you must have misunderstood me because whenever I attempt to take the pictures they still come out black and white and in sepia format

MacTechTrainer :

Ah

MacTechTrainer :

I see

MacTechTrainer :

no worries

MacTechTrainer :

I understand-

Customer :

Ok

MacTechTrainer :

so tell me when you see the pictures in black and white and the sepia format, are you referring to when you print out the pics or view them on your

MacTechTrainer :

desktop?

Customer :

when I view them on the ipod

MacTechTrainer :

Also are you using a Mac or a PC when syncing your iPod Touch?

MacTechTrainer :

Ok

Customer :

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

MacTechTrainer :

for approximately 10 seconds

MacTechTrainer :

until the screen goes completely black'

MacTechTrainer :

this is for better choice of words, a reboot

MacTechTrainer :

of your iPod Touch

MacTechTrainer :

this will enable your iPod Touch to reset

Customer :

so now its off

MacTechTrainer :

release the keys once the screen goes black

Customer :

..... turned back on?

MacTechTrainer :

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

MacTechTrainer :

MacTechTrainer :

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

Customer :

Ok I already reset all settings its now loading

Customer :

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

Customer :

??

MacTechTrainer :

location services

MacTechTrainer :
