Currently Being ModeratedAug 3, 2010 4:18 PM (in response to john_powers)I'm having this same issue! My iPod no longer plays through both speakers, only the speakers on the right. It's very strange and I can't seem to fix it. I can't find a setting or any way to fix it on Apple's website. Have you managed to fix the issue?Windows 7
Currently Being ModeratedAug 10, 2010 12:04 PM (in response to john_powers)i am having the same but opposite problem, my sound is only coming out of the left speaker or headphone. Is there anyone out there who knows how to fix this?Mac Mini, Mac OS X (10.4.6)
Currently Being ModeratedSep 9, 2010 2:57 PM (in response to john_powers)i have the same problem with mine. this site below should help if one feels comfortable enough opening the ipod to replace the headphone jack, just click the Headphone Jack & Hold Switch link. the relevant parts are listed and can be bought. the headphone jack/hold switch is 30 bucks, the opening tools a few more. i havent checked with an apple store how much it would cost for them to fix, but this is an option i might have to try.
Currently Being ModeratedSep 9, 2010 4:46 PM (in response to john_powers)here is a decent thread i found elsewhere. the last post on it. not exactly what was wrong with mine. but i opened mine up and the problem stemmed from the headphone jack area itself. i just wiggled it around until the sound worked in both ears and rigged it with a small piece of cardboard to keep it pushed down, put it back together and its luckily working right now. probably wont last long but who knows. im broke its my only option right now lol. good luck.
