    Been lurking here awhile
    Just got refurbished iPod Touch from apple site. Turned it on and says slide to unlock, i dragged my finger across and it didn't slide. Won't do anything.

    I plugged it into computer and it is recognized and I can sync but still can't unlock.

    When I press the power button and it pops up the slide to turn off it doesn't work either.

    Now this is the first time I have seen a iPod Touch so is there any trick to this, I just need to drag my finger across right? I don't need to press down or am I missing something else?

    I have tried the following:
    reset to defaults through itunes
    held down home and power until apple logo came up
    loaded upgrade to software (1.5 or something like that)
    reset back to defaults
    pressed the home button twice and tried sliding the volume and it wouldn't

    All the other troubleshooting on the support site require it to be unlocked.

    So am I going to have to wait for tomorrow morning to call Apple to get a rma or does anyone have any other ideas?

    Thanks for any help.

    Sounds to me like this refurb has a non-reactive touch screen. You've done all you can, leave this to the experts. Bad luck dude. :(

    If you tried the steps I tried in the original post then its probably dead. I contacted support told them what I had tried and they replaced it.
