Remove 4 screws on the back case. Remove the battery. Remove 4 more screws holding the circuit board cover. Pry out the circuit board. A black rectangular box may fall out, that's the jack receptacle.
I soldered a small ball of solder on the only tab sticking out of the jack receptacle, I then folded a post-it-note into 4's then cut it to fit on the back of the housing (to force the housing to fit tighter against the circuit board) then reassemble...

If the head phone jack works its more likely to be the problem, if you use the headphone jack a lot the connections inside it can get worn or bent out of shape--engaging the headphone jack should shut the speakers in the unit off.
Other possible reason is a bad speaker or connections.
ibm sound card is not faulty, because you are getting sound with your head phone. The head phone jack have two functions 1. to give output to head phone 2. to disconnect internal speakers when you plug in head phone. The jack for headphone in normal position not give connectivity to internal speakers. SOLUTION : REPLACE THE HEADPHONE JACK. I think it will help you.
it could be your headphones or the headphone jack on your mp3 is dirty or messed up try to clean out the inside of it to see if that hellps also try using a seperate set of headphones to see if it plays
You should have sound from the speakers at all times until headphones are plugged into the jack, the jack then overrides the speakers and allows you to listen using the headphones. If the speakers aren't working, it's because they're being overridden by the damaged jack. The only way to correct this is to replace the faulty jacks. You could get a set of external speakers, the con is they're bulky and inconvenient.
i have the exact same problem and went to the applestore to ask what solutions they suggest. either you can buy an adapter which goes in the bottom of the ipod and has the necessary headphone equipment. propably best to go to www.apple.com and look at the accessories. another solution is to send it to www.ipodrepairs.com. unfortunaley there are no solutions which are for free.
