Ok. So my 2nd gen ipod touch is frozen at the Apple logo screen. Ive tried doing the sleep and home button, conecting it the computer and running it dixk mode and restoreing it and nothing works.it wont get unstuck. Is it just plain dead?

Is there a soulution to where i can keep this one?

Try:
- iOS: Not responding or does not turn on
- 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.
It is very likely that you will have to restore the iPod.

    2nd gen iPod touch only displays start-up apple icon, and is not recognized by iTunes - what to do?

    Thanks, but I've checked those articles out already. I drained the battery and finally got the needs charge (battery w/red line + arrow pointing to a charging bolt), I plugged the USB into the laptop and held down the start key +home key until I saw the apple logo. However, it still was not recognized by itunes. It's been plugged in for over an hour now and the screen is cycling apple logo/low battery (battery w/red line)/and black screen.

    If your iPod Touch, iPhone, or iPad is Broken
    Apple does not fix iDevices. Instead, they exchange yours for a refurbished or new replacement depending upon the age of your device and refurbished inventories. On rare occasions when there are no longer refurbished units for your older model, they may replace it with the next newer model.
    ATTN: Beginning July 2013 Apple Stores are now equipped to do screen repairs/replacements in-house on iPhone 5 and 5C. In some cases while you wait. According to Apple this is the beginning of equipping Apple Stores with the resources needed to do most repairs for iPhones, iPads, and iPod Touches that would not require major replacements. Later in the year the services may be extended as Apple Stores become equipped and staffed with the proper repair expertise. So, if you need a screen repaired or a broken screen replaced or have your stuck Home button fixed, call your local Apple Store to see if they are now doing these in-house.
    You may take your device to an Apple retailer for help or you may call Customer Service and arrange to send your device to Apple:
    Apple Store Customer Service at 1-800-676-2775 or visit online Help for more information.
    To contact product and tech support: Contacting Apple for support and service - this includes international calling numbers.
    You will find respective repair costs in the appropriate link:
    iPod Service Support and Costs
    iPhone Service Support and Costs
    iPad Service Support and Costs
    There are third-party firms that do repairs on iDevices, and there are places where you can order parts to DIY if you feel up to the task:
    1. iResq or Google for others.
    2. Buy and replace screen yourself: iFixit

    When I clicked 'check for update' it just says that 2.2.1 is the current version
    It will - until you purchase iOS 3.
    Follow the link that stedman provided, and on that page, instead of choosing the link to iOS4, choose Purchase the iOS 3.1 Software Update directly from the iTunes Store. When you choose it, iTunes will open to the store and page for buying (purchasing) the update. It doesn't cost much (a few dollars although I cannot recall precisely) and it is the only way to update from you current iOS version. Once you do that, a further update to iOS 4.2.1 is free. That particular update may occur straight away, I don't know.
    By the way, iOS 4.2.1 is as high as the 2nd generation Touch can go, but don't let that put you off. I have one and although I cannot install the BBC iPlayer (because it requires iOS 5) there are many Apps that work perfectly well with iOS 4.2.1.
    decy95:
    I've just read the another discussion (to which you contributed), in which Illaass suggests that you may have a 1st generation Touch. If that is so, then your iPod will only be able to update to iOS 3.1.3. This will still need to be purchased, but be aware that many Apps require iOS 4 or higher, so your options would be more limited. So follow the link Illaass provided to confirm which model you have.

  • 2nd gen ipod touch obsolete?

    ever since earlier this year, I have been noticing that more iOS application updates are no longer being written for iOS 4. this wasn't a major concern until a week ago, when I started noticing that the number of updates that were incompatible with my 2nd gen ipod touch had gone from 4 to 13 within 8 days of each other. since there looks to be fewer and fewer apps that will run under iOS 4, I have gotten to wondering about my current iPod. A few months ago, my 2nd gen iPod Touch was diagnosed by the genius bar in SF. the employee who ran the tests told me that my iPod was having some hardware issues, and a replacement would cost me $99. I really didn't see the point in doing anything at the time, but, if I am not going to be able to use the iPod as I have been doing for the past 3.75 years, then it might be time to replace it. I know that apple will discontinue support for iOS 4 completely before too long, and I don't want to be stuck with an ancient ipod. I was stuck with an ancient ibook g4 for 7 years prior to getting my current MacBookPro. any suggestions or feedback would be greatly welcomed! thanks

    "Do we simply toss them out?"
    No.
    "I think that this is a little ridiculous"
    Since you don't just "throw them out", there is no "ridiculousness".
    "I paid for a product that I can no longer use simply because it is older."
    Baloney.  You can use the product, until it's no longer operational.  If it breaks, you can have it repaired outside of the warranty.

  • 2nd gen iPod touch - Factory restore not working

    I'm trying to factory restore my 2nd gen ipod touch.  I figured I could simply choose the factory reset in the setting and it would do it's thing.  Now it says it needs to connect to iTunes in order to complete the process.  However, when I plug my phone into my (windows) PC, iTunes doesn't recognize it.  It makes the normal sounds and starts charging, so I know the PC recognizes that it's connected, but iTunes will not.  now, I can't do anything on the ipod - it just sits there like a brick,   help!

    Tap Settings > WiFi > your network name (or at least the one with the check mark). Tap the little blue > next to the name. Look at Device IP - if it starts with 169.x then your router has not issued you an IP address
    You also should have "Renew Lease" and "Forget this Network" buttons. Try pressing Renew Lease to see if you then get a valid response from your router.
    If this doesn't work you can try these things:
    1. Reboot your router (just unplug the power cord for a minute, then plug back in). If this doesn't fix it, try disabling security to rule that out.
    2. Reset the touch network settings - tap Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings
    3. When the touch restarts, tap Settings > WiFi > other and re-enter your network name, security, and network password.
    There is more troubleshooting info [in this support article|http://support.apple.com/kb/TS1398].
    Hope this helps.

  • HT204266 is there a way to get older versions of apps? I have a 2nd gen ipod touch with ios 4.2.1

    is there a way to get older versions of apps - for a 2nd gen ipod touch with ios 4.2.1

    The only way is to jailbreak and download cracked apps, but I would recommend you wouldn't do that as this is piracy and jailbreaking is illegal in some countries.

  • 2nd Gen iPod Touch stuck in restore mode

    My Friend recently gave me his 2nd gen ipod touch that he no longer uses as a gift, i decided to restore it so i could put my music on it and remove all the apps that were on there because i wanted more space for music, while restoring i came across a problem, an error message popped up and said, "The iPod "iPod" cannot be restored, an unknown error occured (2003)." i have the latest version of itunes installed and ive tried everything mentioned in the following article http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=307219, this ipod was fully functiong before i attempted to restore it and now its stuck in restore mode and will not work at all, i do not feel like paying to talk to an apple representitive to help me with a problem that shouldn't be happening in the first place so if someone could help me here that would be greatly appreciated.

    Well i had kinda the same problem. I pressed the wake/sleep button and the home button for 10 seconds. Then it shuts down. You connect it to iTunes and says this iPod was in restore mode, and continues or starts again. Hope can help!

    Nothing.  The 2nd Gen Touch is OBSOLETE and is WAY past its support life.  If you want to run the newer apps you have to buy a newer iPod.
