    HI
    I have a 16 gb ipod touch and it has suddenly started to act up. The first thing that happened is that the backlight will not come on. I have the brightness cranked up and the auto brightness turned off. Ive tried numerous reboots and have reset all the settings and it still does not work. Next I tried restoring it and it comes up with a message saying "The Ipod "Dewey" (my ipod's name) could not be restored. This device isn't eligible for the requested build." I would try doing a DFU restore but I thought twice on that if it could get stuck in DFU if it cant restore. PLEASE HELP because in the past week my Dirt Bike, PS3 and now my ipod has broken and I dont have much money and am soo pissed that I could put my fist through my computer monitor.

    just click restore, no shift. and you can get out of dfu if it fails.

    i don't have a warranty anymore or a apple store near me, i might just buy a used one off of ebay or amazon. Or do you think that a different company will fix it? If there is, is there any places that you can suggest?
