Why do my songs only play for 45 seconds?

Ever since the last time I synced with my computer my songs will only play for about 40 seconds, then go off. I have to hit the button to bring the screen back up, it is on the "Play" screen. I can hit the play arrow and the song begins playing again from the exact spot that it stopped. I have tried re-syncing it without any improvement.

Never mind - I found out the problem. My earplug was not pushed all the way in - it needs to be flush with the ipod or the song will go off when the screen goes blank. I found this resolution on the Apple site. Thanks. Sort of feel stupid!!

You should try restoring it to its factory conditions using iTunes. That's of course after you back up your music

I just received replacement for 1st generation iPod which had recently been recalled because of a defective battery. The replacement I received (6th generation - very nice) kept shutting off before finishing a song. I tried the suggestion to put in ear plugs so it is flush with the iPod. It works! Thanks!
