Question about Apple iPod classic MP3 Player

1 Answer

The volume is not loud enough on my i-pod classic

I set the i-pod to the maximum volume and it is not loud enough. At that voulume I can still hear background noise. Is there a way to override the maximum volume or is there some type of limiter to the sound? Other things such as my portable radio reach a much higher volume using the same earphones.

    Thank you for that. Although I have checked both of these things it does not make it any louder as the volume limiter was all the way up and the 'sound check' was not on. Any other ideas?

There is a volume limiter under "settings", check to be sure its turned all the way up (you actually have to click the center button to save). Also you will find "Sound Check" being turned on greatly reduces volume.

My BB9000 is not loud enough. I selected the profile "loud" , selected the "classic ring tone phone", set the volume to 10 and I can hardly hear the ring tone. Thanks, Victor

Did you put your own ring tone on there? If is not loud enough. I know this from previous experience. When you record one and drag into the mini sd card you have to do it very loud. You can use the recorder that comes with that phone and record one and then select it as the tone but make sure you get it close to the mike.

this should help you below. If you have set a password on the volume limit and forgot the password please let me know cause you will then have to remove the password or restore the device. This is only one step in trying to remove the volume limit it may work or it may not and you will have to use another method. But please tell me if this method works and if it doesnt i will instruct you on where to go from here. To set the maximum volume limit for iPod classic: 1 Choose Settings > Volume Limit. The volume control shows the current volume. 2 Use the Click Wheel to select the maximum volume limit. You can press Play to hear the currently selected song play while you select the maximum volume limit. 3 Press Play/Pause to set the maximum volume limit. A triangle on the volume bar indicates the maximum volume limit. 4 Press the Menu button to accept the maximum volume limit without requiring a combination to change it. Or, on the Enter Combination screen, set a combination to require that the combination be entered to change the maximum volume limit. If you need further assistance please feel free to follow up with a comment and i will be here to
assist you. If this assisted you please feel free to rate the comment. thanks and have a great day.

Check the speaker/s. If found OK; check and replace the damaged component/s at its audio output section circuit board. If needy, replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device; in the "Search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get gathered related posts.
