I'm not an iPod user, but if there is no balance control on it, then your headphones are half-dead - need replacement. Try to turn the connector while playing music, can you hear any static/music fragments in non-working earpohone?

I have both an MP3 and Ipod Nano and i have afew sets because if you tke them apart (the headphones) they are magnetic even with them together so if they are around electronic devises for to long they get screwed up and if they touch each other. and sometimes they just break/die.
All in all get a new headphones.

Have you tried using different head phones?

It sounds like a head phone problem not the iPod Nano it self.

9 times out of ten it is the jack that goes out first. Its the weakest point of the wire. actually with most cables, the ends are the weakest points. so what ever you do, don't bend them near the ends.

I actually have a headset for my cellphone that does the same thing. rather than buy a new one, I just keep it "forced" into a position where it will work. Thanks to the belt clip on my case.

That's a classic case of dead headphones. Buy new ones.

Happened to me as well, the wires were showing and they got cut. My cat chewed up the wires on the sony one, so I'm stuck with a Walkman and no headphones. *sigh*

Yep, its the headphones. Lucky you that it wasn't the headphone jack on the iPod itself. Otherwise you would've needed repairs.

Did you purchase AppleCare along with your iPod?

If you did, take it to the Apple store.
