    Hi

    I have been given a 1st gen ipod touch, I've searched these forums high and low and can't find anyone with the same problem.
    Basically the ipod only comes on when plugged into the wall and when it does come on it only shows the white apple logo if i hold the home button the usb itunes image shows, but as soon as i unplug to plug into my mac the screen goes black. The USB connection doesn't show any logo just a black screen.
    If I do the hold the sleep button home button DFU thing itunes says waiting for ipod then the usual error 1602 message.
    Someone please help...

    After a few years, the batteries in Apple products become almost unusable, I believe this may have happened to your iPod Touch 1G

    I also thought the same thing that it must be the battery but surely it would charge just as well off of a usb to mac. If I could somehow get it to wall charge and sync at the same time I think I could sort it.
    The mac will respond to it if I do the DFU thing but there is no display and it comes up only with the 1602 error.

    yeah have tried that, Also tried running through usb on a pc running vista and I'm getting the same results. If it was the battery the usb would still power it, right?

    try sending it to a professional iPod Touch repair place, they do it for SOO cheap, like $20. that should fix it. also I may be opening my own online repair shop soon, so you can check that out once it opens ^_^

    Yes it should, technically. Unless there's some internal parts that grab the power straight from the battery.

    I'll fit a new battery and see where that takes me. Failing that I guess it's the bin.

    Have you tried getting your iPod touch into DFU mode while it is plugged in? The screen should be black at the time. Leave it plugged in for a few hours and try again with your computer.
