How to disable ipod


Your iPod touch shows a lock symbol on the top of the screen when it's in lock mode. This protects your iPod from being accidentally bumped on or off while you're focused on other things. Getting in and out of lock mode is somewhat intuitive, but can take a couple of tries the first time.

What Does Lock Mode Do? Lock mode keeps you from accidentally turning your iPod on or off.
This helps save battery life if you have it locked while it's asleep.
It prevents your music from turning off if you've put your iPod in your pocket. However.
it's not an advanced security feature -- anyone can bring your iPod out of lock mode if they know how.
Lock Symbol When you see the lock symbol on the top of your iPod touch's screen, it always means that the iPod is in lock mode. There's no other reason for that symbol to appear. If it appears and your iPod is not in lock mode, just turn your iPod touch off and then on again and it should disappear. b> Entering Lock Mode b> Press the Sleep/Wake button on the top right of the iPod touch. You may need to hold it down for a couple of seconds. Don't hold it down for too long, as ten seconds or so will force a restart and turn your iPod completely off and then on again. b> Exiting Lock Mode b> Press the Sleep/Wake button again, and wait a moment for the screen to light up. You'll see a slider bar that prompts you to slide it to wake up and unlock the iPod touch. Put a finger or thumb on the solid part of the slider, then slide your finger to the right. This gesture is simple, but might take a couple of tries. You need to tap firmly on the slider, then keep contact with the iPod as you slide to the right.

How to hard reboot your ipod touch if it is locked


So if anyone has ever forgotten their ipod touch's passcode or somehow gets locked out and can't get back in even if you restart it, you can try the one and only solution, the hard reboot. It works great, except you will lose all data on the ipod touch. There are two ways to complete this task successfully, first of all you can use the first way i learned, which is: hold both the top screen lock button and the home button for about 8-10 seconds, and the slide to power off thing should pop up, don't slide it though. When you reach this point you release the top screen lock button but continue to hold the home button until the ipod turns off, then it won't turn back on until you plug it in to a computer and then restore it using itunes. The second way is a little bit easier, you just have to hold down the screen lock button and the home button at the same time for 30 seconds and this will do the same thing as the first method. Thanks for reading, I hope this helps :D

Shorter Simplified Version: Hold down sleep and home button until you see the restarting apple logo, then release the sleep button and continue holding the home button until it shows the sign to plug into your computer then restore.

Why does my iPod keeps turning itself on when I lock it?


iPods have no traditional on/ff switch. They power up with the slightest touch, which makes turning the iPod on as simple as touching the menu. Turning the iPod off, however, can be more tricky. Waiting for automatic shut off wastes battery life, and surfing the menus yields no way to stop the device from running. Turning off the iPod Nano, though, is almost as simple as turning it on.

Locate the "hold" or "lock" switch at the top of your iPod Nano. It will be located on the top of your device on the left side. Make sure the device is unlocked. When the device is locked, an orange bar is visible. When it is unlocked, that bar is not visible. The iPod needs to be unlocked in order to power off. Locate the "play/pause" buttons. These are located at the bottom of the control wheel. Press at the "play/pause" section of the wheel and hold for a few seconds. Your iPod will power off. Do not touch the wheel again after powering off, as this will power the device back on. Locate the "hold" or "lock" switch again. Slide the bar to the locked position so that the orange bar is visible. This will prevent your iPod from powering on in your purse or pocket and wasting battery time.

The screen has frozen up and has went black


Usually, the best way to remedy this is to do a hard reset on your device. To do that, follow the steps below:
  1. Hold your iPod like how you would hold an iPhone. Notice the lock button at the top edge of the device and the home button located on the front face of the device.
  2. Hold down BOTH the home and lock buttons until the screen turns itself off or, until you see a slider come down giving you the option to slide to turn off.
  3. Give a few moments for your device to turn off completely.
  4. Hold the lock button again for a few moments and your device will turn on with the apple logo on display. After a minute or two, you should see your lock screen. You can now use your iPod normally.

Cannot use the slide button


Try resetting your iPod by:
  1. Holding down the home button (button on the face of the iPod) and lock button (button on the top of the iPod) at the same time for a few seconds. An option to turn off the iPod should appear at the top of the screen.
  2. Slide the slider to turn off, and wait until screen is totally blank.
  3. Press and hold the lock button (button at the top of the iPod) until an Apple icon appears. Let go, and try the slider now.
  4. If that does not work, it is most likely that you damaged the touch sensor on a certain part of your screen - go to Apple to get it repaired. If you bought it within less than a year, it may be covered under warranty - which means you can get a free replacement on the spot.

Do a reset and resync.

Hope this is of some help.

Ipod freeze how do I restart


This method is to restart your ipod without erasing any of your saved things.

1. Check that your hold switch is off by sliding the switch away from the headphone jack. The hold switch is located in the top corner of the iPod. If you see orange, then the iPod is locked. To unlock the iPod, slide the switch in the opposite position.

2. Press and hold the following combination of buttons buttons simultaneously for approximately 10 seconds to reset the iPod.

For iPod 1G to 3G (scroll & touch wheel iPods): "Menu" and "Play/Pause"

For iPod 4G+ (includes Photo, Nano, Video, and Mini): "Menu" and "Select Center Button"

For iPhone & iPod Touch: "Menu" and "Sleep Button"

For Shuffle: Turn it off. Turn it on. Done.

If you have an iPod Mini or 4th gen iPod or higher, then you need to press the Menu and Select buttons. The Select button is the center button in the middle of the wheel. For older iPods (1G - 3G) you'll need to press the Menu and Play buttons to restart.

Upon reset, your will see the iPod/iPhone name and the Apple logo. When this happens, you can let go - the iPhone/iPod is rebooting. If your battery is very low, you may have to attach your iPod/iPhone to a power source.

3. The iPod name and the Apple logo will briefly appear upon a successful restart before advancing to the Main Menu.

4. If you have your iPod/iPhone connected to your computer and iTunes open, then your iPod/iPhone should mount and show up under "Devices" in the left iTunes sidebar.

30 GB Ipod Video Problem - Its locked


To reset an iPod with a Click Wheel, including: ipodnano3.jpg ipodclassic.jpg icon_ipod_5g.gif ipodnano2.jpg ipodnano.jpg ipodphoto.gif ipodg4.gif ipodmini.gif
  • iPod nano (3rd generation)
  • iPod classic
  • iPod (5th generation)
  • iPod nano (2nd generation)
  • iPod nano
  • iPod with color display (iPod photo)
  • iPod (Click Wheel)
  • iPod mini
  • iPod mini (2nd generation)
  1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
  2. Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.
Tip: If you are having difficulty resetting your iPod, set it on a flat surface. Make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel, and not near the center.
If the above steps did not work, try connecting iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical outlet, or connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is turned on and isn't set to go to sleep.
