Question about MP3 & Digital Media Players
I had the same problem. I pressed the power button and the home button at the same time for about 10 seconds and then the home page showed up.

Hold in the square box on the bottom of the itouch and the black one on the top to turn it on and off for about 15 sec's

I've had the problem multiple times and i thought the only way to get it back to normal was to plug it into itunes, restore it, and then sync it but theres a faster way. You press the on/off button and the home button at the same time, holding for 15 seconds and it works.

Turn itunes on, plug your ipod in. it should show up. click and hold home and top (power button) at the same time until ipod touch goes away from itunes then turn the ipod back on,, it should work know.

My iTouch 8G 4th generation screen is black. It has a full battery charge and you can hear the sound when you touch the screen. I have done the power on hold down button solution (did not work) several times. It does sync with my itunes on my computer. Any solutions?

I would guess that you have a version bought around 1 or 2 years ago. That's actually normal, coz those versions tend to be a little slower. So here's what you gotta do. Get a good, working USB cable and plug your ipt to a computer. Leave it there to charge by itself for the longest time possible, i would say around 5 to 10 minutes. Eventually it will open on its own.
If that doesn't work, restore your device over at iTunes.
