How do i turn it off?

Hold down the button on the top (sleep button) of your iPod touch and it should come up with 'Slide to power off' on the screen. If you need to do a hard reboot, hold down the sleep button and the home button on the front until it shuts down completely and then you see the Apple logo. Then let go of the buttons.

Restore software for ipod 16GB touch

i would be checking the usb lead before doing anything or even replacing it with a new one make sure iis securely connected
the cable near the iTunes symbol represents a problem with the cable
and the cd will not not be able to activate without a connection

Connect one end of the USB sync cable to one of your computer's unused USB ports, and connect the other end to the bottom of the iPhone or iPod Touch.

If iTunes does not start on its own, run it using the desktop or Start menu shortcut.

When iTunes starts, you should see an icon for the iPhone or iPod Touch on the left side of the window.

Click "Summary" in the right pane of the window if it is not already active.

Click the "Restore" button to begin the device restoration process.

ITunes displays a message asking if you want to save the contents of the device to your computer before restoring it.

If you have not backed up the device already, click the "Back Up" button.

If you have already done this, click "Don't Back Up."

Click "Restore." ITunes clears the data from your iPhone or iPod Touch and reinstalls the device's original firmware.

The screen of your iPhone or iPod Touch may shut off while iTunes works.

Do not remove the USB sync cable.

When iTunes is done restoring the device, it displays a message letting you know that the device is about to restart.

Click "OK" to restart the device. If you are restoring an iPhone or iPod touch, wait for the "iPhone / iPod touch is activated" message to appear on the screen of the device before you disconnect it from the computer.

You may now restore your backup of the device or remove it from the computer.

hope this helps

Ipod touch turns on but it doesnt give me option to type in code

Hi there,

I would recommend checking for updates for the software on your Ipod touch as if the software on the Ipod is out of date, features may begin to stop working.

To complete this you can connect your Ipod to your Mac or PC and follow the onscreen instructions in iTunes. It will automatically offer you to install new updates to software.

Hi how can i fix my ipod and it says ipod disabled and connect to itunes and when i connect it to my computer it says i cant restore it

Have you tried a hard-reset of the iPod Touch by pressing and holding both the top and home buttons down until the unit shuts-off?

While holding the buttons down, ignore the prompt to slide to turn-off -- just keep holding both buttons until the unit goes black. After that, release the buttons and press them both briefly again to start up.

Hopefully this will allow the iPod Touch to be restored.

Doesn't turn on and won't charge

Aug 07, 2009 - OK, I found the answer...there was a problem with the updated Windows service pack. I had to uninstall all applications(even in recycle bin) of all previous service packs including the new service pack 3. Then, went to Windows update and reinstalled the service pack 3 only and after installation, my ipod came to life! It was beautiful....Must be a compliant problem with the packs...I don't know!

Ipod touch randomly shuts down

Hello. This is actually a very common problem with the 1st Generation 16GB Touch. It is recommended you do a system restore before these steps, but not necessary.

Step 1.
Go into Settings, and click on the General Tab
Step 2.
Set Auto-Lock to Never

This should keep it from shutting down randomly. If this does not help the problem then it is an issue with hardware.

I Touch won't connect to wireless router

first off, make sure you have wifi enabled in your settings. if that doesnt work hold the home and sleep buttons untill your ipod shuts off and turn it back on. sometimes i do this when something is glitching on my ipod. check to make sure your your pass word is correct too.

p.s. if you are really desperate, hold your home andsleep button untill your ipod shuts off, then continue to hold untill your ipod reboots. once it starts to turn on, just keep holding down the home button and NOT the sleep button anymore. a screen should pop telling you to connect to itunes. your computer will detect it in recovery mode and you can continue to restore on your computer. you can restore it that way or just do it by hitting the restore button in itunes :)
