My 80GB IPOD has stopped making audio output. i can still view photos


The chances are your headphone socket is either dirty or broken. A few places still replace the headphone jacks on iPod Classics. A number of them advertise on eBay. Search for "iPod repair" in eBay or in Google
All the best

My ipod classic is only playing out of 1 headphone, it is the same with all headphones


Step 1:
Your trusty iPod has been a close and reliable friend for a long time but one morning only the sound of air comes through the headphones. The likely culprit is a loose or broken headphone jack that is in need of repair. Rather than spend an exorbitant amount of money to have someone fix it you can easily make the repair on your own and have your iPod friend back. Read on to learn how to fix a broken headphone jack for a fifth generation 30GB or 60GB iPod video.

Open the iPod case with a small flathead screwdriver by slipping it under the centerline of the case. You will find a series of clips you have to release in order for the case to open up about an inch. Locate the headphone jack connection and verify that there are no broken wires. Fix broken wires quickly by twisting the wires back together and wrapping with electrical tape. Test the iPod for sound by connecting your headphones to the jack. Replace the wires completely if you find static coming from the iPod jack. Fold a business card twice so that it wants to unfold and slip it into the case over the blue sponge. This creates the pressure needed to hold the jack in place and allow a solid connection. Push the case together without engaging the clips on the side and test to make sure the jack is now working. Try a thicker business card or fold the first one again to get enough pressure onto the jack connection if the first card didn't fix the problem. Press the case fully together until the clips click into place. Use extra care when inserting your headset to ensure the jack remains in place.

My left headphone of my ipod is not working anymore what can i do to fix this ?


The headphone may be faulty and not the IPod. Connect a different headphone to the IPod to check if the left headphone is still faulty. If the left headphone is still faulty then the IPod headphone is probably faulty and needs to be repaired.

Have you checked the headphones with another player to ensure that it is the headphones and not the iPod's headphone jack? If not I would greatly recommend doing so. If it is headphone jack on the iPod, this can be replaced rather simply. You can go to:
http://www.rapidrepair.com/shop/1626-headphone-jack-ipod-video.html

to view the price of the part and decide if it is worth repairing to you.
On the same site you can view a free guide on how to remove the damaged part(s) but also I posted a direct URL below. Simply copy and paste into your web browser's address bar.

Headset in problem at socket pin side


Try a different set of headphones - if these do not work, call Philips and redeem your warranty if it was purchased within the last year. Headphones can be replaced, but headphone jacls cannot be repaired.

Problem with ipod


Hey jack7314,

If you've tried several different pairs of headphones and have encountered the same problem with every pair, you could possibly be looking at a defective headphone jack. In some cases when headphones are unable to make a secure connection within the jack, they may only receive an audio signal through one of the two speakers...or no sound at all.

Unfortunately, this means that you may want to seek repairs on your iPod at this time. If you are still covered under the manufacturer's warranty, I would strongly suggest contacting Apple first for more information or further assistance. Many manufacturers may be able to provide faster solutions than third-party service facilities for problems with their products, but remember that it may be necessary to ship your iPod out for repairs.

Additionally, please keep in mind that you may always bring your iPod to your local Best Buy™ store for service if it is beyond the original factory warranty. Geek Squad® agents are able to provide support for most products we sell, and can often provide you with additional suggestions and support.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Ipod Nano 1st gen 4gb. Headphone jack signal in mono, not stereo.


most likely headphone jack is broken. option one is to take it to the apple store and have them repair it. option 2 is to go on e-bay and buy a replacement jack and try to do it yourself. best option is to sell it on ebay as broken/needs repair. Someone who knows how to fix them will buy it from you and you can use the money you get to buy a good used working iPod. There are always tons of nanos for sale on ebay.

IPod- right earphone doesn't work


Yes, the headphone jack will need to be resoldered back in place. You can get it fixed at a computer repair shop or electronics shop. It shouldn't cost that much to get it repaired. Good luck to you:)
