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.

My Ipod nano records video with sound but the audio is barely hearable with noises like in an untuned radio. Video is premium quality though.


well that is because this isnt specifically made for audio recording, it does have a special mic on it so that it can be able to drown out the outside noise, and focus on what your taping, this is a problem with alot of video recorders and unfortunately you cant do much about it unless your in a quite place, but there will still be background noise

My Video ipod has poor quality sound. Kinda lacks bass.


If you've messed with the EQ settings and it still sounds horrible you may want to have the jack/hold switch assembly replaced. You can get a jack/hold switch assembly on eBay for around $7 for your model of iPod.

Wifi wont work


It sounds like the wireless hardware is not working. I would suggest that you take it back to an apple store and ask them for advice. If it is still under warranty they will repair it free of charge.

It sounds like it's definitely a problem with your iPod. . . Sometimes the connectors on the inside of the unit can go bad. I've not heard now this can be fixed though. I would try calling apple and seeing it the unit is still under warranty.

The internal speakers on my ipod touch don't work


As far as I know, the sound quality coming out of the ipod is not so great to begin with. I have an iPod touch, and the speaker I have right now was only $12.59 and the sound quality is great. plus I have my headphones from UxSight. They are amazing. Here is the link: iPod speakers

How to connect to ford mondeo


You can go two routes for this, wireless or cabled. Wireless is of course good because it has no cables but the sound quality is not that great - ok, but not great. So my suggestion is to go the cabled route which actuall ends up being neater anyway and gives pretty much 1:1 quality. There's plenty of people out there that creat adaptors and cables but check these guys out:

They range from about £50-100 - and doing a search on eBay for 'Ford iPod Adapter' comes up with similar devices at a similar cost.

All the best

Sounds like it's off to the apple shop for repairs. He might have broken something on the main board when it was dropped.
