Unlock disabled ipod touch

The only way to unlock the iPod touch is to do a full wipe/recovery in iTunes. Reboot the iPod into recovery recovery mode by plugging it into the computer, hold both power and home buttons until the iPod turns off, then keep holding the home button but let go of power until iTunes says it detected an iPod in recovery mode. Use iTunes to restore the iPod and set it up.

You will need to do a 'Hard reset' !
This is how the the procedure goes for the ipod touch:
- While plugged into ITunes, Hold down the power and home keys down for 10+ seconds. - - Screen will go black
- Release the power button but keep holding the home key until itunes says 'We have detected an itouch in recovery mode'
- Restore as normal via iTunes

Hope it helps!

How do you restart an Ipod?? I was trying to

  1. Hold the Power button until you see the "Slide To Power Off" slider.
  2. Let go of the Power button, and slide the slider.
  3. Wait until it turns off completely, press the Power button again to turn it back on.
  1. Press and hold the power button and the square home button at the same time.
  2. Wait some time it will reset eventually.
  3. Be patient.
Hope this helps - good luck!

Ipod not recognized as a drive.i need help. it is an ipod touch 8 g 2nd gen

Plug your ipod into a USB 2.0 port and see if that helps.
or try a different port on your computer. make sure your not connecting the ipod
through a hub. Sometimes the hubs don't carry enough power to drive the ipod.
if this doesn;t help get back to me and I will help further.

Screen gone dark

It is natural to ipod the screen will be dark if has no power unless the LCD of your iPod is defected even it has a power its remain dark that’s the symptom of defected LCD screen. I hope your problem is a power failure only. Make sue your iPod is fully charged and then toggle the hold switch on and off. Then reset your iPod nano; Toggle the Hold switch on and off,(Slide it to Hold then it off again). Then press and Hold the Menu and Center (select0 buttons simultaneously until the apple logo appears ,about 6 to 10 seconds .You may need to repeat this step . If you having difficulty resetting your iPod set it on a flat surface .Make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel,and not near the center. Then If the above steps did not work, try connecting iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep. Try your iPod nano with a different USB port on your computer, not a USB port on your keyboard or hub. iPod will stop charging if the computer, or portable computer, it's connected to enters standby, hibernation, or sleep mode. To charge your iPod, connect it directly to a computer's USB port and make sure standby, hibernation, or sleep mode is turned off. If using a portable computer, make sure it is plugged in to a power source and that the lid or display is open. If the lid is closed the computer may go into either standby, sleep, or hibernation mode and iPod will not charge properly. If you have an Apple iPod USB power adapter you'll be able to charge your iPod without leaving your computer powered on. If all procedure above for power to on is not working then its better to replaced the battery with anew one so its works normal again.

Hope it may help you;

Problem with IPod Nano Model A1137

Try holding the menu button and center button at the same time. this should reset the ipod completely. Its a force power up and power down similar to Zapping your PRAM on a computer. this should reset the configurations
Hopefully that helps

Computer won't read my ipod.

It might be that your USB port is not giving the iPod enough power to connect and charge etc. but you can go into device manager and change how much power is fed into it.
