On the iPod touch 1st Gen device, the home button is prone to failure due to the design, most can be fixed for a nominal fee, fixed mine, it was one of the hardest iPods to repair for its time, but with practice, is usually never an issue. Once it is open, then the removal of the battery and then the logic board removal requires experience. As far as the button is concerned, Usually, the "pop" disappears and it feels stuck in the down position, simple fix by introducing an iPod Touch 4th Gen device design upgrade (as far as button is concerned.)
This particular model, the iPod Touch 1st Gen, does not have a replaceable home button module design. It is part of the logic board and so it has to be repaired and not replaced. The small outer disc can be removed and recovered, clean or replaced with another comparable size disc, if the issue is with moisture exposure, corrosion. The sign for moisture exposure issues is that it still "pops" but no longer functions.
I have repaired these successfully and with no issues. www.zfixit.com Ipod touch 16gb(1st) home button not working. How - 78c71099-06cd-4a93-9b81-39199bce2261.jpg

SOURCE: my home button wont work

hi guys dont worry about it. its not really a major problem because sometimes the ipod has really really tiny malfunctions like this and no, im not from the apple store so dont ask anyway all you have to is this: plug in your ipod to the computer using the usb cable. now it should say that it is syncing if not, sync your ipod. while it is syncing, press cancel sync on your ipod touch and it should cancel and take you back to the home screen. This shouldnt happen again but if it does, at least you have a way to return to your home menu cya :)

SOURCE: Ipod Touch Home Button

This usually happens if the membrane of the sleep/wake button deteriorates and the gold plated contacts between membrane and logic board do no longer establish good contact.
There are specialized online tutorials with iPod Repair instructions that will guide you through the steps of taking it apart and reinforcing the contact or replacing the button altogether otherwise you'll have to send it to any third party iPod repair service and they'll replace the membrane for you.

SOURCE: iPod Touch, 1st gen, "slide to unlock" broken

If you jailbreak (quickpwn.com) there is an app on cydia that will change it to tap to unlock rather than slide so it should be more sensitive.

SOURCE: 16gb ipod touch 1st gen sleep wake button doesn't work.

Connect to itunes and do a restore from there. Assuming you can switch the thing on! Mine is the same, It started with the wake button only working sometimes, then by itself and eventually squeezing the case near the wake button would do the trick. I did try to fix but without success. These are very fiddly and the wake button disconnects from the main board when the case is opened making it very hard to test.
When not in use I keep the brightness at minimum and set the auto lock to never.
Good luck

My 16gb apple ipod touch was disabled because i had gotten my pass code. how can i enable it to start functioning?


Hey, If its the ipod with home and power key, all what u have to do is to press the 2 buttons in the same time for 10 seconds and then realise the power key and keep holding the home key for another 5 seconds.

That will put your ipad into DFU mode or recovery mode.

Plug it to itunes, itunes will come up with a message saying that it detected your ipod in recovery mode, and it will give you the option to restore the sw and wipe the device completely.

Then everything should be fine

My Ipod Screen Went White And Now It Wont Turn On, How Do I Fix It?


Try to reset it. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until either the Apple logo or battery symbol appears. If the battery symbol appears, continue to charge iPod touch until it is fully charged.

If this doesn't work, try restoring the iPod

Ipod touch 1st Gen turns off during restore. (Need Help!) Please?


You might want to try holding the top button and the home button until it turns on, then let go of the top button. Keep the home button held down until the "Plug Into iTunes" picture comes up. You should be able to normal restore now. If this doesn't work, just go get it repaired.

Apple ipod touch home button does not return to the home screen.


Where does it go? Does it work at all? if it does then the problem is in preferences
Check: Settings>General>Home you will discover where it is set to go
Now if the home button does not work at all, then it is a hardware issue and you need Apple (for free if under the one year warranty) or a tech store to fix it.... probably better off getting a new one considering the price they charge
