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 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.
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
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.
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.
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.
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....
