So assuming that you have already tried different headphones or speakers and that you have also checked that the socket is free of lint etc., do this:

  1. Goto Settings>VolumeLimit and turn it all the way up
  2. Goto Settings>EQ and turn it off
  3. Goto Settings>SoundCheck and turn it off
If it still doesn't produce any sound then it is a connection problem with the headphones. I do repairs for this. Contact me

All the best

My ipod nano has songs but no sounds


Step 1:
Since entering the marketplace and revolutionizing the way people experienced personal audio, Apple's iPod has become the unquestioned leader in MP3 players. Available in several different models and versions including the original iPod, iPhone, iPod Nano and iPod Touch the iPod allows people to listen to any number of songs with just the click of the button. However, as is the case with numerous electronics, certain iPod users encounter issues with their device, particularly sound issues. These issues range from buzzing sounds through the headphones to low volume quality to no sound at all. Fortunately, there are ways to attempt to remedy these sound issues.

Volume and Song Selection Oftentimes, those iPod users listening to heavier music (such as rock or hip-hop) will encounter a buzzing noise when playing their device at maximum or near-maximum volume. Try lowering the volume a bit, as this will most likely remedy your buzzing issues. Also, try playing a different song from a different artist at the same volume to ensure sound quality is optimal across the board. Check the Headphones Before attempting to diagnose an iPod's sound issues, ensure the iPod itself (and not the headphones) are the culprit for these sound issues. Do so by disconnecting headphones from the iPod and playing them on another device, such as another iPod, a PC or laptop. If the quality is still not optimal, the headphones (not the iPod) are likely the reason for low sound quality. Also try connecting an iPod to an iPod listening dock. If the sound quality is optimal, but not so when connected to headphones, that would also indicate headphones as the cause of low sound quality. b> Reset the iPod Sometimes, simply resetting an electronic device such as an iPod, digital cable box or video game system will remedy the solution, as it gives the device a chance to reboot. Try resetting the iPod to remedy whatever sound problem you may be encountering, whether it's no sound or less-than-optimal sound. Not all iPods are reset the same way, so consult the user manual (either paper form or through Apple.com support) to learn how to reset a particular type of iPod. Adjust Sound Settings If sound quality is less than optimal, including too much bass, not enough bass, poor acoustics or any number of other issues, try altering an iPod's system settings to correct the issue. Do so by going to the "Settings" key on the main iPod menu, then going to "EQ." From there, test certain settings to see if they may correct the iPod's issue. EQ settings allow users to set their music to a certain type of genre (in terms of how the music is delivered), as well as lowering bass, increasing bass and altering acoustics. b> Make Sure Headphones Are Fully Connected As simple as it sounds, sometimes the reason iPods have no sound at all is because their headphones become somewhat detached from the device. Such is the case with physical activities such as exercising or doing yard work. If no sound comes through the iPod, make sure the headphones are plugged in all the way to ensure the lack of sound is not a simple oversight. Consult Apple Support Whatever the sound issue, if iPod users have tried everything possible to remedy the problem with no results, they can call Apple support or visit an Apple retailer to help further diagnose the issue. The issue could be a simple fix or might be so severe that purchasing a new iPod is the best course to travel.

I m using xp i don't have any sound card cd with my sound card i need do download sound card cd and soft ware ....from where shoud i get those??


The audio driver is specific to your sound card. You cannot use any audio driver.
You can download the audio driver from the sound card manufacturer's WEB site.
You did not provide me with details of the make and model of your sound card therefore I cannot give you the link where you can download the audio driver.

My laptop's realtek hd audio sound device is not working so what should i do?


If you're running Windows 7 or Windows Vista, click the Start button, clickControl Panel, click System and Security, and then, under System, click Device Manager. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
If you're running Windows XP, click Start, click Control Panel, double-click Administrative Tools, double-click Computer Management, in the left pan click Device Manager. If you're prompted for an administrator password or confirmation, type the password or provide confirmation.
Double-click Sound, video and game controllers to expand that category. If a sound card is listed, you have one installed. If no sound card is listed, check the information that came with your computer to see if there's supposed to be a sound card installed.
If there's a yellow question mark next to the name of the sound card in Device Manager, there might be a problem.
Right-click the name of the sound card, and then click Properties.
Click the General tab, and then look in the Device status box to identify problems with the sound card.
If there is a problem with the sound device, it will be stated, and you might need to update your driver for the sound card.
You can double left click on the device marked and click the "Drivers" tab and select "Update Driver Button" to see if this will update the driver.
If this was successful, then restart your computer.

Internal speaker stopped working on my ipod 5th gen, headphones still work tho.... anyone got the solution??? cheers


Well, the internal speaker does not play sounds... It is not possible for the iPod's internal speaker to play music, as it is only capable of making three disctinct sounds:

the clicky noise

the alarm sound

the chirpy noise when you boot into diagnostic mode


You can get those sounds back by going into SETTINGS on the IPOD and turning the sounds back on.

Sound Setting


Hello,

Starting from the main menu, select settings.
For sound select 'sounds' in the E10. There are 3 settings:
1. Custom EQ; default levels of all frequenties should be in the middle at o decibel, which means no stronger or weaker sound for all pitches from high to low.
2. SRS setting; 3 dimensional sound / surround sound effect, default setting is off / disabled.
3. Fade In: when enabled, volume will become bigger from the start of playing music. Default setting for Fade-In is disabled.

You can find a manual at iRiver Tech Support :
In the support page 'select a category' Manual and 'select a product' E10 and click GO on the right. Next select User manual of E10 and a list of several languages guides will show as a zip file.
