Ipod restore problems


Restoring iPod to factory settings Learn how to restore iPod, iPod classic, iPod mini, and iPod nano to factory settings.

Background

It's important to understand the difference between updating and restoring. Updating simply installs the software that controls iPod and does not affect the songs and files stored on iPod's disk. Restoring erases the iPod's disk and restores iPod to its original factory condition.
Warning: Because restoring erases all the songs and files on iPod, back up any files you've saved on the iPod disk. All of your songs, videos, podcasts, audiobooks, and games can be loaded back to your iPod provided that you have them stored in your iTunes Library. If you use the Nike + iPod Sport Kit, see this document for more information.
Note: See this article if you need to restore an iPod shuffle.

How to restore iPod

  1. Verify that you have an active Internet connection, because you may need to download new versions of the iTunes and iPod Software.
  2. Download and install the latest version of iTunes if necessary.
  3. Open iTunes. Connect your iPod to your computer using the USB or FireWire cable that came with your iPod.
  4. After a few moments, your iPod will appear in the Source panel in iTunes.
  5. Select your iPod in the Source panel. You will see information about your iPod appear in the Summary tab of the main iTunes window.
  6. Click Restore.
  7. If you are using a Mac, you will be asked to enter an administrator's name and password.
  8. A progress bar will appear on the computer screen, indicating that stage one of the restore process has begun. When this stage is done, iTunes will present one of two messages with instructions specific to the iPod model you are restoring.
    • Disconnect iPod and connect it to iPod Power Adapter (typically applies to older iPod models).
    • Leave iPod connected to computer to complete restore (typically applies newer iPod models).
  9. During stage two of the restore process, the iPod displays an Apple logo as well as a progress bar at the bottom of the display. It is critical that the iPod remain connected to the computer or iPod power adapter during this stage.
    Note: The progress bar may be difficult to see, because the backlight on the iPod display may be off.
  10. After stage two of the restore process is complete, the iTunes Setup Assistant window will appear. It will ask you to name your iPod and choose your syncing preferences, as it did when you connected your iPod for the first time.

How to restart a disabled ipod


If you enter the wrong passcode repeatedly on an iPod Touch, it will display a message that says "iPod is disabled." At first, the iPod will only be disabled for a minute, but if you continue to enter the wrong passcode, it will become disabled for longer periods of time, and finally, you will need to connect it to the computer with which you last synced it. From here, you will need to restore the iPod Touch to factory settings.

Open iTunes. Click "iTunes" in the upper-left corner, then select "Check for Updates" to ensure you have the latest version. Connect your iPod Touch to your computer with the USB 2.0 docking cable. Click your iPod's name under "Devices" on the left-hand side of the iTunes browser. Click the "Summary" tab. Click "Restore." Follow the prompts in the dialog box that appears to finish the restore. Your iPod will return to factory settings. Choose to set up the iPod as a new iPod or from a backup in the screen that appears when the restore is complete.

Forgot my code for ipod a1236


The iPod model A1236 is the iPod 3rd generation Nano. This specific model Nano is characterized by its small, square shape; the models before and the models after are long and narrow. If you find that some files will not open on the iPod or you continuously receive errors, you have two different options of trying to correct this issue. You can reset, or restart, the iPod, or you can reset the iPod to its factory default settings. You will lose all of your information if you choose to restore the device to its factory settings.

Open iTunes on your computer and connect your iPod to the computer using the iPod USB cable. Connect the small side of the cable to an open USB port on your computer, and connect the large side to the bottom of your iPod. Select the Nano device on the left side of the window. Click the "Restore" button within the devices "Summary" tab and confirm that you want to restore the iPod to its factory settings. The restoration process begins after you confirm. Wait for the progress bar to complete. The restore will be finished when you see the "iTunes Setup Assistant" appear on your computer screen. Reset with the Click Wheel Slide the "Hold" switch to the on position, and then to the off position. Press and hold the center button and the "Menu" button at the same time. Hold the buttons for six to eight seconds until the Apple logo appears. The iPod will reset after the logo appears.

you might have to reset it to factory settings

The 4th generation iPod is a portable media device that can play music, videos, and display photos.

Occasionally, you may run into issues with the iPod where the player has trouble working.


Restoring your iPod to its factory settings will often correct any software issues the player may have by wiping all of the data off of the iPod, and restoring its software to its original condition.


Restoring your 4th generation iPod can be done in just a few minutes, and requires the help of your computer.


Connect your iPod to your computer using the included USB cable, just as if you were going to sync it to add music or other data.


Launch iTunes if it does not launch automatically, and select your 4th generation iPod from the list of devices on the left side of the screen.


This will launch information about your iPod in the main iTunes window.


Click the "Restore" button in the middle of the iTunes window to begin restoring your 4th generation iPod to its factory settings.


Your computer may ask you to enter an administrative username and password to continue. A progress bar will then appear letting you know the status of the restore.

I just checked the apple site. To reset an iPod turn the on/off switch on and off and then hold down the menu and center button until you see the apple symbol. According to apple, that should reset it.

Download and install iTunes 7.0 or later if you do not already have it installed. Open iTunes, and then connect your iPod to your computer using the USB or FireWire cable that came with your iPod.
