How do I fix a bad connection with the headphone jack on my ipod touch? When plugged in, the music is static-y. It is definitely the headphone jack that is the problem.

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

Hello: I have had my ipod touch for a long time now no problem until now.....i have ipod touch 3G 32gb and whenever i listen to music....and i put my headphones in the jack. If i move the ipod itself like...


smoething like that happened to me. do you wrap your headphones around the Ipod when you're not using it? The connections inside the headset can break if you do that, and if its not the headset, then it is likely that something in the general vincinity of the headphone jack is loose.

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.


Hello.
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!

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.

It sounds like it's definitely a problem with your iPod. . . Sometimes the connectors on the inside of the unit can go bad. I've not heard now this can be fixed though. I would try calling apple and seeing it the unit is still under warranty.

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

Jack on headphones broke off in my iTouch


You might be able to get it looked at under warranty if it's less than a year old.
Otherwise, have a look at this:http://www.ifixit.com/Guide/First-Look/iPod/iPod-Touch You'll need some tools to do it, but they can be bought from the iFixIt site.
If it's jammed in there really badly you might need to replace the headphone jack itself, which may be part of the logic board. Could be a pretty expensive repair job if you choose to DIY. I'd definitely see if Apple will fix it either under warranty or for a fee. Much easier.
Anyway, iFixIt has all the parts for the iPod Touch here: http://www.ifixit.com/Products/Touch-1st-Gen/132
Good luck!
