Sound problem and music stopping

I am having to turn my volume to 30 just to hear any quality music at all. The "stereo" for the ear plug doesn't seem to work either. Also, sometimes in the middle of a song my player will stop. Any help would be greatful. thanks,

Is this for all music tracks ? I think it could be a corrupt file. Why dont you try this with any other track ?

Wont play music

Even though you charged it all night, the battery may not, in fact, have charged. You may need to replace the battery, especially if it is a few years old

How do I connect my iPod to a stereo Kenwood

<p>The superior audio quality thanks to the Kenwood stereo system is as good as any on the market. However, many of Kenwood audio receivers contain no iPod connection port. Even the business hubs of high-end entertainment that interface with the computer via USB cannot provide connectivity to an iPod. But that does not mean you cannot high-quality audio through your stereo Kenwood iPod. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Put your Kenwood stereo. Connect devices with the stereo turned on may lead to spikes in volume that can damage the speakers and even your ears. Turn up the stereo, so you can use the set of connectors on the back to see. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Connect the end of 3.5 mm 3.5 mm to RCA cable for the headset from your iPod. If you do not have a cable 3.5mm to RCA, you can buy one of the sound equipment stores or electronics stores like Radio Shack. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Connect the RCA end to your cable 3.5mm to RCA in an available port on the back of your Kenwood stereo. Put your Kenwood stereo, so you can access the buttons on the front. Turn the sound and select the channel of your iPod is connected. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Test the connection. Lower the volume on the Kenwood stereo and start a track playing on your iPod that you can recognize. Turn your volume until you play the iPod through the stereo to listen. If you hear no sound, check the "Monitor CD2/TAPE2" is active, and "Mute" is off <br />

I have white a1136 video 30 gig i pod and i can only hear out of one side of ear plug. tried ear plug in other music players and works in all but my i pod. has to be something wrongwith I pod, pkease help

Your assessment seems to be correct. The problem is most likely in the iPod.

The stereo headphone connector (called a "jack") may have a broken connection, most likely on the Printed Circuit Board (PCB) inside the iPod. You may try carefully wiggling the plug in the jack and see if the sound comes on and off. Do it with the volume low so you don't damage the amplifier in the iPod.

I have opened them up before. It can be done, but is not particularly easy, and must be done carefully.

If you are technically inclined, or know someone who is, open the iPod and examine the jack connections to the PCB. If there is a break, it can be repaired by soldering a wire across the trace on the board.

If you're not able to do this and don't know anyone who can, it will probably have to be professionally repaired if the warranty has expired.

Good luck!

Cannot listen to any sound without the ear piece

You can play it through the TV as if it was video, using the Battery Dock. Similarly, just put it through my stereo by connecting the audio cables to the AUX input (leave the Video unattached). Just remember the volume levels on the 405 need to be upped when playing through the TV and stereo and you'll probably have to turn the TV and stereo up to a lot louder than norma;when watching TV or playing a CD, so remeber to turn them down before switching back, otherwise the neighbours (or speakers) may blow.

Ringing sound when playing music

Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard.
