Prodigal_1 is absolutely correct with the diagnosis. However, do NOT order from rapidrepair if you plan on doing the work yourself. Search eBay real quick for "headphone jack ipod video" and pick one up for $3 instead of $40 +shipping. I bought a brand new front and back and new batteries to completely re-do my ipod and my wife's ipod for less than $50. (two brand new ipods pretty much :P) With RapidRepair.com I was looking at spending ~$170.
RapidRepair has good guides, though, on disassembly. There are other guides out there such as ifixit.com and the great google databse. Takes a steady hand, but you can do it.

Just so you know which type of iPod you need parts for, you have a 30 gb fifth generation iPod video. It sounds like your jack is faulty and not getting a good connection. A new jack from an online store is about $40. Just type in iPod parts in your search engine. Rapid Repair is at the top and they will do free diagnostics and they sell parts and have online tutorials showing how to very carefully replace these parts.

There is a static noise coming from my ipods speakers and earphones


Thank you for your question.

It sounds like the jack on your iPod is a bit dirty inside causing static. Here are some things to try, assuming that your tracks are all stereo and none of them are mono tracks.

Try this:

  1. Power the unit off and the speakers off it they have a power switch.
  2. Get some rubbing alcohol and a paper towel.
  3. Pour a cap full of alcohol on the paper towel and grab the plug on your speakers.
  4. Twist the towel around tightly to clean the plug.
  5. Repeat this process on the earphone plug.
  6. Now take the speaker plug and push it in and out of the speaker jack about 20 times.
  7. Whatever you do, DO NOT pour any alcohol into the jack socket on the iPod itself.

If the problem continues, test your earphones and speakers with another product.

If they work fine, the jack in your iPod needs to be rewired.

If they don't work, then you may want to take your iPod, the speakers and earphones to your local Radio Shack store and show the Sales Associate what the problem is.

You may need to buy a stereo-to-mono audio adapter -OR- new headphones and new speakers.

If you still have problems after all of this, it may be time for a new iPod.

My itouch earphone jack creates static in earphones.


sounds like the typical ipod and ipod touch common situation. It seems to be the dreaded headphone jack on the bottom or top of the device has gone belly up. You can either take it to your local apple store or look online and search your problem and see if anyone else has the same issues you have and see what can be done.You can send it to ipodsquad.com to get repairs or check your local apple store.

No sound


Reset the player - double check the sound settings in the menu
if these methods fail, run the recovery method mentioned in the user's manual
if the recovery even fails, then it is a hardware issue with the headphone jacks and the player will have to be replaced

Sound Only Comes Out Of The Right Earphone


If its less than 1 year old, have it replaced. Its a loose connection on the circuit board. SanDisk Technical Support 1-866-726-3475 Best of Luck.
