Question about Apple iPod MA446LL/A MP3 Player

1 Answer

Static electricity I received a static electrical shock when I touched my ipod to increase the volume. Now it will not play music. The display still works as does most functions such as volume or next song. When this occurred I was playing music through my home stereo system via the auxillary jack. Have you run into this sort of problem previously? Thank you. Thorne

    I have an iPod nano 1st Gen. that I just decided to use recently. I had it in an aux jack like you and I felt a little shock as I touched the click wheel. Now I can't do anything with it! My iPod turned off when hit.

Everything works but no volume comes out the dock or the head phone plug??

if it's the head phone plug you could have burnt something out in between well i guess that would be true either way

if it is the head phone plug there is a good likely hood you can get away with minor wallet skimming

if it's both then you got me and if it's the dock then just be happy it's not totally blown

Connecting an iPod Without a Car Stereo


<p>Newer cars often come with adapters to connect an iPod to a car radio, but you can still listen to your favorite lists, if you do not have a car stereo at all. Portable electronics can be used to connect the iPod to speakers, and play it on your car. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Purchase an adapter FM radio transmitter for your iPod. It will stream music from your iPod to a low-frequency power, which can be captured by a radio in your car. For best results, use a transmitter with a power adapter 12 volts, you can power adapter car "cigarette lighter" power outlet instead of batteries. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Place a "boom box" radio in your car stereo. For purposes of the iPod, the older model, if you have done. All you need is a working radio and decent speakers. Again, it is best if you turn the car to avoid the use of batteries. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Set your transmitter to a radio frequency is not used in the stereo field, and tune the same frequency. Adjust the volume on the stereo halfway. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Place your iPod within reach of the driver or passenger. When the iPod is playing, the sound will be transmitted to the radio. You can adjust the volume on the iPod itself to control the music changing. When the iPod is off, the radios go silent, although you will hear a static noise. Turn on the radio to get rid of noise, and to save battery when not running the car's power. <br />

Very low volume on a brand new ipod touch what should i do to fix this problem


Turn on Ipod, on the left hand side there is a volume control switch. While you are on a song, hold the top of the volume control switch to increase the volume.
If that does not work then touch "settings", then touch "music" and make sure your "Volume Limit" is set to "Off", if it is not touch "Volume Limit" and set it to "Off".

Volume stays low won't increase


Your volume limit on your ipod is probably set low. To check it, go all of the way to the ipod's main menu and go to settings. Then go to volume limit and put it where you would like it to be if it is too low. Then go back to your music and play it. Turn the volume up to your liking and it should work and play louder.

How to make the sound of the iPod Better


<p>Take your music with you on your iPod, portable media player from Apple. Depending on iPod model can hold between 500 to 40,000 songs. No matter how small or large your music collection, not content with mediocre sound quality while enjoying your music. Using a combination of hardware and software settings of the iPod add-ons to your iPod pump up the jam like never before. <br /> <p><br /> <p>1. Change the iPod music equalizer. These changes and increases the sound from the iPod to better match a specific style or genre of music. Press "Menu" on the front of Click Wheel iPod. Go to "Settings" and press the middle mouse wheel. Scroll down and select "EQ". Select the type of music you listen to (e.g. "Rock") and press the middle button of the Click Wheel. <br /> <p><br /> <p>2. Sound set control function for all your iPod music playing in the same volume as surprising increase or decrease in volume between songs. Click "Settings" from the main iPod menu and choose "Sound Check" to turn it off. <br /> <p><br /> <p>3. Use headphones instead of earphones that came with your iPod. While the earbuds feature enough for everyday use, audiophiles cannot enjoy the limited range of buttons compared with headphones bigger and more powerful. Additional benefits in some models of headphones, such as blocking noise canceling ambient noise, also can help improve your iPod listening experience. <br /> <p><br /> <p>4. Connect the iPod to a stereo amplifier or iPod compatible. This adds low-range and headsets that many cannot create and is ideal for cases where you connect your iPod to share with a group sounds like a party. <br />

White screen !!


Completely white? No icons or "sad" ipod symbol?

Static buildup will make the ipod screen pale white/grey. If it were a black screen, I'd say update and reformat but static kills the unit.
