Distorted sound on blue iPod 8GB nano

I just noticed an hour or so ago that when I plug in the headphones to my iPod, the sound is all distorted. It kind of sounds in both ears what it would sound like in one. It's very fuzzy and far away sounding.

I thought that maybe it was my headphones, so I tried both my skullcandy ones and the standard iPod ones. The sound still sounds bad. However, when I plug it into my charging dock, it sounds fine. So I think that it has something to do with the headphone jack... Can anyone help me, please?

I cant get any sound when i plug in the 8GB iTouch


Chances are it's the docking module... try pulling the ipod forward and see if you get some sound.

One can slip something in behind the ipod to prop it so it will give sound sometimes but overtime the problem gets worse in my experience.

There's the Auxillary input as well in the back... i.e. running an adapter from the headphone jack to the back. For an Ipod Classic one can leave it in the docking station re-charging - for the nano, with the headphone jack on the bottom it can't be placed in the docking station (though can be - recharged when not plugged in)

Don't forget to switch the selection to Auxiliary rather than Ipod

That being said, in terms of sound quality, the quality is much better (highs are higher) when plugged into the docking station compared to the Auxiliary input

My ipod touch plays the music, but the lyrics are distorted. Tried different earphones, but it's still the same. If I move the plug a bit, it sometimes clears up.


Sounds like a bad headphone jack. Contact Apple at 1-800-275-2273 (1-800-APL-CARE) if it's under warranty. If not, find an iPod repair company to see if they can re-solder the headphone jack.

Computer doesn't notice that my ipod nano 8GB is plugged in.


It was not a recall but apple has promised to replace any Nano that has been confirmed to be defective. It seems to me you should call apple or go to the apple store and have them replace it for you.

Ipod nano


have you checked the headphones on another device to see if they are broken cause if they are shorting it can drain your battery, secondly turn off that "clicker" that is used when you use the touch wheel. in the settings menu, and while you are there also look into the standby features and back light "lit" time. if this all fails restore the fact. setting. i am sure however you already tried to return it on warranty??!!
