Ipod froze


A white screen on an iPod Touch is the sign of a generic error, meaning you won't get a specific error message. Usually when this happens the white screen won't change and the iPod is frozen on that screen. Apple Support outlines a specific series of steps to take to deal with this problem, from turning the iPod Touch off to completely reinstalling the operating system if necessary.

What the White Screen Means The white screen is a sign that a software error has occurred in the iPod Touch. Unless you received an error message first, it's usually something near the root level of the iPod's operating system that caused the iPod to cease functioning normally. Rather than shut off completely, it goes to this white screen to let you know there's been an error. Unfortunately you usually lose unsaved information when this occurs. b> Resetting b> Try turning the iPod Touch off, then on again. This is the simplest way to reset your iPod Touch. If it remains stuck on the white screen, force a reset by holding down the Sleep button (top right corner) for about 10 seconds. The screen will go dark, then the Apple logo will appear. If it turns off and doesn't turn on again, the battery may be too low. b> Restore b> If a manual reset doesn't work and the screen remains stuck on a white screen, you'll need to restore the iPod to reinstall its operating system. Plug your iPod, via its charger cable, into your computer. Open iTunes and click on your iPod, then the "Restore" button on the main screen. b> Problematic Apps b> If you consistently receive a white screen while using a particular app, the app may be faulty or installed incorrectly. Try re-syncing the app to your iPod Touch and see if that solves the problem. Otherwise, you may need to delete the app to avoid the white screen problem.

When i turn my ipod on it only lights up to a blank white screen and won't do anything else


Try reseting it to factory settings plug it into the computer allow iTunes to start and it should fix the problem as long as it detects the device.

If this helped please rate

My screen will be black blank and when i push the button it will still be blank but white


Reset the iPod Touch, by pressing and holding down the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button 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 again, the reset is done.

How do i charge my ipod


To charge the battery, choose one of the options below:
  • Connect the device to your computer (not your keyboard) using the included cable to charge the battery and sync. Your computer must be turned on and not in sleep or standby mode. If the device is connected to a computer that's not turned on or is in sleep or standby mode, the battery may drain.
  • Connect iPhone or iPod touch to a power outlet using the included cable and a USB power adapter to charge the battery.
An icon in the upper-right corner of the screen shows battery charging status. If you charge the battery while syncing or using iPhone or iPod touch, it might take longer to charge.
Note: If using a portable computer, make sure it is plugged into power and that the lid or display is open. If the lid is closed, the computer may go into standby, sleep, or hibernation mode and iPhone or iPod touch may not charge.
Important: If iPhone or iPod touch is very low on power, it may display one of the following images indicating that the device needs to charge for up to ten minutes before you can use it. If the device is extremely low on power, the display may be blank for up to two minutes before one of the low-battery images appears. If you don't see the white charging or plug icons, your iPhone or iPod touch may be connected with a FireWire cable. Disconnect the FireWire cable and connect the iPhone or iPod touch to a USB cable or dock.
that should be everything you need to know about charging an iPod Touch. If you require further assistance please feel free to followup with additional comments. If this solution solved the problem please feel free to rate it. Thanks and have a great day-Midwest-Tek

When i turn on my ipod, there is just a blank white screen


Ooh, blanks WHITE screen normally means there is a hardware break, try putting it into recovery mode:
Hold the Power and Home buttons together for 10 seconds, release the power button and continue holding for another 5 seconds, then plug into iTunes and restore it.
If that doesn't work I hope you have warranty because it'll be a hardware error :(
Sorry I ccouldn't have better news!

DFU means:
Device Firmware Update, hence it’s a mode where the iPod Touch device will be made to force restore into whatever versions it’s given with.

If you're not trying to 'restore' it, take it out of this mode
[If you are, you should be installing firmware]

Here are instructions that are Windows & MAC compatible:
[remember this is HOW to get to DFU mode

Before you begin, turn on your iPod Touch (make sure it won’t auto lock, to prevent mistakes), and connect it to iTunes. Once iTunes shows your device, perform the following steps:
Step 1: Hold down the “Home” button
Step 2: Hold down the “Standby” button
Step 3: When it says “slide to turn off”, ignore it. It should restart with a blank screen. Look at iTunes, and your device should be removed. Now lift the Standby button, while still holding onto the Home button.
Step 4: Keep holding the Home button until the iPod reconnects on iTunes. When the device shows up in iTunes, that’s when you’ll need to lift up your button. If you wait any longer, it will go into Recovery Mode, and that’s not what you want. Your iPod should be blank.
Step 5: Now iTunes will tell you that the iPod Touch is in Recover Mode.

______________________________________________________

If you didn't know exactly how you got where you are, or you want to change the mode, use the directions to guide you.

If that doesn't solve it, post back with more details
