SOURCE: How do I fix a bad connection with the headphone

Hi, this seems to happen on a lot of mp3 players , usually when you wiggle the headphone in the jack the sound cuts in and out, its the result of the headphone jack bending the metal contact inside the player or can be due to a build up of dirt/ grime in the socket.The problem generally gets worse as time goes on
if you have tried it with different headphones still get the problem and its still under warranty I would get on the apple site or down to you local apple centre and try and get a replacement.
Sometimes a spray of deoxit (plastic conductive lubricant /cleaner)
in the socket does the trick , but I would strongly reccomend trying to get a replacemnt

The ipod touch HPJ is not too hard to repair. A good source for the part would be ebay. But There is a stepby step guide toothat explains how to repair the jack as opposed to replacing it : iPod touch repair. There are also third party iPod repair companies that do it for you.

SOURCE: ipod touch 8 gig 1st generation...no sound from

Yep, you are! If it's under warranty (12 months), take it to your nearest Authorised Apple Service Centre and they will get it exchanged in a couple of days
No warranty? Google "iPod repairs" in your country and you should be able to find someone who can fix it. The usually have a self diagnosis on line so will get an idea of the cost before you begin. Don't try it yourself!

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

It sounds like you have a headphone jack failure. Have you had any difficulty inserting the headset? Was there any event that happened when headphones were in and working.

I have a pair of tp-1a headphones. The headphone jack broke off. What do I do to replace it.


If you want to fix it yourself go to partsexpress.com and buy a new headphone plug. You can go to radio shack, but their headphone plug is very large but you won't need to solder anything. Cut the wires and strip off the plastic. You will see very small wires coated in red and blue if I remember correctly. You will need to separate all little wires so the colors are together. The color coatings need to be removed. Put them in the flame of a lighter for just a quick second. The coating will burn off. Scratch off the excess with your fingernail.

You will need to plug the new headphone plug into an ipod and touch the wires to the connectors to figure out which wires are for the left and the right speakers.

Solder the wires to the new headphone jack. You will find the partsexpress jacks are much better than the original.

If you use the radio shack plug you may want to put a little hot glue with a glue gun around the wires before you close it put or the wires will pull out easily. The parts express plug, link below, has a tight grip on the wires and there is no need for glue.

When i plug my headphone in my ipod 5 genration it plays out loud


Try getting a can of compressed air to blow out the headphone jack sometimes dirt gets in there. Don't blow with just your mouth. If this works try keeping headphone jack covered so dirt doesn't get in there. Switcheasy makes doc and headphone port covers they come with their cases.

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!

No sound from headphones


The only thing that I know when I have been presented with this problem in the past is that your headphone jack is shot. There is no way to fix this. You now have a portable hard drive and should invest in either a new ipod or other type of mp3 player.

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.

If this helps leave a vote on fixya

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.
