Question about Apple iPod MA446LL/A MP3 Player

1 Answer

30GiPod has no sound

My ipod has no sound. I usually only use it in my car and it would not output any sound for a while. Then when I turned my car on it started to play again but only for a moment. I have tried other headsets and docking stations but none have worked. I got the cover off but I am not able to find any info on the web and I do not want to send it in for repair and get a different one back

First, make sure that the small bar near the top isn't switched to the "Locked " position. If this is the case, there should be a little red showing in a small divot near the slider. If this isn't the case, make sure that you haven't set any volume limit. If this is the case, when you try to turn up the volume, a little padlock icon will show up next to the bar. I hope this helps. ;)

My 80GB IPOD has stopped making audio output. i can still view photos


The chances are your headphone socket is either dirty or broken. A few places still replace the headphone jacks on iPod Classics. A number of them advertise on eBay. Search for "iPod repair" in eBay or in Google
All the best

I want to connect my ipod to the radio


According to Apple, over 90 percent of new cars retailed in the United States are equipped with iPod connectivity.
The iPod has become such a popular device, that many car stereos are now furnished with a 30-pin dock connector cable in order to link to the portable media player.
But this built-in compatibility is not essential for connecting your iPod to your car stereo. In fact, there are numerous options for integrating your iPod with your car.
Recently manufactured vehicles can support an iPod connection through an auxiliary input.
And FM transmitters can be used to stream your iPod's audio files through an FM frequency. iPods can even be connected to much older car stereos with the use of a tape adapter.

Connect an iPod to a Car Stereo Through the Auxiliary Input
Insert an extension cable with 3.5 mm stereo connectors on each end into the headphone output of your iPod. Insert the other end of the 3.5 mm stereo connector cable into your car stereo system's auxiliary input. Press the "Aux" button on your car stereo. Turn on your iPod and select media to play. The stereo will now stream audio from your iPod. b> Connect an iPod to a Car Stereo With an FM Transmitter Insert the FM transmitter into the 30-pin dock connector of your iPod. Turn on your iPod to activate the FM transmitter. Select the FM frequency you want your device to stream audio to on your car stereo. Turn on the car stereo and tune it to the same FM frequency as the FM transmitter attached to your iPod. The stereo will now stream audio from your iPod. b> Connect an iPod to a Car Stereo With a Cassette Adapter Plug the jack connector of the cassette adapter into the headphone output of your iPod. Insert the cassette into the car stereo. Turn on your iPod and select media to play. The stereo will now stream audio from your iPod.

My ipod model a 1285 keeps turning itself off why


iPod keeps turning off Plug your iPod in overnight to make sure it has charge. If after a full night of charging it has a low battery, there is probably something wrong with your charger cable. Replace the charger cable, especially if yours is old or has ever gotten significantly dirty. Reset your iPod. This basic reset does not remove any content from your iPod. Apple suggests this soft reset as the first fix for any software problems or if the screen freezes. Eject your iPod from your computer first. For an iPod with a click wheel, toggle the hold switch on and off several times, then hold down "Menu" and the center button at the same time until the Apple logo shows up on the screen. For touchscreen iPods, hold down the "Sleep" button at the top right until the Apple logo shows on the screen. Perform a factory restore on your iPod if the previous steps do not fix the problem. Plug it into your computer and open iTunes. Click on your iPod, then click "Restore." This wipes all content from your iPod and re-installs the operating system.
b> iPod Keeps Cutting Off b> Your iPod may cut off during a song or video, or during an application. Different causes lead to different types of cutting off just the sound may disappear, or you may suddenly experience cutting to a different screen. For example, if your iPod cuts off during a song, you may have merely hit the "Pause" button. With a blank white screen, you're encountering a software problem. Whatever the reason, follow some simple troubleshooting steps before contacting Apple's customer service.

Headphones Check that your headphones are connected correctly if the sound cuts out suddenly. If the 3.5-mm headphone jack comes out even a little bit, it can make the sound cut out in one or both headphones. Check for debris in the headphone jack itself, which can prevent a solid contact between the headphones and the iPod. b> Other Sound Issues b> Make sure the volume is up high enough. Also, especially if the iPod is in your pocket, make sure you haven't bumped the pause or sleep button. To ensure that audio plays constantly, engage the lock on your iPod. The music will always stop when you pull out the headphones, and once the headphones are back in, you have to push "Play" again. Cutting to White Screen b> A sudden white screen may appear when a generic software malfunction occurs, one in which t you don't get an error message. You must reset the iPod by turning it off, then on again. If this happens several times and you are using the same application each time, that app may be faulty. Try re-installing or re downloading the app. b> Cutting to Black Screen b> An iPod that cuts out to a black screen and won't turn back on is usually out of power. Usually you'll see a low battery warning, but if you're not looking at your iPod when the warning flashes, you might miss it. Once you connect your iPod to a functional power outlet, you can turn it on immediately, but it's best to wait a few minutes when the battery is very low. This gives the iPod a chance to regain power so it can function normally when you plug it in. Hope it helps.

White screen


A white screen is typically caused by a short in the logic board that is causing the Video Output to incorrectly display on your LCD.
You can replace the LCD in the unit, but more than likely this will only fix the problem for a short amount of time.
I have repaired 100's of iPods with this problem and replacing the LCD does not usually fix the issue.
I would suggest selling the unit AS IS for parts or repair on eBay or Craigslist.

Ipod 30G video audio output stopped working


There could be something going on with the contacts in the headset jack. If you can get the back of the Ipod off and plug a headset into it, check the two metal pieces on the jack to make sure that the black lines on the plug are in contact with the end of the headset. They can be realigned by simply bending them back into place.

Ipod wont play music / No sound


The clicker noise you hear is separate from the audio output functionality of the iPod. It sounds like an issue with the headphone jack possibly. Try a soft reset by pressing the menu and center buttons at the same time for 5-7 seconds.

If that does not work, then please consider the FREE Diagnostic Testing that we offer through our website. It will cost you virtually nothing to have us diagnose your issue.
