After your iPod Touch battery has completely drained, try putting it in DFU mode and doing a complete system restore (which is different than simply restoring the factory settings).

1. Hold down POWER button and the HOME button for 10 seconds.

2. Keep holding down the HOME button, but let go of the POWER button.

3. After a few seconds of holding down the HOME button, plug the USB cable into the computer (one end should already be plugged in to either the computer or iPod, before you do this).

4. The iPod should appear in iTunes with a message saying that the

iPod is in Recovery mode. Click the 'Restore' button on the Summary tab of the iPod settings. Then, follow the onscreen instructions.

Thank You for your assistance. The process, however, did not fix the issue. It still cycles off and on just like it did before I implemented these steps. Are there any other suggestions?

Thanks,

Steve

I just sorted this problem with my iPod Touch 8Gb 1st Gen. It was the ON/OFF switch that had become faulty and was causing the Apple Logo to flash on & off every few seconds. When the Switch was changed it was as good as new. Smithtick
