    i restored and restarted the itouch as suggested but the problem still persist. i do think however, that it may the headphone jack because fiddeling with the headphones the sound would come on and off. what do you think?

    the thing is about the headphone jack problem is i never droped my itouch, there simple was no sound coming out of the left headphone with no prior problem before-hand. i tried three different pairs of headphone since with the same result. but when i tried the apple headphone that came with my itouch it worked on both sides, however they too no longer play on both sides.one last thing, on another site in regardes to my problem a blogger posted they put a piece of foil in the jack and it worked. what do you think about this possible solution and do you think i should try it? thanks for all the help.

There is a good chance the headphone jack female socket on itouch is faulty, this happens more often than you think.
Check your guaranty and contact Apple at number printed at the end of user manual to get it repaired.

Dear sir/madam,

There is a good chance that the drop caused some contacts in the headphone jack to move. This wouldn't be a difficult repair except that all of Apple's equipment is impossible to open up without demolishing. I suggest utilizing any warranty you may have. Good luck.

thanks

Sounds like headphone jack is either dirty or loose in the unit or a possible blown fuse.

if still under warrenty I would get it serviced if not then if you feel comfortable opening it up and looking around the inside of the unit around the sounds output jack then you can try that and see if you can find any blown or burnt problems around there loose connections.

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.

You need to get a new head phone jack installed. It should be free if it is still under warranty.

Hi, my sansa e250 has sound come out of only one head phone no matter how many headphones i try the same happens


The jack in the e250s is not made of adamantium, so it can actually go bad; however, if you try different headphones and thus determine that either:
  - All the headphones simultaneously went bad in one side
  - Your left ear has issues
  - The Sansa is only cranking out one channel; and
     -the jack feels a little off, or
     -perfectly good mp3s are being played off-balance; AND the balance has not been misconfigured in Settings.

...well then, the plot's moving forward and you can get your ear fixed, or stop the cat from killing your headphones, or re-load Sansa or Rockbox.org firmware, or fix the Settings, or see to the appropriate repair to the jack (depending on your warrantee status and skill with soldering irons and ordering off Jameco.com etc.)
