I have recently been on holiday and believe that moisture may have gotten into my ipod as the volume kept turning itself down. When i returned home some 4 days later I decided to try a restore on the ipod which worked perfectly. I have gone to turn my ipod on this morning and a grey screen came on with the apple sign which then went away again. The ipod is now unresponsive (wont turn on).


I have tried to connect the ipod to itunes but it doesnt show up (it makes the usual usb connection sound but does nothing else).


I have tried to connect it to an external power source but the ipod still does nothing... I would have expected to see the charging symbol - but nothing.


It may be useful to know that I had to let the batter drain as when the volume issues started initially, it would not let me turn the ipod off.



Any help would be much appreciated.


Kind regards




iPod touch, Windows 7

Try:- iOS: Not responding or does not turn on- Also try DFU mode after try recovery modeHow to put iPod touch / iPhone into DFU mode « Karthik's scribblings- If not successful and you can't fully turn the iOS device fully off, let the battery fully drain. After charging for an least an hour try the above again.- Try on another computer                  - If still not successful that usually indicates a hardware problem and an appointment at the Genius Bar of an Apple store is in order.Apple Retail Store - Genius Bar
