Question about Apple iPod MP3 Player
The only way to bypass the lock code is to do a hard reset. sorry there is no way around this.
iPods with Click Wheels - iPod Nano, iPod Classic, iPod 5th Gen, iPod Color, iPod Mini
To perform an iPod hard reset for the above models, start by toggling the hold switch from off to hold, then back off again. Press and hold down the Center button (middle of click wheel) and the Menu button. Continue to hold these buttons down until you see the Apple logo on the iPod screen (approximately 6-8 seconds).
If the hard reset doesn't work the first time, try it again a couple more times. Sometimes it works the second or third time around.
If the iPod hard reset is still not working, try connecting your iPod to a power source, or computer, and then doing the hard reset.
*For older iPod models, you may need to hold down the Play/Pause button and menu button, rather than the Center button and Menu button
To perform an iPod Shuffle hard reset, first disconnect the iPod from the charger (if connected). Move the power switch to the Off position. Wait 5-10 seconds for the iPod to fully power off. Move the switch to the play in order, or shuffle position. For iPod Shuffle 2nd generation, move the power switch back to the On position.
*No matter what version of iPod Shuffle you are using, when you move the shuffle/play in order/on switch you should see a green stripe.*
To perform an iPod Touch hard reset, start by turning the iPod Touch on. Press and hold down the sleep/wake button until you see the Apple logo on the screen. Next, you need to turn the iPod Touch completely off. Press and hold down the sleep/wake button until you see the red slider. Slide the slider to turn off the iPod Touch. This should fix any potential problems you are having with your iPod Touch.
If you are unable to turn off iPod Touch, you can try doing a manual reset. To do so, hold down the sleep/wake button and home button at the same time. Continue to hold them for at least 10-15 seconds. Wait for the Apple logo to appear.
