How do I fix a shortage in this iPod?

when i put my headphones in, the audio wouldnt come on, it would make an odd sound. But if i force the headphones in, the audio would come on, but i would have to hold in the force for it to let the audio continue to play, if i dont force it the sound would continue to not work. How do i get the audio working again?

First I'd try to clean the jack to make sure that you have no debris etc in there. Do not stick anything in to clean, try some of the pressurized airspray you can purchase to clean keyboards and other electronic equipment. If you find that your jack is clean you may have to think about replacing the logic board. The audio jack is soldered onto it, of course if you have another jack you can always try to solder it one your current board. iPod Nano 3rd Generation Logic Board Replacement Good Luck.
