What I would like you to try now is to try and reset your iPod Touch

MacTechTrainer :

all you are doing is simply performing a hard reset

JACUSTOMER-c745bu5i- :

in the settings menu as well?

press and hold down the Sleep and Home menu buttons

MacTechTrainer :

for approximately 10 seconds

of your iPod Touch

JACUSTOMER-c745bu5i- :

I dont know it was like that from the begining

MacTechTrainer :

So it has always been in this undesired color format?

JACUSTOMER-c745bu5i- :

YES

MacTechTrainer :

JACUSTOMER-c745bu5i- :

???!!!

MacTechTrainer :

Ok, let's give the Settings >General and now select "Reset All Settings"

don't worry - I am not out of answers

MacTechTrainer :

I am probing for causal factors which may have contributed to this color issue

JACUSTOMER-c745bu5i- :

Ok I already reset all settings its now loading

JACUSTOMER-c745bu5i- :

Its back on it says location services and do I proceed from there

JACUSTOMER-c745bu5i- :

??

MacTechTrainer :

location services

MacTechTrainer :

yes

MacTechTrainer :

is a function that allows your iPod to be identified geographically for some apps that require location services

MacTechTrainer :

like Fandango for example

JACUSTOMER-c745bu5i- :

Right

MacTechTrainer :

when you use that App to locate movie theatres in your area

MacTechTrainer :

etc..
