How do you fix your ipod touch when you stop it in the middle of when its updating its software. all i get is a white screen or a screen with lines running down it. please help!!

this happened when i was updating it from ios 5.0.1 to 5.1 i had to stop it before it was done updating and now all i get is a frozen screen.

- Try a reset:
Reset iPod touch:  Hold down the On/Off button and the Home button at the same time for at
least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
- Then connect to computer and try to restore via iTunes.
- If screen remains on (white, has lines etc), let the battery fully drain. After charging for an hour try the reset and restore as necessary.

  • If you lose your ipod touch and you have a warranty how much would you have to pay to get a new one?

    if you lose your ipod touch and you have a warranty how much would you have to pay to get a new one?

    Full price. Warranty covers only manufacturing defects, not you losing the iPod.
    Perhaps homeowners insurance of your credit card plan, if you used a credit card to purchase the original iPod, might cover all or part of the cost.
    Regards.

    For how to restore:
    iTunes: Restoring iOS software
    To restore from backup see:
    iOS: Back up and restore your iOS device with iCloud or iTunes
    If you restore from iCloud backup the apps will be automatically downloaded. If you restore from iTunes backup the apps and music have to be in the iTunes library since synced media like apps and music are not included in the backup of the iOS device that iTunes makes.
    You can redownload most iTunes purchases by:
    Downloading past purchases from the App Store, iBookstore, and iTunes Store        
    If problem what happens or does not happen and when in the instructions? When you successfully get the iPod in recovery mode and connect to computer iTunes should say it found an iPod in recovery mode.
    If you previously synced to the computer then you may be able to recover use of the iPod without erasing the iPod by following the instructions here:
    Disabled Recovery-must use syncing computer.

  • How do you fix your ipod touch when it wont turn on?

    my ipod touch wont turn on. It just shut off completley, and when i go to charge it, it still wont turn on. How do I fix it from home?

    After letting it charge for a little while, did you try performing a hard reset of the iPod?  To do this, press and hold both the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons together long enough for the Apple logo to appear.  Keep in mind that this make take a few tries.
