    I had this problem.  I held down the power switch to power down completely.  Takes a few seconds.  Then use the power switch to turn on.  Might take a couple goes.

  • My iTunes won't recognize my iPhone 6 when I plug it up

    My iTunes won't recognize my iPhone 6 when I plug it up. I reset my phone and its still not recognizing my phone. Is there another way I can put the music from my library on my phone? How can I fix this?

    Did the iTunes ever recognize the iPhone 6 before?

  • My touch screen does not respond to my "slide to unlock". reset does not help. iPhone 4S works otherwise.

    my touch screen does not respond to my "slide to unlock". reset does not help. iPhone 4S works otherwise.

    I cannot use it. I can get calls and text messages but I can't respond because the screen is locked and I can't "slide to unlock" because the touch screen does not work.

  • TS3217 When I try to skip one song on my ipone, it skips through several. The songs that are skipped can be played on the same iphone if I go into my itunes and select that song. So this tells me that the song can be played, therefore, it is not the song.

    When I try to skip through a song on my iPhone, it skips through several songs. The songs that are skipped can be played on the same iphone (when I go into to itunes library on my phone), so I know that it's not the song. I have the latest softeware downloaded on both my iphone and itunes. In fact, this only recently started occuring when I reconnected my iphone to my laptop about a month ago to install the new updates on itunes.
    I also have an itouch and an ipod, both of which have been updated at the same time as my iphone and they do not skip through songs.

    Try:
    - Reset the iOS device. Nothing will be lost
    Reset iOS device: Hold down the On/Off button and the Home button at the same time for at
    least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
    - Unsync all music and resync
    - Reset all settings      
    Go to Settings > General > Reset and tap Reset All Settings.
    All your preferences and settings are reset. Information (such as contacts and calendars) and media (such as songs and videos) aren’t affected.
    - Restore from backup. See:                                 
    iOS: How to back up                             
    - Restore to factory settings/new iOS device.
    BTW this is the iPod touch forum

  • I got an iphone 4. I had to update my macbook pro to Lepard just to sync. I updated to lepard. Now when I try to sync itunes does not recognize my new iphone 4 as mine and wants to erase everything I have bought using the phone.

    I upgraded from Iphone 3g to iphone 4. I had to update my macbook pro to Lepard just to sync. the **** thing with the new iphone 4. I bought and updated to lepard. Now when I try to sync itunes does not recognize my new iphone 4 as mine and wants to erase everything I have bought using the phone before it will sync! It says everything on the phone now will be cleared in order to sync it with my existing info on the computer from my previous iphone. How can I just get everything from my current iphone 4 into itunes, basically add it to the info from my previous iphone 3g that is currently in my itunes?  I dont want to lose what I have on my phone currently....I paid money for half the apps for crying out loud.
    I was so frustrated by this when I first bought the phone that I just pushed it out of my mind and NEVER synced it. Please help...

    Nope - you cannot restore a backup from a newer iOS version on to a device running an older iOS version.  The reverse works, but in your case to use your backup, you must update to iOS 7.0.3 - no other option if you want to use that backup.

  • I have Windows Professional and I used to be able to move the curser over the Firefox icon in the taskbar and it would give me a telescoped view of all open tabs, now it just shows the tab that I'm currently viewing. How do I fix this?

    I have Windows 7 Professional and I used to be able to move the curser over the Firefox Icon in the taskbar and it would show me a telescoped view of all open tabs, now it just shows the tab that I'm currently viewing. How do I fix this?

    Hey MikeDo,
    Do you have the option checked for ''Show Tab Previews in the Windows Taskbar''? If not, just go to ''tools->options->tabs.'' You can find more information on what each of these settings do in the Knowledge Base article [[Options window - Tabs panel]].
    Hopefully this helps!

  • I have an iMac 27" which is 4  years old and probably overdue for a clean-up. Is there any good reliable software out there that would help? Has anyone had any experience of 'Mackeeper'?

    Check how many applications are starting when you log in, I found that if there was a lot of activity at login Finder did not display the icons on the desktop correctly, again like you it did not occur at every login, just occasionally.
    For Safari have you tried resetting Safari, if that does not help you could disable plugins and extensions one at a time. You may find one of those is causing the problem.

  • ITunes won't recognize my iPhone 5 when I plug it into my computer but it chargers

    When I plug my iPhone 5 into my windows computer, it comes up as an iPhone camera and won't show up in iTunes. Can someone help me out? I want my music.

    Hello,
    On this Apple site, I am seeing alot of issues with Iphones not working and Imessage not working. If I were you, I would tell Apple Support to let them know whats happening.
    Here is the link for Apple Support:
    http://www.apple.com/ca/support/contact/
    I would also try holding the Sleep (On/Off) button and the Home button for 10 seconds. Then let it restart.
    Hope I helped! Good Luck.

  • Password is working on all devices except Apple TV?  Has anyone had this problem?

    The password for the account works for everything we donM- download songs off the iPad, get into this forum, etc, but tonight it says it is the wrong password for our Apple TV?  It is all hooked up to the same account and we are not sure what to do?

    Hi,
    I had this exact same problem. My credit card had expired. Following a hint inone of the forums, I updated the credit card details for my new card through the iTunes app on my computer, and I can now sign in from the appleTV. Try that.

  • Itunes won't recognize my iphone 4 when i plug it in

    This happened last time when I tried to update/sync my phone to itunes. Last time it erased my entire phone and library and I had to backup from a previous store.

    connect the usb wire to the phone but not to the pc , then unlock your phone , hold the home button , then plugin the other end of the cable to the pc , it should recognise.

  • I attempted to email a picture from my iPad Camera.  The system locked up.  Has anyone had this experience and if so how was it cleared? And when cleared how can I send a pic without locking it up again?  Thank you

    See above re lock up email when sending pic from carera on iPad.
    TX

    I'm sure others will disagree with this, but rather than email directly from the camera app, email the photo from the Camera Roll album in the Photos app. When you snap the photo - the picture is saved in the Photos app. You should be able to email directly from the camera app, but if it causes problems, try emailing from the Photos app.
    There are any number of reasons why the app may have locked up. Unless you can recreate the issue and can pin it down step by step, there is no definitive way to track down the cause.

  • Iphone 4 will not charge and itunes does not recogise it at all.  When I plug it in to charge it says that it needs to be restored.

    My iphone 4 will not charge when I plug it in, it will turn on but it says that it needs to be restored and will not do anything else.  When I plug it into itunes it isn't recognized at all.  I took it into the verizon store and they were not any help at all.  My phone isn't under warranty anymore so they don't care.  Please help, I had to go back to my old phone, a droid and I hate it so much.

  • Ipod touch 5 - when in song suffle mode, a random album will suddenly appear on the screen and then it is difficult to get back to the song that is playing

    Just "upgraded" to a new ipod touch 5th generation after previously using various ipod classics.  So I am not familiar with all the ins and outs of the device.  One thing that I have a problem with is the fact that there does not seem to be a simple way, while in shuffle mode to quickly move to the next song or back to the prior song.  But forgetting that for a moment, here is my problem and I am trying to figure out if it is a bug or simply some kind of "feature" of the ipod touch that I don't get.
    I am playing music...in song - shuffle mode.  All of a sudden, instead of the particular song that is playing, a different album shows up on the screen.  Meanwhile, the original song keeps playing.  When this happens, sometimes that album then starts playing and sometimes I am able to move the ipod touch in various directions and I can get back to the song that I was originally playing.  Any idea what is happening here and how to stop it?
    Thanks for any help.

    Hello Philly,
    I believe that when you reset your ipod(command given from the computer, right?)  touch WHILE the ipod was updating, It cleared the system in the middle of writing files, thus corrupting(equivalent of cutting of in the middle of a sentence) the basic running system.
    I suggest you go to an apple store and ask for a technical diagonosis in person. they may offer to help if the problem is fixable. If your ipod is still under warrenty, i would guess it would be free/low cost.
    ~Remember, I am just giving an educated guess on limited information

  • ITunes screen automatically scrolls to show current song - how to disable?

    Whenever a song starts playing in iTunes the screen instantly scrolls to show the song details. This is very annoying when browsing the library while listening to music as you have to scroll back to the spot you were at each time a new song starts.
    Is there a way to disable this pointless 'feature'?

    Here is an update. Actually what is happening, is the view of the album (in the top with the pictures of the albums) switches to what is playing after a few seconds of inactivity, and the list of songs below that stays where I left off. But when the song is over, the list also switches to the new song that is playing. How do you keep this from happening?
