5th Generation iPod Won't Turn On [Solved/Closed]

Ask a question Kitty - Last answered on Oct 14, 2017 at 12:35 PM by Teah
Hello. My ipod touch 5th generation won't turn on... I tried charging it, and holding down the power button, and nothing. Just a black screen. And I'm pretty sure the battery life wasn't close to being dead... Please help!

i had the same problem and I went to another thread with same problem being discussed and someone had posted this....(it worked for me)

"Try plugging in the charger then press and hold down the Center button and the Menu button at the same time."

oh thx a lot. I was so worried when my iPod just went blank.
I was listening to music on it this morning and it was fine.
I left it in me trenchcoat pocket, and as I was on me way back home in the tube, I wanted to listen to music, but all I heard was the clicking sound of the wheel, but nothing in the display.
bloody hell man. I hope that never happens again for as long as I exist.

THIS WORKED! I was skeptical because I had no usual warning that my battery was low etc. My iPod just went black..DEAD . But this was a nice surprise. At first the low battery icon appeared, then the Apple logo, finally after a few more seconds the locked screen ~ Whew! Thank you!

Thank you so so much. My son has autism n this happened to his iPod and I did this and it worked. I dread to think what would have happened if it hadn't worked as his iPod is his comfort. So to who posted the post I honestly cannot thank you enough x x

Wish it had worked for me, my Ipod is totally dead and will not turn on thought it might be the charger lead but that works fine for my iPhone, 2nd Ipod I have had and this has happened, what is wrong?

worked for me too, after 30 seconds of holding buttons down, any less than that seemed useless! thanks a lot for the quick fix!!!
