Step 1: Since entering the marketplace and revolutionizing the way people experienced personal audio, Apple's iPod has become the unquestioned leader in MP3 players. Available in several different models and versions including the original iPod, iPhone, iPod Nano and iPod Touch the iPod allows people to listen to any number of songs with just the click of the button. However, as is the case with numerous electronics, certain iPod users encounter issues with their device, particularly sound issues. These issues range from buzzing sounds through the headphones to low volume quality to no sound at all. Fortunately, there are ways to attempt to remedy these sound issues.
Volume and Song Selection Oftentimes, those iPod users listening to heavier music (such as rock or hip-hop) will encounter a buzzing noise when playing their device at maximum or near-maximum volume. Try lowering the volume a bit, as this will most likely remedy your buzzing issues. Also, try playing a different song from a different artist at the same volume to ensure sound quality is optimal across the board. Check the Headphones Before attempting to diagnose an iPod's sound issues, ensure the iPod itself (and not the headphones) are the culprit for these sound issues. Do so by disconnecting headphones from the iPod and playing them on another device, such as another iPod, a PC or laptop. If the quality is still not optimal, the headphones (not the iPod) are likely the reason for low sound quality. Also try connecting an iPod to an iPod listening dock. If the sound quality is optimal, but not so when connected to headphones, that would also indicate headphones as the cause of low sound quality. b> Reset the iPod Sometimes, simply resetting an electronic device such as an iPod, digital cable box or video game system will remedy the solution, as it gives the device a chance to reboot. Try resetting the iPod to remedy whatever sound problem you may be encountering, whether it's no sound or less-than-optimal sound. Not all iPods are reset the same way, so consult the user manual (either paper form or through Apple.com support) to learn how to reset a particular type of iPod. Adjust Sound Settings If sound quality is less than optimal, including too much bass, not enough bass, poor acoustics or any number of other issues, try altering an iPod's system settings to correct the issue. Do so by going to the "Settings" key on the main iPod menu, then going to "EQ." From there, test certain settings to see if they may correct the iPod's issue. EQ settings allow users to set their music to a certain type of genre (in terms of how the music is delivered), as well as lowering bass, increasing bass and altering acoustics. b> Make Sure Headphones Are Fully Connected As simple as it sounds, sometimes the reason iPods have no sound at all is because their headphones become somewhat detached from the device. Such is the case with physical activities such as exercising or doing yard work. If no sound comes through the iPod, make sure the headphones are plugged in all the way to ensure the lack of sound is not a simple oversight. Consult Apple Support Whatever the sound issue, if iPod users have tried everything possible to remedy the problem with no results, they can call Apple support or visit an Apple retailer to help further diagnose the issue. The issue could be a simple fix or might be so severe that purchasing a new iPod is the best course to travel.
Hi Katherine Try this solution to your problem...
Turn on Ipod, on the left hand side there is a volume control switch. While you are on a song, hold the top of the volume control switch to increase the volume. If that does not work then go to "Settings". then "music" and make sure your "Volume Limit" is set to "Off", if it is not then touch "Volume Limit" and set it to "Off" Please do not forget to rate me Bud

These are the most common methods for recovering Sandisk's Sansa Mp3 Players. I have been almost universally successful in recovering Sansa players using one or a combination of these methods. These methods do not work if you are having synchronization or music format issues - they are for recovering a player that will not power up, freezes, flashes, is not recognized by the computer, and a host of other issues.
Reset the Sansa Player first.On most models, restart is done by holding the power button in for 15 seconds or longer.Check your specific manual to be sure. The manuals are available from the Sansa website if they have been misplaced. Download the Sansa Recovery Tool from the Sansa website. Format - Erases Everything: Connect your Sansa player to the computer and open Windows Media Player. Click on the Sync tab. Pull down the drop down menu underneath the Sync tab by moving your cursor over the Sync tab and left clicking on the little black arrow underneath the Sync tab. Highlight "Sansa 1GB" (wording may vary slightly), and then select "Format." - this should erase everything. Firmware Upgrade- Erases Everything: Get the latest firmware upgrade from Sansa - it updates the firmware and erases every song in the player all at once. Note: this method doesn't work if already have the latest firmware. Go to this website and click "Firmware Updater" to find out: http://www.sandisk.com/DriverDownload/driverList.asp If these fail, then: Try this: disconnect the player from the computer, turn it off, hold in the volume + button, and reconnect the player to the computer while holding the volume + button in. Keep holding the volume + button for an additional 5-50 seconds. Windows should eventually go into recovery mode and revive the player- it will pop up a window that says Found New Hardware Wizard. If you get the problem where MTP Device keeps popping up continuously, uninstall the “MTP Device” by going to Start à Control Panel àSystem à Hardware à Device Manager (you computer may vary slightly, depending on Windows Version). You may have to restart your computer after each of these methods to get them to work properly. Disconnect your Sansa player BEFORE shutting down your computer. -Tha Mp3 Doctor

try going to Menu->Settings->Sound. Go to Audio Output and try switching between Analog Line Out and SPDIF. I too had this problem and it scared me. But after playing around with the settings, I found this solution. All the best
