You can unlock iPod in one of two ways: • Enter the combination code of 4 digit to unlock the iPod. If you enter wrong code combination, the digits onscreen flash red. • Or Connect iPod to the main computer you use (computer with which iPod synced with), and open iTunes. Now disconnect the iPod from the computer, it will be unlocked.
<p>Apple included an option to restrict access to your iPod
through the creation of a PIN code to lock the screen and to keep unwanted
users. Unfortunately forgot your password, not being able to access your music
when you're on. If you draw a blank password, you can reset it, but not before
you get home to your computer. Use your iPod to your iTunes software to reset
the security code. <br />
<p>1. Connect your iPod. Enter the password appears. <br />
<p>2. Connect the iPod to the computer you normally sync. <br />
<p>3. Run iTunes and wait for the iPod name appears in the left
pane of the iTunes window. <br />
<p>4. Click the "Eject" icon next to the iPod name in
the left pane. The device is unlocked. <br />
<p>5. Select "Extras" iPod. <br />
<p>6. Open the "Lock Screen" option. <br />
<p>7. Select "Turn off Screen Lock" Lock Screen menu.
I had the same problem. And I coudn't remember my SCREEN LOCK Password as your son. So what I did was I just disconnecteed my IPOD while it was connected to itunes without properly ejecting. This method doesn't retrieve or resets the password, it justs opens your ipod out of the screen lock. so your son can hear his music as usual until he can get a password retreive helper.
I assume the unlocking your ipod is the combination that locks the screen and not the little white tab on the top of the iPod. By plugging the iPod into itunes it should unlock it. By restoring your iPod you erase the lock but also your music. If may stay unlocked when you remove it from the computer. Good luck.
First make sure your hold switch isn't on. It's on the top or bottom and slides
back and forth. It needs to be switched to the left. Once it is to the
left, here's how you reset:
You can reset your ipod by holding down the menu and select (round
button in the center) buttons down for at least 10 seconds. You'll see
an apple logo flash, that's when you stop pressing the buttons. It will
shut off, then back on.
Wow sorry to hear about that ::
Here is the info you need ::
According to Apple, if you have forgotten the code, you can unlock the iPod nano or iPod by doing the following:
Connect your iPod to the primary computer you use it with (the first one iPod synced with), and open iTunes. When you disconnect iPod from the computer, it will no longer be locked.
If you can't unlock iPod using either [the code or connecting it to the computer you use to manage its songs]. . . you can restore your iPod to factory settings using iPod Updater. Please note that this will erase all data on your iPod. Afterwards, you can add your music and data back to your iPod.
Apple also notes that company "representatives cannot unlock an iPod if you forget your combination. If you can't unlock your iPod and you don't have access to the primary computer, your only option is to restore the iPod, which will erase all music and data."
I hope this helps
