Are you sure that the headphone plug is inserted all the way into the iPod? If that doesn't cure the problem then you have a bad connection to the headphone jack and will have to send it to Apple for repair, if it's still under warrantee, or send it to a third party repair facility which may cost less money.

thanks for the reply. The headphone is fully inserted,yet only the right ear works...but whenever i tilt or kinda push the headphone jack to the right or left,both ears work but whenever there's a little shake or i just move the ipod,the left one stops working. i'll probly get it to a 3rd party repairer cuz its outta warranty-(got my nano 2k5 Dec.but thanks tho.

Before you try a third party place, you should take it in to the Apple store if you can. I had the same problem with my 60 gb iPod video, and it was out of warranty as well. I took it in and a guy there tested it out with another pair of headphones. When he saw that the problem was indeed the iPod, he brought me a new one without asking about my warranty at all. So if you have a store close to you, it's worth trying to go there. I might have just been lucky, but they should replace it or fix it for you.
