IPod with no sound

The IPod fuctions correctly but no sound can be heard through the headphones. I have tryed many different headphones and found the problem to be with the IPod itself. Also, no sound can be heard when the Ipod is plugged into to ITrip in the car eather.

Try resetting the IPod by holding down the center button while pressing the menu button. That will reboot the IPod.

If that doesn't work, restore the software.

If that doesn't work, then take it to Apple.

Theres a little chip inside the ipod that got loose all you have to do is push it in and you have sound again. But you need to find a way to keep it in place after that.

If you can hear either earbud than 1 of 2 things may be wrong:

1-you need a new ipod headphone jack.
2-a component thats located on your main board has gone bad.

you can try: they fix these types of things everyday.

I think the best solution to avoid these simple problems is simply to not buy any Apple ****.
First it was the damn batteries that would die after 18 months. Now this ridiculous "no sound" problem that is plaguing ipods that will only work if you stick them in the freezer.
its ridiculous that people keep buying apple garbage when every other player is cheaper, and more reliable.
Apple to me is now a symbol of garbage electronic products.
My Sony Discman still works like new. ipods die right after the warranty does.

Apple charges 130$ to send in and fix the problem. representative told me that if it were his he would take it to a local ipod repair shop because ipod cannot compete with their repair costs. a new 80gig refurbished is 200$ doesnt seem right.

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 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.

I transferred music to my mp4, however I cannot hear it when it plays. I know it was transferred correctly, but the music bar moves/plays but no sound is heard. My headphones are new.

Try a different set of headphones, if there is still no sound, check the volume limit on the iPod:
if that still does not help try resetting it by pressing the MENU and PLAY buttons simultaneously for a couple of seconds, I hope that did work. But, if it didn't, try doing the diagnostic in it to find out if it is a faulty jack: Hope it is just headphones!

My ipod doesnt only works out of one headphone.

I actually had the exact same problem with my ipod touch. It's actually not a problem with the headphones but with the headphone jack on the ipod. For a while i "solved" this problem by wrapping my headphone wires twice around my ipod [so it was tight and the sound could be heard, the same way u do it by pushing it with ur finger]. Well one day my ipod jack just fixed itself, I got lucky. But my advice to you is to send it into apple like my friend who had the same problem did, they sent him a new one [hopefully u have a warrenty!]
hope that helped!!..thank you!!..

Hey eguerra89,

If you've already tried resetting the iPod, you might want to also try using a different pair of headphones to see if you encounter the same problem. While this may not necessarily resolve this specific issue, defective headphones can be one of the most common reasons why you would not hear audio playback. Additionally, you may wish to also try updating the system software on the iPod itself. In some cases, damaged or outdated software files may prevent the iPod from correctly playing songs.

Should resetting the iPod, trying different headphones/speakers and updating system software not work, you may then need to contact your local iPod repair facility for further assistance. Remember that you can always contact Apple by calling their toll-free hotline at 800-275-2273, or seek service though many major retailers (including your local Best Buy™ store).

Hope this helps you out.

Go Ahead. Use Us.
