    I Have A Fix

    Exactly the same happened to me. I opened my e-mail and the touch screen wouldn't work. I tried to restart but of course I couldn't because the touch screen wasn't working to slide it across. So then I looked on the internet and found you could restart it WITHOUT the touch screen.

    All you have to do is hold the power button and home button until an apple logo appears (It's only about 10 seconds) After that mine worked fine. It is a bit slow the first after you restart it but everything works.

    I hope this helps everyone and good luck! :)

  4. We're screwed

    You're screwed dude. Same thing happened to me, and I have valuable info in there. On the notes I have songs that I wrote that are very good and have emotional meaning about someone. Now its all gone. And everything else.

    ipod stuck on slide to power off screen

    my touch screen was not responding, so i tried to turn it off and it got me to the slide to power off and cancel screen. my touch screen continued to be unresponsive. so i pressed the home button and the on/off button at the same time, and it worked.

    same same

    I have had almost the same problem as previously posted. I recieved this ipod touch from a friend... It didnt work (in respects to pretty much all of it) half of the touchpad didn't work, couldn't slide to open and couldn't press buttons. I ended up forcefully restoring it. This worked for around one night, the next morning I went on a long-as bus trip and the touchscreen stopped working again. I reset it almost 50 times, then got pissed and left it alone. Upon arriving at the location the ipod fixed it's-self. Now it mainly works, i just can't press 'i' on my keyboard. I'm thinking it is water damage but friend doesn't think so and i havn't gotten water anywhere near it. Waranty is out so apple is no good. I'll try the silica and rice ideas previously suggested but not verry hopefull. Lolz good luck to every1 and thanks for the ideas.

    My ipod

    My ipod touch screen will NOT let me slide it. I haven't had it near any source of water or anything wet, what may be the reason? Can anyone help me? I have tried restoreing the ipod and it did not work.
