Has anyone else had a problem with their ipod hold button not working?

To get my ipod on and off hold I have to REALLY push the hold button all the way to the side. Even then it usually takes 4 or so tries to get it off of hold. Has anyone else had this problem?

sounds defective, might want to return it for a new one.

Yeah, I have had it for about 10 months now, I wonder if they will still cover it.

well it is under warranty for another two months so they should fix it or give you a new one since it is still covered

My wife's 2nd gen iPod had the opposite problem--a really weak hold switch. It wouldn't stay in position. In the first week she realized it was a problem and exchanged it for another one.

Your warranty is for a year, so take it into an Apple Store and get a replacement.

Hey
They will still cover it, so take it in, but theyll have you mail it out in a bag to apple(they provide bag + Shipping) and then apple will 1) repair it or 2) give you a refurb same model. I know i would definetely want them to give me a new one :D but they dont i have had to send an ipod back because of a control problem and that is what they did, was to replace it with a refurb and that is their standard policy

I had a problem similar to this. It turned out that the front "white part" of the iPod had become ever-so-slightly off center from the rear "silver part". I could just barely detect the difference in alignment by running my finger around the interface. To solve the problem, I applied gentle pressure to the two parts (in opposite directions) and, after a very surprising LOUD cracking noise, everything was re-aligned and better.

Rather than risk doing something bad to the iPod and potentially voiding your warranty, you should probably just send it in for replacement. Anything that involves applying pressure to your iPod and results in a loud cracking noise worries me. I've heard that the turn around time on replacement iPods is incredibly fast.
