Font.f1 {font: 12.0px Helvetica} Thanks for asking your question with Fixya Support. I will be glad to assist you.

If your iPod is locking you out, there are a few steps you can try:

One:
Press and hold the Play/Pause button to put it to sleep. When you wake it, the Enter Code screen appears.

Two:
If that does not work, then
Connect iPod to the primary computer you use it with (the first one iPod synced with), and open iTunes. When you disconnect iPod from the computer, it will no longer be locked.

And Three:

If the neither of the first 2 options does not help resolve the issue, you will have to perform a restore
I have a link here for you from Apple Support directly regarding an iPod restore process. Use this as your last resort:

Link: Restoring your iPod back to factory settings

Let me know if this helps. It would be great to get a reply from you that your iPod is finally unlocked!

How to disable ipod


Your iPod touch shows a lock symbol on the top of the screen when it's in lock mode. This protects your iPod from being accidentally bumped on or off while you're focused on other things. Getting in and out of lock mode is somewhat intuitive, but can take a couple of tries the first time.

What Does Lock Mode Do? Lock mode keeps you from accidentally turning your iPod on or off.
This helps save battery life if you have it locked while it's asleep.
It prevents your music from turning off if you've put your iPod in your pocket. However.
it's not an advanced security feature -- anyone can bring your iPod out of lock mode if they know how.
Lock Symbol When you see the lock symbol on the top of your iPod touch's screen, it always means that the iPod is in lock mode. There's no other reason for that symbol to appear. If it appears and your iPod is not in lock mode, just turn your iPod touch off and then on again and it should disappear. b> Entering Lock Mode b> Press the Sleep/Wake button on the top right of the iPod touch. You may need to hold it down for a couple of seconds. Don't hold it down for too long, as ten seconds or so will force a restart and turn your iPod completely off and then on again. b> Exiting Lock Mode b> Press the Sleep/Wake button again, and wait a moment for the screen to light up. You'll see a slider bar that prompts you to slide it to wake up and unlock the iPod touch. Put a finger or thumb on the solid part of the slider, then slide your finger to the right. This gesture is simple, but might take a couple of tries. You need to tap firmly on the slider, then keep contact with the iPod as you slide to the right.

How do i unlock my apple ipod touch that has been disabled if ihave forgotton the passcode and no longer have the original itunes account


Hello Chrissie,

I recommend the following:
  • Connect your iPod Touch to iTunes
  • Hold the power and home buttons at the same time for 10 seconds.
  • The screen should go black, now release the power button
  • Make sure you do not release the Home key until your iTunes says "We have detected an itouch in recovery mode."
  • Then just restore your iPod and it should be unlocked

Step 2: After a few moments, scroll down the left side of your screen until you see your iPod. Select it.

Step 3: The right side of your screen should now show the general information about your iPod. Scroll down the right side of your screen until you see a button labeled "Restore"

Step 4: Click OK. Give it a few minutes and your iPod will be restored to factory settings WARNING: ALL THE INFORMATION THAT WAS ON YOUR IPOD WILL BE ERASED. Once the iPod is restored, it will be able to sync with whatever is in your iTunes library.

How can i disable my ipod touch?


Do I read your question correctly: you want to disable your iPod?
Or do you want to recover it from being disabled?
For the first one, to disable your iPod:
  1. Turn ON the passcode-lock by going to Settings> General> Passcode Lock> ... and then, tap Turn Passcode On.
  2. Now, to disable it, put your iPod to sleep by pressing the POWER button once. Then wak it up. You will be asked for the passcode before you can use it.
  3. Enter an incorrect passcode several times to disable the device.
Now, if what you want is to recover your device from being disabled, all you need to do is read this tip:

How do i unlock ipod touch 32gb....


Hello,

there are two options by which you can unblock the code on your ipod. Follow any of the procedures tomorrow.

Unlock with the Primary Computer
  1. Plug the iPod into the primary computer linked to that iPod, the first computer you synchronized it with unless you have designated another computer as the primary computer.
  2. Open itunes and sync the iPod as normal.
  3. Remove the iPod, following the normal removal procedure. The iPod unlocks automatically as you remove it.
Unlock by Restoring
  1. Restore the iPod to factory settings if you do not have access to your primary computer. This erases all of the data you have stored on the iPod.
  2. Plug your iPod into the new computer you want to be the primary computer. Open iTunes and click on the "Restore" button.
  3. Reload your data, if it is available and sync your iPod. Remove it following normal procedures.
Good luck.

Why is my iPod touch disabled for 5009752 minutes


The iPod touch is disabled when the incorrect unlock code is entered too many times. The time the iPod makes you wait increases each time an incorrect unlock code is entered.

There are two ways you should be able to unlock the iPod.
First, connect the iPod to the computer it was last synced with. After iTunes recognizes the iPod, you should be able to enter your unlock code and unlock the iPod.

If the first method doesn't work or you don't remember your unlock code, then do this:
1) Turn the iPod off.
2) Hold down the Home button and connect the iPod to the computer it was last synced with.
3)Release the Home button when the iTunes image appears of the iPod's screen.
4)Wait for iTunes to recognize the iPod and then follow the onscreen directions to restore the iPod.

If neither method works, you will need to contact Apple Customer Support.

How r u?


Hello catdaddy77,

You can disable the lock on the iPod simply by connecting the unit to the primary computer that you use to update the MP3 player and opening the iTunes software. When you disconnect the iPod it will be unlocked.
