IPod Touch Repair
IPod Touch repair is not as difficult as you may think. It is not uncommon to run into problems with your device and fixing those problems yourself can save you a lot of money and unnecessary headaches. Listed below are a few common problems that can occur with your iPod Touch and tips on how you can rectify them.
Things you'll need:
- Vacuum cleaner
- Computer with USB ports
- Water damage. If your iPod Touch accidentally ended up in the toilet or in a pool, keep it off to avoid a short. Remove all the attachments (i.e. earphones) to the iPod, then use a vacuum cleaner to remove as much of the water from the device as you can. Afterward, leave the iPod in a well-ventilated area for three days. Run a fan in front of it to dry it even further.
- iPod Touch won't turn on. An iPod not turning on is a very common issue. Make sure your device is fully powered and plug it into your computer via USB connector to check whether its status changes. If nothing happens, reset the iPod Touch by pressing and holding the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons at the same time for at least ten seconds.
- Blank screen. When the dreaded blank screen occurs on your iPod Touch, the device will not respond, no matter what you do. You will have to reset it. To do this, press and hold the Home and Power buttons simultaneously for between ten and fifteen seconds.
- Forgot lock screen password. If by some chance you suddenly forget your lock password for your iPod Touch, you can easily fix the problem. Connect the device to your computer via USB connector and open iTunes. Next, select your device at the left, click the "Summary" tab and click "Restore." You will then be required to follow the instructions so that you can restore your password.
