IPod Shuffle...Volume control

I can turn the volume all the way down but can turn up the volume only a certain amount... I'm quite sure there is nothing wrong with my hearing!!! But I can only hear my music clearly if there are no other sounds like traffic... The highest sound I can get is not very loud at all... I have had my iPod less than a year should I send it back? Charging my battery makes no difference. Thanks for your help... Thank you for your help.

Re: iPod Shuffle...Volume control

You didnt specify one important thing: did the problem appeared one sunny day, or was it like this since you got the ipod? if it suddenly will not allow you to reach certain volume level (i mean something like - highest level is 10, but it will not go beyond 7), it is certainly a very weird problem. in this case you can send it for replacing, or you can try reseting the unit. just make sure you backup all data. if situation exists from day one, it might just be the way they made it. I heard lots of people complain about volume level in ipod. in this case you can either look on the net for any software that allow you to inclease volume (although im not sure if there are any for your model), or you can try a better set of earphones, that will give you more power. good luck.

I am trying to set the volume, but everytime I try it defaults back to the original setting. How do I set the volume?

Depends on what you do. on ipods, other than touch and shuffle, go to the main menu, holding down menu will take u to the main menu from anywhere, go to settings and then to volume limit then move it over where you want it then press the middle nutton then hold down menu then go to now playing and u can turn the volume where you want it.

Your battery might be going out. If you are sure that your battery is OK, then go to iTunes and make sure that you can see your iTunes library.
  1. Go to the menu bar and click on Edit. Then click on Select all. All of your music will be selected and turn blue.
  2. Right Click anywhere in the music library.
  3. You will get a message that asks if you want to edit all of your music library. You will click 'Yes'.
  4. A new window will open. There will be 4 tabs. Pick the one that says Options. There you will see a slider to adjust the volume in all of your music. The slider will be set in the middle. You can slide it to the right to about 80-90.
  5. Close your window. iTunes will begin changing the volume on all of your music.
  6. When it is finished, plug in your iPod and see how much different it sounds. Turn down the volumn on your iPod until you can readjust it.
Hope that helps.

Ipod lock code

  1. Enable hidden folders.
    In Windows Explorer,go to "Tools", "Folder Options". Then click on the tab called "View", and under "Hidden Files and Folders", click "Show Hidden Files and Folders".
  2. Navigate ("My Computer" to double-click on the icon of your attached iPod) to the hidden folder named "iPod_Control", and once there click on the folder "Device". Once there, delete the file named "_volumelocked".
  3. Eject your iPod. Then, restart your iPod. You can do this by holding down the center and menu button for at least 6 seconds.
  4. Once your iPod has rebooted, check and make sure that it worked. Simply go into "Settings", "Volume Limit". If it asks for a PIN, you did it WRONG. Retry the above procedure.

Apple Ipod voice problem

i had the same problem with my ipod and the volume limit control had been set to playback at low volume...if you have the ability to change settings try this ; when ipod switched on , go down to "settings" and click on this and then select "volume limit" ; click on this and then use the wheel to set the maximum volume you wish to use ( i set it at about 80/100 to ensure no distortion) hopefully this will solve your problem
