    I have an older Ipod Touch that has stopped working correctly. The battery will not stay charged. I can charge it AFTER and only after I restore it. It will only charge with a computer not an actual plug in.

    When it finally gets charged, it will work but it will touch the screen itself. I can go to the home screen and it will always take me to the exact same spot every time.

    Anyone have and ideas about this and what I can do to help correct it.

    Somehow I read, iPod Touch, self control and quite misinterpreted this whole thread.

    If you bought it from an Apple store you could try taking it back and asking them to change the battery for you. I had something similar happen with my 1st gen. iPod Nano; at the time Apple charged something like £30 here in the UK (about $50) for a battery replacement but rather than open up my iPod and change the battery, they gave me a whole new refurbished unit. OK, I had to pay for the battery replacement so it wasn't free but I've still got the iPod now so when Apple fixes something for you it tends to stay fixed.
