Hello and welcome to JustAnswer. I look forward to assisting you today with your question and providing the best answer possible.

You can reset your iPod and see if that works or not. Press and hold the Power button and the Home button at the same time for at least ten seconds. iPod will automatically restarts and return to home screen. If it not restarts after holding the button for 10 seconds, hold down the Power button and the Home button until it get turns off and restart itself.

If that didn't worked, then connect it to your PC and then reset it.



Let me know if that didn't worked...Only click Accept after we solved the problem

yes it is added thank you i sure hope we get the little guy back in operation
Expert:  Ashik replied 4 years ago.
I hope too. If it still not working, then put your iPod to DFU (Device Firmware Upgrade or Service Mode) Mode and restore it from iTunes on your computer. Follow the steps below to put your iPod to DFU Mode;
  • Connect the iPod to your computer with the USB Cable.
  • Open iTunes application on your computer
  • On your iPod Press and hold the Home button and the Sleep/Wake button at the same time.
  • After exactly 8 seconds release the Sleep/Wake button. Continue holding the home button until your iTunes shows a message telling you that it has detected an iPod in recovery mode.
  • Click OK or Restore





Note : Put it to DFU Mode while connected to computer and also in DFU Mode your iPod will remain blank.

Expert:  Ashik replied 4 years ago.

Expert:  Ashik replied 4 years ago.
Sorry...but it seems like a hardware problem and you will have to take to the Apple Store. We've already tried all troubleshooting steps so far. I'm sorry I couldn't solve you problem, but this is something we can't fix online.

We are not Apple. This is JustAnswer, a paid support site. Since your iPod is under warranty take it to the Apple store and they will replace it for free.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
ashik sorry for being a bit harsh but thank you very much but just a small qustion since i found out my pod was purchast from amazon willthis be honored for exchange also thank you for your time i think you might be on overtime but do i still have to pay for a problem that was notresolved
Expert:  Ashik replied 4 years ago.
Sorry for the delay...Yes, you can replace it from Apple Store even if it is purchased from Amazon. Since I couldn't solve your problem, you don't have to pay

Best Regards,
Ashik
