Common iPod Touch Problems

Music and its beats have set the young ones, teenagers, and everyone to dance on the rocking floor. Well everyone is fond of music and hence wants to have the best music player or so for himself/herself. Everyone was in search of a music player that had the unique and most advanced features with the cutest of all looks. Keeping this need in mind apple launched ipod touch. After its launch millions of people have bought it and are making use of it. Some are really satisfied from this product where as many people are unsatisfied as well because they are not getting the true value of the money they have spent.

Common iPod Touch Problems List

Well some of the most common ipod touch problems are mentioned as under:

1. One of the mostly faced and most common ipod touch problems is the performance of the ipod touch as per the expectations of the users or customers. What does it mean when we speak of the performance? It means the freezing of the browser sometimes in the middle of the operation. This freezing of the browser results due to slow operation of the processor. As per the survey conducted it was found that in order to deal with this problem customers have to reset or restart the ipod touch.
2. Slow speed of the processor or software was another problem being faced by many people as per the survey results. Because of slow speed of processor the performance was also lowered hence customers are being recommended to update their software regularly.
3. Some people reported that while listening to music in case you log in to the safari browser then the music stops playing which is really very irritating for them. This is the most common ipod touch problems faced so far.
4. Inability of Wi-Fi to connect to several network connections available is another problem that has been reported by many users using ipod touch.
5. Automatic repetition of song has been disturbing a lot of people. As per the complaints registered by many people it has been found that once a song is finished then rather then playing the next song the ipod touch sometimes repeats the previously played song.
6. Some people also reported that their ipod touch does not turn on even if it is fully charged and in order to turn it on you have to connect the USB to it. Once the USB is connected to it the process of turning on takes hardly anytime.
7. Maximum number of people and users of ipod touch complained that the ipod automatically quits an application after running it for some amount of time. Remember the time after which it quits that application is fixed. After the application is quit a blank home screen appears on the main screen with high transparency level and in order to bring back the normal operation one has to reset the ipod touch.

All the above mentioned problems are the most common ipod touch problems being faced by the people. Please share here if you have another ipod touch problems, and you have a better solution for the problem.

  80. whenever i am listening to my music on my new ipod touch,and i want to take the headphones out,i can’t because the speaker does not work what do i do i bought the ipod so that i could listen to music without headphones

  81. I bought a 32GB iTouch in September 2008 and now it has lost several functions. The battery life lasts only an hour at best, even when not in use. The headphone port is dysfunctional so I cannot listen to music. Last, it will no longer connect to wifi in any location, even though it can sometimes recognize the hotspot’s signal. If you can help me out please let me know. Because the warranty is up, all Apple has suggested is paying $80 to get it replaced or trading it in for 10% off a new model.
    Thank you for your time and consideration.

The game worked for a few days and then I went to open it again and it show the rock band page and closed imediatly. I have anouther game that does this to but I can’t figure out why. I have read around and have not yet found an answer. If you can help please respond it will help me and many others with this problem. Thanks.

  101. I just installed 2 new apps on my touch but they aren’t showing up on a “page”. I deleted a few apps thinking I had too many on here, but still no new icons. If I do a search I can open them up but that’s a pain & not something I want to do everytime I want either of these apps.

    Any idea of how to fix this?

  102. Hi, I downloaded games on my Ipod touch. At first it was fine but now when I click on a game it looks like it’s loading then just closes out. I’ve tried Resetting, Restoring, Deleting, EVERYTHING! What is wrong? I’ve been reading and a lot of people have this problem..HELP!

  103. i have the same problem. if you know what to do please e~mail me. it was almost 400$ when i bought it and i can’t use it at all now.

  104. My itouch will not power up or charge. I have tried wall charges, car chargeers, and different usb ports on two different computers. It will not respond to holding the home and on/off butting being pushed athe same time. Help.

  105. I have a backlight problem too. I’m quite handy with iPods, I’ve torn them open and replaced innards. My current iTouch I replaced the digitizer on it, and since then I’ve had poor wifi signal. But worse, the other day my backlight started randomly switching off sporadically!

    I can usually get it to come back on by hitting the sleep button and then re-waking it with the homw button. I think the home button is somehow re-activating the backlight, because if I wake the iTouch with the sleep button, it doesn’t always work.

    Anyone know if I have a loose wire or increased pressure somewhere where there shouldn’t be that’s causing this? Anyone know what else could be causing this? I’m not sending it to get fixed, I can do repaors myself, I just need to know where the problem is. Can’t find info anywhere. Please e-mail me back and help. Thanks.

  106. my ipod touch says it holds 1700 hundred something songs but i have 300 hundred on there and it says its full anybody know why!

The other day my ipod touch’s backlight wouldnt turn on all the way and could barley see the screen so i triued to turn it off but the power button now tunred up the volume and would not turn off. A few minuets later the power button finally stopped controling the volume but still wouldnt turn the ipod on or off. I tried to turn it on today and it did and the backlight was working fine but the power button was no longer working it wont turn it on or off i have to plug it in to turn it on and let it turn it self off.

    If anybody knows how to fix this please let me know
