iPod touch stuck in recovery mode even after restore.
Thanks in advance to anyone that can point me in the right direction for this issue.
I have an iPod touch (4th Gen) that has a completely blank (dark) screen. Connecting the device to my computer, I do hear the alert from the iPod to tell me a device is connected, and then iTunes notifies me it recognizes the iPod is in recovery mode and needs to be restored.
What I've tried:
- Resetting. held sleep/wake and home button wile connected to power. nothing happens
- Restoring in iTunes. Restore appears to complete. (no error messages)
- DFU mode restore
As soon as restore completes, iTunes gives me the same message about detecting ipod in recovery mode.
Anything else I can try before cracking this thing open? Even then I still wouldn't know what to look for hardware-wise to fix.
Is this a good question?
