Dear sir, I have locked my ipod Model A1136 and i dont know the password. I have never change it. Does it got a specific code for a new product like Nokia phone 12345 for the first access. And if not what...


if your ipod docks onto itunes but is still locked when you disconnect it, you do NOT have to reset it! all you have to do is follow these next few steps.(this is done on a windows xp system)

Go to my computer>devices with removable storage>ipod(-random letter goes here-:) go to the top.

click the button that says Tools and go down to Folder Options and click it.

a new window will apear that has three tabs. the middle one says Veiw. click that.

in the veiw tab there will be a Advanced Settings box. under Hidden Files and Folders, click the dot that says "show hidden files and folders" next to it.

close the small window and click a shadey file called ipod controll. if you dont see this reset the page by clicking th backward and then forward button up in the top left hand side.

then click a folder that says device. in that folder you will see a file that says "_locked" and it should have a small size (i.e. 1-7kb).

delete this file and undock your ipod from the computer through itunes.

when it restarts it will most likely be unlocked. if not, proceed with the other way to unlock your ipod above.


best of luck. i repair the worst of ipod senarios, and i know how frustrating they can be.

MY IPOD IS SAYING GO TO WWW.APPLE.COM/SUPPORT/IPOD


If the iPod is showing the "Sad iPod face" icon, this means that the hard drive inside the iPod is dead and needs to be replaced.

If the iPod is showing the "Folder/Exclamation Point" icon, this means that the logic board (the circuit board) inside the iPod is no longer working properly and needs to be replaced in order for the iPod to work.

Ipod 3rd Generation


Test the hard drive by holding menu+centre to reset and immediatly holding left+centre when it reboots to enter the ipod diagnostic menu. Use the right arrow to highlight the Memory or HDD menu. Select it and you should be able to find out if the drive is dead.

If the drive is ok, try restoring the ipod through itunes.


Post back here if the drive is wrecked.
