I just got my ipod back from smashing the screen and my lock button doesn't work, also the ipod is disabled and I cant connect to itunes because its locked with a passcode. So I was wondering how to reset the ipod without having to use the lock button?
If you mean you want to do a reboot, you have to have a functioning power button. Where did you have the iPod repaired that such a poor job was done? You need to take it back and insist they do they job right and return a fully functioning iPod to you.
