Are you sure the earphones are plugged in properly? If they are, then there is probarly somthing wrong with the audio jack or the iPod.
If this information doesn't help you, I will be happy to arrange a live confrence call!
The headphone jack module needs to be replaced you can try to do it yourself if you're tech savy, There are specialized online tutorials with iPod Repair instructions that will guide you through the steps of taking it otherwise you'll have to send it to any third party iPod repair service and they'll do it for you.
try getting new head phones if the new head phones dont work then it is the jack and u need to get it replaced. If it is the new 2nd gen ipod (has speakers on the bottom) u aren't going to want to check the plug it is dangerous to the ipod to take off the rear or front plate because u can damage the screen or wires and u will have even more things to fix.
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.
i have the same problem. its not the headphones. its the itouch. its something to do with the jack-i think. because whenever i jiggle the plug eventually i can hear some of my music eventually. its a pain. and so how do i fix that ish?
