    Okay, so I've had my iPod touch for a year now, and I've never had problems. Last month, it started to cut out the audio in the left ear of the headphones. I thought it was the headphones itself but after reding 6 pairs, in the iPod and computer, I found it was the iPod itself. I sent it into future shop to get repaired, beause my apple warrenty wore off. When I got it back, everything worked except there was no speaker. I would unplug the headphones and nothing would happen. Then this week, I turned it on and it was stuck on the speaker, like it was stuck on the headphones. NOW it's switching back and fourth, from the speakers to the headphones, then it'll stop, and start switching back and fourth again. THEN it'll be on both the speakers AND headphones, at the same time. It's really frustrating. I can't play anything without it stopping on it's own. I've just restored it on my computer, and found that it's doing the exact same thing. So restoring did nothing. Rebooting didn't do anything either.

    What do I do? Is anyone else have these problems? Do you think future shop just made it worse?

    I live in Canada, if that has to do with anything.

    Insomnia did this too me, something else too.

    Your other speaker actually does work just listen closely, The volume doesn't increase on it.

    You might try deleting the things you got off of cydia and see if that does the fix, It did it for me.

    Well since Apple warrentys last for 1 year. It should still be covered. Assuming you have a 3gen. Call Apple.

    Then it'll be expired. Unless you got the Applecare package.

    Do you have a 3rd Generation iPod Touch or a 2nd Generation?
