No sound. Mainboard, Harddrive or something else?
Hello, I currently have a 5th gen ipod that will not play any sound except for a very light static through the headphones. (the static plays whether there is music playing or not)
The ipod will connect to the computer via the usb cable and I can view, delete or sync music without any problems. Once the music is synced, I can view it in the ipod menu and click on play. The music progress bar then will move to the end, and it will continue to the next song. The only problem is that there is no sound.
I can also hear the wheel click but it sounds like an internal speaker in the ipod.
I have already replaced the headphone jack already with no results.
If I put the ipod into diagnostic mode and test the headphone jack, it tells me that it's working. The ipod also detects when the headphones are removed.
I have also tried another set of headphones, so that's not the issue
I also do not have a dock to test this on. So I don't know if it will work that way or not.
My question is, what is the next step to debugging or next component to replace?
Is this a good question?
