I too am having this same problem. It is a 2nd gen iPod touch. I can play games and so on. However, there is no sound from the internal speaker or headphones and if I try to play music it go back to the previous menu like stated above.

Ok, go ahead and flame me but I have to say first and foremost that apple ***** and their customer support is the most useless thing I've ever encountered.
I have the exact same problem everyone else here is having with my touch 16gb 2G. I wont describe the problem as the OP nailed it. So the question is what's the solution? I've been all over the internet, searched up and down apple's forums and googled everything I could think of. Here's what I've found out. A LOT of people have this problem ... There is NO SOLUTION. No one will say this but if there was a fix someone would have posted it. Some claim it's a hardware problem... that may be. In which case the only solution is to bring it to an apple store. BUT GUESS WHAT? Apple's warranty is only good for a year and if like me you bought your POS touch second hand you have no recourse whatsoever.
Go ahead and keep searching if you want, but let's face it, when something goes wrong with an apple product you have the following options: Restart it, Reboot it, Reset it.
@omaroo1 Sorry to hear about your ipod not working but what's that random story about the zoo all about? who cares?

As far as I know there is no solution. omaroo never posted his supposed fix and the solution I got on a similar thread is as follows:
"I had tried unauthorizing and reauthorizing the computer, as per Ingo2711's request. I ended up taking it in to the Apple store today. They couldn't tell me exactly why it was happening, but I was able to replace the iPod, so as much as I'd like to know what happened, I'm happy just to have a working iPod again. Thanks for the help anyway, you guys!"
So as you can see, apple thinks that a solution means replacing your broken ipod with a new one. If like me yours is out of warranty I'm sure they will kindly offer to sell you a new one. To which I say... something I will refrain from saying for politeness' sake.

I just want to let everyone know how i fixed my issue.
I have the 6th Gen iPod Nano so i can't guarantee this will work for you but it did work for me.
i held down the power/sleep/wake button and + volume button until the apple logo appeared (approx 10 seconds).
a screen came up with what looked a little like system settings in yellow text (similar looking to a DOS/shell command screen)
i then pressed the sleep button and the screen turned off.
i then pressed the sleep button again and the iPod started as normal and my songs and playlists worked as usual.
Hopefully this will help someone.

Are you sure you restored this to "factory" condition, then set it up as a "new ipod". I too (with my 2G Touch) had this same issue and the restore to factory and new ipod set up worked. It's a pain to redo all of this, but all is well...for now. Hope it works for you too.
