    HI!
    OK SO THIS IS THE STORY:
    I WAS GIVEN AN ITOUCH BY A STRANGER ( FRIEND OF A FRIEND OF A FRIEND...)THAT DIDNT WORK. HE TOLD ME THAT HE WAS IN THE MIDDLE OF RESTORING IT AND IT JUST WENT BLACK.
    OK SO I TOOK HANDS AT IT:
    BASIC SYMPTOMS:
    *DOES NOT CONNECT TO PC OR LAPTOP
    *BLACK SCREEN APPEARS EVERY NOW AND THEN ( -WHEN I HOLD HOME AND POWER BUTTON FOR 10 SECONDS IT DISSAPEARS)
    I HAVE TRIED SEVERAL LISTED ON THE INTERNET COMBINATIONS TO TRY TO RUN DFU BUT NOTHING
    IT DOES HAVE POWER RUNING THROUGH IT.
    what to do??????????????????????
    YOUR HELP IS HIGHLY APPRECIATED PPL

    OK SO I FIGURED OUT THE CYCLE IT HAS OR GOES THROUGH(THE ONLY WAY TO GET THE BLACK SCREEN WHICH I DESCRIBED BEFORE):
    **(tHIS HAPPENS SOMETIMES OTHER TIMES NO RESPONSE AT ALL)
    **WHEN ITS UNPLUGGED:
    I HOLD DOWN THE POWER FOR 10 OR 15 SECONDS, BLACK SCREEN APPEARS-
    IF I THEN HOLD DOWN THE HOME BUTTON ALONG WITH THE POWER FOR 10 SECONDS BLACK SCREEN DISAPPEARS, THEN I'LL LEAVE IT ALONE AND AFTER 10 OR MORE SECONDS THE SCREEN APPEARS AGAIN BY ITSELF

    **WHEN ITS PLUGGED IN:
    SAME THING BUT INITIALLY PRESSING THE POWER BUTTON TO GET A BLACK SCREEN TAKES ABOUT 5-7 SECONDS LONGER, SOMETIMES DOESNT EVEN SHOW UP AND IF I LEAVE IT ALONE AFTER PRESSING THE POWER BUTTON THE BLACK SCREEN COMES.

    **WHEN I UNPLUG IT(SOMETIMES)I BARELY SEE VERY FINE LINES ALMOST INVISIBLE THEN THE BLACK SCREEN

    IM AM SO BAFFLED WITH THIS BLACK SCREEN

    I HOPE THIS POSTING DOESNT READ AS BAFFLED AS I AM.
