Why is the 'Hold' button stuck on?

History

Weather the hold switch is on or off, it says on my iPod screen that its on and therefore wont respond to anything i do to control it. i'm EXTREMELY frustrated with this problem and any information on how to fix it would be much appreciated.

I noticed you never got an answer to this. Are you still having this problem?

Hi Karla

the hold button can be replaced:

iPod Classic Headphone Jack & Hold Switch Replacement

this site also sell parts:

iPod Classic (Thin) Headphone Jack & Hold Switch

But it's not an easy job to open the iPod, and there might be something else to do. Try searching the answers from the answers index page.

If you decide to replace this post might be helpfull:
