I have an 80GB iPod which has just developed a fault...

Initially, I could not hear it when it played... I rebooted it and all was OK until it was turned off.. next time I turned it on I could see that it was playing but could not hear it again...

again, did the 2-button trick and it played but no sound...

now, I can hear it as I hold down the Play button but, of course, only for about 2 seconds, as this turns it off...

anyone got any bright ideas??

If I reformat it and then spend hours re-loading all my music, will this make any difference or do we reckon it's just knackered and needs replacing??

Although it hasn't been dropped/crushed whatever, my personal feeling is that the problem is not electronic and more likely to be mechanical...

Where's the right-click button?
QUOTE Thanks

How old is it? I'd get in touch with Apple.
