    I got an ipod touch yesterday and this morning i went to turn it on and it wont turn on. I plugged it into the computer to see if anything would happen and all i got was the sound when it connects to itunes. I was wondering if i had locked the screen somehow. Is there any button that slides to lock or something like that. Obviously as it wont turn on it could possibly be faulty. Please can somebody help me. Any replies will be highly appreciated!

    Theres no lock/hold switch like other iPods. There's just the sleep button on the top that turns the screen off. The only 'unlock' thing is the on-screen slider when you first turn the screen on.

    Have you tried holding down both buttons (the home button under the screen and the sleep button) for 10 or 15 seconds to see if it will reboot at all?

    The good side of the grass.
    I suggest you take it back. They'll exchange it at this point no problem.

    my suggestion would be to restore the device and start from a clean firmware restore before taking it back and see if that works first.
