    1. Hold the power button and the home button for 10 seconds, then let go of the power button but keep the home pressed in for another 6-10 seconds. This should enter you into DFU mode.

    2. Now connect to iTunes and it should ask you if you want to restore, you can either restore to a previous date or if you want to start fresh you can download a restore firmware and to install it onto your iPod, hold the shift key and left click on restore and then browse to the downloaded file.

    no im not nubie on restoring or jailbreaking, but in this case i really new. When im browsing on my ipod touch its suddenly dead. I thougt it was my battery. When i charge it with travel charger it has to wake with pineapple logo on its screen (im using cydia), but nothing happen just blank screen. N than when im trying on computer its same.

    If you have a dock, put it on the dock and leave it for a while, then take it off and plug it into the computer, this way if its just the screen thats out you will still have battery, then try restore, hard restore, and then a full ipod restore. Not sure if its the same problem but thats what ma m8 did when this kinda thing happened to him.
