iPod Touch constantly restarting

Recommended Posts

Hello

Essentially my Ipod Touch has bugged out to the point of being unusable.

If I give it any charge, it keeps restarting while charging, thus giving it more power to keep restarting when its not plugged into anything. The Apple logo keeps coming up, then blackness, repeat.

At this point it restarts to much for itunes to even recognise it.

What can i do?

I have the exact same problem. Are you using some kind of dock? I found that when I use the USB cable that came with it, it doesn't get stuck in the loop.

Lucky you. I have a fix, although it does require restoring which will erase EVERYTHING on your iPod (you better have a current backup!).

Press and hold Home button and Sleep/Wake button (this forces down the iPod).

Continue to hold the buttons.

Release the Sleep/Wake button when the Apple logo appears.

Let go of both buttons when the Recovery Mode screen shows, or "Connect to iTunes"

You iPod should appear as in "Recovery mode" in iTunes.

Thanks. Managed to get back on my ipod. It took some charge.

...but then it turns off trying to sync because the battery runs out and it will just keep taking that minimum charge that will keep it on for a minute.

Seems my battery is screwed up.

Thanks,

This worked great. And helped me get my 3rd Gen iPod Touch with IOS4 working again after it went into permareboot mode.

If you have an Apple Care, they will replace your iPod for free. If not, you are screwed up.
