One of my friends asked me to have a look at her Ipod Nano since only one of the earphones was working.

Trying different sets of earphones made no difference, so the problem was clearly in the Ipod.

I removed the bottom white cover from the Ipod by prising it out using my finger nail, of all things.

I removed the small screw that holds the white ear phone socket in place and then pulled the socket forward.

After a little examination I noticed a small crack in the ribbon cable.  I scraped back the insulation then soldered the break.  The earphone was working again.  I now just had to re-assemble the Ipod.
