My daughters ipod touch has a locked icon on th top in the middle of the screen and I can not slide the bar, what has happended & how do I fix it? This is a second hand 8gb ipod touch that was working...

I have had a similar problem that you listed before.
What your daughter's iPod is experiencing is a broken touch sensor on the screen. She must have either dropped it, or accidentally smacked it into something hard. This will cause the touch sensor to break.
There are only two options left to resolve the problem: 1. Go to the Apple Store and pay them a fee to fix the device.
2. If you are looking to buy a new iPod, give the Apple Store your old one and they will give you 10% off.

Why NOT to jailbreak your iPod

Hello to all that happen to come across this Tip of mine! As you may have seen from the title, this Tip is about why someone should NOT jailbreak their iPod Touch or iPhone. <br /> 1. This is the main reason that makes people reluctant to jailbreak their iPods; it breaks your 1-year manufacturer warranty that comes free with the device. This means that if you iPod breaks, you will not be able to send it into Apple to get it repaired without having to pay a fee depending on the damages (as opposed to being free if it weren't jailbroken). Now many people have told me that if their iPod did break, they would simply restore it back to factory settings, and that Apple won't be able to tell that it was ever jailbroken, which makes sense, right? WRONG. After an iPod has been jailbroken, Apple WILL be able to detect that has been, even if you restored it. <br /> 2. It slows down processor speed! Why would anyone want to slow down their iPods just so they can customize some certain features? Is it really worth slowing your CPU for a custom ringtone or a picture in the background of your iPod? It certainly isn't in my opinion. <br /> 3. IT'S ILLEGAL, that's right, you heard me, illegal. Apple now has copyright laws that now go against jailbreaking iPods. <br /> 4. The new features may seem really cool at first, but trust me, you'll start to not care anymore after the first 2 weeks. <br /> 5. If you do decide to jailbreak your iPod, and then a new Firmware comes out, you'll have to wait until Development teams create new software that will crack the new Version of the iPod, which will hold you back from getting cool features that Apple may have released. <br /> See? When you think about it, there really isn't much of a reason to jailbreak your iPod in the first place. <br /> Thanks for reading, this is Rippster1214, out.

Cracked ipod touch screen

If I am not mistaking the warranty does not cover being left in a hot car. Try calling apple and tell them you just got your Ipod touch 2 days ago and you were downloading songs to it and while doing so it overheated and cracked. Thats considered a mechanical problem. Good Luck!

My ipod chromatic just stopped working. i unplugged it from my computer and forgot to eject it first now it is frozen onto the screen that says connected eject before disconecting and it says its still on...

Toggle the 'hold' button on and then off... then hold down the menu button and the centre button at the same time for 10 + seconds... an apple logo should appear, this should restart your ipod... if i doesn't go back to normal, from the apple screen just plug it in to your computer again and it should work!!!
Hope this helps!!!!
