Most likely headphone jack is broken. option one is to take it to the apple store and have them repair it. option 2 is to go on e-bay and buy a replacement jack and try to do it yourself. best option is to sell it on ebay as broken/needs repair. Someone who knows how to fix them will buy it from you and you can use the money you get to buy a good used working iPod. There are always tons of nanos for sale on ebay.

My Ipod Nano only has sound in one ear. when you turn the headphone jack in the socket it picks up the other sounds ear for a second then disappears. I've tried different using headphones and the samething...

Within the jack, there is a very delicate balance. The same thing happened to the auxiliary jack in my car. Since it is broken, you'll need to either see if you're eligible for an Apple warranty replacement or repair, see if a local electronics place can fix it at a decent price, or spring for a replacement.

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.

If you wrap the headphone around your iPod, after a while, it may bend a pin in the headphone jack, causing no contact to be made, therefor one side of music. You can try to bend it back with a pin, or order a new ******** www.ifixitcom.

Jack on headphones broke off in my iTouch

You might be able to get it looked at under warranty if it's less than a year old.
Otherwise, have a look at this: You'll need some tools to do it, but they can be bought from the iFixIt site.
If it's jammed in there really badly you might need to replace the headphone jack itself, which may be part of the logic board. Could be a pretty expensive repair job if you choose to DIY. I'd definitely see if Apple will fix it either under warranty or for a fee. Much easier.
Anyway, iFixIt has all the parts for the iPod Touch here:
Good luck!

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.
