Question about Apple iPod touch
Several days ago I noticed that the jack no longer holds the plug in place the way it should. If I push the plug in far enough to lock, I get diminished sound and have to pull the plug out just a smitch (technical term?). At that point, it is very difficult to keep the plug in place. Any movement causes the plug to pull out.
The iPod is under warrantee, but the closest Apple store is two hours away so I would like to avoid the trip if possible.
It sounds like you have a worn out audio jack, it can be replaced by a tech savy user or friend with tech skills if you use an iPod repair guide, the parts are readily available on ebay.

First of all search how to open a ipod progress ..
1.While using a ipod opening tool there is a certain problem; that find a hole to put the tool then but as you can see its too well designed so you gonna have problem using anyway if you can open ipods back side you gonna need a needle to take earphone jack and its really hard to taking out the jack from ipod chase (because its too little and you need more tools to take it)
2.If you manage to take it out you have to widen it and by the way its not that much simple to widen in correct form if you dont widen enough it wont work and whole work is gonna be trash if you widen it too much probably you gonna broke it you even cant use warranty so widen it slowly
3.third and for me the hardest thing is replace part.because its too litlle that you cant even see the place .!
4.After you replace it while closing the backside use only one side to press then after you heard a sound like "click " press the other side
(For your information if you press them at the same time and if you make a wrong move like making one ofthe parts crack you cant close
but by pressing side by side you can manage to closing slowly and more accurate
good luck on repairing

Yes, unfortunately you can't really do anything about that at home.
you have to go to the Apple store and get it fixed..
