  • My iPod touch is frozen/not "touching" is there ANY way to fix this at home

    I have a 2nd Gen 16G iPod touch not purchased at an apple store. I have had it literally a month, and I was walking home from work the other day turned it on, and went to "slide to unlock". . . And it wouldn't work. If I double click home I can kind of work the music, but only the volume and forward. Slide to power off, slide to unlock and any other touch function is unavailable. I plan to go to an Apple store tuesday but seeing as I have not dropped, scrathed or damaged my ipod in anyway I am confused as to how to explain that it just happened... I am a student and would prefer to not spend any more money. I have restored and reset it. ANY SUGGESTIONS??!!!

    You do have a warranty on you iPod for 1 year. So you would not have to pay for it. Umm let me think... did you try holding down the sleep and home button. Or going on to your computer and restoring the original settings. Do you have a lot of apps on there. I don't no if that would slow it down or make it not work but I am just trying to help. I would take it into an apple expert. Good Luck!

  • HT201272 I just purchased an album and only 5 songs fully play out of 15 songs. Is there any way of fixing this problem without having to repurchase this album?

    I just purchased an album and I cannot get all the songs to play. I was wondering if there was some sort of simple fix or do I have to repurchase this album?

    Could be a corrupt download of those particular songs...
    If you live in a Region that allows re-downloading Music...
    Delete the Song(s) and re-download...

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

    Is it the Home button that doesn't work, or the Power (Sleep/Wake) button? If the Power button works, you can switch it off. Not sure how you have been able to do anything without the Home button working?

  • I have a question when I try to authorize my daughters ipod to itunes on a new computer it pulls up a email addresse I do not know and will not transfer her music is there any way to fix this Thanks in advance

    When trying to authorize my daughtes ipod classic to a new laptop it pops up and asks for apple id but  the email is not one of ours and  it will not let me change it is there any way to fix this problem Thanks in advance

    To whom does the email address belong to? Are you sure it wasn't an email address used in the past or perhaps one that had belonged to a friend of hers?
    Either way, if the music on her iPod was purchased under an account not belonging to her or you, there is much you can do. Sorry.

  • I am trying to update an ipod version 2.2 with itunes but I keep getting an error (-1).  Is this an hardware issue according to Apple and if so is there any way to fix this.?

    I am trying to update an ipod version 2.2 with itunes but I keep getting an error (-1).  Is this an hardware issue according to Apple and if so is there any way to fix this.?

    Error 1 or -1
    This may indicate a hardware issue with your device. Follow Troubleshooting security software issues, and restore your device on a different known-good computer. If the errors persist on another computer, the device may need service.
    If you disabled yuor computer's security software then that indicates a hardware problem,
    I would say it is not workth fixint your old. likely a 1G. iPOd.

    Plugins usually are installed externally to Firefox. However, you can disable them in Firefox so that Firefox does not use them.
    SearchReset is supposed to automate the task of resetting certain preferences, but you still can edit them manually if necessary.
    '''''Address Bar Search'''''
    (1) In a new tab, type or paste '''about:config''' in the address bar and press Enter. Click the button promising to be careful.
    (2) In the filter box, type or paste '''keyword''' and pause while the list is filtered
    (3) Right-click '''keyword.URL''' and choose Reset. This should restore Google as the default for address bar search.
    Does that work?
    '''''Search Box'''''
    Usually it works to choose your preferred search engine from the drop-down. To remove an unwanted search engine plugin, usually the Manage Search Engines... choice at the bottom of the drop-down takes care of it.
    Do either of those work?
    There might be another way to hijack that search box; I think some of the other frequent responders probably are more familiar with it than I am.

  • I have an iphone and my daughter has an ipod.  She has all my contacts showing up on her ipod.  I deleted them and now they are gone from both.  is there any way of retreiving this deleted information.

    I have an iphone and my daughter has an ipod.  She has all my contacts showing up on her ipod.  I deleted them and now they are gone from both.  is there any way of retreiving this deleted information.

    When you share an iCloud account, any data you sync with the account is merged, and any actions you take on one device (such as deleteing contacts) is synced to all other devices sharing the account.  To avoid this, each person's device(s) should have a separate iCloud account with a separate ID.  (You can continue to share your iTunes account; it does not need to have the same ID as the one used for iCloud.)
    To create separate icloud accounts, decide which iPhone will be keeping the current iCloud account.  On the one that will be changing accounts, go to Settings>iCloud, scroll to the bottom and tap Delete Account.  (This will only delete the account from this phone, not from iCloud.  The phone that will be keeping the account will not be effected by this.)  When prompted about what to do with the iCloud data, be sure to select Keep On My iPhone.  Next, set up a new iCloud account using a different Apple ID (if you don't have one, tap Get a Free Apple ID at the bottom).  Then turn iCloud data syncing for contacts, etc. back to On, and when prompted about merging with iCloud, choose Merge.  This will upload the data to the new account.
    Finally, to un-merge the data you will then have to go to icloud.com on your computer and sign into each iCloud account separately and manually delete the data you don't want (such as deleting the other person's contacts from your account, and vice versa).
    As for recovering the deleted contacts, you can try restoring her phone from her most recent backup.  This may recover the contacts, however it often doesn't.  Restoring to an iCloud backup has to be done in the initial setup process.  If she have any data on your phone now that is not in the backup that she wants to save she will need to do that first.  Then go to Settings>General>Reset and tap Erase All Content and Settings.  You will then go through the setup screens as you did when the phone was new. When given the option, choose Restore from iCloud Backup.  Be sure you are connected to wifi and your charger as this will take some time to finish.

  • When my Gen 6 nano fades to black the unit shuts off completely and the music stops. is there any way to fix this?

    When my Gen 6 nano fades to black the unit shuts off completely and the music stops. Is there any way to fix this?

    Make sure the headphones are plugged ALL the way in, meaning the white part of the headset is flush with the body of the Nano and no silver from the headphone's plug can still be seen.

  • Apple is asking me to answer my security questions but I can't remember the answers. Also I would reset them but my rescue email is no longer in use and I cannot even remember what it was. Is there any way to fix this mess?

    So basically I need to confirm my identity but I  can't because I can't remember the answers to my security questions. I scheduled a meeting with Apple, to see if they can fix it. Nod I would just reset them from my rescue email, but I don't know what that email is and it's also no longer in use.
    Do you know of any way to fix this?

    You won't be able to change your rescue email address until you can answer your questions, you will need to contact iTunes Support / Apple in your country to get the questions reset.
    Contacting Apple about account security : http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5699
    When they've been reset you can then use the steps half-way down this page to update your rescue email address for potential future use : http://support.apple.com/kb/HT5312
