MP3 and digital media players!

Two thoughts here.

On a machine of this age, there's a good chance that any electrolytic capacitors are well past their best. It may be worth replacing them all (it's not hard to identify suitable replacements and they're very inexpensive) before one of them goes bang - it being much easier to identify a suitable replacement by reading an intact can than by trying to piece together lumps of shrapnel you've just sponged out the works.

The history of problems coming on half way through a record hints at a component overheating problem. Have a careful look around for components showing signs of distress. At the same time, examine all the soldered connections you can find, as dry joints can sometimes behave differently when warm (look for soldered joints which aren't as shiny as their neighbours, don't very evidently "wet" both the surfaces they're meant to join, or look all balled up rather than the nice concave shape you expect to see)

Good luck.

My ipod is nt gettin on....the apple symbol blinks and it pops out.this happens even wen charging.for a few seconds the light comes wit the apple symbol then suddenly it goes off with a popping sound

Your Hard Drive for this iPod has gone bad. The popping is the sound of your Hard Drive trying to read. The inside of a hard drive is like a record player, what would be an arm and needle on a record player is similar inside the Hard Drive, Most likely the Arm is broken.

The music is distorted when i turn the volume all the way up

The battery is your problem and needs a replacement, as denigration of the sound quality is frequently
a symptom when an amplifier is not sufficieently powered.

Replace your battery, it will no longer take a charge from the usb.

Playing songs at certain volume

Several things can effect the quality of your files. 1. Check your headphones by comparing them with others. 2. The file quality may be too low, you can test that by getting a higher quality MP3 file and comparing the two. 3. If you are creating the MP3 files yourself, be sure to watch the sound recording level. Allowing it to stay in the red can produce distortion while recording ay too low of a level can result in low voulume as well as possible distortions. If none of these correct the issue, you may need to replace the player.
