My iPod touch is frozen with the apple logo, it will not open tho, what can I do to fix it?

How to reset and make this work again?

First, try a system reset.  It cures many ills and it's quick, easy and harmless...
Hold down the on/off switch and the Home button simultaneously until the screen blacks out or you see the Apple logo.  Ignore the "Slide to power off" text if it appears.  You will not lose any apps, data, music, movies, settings, etc.
If the Reset doesn't work, try a Restore.  Note that it's nowhere near as quick as a Reset.  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."
Finally, if the Restore doesn't work, let the battery drain completely.  Then recharge for at least an hour and Restore again.

    What happens when you try to connect it to your iTunes library in Recovery Mode?  See this article for steps on how to put your iPod Touch into recovery mode.  Don't be afraid to try this more than once.

  • When I click on I Tunes store from my library nothing happens. No matter what I do the I tunes store will not open. What can I do?

    I just downloaded the new version of I tunes and I went to the I tunes store. It opened just fine and I was browsing the store. I saw a song I wanted to purchase but I decided to return to my library to make sure that I didn't already have that song. When I clicked on I tunes store to return to the store nothing happened. The store would not open. Now no matter what I do the I tunes store will not open. I don't know what to do about this problem. Please help. This is very frustrating.

    Launch the Console application in any of the following ways:
    ☞ Enter the first few letters of its name into a Spotlight search. Select it in the results (it should be at the top.)
    ☞ In the Finder, select Go ▹ Utilities from the menu bar, or press the key combination shift-command-U. The application is in the folder that opens.
    ☞ Open LaunchPad. Click Utilities, then Console in the icon grid.
    Select
    /var/log ▹ install.log
    from the hierarchical list on the left. If you don't see that list, select
    View ▹ Show Log List
    from the menu bar. Then select the messages from the last installation or update attempt, starting from the time when you initiated it. If you're not sure when that was, start over and note the time. Copy them to the Clipboard by pressing the key combination command-C. Paste into a reply to this message (command-V).
    If there are runs of repeated messages, post only one example of each. Don’t post many repetitions of the same message.
    When posting a log extract, be selective. Don't post more than is requested.
    Please do not indiscriminately dump thousands of lines from the log into this discussion.

  • My iPod Touch is frozen on the apple logo.

         I received my iPod Touch as a gift for valentines day over a year ago. Over 3 months ago, I tried to reset my iPod and as usual, the apple logo appeared, but this time it didn't go away.
         I went through the resetting process multiple times (holding the sleep and home button at the same time) but the screen would go black, then show the logo again. I let the battery run out and after I plugged it in to charge, the same thing happened. Basically, my iPod has been resetting itself for over 3 months. During this time, I did not have access to my computer. That was being restored. When I did get my PC back, i figured i could plug up my iPod and have it restored. BUT my comp didn't recognize my iPod as a device. I re-downloaded iTunes, plugged my iPod back up and iTunes didn't even recognize it.
         I'm also having a problem with iTunes itself. Most of my songs are missing. The names are visible, but once I try to play them, the dialogue box appears saying, "this song can not be played because the original file could not be found" and it show a exclamation point to the left of each missing song. I WOULD transfer the songs from my iPod to iTunes, but once again, my iPod is "broken". I have recently read different articles on the Apple website, but once i spotted my issue, it told me that it had to be sent in to be repaired. I also called AppleCare but i was put on hold for too long and I just gave up. I Googled my issue, and found that many other people also have this problem. Answers were posted, and I tried them all but to no avail.

  • IPod Touch is frozen on the apple logo.

    I have tried holding the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons for 10 seconds. And everytime I turn it on, it comes to the apple logo and freezes there. I have put it in DFU mode (as another forum suggested) and then unplugging it and holding the buttons again, but that did nothing. Please help?

    I've been having the same problem, as have others. You will have to connect it to your computer and restore it. Here are two threads on the subject that should be helpful:

    screen is blank with apple logo after downloading new ios 7. Any suggestions?

    Hi, ronia90.
    Thank you for visiting Apple Support Communities.
    I would first try a reset of the device.  To reset a device,  press and hold both the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.  You may need to attempt this multiple times.
    iOS: Turning off and on (restarting) and resetting

    If the issue persists, you may need to attempt a restore on the device via forced recovery.
    iOS: Unable to update or restore

    It is very likely that you will have to restore the iPod.

    I went to pick it up and try to turn it on, and it wouldnt work.  I called and they told me to press power and home buttons and hold.  It worked, now it is stuck on the home screen.
