    I have same problem with no sound when docking iPod into speakers.   Should I be forcing into the port?

    I just had the very same problem and I thought, "****! MY $300 headphones are bust" but they worked fine on my Mac.


    No radio signal either so it must be the iPod but before I contacted the seller I got a pin and checked inside the socket to find a massive piece of fluff. Back to normal.


    All those people "jamming" in their headphones, I can gaurantee you have the same issue. Fluff is stopping your connection.

    Just bought an Apple Ipod 7th gen & was getting no sound. I had a protective cover on it which i bought in Argos. The product description says "made for the ipod nano 7th generation, there is full usability in the case meaning you need never remove it". However, this is not true as with the case on the headphones won't fully push home & it won't fully push into the docking station I have: therefore I was getting no sound until I removed the case!"

    Ive had my gen7 for a little over a year now, and just yesterday, anything that plugs into the auxillary jack stopped working. ive tried pushing it in harder, twisting it, updateing the ipod, chargeing it compleatly, and it still doesn't work. Help?

    This happened to me, and I discovered it was just dirty. (I don't know how it got that dirty in three weeks, but that's the besides the point.) Try cleaning out the port on the iPod. Take a cotton swab and pull off some of the cotton so that it will fit in there, then lightly dampen the cotton left on the stick with rubbing alcohol or water. Gently twist it in there.
