Why must I pinch the bottom right corner to get sound?

I get no sound from the headphone jack or the docking connector, except when I pinch the bottom right corner of the Ipod.

ANSWERS:

It is a common issue with the 5th generation Ipod video. You have a loose/poor connection of the audio chip to the logic board. So every time you apply pressure to it you close the connection and get sound again. To remedy this you can do one of three things. Purchase a new logic board, have a professional repair(reflow( you logic board or you can try to reflow it yourself well sort of :). Here is the how to forums.macnn/103/ipod-iphone-... Hope this helps and good luck with your iPod.
