Re: using my ipod in my car

Your adapter in the headphone jack is bad. if it plays well on headphones the ipod is fine. try getting a new adapter. not the power adapter but the one for the speakers.

Re: using my ipod in my car

Try the volume setting on your ipod. it may have to be adjusted. go to settings, volume and see where you are on the slider and adjust to the volume you want. ipods come factory set at a predetermined volume level.

Cable Connect iPod iPhone MP3 Phone Audio to Mazda Car Player

Does your car player have a auxillary jack (looks like headphone hole)

or does it just have a tape player?

if it has an auxilary plug then you need to plug the cable from your ipod into that and set the stereo to aux for source.

if the car has a tape player go to the store and ask for the cassette that plugs into your headphone jack. then you can put that tape into the tapeplayer and plug the other end in your headphone port on the ipod and listen away

Four weeks ago I bought an iPod Touch 32GB. After listening to my iPod on an external speaker I tried using the headphone and the sound is just too low. I thought my headphone was damaged but I tried it on...

Sounds like plugging the external speakers in has damage the spot were the headphones go in. If this is under warranty that bring it to apple store.

For some reason my ipod touch won't play when I plug it into my stereo. It is playing out of the ipod itself. How do I turn this off.

This is a very common problem, you may have to get a different jack that works with the headset jack thats on the iPod. iPhones and iPods have a weird style jack on the top that wont allow most headphone or 3.0mm to 3.0mm jacks to go fully inside the jack causing it so there is not connection with the jack itself in the iPod. You can check this by turning the volume up and down using the rocker buttons on the side while you are at the home screen with no music playing and see if it says speaker or headphones when your turn the volume up and down. Speaker means there is no jack connection, headphone means that there should be music playing through the stereo. Thats using the jack.
If your talking about an iHome or other direct plug in stereo specifically for the iPods and iPhones, make sure that the dock is the correct dock for the iPod, and make sure that it is pressed fully down onto the dock. If all that is correct there should be no problem. If the problem still is happening, it may be your stereo. =/ Goodluck! Hope this helps!

Ok I plug into radio and turn on shuffle but still nothing coming on the radio, we are getting music still from the radio stations, its the green little apple shuffle

If you are plugging this into the radio with a regular audio cable, (headphone jack out of iPod, to AUX jack on car radio) the car radio needs to be on auxillary. Depending on your car, you can change the mode from CD, to Radio, to Tape, and to Auxillary. If you have it on auxillary and it's still not working, you may try a different cable. Hope this helps!

Ipod touch music wont play, built in speaker works fine

Restart your ipod by holding the home and power button at the same time, this will restart it and should fix it.

Headphone Jack Stopped working

It's worth a shot, is there a pan control somewhere in the settings? These settings act as a cross fade between the right and left stereo signal. If its on all the way left or all the way right, you won't get sound out of one phone. Also have you tried to use a different pair of phones? The only other thing it could be is if there are internal volume/gain controls. My iPod has these. It limits the max volume I can get out of it. It may have been turned on some how. If it's not any of those, then i'm afraid you have a faulty headphone jack. It may be need to be sent in for warranty, or repair. If this is the case, you could in the mean time fanagle it a bit... Sometimes if you pull a phone out of the jack just a touch it creates a short in the jack which sends the single thru as mono. Hope that helps.

Itouch volume realy messed up! plz help!

and you are sure the volume is all the way up? If the headphone jack thinks there is something in there the ipod touch will only play through the headphones. you can try to blow out any dust in there with a can of air and that might solve your problem.

Static electricity

everything works but no volume comes out the dock or the head phone plug??

if it's the head phone plug you could have burnt something out in between well i guess that would be true either way

if it is the head phone plug there is a good likely hood you can get away with minor wallet skimming

if it's both then you got me and if it's the dock then just be happy it's not totally blown
