    I have a 16G itouch and it will not turn on, I get as far as the apple logo on the black screen and then it turns off! I have reset it to factory settings, removed my itunes and reinstalled on my computer, changed the USB cord and tried the hard reset by holding the on/off button and black button on top at the same time! None of this works, any ideas? Any ideas on where I can take it to get it repaired? It was a gift and I do not have a receipt.

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.

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.

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?

SOURCE: my itouch wont turn on after jailbreak

Hi,
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.

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.

I forgot my itouch password, and it wont unlock


Hi,

The only option is Restore or Reset.

Hold down the power and home keys down for about 10 seconds each while plugged into itunes. When the screen goes black, release the power button but keep holding the home key until itunes says. We have detected an itouch in recovery mode.

From there you can restore as normal via iTunes.

Thanks.

My itouch is new and all of a sudden white blank screen. I restores more then 5 times and it would clear up but nope goes and dissolves into the white screen again. I mean my itouch hasnt dropped or...


Take you iPod Touch to a nearby Apple store and they will give you a new one.
Or send it to apple and they will give you a new one.
This is a well documented problem that apple is replacing ipods with this problem
your itouch is under warranty...use it

Itouch is frozen on white screen & wont turn off


Try doing a hard reset: hold the hard buttons for 20 seconds.

Heres a video to see for example.
