On this model there are frequent issues with the headphone jack module. just needs to be swapped out, that can be done by a tech savy user. there is a ipod repair guide if you want to do it yourself or have a tech savy friend help you.

Thanks for the Post jack7314 ,

It sounds like if you do not hear anything coming out of both of the ear pieces that you have a Blown amp on the Logic Board meaning this happens if you use a Docking Station where you can crank up the volume so much where it will blow out the Amp on the Board. What this means is you need a New Logic Board.

Now if you can hear out of one side only it is just a HeadPhone Jack Replacment and we both can do this for you.

If you would like for us to have this repaired please send us a Email at sales@ipodrepairz.com

Or give us a call directly at 661-617-0862

We look foward to your Business and also repairing your Broken iPOD.

If both earbuds do not produce sound then theres a good chance your board is bad. If you hear out of one earbud then chances are you just need a new audio jack.

Hey jack7314,

If you've tried several different pairs of headphones and have encountered the same problem with every pair, you could possibly be looking at a defective headphone jack. In some cases when headphones are unable to make a secure connection within the jack, they may only receive an audio signal through one of the two speakers...or no sound at all.

Unfortunately, this means that you may want to seek repairs on your iPod at this time. If you are still covered under the manufacturer's warranty, I would strongly suggest contacting Apple first for more information or further assistance. Many manufacturers may be able to provide faster solutions than third-party service facilities for problems with their products, but remember that it may be necessary to ship your iPod out for repairs.

Additionally, please keep in mind that you may always bring your iPod to your local Best Buy™ store for service if it is beyond the original factory warranty. Geek Squad® agents are able to provide support for most products we sell, and can often provide you with additional suggestions and support.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron

Right ear phone of my IPOD 30gb not working properly


If you are sure that the head phones have not malfunctioned at all, I would reset the ipod first. If that does not resolve the issue, you will want to restore the ipod using itunes on your computer. Just in case you are unaware of how to do either a reset or restore, I have included a step by step below.
I would recommend testing the headphone with another working player to ensure that they are in fact working fine. If you have already done this, I apologize for waisted space. :)

Toggle the Hold switch on and off. (Slide it to Hold, then turn it off again.) Press and hold the Menu and Center (Select) buttons simultaneously until the Apple logo appears, about 6 to 8 seconds. You may need to repeat this step. Tip: If you are having difficulty resetting your iPod, set it on a flat surface. Make sure the finger pressing the Select button is not touching any part of the click wheel. Also make sure that you are pressing the Menu button toward the outside of the click wheel, and not near the center.



How to restore iPod (ARTICLE NUMBER HT1339)
Open iTunes, and then connect your iPod to your computer using the USB or FireWire cable that came with your iPod.

After a few moments, your iPod will appear in the Source panel in iTunes.
Select your iPod in the Source panel and you will see information about your iPod appear in the Summary tab of the main iTunes windows.

Click the Restore button. You will be prompted with one or more restore options that may prompt iTunes to automatically download the latest iPod Software.

The 4 possible restore options are: Restore Option

1: Restore - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod. Restore Option

2: Use Same Version - Restores with same iPod Software version already on iPod even though a newer version is available. Restore Option

3: Use Newest Version - Restores with the latest iPod Software available. Restore Option

4: Restore and Update - Restores with the latest iPod Software available.

If you are using a Mac, a message will appear prompting you to enter an administrator’s name and password.

A progress bar will appear on the computer screen indicating that the first stage of the restore process has started.

When this stage is completed, iTunes will present one of two messages on screen with instructions specific to the iPod model you are restoring.
Restore Instruction 1: Disconnect iPod and connect it to iPod Power Adapter (typically applies to older iPod models).


Restore Instruction 2: Leave iPod connected to computer to complete restore (typically applies newer iPod models).

During the stage 2 of the restore process, the iPod will show an Apple logo as well as a progress bar at the bottom of the display. It is critical that the iPod remains connected to the computer or iPod Power adapter during this stage.

Note: The progress bar may be difficult to see since the backlight on the iPod display may be off.

After stage 2 of the restore process is complete and the iPod is connected to the computer, the iTunes Setup Assistant window will appear asking you to name your iPod and choose your syncing preferences similar to when you connected your iPod for the first time.

If none of these steps resolve your issue, then you sadly have a hardware issue with the ipod itself.

My ipod says www.apple.com/support/ipod WHEN TRY TO CHARGE MY IPOD, IT BEGANS TO CHARGE AND STOPS AFTER A LITTLE WHILE.


Guys, if you have the ipod photo, I used to get the hard drive locking up , which would bring up the www.apple.com/support/ipod screen.

WHen you try to start it up, put the ipod to your ear and listen to hear if the hard drive is stuck-ie if you can hear the drive repeating a clicking noise, then it is stuck.

If it does this, hit the ipod with an open hand (like a slap). No joke. This is for real. Slap it a couple of times and then try to restart it. If it doens't work the first time, try it again. SOmetimes it works first go, sometimes it takes a few, but eventually it does work.
It seems like the hardware inside is stuck for some reason and slapping it fixes the problem.

My ipod has locked up about 5 or 6 times and each time it has worked for me.

Give it a go. Don't pay apple to get it fixed. They probably do the same thing and charge you hundreds for it.

Good luck!

Only the left ear bud has sound


Hey NoRightSound,

If your earbud headphones function normally with other devices, there are a number of reasons why this problem may be occurring, including faulty connections within the iPod itself or a potentially defective headphone jack. While both of these issues can typically be resolved fairly easily, I would first suggest contacting your local Apple-authorized service center for a complete diagnostic to pinpoint the exact cause of the problem.

Remember that if your iPod is still under the original manufacturer's warranty, you can always call Apple directly for technical support over the phone in addition to working with a technician in your area.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
