Hold the sleep button (top) and the home button (bottom) until the apple logo appears then let go and let it reboot.

If that doesn't fix your problem you may need to restore. To restore, hold down the sleep button (top) and the home button until the apple logo appears. As soon as it appears let go of the sleep button but keep the home button held.

After a few seconds a (plug into iTunes) message should appear. Do this now. iTunes will say your iPod needs to be restored, click the restore button now.

iTunes will then download the newest firmware for your iPod and perform a system recovery. This will wipe out everything on your iPod but don't worry, to re obtain everything just sync it with iTunes when the restore is done.

That should fix your problem, however. If it doesn't I am afraid to say that you will have to have it repaired by apple.

NOTE: If your iPod is jailbroken this will un-jailbreak it. You will have to reinstall everything after re-jailbreaking. I'm sorry for the incovenience.

I don't have itunes and my ipod says ipod is disabled for 22 million minutes, what should i do?

Have you tried shutting it down? I don't mean the standby mode that it usually goes into i mean shut it right down.
Hold the power button until you see a different screen that says power off (Think it's written in red). Once you have this screen swipe the power off and then go have Coffee for about ten minutes at least. When you comne back hold the power button until the ipod shows the apple logo then let ir finish it's startup. Hopefully this will reset the system for you and allow it to function normally, however if this doesn't work you will have to find a friend with itunes and let itunes fix the uniot.

My ipod touch says its disabled. my old computer crashed. and when i plug it into itunes it says i need to enter my passcode from the ipod touch but i cant do that wat am i supposed to do at this point

The only thing at this point you can do is bring it into an apple store. If there are none nearby you would have to erase everything off of your iPod touch by putting it into recovery mode. This can be done by having your iPod plugged into any computer with itunes and holding the top and home button until screen goes black. Then after 5 seconds release the top button but continue to hold the home button until itunes says it found an ipod in recovery mode. This WILL erase everything off your ipod

My Ipod touch screen suddenly began to display everything huge. What happened?

Hi mariaelenaga,

To set a minimum font size for messages:

Choose "Mail, Contacts, Calendars" > Minimum Font Size, then choose Small, Medium, Large, Extra Large, or Giant.

Also, you may need to try the following:

Restarting and Resetting iPod touch

If something isn't working right, restarting, force quitting an application, or resetting iPod touch will likely solve the problem.

Restart iPod touch: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the red slider appears.

Slide your finger across the slider to turn off iPod touch. To turn iPod touch back on, press and hold the Sleep/Wake until the Apple logo appears.

If you can't turn off iPod touch or if the problem continues, you may need to reset. A

reset should be done only if turning iPod touch off and on doesn't resolve the problem.

Force quit an application: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button on top of iPod touch

for a few seconds until a red slider appears, and then press and hold the Home button

until the application quits.

Reset iPod touch: Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the
same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.

This information was sourced from the iPod Touch official user guide at:

Hope this helps.

Best regards,

You need to do a 'Hard reset' !
This is the procedure 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

Shows to connect to itunes on the screen

The ipod should let you do a restore in itunes with the computer that last synced the ipod. This is the only way to remove the passcode.

If it wont simply show up on the computer, plug the ipod in, hold the power button and then slide to power off. Press the power button, as soon as the apple logo appears press and hold both the top power button and the home button together until the orange triangle appears. This should put the iPhone into restore mode, open itunes and restore.

I have plugged in my new ipod touch, but in itunes it is not recognizing my ipod as a new device so i cant start it up?

Ok, do you wanna pay?
Don't think so...
Well, go on Youtube, find some music videos, and go to:
this site links you to a youtube converter website.
put the URL of the music video from youtube in the box and in the selection box click MP4 iPod or something. Click continue or something. Wait until it is done downloading, open it with iTunes and right click it and click on Get Info (Mac users use Command + Mouse Click and click get info) Go on one of the tabs and find a selection box that allows you to check mark that it is a music video, tv shows or something.

Hope this Helped!
