iPod seems to work, but cant hear anything

My 5TH gen ipod video seems to be operating alright, but as I was listining to it I could hear what sounded like some type of interference and shortly after I could not hear any thing else. I can still charge it, and navigate the menus but dont hear anything. Any clues?

toyo, of course make sure that it is not your headphones that are malfunctioning. Also, hook your iPod up to a dock connector and see if you get sound that way. If you do, I would first insert and pull out the headphones a couple of times in rapide succession, the headphone jack might be either stuck or have dirt in it. If cleaning does not work, I would think about replacing this first. The 5th gen has some issues with the audio IC loosing contact. Squeeze next to the click wheel at the 4 o'clock position and see if that brings the sound back, if it does, you can either replace your logic board or replace it. Hope this helps, good luck.
