First off, use the "MENU" button to navigate to the very top of your iPod menu, then choose "Settings":Within settings, you'll find "Volume Limit": Choose that and you can now specify the maximum allowable volume that the iPod will play by simply spinning the wheel clockwise or counterclockwise:Like your new setting? Push the button in the middle of the wheel to set it, then enter a four-digit combination to lock it in place:"Set Combination" looks pretty cool, actually, kinda like some safe cracking game or something:   

If your ipod is in your pocket, you can use the hold button at the top of the ipod

How to disable ipod


Your iPod touch shows a lock symbol on the top of the screen when it's in lock mode. This protects your iPod from being accidentally bumped on or off while you're focused on other things. Getting in and out of lock mode is somewhat intuitive, but can take a couple of tries the first time.

What Does Lock Mode Do? Lock mode keeps you from accidentally turning your iPod on or off.
This helps save battery life if you have it locked while it's asleep.
It prevents your music from turning off if you've put your iPod in your pocket. However.
it's not an advanced security feature -- anyone can bring your iPod out of lock mode if they know how.
Lock Symbol When you see the lock symbol on the top of your iPod touch's screen, it always means that the iPod is in lock mode. There's no other reason for that symbol to appear. If it appears and your iPod is not in lock mode, just turn your iPod touch off and then on again and it should disappear. b> Entering Lock Mode b> Press the Sleep/Wake button on the top right of the iPod touch. You may need to hold it down for a couple of seconds. Don't hold it down for too long, as ten seconds or so will force a restart and turn your iPod completely off and then on again. b> Exiting Lock Mode b> Press the Sleep/Wake button again, and wait a moment for the screen to light up. You'll see a slider bar that prompts you to slide it to wake up and unlock the iPod touch. Put a finger or thumb on the solid part of the slider, then slide your finger to the right. This gesture is simple, but might take a couple of tries. You need to tap firmly on the slider, then keep contact with the iPod as you slide to the right.

I got his ipod touch 1st gen. on the internet and everything worked except for the sound on the music but i figured out tht i could her the sound faintly but i cant get it to turn up.....ive tried the...


Since you got this from the internet I think the person you bought it from might be messing with you. On the iPod touch it is possible to limit how loud music is played, and a prankster might do this to you. To check if they did this:
  1. On your iPod, go to the Settings app.
  2. Scroll down to "Music."
  3. Choose "Volume Limit"
Here is where you would be able to find out if there is a volume limit on your iPod. If they didn't lock it then you can slide the volume slider all the way to the right, but if they did lock the volume, you have to go to option 2.
Option 2 is to restore it with iTunes. And this will fix just about anything that goes wrong with your iPod.
  1. Plug your iPod into iTunes and sync it.
  2. On the sidebar on the left, click on your iPod and go to the summary tab.
  3. Click on restore and let iTunes do its thing.
  4. After it is restored you should be able to put all of your music back on it and hopefully the iPod will be fixed.
Good luck!

How to unlock volume limit


that is not a problem follow the steps below and if it doesnt work let me know i will assist you from there. unfortunately the password for the volume lock is whatever you set it as but you can do this. Plug in your iPod and iTunes will open ( or open it youself)Select all you songs by clicking ctrl and A. (PC's: Ctrl and A at the same time. Mac's: Apple and A at the same time.) Right click your songs. Click "Get Info" Click "Yes" Click the "Options" tab Check "Volume Adjustment" Put the Curser all the way to "+100%". Select Ok! Hidden Folder for Mac's Enable hidden folders. If you go into Terminal and run these two commands all the hidden files appear when you open Finder. defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles TRUE killall Finder To get back to hiding hidden files use these commands defaults write com.apple.finder AppleShowAllFiles FALSE killall Finder Navigate to the hidden folder named "iPod_Control", and once there click on the folder "Device". Once there, delete the file named "_volumelocked". Eject your iPod. Then, restart your iPod. You can do this by holding down the center and menu button for at least 6 seconds. Once your iPod has rebooted, check and make sure that it worked. Simply go into "Settings", "Volume Limit". If it asks for a PIN, you did it WRONG. Retry the above procedure.
Hidden folders for windows PC Enable hidden folders. In Windows explorer,go to "Tools", "Folder Options". Then click on the tab called "View", and under "Hidden Files and Folders", click "Show Hidden Files and Folders". Navigate ("My Computer" to double-click on the icon of your attached iPod) to the hidden folder named "iPod_Control", and once there click on the folder "Device". Once there, copy the file named "_volumelocked" to a folder on your hard drive then delete it from the iPod. Eject your iPod. Then, restart your iPod. You can do this by holding down the center and menu button for at least 6 seconds. If using an iPod Nano, hold down the center button and menu button simultaneously for about 10 seconds. Once your iPod has rebooted, check and make sure that it worked. Simply go into "Settings", "Volume Limit". If it asks for a PIN, you did it WRONG. Retry the above procedure.
Warning: Note that some methods may not work on all iPods. Not all ipods have the file called "_volumelocked" it is impossible to get better sound on some of the ipod gens, for example the 5g 60-80 gigabyte ipods. Don't Listen to music too loudly. It will destroy your hearing. Don't delete any more files than necessary as it may prevent your iPod from working

Dynex iPod Dock with Remote Control connected to a tv. Volume not loud enough even though volume on tv and ipod volume are all the way up.


i had the same problem. it seems that you have to use the remote to turn the volume up on the ipod instead of doing it manually. that worked for me.

No sound from a known working headset on my ipod shuffle 1st generation


The light should be Hoff when operating, and if you pause it it will blink. If you hold the play/pause button you will lock the keypad. this is to prevent accidental skipping/stoping/volumae changes while having it on your pocket. Hold the play button for two seconds or more to activate/deactivate this function. -Chris
