My chinese screen touch ipod has freeze how repair it


Try connecting it to the USB or charging it. That usually works for me. :) ALSO: leave the screen turned on, in 3 to 4 hours the battery will die and WALLA, it is reset. Been there, done that, no data was lost. Just carge it up and go. Try holding both the home button and the on/off button at the same time for about 10 seconds. It should just power off with no data lost. Then just turn it back on and your good. I do this all the time and it hasn't failed me once! =)

dont forget to rate me......

good luck.....

My 40Gig 3rd (?)generation IPOD freezes Itunes, and having reset it several times still does not work in Itunes. It will play songs as a stand alone unit but is not recognised by itunes or my computer...


With this issue if when you connect your ipod to itunes it freezes
it is one of 2 issues

1) Your ipod has an error on the disk and the computer cannot read so it freezes - in this case it is a hard ware issue with the ipod and you need to get it repaired

2) Your anti- virus is trying to scan the ipod for virus and it can so rather then letting the ipod connect to your cpu it freezes the process till you disconnect the ipod -

A great test would be if you can take this to another cpu and try it if it freezes that cpu too then it is the ipod - if it works fine then it is the anti-virus you need to stop the scan and fix process.

Keeps freezing on me, especially when I forward to


Your best bet would be to do a soft reset of the ipod:
  1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
  2. Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.
Tip: If you are having difficulty resetting your iPod, set it on a flat surface. Make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel, and not near the center.
If the above steps did not work, try connecting iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep.
To reset iPod, iPod (scroll wheel), iPod (touch wheel), and iPod (dock connector) ipodg1-2.gif ipodg3.gif
  1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
  2. Press and hold the Play/Pause and Menu buttons simultaneously until the Apple/iPod logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.


If this does not work then you may have to re-format the ipod in itunes. If you click on the ipod in itunes you should see a RESTORE option on the main page.

My mini ipod freezing, showing charger sign i could not turn it to menu


I would attempt putting the ipod into disc mode and see if your ipod is recognized by the computer after you reconnect it. I have researched this issue and found a knowledge base article on apples web site that may help you out with this.
Here are the steps to do it...

Putting iPods with a Click Wheel into disk mode
  1. Before placing the iPod into disk mode, you should verify that it is charged.
  2. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Set it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
  3. Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons for at least 6 seconds until the Apple logo appears.
  4. When the Apple logo appears, release the Menu and Select buttons and immediately press and hold the Select and the Play/Pause buttons until the Disk Mode screen appears.ht1363_2.jpg
  5. Connect the iPod to your computer; the screen on the iPod will change and say "Do not disconnect"
If you are having difficulty putting the iPod model into disk mode, set it on a flat surface. Make sure that the finger pressing the Select button is not touching the Click Wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Play/Pause button toward the outside of the Click Wheel and not near the center.
If you are still unable to put your iPod with a Click Wheel into Disk Mode, use one finger from one hand to press the Select button, and one finger from the other hand to press the Play/Pause button.

If it won't go into disc mode while not connected to your computer, try doing the above steps with it already connected to you computer.
If none of these steps work, it is sadly probably time to get a new ipod. I hope that it does help you out though. Good luck :)

When you reset iPod all your music and files are saved, but some customized settings may be lost. Date and time is preserved (unless the iPod reset itself because it had no power and then was reconnected to power). Other customized settings, such as Bookmarks, On-The-Go Playlists, Shuffle, Backlight timer, and so forth are preserved from the last time the hard drive turned on. Good luck, and I hope this helps.
