When the Apple Logo is stuck
If this happens, put the iPod into Disk Mode through the diagnostic menu. Then connect the iPod to your computer and update or restore the iPod. Sometimes you can get away with just updating the iPod, so try that first, but usually you have to restore the iPod . As always make backups of your music files, because the restore procedure will eliminate them.

Your iPod touch is currently in recovery mode. You probably accidentally disabled it that's why you can't restore it over iTunes.
What you need to do is put it to DFU mode in order for you to proceed with the restore on iTunes. To do that, follow these simple steps:
Plug/connect your device to a computer (PC or Mac)
Turn it OFF
Press and hold the POWER and HOME buttons together for EXACTLY 10seconds
Release the POWER button but keep holding the HOME button until the computer beeps indicating that a USB device is recognized.
Open iTunes and restore your device.
Warning: Restoring will delete all data on your device but this is the only way for you to recover it.
If you don't get it at first, try holding the buttons for lesser time or see the other procedures and some screenshots on my tip (link below):
If it was locked and you donot know the password then the only thing you can do is restore it using dfu mode hold both power and home button until it turns off and restart and show you to connect to iTunes. Then restore it. Let me know what happened
When the ipod shows a USB cord it means the unit needs to be restored. Try plugging the unit up to itunes, and clicking on the restore button. Don't get discouraged if this does not work on the first try, it may take several attempts. If the unit is still having problems, it can be a main board issue. Contact Apple and see if the unit is still under warranty with this site: https://selfsolve.apple.com/GetWarranty.do
The serial number can be found on the back of the unit toward the bottom. If you have any other questions feel free to contact www.wiredextreme.com.
