My iPod's right headphone doesn't work, i've tried multiple different headphones, that work perfectly in other peoples iPods. It works in mono, and if you manipulate the headphone jack enough you can get a faint sound from it. It started happening a couple weeks ago.

Anyone have any idea what it is?

It's not that big of a deal, I'm selling it anyway, I just could probably get more for it if the right headphone actually works.

Thanks

Either:

1. It's your headphones; you twisted the cables around, and eventually they broke, resulting in loss of sound.

2. It's your iPod. This is likely, as Apple makes ****ty products.

i agree that it's probably the iPod, not the headphones (as they work in everyone elses iPods), but the headphone will work at certain times. Is it possible theres some dust or other particles blocking the right headphone jack from connecting all the way?

i think the older ones are just a bit faulty. send it back to apple and they should give you a diffrenent one if you still have warranty

Same thing happened to me, 30 gig Video too. I've never even tried to have it fixed or replaced because there's no Apple store in my town and I don't have a warranty.

OR! OMG THAT PISSES ME OFF! Why do people put it into separate categories. It's like saying a Fender isn't a guitar.

The headphone jack is whats broken...not the headphone as more headsets work.
If it's a pod that can be opened open it up and bend the jack contacts so they hold onto the connector better.
Best thing to do is to send it out for repair for a problem like this.

Same thing happened to mine. Luckily it was still under warranty so they just shipped me a new one. I don't think there's much you can do unless you want to pay out of your ass to get it fixed or replaced.

This happened to me. I got Apple to replace it.

Exact same thing happened to me, it was even the right side. I took it to apple but my warrenty was expired, so I had to get a new one.
