Well shoot 😕


#1

So anyways the iPod Touch at my house is stuck at a black screen and the home button is broken so I can't hard reset :confused: Anyways does anyone have any ideas? Thanks!
(PS I use that iPod for going on the forum)


Probably will be on less
#2

Can u take the battery out and place it back in?


#3

Well I could try


#4

You could try calling Apple Support or take it to a Apple Store to see if they can fix it.


#5

Have you tried holding down the power button for 7 seconds?


#6

Yes, I don't think anything happened but I'll try again


#7

Try charging it?

Idk

Or do the soft reset thing where you hold the power button down


#8

It's been charging for I think 40-ish minutes, and I tested the charger (it works)


#9

How are you accessing the forum right now? Computer? I had something like that happen to me and I did a hard reset


#10

What type of iPod touch is it


#11

How old is the iPod touch then. Because if it was like first gen or whatever it would probably have that problem.


#12

Found something

I researched it and these are the two most helpful answers so far:

Let it sit for a couple of days u til it drains all its battery

Connect it to a computer so it can like backup and u may be able to restart it from the computer


#14

It's 5th gen


#15

The first one I did with a laptop and it did nothing. Also I don't know how to take the iPod apart.
The second one I may try


#16

Did you try throwing it across the room?
that's how I got my old iPod to work once but I wouldn't really recommend it :joy:
Try holding the home button down for 7 seconds?
I have no idea what to do sorry, the only advice I have is take it in to an Apple Store or something


#17

Yes I want to break a relatively recent iPod (it's 5th gen)


#18

I chucked a nerf gun that was jammed off a tall scructure and it was fixed.
GETTING BACK ON TOPIC
