When I am using the iPod on my iPhone, the volume control slider sometimes does not work. I can increase or decrease the volume, but on the touch display the volume slider does not move, even when I try to drag it to increase/decrease the volume. It always goes back to the same spot. Anyone experience this problem?

    There is a Volume Limit setting in the iPod Settings area. Worth a look.

    i have experienced this off and on with my original iphone and my iphone 3gs...

    i think it is some software thing... the hard keys will adjust the volume when this is happening.

    be well

    Is happening for me too. The volume does adjust up or down but the indicator stays in the same place.

    I have the Volume Limit option turned off, so that doesn't seem to be a contributing factor.

    I have the same issue, it's maddening!

    I can drag the slider on screen, and it'll adjust the volume, but the slider slings back to its original position.

    The hardware switch on the side will adjust the volume just fine, but the slider will not move (same for the earphone volume adjust with the standard iPhone earbuds). I have volume limit off

    It's gotta be a software bug.

    I just noticed something: if you double-tap the home button to bring up the iPod controls, the volume slider there works flawlessly.

    I have the opposite problem. The volume slider works fine on the display, but the volume down button on the side sometimes does not work, only volume up.

    Yes, but this is only happening now after 2 months of having the 3GS. Why is this happening now? Any luck on how to fix this?

    I have just noticed this problem as well. In my case the volume changes sometimes but not others but the slider always goes back to where it started. Also I have noticed that sometimes it will move when I use the volume buttons on the side and other times it wont, but the volume does change!

    Must be a software bug, hopefully it will be addressed soon!

    Having the same trouble on my 3GS, and it's a double issue because I use the "Night Stand" app which uses the iPod volume as the alarm clock volume. I've just read this thread and realised the volume control buttons on the left do work but the slider doesn't. I can't determine when it starts to "not work" too, as sometimes it does but more often than not it doesn't.

    Sometimes the slider actually changes the volume but it doesn't change its position too, which confuses the heck out of me (not difficult I know, but . . .).

    Found this thread hoping to find a solution. I just updated to 3.1.2 and it seems to have fixed the issue.
  • rjbanker Level 1 (0 points)
    I am having the same exact issue on OS 3.1.2. I also experienced this issue on 3.1.1. Powering off the iphone and turning it back on temporarily fixed the issue and I haven't been able to track down when the issue starts.

    I just got my new 32gb 3rd Gen iPod Touch on monday, and I constantly have the same issue.
    I have 3.1.2, no volume limit turned on.
    Hope apple fixes this soon.

    I also have the same issue of the volume slider jumping around and not being able to control the volume. I do believe I have narrowed it down to one app. Does anyone else have this app and if so can you do a few tests with using it and seeing the problem and then removing the app and seeing if the problem is gone. I am not using the alarm clock app Awaken NOW. The problem app that i have narrowed down that seems to cause the issue is *A+ Alarm Night Clock/Music by Hana Mobile version 1.6* and the same with earlier versions. problem goes away on restart as others have mentioned. After removing app in question and using Awaken the problem is gone. Immediately after putting back in the bad app and using it for a few minute the problems is back. Does anyone else have the same problem. If so this issue is solved.
