I need help getting a code for my apple ipod a1236. my ipod is locked and I don't know my code. can u help please?


Hi rooney822
If you have forgotten the code or put the wrong code in your ipod, you can unlock the Ipod by doing the following:
Connect your IPod to the primary computer you use it with (the first one Ipod synced with), and open iTunes.
When you disconnect iPod from the computer, it will no longer be locked.
If you can't unlock Ipod using either (the code or connecting it to the computer you use to manage its songs). . . you can restore your ipod to factory settings using ipod Updater.
Please note that this will erase all data on your ipod.
Afterwards, you can add your music and data back to your ipod.
If you want to change the primary computer that your Ipod is associated with, do this:
1. Restore your iPod. WARNING: The restore process cannot be undone.
All of your songs and files will be deleted.
Always make a backup of your important data.
2. Connect your ipod to the computer that you want to be the primary computer.
3. Open iTunes and synchronize.
If you can't unlock your ipod and you don't have access to the primary computer, your only option is to restore the Ipod, which will erase all music and data.

I have a problem,I bought a apple i pod mp 3 player a few weeks ago at a flee market,worked fine up until last night I accidently went into lock screen and it went off and now I don't have a clue to...


There are 2 ways to try and unlock it if you don't know the passcode.

1) Connect your iPod to the computer set as the primary one in iTunes. Open the iTunes application, then disconnect your iPod from the computer, and it should no longer be locked.

Only use this next option as a last resort because it is a destructive process.

Everything on your iPod will be erased.

Reset lock code


Sadly, when you get locked out of your ipod and do not have the password; the ONLY way to unlock the ipod and resolve your issue is to restore it using itunes. You probably already know but when your ipod is first recognized by itunes it loads to the summary page of your ipod. On this page is where the restore option will be found. Simply click on that and follow the on screen instructions. Hope you don't have to loose any music over this.
