Question about Apple iPod nano
Okay I put my earbuds into my ipod touch and when i play a song the sound only comes out of one earbud. I've tried different earbuds but I still have the same problem. Now I don't know what to do I have an IPod Nano and the same thing happened to me. It is definately not the earbuds. It is something wrong with the connection. I got on Apple's website and it is not covered under warranty, so they are saying it will cost at least $75 to have this fixed and from what I have heard this is a fairly common problem. I am not too happy about having to pay that much to have it fixed when it was hardly ever used so it is practically new.
It looks like in both cases you have an audio jack issue, both can be replaced by a tech savy user or friend if you use an iPod repair guide, the parts are readily availabe on ebay.

For the iPod nano you can replace the headphone jack your self for under thirty dollars. Even cheaper if you get the basic tool kit for it. :)
Step 1 Gather the needed tools. Copy an paste the URL below in your Browser window to view the needed items and purchase them if you wish. :)
Step 2 You need to remove the bottom bezel 1st. Take a flat head or safe open case tool and slide it in the crack of the bottom. Be careful not to pry to hard or you will break the bezel where the dock port hole is. This bottom piece is held on with mild adhesive.
Step 3 Once the bottom panel is removed, take your + driver and remove the 2 visible screws.
Step 4 There is one other screw that is hidden under the headphone jack. You will not be able to remove the bottom metal dock bezel until this hidden screw is removed. Take the flathead and pull the headphone jack out very slowly & carefully.
Once you have slid the new headphone jack into place just go backwards to reassemble.
The actual part is only one dollar! :) Here is the URL to view the part and decide if you wish to go that route instead of apples so called great rout of Charging a lot of money for something so small and simple.
