The sound on my iPod Touch cuts in & out. Sometimes both will work, but then if the ear phone jack is moved a certain way the sound will got out on the right side. I have bought new head phones, so that is not the problem.


Defective ipod touch. Take it into the Apple store or call their 1800 # and exchange it for a new one. You can go to gethuman.com and get the Apple #. Keep in mind that Apple won't do sh.t for you if you spilled water on this thing or cracked the screen.

my home button wont work i press it and it doesnt do nothing i have the ipod touch 1st generation


hi guys dont worry about it. its not really a major problem because sometimes the ipod has really really tiny malfunctions like this and no, im not from the apple store so dont ask anyway all you have to is this: plug in your ipod to the computer using the usb cable. now it should say that it is syncing if not, sync your ipod. while it is syncing, press cancel sync on your ipod touch and it should cancel and take you back to the home screen. This shouldnt happen again but if it does, at least you have a way to return to your home menu cya :)
