Question about Apple Ipod Nano Second Gen. Green (4 GB) MA487LLA MP3 Player

1 Answer

I can't hear my songs

When I turn on the Ipod, the volume is on but I can't hear the songs. I know there is nothing wrong with my headphones, because I have the 'clicker' sound set, and I can hear that when I scroll around. When I select a song to play, the time isn't even going, and 10 seconds later it just automatically goes to the next song, (which also doesn't play) and then when I pressed next, the ipod starting working on its own and going to next song after the next, and so on so on, until it went through every song in the list. What is going on here? Please?

Ipod turns on and works - cant hear song playing

Check the volume using the buttons on it and also in your settings/volume limit. If that doesn't work, resync it with iTunes and see if there is a parental control in place preventing music to be played.

Dont know how to skip song using headphone switch

okay if you notice, the headphone switch should have a + for increasing volume and a "-" for decreasing volume, in the middle is this groove part, which can be clicked aswell. Click the middle to play/pause. And double click it twice really fast to skip to the next song! Enjoy

I put the ear plugs in and nothing happens.. not

To get the basics out of the way, is the volume turned up and not muted at all... if it's turned up then try another pair of headphones that you know work in something else or test these headphones in something else...( cd player, radio etc.) use a pair that you know work to retest your mp3. plug them in, turn it on and play a song the gently wiggle the end plugged into the player back and forth. If you hear a crackling or snippets of song, then it's probably the jack inside the player....try these things and get back.
PS. post the make and model of your player, it helps with problem identification

Cant hear songs

It sounds like your headphone/hold cable is faulty. Try plugging it into a sound device with a docking bay. If no sound comes out of there either then it's a faulty logic board.

Volume code

As far as I know, there is no unlock for the volume. If you go into settings there is a volume limit. If you go to it just scroll up to the maximum and press the center button. That's maximum volume set. Then play a song and scroll the volume all the way up. If you're still not getting any sound then your headphone cable might be broken. Try the iPod on some sort of docking bay that produces sound. If it works on there then you definitely have a faulty headphone/hold cable. If it doesn't work on the docking bay, then you have a faulty logic board.
