After I got iTouch 3.0 software update, for music/movies/YouTube I don't have a volume adjuster.


Thanks in advance.

    this is a new feature.
    when you do not have headphones plugged in OR have your iPod docked into speakers, the volume controls have been removed. i actually think it makes it all look a lot neater without the unnecessary volume controls when docked. i really like it.

    Yeah, really useful - NOT. With my Touch docked on the treadmill, I can no longer turn the volume up high enough to hear it. In the noisy environment of the gym, I needed to turn the volume on the dock AND the Touch up. Now I can't turn up the Touch and can't hear my movies. 3.0 s-u-c-k-s

    Double click on the Home button (settable in Settings, General, Home, iPod Controls (ON)) to show the volume control.

    well i'm sorry to hear that. i guess that is a problem, but for MY dock changing the volume on the iPod doesn't have an effect on the volume coming from the speakers. aesthetically for me it's just nicer. i can understand your frustration.
    maybe you can get round it by turning the volume up to full while you have headphones plugged in, then plugging it into your dock?

    I'm missing my own volume slider as well... can't get it back no matter what I do. Apple Gen. Bar is fully booked - can't get in to talk to someone... Frustrated.

    My settings already match what you suggested, but I still do not have the volume slider on the iPod Touch after upgrading.

    I've had this problem, too. I wanted to listen to a track through my 2nd gen's speaker When I unplugged the headphones, the volume bar disappeared and no sound came from iPod's speaker.

    This is an odd one because I've updated to 3.0 and the volume slider has been unaffected. It's still there.

    My volume control shows up while it is in the dock as well. Have you reset your iPod? My advice would be to start there.

    I figured out how to fix it. The reason it happened is b.c. your dock turned off while ur iphone/itouch was plugged in.

    1. Plug ur iphone into your dock (If airplane mode asked to turn on say yes)
    2. Play a song
    3. Pull out iphone/itouch while song is playing.
    4. Problem solved ur volume bar should be there now.

    If the volume bar is gone, can't you just use the volume buttons on the side of the iPod? Just a thought..

  • Vanderham Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
    Iagree. This is very frustrating. I now cannot adjust the volume when I use iTrip in the car unless I plug in headphones too, which is a pain. Anyone got any more suggestions?

    Apple....pls put back the volume bar in your next update,

    FallenFoX is right!!
    I just made one small change on it. Now I have my volume bar back again.

    I've plugged in the dock AND the headphones in the Line out connector of the dock.
    Played a song and pulled the iPod out.

    Voila. Volume bar back.

    I was having the same problem and googled for a solution! I found this and tried it just now. FallenFoX's solution worked perfectly. Thank you!
