That's called "recovery mode"
You'll need to connect it to your computer and let iTunes restore your iPod from the last sync point.

Ipod's USB cable points to itunes icon on Ipod's screen and won't turn on. what can i do?


Hi tifftiffpup...
The ipod is requesting that you hook it up to Itunes...maybe for updates.
If nothing happens after you hook the ipod to itunes then you may have to do a restore.
You can restore you ipod but it will wipe all songs,video,messages,pictures,etc completely off the ipod...sometimes you have no choice but to do that and you have to reload everything back on...
Here is how you do a restore incase you do not know:


1...Make sure you have an Internet connection, you may need to download new updated versions of the iTunes or iPod Software.
2...Download and install the latest version of iTunes.
3...Open iTunes.
Connect your iPod to your computer using the USB cable that came with your iPod.
4...After a few moments, your iPod will appear in the Source panel in iTunes.
5...Select your iPod in the Source panel.
You will see some information about your iPod appear in the Summary tab of the main iTunes window.
6...Click Restore.
7...A progress bar will appear on the computer screen, indicating that stage one of the restore process has begun.
When this stage is done, iTunes will show one of two messages with instructions specific to the iPod model you are restoring.
8...Disconnect iPod and connect it to iPod Power Adapter this typically applies to older iPod models.
Leave iPod connected to computer to complete restore this typically applies newer iPod models.
9...During part two of the restoreing process, the iPod will display an Apple logo as well as a progress bar at the bottom of the display.
NOTE: It is very important that the iPod remain connected to the computer or iPod power adapter during this stage of the restore.
10...After the restore process is complete, the iTunes Setup Assistant window will appear.
It will ask you to name your iPod and choose your syncing preferences.
Please take time to rate me.

Help my ipod touch is a 16gb n older version and its gt 5808849 minutes left. what cn i do?


Have iTunes open and your USB cable plugged into the Computer "BUT NOT THE iPOD"!

Turn the iPod off- Press and hold the sleep/wake button at the top left corner for approximately 10 seconds until the screen says slide to power off.


Force into recovery mode Press and hold the home button (in the front on the bottom) for approximately 10 seconds until you get the image of a USB cable pointing towards the iTunes logo on the screen. If you do not get this, try holding the home button down and at the same time plugging the other half of the USB cable into the ipod waiting for a message in iTunes

Follow instructions in iTunes Once you plug the iPod into the computer, you should get a message saying "iTunes has detected an iPod in recovery mode, it must be restored to be used." At this point you hit the restore button in iTunes and wait for the iPod to be restored

Hi basically my problem is my ipod wont do anything but show me an image of a usb wire with an arrow pointing to itunes logo (connect to itunes) when i do that itunes tells me to unlock the screen using...


I can help.
So with the device plugged into your PC, iTunes open, if it shows up in iTunes eject it, or cancel the prompt to unlock the screen.

Hold down the Power button for 3 seconds

Without releasing the power button, also hold the Home button for 10 seconds

Without releasing the home button, release the power button and keep holding the Home button for 20 seconds.

iTunes will detect an iPod in recovery mode, let off button and set down device and hit RESTORE in iTunes.

Hope it works!

The usb cord n screen is pointing to itunes and the screen wont turn to anything else b power off


You probably got yourself a new iPod!
What the screen is trying to tell you is that you should sync your iPod to iTunes. To do that:
Step 1: Go to http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/ and click download to download iTunes.
Step 2: Once it is downloaded, find where you have saved the file, and double-click it.
Step 3: Continue by pressing next through each screen until you reach the end screen (the one where there is a finish button).
Step 4: Connect your iPod to the computer with the USB cable that came with your iPod.Follow the on screen instructions. You should now be able to use your iPod!

On the ipod touch the itunes icon comes out and is a usb cable with an arow pointing to the itunes icon


make sure you're USB is unplugged. when you're at the screen with the itunes symbol and the usb arrow, hold down the home and sleep button until the screen goes black, at this point, keep holding for another 10 seconds. at this point your screen should look black as if the ipod is off. connect to the computer and itunes shoulds show a message like "itunes has just discovered an ipod in recovery mode" you'll be able to do a restore and regain use of your touch.
if this does not work, message me back.
