    so, anytime i click the volume down button on my ipod, it gets stuck... so the volume goes all the way down, and if you click the volume up button, it goes up to the first bar, then immediately back down... the only way to stop it from doing so is to restart the ipod... any ideas?

    Sounds like something might be stuck behind the volume button restricting its movement up and down. I don't suggest opening your iPod, but you could try getting a can of compressed air and blowing as much as you can behind the volume button. Either that or you have a faulty iPod.

    How long have you had it? Did you press it too hard (or do you suspect you did)?

    If a button is persistently malfunctioning, there is a good chance that Apple will replace or fix your iPod under warranty for free.
