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!

My itouch earphone jack creates static in earphones.


sounds like the typical ipod and ipod touch common situation. It seems to be the dreaded headphone jack on the bottom or top of the device has gone belly up. You can either take it to your local apple store or look online and search your problem and see if anyone else has the same issues you have and see what can be done.You can send it to ipodsquad.com to get repairs or check your local apple store.

Headphone plug broke off and is lodged in the jack.


broken earphones are usually not repairable due to its miniature construction. i am sorry to say it's more likely you need to buy a new one. if you are really a person that loves music so much and pays attention to sound details, i suggest you buying a good quality earphones like Sennheiser. Though this has a trade off when it comes to price.

Ipod left earphone


Have you checked the headphones with another player to ensure that it is the headphones and not the iPod's headphone jack? If not I would greatly recommend doing so. If it is headphone jack on the iPod, this can be replaced rather simply. You can go to:
http://www.rapidrepair.com/shop/1626-headphone-jack-ipod-video.html

to view the price of the part and decide if it is worth repairing to you.
On the same site you can view a free guide on how to remove the damaged part(s) but also I posted a direct URL below. Simply copy and paste into your web browser's address bar.

IPod Not Working


Hi,

Does your iPod come on? If not, your battery could be bad.

If you can see the music playing, but cannot hear anything, you could have a bad earphone jack or a bad circuit board.

You can tell if it is the battery the iPod will not come on at all unless it is attached to the computer or to a power outlet.

If you can move the earphone jack around while playing music and hear something, then it is the headphone jack. If you move the jack around and hear nothing, then I would suspect the circuit board.

If you have a device that can play your music out of the USB port on the iPod, you can make sure that it is the circuit board that way. When the circuit board is bad, music will not play out of the headphone jack or the USB port.
Hope that helps.

Ipod doing wierd thingg


First off - Is there any warranty warranty left? Otherwise what most likely happened is the headphone jack connector broke a terminal. If it is a model with a screen, the headphone jack is a separate piece off the motherboard. It's a cheap part off of ebay, just find someone with nimble hands to reconnect the ribbon cable inside.

IPod- right earphone doesn't work


Yes, the headphone jack will need to be resoldered back in place. You can get it fixed at a computer repair shop or electronics shop. It shouldn't cost that much to get it repaired. Good luck to you:)
