Ok, so my sister has a 2nd gen iPod Touch that was immediately put into an Otterbox case to protect it. It's been a few months and now when she plugs in headphones, the screen flickers on and off if the headphone plug is moved around. I don't know what the heck is the problem and that darn Otterbox protects that thing. Any ideas? Thanks.

    You have a hardware issue there that would need to be serviced to fix. The socket may need to be replaced. If you are out of warranty, I would suggest a third-party repair shop. It will be cheaper than Apple.
