Passworded iPod Touch 2nd Generation, How do I get rid of password.
My son put a PASSWORD on iPod Touch 2nd Generation 16G
Can't take it off.
PC & Itunes won't recognize it.
Can't update it or reset it.
iPod won't start up, only displays Apple Logo.
Appreciate any help.
To restore a password-protected iPod Touch:
1. Plug iPod into computer.
2. Hold down the power (top) button for about 5 seconds until you see the "slide to power off button"
3. Slide the red button.
4. Immediately hold down both power (top) and home buttons until you see the apple logo.
5. When you see the apple logo, release the power (top) button, but continue to hold down the menu button until you see a picture of a USB cable with an arrow and iTunes on your iPod.
6. Then restore your iPod with iTunes (remember this WILL erase everything off of the iPod, but hopefully your music is backed up on your computer/iTunes
Hopefully this helps!
Restoring is supposed to erase all the contents stored on the iPod Touch, including the password. If that fails, try taking it to your nearest Apple Store and have them try. I suspect that you may have some sort of hardware issue. Try restoring again, and if it still doesn't clear the password, use my suggestion. Otherwise get a new iPod Touch. Good luck!!
