Question about Apple iPod nano 5th Generation

1 Answer

My ipod won't switch from the speaker on it to my head phone when I plug them in

The iPod won't register that my headphones are plugged in and won't stop playing the music on its built in speaker so when I plug the head phones in you can still hear the music playing. What do I do?!?

Restart your ipod by holding the home and power button at the same time, this will restart it and should fix it.

SOURCE: My IPOD Nano is not recognizing that my headphones are plugged in

Try another set of earphones, if those don't work either, then get it replaced.

Replacing this piece is not that hard. Opening up the iPod's casing is the tricky part. It can be very easy or very difficult if you don't get it right the first few times. Just make sure you get the correct open tools for it so you don't scratch up the iPod while opening it.

A speaker bar is a (usually portable) speaker system that includes a dock for an iPod. The unit is usually bar-shaped, with either a rectangular or cylindrical cross-section. Connecting an iPod to a speaker bar is usually as simple as plugging it in. Many speaker bars will also charge the iPod while it is connected. However some do not have an iPod dock, in which case the iPod must be connected by a 3.5mm audio cable.


Instructions

Things You'll Need:

* 3.5mm cable (for some speaker bars)


Turn the iPod on. Look to see if the speaker bar has a dock for the iPod. The dock will fit an iPod perfectly and will generally be located in the center of the speaker bar. There will be a connector that resembles the connector on the docking cable that came with the iPod. Place the iPod on the docking station and turn on the speaker bar. Such is the case with the "2.1 Channel Bar Speaker with Dock for iPod" or the "Yamaha YAS-71BL Front Surround Speaker System"


iPod headphones use a 3.5mm audio cable.

honestytessy_0.jpg

Connect the iPod via the 3.5mm cable. If the speaker bar does not have a docking station it will have a 3.5mm cable connector with a jack like the headphone jack on iPod ear pods. Plug the 3.5mm cable in the iPod headphone jack. Plug the other end in the iPod. Turn on the speaker bar. The procedure is straight forward and Apple specifically designed the headphone jack with third party stereos in mind.


Select a song on the iPod and play it. The speaker bar will play the music from the iPod.

Hope that helped..

have a nice day.

Just purchased an ipod nano...how do I turn off the external speaker? even when I plug in the headphones, the external speaker stays on


Flick the button/switch on the top of the nano on and off 6 times leaving the orange bit not showing.

Now hold down the menu button and the middle button for 15 seconds until an apple2_bing.gif icon appears. SORTED!

now the speaker turns off when you plug the headphones in plus rest assured it doesn't reset the ipod and remove your songs.

MY IPOD IS CONECTED TO A GRIFFIN AUDIO AUX CABLE IN MY CAR, IT WAS WORKING THRU BOTH SPEAKERS AT UNTIL YESTERDAY WHEN I REALIZED IT WAS ONLY COMING OUT OF ONE SPEAKER. WHEN I MOVE THE IPOD IN CERTAIN...


It's one of 3 things.  Either you have a bad aux cable, the cable isn't pushed in all the way into the ipod/stereo, or you have a bad connection on the ipod itself.
To test theory #3, plug in some headphones and wiggle the cord around... good?
To test theory #2, give a good push on the ipod.  sometimes it appears to be seated all the way but isn't.
To test theory #1, well.... you just need to buy a new cord and give it a go.  
It would be very hard to believe that it's your vehicle causing the problem.  Ipods get a lot of use/abuse out of them with tension on the headphones.  This can cause internal loose headphone connections on the ipod itself.  Hopefully it's just not seated properly or your cord gave out on you.  Ipods aren't cheap.
Good Luck
