DIY repairs for corrupted iPods
Apple products can be complex, and repairing them is oftenbetter left in the hands of professionals who understand how all the different components work. However, there are a few things you can tryyourself if you are experiencing any problems with your Apple iPod touch.
A common issuewith the iPod comes from loading corrupted music files onto your device. When your iPod becomes corrupted, it’s common forthe device tofreeze or stop responding to any controls. In these cases, resetting the device can sometimes be a quick fix solution.
One good approach is to open iTunes on your computer and manually plug in your device with a USB cord. This simple action can even be enough to unfreeze your iPod.
If not, you can use iTunes to start the “restore” process. It is important not to disconnect the device while the restore is in process, and this could take several minutes to complete. After iTunes notifies you that the restore is complete, remember to use the “eject” button rather than simply unplugging.
