Question about Apple iPod touch 1st Generation (8 GB) MP3 Player

1 Answer

My 1st generation 8gb ipod touch wont play any sound via the headphones. I have tried multiple sets of headphones but all tono avail. I have tried restore via iTunes, I have tried to hold down power button and track wheel to reboot and I have tried reset via general option under settings. The ipod has up to date software. I dont think this is a mechanical problem with the headphones or jack as there is no noise at all when I plug in headphones. I am lost as to what to try next. Pls help if poss, before I trail off to the Apple store

It sounds like you have a headphone jack failure. Have you had any difficulty inserting the headset? Was there any event that happened when headphones were in and working.

SOURCE: my 8GB ipod touch is disabled

You need to put in DFU MODE, and restore your ipod touch.
Easy:
Press The Home Button + power button for 10 seconds. after 10 seconds, press only the Homme button.
And now, connect your ipod touch on itunes and press RESTORE.

SOURCE: I dropped my ipod touch 1st generation and now it

Your fu..ed cause these ipod touches are fragile and don't like falling and crashing to the ground.  I would suggest you purchase an In Case cover next time.
Chalk this thing up as a loss since it is out of warranty and buy you a 2nd Gen or 3rd Gen ipod touch.
If your a cheap bastard, then you can pay someone to crack this thing open and fix it for you, but the time involved might prove costly compared to getting a new unit.  Were such a throw away society now a days.

Speakers not working


Try restoring the ipod or cleaning the ipod jack first. Usually it is caused by the dirt accumulated inside the jack. The ipod thinks there is a headphone inserted even when there is none.

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.

Updated my ipod software and now it wont play on my home theatre system


This is always tricky with 1st generation iPod touches. After a while they can't handle the new software anymore and some functions won't work anymore. Maybe try to downgrade the software. Otherwise you should probably get a new iPod.

When i take out my headphones out of mu ipod touch it wont let me hear it without the headphones on


you have to hit play again after you unplug the headphones and turn the volume up using the buttons on the left side of the device, if you have no buttons on the left side then you have the 1st Gen iPod touch which you can only listen to with headphones.

Ipod touch 8 gig 1st generation...no sound from any headphones, a little if I move the base around a bit. Can I fix this myself? Is it fixable? My husband says the jack is lose...am I screwed?


Yep, you are! If it's under warranty (12 months), take it to your nearest Authorised Apple Service Centre and they will get it exchanged in a couple of days
No warranty? Google "iPod repairs" in your country and you should be able to find someone who can fix it. The usually have a self diagnosis on line so will get an idea of the cost before you begin. Don't try it yourself!

No sound from headphones


The only thing that I know when I have been presented with this problem in the past is that your headphone jack is shot. There is no way to fix this. You now have a portable hard drive and should invest in either a new ipod or other type of mp3 player.
