It sounds to me as though your sound jack has been damaged. Look inside where the plug goes though, there may be a small amount of lint in there. I would also recommend that if you cannot see any damage, you reset it by holding down both the menu and center button until you see an apple appear on the screen. After it loads play a song, if it still sounds scratchy, connect it to itunes and restore it by going to the summary page and clicking the restore/update button. After reloading your music listen to a track again. If the issue still remains, you have a hard ware issue and depending on how old it is you may be able to get it fixed by apple under your warranty. To find out, you'd need to call apple support at 1-800-APL-CARE (1-800-275-2273).

Internal speaker stopped working on my ipod 5th gen, headphones still work tho.... anyone got the solution??? cheers

Well, the internal speaker does not play sounds... It is not possible for the iPod's internal speaker to play music, as it is only capable of making three disctinct sounds:

the clicky noise

the alarm sound

the chirpy noise when you boot into diagnostic mode

You can get those sounds back by going into SETTINGS on the IPOD and turning the sounds back on.

    No sound from my Pure-Fi Express plus into my 4th gen Nan Ipod

    Hi, while your pure express plus you just purchased is not playing out any sound is because, the speaker that enable you to play the sound when you play music through the ipod is faulty and it needs to be replaced with another one for it to function properly again.

    After changing the speaker that is faulty with a new speaker, you can now start enjoying the music again through the internal speaker.

    Take care.

    Nano 8gb does not charge battery(3th generation)

    the ipod of the 4th generation does only charge in USB mode and the Harman & kardon speaker only supports I link charge mode(fire wire 1394) so i bought an awsome sounding machine wich does not charge my ipod nano.
    however i must say that i have a solution, when you put the USB cable in the back of the H&K, you can charge the nano with a charging device of an ipod.

    No sound

    Reset the player - double check the sound settings in the menu
    if these methods fail, run the recovery method mentioned in the user's manual
    if the recovery even fails, then it is a hardware issue with the headphone jacks and the player will have to be replaced
