Executioner Five Level 1 Level 1

Have an iPod touch 5G.  Hadn't tried to use Siri in quite a while.  Wanted to use Siri yesterday.  Wifi on and connected, Location Services all on, etc.  Try to start Siri...i see a Voice Control screen for a split second, and then back to original screen.


I go back into settings...and I notice that Siri is set to OFF, even though I know it was on.  I turn it on...back out of Settings.  Go back into Settings...it's off.


Can someone please help?

    If the reset does not work:

    - Reset all settings      

    Go to Settings > General > Reset and tap Reset All Settings.

    All your preferences and settings are reset. Information (such as contacts and calendars) and media (such as songs and videos) aren’t affected.

    - Restore from backup. See:                                 

    iOS: How to back up                             

    - Restore to factory settings/new iOS device.

    If still problem, make an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store since it appears you have a hardware problem.
