If I understand it, you have one set of headphones, and it isnt working on three different iPods.
If all three iPods aren't working properly, then it is more likely to be a common element, which would be the headphone or the cable.
It is practically impossible to solder those tiny cables BTW, so repair is not likely
One other thing, if the plug is not inserted fully into the jack, you can get just one speaker working. Do you have cases on the iPods? are they interfering with proper insertion of the plug?

SOURCE: speakers won't work when Ipod is docked

The problem is that Atlec Lansing used a low quality (piece of ****) plug/interface for the dock. If you pull the top of the ipod forward while it is pressed fully onto the docking station, you'll get a surprise. It will work. This problem stumped me for days. Now, the next question is how much tension is the proper amount not to degrade the cheap plug further or damage the ipod itself.

Cheers,
Jeff

SOURCE: Only 3 speakers work!

I took the bottom off my go play to have a look inside, the internal port is connected to one rear speaker grill and the other is blanked off, so no sound will come out of that one.

SOURCE: ipod touch speakers wont work

You may need to reset
To reset the iPhone or iPod Touch, press and hold down the Sleep/Wake button and the Home button simultaneously at the same time for at least ten seconds, then the LCD display will clear and the Apple logo appears on the black background. When Apple logo appears, reset is done.

SOURCE: 4g iPod touch, external speaker not working. Works

Try to put your ipod touch into recovery mode and then restore it. possibly the firmware of your ipod touch has some bugs which is restring the external speaker to work out. this should fix your ipod touch probably.

moz-screenshot-12.pngmoz-screenshot-13.pngmoz-screenshot-14.pngmoz-screenshot-15.png honestytessy.jpgHow to Connect an iPod to a Speaker Bar

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.

They wont give out sound there plugged into the front of the computer and in the outlet plug in BUT IT WONT WORK :( help


Be sure to plug into the "green" socket on the front of the computer, not the "pink" (microphone) or "blue" (headphone output from iPod) socket.

Try the speakers in the "green" socket on the back of the computer, to ensure that the speakers work, and the volume control is "high", and that you have not "muted" your speakers.

Some motherboards have a small "jumper" to enable/disable the front audio-output sockets.

Try the speakers when connected to the headphone-output from your iPod, to confirm that they work -- they could be quite quiet.

My ipod wont play sound aloud, it only works with the earphones, it used to work??


The speakers may be damaged, if you think water damage is the reason that the speakers are broken then follow these steps,
1. Unplug headphones. 2. Take you iPod to a dark place i.e room with light off. 3. Take a flash light and shine it in the headphone jack 4. Look inside the headphone jack. 5. If you see something red it is likely that your iPod got water in it and the speakers are shot.
Hope this helps, --Kaleb--

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

Headphones not playing in iPod


This is either cause by a damaged headphone socket in the iPod or a loose connection. The only way to solve it will involve opening the iPod case and inspecting the daughter board that the headphone socket is on.
