My iPod Touch wont turn on and the home button is broken?

My iPod Touch wont turn on and the home button is broken?

My Ipod Touch (16GB, no camera) wont turn on! It was fully charged, and I just used it and put it on sleep. I tried to turn it back on again but it wasn't responding. This has happened before, so I tried doing what I did last time, get into into recovery mode by plugging it in and holding down the home button and power button etc etc,

A few weeks ago . I was on my way to dance practice and my phone was perfectly fine. I was using it the whole time. Then i left it alone for a good 15 min and when my phone wouldn't turn on at all. There was nothing on the screen but it wasent my first time that this happen but. I was the first time that my home button didn't work. So i was crying and i was researching solutions to help me with my problem. And there were none i tried calling apple store and they didn't help at all. Then i tried to research again and i found a person that said to just leave your phone not charged for a day or a couple of miniutes . And i did that and the dead battery came up when i pressed the power button. I charged it and it working ever since then. Im very greatful that it works and i hope i helped people with this comment.

Leave your device alone uncharged for a day or two and then try the power button, it should show the dead battery icon, if so, charge it and it should go back to normal

The cu-tip and rubbing alcohol method works. I once had a broken home button and tried this method and it worked thankfully. Put rubbing alcohol at the end of a cu-tip and then rub the cu-tip around the home button. This will help get any dirt and dust that might have been clogged. look at the cu-tip after, you will see dirt and dust and its just gross but this works and its easy

You need to use a jailbreak tool to get into DFU mode without working buttons. Instructions can be found here. You do not need to actually jailbreak the device for this to work.

Hold the volume button down and the power button down at the same time it might not work because I don't know if you have to have a charged or dead ipod
