IPod touch aps open and close on their own and iTunes player starts up

I have done four complete wipes and re-installs and aps are continuing to open and close at random even if iPod touch isn't being used. Random tracks begin playing while screen is locked and aps open and close randomly throughout. I've completely wiped and reloaded numerous times to no avail. Apple insists its a software issue, but it occurs with most updated versions and even if I have loaded nothing but the preinstalled aps to the iPod. The song tracks playing at random are never the same, and there's no consistency as to what ap is open when this happens.

Send it to Apple or a third-party place.

  • My ipad 4 dropped and now apps open and close on their own

    My ipad 4 dropped off my lap.  The glass is intact but now all the apps open and close randomly on their own.  I tried to reboot it and it didnt workd.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.  Thanks

    THANKS for your prompt reply  Bluetooth is off in my laptop and IPhone.. and in fact the reset is the only thing that can make it back to normal. But for a lil while. I wonder if it is the touch, or the home botton... both things are very expensive to replace, so I wouldn't like to spend $$ and continue having the prob.....

  • How do you make programs open and close into their own tab in the dock, like they do in windows?

    You know in Windows, how there is a tab for each program in the taskbar?  And, if the program is minimized, when you click the tab, the programs restores.  And when you click the tab again, the program minimizes.
    Can this be done on Mac?
    Thanks!

    Here's my ungrateful response...
    I should have posted screen shots in the first place!
    Here is what I'm talking about.  In the first screen shot (in Windows), you can see that there are programs running in the taskbar, but all the windows are minimized.  The mouse is hovering over the "Computer" tab in the tasbar at the bottom of the screen.  I am about to click the left mouse button once to restore the "Computer" window onto the desktop, but I haven't clicked it yet...
    In this next screen shot, you can see that I have just clicked the left mouse button once and the "Computer" window has been restored (is now showing on the screen)...
    Then, WITHOUT MOVING THE MOUSE TO ANY BUTTON IN THE "COMPUTER" WINDOW, ETC, IE. THE MOUSE IS STILL IN THE SAME PLACE IT WAS WHEN I CLICKED THE LEFT MOUSE BUTTON ONCE TO RESTORE THE WINDOW, I click the mouse button again and the window minimizes!...
    All I'm asking is if anyone knows of a way to mimic this behaviour in OSX (in the dock) - either within the operating system itself, or with an addon app, etc.
    Right now, as you know, in OSX when you click the program in the dock, the program restores, but then you have to move the mouse and click on the yellow button at the top-left of the program window to minimize it again.  This is because once you click the program window icon in the dock to restore the program window, the icon is then removed from the dock - thus disallowing the possibility of clicking it again, without moving the mouse, to minimize the program window.  I'm trying to see if there is a way so you don't have to move the mouse to toggle the window from minimized to restored to minimized again.
    Or to be even more clear...
    This next screen shot shows the desktop in OSX (mine happens to be Lion 10.7.5) and we can see that the Firefox program window is minimized into the dock into a Firefox program window icon.  I have not yet clicked the mouse button to restore the Firefox program, but I am about to.  The red circle at the bottom left of the screen shows where the mouse is...
    Here, in this next screen shot, is the screen once I have clicked the mouse button on the Firefox dock window icon and the Firefox program window has been restored...
    As you can see, the Firefox dock window icon that I just clicked has disappeared and, in that place instead, the red circle is now over a different dock window icon.  The Firefox dock window icon is now missing from the dock and is therefore unclickable.  If the Firefox dock window icon was still there, I could just click on it again to minimize the Firefox program window, and subsequently click it again to restore, and so on - like I am able to do in Windows.
    I hope this clears things up.

  • Since upgrading my iphone 4 to IOS6, apps keep opening and closing on their own

    Since upgrading my iphone 4 to IOS6, apps keep opening and closing on their own and the wrong ones open when another is pressed. I've tried a full reset but still the same thing...HELP PLEASE :-(

    I'm not familiar with the Belkin cover, but you could try removing the cover and reboot the iPad and see how that goes.
    Reboot the iPad by holding down on the sleep and home buttons at the same time for about 10-15 seconds until the Apple Logo appears - ignore the red slider if it appears on the screen - let go of the buttons. Let the iPad start up.

  • I have model A1458...been acting possessed.... apps opening and closing on their own...zooming in and out... not always responsive to my touch... what could be the problem?

    i have model A1458...been acting possessed.... apps opening and closing on their own...zooming in and out... not always responsive to my touch... what could be the problem?

    The two most likely culprits would be a faulty cable/charging block or a bad digitizer. Try charging the device with a different charger and cable. If the problem goes away, then the problem is with your charger. If it does not, try the basics of resetting, restoriing from back up, restoring as new. If you still have the problem, make an appointment at the Genius Bar at your local Apple Store for evaluation.

  • I just purchased 2 ipod touch for my kidz.  and registered them both with my email.  I didn't know every text message I receive, they too would get on their IPod Touch.  HOw do I change this? And do I need to contact a Representative to add them

    i just purchased 2 ipod touch for my kidz (9 & 10 yr. old) .  and registered them both with my email.  I didn't know every text message I receive, they too would get on their IPod Touch.  HOw do I change this? And do I need to contact a Representative to add their own emails....?

    Can you connect to a wifi source on the device? Enable wifi in settings on the device itself. If you don't have wifi at home, there may be a local hotspot you can use for this.
    The reason this happens is carriers don't want people downloading huge files that would slow their network as well as eat up your data plan.

  • Can i upgrade the OS on my iPod Touch 1st generation so i can use wifi and apps?

    i recenlty cracked the screen on my iPod and my son gave me an older one of his, which i think is a 1st Gen.  there is no access to the internet capabilities and therefore no apps.  would downloading the more recent firmware allow me to use the iPod the way I'm used to? i miss mail, facebook and texting capabilities of my other device.

    Here it is

    The page has a link that directs you to a page you have to open iTunes. The iTunes link then directs you to download the update directly into your iT account and from there you plug in your ipt and wait while it does the update.
    Hope this helps.
    If, for some reason the link doesn't show up, I found it by Googling "ipod 3.1.3" and clicked on a link called "
    OS 3.0 for 1st gen iPod Touch - 23 Feb 2011" then followed their advice...

  • Our second generation iPod touches stopped opening BBC iPlayer programmes 23 Feb. anyone know why?

    Our two second generation iPod touches have developed an identical problem with BBC iPlayer, We can open iPlayer, we can choose a programme but when we try to open the programe the circular icon at the top opens and closes within a second and the programme does not open. I have tried using the drop down menu  OPEN but that does not work either.
    The iPlayer App is not applicable to this generation of iPod Touch...
    I can access the iPlayer programmes no problem on a PC so it isn't an internet problem.
    A younger fourth generation iPod touch can open programmes so it isn't a an iPod touch problem in general.
    Any ideas?

    Error 1604
    This error is often related to USB timing. Try changing USB ports, using a different dock connector to USB cable, and other available USB troubleshooting steps (troubleshooting USB connections. If you are using a dock, bypass it and connect directly to the white Apple USB dock connector cable. If the issue persists on a known-good computer, the device may need service.
    If the issue is not resolved by USB isolation troubleshooting, and another computer is not available, try these steps to resolve the issue:
    Connect the device to iTunes, confirm that the device is in Recovery Mode. If it's not in Recovery Mode,put it into Recovery Mode.
    Restore and wait for the error.
    When prompted, click OK.
    Close and reopen iTunes while the device remains connected.
    The device should now be recognized in Recovery Mode again.
    Try to restore again.
    If the steps above do not resolve the issue, try restoring using a known-good USB cable, computer, and network connection.
