all you do is hold the home button then while still holding down the home button hold volume up button then while still holding those buttons go head and hold the power off button and hold that until you see the apple sign

It doesn't work. It doesn't appear to switch off. I cannot put it into any mode. When I try to put it into different modes and connect it to the computer it just switches back on.

I want to know how to get this iPod into the correct mode to restore it and be able to tell that it is in the correct mode when I cannot get any display other than white or nothing. Okay?

Press the power and home button for 10 sec for a reboot.

Hmm, I'm sure I said I've tried everything which of course would include that.

I have exactly the same problem, iPod 4g, WSoD, and rebooting doesn't help, 3x tapping the home button fast doesnt help, rebooting with the volume up button pressed doesn't work, rebooting it from PC doesn't work. :(

Have you read my response at the top of this page? Better than killing yourself.

P.S. Please before you do the final ultimate solution, ensure to write, date and sign your last will and testament. Don't forget to blame Apple and Steve Job.

I just had this happen to me. I let the power run out and then charge it. Try that.

@Alexis

Other than the repair shop, not for the moment.

Sorry but don't kill yourself, the world without you would not be the same.
