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

Can't hear anything from my speakers....

The headphone jack is defective - get a refund if you still can, or find out from jWin if it is still in warranty (doubtful). A replacement headphone jack is not an orderable part.

You need to get a new head phone jack installed. It should be free if it is still under warranty.

Sound only on left side. tried earbuds and head phones

Hey markallen407,

If you've tried several different pairs of headphones and have encountered the same problem with every pair, you could possibly be looking at a defective headphone jack. In some cases when headphones are unable to make a secure connection within the jack, they may only receive an audio signal through one of the two speakers.

Unfortunately, this means that you may want to seek repairs on your iPod at this time. If you are still covered under the manufacturer's warranty, I would strongly suggest contacting Apple first for more information or further assistance. Many manufacturers may be able to provide faster solutions than third-party service facilities for problems with their products, but remember that it may be necessary to ship your iPod out for repairs.

Additionally, please keep in mind that you may always bring your iPod to your local Best Buy™ store for service. Geek Squad® agents are able to provide support for most products we sell, and can even honor existing factory warranties for products that were purchased through other retailers.

Hope this helps you out.

Go Ahead. Use Us.

Ipod head phone jack no good

I agree with Solution 5. The copper pins in the jack that make the connection to your headphone plug are bent in such a way that they are springy and will make a good tight connection to the plug. When those copper connections get worn, they are not so springy and they bend inward causing you to lose audio on one side of your headphones unless you wiggle the plug and find that sweet spot that makes a connection. Then you have to hold the wire to keep pressure on it... it gets annoying.

You can open the case and there are slots in the headphone jack that you can get a hook scribe (like the dentists use) or safety pin to bent those copper connections back out. Don't bend them too far or they will break. You can also pick get a new part for $25 or a used part much cheaper. Once you iPod is open, it's a matter of a couple screws and a ribbon cable to replace the jack. Problem solved!

Audio only plays from left headphone

The contacts inside the headphone jack are made of a springy metal there is one for the left and one for the right speakers. This happened to my Blackberry and I took it apart and got inside the jack block and re-sprung the contacts. It worked for me... I used a dental pick.

Sound is warped

Likely what happened is, in your efforts to get the piece out of there, you loosened a solder point on the headphone jack, and it will need to be resoldered. If you don't feel comfortable doing this yourself, you can send it to a technician who can.
