Re: ipod classic works but no sound
This is common among the 30gb Video iPods. If you play your iPod on a Dock, such as a iHome or other speaker device, for some reason, they like to take the Mainboard out. Normally, if it's a headphone jack, the problem will start with sound only playing on one side of the Headphones.
As a start, you can replace the headphone jack and see if it corrects your problem. If not, you will need to replace the mainboard in your iPod.

The iPod's shuffle feature lets you randomize playback of albums, songs or even your entire music library. You may also find this feature useful if you want to listen to forgotten tracks in your library or discover songs you haven't listened to yet. Disabling the shuffle feature will return playback of a song list to its standard consecutive order. You can enable and disable the shuffle feature at any time.
Navigate to the main menu. Select "Settings." Scroll to the "Shuffle" option. Select "Songs" or "Albums." If you select "Songs," the iPod Classic will shuffle the songs on whatever song list you listen to. If you select "Albums," the iPod Classic will play all songs of an album you select in order and then randomly select another album. Navigate to the playlist or album to which you want to listen. Play a song to initiate the shuffle. b> iPod Nano and iPod Touch Tap the "Songs" icon on your nano home screen. If you are using an iPod Touch, open the "iPod" application. Navigate to the song list, playlist or album you want to play. Tap the "Shuffle" icon at the top of the list to activate the feature.
Try holding down the menu/center button for at least 10-15 seconds, if that does not reset it try the center button and play/pause combo for the same time period (I used to have the same model as you, one of these 2 combos usually worked).
You can also try connecting your ipod to another computer with iTunes on it to see if its a software or hardware problem with your iPod. Or you can uninstall/reinstall iTunes and see what happens after a fresh install
and yea you can let the battery run out overnight if you want, but if you do get to fix it I'd say back up your music on the iPod through a program like iDump or something in the meantime
Sounds like the backlight of your LCD screen is broken. You can try to replace the LCD screen yourself, the part is available on any auction website. There is an iPod classic Repair service that can fix it for you. There is an iPod classic repair guide that can show you how to do the repair yourself.
That is most likely because they are not in the right format for the ipod to play. For the songs, right click on them and click on convert to mp3. Then transfer the mp3 song on there and it should work then. For the videos, you will have to download a free converter for them and let them be converted that way. It should work normally after that.
1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
2. Press and hold the Menu and Select buttons
until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 10 seconds. You may need to
repeat this step.
If you are having difficulty resetting your iPod, set
it on a flat surface. Make sure the finger pressing the Select button
is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you
are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel, and
not near the center.
If the above steps did not work, try connecting
iPod to a power adapter and plug the power adapter into an electrical
outlet, or connect iPod to your computer. Make sure the computer is
turned on and isn't set to go to sleep.
