- Try another USB port.
- Try on another computer
- Inspect the dock connector on the iPod for bent or missing contacts, foreign material, corroded contacts, broken, missing or cracked plastic.

  • My ipad will not respond, and when i try to shut it down it won't what can I do?

    All of a suuden my ipad would not respond to taps, or any manipulation. When I tried to shut it down, the swipe for shut down would not respond. any ideas? what might be problem ? and what can/should I do? Thanks

    First thing to try is a reboot of your device. Press and hold the Home and Sleep buttons simultaneously ignoring the red slider until the Apple logo appears. Let go of the buttons and let the device restart. See if that fixes your problem.
    You won't have to swipe anything on the screen to reboot the iPad. Hopefully this will correct the error.

    - If the error message says the downloaded firmware is corrupt, then delete the download and try again. It is located here:

  • IPod touch 4g will not back-up when syncing with iTunes

    I was wondering why my iPod touch 4g will back-up when syncing in iTunes. I have tried rebooting the iPod and pc, but still no luck. Anyone know how to fix this? Thanks if you can.

    What exactly happens when you try to sync?
    Does iTunes see the iPod?
    Was the iPod previous synced to another iTunes library/computer?
    Have you successfully synced from this iTunes library/computer before?
    If so have you done anything like update iTunes on the computer since it last successfully synced?
    Do the songs play in iTunes?                                            
    Does any media now sync to the iPod?
    Do you have the right boxes checked to sync?

  • My ipod touch 2g will not sync to my itunes after being restored

    I restored my ipod after it started having some problems where the sound would stop and the volume bar would dissapear like it was connected to a dock.
    I reset all contents and settings from my ipod and restored it in recovery mode on my itunes , i had to do  did this several times because itunes would no let me restore and i kept getting all sorts of errors.
    I finally got it to restore my ipod and update to ios 4.2.1 but itunes only recognized my ipod once and now it wont recognize it at all , i tried with different usb cables and on different computers and  none can recognize my ipod. Can anyone help ? Thanks

    See if placing the iPod in recovery mode will make the iPod visible in iTunes so you can restore the iPod. For recovery mode see:

  • Ipod touch camera will not open and bottom is flickering.

    So, this has happened before. A long time ago, last year, my ipod had water damage. So i turned it off, left it in rice for a few days and it worked again. It's been working for about a year up until now again. As far as i know, the ipod has had no water damage what-so-ever since then. But, just to be sure, I immediately turned it off and put it in rice. That didn't solve the problem. So I went online and people said If I updated my ipod software to ios.5 then it would resolve the problem... It didn't. I've turned my ipod off for days and turned it back on to still find the problem. I've even reset my ipod 5 times. I don't know what to do... When I press the camera, it's either all black or the shutter is closed. And almost always at the bottom, the camera/video slider is flickering. Please please please help.
    And, it's never been broken or cracked, and protected when dropped... So I doubt it's a hardware problem

    - Have you tried just restoreing the iPod to factorydefaults/new iPOd?
    - Also see this previous long-running discussion
    Camera shutter issue: Apple Support Communities
    - The problem may be due to the previous liquid intrusion.  Sometimes it can take awhile for some damage to occur.

  • Ipod touch 4g will not update and wont restore before updating

    unable to update my device to 4.3.2 (connection timeout notification) and cannot restore without trying to update.  have tried recovery mode (http://support.apple.com/kb/HT1808) and have tried updating and restoring with ethernet cable plugged into my computer
    PLEASE HELP!!!

    Retry after rebooting your computer, your router, your modem and disable the security software on your computer.

  • I have problems getting apps on my ipod touch, even the free ones and when i try to get it, it says this ID never purchased something before please review...

    so i thought that i had to insert a payment methode even if i just wanted the free apps but then i heard from my friends that they didn't had to do that and they still get their apps...? please help this is really gettig me nerveous ...

    You need a payment method on your Apple ID to use the store. Even if you're not planning to download any paid apps, you still need a method linked to your account.
    I''m not sure when it changed, but I believe you used to be able to download free apps without a payment method. Maybe your friends Apple IDs are from those days.

  • My ipod touch 4g will not turn on.

    My ipod touch 4g will not turn on. when I try to turn it on, I get the itunes logo and the usb cable with an arrow pointing up to the itunes lable. I dont know how to fix it. My computer is equipped with itunes and I tried using my computer to fix this problem but it didnt work.

    Restore.  Note that it could take well over an hour!  Connect via cable to the computer that you use for sync.  From iTunes, select the iPad/iPod and then select the Summary tab.  Follow directions for Restore and be sure to say "yes" to the backup.  You will be warned that all data (apps, music, movies, etc.) will be erased but, as the Restore finishes, you will be asked if you wish the contents of the backup to be copied to the iPad/iPod.  Again, say "yes."
    At the end of the basic Restore, you will be asked if you wish to sync the iPad/iPod.  As before, say "yes."  Note that that sync selection will disappear and the Restore will end if you do not respond within a reasonable time.  If that happens, only the apps that are part of the IOS will appear on your device.  Corrective action is simple -  choose manual "Sync" from the bottom right of iTunes.
    If you're unable to do the Restore, go into Recovery Mode per the instructions here.

    Its been like this for awhile and I can not fix it

    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.
    - Try another cable                                                       
    - Try on another computer                                                       
    - If still not successful that usually indicates a hardware problem and an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store is in order.
