I dont think i can help you fix this but if you jailbreak your ipod, they make an app which helps you compensate for the broken home button. i stumbled across it the other day while surfin through apps in installer. look up "ziphone" in google and procede from there to find the app which fixes your problem! give me good rating if this helps

Try holding both the power and home button for 15-30 seconds, if that doesn't work hold just the power button for about 3 seconds, and while still holding the power button press and hold the home button for 15 seconds and then release the power button and hold the home button for 30 more seconds. this should hopefully get the iPod to work

I got a itouch today and the person that i got the itouch from forgot the password and i cant unlock my itouch.

Put the iPod into DFU mode. It will wipe everything off your iPod but it will at least make sure you can get into it.
  1. Locate the Home and Power buttons on your iDevice. The Home button
    is the round button below the screen; the Power button is the
    rectangular button located on top of your iDevice.
  2. Plug your iDevice into your computer
  3. If you can’t count well in you head, look at a clock that displays
    the seconds because the timing of these steps is very important.
  4. Press and hold the Home and Power buttons for 10 seconds. The screen should cut off at around 8 seconds
  5. While still holding the Home button, release the Power button.
  6. Continue holding the home button for about 15 seconds.
  7. The screen will remain off and the iDevice will look unchanged,
    but, if you’re on Windows, you will hear the connected hardware sound;
    if your on a Mac, iTunes will open and tell you that your iDevice is connected in “Recovery” mode.

Error (13) in itouch keeps showing when restoring, HELP!!!! how can i fix my itouch out of this freezed screen displaying a cd and usb port.....PLEASE!!!

From Apple Website 1. Restart your computer (yes, you have too)
2. plug in your ipod touch (it should have the usb cord and itunes picture on the screen)
3. open itunes.
4. itunes will recognize the ipod. just ignore the message, and then hold down the home and hold button (on the top) for about 10 seconds, and after you count to 10, release the top hold button, but still holding home.
5. itunes will pick up the ipod, and once it does, release home.
6. Now click restore, and everything should work fine.
(if problem persists, try turning off firewall, and close all other programs)

ITouch crashed and wont restart

try this
  1. Press and hold the Home button while reconnecting the USB cable to iPod. When you reconnect the USB to iPod, the device should then power on.
  2. Continue holding the Home button while iPod starts up. While starting up, you will see the Apple logo.
  3. When you see "Connect to iTunes" on the screen, you can release the Home button and iTunes will display the recovery mode message:
  4. Restore and it'll download ~240mb firmware and you're done
If step 1 shows no reaction on your screen,the screen may have got damaged.

My ipod is disabled

While your itouch is connected to your computer, and itunes is open, press and hold the sleep/off button (the one on the top of the itouch) until the slider comes up on the screen. Slide the slider to turn off the itouch. Now, press and hold the home button (the one right below the screen) and at the same time, press the off/sleep button again. Hold both until you see your itunes page bring up a "restore" feature. Unfortunately, when restoring, you will lose all data (songs, etc..) Hopefully, you have this data in itunes and can easily download it back onto your itouch. This is the only thing that works. Sucks that you lose everything, but at least your itouch will once again work....

I just bought an ITouch, but cannot get it to work. It is just a black screen and will not show up in my ITunes. Any suggestions?

try resetting the itouch - press and hold the home botton and the sleep/wake button at the same time for about 10 seconds. If it does not come back to life and the battery is charged, you will need to take it in for service
