    Hi
    I am new to this board so hi and help!.

    My daughters ipod (8gb)had a battery lead failure.I replaced with a new battery.
    Previous to this the screen had been flickering.
    Now the ipod will start but the screen exhibits multicolors flickers etc.(will not make any sense)once I got the bitten apple but this soon went to the flickers!when connecting to I tunes it detects an ipod in recovery.The software downloads but it then tells us the ipod is uncontacable unknown error 21.
    We have tried the button pressing etc no differrence.I tried to download ibrickr but it just sat there doing nothin,
    The computer tells me I have an apple usb connected but no ipod in my compter.
    I think the idea would be to format the disc but cannot make contact.
    My daughter is no longer talking to me so there are good points!
    any help would be appreciatted

    HOW TO ENTER DFU MODE:
    ===============================================
    Step 1. Turn off your iPhone.
    Step 2. Hold down the power and home button.
    Step 3. When you see the Apple logo, release the power button but continue holding the home button down.
    Step 4. Open iTunes and wait for it to tell you that its in restore mode.
