I have no sound on ipod during music playback and have done the 5 basic troubleshooting steps to no avail

Does the song play, or does it just keep skipping to the next song (does it show the song has length or not). If so it might be a dirty headphone jack.

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.

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!

Save music to computer. Once music is saved format mp3. Reinstall music back. Then, open mp3 and solder headphone jack back. U should have a working mp3 with working headphones.

Hello I have my problem is that my jailbroken ipodtouch(2nd genertation) will not play music.It wont play sound the songs play but the sound you cant hear.Can any one help me?

Did the songs you're trying to play work previously/is it all music on the ipod? I believe if you plug the ipod into your computer and hit the restore button in iTunes it wipes everything and resets the factory settings. Seeing as jailbreaking it technically voids the warranty, there's no "official" way of fixing it - but this has worked for me in the past. It could also be a problem with your headphones or the headphone jack. Before wiping it, I'd test it with some different headphones to see if that solves your problem. You can also try a reset on the iPod itself by pressing the sleep and home buttons at the same time for about 10 seconds. This doesn't erase anything, but it does reset the device. Since there are so many things it could be, you may want to try the less severe ones first, then back up your music and the like before doing the iTunes factory reset - then bring it in to Apple to let them know that you can't play music.

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.

Skips music in two seconds

Try pushing the headphone jack in further. A common problem seems to be that people don't push it in as far as it can go and this causes the skipping.
