Question about Apple iPod touch 4th Generation MP3 Player
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

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.

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
