    I just bought an 2nd gen ipod touch 16 gb off craigslist for $90 and it wont turn on and is not detected by my itunes i just downloaded the latest version of itunes and i'v looked every were on the web for some kinda help and tried every possiable way i can of turning it on and nothing happens not even a flicker on the screen i'v has it plugged in for the last 3 hours and still nothing. The guy i bought it from is not responding to me and the warrenty is over so apple wont help me at all and i don't know if it's been jailbroken or what but it wont even give me the start up logo or anything it's just a black screen not even the backlight is on. can someone please help me. Thank you to anyone who has taken time to look at this and sorry for any spelling mistakes i'm just in a rush and very dissapointed with my purchues.

    Okay, so this might work. Plug the USB cord into your computer, but not your iPod. Make sure that iTunes is open. Then HOLD the home button WHILE you plug in the other side of the cord into your iPod. The white Apple logo should appear. You need to KEEP HOLDING the home button until your iPod goes into Recovery Mode. Then just restore it using iTunes. If that doesn't work, then try to put it into DFU mode.

    Aren't there certain rules for buying and selling stuff on the Internet via whatever website is kinda like the middle man (like eBay if you buy it there)? Whatever object is being sold has to fit the minimum requirements or something, or else the seller is forced by law to take it back for a return, or something like that. Do what you can be contacting the guy who sold it to you or the owner of the Craig's List website.

    Wait why did you buy an iPod for $90? That would seem very suspicious to me..
