iPod Touch 5th Gen won't boot passed the APPLE screen

The battery on my 5th Gen Touch went bad. I replaced it and it seems to be charging and working, but it won't boot passed the Apple screen. Comes for about 90 seconds and then shuts off. Also try to connect it to iTunes to do a restore and iTunes doesn't see it.

Thanks for any help you can give me.

It sounds like you're stuck in a boot loop. One way to TEMPORARILY get out of this is to hold down the "+" volume button on your iPod as soon as you see the apple logo appear. Keep holding the volume button! it will take longer than you would think! If this works, then plug it into you computer and restore it.

Hi Mr. Russel,

My Ipod touch 5th gen Ios 9.2 doesn't seem to be responding to this fix. Are their more options? I found no lint or dust either .

Thanks in advance,

Frank

dont know if you still need help but to force restart it you hold down the home button and power button until the apple icon appears. if that doesnt work you can put it into device recovery mode by holding down for even longer while it is plugged in to a computer with itunes open. you can then use the computer to update it or restore it (which deletes everything)
