Re: ipod Nano 1st gen 4gb. Headphone jack signal in mono,...
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.

Within the jack, there is a very delicate balance. The same thing happened to the auxiliary jack in my car. Since it is broken, you'll need to either see if you're eligible for an Apple warranty replacement or repair, see if a local electronics place can fix it at a decent price, or spring for a replacement.
The only thing that I know when I have been presented with this problem in the past is that your headphone jack is shot. There is no way to fix this. You now have a portable hard drive and should invest in either a new ipod or other type of mp3 player.
If you wrap the headphone around your iPod, after a while, it may bend a pin in the headphone jack, causing no contact to be made, therefor one side of music.
You can try to bend it back with a pin, or order a new ******** www.ifixitcom.
