it seems to be indented into the iPod itself. would Apple fix that? if so, what is the approximated cost of repair?

If under warranty and the iPOd is defective, Apple will replace the iPod ant no cost.  Otherwise they will excahnge the iPod for a refurbished one for a flat price depending upon the capacity, for a 4G it is $99, $149, or $199.

    To give you something, I need something too, like
    How old is the Ipod? (if it is still under warranty, then send it to Apple service shop)
    Are you running Windows iTunes or Mac iTunes?
    What do you see on the iPod screen?
    My guess is, your iPod classic is more than 2 years old and out of warranty, and the hardisk has gone kaput! and need to be replaced.
    Have a nice day!

  • What do I do with my iPod Touch 4g when the home button does not work and when I plug it in to charge it always says that charging is not avaible with this accesory?

    iPod Touch 4g home button won't work plus will not charge properly

    Take it to a reputable third-party repair shop. Apple will not touch it after you have opened it up and tinkered with the works.

  • My home button is not working

    my home button is not working

    I had the same problem. The home button not working. Also the charging stopped and I could not connect the a host with the USB cable. This happened after 4 month of usage (heavy usage by my siblings).
    I went back to the dealer and they fixed it. They said they had to "tighten" the home button. They also said they did not observe any problem with the charging. I still have to get the device back to confirm this. It took 5 days to fix.
    So I don't think this is a SW problem. And all the tricks I read in this forum like "pressing on the side of the home button" are just temporary remedies. Eventually you will need a mechanical fix. The problem is that the device is sensitive, and many insertions of the power cord cause the internal assembly which includes the home button to dislocate.
    I hoped someone from Apple would post a formal description of the problem and how to fix it.

  • I attempted to update to the latest IOS version.  Then it seemed to "Lock UP".  Now all i get on display is a graphic of the power cord with an arrow pointing to an iTunes icon.  Home button is not responding.

    I attempted to update to latest version of IOS.  Now all I get on the display is a graphic of the power cord with an arrow pointing to an iTunes icon.  Ipad does not seem to power down or power up correctly.  Home button is not responding.

  • I phone 3gs home button is not working properly

    Hi Folks..
    From the last few days my I phone 3GS is giving me a hard time.. Its HOME BUTTON is not working properly. Have to press it 2-3 times and have to press it hard to make it work. I am now running 5.1 iOS, it had the same problem with 5.0.1 iOS too. Can you suggest me what to do??? Do i need to take it to the service centre????

    I've just noticed this too, after updating my 3GS to iOS 5.1.  It seems to be happening off and on, but it is more of a problem when the phone has set locked and idle for a few minutes.
    I usually wake it from sleep with the power button, unlock it, and wait for the ability to use the home button.
    It might be worth it to take it to the Genius Bar or at least try to live chat with Apple Customer Service.
    I feel your pain.

  • Home button does not wake up iPod Touch

    Hey all,
    After the iPod screen turns off automatically after the preset idle time, pressing the "Home" button does not wake the device up from the first press; on some occasions it has to be pressed twice before the "Slide to unlock" screen appears.
    This is intermittent and I can't pin down how to accurately reproduce the issue, but it seems to happen randomly. I have never experienced an issue where the "Home" button didn't work when pressed during normal operation, so I don't think it is a hardware issue with the button itself. Note that I had this issue before updating the device to 3.1.2 as well.
    I have auto-lock set to 3 minutes, with Passcode Lock on.
    The device is the 32GB model MC008C, updated with the latest 3.1.2 (7D11) OS.
    Cheers

    sorry to reply and intrude here but i cannot for the love of god find he new thread button. (maybe a mod will move me please)
    I recently restored my iPod touch and i didn't really watch the restore. I know the loading bar on ipod was nearly at end. Anyways, 10-15mins later i go to use my ipod and clicking the home button nothing displays.
    I then try to turn on, yet nothing. So googling, i left the battery to completely drain if there is any.
    I plug my ipod into my computer and nopthing happens, it does not wake up(turn on) or even charge. I have tried an Iphone wall charger, yet no response from my ipod touch as well.
    So i kept googling and i found out about some DFU mode, there was lots of different combinations on the web, i tried them all, yet my ipod does not respon. No noises, notifications or anything in itunes(if itunes closed, does not open up!)
    It has now been a good few days since it stopped working, and i cannot think is there anymore to do. It is still in warranty for a few months.
    Only problem is, i do not think i;m entitled to phone support, and the nearest genius for me is hours away.
    PS: my iPod touch was restored to version 3.2 (latest version if thats wrong <!-- )
    I have itunes 9.1
    Running windows 7 rc
    I have tried my ipod also on the following:
    My dual boot vista, another computer with vista and a Mac Pro.
    Can anyone suggest anything or help me please?
    Thanks in advance,
    Malcom

  • Home button does not bring me to the home screen

    I bought an iPod Touch 16GB in the beginning of june. It was a gift, and has not been in use until yesterday. The home button is totally unresponsive. Pushing the home button will not give any respons at all. Whenever I launch an app, I'm stuck there, until I shut the device off or reset it.
    We felt this might be a softwareproblem. The software was upgraded to 3.1.2
    The iPod is fully charged. I have done a restart and a reset several times. All of the content on the iPod (music was the only thing put into it, no apps) is removed. I have reset all settings and the software is restored several times using the restore button in iTunes.
    I can do a "hard reset" (holding down the sleep/wake button and the home button at the same time for 10 sec will give me the expected respons). So it seems the home button hardware is working.
    I still believe this is some sort of software error. I have done everything suggested by Apple to sort out the problem, but nada!
    This is a brand new iPod, it has never been used and I obviously will take it to the store and I am sure it will be fixed or replaced.
    BUT: Does anyone have any suggestions, in case there are something I should have tried out first?

    One more thing before you take it back to the store - try a restore. You will do this from within iTunes. Since you really don't have app data to concern yourself with, do a "restore as new". This will wipe it clean and reinstall the firmware. You can then sync to add everything back to it.

  • Iphone 6 home button sensor not working

    I just got the iphone 6 in the mail and I've been having trouble setting up the fingerprint lock and reachability option. My home button sensor doesn't seem to work. I had my thumb over the fingerprint sensor for 5 minutes and it didn't read at all.. the screen remained idle. I tried everything. (I let my thumb sit over the button for minutes without moving, covered the ring, and even tried pressing down out of aggravation). And when I turned on the accessibility option for reachability. I double tapped my home button and nothing happened. Is my phone defected or am I doing something wrong?

    Hi,
    I had the same problem and after many hours of work was confirmed to be a hardware problem (according to the Apple technical support).
    I have sent it back.
    Did you ever resolve your issue?

    I tried updating my iPod, and ever since it has not worked at all. If I hold in the lock & home button, it will tell me to plug it into iTunes. Once I do that, it says it will restore but every time, restoring it fails. My iPod is not working at all, and I really have no idea what to do. It is just a black screen, and occasionally the white apple will appear as if it were turning on, but it won't turn on. I just need some suggestions on what to do!

    - Also try DFU mode after try recovery mode

    - If not successful and you can't fully turn the iPod fully off, let the battery fully drain. After charging for an least an hour try the above again.
    - If still not successful that indicates a hardware problem and an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store is in order.

  • Home button is not working sinds ios 5.1.1 update

    I bought my iPad 2 2 weeks ago and everything was working fine. I dit an update of the software and my home button is not working anymore. Could someone please help me out? Thanx in advance

    Try to recalibrate your home button.
    Step 1) – The very first thing you will need to do is launch a stock iOS app like the Calendar, Stocks, YouTube etc.
    Step 2) – Once the stock iOS app of your choice has been launched you will need to hold the power button (located on the top of your iOS Device) until the Slide To Power Off toggle appears.
    Step 3) – As soon as you see the Slide To Power Off toggle appear you will need to quickly hold the home button until this toggle disappears.
    Step 4) – When it does disappear you will have successfully recalibrated your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad’s home button.
