IPod Touch (4th gen) wouldn't start after overheating from an after market wall charger

My son used an after market iPod charger and after a few minutes after he unplugged the cord the iPod wouldn't start. More than that: it was getting hot even without beeing hooked to the charger. After 30 min was back to normal temperature but it wouldn't start.
Any hope to get it running again? The On/Off + Home reset didn't worked.

- Synced media like apps and music are no included in the backup that iTunes makes. If that media is not in the iTunes library it will not be on the iPod after restoring from backup or updating.
- Redownload your purchased by:
Downloading past purchases from the App Store, iBookstore, and iTunes Store
Then try restoring from backup. If you have a backup made when the iPod was update then you should get your apps data back. Go to iTunes>Preferences>Devices and see if by the date of the backup it would included the data.

  • Ipod touch 4th gen won't show anything on the screen after "reset all settings" option??

    okay, here's the situation.
    1. I DID NOT under ANY CIRCUMSTANCE Jailbreak this iPod. in fact,  the iPod was FULLY reformatted, and had a whole new library put on it prior to the malfunction.
    2. the iPod WAS FULLY WORKING BEFORE i selected the "Reset all settings" Option from the Privacy menu
    3. I have tried ALL of the reset steps, including, but not limited to; DFU mode, Force reset, Hard reset, Hard reset, Force-into-itunes, and the like.
    So, knowing that I HAVE NOT jailbroken this iPod, and I have tried EVERYTHING tio fix it, what might the problem be? please, someone help ASAP.
    Brandon.

    Try:
    - iOS: Not responding or does not turn on
    - Also try DFU mode after try recovery mode
    How to put iPod touch / iPhone into DFU mode « Karthik's scribblings
    - If not successful and you can't fully turn the iOS device fully off, let the battery fully drain. After charging for an least an hour try the above again.
    - If still not successful that usually indicates a hardware problem and an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store is in order.

  • My new iPod touch 4th gen is not working only showing apple icon! Been on charge for ages! And have tried to re set it turning off coming back to icon screen then not doing anything from there! Help!

    New iPod touch. Been working fine, needed charging so have charged it for ages. Only apple icon screen is appearing and nothing else! Have tried re setting still nothing! Help!

    - See:      
    iPod touch: Hardware troubleshooting
    - Try another cable. Some 5G iPods were shipped with Lightning cable that were either initially defective or failed after short use.
    - Try another charging source
    - Inspect the dock connector on the iPod for bent or missing contacts, foreign material, corroded contacts, broken, missing or cracked plastic.
    - Make an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store.

  • IPod Touch 4th gen unable to install apps

    Not sure where to start really. OK basically my iPod touch 4th gen is unable to download apps from the app store or any content from the iTunes app, the only way I can get new content on to my device is to sync it with iTunes on my mac (which isn't convenient for me)
    after about 3 weeks of running my iPod without any problems, it starts out of nowhere and it doesn't matter what firmware I am running (it has happened on 4.1 and 4.2.1) the only way to fix it is a full DFU restore even more annoying than not being able to install apps without my mac.
    Here is the message I get: http://i.min.us/ijfOIK.PNG
    Anyone know what is up with my iPod? I have an old Touch 2G as well and its never done this to me.
    Note: i am not jailbroken, but i have a few friends and family members that are jailbroken and have never had this problem.
    if anyone knows anything i would appreciate it as i am now on my 13th DFU restore thanks to this problem

  • My ipod touch 4th gen dosen't work with my intempo speakers!

    I got my speakers when that old square ipod nano came out. My speakers worked fine with that ipod. i just got a new ipod touch 4th gen and when i put it on my speakers it says "charging is not supported with this device" and when i play music it just plays through the built in speaker not the speakers its pluggen into
    HOW DO I GET IT TO PLAY THROUGH MY SPEAKERS ITS SOOOO FRUSTRATING!!!!!

    Some older accessories are not supported by the latest iPOd and some older ones with the latest iOS.  Have you checked the manufacturer's website?

  • Battery life of the ipod touch 4th gen

    hi,
    i was just wondering how long the ipod touch 4th gen's battery life is meant to last for 1 complete charge? (if screen brightness is down to minimum, auto brightness on, no wifi, airplane mode on, etc).
    please include gaming time length + music time length expected.
    thanks

    No.

  • IPod Touch 4th Gen starts from the same song

    I recently updated my iPod Touch 4th gen, 32 GB to iOS 6.1.2, from 5.1.1. I skipped iOS 6.0, 6.0.1, 6.0.2, 6.1, and 6.1.1. After the update, I noticed that when I play music from my "All Music" list, my iPod always starts on the same song, no matter what song I listened to last. Sometimes it starts at a song that's farther down the list, but I haven't been able to figure out what circumstances caused it to start at that song. To make things more confusing, once it chooses a different song, it always starts from that song.
    I have confirmed that Shuffle and Repeat are both OFF. This issue occurs whether I have recently charged/synced my iPod or not. It also occurs after I perform a hard restart on the iPod. I have not tried restoring it, because I have not had time to dedicate the several hours it would take to re-install iOS and copy all of my stuff back onto it.
    My computer is running Windows 7, 32-bit. My iTunes is version 11.0.2.26.
    Any help would be greatly appreciated, and if anyone has questions relating to this issue, I'd be happy to answer them.

    I didn't mention this in my initial post because I didn't think it was relevant, but the Home button on my iPod doesn't work. I've been using the virtual home button provided by turning Assistive Touch on.
    I did try the first solution you suggested, but nothing happened. I'll make another post when I try the second method.
    On a side note, and if it makes any difference, the device in question is not a phone. It's an iPod Touch.

  • Daughter's iPod touch 4th gen is stuck in recovery mode, won't turn on after I restore it, please help...

    My daughters iPod touch 4th gen is STUCK. Somehow it was disabled because of too many password attempts (my younger daughter was pushing numbers). I connected it to iTunes, did the press and hold power button + home button, then let go of sleep button. iTunes recognized it, gave me the option to restore it and did its thing. Here's the problem, now it won't GET OUT of that mode. After the first attempt, it wouldn't power on after I disconnected it from the computer. So I hooked it up again, and it says its detected an iPod in recovery mode and offers me the same "update & restore" option it did originally. Now what??? Please help. My daughter just got this two weeks ago for her birthday.

    Try:
    - iOS: Not responding or does not turn on
    - Also try DFU mode after try recovery mode

    - If not successful and you can't fully turn the iOS device fully off, let the battery fully drain. After charging for an least an hour try the above again.

    or
    Maybe:
    Restore loop (being prompted to restore again after a restore successfully completes)
    Troubleshoot your USB connection. If the issue persists, out-of-date or incorrectly configured third-party security software may be causing this issue. Please follow Troubleshooting security software issues. .
    Next try placing in DFU mode and then restoring.

  • Ipod Touch 4th gen won't sync after Ipod restore

  • IPod Touch 4th Gen isn't detected on Windows 7 Starter

    Device: iPod Touch 4th Gen (lastest update)
    iTunes Version: Latest Version
    Operating System: Windows 7 Starter (A netbook computer)
    My friend just started having this issue with his netbook where his iPod Touch will not be detected at all not even under My Computer. It will charge the device however it will not sync.
    Before he had the iTunes Wifi Sync on, but it wasn't really working either for some odd reason.
    On booting iTunes I noticed it kept coming up with the need to downgrade to be compatible for iTunes to run probably. I assume the latest version of iTunes cannot naturally run on Windows 7 Starter with downgrading to a lower compatiblity likely either it downgraded to Vista or XP compatibility.
    I was wondering with it was an iTunes sync service was not turned on, but another friend had brought her iPhone and right away that device appeared in iTunes so it appears to be a issue with the iPod itself. We swapped usb cables in hopes that his older more worn cable may have been the issue, but still not luck.
    We had used all of the following listed from this page: http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1538. As well as another which I can't seem to find that had about 15 items to try.
    So basically it doesn't show up as even a usb device in the "Device and Printers" window or as a device under "My Computer".
    Thanks for your time.

    - As asked for the versions since many users think that have the "latest" when they do not have the latest version/
    - Q4: I said no that the iPod Touch 4G does not show up in iTunes/My Computer in my post. Please My question read my post.
    My queston is does your iPod show up in iTunes when you conenct the iPod to another computer.
    "If you connect the 4G iPod to another computer does it show in iTunes/My Computer?"
    If no:
    - Inspect the dock connector on the iPod for bent or missing contacts, foreign material, corroded contacts, broken, missing or cracked plastic.
    - 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.
    - Make an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store.

  • Is it still possible to downgrade from ios 6 to ios 5.1.1 on my ipod touch 4th gen as of Sept.24?Also, if I use a backup created AFTER updating to ios 6 when I restore/downgrade to ios 5.1.1, does it become ios 6 again because of the backup?

    There has never been a legit way to downgrade.
    It will always restore to the latest available software.

  • Ipod touch 4th gen needed a new screen and sleep/wake switch.  So, I replace them.  I was able to get to settings and do "erase all content and settings".  I am not able to totally shut this device off as it keeps restarting after a few seconds.

    Ipod touch 4th gen needed a new screen and sleep/wake switch.  So, I replace them.  I was able to get to settings and do "erase all content and settings".  I am not able to totally shut this device off as it keeps restarting after a few seconds.  I have used itunes to restore and also recover.  Device will actually shut off and stay shut off if I leave it connected to the computer.  The moment I unplug (3 seconds) the apple logo appears, it boots, unlock screen appears, I can unlock and operate normally, unplugged or not.  Just cant get it to completely shut down unplugged.  Any thoughts?

    Apple will not help since you worked on the iPod yourself.

  • IPod touch 4th gen won't restore or power on after dropping it on its back "waiting for ipod"

    My iPod touch 4th gen was recently dropped on its back after playing with its case. It turned white, then powered off.
    After that i tried restoring and now everytime itunes stays on the "waiting for ipod" step.
    I know that all functions work because I successfully entered dfu mode many times, and the lcd powers on but the progress bar doesn't move while itunes says waiting for ipod.
    Thanks for looking at my thread and sorry if i misposted (first time apple forum user)

    Something has been jarred inside. Anecdotally, people have reported success smacking their device again, to maybe rejarr things back into working order. But doing that is your call since it could be defined as abuse.
    If it's physically damaged inside, there may not be much of a user fix for you to try unfortunately.

  • After updating iOS on my iPod touch 4th gen my Philips speaker dock DC290B/37 no longer charges the iPod.  It will play music but not charge, is there anyway to find out if Apple is working on an update/fix?

    Try:

    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.
    - 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: Back up and restore your iOS device with iCloud or iTunes
    - Restore to factory settings/new iOS device.                       
    Otherwise you are out of luck. Apple is not making any more update for the 4G.
    Also check with Phillips. Maybe they have an firmware update available
