hanging on apple logo
got a 2nd gen ipod touch and when i turn it on, it just hangs on the apple logo for about 20 secs, then it just powers off.
tried again with it plugged into mains and still does the same. cant seem to enter restore mode and when plugged into computer, itunes wont pick it up.
what is the correct procedure to enter restore mode and reload the firmware?
cheers in advance
My battery was going dead and that's what happened to me. Mine would boot to logo then turn off then reboot again. I did what Jake Devincenzi said and was able to get it to charge, but due to the battery going dead it couldn't hold a charge so it just went dead again when unplugged. I replaced battery and it works fine now.
