It's been fine for two years, but suddenly I cannot adjust volume via flywheel - and the sound also plays through the iPod itself.
I've recently upgraded to a new version of iTunes, and it happened after I downloaded new music.
Did you already try to reset your device?
How to reset iPod
I haven't yet - always worried about having to reinstate everything. But will if necessary.
Do you think this is the only way of solving it?
(Thank you for prompt reply, btw).
You will not lose data doing a reset. You will lose data and settings, if this does not work and you'll have to restore it.
I would use this:
Apple - Support - iPod Troubleshooting Assistant
Ingo2711 is right, you may have to restore your ipod.
Hope this helps.
Thanks. For some reason when I tried to reset I had to restore anyway.
But it seems to be working properly now - at least, through the earphones that came with it.
Will try with my headphones later.
Wish me luck - and thanks again for responding.
Best of luck.
Retrieving data ...
