You need to perform restore to remove the code

Restore

  • Note: Because Restore erases all of the songs and files on iPod, make sure to back up any files you've saved on the iPod disk. All of your songs, videos, podcasts, audiobooks, and games can be loaded back to your iPod provided that you have them stored in your iTunes Library.

How to restore your iPod:
For Windows:

  • 1. Make sure you've reinstalled the latest version of iTunes.
  • 2. Open iTunes, and then connect your iPod to your computer.
  • 3. After a few moments, it will appear in the source list in iTunes.
  • 4. Select your iPod in the source list and you will see information about it appear in the Summary tab of the main iTunes windows.
  • 5. Click the Restore button. You will be prompted with one or more restore options that may prompt iTunes to automatically download of the latest iPod Software. The 4 possible restore options are:
    • Restore Option 1: Restore - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod.
    • Restore Option 2: Use Same Version - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod even though a newer version is available.
    • Restore Option 3: Use Newest Version - Restores with the latest iPod Software on your computer.
    • Restore Option 4: Restore and Update - Restores with the latest iPod Software on your computer.
  • 6. A progress bar will appear on the computer screen indicating that the first stage of the restore process has started. When this stage is completed, iTunes will instruct you to leave iPod connected to your computer to complete restore.
  • 7. During the stage 2 of the restore process, the iPod will show an Apple logo as well as a progress bar at the bottom of the display. It is critical that the iPod remains connected to the computer or iPod Power adapter during this stage. Note: The progress bar may be difficult to see since the backlight on the iPod display may be off.
  • 8. After stage 2 of the restore process is complete and the iPod is connected to the computer, the iTunes Setup Assistant window will appear asking you to name your iPod and choose your syncing preferences similar to when you connected your iPod for the first time.

Ipod touch is locked forgot password cant unlock


plug it into your computer and through itunes on your original computer you will be able to reset it. If it is not the original computer that you are using you will be able to reset it but will probably lose the information on it.

I need help... i forgot the lock code to my iPod HELPP MEEEEE


There is only one way to remove a lock key besides actually knowing the password. You have to restore your ipod. This can be done by hooking the unit up to itunes, and clicking on the restore button. This will make you lose all the data on your ipod, but your ipod will unlock. If all of your data is on itunes, you dont have to worry all of your data will just load back on your ipod. If you have any further questoins feel free to contact www.wiredextreme.com.

How to unlock my ipod


Hook the iPod up to the computer you set it up on and open iTunes. When you disconnect it it should be unlocked. If you are not using the original computer that you set it up with, you may need to do a restore within iTunes.

How do I Unlock Ipod screen if I forgot the 4 digit password?


This is a bad idea, if you lock it. Follow the guide to it:

1. Get your Ipod Charger (USB) and charge it in on your laptop/computer.

2. Make sure you got the latest Itunes, if not go to www.apple.com

3. Of course you will lose all of your data, songs, videos.
4. Click Restore on Itunes

5. After it finishes restoring, write your Ipod name and click ok.

6. Unplug the USB Cable and click any language you come from.

It should finally work by now.

PS(1): Sorry to lose all of your data.
PS(2): Instead of locking with the combination code, look on the bottom side (the one with the headphone, USB, etc...) there is a lock on the left side. If you push it its lock. To unlock push it the other way around.

Hope this helps! If not, reply this back to me with a problem.

Hi jak 1116,

I'm not sure what you mean by code... Visit Apple's website and go to their Discussions area, they have help for all things iPod related there.

Please rate if at all useful, thanks!
