If you have a case on your ipod with a sleeve over the volume slider, it could be the case. Have a similar problem with mine. Best thing to do is to clean your case and Ipod really well. If you dont have a case, then I have no clue.
What has happened is someone or you have put a code on your ipod for the limit of the sound.
If you dont know the code then you will have to restore you ipod to get rid of it.
I suggest backing up your ipod before hand or you will lose all of your songs
