sounds like you are due for a good cleaning of the jack. Use some compressed "canned air" and blow it out good. If no change after cleaning, it may be time to replace the jack.

I'v already tried cleaning it out. thats not the problem. where could I get the jack replaced? my apple warranty is over, so apple isn't really an option.

Paul Domanico, depending on how handy you are, you can try to replace your head phone jack yourself. Also, depending on your geographical location, you may have no trouble getting a new jack? Check this video and see if it works for you. Here is the part and I am sure you can get it at multiple places. the general instructions for your iPod are right here. Good Luck
