I just received an ipod 8g 'apple' which I purchased while bidding on an online auction. Problem - I get it to turn on but nothing else - no sound, etc. My sole purpose for making the purchase...

Hi there,
Please make sure that there are music files stored on your ipod and there are games (apps) that can be played on it.
You would have to put music files in the ipod so it can play it back and the Apps (games) would have to be downloaded from the app store.
One more thing you would like to check is if the ipod has been unlocked.
Hope this helps!

I can only get sound out of one ear. Sometimes, if I move the chord around, I can get sound our of both ears. It comes and goes.

I have had this problem several times. It can be due to a number of things
Firstly, try the MP3 player with a different set of headphones, if both ears work, then the headphones are the problem. Check the adaptor and/or cabling for any damage or defects. If the internal cabling is damaged, you will need to go and buy a new pair.
If the problem is the player itself, try checking the headphone port for dust or any other artefacts blocking the way. This can cause he connection to fail and therefore lose sound.
On a side note, if you love listening to music, i would suggest a high quality set of headphones. Sennheiser (my personal favourites) and Shure are both a VERY good brand to go for. You do pay a bit more, but sound quality and build quality are faultless.

In the headset sound is comming from only one side

There is a wire break on one side of the headphone and so you will need to check the continuity of the headphone.
The fault can be at the earpiece or the connecting jack from which it had come off.

Sansa fuze mp3 4gb radio does not have any sound!!!

Check your headphones with another system, check your ipod with another headphone if the fault is now confirmed you may have a conection fault with the jack usually if another type had been pushed in. If you are electronics savvy then use right tools to slowly open device, use a good soldering low wattage iron with emi protection to solder up the output jack side. and still if no sound comes the audio amp ic. If not you have a damaged ic. Hope you have tried to reset the device. check this out! helpful? Good day

I can here a music in headphone on one side only that is right side but not on left side i have tried many headphone to it but it can be here only one side so plz tell me setting how can i able to here on...

This is a simple problem and fix. The headphone jack goes bad and only one side or no sound at all will play. They are very cheap and easy to replace. Ebay has them for around 3 dollars complete with lock switch and you can find a how to video on youtube. Tools come with some of these and are very helpful in opening case and opening ribbon locks. You will need a mini philips screwdriver as the only other tool. Hope this helps and good luck. This is how i repaired mine two years ago and still works. I would suggest ordering two jacks because of wait time and they are cheap.

ITouch 2nd g only plays music throuhg left side of all headphones

Try playing with the headphone plug, until you can also hear the right
channel and also try a different set of headphones as it is probably a
matter of an intermittent headphone jack, or plug, owing to sudden
snatching of the headphone plug from same, a very common problem.

Eliminate this cause before submitting your Touch for much more
expensive remedies

If you wrap the headphone around your iPod, after a while, it may bend a pin in the headphone jack, causing no contact to be made, therefor one side of music. You can try to bend it back with a pin, or order a new ******** www.ifixitcom.

Ipod and headphone problem

The headphone jack on all the apple products have issues (even their laptops). There is no easy fix, other than having the jack replaced, or remounted. A common issue is that it comes loose from the pc board, especially with the movement of the headphone cord. This is a design/functionality flaw.

Hope this helps some.

I can only hear out of one headphone i ve bought new headphones it just want work

Hate to tell you this, but most likely the headphone jack on your player is broken. It happens alot. If it's under warranty return it to the store. I don't believe the jack is user replaceable on this player. Try inserting the headphone jack only partway and see if you get both sides. Your cheapest solution if it's out of warranty may be to just insert the jack to the point at which you get both sides to work. It's a crappy solution, but it's probably your only hope. It's not a software problem or anything that can be fixed without tearing the player apart. Sorry for the bad news....

Lock up

Sounds like the ground connection (-ve) to the earphone socket is broken.

When you plug in the earphones, they ground through the control section on the board. Poor sound is another sympton of this problem.

If you have any soldering experience, dismantle the player, and re-solder the 4 connections to the headphone socket.
