My Ipod touch Safari application has the bookmarks screen in front to the browser page, so I can't load new pages. the touch screen is unresponsive except for the 'new page' and 'back and 'forward'...

I would reset the ipod touch by pressing and holding the sleep/wake button and the home button at the same time for at least 10 seconds until the apple logo appears. Hope this helps.

Water on my i touch

Well that grey ring was water and im not completly familiar with touches but like most electronics that get wet you have to let them dry and this is usually a long process so u can let it dry and not have it for a couple monthes or if its still under warranty get a new one

My IM600 won't power up.

Did you accidentally get the unit wet? I've been touching the power and volume buttons with wet fingers, and my unit just died. Also found a bit of a sticky residue on the pin inside the power connector on the back. I believe the button design allows for water to leak in, resulting in a short circuit.

Zune pad 120 Gig

After researching several blogs and forums on problems with previous versions of Zune
the general concensus was to allow the batteries to drain away and die completely,
and then try reconnecting.

This took about a day and a half, and when we connected the device to the PC
it must have "re-initialized" the controls as it booted up, all the features now worked.

Happy 18 year old, more importantly, Happy parent.

Hope that this helps......................

As far as I no, no. The memory probably just shows that it has loaded in the firmware (operating system) and whatever else it requires to function.
