Hello bsureshmkr,

If you have locked your iPod and cannot remember the unlock code you will need to use your iTunes software to unlock the MP3 player. Connect the player to the primary computer you use to add music to the iPod. Then start iTunes and synch the player as normal. When you are done synching and disconnect the iPod from the computer it will be unlocked.

Best Regards,
Ken

My ipod touch 4th generations says ipod disabled connect to itunes, but screen is locked


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. Hope this helps.

How to hard reboot your ipod touch if it is locked


So if anyone has ever forgotten their ipod touch's passcode or somehow gets locked out and can't get back in even if you restart it, you can try the one and only solution, the hard reboot. It works great, except you will lose all data on the ipod touch. There are two ways to complete this task successfully, first of all you can use the first way i learned, which is: hold both the top screen lock button and the home button for about 8-10 seconds, and the slide to power off thing should pop up, don't slide it though. When you reach this point you release the top screen lock button but continue to hold the home button until the ipod turns off, then it won't turn back on until you plug it in to a computer and then restore it using itunes. The second way is a little bit easier, you just have to hold down the screen lock button and the home button at the same time for 30 seconds and this will do the same thing as the first method. Thanks for reading, I hope this helps :D

Shorter Simplified Version: Hold down sleep and home button until you see the restarting apple logo, then release the sleep button and continue holding the home button until it shows the sign to plug into your computer then restore.

Hello

If a "Locked" message appears on the screen and the unit turns off, release the lock by sliding the "Hold" button on the left side of the player up into the unlocked position. Press the "Power" button again to turn the player on.

There is a hold/lock switch on the player - you need to unlock it. Refer to your user's manual in order to see a picture of where this hold/lock switch is.

Release the screen lock


There is only one way I know of for that problem. Go into iTunes and do a reset. You will however have to upload all your music again as this will erase the content.
