If the sound isn't working from the headphones then normally it's just a new headphone/hold switch cable that's needed, but if it's not working from the docking bay either then you have a problem with your logic board.

IPod touch 4 sound output problems


Try using a very fine cloth to get into the headphones port and the charging port. If all else fails, you will probably have to take it into the Apple Store :D

For some reason my ipod touch won't play when I plug it into my stereo. It is playing out of the ipod itself. How do I turn this off.


Hello.
This is a very common problem, you may have to get a different jack that works with the headset jack thats on the iPod. iPhones and iPods have a weird style jack on the top that wont allow most headphone or 3.0mm to 3.0mm jacks to go fully inside the jack causing it so there is not connection with the jack itself in the iPod. You can check this by turning the volume up and down using the rocker buttons on the side while you are at the home screen with no music playing and see if it says speaker or headphones when your turn the volume up and down. Speaker means there is no jack connection, headphone means that there should be music playing through the stereo. Thats using the jack.
If your talking about an iHome or other direct plug in stereo specifically for the iPods and iPhones, make sure that the dock is the correct dock for the iPod, and make sure that it is pressed fully down onto the dock. If all that is correct there should be no problem. If the problem still is happening, it may be your stereo. =/ Goodluck! Hope this helps!

Sound does not come out of docking station


It is most likely the 30 pin connector on the Logitech that is the problem. They can break if the incorrect iPod inserts have been used. Try playing someone else's iPod on it, if no go it's busted. Repairs are difficult if not impossible. Sorry

Ihome won't play ipod, even after resetting ipod I have de same problem. I got an itouch 2nd generation and docked it on a speaker that supports it. It worked fine for two or three hours, but suddenly it...


Welcome to the wonderful world of the iHome frying the Ipod.
Your iHome, has most likely fried the mainboard on your ipod.
to check plug a usb into the ipod and connect to the computer.
if it comes up disconnect the usb and try a headphones in the jack.
if it doesn;t play sound its fried and you will need a new mainboard.
if it does play through the headphone jack, your lucky and keep it off the dock.

I have fixed at least 30 ipods taken out by ihome docks and other docks.
they are terrible for the ipod. Even Apple sells the docks on their website
that shows how much they care about the product.

Wont play through my bose system anymore


the apple ipod are very delicate and it seems that docks are very harsh on the internal workings IE: motherboard of the ipod. it not just the touch, it's all ipods.
My suggestion is to check the headphone jack and if you get sound, don;t play your ipod on the dock at all. Your dock has probably done some damage to the audio circuit on the board.
If you get sound through the headphone jack save your ipods life and just use it through the jack.
I have replaced numerous motherboards on ipods played on docks. they just don;t handle the charging and playing very well whether it's heat or just the wrong voltage I am not sure.
But my first question to a customer is have you played it on a dock.
I would stay away from the dock

Cant hear songs


It sounds like your headphone/hold cable is faulty. Try plugging it into a sound device with a docking bay. If no sound comes out of there either then it's a faulty logic board.

Volume code


As far as I know, there is no unlock for the volume. If you go into settings there is a volume limit. If you go to it just scroll up to the maximum and press the center button. That's maximum volume set. Then play a song and scroll the volume all the way up. If you're still not getting any sound then your headphone cable might be broken. Try the iPod on some sort of docking bay that produces sound. If it works on there then you definitely have a faulty headphone/hold cable. If it doesn't work on the docking bay, then you have a faulty logic board.

IPod MA146LL/A no sound


You should check and see if the headphone jack is broke or not. That sometimes accounts for the reason why sound won't come out.

Nano shows song playing but nothing happens


Make sure your headphones are working properly by testing with your computer headphone jack.

Is the headphone port on the Nano loose?

Connect the Nano to your iPod dock and see if you can head audio through the docks headphone jack.

If the headphones work, and you can get audio out of the dock headphone port, then there is a problem with your Nanos headphone jack.

Using my ipod in my car


try the volume setting on your ipod. it may have to be adjusted. go to settings, volume and see where you are on the slider and adjust to the volume you want. ipods come factory set at a predetermined volume level.
