Question about Apple iPod MA446LL/A MP3 Player

1 Answer

Sound from Ipod no longer functioning correctly (sound jack?)

I've bought my Ipod 5g when it first came about which I believe was 3 years ago. I've invested in an expensive case which has paid off, and now I have my first and major problem I've had yet.

Any type of headphone that plugs into my ipod whether is be my ear canals or stereo headset only one ear will work. If I push the jack into the Ipod and twist it a little some of them may work but once I release the pressure it goes back to one ear sound only.

I've called my local Apple store and they want 120 dollars for a repair since my 2 year warranty has ran out a year ago. Is there any cheaper alternatives to fixing my Ipod?

My 3 year old, 30 GB, applie iPod is having issues regarding the jack. When I plug in my earphones or car jack the sound barely comes through and then goes away all together. I tried restoring it last...


Just so you know which type of iPod you need parts for, you have a 30 gb fifth generation iPod video. It sounds like your jack is faulty and not getting a good connection. A new jack from an online store is about $40. Just type in iPod parts in your search engine. Rapid Repair is at the top and they will do free diagnostics and they sell parts and have online tutorials showing how to very carefully replace these parts.

Haveing trouble hearing sound when I have my IPod connected


You need a AI Net cable or Speed Cable... It plugs into the back of the radio (looks like a circle with holes), and the other end can have a "Y" plug (headphone jack and iPod flat jack). The headphone jack for sound, the flat jack to charge he iPod while listening. I just bought mine on Crutchfield.com for $29.99. With the discount code: 3A156 you can get standard shipping free. The item # is: 127ICALPA and it's named "PAC iPod Adapter for Alpine".

I have an IMODE IP215 that has lost sound. Any suggestions


Hi,

i am in Colombia, and year ago i bought in USA at Circuitcity (Miami) an Imode Ip 215 Clock Radio with IPOD dock station for a nephew gift. It functions several months without any problem but suddenly it does not sound anymore. A technician examination determined that the problem was not the volume control as i though but the CD8227CP Integrated . The Headphone jack always worked fine in spite of that problem, though the volume was fixed..
Idon't know if this common problem of the Imode devices mut be due to a defective or bad quality sound piece

I hope this help you to determine thereal problem.

No sound no nothing !


make sure :
1- the the speakers are connected to the sub woofer correctly
2- the sound driver is installed on your computer ( you can check that from Device Manager )
3- that you connected the sub woofer jack to the correct jack of your computer
4- the volume parameter is set to highest in your computer

if nothing works out then i suggest connecting the speakers to another device ( like ipod or mp3 player )

if either this won't work then the speakers are obviously corrupted :)
