iPod Touch 4G USB Playback Issues


Recommended Posts

Anyways I have a 4th gen ipod touch and when hooked up to my kenwood KDC-x395 there's a popping/crackling sound that I can hear randomly during every song I play, doesn't matter what volume it's at, the higher I go in volume obviously the louder the sound, it only recently started happening and i've had this ipod for 8 months now. At first I thought it might be the headunit but I ruled that out because I tested the ipod on 3 different headunits with USB and they all did the same, kenwood, alpine, and pioneer. Now my question is for those of you that have had the same issue how did you resolve it? Restoring the ipod? changing the format of the music files? I'm thinking it's a software issue but i'm not quite sure.

He said he tried 3 different head units. Why would you suggest a new cable?

Op, might sound dumb but is there any dirt or dust in the plug on the iPod?

I used compressed air to clean it out already, just aggravates me that this started out of the blue

Well ghost rider your problem was a cable. But that doesn't sound like op's issue.

Op have you tried a different iPod with your head unit?

Nope it's the iPod. Only way to fix this is to get a new iPod.

no I haven't, I ruled out the headunit being the problem when I tested my ipod on 3 other headunits and they all had the same issue, and those other 3 headunits always run ipods via USB, i'm thinking it has to do with the last time I restored it maybe something went wrong in one of the files, idk, gonna try to restore the ipod and see if the issue goes away.

Did you not even read my post dude?

Well if he wants to restore it first to see if he can save some money before throwing out $300 on a replacement iPod, why stop him? Let him try the free method before the expensive alternative.

Doubt it's going to work lol

And no he doesn't have to throw away his iPod. Call whoever he bought and get a new one. Say it's getting feedback. Hope you didn't drop it or get water damage so they have nothing to blame it on.

In the meantime use a diff iPod or use a 3.5 M&M jack.

By all means try the restore. I hope it works for you. For me it didn't
