Question about Apple iPod touch 4th Generation MP3 Player

IPod touch 4 sound output problems

When press "play" sound comes through the headphones for 1 second. I have to unplug, and re-plug-in the audio jack, and then it plays ok. There's also static when I put it on a speaker-dock. I think there's something wrong with the charging port, like it needs to be cleaned? How do I do that?

Try using a very fine cloth to get into the headphones port and the charging port. If all else fails, you will probably have to take it into the Apple Store :D

SOURCE: ihome won't play ipod, even

Welcome to the wonderful world of the iHome frying the Ipod.
Your iHome, has most likely fried the mainboard on your ipod.
to check plug a usb into the ipod and connect to the computer.
if it comes up disconnect the usb and try a headphones in the jack.
if it doesn;t play sound its fried and you will need a new mainboard.
if it does play through the headphone jack, your lucky and keep it off the dock.

I have fixed at least 30 ipods taken out by ihome docks and other docks.
they are terrible for the ipod. Even Apple sells the docks on their website
that shows how much they care about the product.

If this helps leave a vote on fixya

SOURCE: Bad sound with static on left channel

it's usually the middle contact of the headphone jack module that loses it's elasticity and does no longer touch the headphone plug properly. if you're out of warranty, you can try to pull it back inward from the outside using a dentist tool or a strong sewing needle. if that fails you have to open the ipod touch and push the contact inward or replace the jack module.

SOURCE: How do I fix a bad connection with the headphone

Hi, this seems to happen on a lot of mp3 players , usually when you wiggle the headphone in the jack the sound cuts in and out, its the result of the headphone jack bending the metal contact inside the player or can be due to a build up of dirt/ grime in the socket.The problem generally gets worse as time goes on
if you have tried it with different headphones still get the problem and its still under warranty I would get on the apple site or down to you local apple centre and try and get a replacement.
Sometimes a spray of deoxit (plastic conductive lubricant /cleaner)
in the socket does the trick , but I would strongly reccomend trying to get a replacemnt

My ipod wont play sound aloud, it only works with the earphones, it used to work??


The speakers may be damaged, if you think water damage is the reason that the speakers are broken then follow these steps,
1. Unplug headphones. 2. Take you iPod to a dark place i.e room with light off. 3. Take a flash light and shine it in the headphone jack 4. Look inside the headphone jack. 5. If you see something red it is likely that your iPod got water in it and the speakers are shot.
Hope this helps, --Kaleb--

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.

IPod Touch pauses itself


This can be caused by the audio jack, if it doesn't sit tight anymore, the headphone becomes disconnected for small periods of time causing the iPod to detect the headphone as unplugged, hence it will pause. Try different headphones, especially nickel plated ones and make sure there's a tight fit. If that doesn't help the jack needs replacement. If you're out of warranty you can send it to a third party iPod Repair Service.

Garmin GPS - suddenly has no sound - it just cut out


1. Are you sure the volume setting is all the way up?

2. Are you sure the sound isn't muted?

3. Have you tried a pair of headphones in the headphone jack? If the headphones have sound, your internal speaker is bad. If you don't feel like sending it back for repair, you can purchase a FM transmitter like those used on IPODs and CDplayers and plug into your GPS's headphone jack and play the audio through your car's FM stereo.

4. If you don't hear sound from the headphone jack, most likely the audio output section is defective and you'll need to send it back to Garmin to be repaired.

Please let me know if I can be of further assistance to you.

Good luck!
