A lot of people have the same exact problem and there are two reason for the problem , first the headphone is not working fine so try a different head phone and see if that work and second the headset port on the IPOD is bad and the only way to correct that is to replace the IPOD.
You can also do this steps in correcting the problem, the earphones must be pushed very hard into the iPod. So hard, that the white part of the plug must touch the iPod in order for the external speakers to turn off. You will hear a click.

moz-screenshot-12.pngmoz-screenshot-13.pngmoz-screenshot-14.pngmoz-screenshot-15.png honestytessy.jpgHow to Connect an iPod to a Speaker Bar

A speaker bar is a (usually portable) speaker system that includes a dock for an iPod. The unit is usually bar-shaped, with either a rectangular or cylindrical cross-section. Connecting an iPod to a speaker bar is usually as simple as plugging it in. Many speaker bars will also charge the iPod while it is connected. However some do not have an iPod dock, in which case the iPod must be connected by a 3.5mm audio cable.


Instructions

Things You'll Need:

* 3.5mm cable (for some speaker bars)


Turn the iPod on. Look to see if the speaker bar has a dock for the iPod. The dock will fit an iPod perfectly and will generally be located in the center of the speaker bar. There will be a connector that resembles the connector on the docking cable that came with the iPod. Place the iPod on the docking station and turn on the speaker bar. Such is the case with the "2.1 Channel Bar Speaker with Dock for iPod" or the "Yamaha YAS-71BL Front Surround Speaker System"


iPod headphones use a 3.5mm audio cable.

honestytessy_0.jpg

Connect the iPod via the 3.5mm cable. If the speaker bar does not have a docking station it will have a 3.5mm cable connector with a jack like the headphone jack on iPod ear pods. Plug the 3.5mm cable in the iPod headphone jack. Plug the other end in the iPod. Turn on the speaker bar. The procedure is straight forward and Apple specifically designed the headphone jack with third party stereos in mind.


Select a song on the iPod and play it. The speaker bar will play the music from the iPod.

Hope that helped..

have a nice day.

Internal speaker stopped working on my ipod 5th gen, headphones still work tho.... anyone got the solution??? cheers


Well, the internal speaker does not play sounds... It is not possible for the iPod's internal speaker to play music, as it is only capable of making three disctinct sounds:

the clicky noise

the alarm sound

the chirpy noise when you boot into diagnostic mode


You can get those sounds back by going into SETTINGS on the IPOD and turning the sounds back on.

take the headphones out play the music full volume then put the headphones in and lower the music all the way down then your volume will be normal and it will only play in through the head phones unless you take headphones out then it will play through speakers

Cannot play external speakers


Try firmly pressing the iPod into the dock connector. If it works, good. If it doesn't, then your iPod may not have support for the speakers.

Ipod won't play through speakers anymore?


The problem is the internal headphone jack has malfunctioned. To fix the problem first try doing a hard reset, then update your ipod with the newest version for it. Also try blowing it out with canned air. If this does not work and you are still under warranty schedule an appointment with a genius at your local Apple Store. If you don't have a warranty then order an internal headphone jack online and install it yourself, because apple will charge you more than your ipod is worth. Make sure you order it for your model. You can go to youtube and find tons of tutorials on how to install the jack. So good luck. This is a very common problem with ipods and is simple to fix with the right parts.
