    like when you go to play a song it will say its playing but when you plug headphones into it will not play i went and did a headphone detect and it said it passed i can also play the music fine from my computer through the windows explore

    The screen functions and ipod appears to work normally, but I can not hear sound through headphones. I can still use my ipod through itunes. The sound first went fuzzy then out, so I think it is a connector problem. I haven't done anything yet to attempt to resolve the issue, I think I need a tech's help. Can I bring my ipod in to a best buy for this kind of repair?

    My IPOD sound does not come out of my headphones. All other functions seem to work fine. The only step I took to try to resolve the problem was a reset on all settings.

It may be a loose connection or broken connector. I would have it checked by a tech to see whats the problem actually.

My ipod nano has songs but no sounds


Step 1:
Since entering the marketplace and revolutionizing the way people experienced personal audio, Apple's iPod has become the unquestioned leader in MP3 players. Available in several different models and versions including the original iPod, iPhone, iPod Nano and iPod Touch the iPod allows people to listen to any number of songs with just the click of the button. However, as is the case with numerous electronics, certain iPod users encounter issues with their device, particularly sound issues. These issues range from buzzing sounds through the headphones to low volume quality to no sound at all. Fortunately, there are ways to attempt to remedy these sound issues.

Volume and Song Selection Oftentimes, those iPod users listening to heavier music (such as rock or hip-hop) will encounter a buzzing noise when playing their device at maximum or near-maximum volume. Try lowering the volume a bit, as this will most likely remedy your buzzing issues. Also, try playing a different song from a different artist at the same volume to ensure sound quality is optimal across the board. Check the Headphones Before attempting to diagnose an iPod's sound issues, ensure the iPod itself (and not the headphones) are the culprit for these sound issues. Do so by disconnecting headphones from the iPod and playing them on another device, such as another iPod, a PC or laptop. If the quality is still not optimal, the headphones (not the iPod) are likely the reason for low sound quality. Also try connecting an iPod to an iPod listening dock. If the sound quality is optimal, but not so when connected to headphones, that would also indicate headphones as the cause of low sound quality. b> Reset the iPod Sometimes, simply resetting an electronic device such as an iPod, digital cable box or video game system will remedy the solution, as it gives the device a chance to reboot. Try resetting the iPod to remedy whatever sound problem you may be encountering, whether it's no sound or less-than-optimal sound. Not all iPods are reset the same way, so consult the user manual (either paper form or through Apple.com support) to learn how to reset a particular type of iPod. Adjust Sound Settings If sound quality is less than optimal, including too much bass, not enough bass, poor acoustics or any number of other issues, try altering an iPod's system settings to correct the issue. Do so by going to the "Settings" key on the main iPod menu, then going to "EQ." From there, test certain settings to see if they may correct the iPod's issue. EQ settings allow users to set their music to a certain type of genre (in terms of how the music is delivered), as well as lowering bass, increasing bass and altering acoustics. b> Make Sure Headphones Are Fully Connected As simple as it sounds, sometimes the reason iPods have no sound at all is because their headphones become somewhat detached from the device. Such is the case with physical activities such as exercising or doing yard work. If no sound comes through the iPod, make sure the headphones are plugged in all the way to ensure the lack of sound is not a simple oversight. Consult Apple Support Whatever the sound issue, if iPod users have tried everything possible to remedy the problem with no results, they can call Apple support or visit an Apple retailer to help further diagnose the issue. The issue could be a simple fix or might be so severe that purchasing a new iPod is the best course to travel.

Ipod turns on and works - cant hear song playing


Check the volume using the buttons on it and also in your settings/volume limit. If that doesn't work, resync it with iTunes and see if there is a parental control in place preventing music to be played.

IPod MA146LL/A no sound


The license on the songs may be expired - i would check on that first.

If not, do the 5 R's suggested in the User's manual - go to Apple's website if you have lost the manual.

Mp3 output volume


The problem with iPod is that you just can't play music without iTunes. If you happen to delete the iTunes related folder on the iPod you will notice that you won't be able to play any of the files that are still there. (iTunes is the software that makes the iPod work).

On the other hand, you can surely drag and drop songs between your laptop and iPod (like Windows Explorer) ...and use the iPod like a portable Hard disk, but you won't be able to play any Music. So as it is, using iTunes is a must.

For varying sound volumes, you can use a technique called as "normalizing". There are a lot of tools available on the internet (free or otherwise) that let you normalize mp3s.
Search google for "normalize mp3".
