Earphone jack for ipod 30GB onlu works sometimes...

My ipod earphone jack will not work even after using a number of different headsets..the scarey thing about it, is that i can see an imprint at the top of the screen when i insert the headphone into the ipod with abit of force. The clicker still works, and like i said above my ipod plays music sometimes.

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.

The earphone jack connection produces sound in only one ear. Partially with drawing the jack produces sound in both ears. Clearly, the jack is not making a good connection once inside its 'port'.


Hi,
This is usually the result of faulty earphones. Try replacing the earphones you are using with the ipod and it should work normally.
Good Luck!

Hi i have a 1st gen 16gb ipod touch. When i insert the earphones into the socket i either get no sound, very poor quality sound, or ok quality sound which disapears when i move. i think this is because of...


Some devices such as yours have a 4 conductor jack, (used for earphones and microphone) and most earphones have a 3 conductor plug. They are not compatible. This would be my first guess. Second is earphones and earbuds get tossed around, put into pockets, etc. The cords can get damaged, and not be visible from the outside as the wires inside are very delicate. I would try a set that works in a different device.

Earphones on my turtle beach x1's not working


Try using the headset to listen to your iPod or MP3 player. Plug the USB plug into your Xbox or PC USB port, then plug the X1 green plug into the Headphones jack on your iPod or MP3 player. Make sure the master volume is up on the X1 (inline volume control box). Play a tune on the MP3 player. Do you hear the music? If yes, the X1 is fine. If no, you should contact Turtle Beach tech support and tell them about it.

Sandisk mp3 sound problem


Well I had The Same Problem. I Thought it was the headphones and it wasnt. I ended up ripping the new headphones.
I Was really mad i Opened up the whole Player and Disconnected Everywhere and found that it was the earphone jack. the soldier it had was very cheap so it had no contact whatsoever. I connected it by bending the metal and closed the player back up and till today it now works.
I think it is your earphone jack. sansas have very cheap earpphone jack soldier or something.
I encourage you to open up the player and check the soldier. I you want contact me and ill post a video on how i did it. Hope this works.
