Question about Apple iPod MA446LL/A MP3 Player

1 Answer

Help!!! I dropped my Ipod twice and ever since it has been only projecting sound through on ear piece. I have tried many different headphones, but that seems to not be the problem. I have a docking station I hook it to, through the plug in at the bottom of the Ipod itself and the sound comes through both speakers, but when I plug my Ipod (throught the head phone jack) into my surround sound theater chair it only projects through the left speaker, same as the headphones. What is wrong with my Ipod? What should I do to make it work again? Is it worth fixing it or should I just buy an Ipod touch? Please Help.

Can't get music sound thru ear bugs.

Turn the iPod off, then on again. Be sure the volume is turned up. Try a different set of earphones. Try your headphones with a different iPod.All that will let you isolate if the problem is the device or the iPhones. If the device, take it to Genus Bar at your Apple Store or a local Apple repair shop. If it's the headphones, it's normlly a break in the cord by the plug. Repair or replace.

I had purchased an Ipod nano and when I try to plug in the ear phones I can still hear it coming from the nano. And if I turn around the plug for the earbuds the sound goes in and out.

Make sure the headphones are fully inserted. If the problem persists try a different set of headphones. If the problem is there with the second set then you have a defective jack and should return the nano.

You should make sure the headphone Jack is fully inserted with a firm push. It sounds basic, but it's happened to me several times.

My Ipod Nano only has sound in one ear. when you turn the headphone jack in the socket it picks up the other sounds ear for a second then disappears. I've tried different using headphones and the samething...

Within the jack, there is a very delicate balance. The same thing happened to the auxiliary jack in my car. Since it is broken, you'll need to either see if you're eligible for an Apple warranty replacement or repair, see if a local electronics place can fix it at a decent price, or spring for a replacement.

Ipod (30 G) earbud jack only plays out of one ear

Does this still happen with a different pair of headphones? If not, get another pair. If the same behaviour with any headphones you will need to contact Apple if still in warranty to get it repaired.

My bet is with the headphones not the IPOD.

Good Luck

Only Getting Sound Out Of One Ear In Headphones

go on eBay and buy a new audio jack.

I had the same issue. Gradually it became worse and worse (on the sound cutting out more frequently out of one ear or being really silent at best) and I replaced the audio jack by buying a new one on eBay. Or if you are not the do-it-your-selfer and you got money, bring it to an iPod store that preforms repairs. When you order it on ebay, if it is really cheap, it usually ships from China or something and it might take a couple weeks. But saves you some bucks!

Check settings and look for maximum volume, this might have been changed.
otherwise your plug in your ipod is broken or both your headphones and docking station are broken.
