sleep wake button not working
hi, the sleep/wake button on my first gen iPod touch wont work, i cant put it to sleep. so the battery dies within hours.
Try holding the sleep and home button at the same time. Hold them until you see a white apple appear on the screen (ignore the shutdown screen and keep holding the buttons until you get to the white apple. REMEMBER HOLD TILL THE WHITE APPLE!)
When holding the buttons for a hard reboot you will see:
Screen with shutdown message and slider
White apple screen
It might just need the hard reboot.
Not sure if holding both would work since the issue is the sleep wake button does not work anyway.
An alternative would be to go into settings > General > Auto Lock > set auto - lock to one minute.
Then when your iPod is not being used it will go to sleep after 1 minute.
Not a perfect solution but better then a dead battery.
Hope it helps.
I can help you diagnose the problem here. First take off your backplate so you can see the battery and logic board. In the top right corner you will see a gold "z" spring. take a small screwdriver and angle it on the ipod touch somewhere that is metal and touch it to the z spring. you need to make a ground, you can even just move it around a bunch trying to make a connection. If the ipod sleeps or wakes up then you just need a flex cable for the sleep button,,
I was successful in getting my sleep/wake button to work by fiddling with the mechanical button from the inside the iPhone. With the phone charged, you can orient the screen so you can see if/when the button works or does not. There is a small metal strip on the inside of the button that I could gently push up (towards the case) or down (away from the case), and this would allow the button to work -- but only intermittently. A permanent fix was achieved by slightly de-torquing (ie, un-screwing) the 2 teensy screws on the underside of the button mechanism. I really just "relieved the pressure" on these 2 screws, I did not really unscrew them at all. This is what worked for me. Good luck. Tom
