure that your iPod isn't on 'Hold'... Check the 'Hold' switch and make sure that it isn't set to the 'Hold' position... if you see any colour, your 'Hold' switch is engaged.
You might also try toggling the switch to the 'Hold' position, switch it back off, and then try turning it on.
hold-switch.jpg
Make sure that your battery is charged... Your iPod won't turn on if the battery is depleted. Instead, a low battery screen may appear for about 3 seconds when you try to turn it on.
To charge it, connect it to a high-powered USB 2.0 or FireWire port on your computer, or to an Apple iPod Power Adapter that's connected to an electrical outlet, using the cable that came with it.
full-ipod-battery.gif
If your iPod still won't turn on, reset it...Press Menu and Select buttons for six seconds until the Apple logo appears.
When you reset your iPod, all of your songs and files are preserved, however, you may need to reset some customized settings.
Let your iPod battery drain... In rare cases, your iPod might get into a state in which the battery needs to be drained completely before you can reset it.

I have an iphone I downloaded the ants application which seems to have closed the phone down completely I cant get to restore


Products Affected iPhone, iPod touch
Symptoms that may have occurred with an unsuccessful restore may include a frozen screen—either at the Apple logo or some other application—or the device may repeatedly reset.
  1. Verify you have iTunes 7.5 or later. Apple recommends using the latest version of iTunes.
  2. Disconnect the USB cable from the iPhone or iPod touch.
  3. Power off the device (Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button for a few seconds until the red slider appears, then slide the slider. Wait for the the iPhone or iPod touch to turn off.
  4. Press and hold the Home button while reconnecting USB cable. When you reconnect USB, the device should then power on.

    Note: If you see the message "Charging... Please Wait" or you see the screen pictured below, let the device charge for at least 10 minutes to ensure the battery has some charge and then start with step 2 again. ht1808_01.jpg
  5. Continue holding the Home button while iPhone starts up. While starting up, you will see the Apple logo.
  6. When you see "Connect to iTunes" on the screen, you can release the Home button and iTunes will display the recovery mode message: ht1808_02.jpgIf you don't see the "Connect to iTunes" screen, then disconnect the USB cable from iPhone and repeat steps 3-6.
Because you must restore iPhone or iPod touch, iTunes will not recover data from the device, but if it was previously synced on the same computer and the same user account, it should restore a backup (if available). See document 305744, "Updating and Restoring iPhone Software."
If you are still unable to restore the iPhone using this method, check Apple support for further troubleshooting and/or service options.
Note: If you sync both an iPhone and an iPod touch to the same computer, make sure you select the correct backup to restore your settings from (don't select an iPhone backup if you have an iPod touch and don't select an iPod touch backup if you have an iPhone).
