Question about Apple iPod touch

Ipod touch won't turn off & home key doesn't work

My iPod touch won't turn off. I press and hold the on/off switch but it doesn't turn off, it just goes to "sleep" mode. Also the "home" key doesn't work. I’m stuck in my music playlist. I hit the home key and a little screen pops up and asks if I want close or music. I click close but it doesn't go anywhere. Both of these problems have never happened to me before.

Ipod Touch wont turn on


Your iPod has been working fine and all of a sudden it won't turn on. Not sure why? Before you rush to your nearest Apple store, try these easy-to-use, at-home solutions for fixing your iPod.

Check the Hold switch to see if it is off. Located on the top or the bottom of the iPod, when it is in the "on" position you will see an orange patch of color. Slide the switch until the orange coloring disappears. Try to turn on the iPod. Make sure the battery is fully charged by connecting your iPod to your computer's built-in FireWire or USB port or into an electrical outlet using your Apple iPod power adapter. Note: iPods without a click wheel cannot be charged using a USB port. After your battery is fully charged, try to turn on the iPod. Reset your iPod. iPod Shuffle: Disconnect iPod Shuffle from the computer if connected. Move the power switch to the off position. Wait five seconds. Move the switch to the play in order or the shuffle position. iPod Touch: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons together for at least 10 seconds until the Apple logo appears. iPod Nano (all generations), iPod Classic, iPod Mini: Turn the Hold switch on and off. Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons at the same time until the Apple logo appears, making sure to not touch any part of the click wheel. This should take about six to eight seconds and may need to be repeated. If your iPod still won't turn on, check the following: Make sure the iPod is the only device in your FireWire or USB chain. Disconnect everything but the mouse, keyboard and iPod, and try again. Double check that you are using the FireWire or USB cable that came with your iPod, and that it is in good condition. Try the built-in port of a different computer.

My son updated my 2g ipod touch on his (older?) computer. It is frozen now & won't go past a screen w/the itunes symbol & the usb plug. It will not restore. I have uninstalled & reinstalled...


  • This isn't an iTunes problem. While the iPod is displaying this logo, you need to plug it in to a computer that has iTunes open beforehand.
  • Try using another computer with iTunes installed, or another USB cable for the iPod. Try to restart by holding the sleep and home buttons for about 10 seconds.
  • If this still doesn't work, take the iPod to your local Apple store, where they can check for any hardware problems that may have occurred.

Screen shows usb and Itunes but computer doesnt recognize ipod.


1. Verify if your pc passes the system requirements.
(a) usb 2.0 port
(b) You are running the latest version of itunes

2. Recharge your iPod Touch

3. Check USB connections. Use a USB port that is built into the computer instead of using an external usb hub.

4. Restart iPod Touch. Do the following steps: To restart iPod touch, first turn iPod touch off by pressing and holding the Sleep/Wake button until a red slider appears. Slide your finger across the slider and iPod touch will turn off after a few moments.
Next, turn iPod touch on by pressing and holding the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.
Is iPod touch not responding? To reset iPod touch, press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least 10 seconds, until the Apple logo appears.

5. Restart your computer then reconnect your iPod Touch

6. Try reinstalling iTunes. And if this doesn't resolve the issue, you can also try uninstalling iTunes then reinstalling the latest version.

7. Check if there are third-party software that might prevent iTunes from recognizing your iPod touch. Such software may be security software, anti-virus software and webcam drivers. What you can do is adjust the software settings or you may also temporarily disable the software.

My ipod touch wont work


If iPod touch won't turn on, or if the display freezes or doesn't respond
  • iPod touch may need charging. See "Charging the Battery" in the iPod touch Features Guide.
  • Press and hold the Home button for at least six seconds, until the application you were using quits.
  • If that doesn't work, turn off iPod touch and turn it on again. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button on top of iPod touch for a few seconds until a red slider appears, and then drag the slider. Then press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.
  • If that doesn't work, reset iPod touch. Press and hold both the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
If iPod touch continues to freeze or not respond after you reset it
  • Reset iPod touch settings. From the Home screen choose Settings > General > Reset > Reset All Settings. All your preferences are reset, but your data and media are left untouched.
  • If that doesn't work, erase all content on iPod touch. From the Home screen choose Settings > General > Reset > "Erase All Content and Settings." All your preferences are reset, and all your data and media are removed from iPod touch.

To reset the iPhone or iPod Touch, press and hold down the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button simultaneously at the same time for at least ten seconds, then the LCD display will clear and the Apple logo appears on the black background. When Apple logo appears, reset is done.
