I have only had my iPod Touch since Christmas 2009, but this morning it wouldn't turn on.
I dropped it a week ago and it now has a few little scratches on it, but it has been charging fine over the rest of the week.
I'm holding the Power button, and I have tried plugging it into my laptop and my Pc, with 2 different cords and in all of the different USB ports.
My brother told me I might need a new battery, but I haven't had it that long so I don't think that is the case.
Does anyone know what I can do?

Maybe its in like DFU/Restore mode. Try holding the power and home button.

    I had almost the same problem. I got my iPod Touch this Christmas too, but today suddenly the screen turned white and it wouldn't turn on or off anymore. Neither my computer nor my iTunes recognized my iPod anymore but then I came to this topic and found that I had to hold the power-button and the home-button at the same time. So I tried...

    And it worked!

    I'm very happy now, thanks everybody for posting this tip. and I hope that your problems with your iPod will work themselves out too!

    Good luck!

    Hi all,

    I just got my new IPod touch last friday (friday march 12th, 2010), and after about 6 hours of use, it's totally crashed... It's fully charged, but it won't open, it can't connect to my laptop, on any usb port...

    Anyway, does anyone else find it curious that it happens to all of us on the day when we change daylight saving time? Can it be a bug in the OS?

    mine white screened today and I have held both buttons down at the same time and still nothing. I had this happen one other time and I reset the whole thing and it came back up, but this time I haven't been so lucky. What do I need to do next?
