    My Ipod Touch keeps turning off randomly when im listening to music or on the internet. The battery is fully charged when i use it to so its not the battery. I just start it up and it turns off like in 5mins. It seems that when i touch the black thing on the back corner of the Ipod it turns off. Do I have to call apple so they can fix it or what.(Its not hacked)

    Did you try doing a full restore?

    Will it shut down if it is connected to your mac?

    ipod touch 3g keeps shutting off

    Hi I am not happy. I got my Ipod for xmas and everything was good. till two weeks ago when it started just shutting of with little lines as if a glitch. if i tried to search it would go off. so i reset, restored, etc and no luck. i never upgraded nor jailbreak. I wonder if it has something to do with an app cause battery is good and plenty of memory. I took it to apple they could not fix it so they replaced it. Then i tried to use backup and i have no saved games and its doing the same thing the last one did. even worse it wont even come on. What is going on? Could it be a bug from computer or app? maybe i shouldnt off restored apps from old one cause thats where the error may be.

    Please help me!
    My email chevy3de@yahoo.com

    Sincerely,

    Shannon

    Do not use the backup, especially since that was on your iPod that had the error. I would suggest wiping it clean and starting off with everything anew, sadly. Glad I could be of some help. :) :D :apple:
