"Big" Outlet : When looking at the bottom of the iPod you see two outlets, one headphone jack and the other is the big one that has many uses. It's main use is using it for the USB cord, but it is also used in FM Transmitters, iHome, etc. Anyways, it has some problems. It works for some things and struggles with others. With the iHome, the iPod can't play songs like it used to, but it will still charge on the iHome. Using the USB cord to put songs on is not a problem at all. Might be able to be fixed, I don't know. I'm sure Apple can do something about it.
Headphone Jack: The headphone jack has a small problem. When headphones are plugged fully in the iPod, sound only comes out of one ear. To solve the problem you need to pull the headphones out slightly and find a sweet spot and it will play out of both ears. (there are many sweet spotsby the way)
I share the same problem - I'm worried it's due to routine wear-and-tear on the jacks, so the connections are no longer solid. I hate to think I need to get it serviced for this. Usually buying a new cable has worked, but that gets expensive too...
Anyone have a fix??

I have the same speakers. It should have two plugs, one green and one pink. the pink plug is for a microphone. On the side of the speaker with the control knobs, you will find a headphone jack and a microphone jack. Unless you plan to plug a microphone into the pink microphone jack on the side of the speaker, you don't need to plug in the pink plug that goes to the PC. This is basically a microphone extension cord that runs through the speaker cord. That's all the pink plug is for. The green plug, on the other hand, is for your audio out. take the green plug and plug it into your computer's head phone outlet and you're good to go. You can use the speakers with any device that has a headphone jack. Just make sure you use the green plug, not the pink plug.
what type of input does your radio have? if its a head phone jack input just get a headphone to headphone jack wire from radioshack and plug one end into you ipod and the other into the radio, set your radio to aux and your ipods volume to 70-80%. if its an rca input, it exactly the same but you will need an rca to headphone jack wire. if its usb, just use the cable that came with you ipod.
The headphone jack will not charge your iPod. Only the USB will charge your iPod.
However, the headphone jack will play music, but the USB will not play music from your iPod.
The headphone jack does not provide any power to charge your iPod. It isnly has enough power to recieve a music signal.
REASON WHY YOU CANNOT PLAY IPOD THROUGH THE USB:
The USB is only intended to be used with a flash drive or external hard drive with a folder structure containing either .mp3 or .wma files.
The way the USB works on the system is that it reads all the files and folders on the entire device and will say "reading" until it reads all the files and folders. This should only take a few seconds but if there is tons of files it may take longer.
Main problem: An iPod contains much more than just music files and folders - it contains an entire operating system. Worse, the operating system which the iPod uses is protected, keeping other devices except for iTunes from reading the music files.
TO PLAY MUSIC FROM USB (NOT IPOD):
You will need to use a flash drive or external hard drive with your USB. This device can only contain music, and the music must be organized into folders. Your iPod will not work. However, you can use Auxiliary input using a cable which both ends are 1/4" headphone jacks, one end going to the iPod and other plugged into your stereo.
To charge your iPod, you need to plug it into USB.
However, to play music, you need to plug your iPod into the headphone jack.

All you need is a new headphone jack as yours may be messed up, or it may need to be checked as the cord may have came loose and just needs to be reconnected. They are pretty cheap to replace so it will not cost alot to fix.
Does your iPod come on? If not, your battery could be bad.
If you can see the music playing, but cannot hear anything, you could have a bad earphone jack or a bad circuit board.
You can tell if it is the battery the iPod will not come on at all unless it is attached to the computer or to a power outlet.
If you can move the earphone jack around while playing music and hear something, then it is the headphone jack. If you move the jack around and hear nothing, then I would suspect the circuit board.
If you have a device that can play your music out of the USB port on the iPod, you can make sure that it is the circuit board that way. When the circuit board is bad, music will not play out of the headphone jack or the USB port. Hope that helps.
Just a thought...does the set have a headphone jack? When you plug in most headphone jacks it disables the internal speakers. If it does have a headphone jack trying plugging in some headphones to see if you have sound there. If you do, plug/unplug it a few times...worth a shot.
