Ahh bummer well there is one fix but ya may not like it sadly you must open the iPod up and expose all the internals to some rice now sadly the finger reader may need to be replaced by apple but the rice trick will help with the rest as for the screen digitizer (the part that lets ya move around the screen) may need replacement as well

SOURCE: Why tune tools does not detect my Ipod now? It did previously.

Hi, I just purchased Tunes Tool 2.0 today.  I hoped to use it to transfer songs from my Windows iPod video to my MacBook.  When I installed Tune Tools, the same problem occurred that you all were having;  It could not detect my iPod and gave me a notification about a null iPod.  I figured out how to fix this, and all my songs were able to be transfered onto my mac flawlessly. The steps I used are listed below.
1) Open Tune Tools and iTunes. 2) Plug in your iPod. 3) In iTunes, click the summary tab (if not already selected) 4) On the Summary page, check the box that says "Enable Disk Use" 5) A message will pop up, click OK 6) Open Tune Tools, and Your iPod's library should be there.  If not, you may have to reconnect your iPod. 7) You will have to manually highlight all the songs you want to be transfered from your iPod to your computer. 8) Once all the songs you want have been selected, drag to your iTunes Library in Tune Tools. 9) A blue bar should appear and tell you that your music is being transfered. 10) The songs will be transfered from your iPod to your computer.  
I hope this works for all of you!

Ipod touch screen is unresponsive but it makes sounds like normal


Fix an Unresponsive Ipod Screen
Many of today's electronic devices including cell phones, music players and portable game systems have a touch screen.
When a touch screen fails, it does not respond when you tap it with your finger or a stylus.
This can happen due to several reasons, such as a screen protector, dust or improper calibration.
You can often fix an unresponsive touch screen by cleaning it or resetting the device.
Remove the plastic touch screen protector sheet.
Some protector sheets are too thick and prevent the touch screen from responding to your touch. If you must use a protector screen, only use one that is licensed for your specific device.
Wipe the screen with a soft microfiber cloth.
Clean off any dirt, dust or fingerprints on the screen.

Dry your hands thoroughly.
The touch screen will not respond if your hands are wet.
Reset the device.
If your device does not have a "Reset" button, remove the battery, memory card or SIM card, then reinstall them.

Delete any third-party applications you recently installed.
Some third-party applications can cause your device to lock up or freeze.

Recalibrate the touch screen.
Look in the device's Settings menu for a calibration option and follow the prompts.

Slide your finger over the slider to turn off the device.
Press the "On/Off-Sleep/Wake" button and hold it until the iPod touch turns back on.
If you can't turn off the iPod touch, you can try resetting it.
Press the "On/Off-Sleep/Wake" button while simultaneously pressing the "Home" button when you want to reset the iPod touch, and continue to hold the buttons for at least 10 seconds, until the screen goes black and the Apple logo appears.

How do I know when the iPod Touch Is Dead


<p>Any model of iPod Touch includes major upgrades to its predecessor, with little change in physical design. At the time of publication, the iTouch has reached the fourth generation. All models have a button on the side, with a home button at the bottom. Touch screens are similar in size and functionality. Therefore, the symptoms of a dead iPod Touch are the same regardless of which model <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Keep the round "Home" button near the bottom of the iPod. If an application is frozen on the screen, this power to connect and return to the home screen. If you have an iPod Touch 4 or higher, the multi-tasking does not automatically close the app. Instead double tap "Home" button and all recently used applications are listed. Eliminate the problem through a finger on the app "X" appears in the corner. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Reset the iPod by holding down the "Home" and "Power" to disabled. The power button is located on top of the iPod Touch. Do not let go of the buttons to your white Apple logo. This will close the applications that were active and memory. This can be used when the iPod screen is black and can not be activated. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Let the iPod Touch is in a bowl of rice if you suspect water damage. The rice helps to absorb excess water and the problem can determine in a matter of days. Try not to connect the device until it is fully dehydrated. If you've tried everything without success, it is likely that the iPod is dead. <br />

After i tun my ipod touch on is stays on a black screen


Tweaking the brightness settings on your iPod touch saves your eyes from unnecessary strain.

Changing the brightness settings can be done quickly if you're on the go.


Adjusting the brightness of the screen can make the device brighter if you're in a dark environment or darker if you're in a bright environment.


Alternatively, you can set the device to automatically adjust to the level of brightness it's exposed to.


Press the "Home" button to return to your iPod touch's home screen.


Tap the "Settings" app.

Tap "Brightness." A scroll bar appears at the top of the screen.


Press and hold your finger against the circle on the scroll bar.

Drag your finger to the right to brighten the screen and to the left to darken the screen.


The screen's brightness will change as you move the circle.

Alternatively, tap the ON/OFF toggle to the right of Auto-Brightness to have the device automatically adjust itself based on the detected brightness level.


Tap the "Home" button just beneath the iPod touch home screen to save your changes and return to the device's home screen.
if this is not or cant fix the problem you might have restore it to factory settings

How to unlock it


How to Unlock an Apple iTouch

Although locking your iPod Touch prevents accidental touch commands, the feature also prevents you from accessing your media and applications while the device is locked, according to the Apple site. The lock code is the 4-digit code that was created when the passcode lock was first enabled, and displays a passcode menu prompt on the iPod Touch's screen when the "Home" or "Power" button is pressed and the unlock bar is slid across the screen.

Instructions
1 Push the "Home" button on the iPod Touch's screen, or push the "Power" button on top of the device to show the home screen.
2 Slide your finger on the iPod Touch's unlock bar.
3 Enter the 4-digit passcode using the on-screen keypad to unlock the device. If you cannot remember the passcode, plug the dock-connector cable into the iPod Touch and plug the other end into your computer's USB port. According to Apple, the iPod Touch will automatically unlock after it is connected to your computer.

Ipod touch (2nd Gen) with water damage


The touch screen is not physically attached to the screen, if water was anywhere near the bottom of the ipod it may have triggered the water damage unit inside the bottom. Water also may have leaked into the unit frying the circuits. You'll have to visit an Apple store or Apple.com/support for repair.

Ipod not getting connected to itunes nor getting charged, and please recommend which ipod converter to download. Thank you in advance my ipod is not charged, when connected to a computer


hello!

if your IPod touch is not connected to itunes, please try the ff:

Check the iPod touch Display
-- When you connect iPod touch to your computer, the iPod touch should display an image or message on the display

-- If you do not see any image, check some basic troubleshooting here: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1737
-- If you see a message on the screen, this indicates that the iPod touch does not have sufficient battery charge to operate and will need to be charged for several minutes before it can be recognized in iTunes.

Verify Windows PC System Requirements

--iPod touch requires iTunes 7.4 or later
Check USB Connections

-- iPod touch requires USB 2.0 to function properly
-- Try connecting iPod touch to a different USB port, preferably a port that is built-in to the computer instead of an external USB hub. Connecting iPod touch to your keyboard's USB ports is not recommended.

Restart your PC

-- In some cases, your computer's USB ports may become temporarily disabled or you may experience other software related issues. Restarting your PC is an easy troubleshooting step that may resolve this issue.

Verify iPod touch Driver/Service Installation

-- iPod touch requires two important pieces of software to operate properly on Windows. First, the driver must be installed; for iPod touch the driver is USBAAPL.SYS. Second, Apple Mobile Device Support must be installed as a Windows Service.
