My ipod touch will not turn on, charge, or isn't recognised by itunes or my computer. I've tried most common fixes. Please help!

Hi. Last week, in this hot weather, my ipod (8gb, 4g) started flickering , screen went white and then it died! Left it off for 24 hrs to cool down and eventually it powered up again. Thing is, I needed to charge it and so put it on a dock but it wouldn't charge. Tried a diff dock, ac charger and apple usb cable to my laptop and nothing. Battery nearly completely drained, just get the flashing battery with lightning symbol when I press the on button. Not recognised by itunes or my computer and all the advice says to charge it and try again but mine doesn't seem to be charging despite being on a charger for several hours! Tried pressing on and home keys together for diff periods of time (up to 5 mins once) but still nothing. Not even getting to the apple logo stage Can someone out there please help me??

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

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

Also
Not Charge
- 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.

  • HT1430 My 4th Gen iPod touch will not turn, doesnt charge, and i can't reset in computer because it says it is protected by a passcode, but i cant enter pass code because the screen stays black and won't even light up... What do I do

    My 4th gen iPod Touch has had a blank screen for about 3-4 weeks now, it will not turn on, sync, or charge. iTunes recognizes its plugged up, but i cant reset it because it says its passcode protected, but i cant enter passcode due to screen not lighting up or working. How do i fix this?

    Place the iOS device in Recovery Mode and then connect to your computer and restore via iTunes. The iPod will be erased.
    iOS: Wrong passcode results in red disabled screen
    If recovery mode does not work try DFU mode.

  • IPod touch will not turn on, charge or do anything.

    Hi everyone,
    Yesterday I bought an iPod touch 4G. When I got home, I plugged my iPod into iTunes and synced it all up. It was working for about two hours but then it started to act weird. I would be in the middle of playing a game and it would freeze and not let me do anything. I tried pressing the home button, the lock button and the volume buttons but it just was not doing anything. I decided to put it down and just let it sit for a while. When I came back to it, it started working again but then a few minutes later it did the same thing. I tried to reset it by pressing the home and lock buttons together but that did not work. I put it away again and when I went back to it, it was fine. This happened about four times. The last time I restored it and it was working fine. This morning, it was doing the same thing so I tried to reset it and then restore it again. Nothing worked. I tried to plug it into the computer but it didn't recognize it. When I plug it into the computer now, the Apple logo appears on the screen but it goes back to black almost immediately; it keeps doing this. I have not dropped it or gotten water on it and, like I said, it was just purchased yesterday. I would appreciate any help anyone can give me on this topic.

    The same happend to me last night, don't if it was a game update.
    Anyway, my iPod would not turn on, connect to windows, etc
    My solution was to put it in recovery mode:
    1. connect the ipod to a computer or charger
    2. press and hold the power button for 10 sec
    3. press home button for 10 seconds, do not release the power button yet
    4. after 10 seconds release the power button, keep pressing the home button
    5. when you hear a sound, release the button and wait.
    6. itunes will tell to restore it, do not do anything.
    7. just wait 10 minutes in order to allow the battery to charge, then press the power button or press it for a few seconds
    8. the iPod will restart, all should be normal, no data loss
    HTH

  • My Ipod touch will not turn on,charge or anything for no aparent reason? Did not drop get ,wet or anything else!

    Is there anything that might possibly be done to try and fix this? I have only had my touch for about 10 months. It was working fine and when I was using it to take photos it said low battery,I hit ignore took a few more pix then put it away.When I got home I plugged into USB to charge and nothing happened??? The screen is just BLACK-no sign of life at all and it has been plugged in all night! Is it dead? Will it ever turn on again? Is there another way to try and get it to work? If anybody could please help me out with this I would really appriciate it.This was a very expensive toy to only have worked less than a year! I have always taken very good care of it,its never been dropped,gotten wet,or manipulated in any way.I have always used a cover and screen protector! But like a dummy I did NOT get the extended warrenty. Is it garbage now? PLEASE HELP IF POSSIBLE thanks so much!!!!!

    Have you tried to Hard reset it (force to boot) by holding the Power button and the Home button both at the same time  for 10 to 20 seconds and once you see the apple logo release them all
    -if does not work repeat the same procedure by pluging it you ipod into a wall-charger and if instead you see the battery logo with with the lit across it this would mean that you need to charge it
    this is a typical problem that  happen when the battery is complety drained out
    -keep in mind if you finally triger the system to make the battery logo appear you good to go !!!

  • IPOD TOUCH WILL NOT TURN ON, charge or sync

    ipod touch 3rd gen won't do anything - just a black screen - already went through all the reset steps still nothing  - liquid indicators are not activated - tried charging plugged into wall and computer - tried the holding the home and power button for over 10 seconds.

    See my response to your posts. Posting three times doe not help.

  • My ipod touch will not turn on, i pluged it up to my computer to charge but it wont charge. and plus its battery was already full. why wont it turn on??

    So one day is was laying next to my ipod touch and i tried to turn it on but it wouldnt. so then i pluged it up to my computer to charge but it didnt charge, the computer didnt pick up the divice. so now my ipod touch will not turn on, and i have no idea why. PLEASE HELP.

    mine did the same thing. What I did was hold the home and power button down for 10 seconds but that did not work. I figured out that I just had to hold them down for a long time like 15 to 45 seconds. Then it finally turned on. You may have to do it a couple of time. But if this does not work send it in to the apple company they fixed mine completly free they even sent me a box to send it in. I hope my answer helps you fix it.

  • Ipod touch will not turn on unless plugged in

    My Ipod touch will not turn on, Ive plugged it in and it comes on it has a charge but as soon as I unplug it it goes black ... I have tried to restart it but there is just a black screen

    Try the following:
    - A reset. Nothing is lost
    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.
    - Restore from backup
    - Restore to factory settings/new iPod.
    If you still have the problem that indicates a hardware problem and an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store is in order

  • Ipod touch will not turn on and is not reading in the usb port

    ipod touch will not turn on or connect to my computer

    I just had a similar problem and tried all of the reboot techniques with no success. I knew it had to be a connection issue inside the iPod, and grasping at straws, I sprayed a little WD-40. I dried it off and let it sit overnight. Today at lunch I plugged it in to my wall charger and it began charging.
    ***FYI I know they don't recommend spraying WD-40 on your iPod, but it was a last resort for me. I was at the point of paying to send it in for repairs or throwing it away. I wouldn't try this unless you are ready to throw yours away too.

  • 2nd Generation iPod touch will not turn on

    My 2nd Generation iPod touch will not turn on.  I have held the lock button down for up to 30 seconds and it remains a black screen.  When I put it on the charger, the screen usually shows the battery amount, but it will not do that either.  I checked the battery about 10 minutes before it began this, and it was about 75% charged.  There is no way it could be dead.  It will not even show the apple, as if it were powering on.

    - Connect the iPod to your computer.  If iTunes sees the iPod restore the iPod.
    - Next see if resetting the iPod will make the iPod visible so you can restore the iPod.
    Reset iPod touch:  Press and hold the On/Off Sleep/Wake button and the Home
    button at the same time for at least ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
    - Next see if recoverymode  will make the iPod visible.  For recovery mode see:
    iPhone and iPod touch: Unable to update or restore

    - 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.
