    Hey guys, I need some help,
    i did'nt do anything special with my ipod or anything, and i wanted to listen to some music, and all of a sudden, the plug won't fit in the jack, it goes half in, now i've tried alcohol cleaning, doesn't work, i can see some dust in it, and ive tried to get rid of it with a toothpick, but what should i do? go to a apple store, i just can't seem to get the dust out.

    I had the same problem. There was a piece of paper or tissue stuck in the jack. I took it to the local Apple store, who basically said they couldn't do anything. Eventually got it fixed for £2 by a guy who mends watches on our local market. Just needed a really tiny pair of tweezers. Hope this helps.
