Reset iPod Touch – A How To Guide

May 5th, 2010

Frozen iPod Touch? Does your iPod Touch not turn on or not sync to your computer? There are a few ways to perform a soft reset on the iPod Touch to get it up and running again.

How To Reset an iPod Touch

1.) Method 1 – Hold the hold button at the top of the iPod until the slide to power off screen appears. Slide your finger to power off the iPod. Then, hold the hold switch until the iPod turns back on and the Apple logo appears on the screen.

2.) Method 2 – Hold the Menu and Hold buttons at the same time until the iPod restarts and the Apple logo appears.

3.) Method 3 – If your iPod boots, go into the system preferences and then General –> Reset. There you will find several settings to reset the iPod Touch.

If your iPod Touch still will not sync to a computer, try these additional steps.

1.) Try another USB port on your computer.
2.) Restart your computer.
3.) If you don’t already have it, download the latest version of iTunes.

If you continue to have issues with your iPod, we offer free diagnosis for iPods with our Send-In Mac Service. iPod repair is $30 labor + part cost. We offer free shipping and will even ship you a box.

We also have iPod parts and free iPod Repair Guides if you’re looking to perform self repair on your iPod Touch.

    You should be able to erase and restore from iTunes. If you can not, then you will not be able to do anything else you have the computer the device was originally synced to.

    I have a ipod touch. It got disabled simply because i have forgotten my password. I do not have the computer it was originally synced too. So when i connect it to itunes it would not do anything because its password protected. I have tried to hold down home & Power buttons. Still don’t reset. I have tried everything. Can you help me out? Do you know how i can reset my ipod so i can use it again? Once again i do not have the original computer it was synced to. I do not know what to do. Im stuck with a disabled ipod. Waste of money. I have tried every video on youtube.

    @ Jocris – I’d first try to restore, and if that doesn’t fix the issue then you’ll likely need to replace your logic board.
