Like all electronic devices, iPods sometimes freeze and become unresponsive.
Sometimes iPods lock up when they're dropped on the ground or come in contact with water, but less destructive accidents may also cause them to stop working.
All versions of the iPod have a way to reset their hardware should they stop playing music or refuse to turn off.

Check the "Hold" switch on the top case of your iPod to be sure it isn't activated.
An iPod will appear frozen and unresponsive if this feature is activated.
A lock symbol will appear on your iPod's screen if it is in Hold mode.
Switch the "Hold" button on and off once. Place one finger on the "Menu" button and another on the center button.

Press both buttons at the same time and hold them for up to 8 seconds.
Release the "Menu" and center buttons once the Apple logo appears on your iPod's screen.
Try releasing the buttons and pressing and holding them a second time if the logo does not appear, as it can sometimes take several tries to reset a severely frozen iPod.
Press and hold the top button and the center "Home" button on a frozen and unresponsive iPod touch to reset it.
Hold the buttons for at least 10 seconds and wait for the Apple logo to appear on the screen, then release the buttons.
Connect your iPod to its powerblock or a computer if it is still frozen.
Wait 5 minutes and then try to reset it.
Sometimes an iPod can appear frozen when its battery runs out and just needs a few minutes of power to start working again.

You are going to need a computer with the latest version of iTunes on it and unfortunately this will fully erase all data on the device Its called Forced Recovery.
So with the device plugged into your PC, iTunes open, if it shows up in iTunes eject it, or cancel the prompt to restore a device in recovery mode.

Hold down the Power button for 3 seconds

Without releasing the power button, also hold the Home button for 10 seconds

Without releasing the home button, release the power button and keep holding the Home button for About 20 seconds.

iTunes will detect an iPod/iPhone in recovery mode, let off button and set down device and hit RESTORE in iTunes.

My ipod touch is stuck on a screen that says "ipod is disabled, try again in 5,785,421 mintues"


Connect your iPod Touch to your computer. Turn your iPod Touch off (hold down the top button and slide the red off slider). Then hold down the top button and the home button for ten seconds then let go of the top button while still holding the home button and KEEP holding it for up to 30 seconds. If it doesn't work the first time, try it again - iTunes should pop up and say that it sees an iPod Touch in restore mode. Click restore and you'll be able to get it back up...

My ipod says its disabled and that it needs to connect to itunes...wat do i do? i have tried pressing the lock button and the menu button...it didnt work...UGH!!


Maybe you're doing it wrong. Here's one way of putting your ipod touch to DFU mode:
  1. Plug/connect your device to a computer (PC or Mac)
  2. Turn it OFF
  3. Press and hold the POWER and HOME buttons together for EXACTLY 10seconds
  4. Release the POWER button but keep holding the HOME button until the computer beeps indicating that a USB device is recognized.
  5. Open iTunes and restore your device.

Warning: Restoring will delete all data on your device but this is the only way for you to recover it.


If you don't get it at first, try holding the buttons for lesser time.
For the other procedures and to see some screenshots, go read the complete instruction (link below):

I pod touch help


You unplugged the thing before it was done.  Hold the power button at the top and home button at the bottom for 10 seconds, then let go of the top power button while still holding onto the home button for 10 more seconds.  This will reset the thing.  Then just hook the ipod back into your computer and try again my friend.

Ipod is disable and showing connect to itunes


You might be able to restore the iPod, you just need to put it in a different mode. Try plugging it into your computer. Press and hold both the sleep and home buttons at the same time until the screen goes black (can take longer than 10 seconds) then let go of the sleep button (the button on the top of the unit) while keeping the home button held in (the button on the front of the iPod). Keep the home button held in until your computer recognizes new hardware. You should hear some sort of sound coming from your computer speakers. That and the "installing new hardware" notice should come up in your taskbar (this is where you computer shows the clock). Let go of the home button once this happens. Open up iTunes and then restore it.

Just a little FYI - it may take longer than 4 minutes before you can a response. You might want to wait at least a few hours before bumping your thread. Remember that this is a normal work week and not everyone is on these forums during normal working hours (ie 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM). Most of the traffic here on iLounge is during the evening.

Try turning off your ipod, holding the home button, and plugging it in, while still holding the home button, until a picture of the ipod cable appears pointing to the itunes symbol. this will reset you ipod, and you don't need the passcode to make it usable again.
