no sound coming out of ipod using multiple ear phones and car jack. can hear the static sound (normal when just starting), but nothing else. have tried apples 5 steps and still nothing. help
You did the 5Rs, so that includes resetting it (with press/hold two buttons) and restoring it (using iTunes)?
If so, I think the most likely cause is a faulty headphone jack on the iPod.
