Try to put pressure on the ribbon cable connector of the audio jack module. if it helps when you do it manually you can put a distance piece there that maintains the pressure. if it doesn't work and you are sure that your jack is intact, you need a new logic board. the part is on ebay and there is a ipod repair guide if you want it yourself or have a tech savy friend help you.

The diagnostic mode won't check the audio, only the headphone jack.
I suspect that the sound on your ipods motherboard went out. It happens!
Have you been using the ipod on a dock, a speaker dock, any dock?
If so the dock may have damaged the motherboard and too the sound out.
Or the sound on the board just went out. You can fix the boards without special equipment and
skill. If that has occurred, which if you replaced the headphone jack with a new one, has occurred
you are looking at replacing the motherboard in your ipod.
You can find a new motherboard on ebay for about 40.00 or so.

Good Luck

Music only comes from the left headphone


This is a common problem with the headphone jack - if you google "ipod 30Gb headphone jack repair" there are both places that will replace the jack and places that will sell you the new "ribbon" connector and hold switch and jack (it's all one unit). If you're comfortable opening the iPod and have a TINY (#000) jeweler's philips head screwdriver you can replace the unit with no soldering. It helps if you have patience and small fingers and good light; you'll have to fasten the ribbon connector carefully. I paid under $10 for my last part but I've seen the same part for $30+, so caveat emptor. For that price they should put it in for you...

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.

Thanks for the Post Well if you have any questions you can give us a Free Call anytime 661-588-4401 it is listed on FIXYA.com also for iPOD REPAIRZ what happened was that a lot of people don't no when you charge your iPOD up with the Car charger it draws way too much amps, and also the iHOME does the same. For both those models we have seen a lot of Model ipods Destroyed because of that. The high pitch sound also means you might need a New HeadPhone Jack soon. Tell you what give us a Call and we will lead you in the right direction. Thanks a Million (iPOD REPAIRZ)
