iPod turns on but only shows apple logo...
well i have the 3.1.1 software on my first gen. iPod touch and one night i restarted the iPod by pressing the on/off button along with the home button and it turned right back on and only showing the apple logo for about 15 to 20 seconds and turns off after that and now it does the same thing every time i try to turn it on...
can somebody help me or give me a clue on what's wrong with it!
but the thing is that when i turn it on the apple logo appears, but after 10 or 15 seconds it been on it turns off and the same thing happens when i plug it to charge or to the computer and it never goes to the red slider
The thing now is that i dont have wifi so wats the problem with it now/
Try a soft reset first:
1. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button on the top of the unit until a red slider appears
2. Drag the slider.
3. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the Apple logo appears.
If a soft reset doesn’t work, try a hard reset:
Press and hold both the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button for about ten seconds, until the Apple logo appears.
Move closer to the Wi-Fi router or hotspot.
If you are using a personal Wi-Fi network, verify the Wi-Fi router is connected to power and turned on.
Wi-Fi networks configured as "closed" or "private" do not broadcast the network name to Wi-Fi devices.
Join a "closed" or "private" network by tapping Settings > Wi-Fi > Other and entering the Wi-Fi network name, security, and password.
Then tell me if that fixes it.
You might have to put it into DFU mode
it will restore it, but it should fix the problem
To put the iPhone into DFU mode so you can do an iTunes firmware restore follow these steps:
Open iTunes and connect the iPhone to your Mac.
Press and hold the Home button and the Sleep/Wake button at the same time.
After exactly 10 seconds release the Sleep/Wake button. Continue holding the home button until you iTunes pops up a message telling you that it has detected an iPhone in recovery mode.
The iPhone screen will remain black
NOTE***: It may take a few attempts to get your iPhone into DFU mode. Generally, I hold down both buttons then release the Home button just before I think the Apple logo would appear. If you are still holding both buttons down and you see the Apple logo you are holding them down for too long!
this issue "apple logo on/off" but nothing else usually is an indicator that that particular iPod doesn't have the necessary boot file to boot up just like a PC during the boot up process. One can go to Itunes site and download it to one's iPod and the problem is fixed.
Sorry I don't have the name of that specific file but that's how this problem was taken care of at my repair shop.
My first Gen iPod does the same thing, it turns on and off until the battery is completely drained. The only way I can keep it on sometimes is if I am letting music play or using an application but once I stop then it starts shutting on and off again. Also I noticed the best way for my to turn it on sometimes is to actually plug it into my MacBook and let it connect to I tunes.
I was really !#^&@@ when this problem first occurred but now I have a second Gen I pod touch and A iPhone 3GS and I don't have any problems. I really think Apple restructured the internal format of the device but if anyone has a suggestion of how to fix the turning on and off problem I would really appreciate it.
This happened to me too...i am 14 and fixed this problem by myself a few months ago.
So first, you plug in the iPod and let it charge for about 10 mins or so...until it like starts to show the Apple logo repeatedly.
Then as its booting, HOLD DOWN the Home button, for approximately 10-20 seconds (sometimes you need to hold down Home and Power for 10 seconds, the the Home button for 10 seconds). Either way, you will get a PLUG INTO ITUNES screen, which is like an arrow pointing to the iTunes logo.
Then plug the iPOd into a computer with iTunes installed.
The computer itself will recognize an iPod (i did this on Windows)
and iTunes will display a msg that says "iTunes has detected an iPod in recovery mode blah blah blah." Continue iTunes' steps to reinstall the latest iOS and reupload/restor
As expected this will erase all previous data lol
