There are a couple of things for you to try. First off just a couple of notes, the "Sleep Button" is the button on top of your iPod and the "Home Button" is the button on the front of your iPod. huntermaggar.jpg So to fix your problem you first need to restore it. But first we need to get iTunes to recognize it.
1.You can try restarting it by holding the sleep button and the home button until the whole iPod reboots. (Usually around 10 seconds)
  • After that try to plug your iPod into your computer again and try to restore it.
2. Try to put your iPod into "DFU" mode.
  • With your iPod powered off and plugged into your computer (plug it in and then power it off)
  • Hold the sleep button for 3 seconds.
  • While continuing to hold the sleep button, hold the home button and sleep button for 10 seconds.
  • Let go of the sleep button, but keep holding the home button for another 30 seconds.
After that your iPod should be in DFU mode which is factory settings and you should be able to use it with iTunes.
And the next time you want to downgrade it you should check out this video. This is what I used to downgrade my iPod touch 2g.

Good luck!

Getting message error -40 cant connect to itunes on my ipod 2g a1288


1. First, Open up iTunes, plug in your iPod Touch/iPhone to the CPU's USB port. Turn on your CPU's speaker and make sure it is loud enough that you can hear it.

2. Hold down the Home button (top left for iPod Touch and top right for the iPhone with the screen facing you) and the Power button (located on the front bottom of your iPod Touch/iPhone) simutaneously, until the screen goes black and the device turns off. (past the red slider/slide to power off screen)

3. Now let go of the Power button, but continue to hold the Home button. Your iPod Touch/iPhone should have turned off and the screen should not be on.

4. After around ~10-20 seconds, you will hear a noise (beep/ding) from your CPU as if it had just recognized a new hardware device, now iTunes should recognize it in DFU mode.

5. After iTunes recognizes the iPod Touch/iPhone, let go of the Home button otherwise it will go into recovery mode and you will have to do the entire DFU process over again.

6. You will know when you have put your iPod Touch/iPhone correctly into DFU mode when the display is blank and that you do not have anything on your device.

7. Restore ipod using itunes

How can i unlock my ipod touch? i forgot my passcode.


The only thing that could make your iPod touch work again is to put it to DFU mode and restore. I have a full instruction about that to guide you step by step, making sure that you're doing the right thing.

However, that process will wipe out all the data from your iPod, you won't even be able to sync or create a back-up because iTunes does not recognize any iPod that is passcode-locked.

That is also why you need to put your iPod to DFU mode first, so that iTunes can recognize it, to by-pass the fact that it is passcode-locked. And, once its in DFU mode, the only thing that you'll be able to do is to restore, nothing else. And you have no other choice.

Does not turn om


it's possible that you have a bad power switch circuit .
have you plugged an a/c charger into the ipod yet?
it should boot with an a/c charger.
also,
plug it into the computer and see if itune recognizes it, if so then your LCD is probably bad and you just don;t know it's on.

and if you have put the ipod into dfu mode it will come up on itunes as being in recovery mode.
go ahead and restore it, if you worried about a jailbreak, dont, you can jail break it easy after it's restored. but i would make sure you have a copy of your current firmware prior so you can restore to the some firmware or something close.
here is a link to a firmware for the 2g: ipod touch firmware

here are the steps to put the ipod in dfu mode:
Normal 0 MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman";} Plug the usb cable into the Ipod and NOT into the computer.
Hold the Home Button down for 5 second (do not release it)
Then Press and hold the Power Button for approx 10 secs (count them out)
Your iPod will reboot.
Release the power button and continue holding the Home button for an additional 27secs.
You may see the screen go blank or not.
Plug the USB end into the computer with itunes open.
Your ipod will mount in recovery mode.
When you go to press restore press the SHIFT key when you hit restore and choose the firmware you have downloaded.
