Even though it cannot turn on, it's a good sign that it is connecting to iTunes (the tab, N/A).

Place the iPod into DFU Mode, or force restore.
(The tell-tale signs are not present due to its display being off)

Restart the computer or, if possible, try on another comp.
*Be sure it is connected via USB Cord.
1) Hold down the home and power (top) button for 10-15 seconds
-If the tab appears on connection via USB, it will disappear
2) Let go of the power (top) and continue holding the home button for 30-35 seconds.
-The tab will reappear with a popup preceding it.
*It is now in DFU Mode.

Now try a regular restore with iTunes. Ignore the firmware you have downloaded and just use stock 2.2.

If the errors continue, then restart the computer and be sure all iTunes processes are ended. Also, it can be finicky and may just need a little bit of time.
After each error, follow the above steps to place it into DFU Mode and try again. It can get tedious, but give it time and it'll work.

After it goes to stock 2.2, you can then downgrade with your 2.1 firmware and jailbreak via QuickPwn.

just google the said softwares here.they are free wares. but before you start you should have the latest itunes intsalled in your computer and restore the ipod touch agin. and youre done

My iphone5 wont come on just stays on apple

Try holding the Power Button, top-right, and Home Button bottom-middle for 10 seconds until the Apple goes away and returns.

This is called a Soft Reset.

Hopefully this resolves the issue.

Iphone has turned off and not responding, when plugged in to my pc it says it couldnt connect due to an unknown response. help

plug the phone into the computer. when the apple is visible on the screen, press and hold the home and lock buttons simultaneously until the phone screen goes away and comes back on. when the apple comes back on continue holding the home button, but not the lock button. this will completely erase everything on the device, but you can restore it via itunes.

The apple appears on the screen and never goes away. 3GS

Turn the iphone off, hold the menu button, now plug in the usb cord that is connected to the computer. Keep holding the menu button until a dock connector appears on the screen. You're now in recovery mode and should be able to restore your iPhone. If that doesn't work you may have a broken logic board. Here is an iPhone Repair Guide that shows how to open an iPhone. Boards are easily available on Ebay2_bing.gif. If you want somebody else to do it for you go to iPad Repair

Iphone 2g not starting back up after reboot..

When the device is locked up like this hold down the lock and home buttons. After a few seconds the device will turn off, immediately let go of both buttons. Now press down and hold the home button. Hit the power/lock button one time. Continue holding the home button until the phone boots up. It will need to be connected to iTunes for recovery at this point.

I dont know if this will work for you guys but i had the same problem but when i download a new app the problem goes away. It works for me whenever this happens and hopefully it will work for you too, so just get some crappy free app then delete it later.
