Re: Audio

I had that problem when I first got my Creative Zen V Plus. It's just because of the EQ. I had mine set on Disco and once I changed it to like Pop or Rock, the problem went away. Try the other EQ settings, and if that doesn't work just turn off the EQ altogether.

Sir, i have a apple ipod classic 80 gb but recently i cannot hear at one side of the headphone may be the reason i hve dropped it so i need to know how much cost to fix it in ...

Usually if you can only hear sound from one side of the headphones then it is often due to a problem with the headphones rather than the iPod.
Try a different pair of headphones and see if the audio improves. Otherwise, I would recommend inRepair, based in india to get a quote on a repair.

Is it possible to back up just a few seconds when listening to a book on an ipod 2g? If so, how? When I push the back button, it starts clear back at the beginning of the chapter.


If you play audiobooks on the iPod like any other type of audio file, but audiobooks (again, bookmarkable files), give you an extra option: go to the iPod’s Settings menu and select Audiobooks; this lets you choose a different speed for the playback. You can choose Faster or Slower if you want to change the speed of a droll or hyper reader; this plays the file back at a different speed, without changing the voice. You’ll notice some distortion, but in most cases this is not a problem.
You can also make this change as you’re listening to an audiobook. After it starts playing, press the Select button three times. Run your finger around the scroll wheel clockwise to change the speed to Faster; scroll the other way to return to Normal, or to change to Slower.

Take care.

My ipod will play a song, but only the music will come through and not the voice

This is rather unusual as it appears that you are playing your music in 'karaoke' mode on your iPod (but you should still slightly hear the vocals).
Try setting another music equalizer mode such as 'POP' or 'ROCK'.

I cant hear my music

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

Sound sync problem with I touch.

it appears that your headphone jack may be defective.
or your headphones.

Try a different set of headphones first and if the problem persists, have the headphone jack replaced by an iPod Tech.

the only other thing that it could be is possible your ipod is too full. If you don;t leave some room on the memory for it to run freely it will start having some issues.

if this helps you please leave a vote in fixya
