    I have already tried several earphones. The audio works at low volume sometimes but eventualy quits. I suspect it is the internal I pod circuits.

Hi Humed, your best bet would be to determine whether or not it is the iPod that is malfunctioning or the headphones themselves.
To do this I would recommend plugging a separate set of headphones into your iPod that you know are functional.  If they work then obviously your iPod earphones are malfunctioning.  If the new headphones that you have checked are still not working when connected to the iPod then the problem is likely with the audio jack on the iPod.  In that case you should determine whether or not you have a warranty and send it in for repair at the place you purchased it or directly to Apple.
I wouldn't worry though it's likely that your iPod earphones are just getting a little old and the wear inside the white insulator have begun to fray, you could manually try cutting open the wire and reconnecting the wires but you may end up making it worse, and headphones are relatively cheap to come by.
Thanks for asking and I hope I helped.

The earphone jack connection produces sound in only one ear. Partially with drawing the jack produces sound in both ears. Clearly, the jack is not making a good connection once inside its 'port'.


Hi,
This is usually the result of faulty earphones. Try replacing the earphones you are using with the ipod and it should work normally.
Good Luck!

My itouch earphone jack creates static in earphones.


sounds like the typical ipod and ipod touch common situation. It seems to be the dreaded headphone jack on the bottom or top of the device has gone belly up. You can either take it to your local apple store or look online and search your problem and see if anyone else has the same issues you have and see what can be done.You can send it to ipodsquad.com to get repairs or check your local apple store.

The internal speakers on my ipod touch don't work


As far as I know, the sound quality coming out of the ipod is not so great to begin with. I have an iPod touch, and the speaker I have right now was only $12.59 and the sound quality is great. plus I have my headphones from UxSight. They are amazing. Here is the link: iPod speakers

Ipod nano 2ndG one headphone out


Sometimes if the plug of earphones are inserted half way, only one of the earphones play. Please try to remove and insert again and see to that it is fitted in properly and completely.

Cheers.
