To reset, make sure the unit is charged first, then:

Hold the top power button down AND the [] home key at bottom front down at the same time. Keep holding until you see apple symbol.

Option 2:
Use iTunes and restore the unit from the computer it is sync'd with and you should not loose any data unless additions since lasts sync.

Ipod is disabled, how do i restart it ?


The iPod Touch is a type of iPod that features a touch screen and can function as both a portable media player and as a pocket computer.

It is possible to password protect your iPod Touch so that you will have to enter a password every time you want to unlock the iPod Touch screen.

If you repeatedly enter the incorrect passcode, your iPod Touch will become disabled.
To unlock a disabled iPod Touch, you need to sync your iPod Touch device with iTunes on your computer.

Attach the iPod Touch data cable to the bottom of your iPod Touch device and attach the other end of the data cable to an available USB port on your computer.

Open iTunes on your computer and then select your iPod Touch device from the list of available devices on the left side of the iTouch window.

Click the "Restore" button.

If you have previously backed up your iPod Touch, you can choose to restore the device to the last back up or any saved backup.

If you have never backed up your iPod Touch, this process will restore your iPod Touch's factory settings.

Wait while iTunes syncs with your iPod Touch and restores the device.

iTunes will prompt you when this process is complete.

or
A hard reset restores your iPod Touch to its original factory settings.
This is useful when your iPod Touch is disabled and won't turn on or off, but all your data is erased.

Luckily, you can restore your data with iTunes after you've performed the reset.
Once you've performed the reset, your iPod is wiped clean and iTunes prompts you to restore the settings from your last sync.

Plug the iPod into your computer and wait at least 10 minutes.
This allows the battery to recharge in case it has drained.

This could fix your disabled iPod, if the problem was caused by a dead battery.
Click "OK" if your computer opens a "Connect to iTunes" alert box.

Depending on your version of iTunes, the message may indicate the iPod is in "recovery mode" and you need to restore the device.

ITunes opens and resets your iPod for you.
Unplug the iPod from your computer if you don't see the "Connect to iTunes" alert box.

Make sure the iPod is charged before you attempt the hard reset.
Press and hold both the On/Off/Wake button and the Home button on your iPod.

Keep the buttons pressed.
Wait for the Apple logo to appear, it may take 10 seconds or longer.

When you see it, release the On/Off/Wake button but keep the Home button pressed.
Release the Home button when you see a picture of a USB cable with an arrow pointing to the iTunes logo.

Plug your iPod back into the computer.
The iTunes "recovery mode" message will appear.

Click "OK" to complete the reset.

How do i reset my ipod touch


If you are talking about resetting after your iPod Touch has hung, you need to press and hold the top and home buttons until the screen goes black. If the iPod Touch displays the "Slide to power off" message, ignore it and continue to hold down both buttons until the screen goes black.

Turn on the iPod Touch by pressing the top and home buttons together again just briefly. It will take a while for the iPod Touch to start up from this type of reset.

If you are looking to restore the iPod Touch to factory defaults, you need to start iTunes on your computer and plug your iPod Touch into your computer with the USB cable that came with it. Click on the iPod Touch from the list on the left side and press the "Restore" button.

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:

http://manuals.info.apple.com/en_US/iPod_touch_3.0_User_Guide.pdf


Hope this helps.

Best regards,

CellPhBuddy.

My ipod touch wont work


If iPod touch won't turn on, or if the display freezes or doesn't respond
  • iPod touch may need charging. See "Charging the Battery" in the iPod touch Features Guide.
  • Press and hold the Home button for at least six seconds, until the application you were using quits.
  • If that doesn't work, turn off iPod touch and turn it on again. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button on top of iPod touch for a few seconds until a red slider appears, and then drag the slider. Then press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.
  • If that doesn't work, reset iPod touch. Press and hold both the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
If iPod touch continues to freeze or not respond after you reset it
  • Reset iPod touch settings. From the Home screen choose Settings > General > Reset > Reset All Settings. All your preferences are reset, but your data and media are left untouched.
  • If that doesn't work, erase all content on iPod touch. From the Home screen choose Settings > General > Reset > "Erase All Content and Settings." All your preferences are reset, and all your data and media are removed from iPod touch.

To reset the iPhone or iPod Touch, press and hold down the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button simultaneously 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, reset is done.

Pin locked apple ipod 16gb


Apple Supportdocumented how to perform a reset. However, note that resetting theiPhone or iPod is not the same with restoring the iPhone or iPod.Restore will erase and wipe out completely all information and datathat contained inside the device, including musics, songs, videos,contacts, photos, calendar information, call lists, maps, applicationsinstalled and any other data. All iPhone or iPod Touchsettings are restored to their factory condition. Meanwhile, reset ismore about hard reset, for those familiar with terms associated withPDA, Palm or Windows Mobile. In other word, reset is simply a forcedreboot, where power is cut off from iPhone or iPod Touch to restart the device from fresh.

To reset the iPhone or iPod Touch, press and hold down the Sleep/Wake button and the Homebutton simultaneously at the same time for at least ten seconds, thenthe LCD display will clear and the Apple logo appears on the blackbackground. When Apple logo appears, reset is done.
