I have a Gen 4 iPod brand new got in April. Opened a tutorial

This answer was rated:

I have a Gen 4 iPod brand new got in April. Opened a tutorial from a game site & it took over my iPod. Couldn't close it b/c I didn't have all the options it was supposed to have loaded. My iPod is now completely blacked out. Won't light up unless I briefly hook charge cable to it. I'm presently trying to let battery die hoping this will allow me to reset it. NONE of the buttons work. Not even the top button to power off the iPod. Is there anything I can do that I don't know about? I am very frustrated and angry about what's happened. Desperate for help!

Customer:

jstinehelfer :

Ok give me a few minutes to research this.. While I am looking this up have you tried holding the home button down and the sleep/wake button together at the same time until you see an apple come up?

Customer:

is the home button the bottom center button used most often?

jstinehelfer :

yes.

Customer:

jstinehelfer :

Customer:
