If it was bought new and the sound doesnt work, its most likely either a defect in firmware from the manufacturing, or the ipod internal audio jack or stereo was damaged while being shipped to the store. Its best to take it back to where you bought it to be replaced, before your return date ends. Or if you have a Apple warranty, you can contact them online or give them a call

SOURCE: headphones not playing in iPod

This is either cause by a damaged headphone socket in the iPod or a loose connection. The only way to solve it will involve opening the iPod case and inspecting the daughter board that the headphone socket is on.

SOURCE: My ipod doesnt only works out of one headphone.

HI,
I actually had the exact same problem with my ipod touch. It's actually not a problem with the headphones but with the headphone jack on the ipod. For a while i "solved" this problem by wrapping my headphone wires twice around my ipod [so it was tight and the sound could be heard, the same way u do it by pushing it with ur finger]. Well one day my ipod jack just fixed itself, I got lucky. But my advice to you is to send it into apple like my friend who had the same problem did, they sent him a new one [hopefully u have a warrenty!]
hope that helped!!..thank you!!..

Short of actually repairing it, you can pick up a mono to stereo adapter for a couple a bucks at Radio Shack...

there could be a hardware issue with the headphone jack module. may need to be swapped out. check apple's warranty first, if they can't help you it can be done by a tech savy user. there is an ipod repair guide if you want to do it yourself or have a friend help you.

SOURCE: ipod touch music wont play, built in speaker works fine

Restart your ipod by holding the home and power button at the same time, this will restart it and should fix it.

You should make sure the headphone Jack is fully inserted with a firm push. It sounds basic, but it's happened to me several times.

Headphones sound go in and out usually this happens when i drop ipod but i just bought these headphones i haven't dropped ipod since i bouught these headphones


Hello, I see you are haveing a problem with your headphones going out . I see you say that you have dropped your ipod in the past, if it may have landed on the headphone plug end it may have internally damaged the plug or either caused a contact to become loose. It sounds as if you may soon want to invest in another ipod, because it is going to cost almost as much as a new one to fix but if you can save your songs somewhere else I would advise you to.Thank you

Only Getting Sound Out Of One Ear In Headphones


go on eBay and buy a new audio jack.

I had the same issue. Gradually it became worse and worse (on the sound cutting out more frequently out of one ear or being really silent at best) and I replaced the audio jack by buying a new one on eBay. Or if you are not the do-it-your-selfer and you got money, bring it to an iPod store that preforms repairs. When you order it on ebay, if it is really cheap, it usually ships from China or something and it might take a couple weeks. But saves you some bucks!

Sound out of one speaker only


I think it's probably a damaged audio jack. If you're still in warranty, get it off to Apple. If not, you've got 3 choices;

1. Attempt to fix it yourself. I managed to get stereo again by opening the ipod up and inserting a staple in the bottom of the jack, to fit between the headphone and the ipod's audio input. This took some fiddling around, using tweezers, and will probably not last long if I take it out somewhere. I might attempt removing the audio jack and seeing if I can bend the metal connects for the right audio channel so they touch the headphone cable again. An alternative to this method would be to put some cardboard in the audio jack socket and adjusting it so that it brings the hardphones back into contact. Someone did this and posted the results on their blog, but I forgot the URL...

2. Buy a new audio jack and replace it yourself. There's an ipod repair wiki out there, and several of the replacement jack suppliers have detailed instructions. It's about 40 UK pounds for the replacement though....

3. Get someone to repair it. Expensive, about 60 quid, but perhaps worth it if you're scared of further damaging your precious beast.


Note though that there have also been issues with software updates and audio output, search the apple discussion boards for more details...
