My Itouch will not do anything, is it broken?

My Itouch will not do anything, But when I put the USB cord in to charge it, it makes the same noise it should. But the screen stays blank and even when I hold the power button and or the circle button. Is it totally broken?

Start by syncing your iPod with your computer. When you do this, the iPod management screen will appear. Midway down that screen there's a button that reads "Restore." Click the restore button. This begins the process of restoring the iPod to its factory settings. After you click the restore button, iTunes will ask you to confirm that you really want to do this. If your iPod content is backed up, go ahead. The iPod restore process includes iTunes downloading and installing iPod software and bug fixes. You will see a window that looks like this. Follow the onscreen instructions. On a Mac, you will be asked to enter your computer?s password. On Windows, the installation will just proceed. As iTunes restores the iPod, you will see a progress bar. After the restoration process has completed, iTunes will pop up a window letting you know that it?s done. Now you?ve got an empty, freshly formatted iPod. Now you can sync the iPod with your computer and download your iTunes library again.

Put your ipod in DFU mode and plug it into your computer, you should be able to figure its in dfu when your computer says new hardware found, Apple DFU Repair or something like that... The Ipod then is practically running a secondary operating system to allow access to repair it, some hackers take control of this and modify the operating system on the ipod, they call it jailbreaking... Look on youtube if you need to know how to put it into DFU mode.

Fix Disabled ITouch that ITunes will not recognize


If your itouch reads "disabled connect to itunes" and shows the "locked" icon and your itunes will not even recognize the device and itunes says your itouch is locked and enter password, Here is what you do to restore your itouch: (you will lose all itouch contents but it is worth it as almost all say it is broken and worthless)
1. Turn off your itouch or ipod. Do not have charger / usb connected to ipod or itouch.
2. With device off, connect the charger end of the cable to the itouch / ipod but do not plug the usb into the computer.
3. Open Itunes
3. While holding down the menu button (and I mean keep holding it down), plug the usb into the computer.
4. Wait to see the new wonderful graphic on your device and computer screen that shows that your ipod / itouch is recognized.
Your itouch will start immediately restoring itself and you are ready to fill it up with wonderful images, photos and videos again!
So happy to share this tip. It saved me money and time.

My Itouch (1st Gen) has recently stopped working on all USB cables, so now the only way i could charge it was an Ihome rip off. But now, my itouch is disabed and to try again in 5000000 minutes.


ok so u have to do a FULL MASTER RESET. Turn off the ipod and then once its off hold down the Home button (circle button at bottom) This will put the apple icon on the screen. Once that appears immediately plug in a USB cord. This should bypass the disable and passwords and then send you straight to resetting the ipod. Hope this helps. GOOD LUCK

New iTouch doesn't work in DEH-P4800MP


The newest versions of the Iphone uses USB charging only, while older generations of (any) Ipods used firewire for charging. First generation Iphone and Ipod Touch could be charged with either method. Most docks historically used the firewire charging method, making them incompatible with all but 1st generation Iphones. You need a new cable/charger that charges with the USB method.
