Ringing noise

A few weeks ago, I turned on my iPod and suddenly there was a very noticeable ringing sound in the background. I figured it'd just go away, but it hasn't. I have tried my headphones and MP3s on my computer and there's no ringing there, so it's definitely my iPod. I performed a software reset to no avail. What's worse is that I think it's getting louder. Does anyone know what, exactly, is wrong with my iPod? Do I owe Apple a call? Thanks in advance for your help.

I've had this problem not with an iPod but with a couple of PDA's in the past. I don't know how loud it is on your iPod but on my PDA's you almost couldn't hear it unless I was using it at night with virtually no other sounds around. That sound wasn't covered under warranty because "electronics will sometimes emit slight humming sounds." I guess it's something along the same lines as a flourescent light emitting a humming noise. It wouldn't hurt to call Apple to find out if they will cover it though. If they do authorize a repair make sure they know how quiet other sounds around need to be in order to hear it. If they just turn it on and don't hear it they're likely to just send it back saying no problem found.

Thanks for the reply. That's a good idea -- to tell them how quiet it needs to be, that is.
