The earphones are not the problem.

  1. Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.)
  2. Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step.
If that does not work, then you will have to go to your closest apple store to get it fixed.

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.

Volume control does not change the volume when using earphones


Most often, the ear phone might be the problem.try getting a new ear phone preferable, one from another manufacturer,if it does the same way, the problem will be from the earphone port.

Apple Ipod 4th Generation is only playing music through left ear jack. I'm confident it is a earphone/jack replacement issue. The problem occured when someone yanked my ipod from me and the ear bud cord...

Ipod earphones work sometimes or not at all?


Hi Humed, your best bet would be to determine whether or not it is the iPod that is malfunctioning or the headphones themselves.
To do this I would recommend plugging a separate set of headphones into your iPod that you know are functional.  If they work then obviously your iPod earphones are malfunctioning.  If the new headphones that you have checked are still not working when connected to the iPod then the problem is likely with the audio jack on the iPod.  In that case you should determine whether or not you have a warranty and send it in for repair at the place you purchased it or directly to Apple.
I wouldn't worry though it's likely that your iPod earphones are just getting a little old and the wear inside the white insulator have begun to fray, you could manually try cutting open the wire and reconnecting the wires but you may end up making it worse, and headphones are relatively cheap to come by.
Thanks for asking and I hope I helped.

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

Ipod doing wierd thingg


First off - Is there any warranty warranty left? Otherwise what most likely happened is the headphone jack connector broke a terminal. If it is a model with a screen, the headphone jack is a separate piece off the motherboard. It's a cheap part off of ebay, just find someone with nimble hands to reconnect the ribbon cable inside.
